Music City, USA

I happened upon a sweet lake chalet in Mount Juliet while combing through our next adventure accommodations. We weren’t just celebrating our anniversary, but my husband’s 40th birthday. This trip needed to be special.

Here is a quick overview of our recent trip to Nashville.

When I stumbled upon the chalet, I was a little concerned about the distance, which we actually ended up loving! It was about 20 to 25 minutes to Nashville, depending on the traffic. And the quiet time in the evening was amazing! We spent every single evening enjoying a bug free gorgeous glowing sunset.

We experienced the Opry, Broadway and of course some famous hot chicken that may or may not have left Mr. B regretting his choice. Our best meal was actually at Jason Aldean’s place. We were really grateful for our quiet lake home at the end of this day, for those of you who just know, you KNOW how loud Broadway can be! But the music and the atmosphere was quite pleasant and we enjoyed our day of sauntering down the sidewalk in the warm southern sun.

Here are some hit and misses:

  1. The hot chicken he had for lunch left him with a terrible taste in his mouth, be sure when you are ordering hot chicken, it is southern hot chicken and not just buffalo chicken.
  2. Wear comfortable shoes for Broadway, and preferably closed toes! We saw lots of boots, but is was sweltering hot and there were some nasty city puddles. Pack hand sanitizer!
  3. DO visit Madame Tussaud’s! This was really fun!

4. Tickets to the Opry are a MUST even if you don’t have a show itinerary quite yet, book those seats! We were able to see Riders in the Sky and LOTS of others, well worth the price and experience. If it’s your birthday or anniversary, let them know! Also, if you can manage a trip to the Ryman, do it!

5. If you aren’t a bar scene type, don’t stay on the strip. If you enjoy the bar scene and are going to need an Uber to make it home safely, stay as close to Broadway as you can. The highway driving can be frustrating. Don’t drink and drive!

6. Visit Boot Country- BUY BOOTS! They’re affordable and when in Nashville…

7. Stop by and visit Cooter’s Place Nashville

8. Pack sunscreen and sunglasses!

9. We visited Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage and we really enjoyed this. The staff was friendly and the tour was incredible. If you are a history buff it is a must on the to-do list.

10. Stay on the lake if you can! Here you can find several cool pads to crash (maybe the same chalet we stayed in), it was an easy drive, cute accommodations and we really enjoyed the sunsets. We are truly enjoying this Airbnb adventure so far this year and are already planning our fall trip.

Tennessee should be on your list of places to go, whether you are a family or a couple, we were impressed with the variety of things to do and the kind way they have about their city. There are a lot of things to do within a short drive from Nashville and we are planning on going back.

Post your comments and let us know how you enjoyed your Tennessee stay! All in all, I would score this property and the area, an 8 out of 10. We hope this helps a little bit!

Live, love.

Sweet Home Alabama

The best Mother’s Day gift I’ve received was our recent trip to Gulf Shores, Alabama. Some of you may think that sounds crazy or selfish, but look, moms get tired. And sometimes, moms want to spend some time away with dad.

When my husband asked if we could get away for that particular week, the only answer was a definite yes.

We desperately needed some time away from the hustle and bustle of being a moving and grooving kind of family.

Psalm 95:5-6 The sea that he made belongs to him, along with the dry land that his hands formed. Come! Let us worship and bow down; let us kneel in the presence of the Lord, who made us.

There is no doubt that standing by the ocean will put you in awe of our Lord and savior, and our Creator. The masterpiece that is this Earth is so wondrous that it can steal your breath away. Visiting the ocean is a recharge for me.

I’m excited this is our first travel review. When we arrived at our condo I was pleasantly surprised and excited. Our check in and directions were easy to follow. I appreciate the security of the facility.

It is a perfect size for a week’s stay. It’s not too overwhelmingly large and not too tiny. We had fresh linens and a bottle of red wine waiting for us. The condo smelled amazing and there was light music to fill the empty space when we stepped in.

It was clean and comfortable. But most importantly, the view is spectacular from this particular unit. Every window has an ocean view.

You cannot ask for a better spot in Gulf Shores to watch the sun sink down into the horizon. Every single evening was a cotton candy sky that faded into a burnt array of color. The temperature was perfect in the evening to sit and listen to the families still playing in the pool.

We were able to visit Alligator Alley which is a short drive north and I was so blown away by their commitment to conservation and to their guest experience. This wasn’t a novelty stop and that is always important to me when we visit places on vacation that support wildlife conservation.

Our mornings were spent on the deck watching our fellow beach goers as they lugged their gear down for a day at the shoreline. The newly installed deck makes it an easy and safe trek across the dunes, which are restricted entry as to not disturb the summer turtles. It is perfect for that first cup of coffee. There is a Keurig and a regular pot. We shopped for all of our breakfast essentials and beverages at a local Wal-Mart. But there are also 2 tiny beach convenience stores not too far. We had no problem finding the little things we needed like pickles or extra sunscreen because they are a short drive either way.

We drove to the end of the peninsula to visit Fort Morgan and it did not disappoint. If you are a history buff I highly recommend this experience. It was incredible to see the rich history connected to our nation preserved so beautifully at the Fort.

There is so much to do at The Wharf and they have awesome shopping!

Top 10 Things To Do:

10. Visit the USS Alabama We stopped on our way to our condo. The admission fee was reasonable. Wear comfy shoes because there are climbing nooks and crannies and your feet will thank you. Also, sunscreen those babies!

9. Eat at Picnic Beach– they offer fresh ingredients and a great selection of games for families. This was my favorite meal while on vacation. They have turf flooring so you can rest your toes too.

8. Ride the Big Wheel at The Wharf– $5! You can’t beat that price! The ride was lengthy and the view was incredible. *price at the time of our visit, this may change with the season*

7. Go to The Hangout-tons of souvenir shops and places to eat. You might even catch a great music festival! You can walk the beach here and you can shop. It was quiet when we went because they were preparing for the huge music festival! There is pizza, ice cream, drinks, and much more all within walking distance.

6. Have air brushed personalized hats or tee-shirts made at a local Christian business called Fric & Frac. Our kids loved the unique souvenir that is so different from the normal stuff you find on vacay. There are so many designs and things to choose from, and it’s ready…super fast! We orderd 5 hats and 1 tee shirt and it was done within an hour. These are high quality air brushed products. We walked away with a volleyball, Pokemon, Zelda, and 2 Star Wars caps that our kids loved! If you are looking to buy one high quality souvenir, this is it for the $$.

5. Visit Fort Morgan. Bring your own snacks and water and plan on spending at least 2 hours there. There is SO much to see from the Fort itself to watching the endangered nesting Osprey on the tower. As well as water fowl and little sunbathing lizards. Wear secure shoes. I would not suggest flip flops of slide on sandals. Don’t forget the sunscreen!

4. Ride the ferry to Dauphin Island.

3. Enjoy night swim’s in the condo pools. Or enjoy a dip in the hot tub. The hot tub doesn’t allow for children under the age of 14. That is nice if you are visiting without your kiddos.

2. Visit Alligator Alley. You should plan to spend about 2 or 3 hours here. You wouldn’t want to miss a show or the boardwalk into their amazing swamp. You can purchase buckets of nutritional pellets for the gators to munch on and we truly enjoyed the hands on experience. The educators are kind and patient and amazing with children. If you have small children be sure to pack a stroller in case their little legs get tired of walking. They have really cool souvenirs in their gift shop too.

  1. ENJOY THE BEAUTIFUL BEACHES. We are beach bums at heart. My husband and I have traveled all over the world. We’ve been to some of the most amazing beaches you can make it to. We truly enjoyed our experience at the condo and our gracious host has become someone we will now turn to for our future trips down to the Gulf. Soak up the sunshine, enjoy the marine life, and make memories that last. Vacations are essential for the health of a family and we will be returning with children, *cough*, teenagers in tow. While walking the beach we encountered sting rays, dolphins, crabs and many types of sea bird. Drop me a message on Facebook or Instagram and let me know how you enjoyed your stay. Things to pack for the beach: cooler, sand toys, be sure and purchase an umbrella at a local store to save yourself money, bottled water, floaties, flashlights for crabbing at night, and sunscreen! If you can find a cheap sand cart and have the room-pack it! Don’t forget to take your flip flops down with you because the boardwalk can be hot on tiny toes.

Contact me today to have your Airbnb featured on our site. We love to feature family friendly and Christian establishments. Now more than ever families rely on web searches to prepare for their vacations. Oftentimes they will bypass reviews because reviews can be skewed.

Live, love.

The Sharp Edges of The Heart

Cooper The Creek Dog

“Under His wings you will find refuge.”

— Psalm 9:1

I think the important thing about pain, is that I’m not really sure how long it takes to stop hurting. Maybe I am just not good at healing. I bandage. But I have always been able to move on and forward through pain, And equally good at letting people know that there is no magic amount of time for it to go away. You just have to be careful who you cut with your sharpened edges.

Sunday I took some models down to the creek to practice some photography shots. I was prepared for the day. I had my notes, my wardrobe, and my lenses, everything I thought I needed.

I apparently packed my giant over-sized stupid unhealed heart as well.

I’ve had to re-home dogs because of life circumstances. I’ve had pets come and go. I know that in reality most of us have. It is such a big part of life. The kids and I have always taken in animals that needed homes as well. Maybe even when we shouldn’t have. But there again, lies the heart.

While setting up this pose, a fella and his son stopped by in their SUV and attempted to talk me into taking a stray dog who had been dumped at an abandoned property. They had been feeding and caring for her for two days.

How could I leave her there? The girls begged me to take her. The girls begged me to go back.

But I didn’t.

I left her there because the pain of losing Cole was so devastating that it has taken weeks for me to get through my day without shedding a tear. A hard, hot, heartfelt tear for a rescue dog.

Cole changed my life. He changed my life forever. My husband still walks by his box of ashes every single day and says, “Good boy, Coley”. I’m typing through hot tears now. Can you picture a grown man doing that?

After a few hours, I felt bad. When our 19 year old got home, I sent him back down to the creek. The least I could do is take her in and find her owners. I mean, surely someone didn’t just dump her out there. He came back empty handed.

An hour later he went back, but this time, she hopped right in the car with him. Maybe she figured this was her last chance. My husband had told the girls we couldn’t keep her. Yet hours later, there he sat with a 50 lb. dog in his lap, in our kitchen floor, picking ticks off of her. By Monday, she had a vet appointment and a rabies shot. And I spent 35 minutes bawling my eyes out in the shower asking God, why? Why now? Because my heart is just so exhausted and broken. It’s too soon and I am not ready. But He knows why and He knows His timing.

Now she has a collar. And now she has a name.

So?

We have a dog named Cooper.

No one claimed her. She doesn’t have a microchip. And my children all believe she was sent by God to deliver us from the excruciating pain of losing Cole. My daughter said, “Mom, it’s like when something gets taken away, God replaces it with something better.” she caught the wince that shuddered through me, but I understand what she means. How can I argue with her opinion of our all-mighty, all-knowing, all-loving Father?

Maybe, Miss Cooper will help us heal. At the very least, help the children heal. So, here she is. She seems to constantly stare into my face begging for my love, and I am working on giving it to her.

Live, love.

3 Days Time

I ran across the image above and it resonated with me so much this Good Friday morning.

John 3:16
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Everyone knows this verse.

It wasn’t until this week that I realized just how much I’ve transformed since giving my life to Christ. Then, yesterday, the significance of the week and the timing of this realization? Nothing short of God speaking to my soul. It is the Holy Ghost pushing me through these last few weeks and giving me the strength to realize my full potential and my full strength in Christ Jesus.

I am not a perfect Christian. But none of us are. We strive for excellence, but should not strive for perfection. That is a rouse that has been clothed in “success”, especially online, for a long time. It happens in church. It happens in school. And it happens in general life. Look to Him and He will save you from your own perfection. Because it was only He, who was truly all that was good and perfect and just.

What I thought of Calvary before I was saved, even after I suppose, is that He died so that I may live.

Breathe.

My organs are working.

I eat food and drink water.

It wasn’t until this week, when I let go of some “stuff” holding me back that I realized what He died for us FOR. And why!

He loved us so much that He wanted us:

TO LIVE.

Not just to breathe, eat food and be merry. But to LIVE, guilt-free in Him. He died so you can let go of anger, hurt, regret, pain, sorrow, and frustration. He died so that you may live forever with your loved ones in the afterlife Kingdom. He died so we can love our families and our own communities and truly SEE what is in front of us. But not just that, we are destined, those who are saved, to truly LIVE for the blessings of the Kingdom and to be the Chosen children of our creator. His desire is that we don’t just throw money at the world’s problems, but that we look into our own communities and get our hands dirty with the love of our fellow man, woman and child. That when we see hurt and despair we preach the gospel and allow generations of families to change and break their strongholds. He wants us to truly live in Him. What is the most sacred gift you can give someone? The gift of life. And when He comes to you, there is no looking away. You can deny Him, but He is still there, waiting patiently for you.

So many people put their faith in vapid spirituality, only to put their heads on their pillow at night and still long for the comfort that you can only find in Scripture. When you realize the power that is in the living Word of God, you will understand creation. You will understand yourself and your children. You can visibly see the battle between good and evil. Tear your veil! Rip it away! Seek God’s grace today! You simply have to ask. It is yours.

You will truly understand why Jesus died for you, so that you may truly LIVE.

Pick up the Bible today. Download the Bible app. But whatever you do, do not let another day go without tending to your salvation.

Live, love.

The Way God Saves

Buddy is the church cat. For those of you who aren’t from a rural area, church cats are fairly common. Almost all of the tiny churches have them. Buddy is cross-eyed. But Buddy was my gentle reminder that the Lord is kind, and good, and generous. Because he put so much sweet personality into Buddy, that his cross-eyes only add to his Southern charm. What cat has patience for a “wallering” baby? Buddy does. He wears his kitty heart on his sleeve.

My husband and I drove to Bowman Old Time Pentecostal Church in Blue Eye, Missouri on a gray spring Saturday. I didn’t start appreciating living in the state of Missouri until a few years ago. When God pressed me to stop wishing I was somewhere else and start appreciating where I was. It was life changing and soul shifting. But most of all, it was humbling.

Melody

Melody was chosen by Him. She was chosen to lead tent revivals and church services and take care of the rural families in need. She was chosen to feed the poor. She was chosen to reach down and help fellow mothers up out of the pits of hell they live in. Poverty isn’t just a city problem or an international issue. We have children in our own counties starving and going without the most basic needs that you and I take for granted every single day.

Matthew 14:13-21 New International Version (NIV)

Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand

1When Jesus heard what had happened, he withdrew by boat privately to a solitary place. Hearing of this, the crowds followed him on foot from the towns. 14 When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick.

1As evening approached, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food.”

1Jesus replied, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.”

17 “We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish,” they answered.

18 “Bring them here to me,” he said. 19 And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. 20 They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. 21 The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.

This is her story.


“The original church was built in the 30’s or so…they started having church in the school in 1907”

Where do you get your ideas?
Everything we do in ministry has been lead by the Lord.

What is your life like?
Busy! My husband & I started pastoring Bowman Old Time Pentecostal Church in July 2018. We had no intentions on having a food pantry, however in Aug{ust} the Lord started sending us food. God is so amazing like that! The pantry is a lot of work. We usually go pick up food for that once a week. Our church is older & is in need of repairs so we do work on the building in free time. I also home-school our 15 year old & 10 year old. And in Feb{ruary} 2018 God blessed us with a beautiful baby girl!

What is the first thing that made you cry?
I get emotional quit a bit. This isn’t just ministry, we get to be a part of peoples lives. God has opened doors and our church has a community free food pantry, its been a blessing for many. My most emotional memory so far has been of a young boy, probably around 10 years old, he came to pantry with his mom. At the time we had toilet paper to give away in the pantry. The sight of this little boy running around and so excited about getting toilet paper brought me to tears. This is in our communities, families going without basic necessities. I know without a doubt our mission is right in our own community.

What was the best money you ever spent?
Giving a man outside the Ozark Walmart, playing the violin, my last $10 & telling him Jesus loves him. I knew in my heart the Holy Ghost was leading me and the peace I felt was amazing!

When did you become a Christian?
2012: My husband describes it as a Cornelius experience, meaning everybody in our house gave their hearts to Jesus!

What is your favorite childhood church memory?
I didn’t grow up in church. We only went to church on holidays. So when I gave my heart to Jesus I meant it. And as I grew in my walk with Him I believed everything He wrote to me in the bible. I guess you might say I hadn’t been “churched” so when I read that Jesus could heal my body, I believed it! I have been physically healed 3 times! Wow, if we would tell the world of everything Jesus can do for them there wouldn’t be enough room in all the churches!

If you had to do something differently as a child or teenager, what would you do?
I have thought about this a lot. And it might of made my life easier, but I have worked through these things. God has forgiven me of the mistakes and healed my heart. I’m not proud of who I was but make no mistake I’m proud & love my Jesus!

How do you handle the pressure from non-Christian media?
It’s real easy to get sucked into battles and arguments with non-believers. However we learned in ministry its better to pray and let the Lord fight battles.

A baby named Galilee.

What’s your family life like?
My husband & I have been married for 16 years in April! I have a beautiful Godly 24 year old daughter who is the mommy to my 2 precious grand babies and gained a son when she married a God fearing young man. My 15 year old son is a talented banjo player and was asked to join a gospel band last month. I have a 10 year old daughter that is beautiful, kind, and looking forward to riding rides at Silver Dollar City. And our new addition was a surprise from God. I was 43 and pregnant with her…. I tell everybody , God has a plan , He just lets us be a part of it!



Tell us one thing you want people to know about you. Jesus! There is a song out by Casting Crowns “Only Jesus” (my husband had it as his ring tone so i know it well) It says I don’t care if they remember me, only Jesus….That’s what it’s all about. Only Jesus can heal you physically and emotionally. Only Jesus can cure the addictions, only Jesus ..He is what we need!
#livelove

I’m always humbled and filled with Thanksgiving when the Lord puts new families in front of our own. These families often teach me a lesson that the Lord was waiting for me to learn in order to progress His Kingdom. Sometimes they are swift and hard, and sometimes they are gentle and slow. Our seasons will change but your love for God’s people should grow.

The Disappointment We Feel

Proverbs 23:17-18 “Let not your heart envy sinners, but continue in the fear of the Lord all the day. Surely there is a future, and your hope will not be cut off.”

I’ve needed God more in the last few days than I have in a long time. It’s always amazing to me how the loss of something can evoke such a passionate and yet depressing response to life as we know it in general.

I’ve always handled death fairly well. And I’ve had instances in my life where I had to re-home a beloved pet. Certain people in my life have never understood why or how I could love animals so much, but I just always have. I’ve felt every loss but also felt each loss differently. I’ve made decisions that were hard and decisions that sucked. Life tends to teach us lessons in each circumstance we encounter. What are you rambling about Tiffany?

A lot actually. It’s here, where I guess it is all interconnected.

God gives us gifts on earth to heal us. They are sometimes in the form of animals. I lost my dog this week. He wasn’t just any dog, he was the dog who picked me. He chose me. We were both the student and the teacher together. We originally went to just “look” for a puppy that was suitable for my daughter, my husband and I, alone through a shelter full of pit bulls. In the corner kennel, was a small, long-legged black and white “mix” of a puppy. There was something different about him. He was calm in the mix of erratic and loud pit bulls.

We left the shelter touched by his demeanor. And later that day, my daughter was taken to meet him, my husband and I both secretly hoped she picked him. You see, she had saved her money for a puppy. She also fell in love with our long-legged guy. We kept his shelter name, Cole.

What we didn’t know is that Cole chose everyone in our family in a different manner. He built specific and unique relationships with each member of our household. Even our hateful & tiny chihuahua. Cole worked tediously and tirelessly to win over every heart in our home.

Cole was my redemption. Every mistake I ever made loving humans and animals was redeemed through him. He was even a “hand-holder”. Sometimes he would sit with me and simply want to just hold hands. His giant paw would curl around my hand and he would give me his quiet and content filled “love stare”.

Cole felt everything. He felt everyone. He was a true gift to our family from God. Because Cole showed us who God is. I know it seems silly, or some say, “Oh it’s just a dog.” Maybe some are just dogs or just animals. But there are some…some of them are special. They are sent with a purpose. They ask for nothing and they give us everything. Cole was everything love is supposed to be. They sew us back together, forgive us our sins, and love us unconditionally, they are God’s spirit.

Cole had been abandoned under a deteriorating building and put in a kennel. Cole was the last of his litter to be “chosen”, and I have no doubt that is because he was waiting on his family. We were his family in every single sense of the word. He taught us each a different lesson.

I wouldn’t be a very good Christian if I didn’t divulge my walk with God honestly.

While I may be mad at my heavenly Father and I may not understand, I will forever be grateful that he sent Cole to be with our family. And when He called Cole home, I have no doubt that Cole turned one last time to see his mamma lying in the road simply wanting to “hold his hand” one last time.

Testimony Tuesday with Be Blessed’s Cami Jenkins

I love an awesome testimony. As women of God it is so important for us to be able to see another’s walk with God in order to help us develop our
own walk with Him. One of the biggest struggles a new Christian woman can have is knowing who to walk alongside. I can tell you that my own
potential to become closer to Him can be foggy with my own human sin encounters and one of the biggest things I have learned to do is to walk with the wise women in my immediate circle.

1 Peter 3:15 says:
“But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,”

When I reached out to Cami, I was so excited when she agreed to do this


project with me. Her influence is strong and her faith is beautiful. I hope you enjoy getting to know her like I have.

It’s always so neat to meet Christians in the marketplace and learn their story. How did you become a Christian? “I was raised in a Christian home so I’ve always known about Jesus. I remember following him from a VERY young age. “

When were you baptized and what was that experience like for you? “I was in 5th grade and I knew if you followed Jesus then God tells you to be baptized. Our little church didn’t have a baptismal but finally put one in and I remember having to wait on them to do a baptism service. I was overly anxious to do what God wanted me to do. It was such a relief to me when I finally could do it!”

Tell us about your family. “I grew up in a home with three girls. My parents are about to celebrate 50 years of marriage later this year 🙂 I will be celebrating 20 years of marriage this summer. We have 3 sons, which is a crazy house but SO MUCH FUN.”

What has life as a Christian been like for you? “Generally uneventful in good ways. My testimony is somewhat different from many people I know. I can tell you from experience that following Jesus keeps you out of trouble and really does lead to peace. But it wasn’t until my 30’s that I really grabbed onto my faith with both hands and started really asking God to lead me for His purposes instead of my own. And He’s been crazy faithful in answering those prayers.”

Have you ever been on a mission? If so, where? What was it like? “I went on a few mission trips in high school to places like Colorado, to work with kids. And then early in my married life my husband and I went to
Mexico on a mission. We held church services and provided limited health care. The main thing is that in those types of mission where you see
how much poverty there is in other parts of the world, you personally learn a lesson of gratitude. I hope we brought hope to the people but I ultimately was the most ministered to.”

How do you see Him in your daily life? “I work for a secular company
that somehow has me giving biblical messages to the general public. I don’t for one second take that for granted or think that I had anything to do with making that happen so I am in an interesting place of being forced
to rely on God to sustain me, my messages and my job. I ask for guidance and wisdom constantly throughout the day.”

What is your prayer life like? “Constant. Without communion with God I know I will fall flat on my face in my “ministry.”

 How do you start your day? “Most days I try to read at least one verse to set the tone of my thoughts before I get out of bed. Then I have a marathon of getting 3 kids ready and to school before my focus comes back to my own day. Then as I get ready, I turn on the Daily Audio Bible App that reads through selections of Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs to get through the Bible in a year. It completely sets my thoughts for my work day.”

What is your favorite thing about your business? “That it marries my passions of tv/film/speaking with Jesus. It’s a dream.”

If you could travel to any place in the world where would that be? “I’ve been able to go to a lot of places and my favorite views are in Santorini Greece so that’s back at the top of my list of where I want to go. On that same trip I got to go to Mars Hill which just felt like I was standing on Holy ground listening to the sermon from the Bible that was preached there!”

Do you find it difficult to follow through sometimes when the Lord prompts you in public? “I used to. But He has risen up a “Holy Boldness” in me and as my job is now to talk about God in public it’s pretty freeing. People already know where I stand so that part of the fear is *mostly* not an issue.”


What is the best piece of advice you can give to a new Christian woman or girl? “To pray for wisdom and boldness, and to have them together. And keep eternity in your heart at all times so you don’t get caught up in the things that don’t matter in the end.”

What is your favorite story in the Bible? “Queen Esther. She was brave and stepped into her purpose.”

Where can people find you? “If you want to see any of my tv segments, you can google Ozarks First Cami Jenkins. Or go to Ozarks First and choose “Ozarks Fox AM” from the menu and then I am found on both the link “Be Blessed” and the link “Cami Jenkins.” And for inquiries to have me speak at an event or church, you can email me.

What is something you want others to know? “God puts dreams in our hearts but sometimes waits until we lay down our plan for those dreams. When we sacrifice our own agenda for those dreams then He can actually use them for his glory and it is SO fulfilling!!!”


You can find Cami on Facebook and on Instagram.
