A New Direction

Let Your Vision Be Your Guide

I would like to apologize to all of you as I haven’t written in a few weeks, and I know that. I’m not going to make excuses and tell you something that I know is not true, as that is not within my principles and my integrity.

What I will tell you is that I’ve been thinking of the next steps. 

Within the last month, God has shown me a new direction into where I should take True Beauty Online and its vision. Many times, if you truly listen to God’s Word and His voice, He will show you remarkable visions and you just have to listen. You just have to open your ears and be open and obedient and walk through that door that He has opened for you, without any fear…or regrets. 

Here’s what I’m talking about.

True Beauty Online started in 2012 as my way to reach out into the world and offer my words of encouragement for those who need to hear them.

They were to be a source of inspiration and hope.

Not only that, but it was a way for me to get through to my oldest daughter and make her realize that her inner beauty and her self-worth is what truly matters in this world.

Some of my followers since the beginning would have known that I too, have gone through my own share of low self-esteem and lack of confidence for many years.

In 2012, when God showed me the vision of True Beauty Online, it was the same year that I truly began to realize my self-worth and how strong and powerful my inner beauty is. It was the same year, that I saw my oldest daughter leading the same life that I was leading before God truly demonstrated my worth.

I call it my past life.

I am no longer that super shy individual, who thought she was completely worthless and didn’t have a thing to offer the world before her.

I have grown. I have realized that my past struggles became my passion.

My struggles became my ministry.

True Beauty Online became this powerful ministry that God has shown me and opened the doors to.

2012 was a year for significant and magnificent change.

I’ve had various writers that have stayed with the TBO vision, and I have had writers that have gone and moved forward with another direction, separate from TBO.

During this time, God has shown me that I, along with His divine partnership have created a certain vision for this magazine, therefore we must protect it and if there are others along our path who are only a part of it for an instant, then we must honor that and trust that it’s for a reason.

And for this, the time came where I became the only writer.

Moving forward, allow me to share the new vision that God has set forth.

It’s time. 

For those of you reading this, know this. If you are going through a certain struggle in your life, that you can’t seem to get past, no matter how hard you try, don’t worry.

God is with you. He will show you the way.

Just trust Him and believe that this is not the end. He has taken my family and I out of so many dark places and with His guidance, we have seen the light, and together, we’ve walked towards it with a strong and unshakable faith.

If I can break those chains that were holding me captive for so many years of my life, then so can you. 

I am looking for those women, and men, who have struggled and now they know they are loved.

They are successful.

Amongst their struggles and finding themselves in so many dark places, they have found their way, and they have found their passion to help others.

If this is you, let me interview you.

Let me get to know your story. It’s powerful. It’s unique. Others need to know about it. Whether you have had cancer and are now living free and happy, or whether you’ve been bullied and violated just as I have in the past, but now you have found a purpose for your story, let me help you share it with the world. 

There are so many people in this world who, as I’m writing this, are struck.

They feel defeated.

They feel worthless.

They feel unwanted.

Allow your story to change their lives.

Perhaps your story will even save lives. You never know the incredible impact your story can have on others…even if you don’t know them.

Hearts can change, souls can become stronger and more glorious and the world will be a better place. 

So, partner with me and let’s change the world with our stories.

Let’s share them so that whomever may read them will feel blessed and they will know that their struggle is only a temporary thing in a world of prosperity.

Our stories are part of our lives and they are part of a chapter of a book that is not completely written. We have the power and the strength within us to embrace them for all their worth while helping others along the way. 

With this, I ask you… are you someone that has a thirst for helping others utilizing your story and your journey? Are you now using it for the greater good of this world? Let’s connect and believe in the power of our story in order to help others who are struggling with similar issues.

We owe it to God and we owe it to ourselves.
