Endometriosis Advocate

 

 

March is Endometriosis Awareness Month. Each year millions of women and girls are impacted by this debilitating disease.  Over 176 million women are fighting a silent war that is upending their lives. It crosses ethnicity/race, age and socio-economic levels.  Endometriosis is hard to detect and often misdiagnosed.

Listen to our interview as she shares insights and strategies to effectively deal with Endometriosis. In the U.S. on average, it takes 10 years from symptom onset to receive an accurate diagnosis of endometriosis.

Some of the top symptoms include:

  1. Severe bleeding during your period (like hemorrhaging)
  2. Lower back and abdominal pain
  3. Vomiting, nausea, and headaches
  4. Prevents you from getting out of bed or doing daily activities

It hits women in the prime of their reproductive lives and impacts women and girls from age 12 to age 60. The symptoms mimic other conditions.

Michelle N. Johnson turned the pain she endured from this disease into a purpose to educate others.

As a Licensed Massage Therapist, and Wellness Educator for over 10 years, Michelle N. Johnson fights fiercely to educate, enlighten and empower individuals to become proactive participants in their health and wellness management.

She brings awareness every March to the plight of those with Endometriosis through her annual Fighting Fiercely © educational campaign and expo.  She is a member of the Endometriosis Association, and author of the Endometriosis resource guide: Fighting Fiercely: Unveiling the Unknown about Endometriosis in June of 2015. She states, “I give women a roadmap for what the next steps should be after diagnosis. I share in-depth research on treatment options and make recommendations for specialists.”

Freedom of Leadership

5-Actions to Help You Lead Yourself

JMT_headshot.jpg

Tracy Washington

Executive Leadership Advisor

We are discussing how to be a leader of yourself, on the job, in your home and the marketplace. It is difficult to lead others if you do not know how to direct yourself. Jesus Christ is our perfect example a true servant-leader who governed himself with restraint and excellence. Our guest Tracy Washington is one of the nation’s leading trainers on Relationships, Human Behavior and Leadership.  She states, “Leadership is an influence. Our position is to become someone that someone else wants to follow.”

Tracy works with mid to senior level managers to help them improve relationships with teams, upper management, and customers so that they establish trust and respect that create a culture of profitability and success for themselves and their organizations.  She also runs a coaching program entitled “Executive RoundTable for Women in Leadership” to help women leaders elevate their leadership style.

Tracy is passionate about helping individuals and corporate clients profit by experiencing better professional and personal relationships.  Ms. Washington helps women find their true passions in order to reach their full potential. She states, “A woman that can make things happen understands they have power. Some feel like an imposter, but the feeling never goes away. We must walk with it, learn how to manage it and walk in confidence. “

Her key points of learning how to lead yourself are below:

1.        Self-care is first. You can’t get anything done from a deficit. As women, we give of ourselves without giving back to ourselves. Take care of yourself so you can properly care for others.

2.        Know who you are.  Do a personal assessment so you understand your unique qualities and identity in Christ. Understand that you are more than the roles you play. Take the time to figure out who you are.

3.        Inventory the relationships around you. Evaluate everyone in your life. Are you spending time with people who don’t add value to you? Are they pouring into you are taking from you?

4.        Raise your level of success. Look at the things that you don’t have to increase your worth. Invest in classes, coaching and read to help you get to your next level of success. Look at your finances and be a good steward.

5.        Don’t compare yourself to others. Get a mirror and look at your reflection. Appreciate who you are and where you are at this moment.

Part 1 - Growth under Duress

Deneen L. Garrett, Manager AT&T Universe

Stress is apart of our lives in one form or another. Romans 8:28 states, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”(NIV)

However, when the stress takes a toll on your health and spiritual well-being it is time to make a change. Ms. Deneen L. Garrett, a high performing manager, mother and community volunteer learned to make life adjustments to off-set health issues caused by stress. Deneen moved her family back to Detroit, from Las Vegas to lessen the stress and surround herself with a support system.  

Listen to my interview as Deneen shares her story what she practices to gain inner peace and impart it to her team and family.

Deneen’s tips include:

·         Praying the word of God and reading scriptures daily

·         Changing her diet and getting back to daily exercise

·         Self-reflection and quiet time in her car before work

·         Prioritizing her workload – cutting down the daily “To-Do” List

·         Making time for community service and family

·         Raising an independent child – She teaches her son do things for himself

Ms. Garrett’s purpose is to help others and make their lives better. Every day she seeks to make a difference in someone’s life.

Love Your Enemies By Angeline Lawrence

Love Your Enemies

by: Angeline Lawrence, Host


Being on the receiving end of taunts and bullying can be detrimental to our physical, mental and spiritual well-being.  As Christians, many of us were not built to give great comebacks when insulted.  Christ taught his disciples to love everyone, especially their enemies because he held them to a higher standard of righteousness. 

Matthew 5:44 states, “But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,” (NIV) Christ taught them that true faith in God was more than the observance of laws and ordinances.  Christ emphasized the importance of displaying the same characteristics of compassion, equity and virtue as the Creator.  The ability to pray for individuals who work against us embodies great strength and righteousness.  Our Creator bestows His love and blessings upon everyone, even individuals that do not obey His Word.  We must learn to love the people that hate us. 

In honor of one of the greatest civil rights leaders in the history of America, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stated, “Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.”

Rejecting Disruptive People

Rejecting Disruptive People

by: Angeline Lawrence, Host
Walking with God can be a lonely path at times. I know God will never leave us, but having a brother/sister in the faith we can relate to is priceless.  Occasionally, we will connect to other believers that seem to be our friends, but in reality they are more like “Frenemies” who seek to gossip about us. 

Today, I want to talk about rejecting individuals that are self-serving trouble makers.  We can all identify with the “busy body,” who will chase the sincere believers away because of the confusion they cause. 

II Thessalonians 3:6 states, “In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we command you, brothers and sisters, to keep away from every believer who is idle and disruptive and does not live according to the teaching you received from us.” (NIV) Oftentimes, letting go of close relationships can be difficult. Especially when it is a person that you consider to be a friend. However, it is important to stay clear of individuals who keep up confusion. They are not about working on our Father’s business because they are prying in the business of others.

How Deep Is Your Love?

How deep is Your Love?

By: Angeline Lawrence

The love that Christ has for us is immeasurable. However, we must show Him the depth of our love through the sacrifices we make in our lives. Matthew 10:38, states, “And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.” (KJV)  All of Christ’s followers had to prove they could love him more than anything, including money, possessions and ultimately family. We must be willing to lose our current lifestyle, and sometimes friends and family to truly walk with Christ.  Listen in as I talk about loving Christ above all things in our lives. We must stay focused by eliminating distractions that will side track us from following Christ.

Thank you again for listening. If you are seeking ways to Hear God Speak into your life, visit www.angelinelawrence1.instapage.com to obtain our free eBook, "How to Hear God Speak."  I provide 5 steps to position yourself to hear the voice of God in your spirit. 

Prayer and Professionalism - The Praying Mindset by Angeline Lawrence

August 29, 2014

As a teenager in church, I remember hearing the Deacon call, "Prayer Time" as we sat in the basement socializing before service. 

We knew it was time to wrap-up our conversations and get upstairs to seek God. As a adult in the marketplace, I've learned that prayer time occurs throughout the day.  I have to seek God in everything that I do, because God's timing is crucial to being successful.

Today, I am discussing the "Praying Mindset," based on the scriptures in Ephesian 6:18 and Psams 141:2. As Christians in the marketplace prayer is a communication tool that must be used all day every day.  As entrepreneurs and professionals, God can use us to impact our environments and help other.
