    A Prayer For The Men We Love…

    I wrote this prayer today, I pray it blesses you and that you may add it to your spiritual arsenal.   A PRAYER FOR THE MEN WE LOVE… Dear God, may I not react to his flaws, but through Divine intuition recognize his need. May I extend him grace with the same patience and mercy that you extend it to me… God, even if I’m not always happy, may this relationship make me holy. Let the offenses purify the vanity of my pride and the hidden motives of my ego. Guard my tongue, may my words not manipulate or wound, but bless, inspire and restore. GIve my heart the vision to see him…

    Do You Know How to Love Your Man Like God Does?

    I had a deep conversation with my teaching partner, Melinda Williams, two days ago, it was about love, more specifically, the way we love our men. In the middle of our talk she said: “Shannon, we need to ask God to show us how to love these men like He does…”   Wow! That hit home. I immediately started praying that prayer over the man I love and the three Kings I am raising. Tears flowed as did repentance.   Divorcing three-years-ago, after a 17-year marriage, I had a story. My version of the story. It painted me in many ways as the victim and martyr and yet, when a relationship reaches Holy completion, the…

    Rewrite Your Script

      We can choose at any moment to rewrite or redirect the story that is unfolding in and through us. – Shannon Evette   A while ago, I visited the place where I grew up. It had been a while since I had visited this place; I had been avoiding this return for a while. Why? Well, this was the place that I was hurt in my life, experienced trauma and created memories that I did not want to revisit. So, I stayed away. Have you ever been there? We hide from our fears and tears, we avoid the memories that pierce our souls. Yet, somehow the old pain persists until our soul leads…

  • Worthiness

    Embracing Your Worth

    Embracing your worth is an act of faith, humility and raw courage. Refusing to shrink into the shadows of life honors the creative glory and genius God desires to reveal through your life. Living with a goal of authentic happiness is a confirmation of self-love.   When we say yes to our worthiness, we accept our Sacred Role in this life, our Divine purpose. We yield to an inner knowing that we are made for more. We stop fighting against our own well-being. We find the courage to reclaim our joy and freedom. We begin the life elevating process of self-acceptance. We get into agreement with God.   Worthiness will empower you to…

    The Key To Supernatural Weight Loss

      So many miraculous weight loss, wellness and healing testimonies over the years have taught me one thing…with God ALL things are possible. Even that stubborn 20 pounds that’s lingered for years, can be released instantly once a decision is made. The decision that changes everything is to tap into the divine discipline and ancient eating truths as a foundation of our foundation for weight loss.   Our weariness, overwhelm and self-neglect is met with a glorious invitation to be made NEW, to let go of the inner-weight and shed the outer-weight, not through rigid, fad-based- irresponsible diet trends but through accepting our spiritual wisdom.   We can lay this burden down and…

    What Are You Really Hungry For?

      How much of our daily eating is prompted by external and emotional triggers, vs. true internal hunger? Weight decreases with consciousness. When we eat from TRUE hunger rather than blind habit, when we ask ourselves, “WHY am I eating?”, we might be surprised to learn that the majority of our eating if we have struggled with weight is NOT physical hunger at all. It is a host of other factors, spiritual, mental, emotional, habitual that cause us self-inflicted harm.  God made our bodies and divinely engineered them to regulate our weight through the call of physical hunger. The problem is, we get the wires crossed, the signals confused. We may find ourselves…

    Worthiness and the POWER of Words…

    If you stopped right now and asked yourself, “Where did I get my idea of self from?” Like many of us, you may determine that the voices of childhood still ring in your head as truth. Many of the words that were spoken came from those who were struggling with their own demons, worthiness and fears. These are words that distorted our well-being and sense of healthy self-esteem.  Soul-killing words of rejection have the power to diminish our birthright of worthiness. Hurtful words can reprogram us to abandon our dreams. As adults, many of us find ourselves fighting against the tapes that were recorded on our subconscious long before we had the ability…

    Don’t Underestimate Your Power To Change And Grow

    “We are not trapped or locked up in these bones. No, no. We are free to change. And love changes us. And if we can love one another, we can break open the sky.” -Walter Mosley Healing has many layers. Each day as we rise, we remove the old, grave clothes of a broken identity rooted in low self-evaluation. We make a conscious choice to come up higher in our honor of ourselves and our Creator. We are taking a courageous mission back home –to the truth that we are made in the image of God. We are one with our Creator. Our worthiness is settled, it is a birthright. It is our task to…

  • Self-Esteem

    The Un-Holiness of Low Self-Esteem

    “If my aim is to prove I am “enough” the project goes on to infinity-because the battle was already lost on the day I conceded the issue was debatable.” – Dr. Nathaniel Branden Self-esteem is a core human need. Self-esteem determines how we act, think and reveal ourselves in life and relationships. The essence of self-esteem is worthiness. To believe we are worthy of meaningful life, love and happiness is a function of healthy self-esteem. Self-esteem is also rooted in our belief in our ability, adequacy or competency to handle life and deal with change. Where unworthiness might whisper, “I don’t deserve it,” low self-esteem whispers, “I can’t handle it.”  Self-worth is the value…

    Get Gangster About Your Breakthrough

      My mother grew up in South Central LA… Watts to be exact. My mother excelled in education, secured advanced degrees and even worked for some of the top judges, doctors and Fortune 500 companies, both as a certified mediator and in the field of industrial psychology. She speaks with the elegance and eloquence of a refined and well-educated woman. But don’t get it twisted… if you push her, South Central will rise! Cross her in a particular way and her grace goes a little GANGSTER. I remember when I was younger, when one of our cousins came over to visit. Well, this cousin, unbeknownst to my Mom at the time, was doing…
