I spent the last two days in sunny Jacksonville, Florida at the headquarters of @CremeOfNature with these two amazing women who’ve been angels in my life! I adore you Stephanie (@firstandlastpr) and Robin and am so grateful for all you do! I’m often asked about how to find connections or opportunities in business, and I’m learning that many times, the best connections will come to you. Before I began running @MeltonDigital full time, I prayed that God would order my steps in building relationships with brands and clients. My role at Creme Of Nature is the result of a word-of-mouth referral that appeared in my inbox out of the blue. Tonight, my prayer is for anyone wanting to build fruitful partnerships in your business. Submit those desires to Christ and rest in faith knowing that He’ll bring the right people in your life at just the right time! Love y’all!
How do I know God is real? Fresh watermelon juice in the summertime! 🙌 I simply cut a watermelon in half, scoop it out into the blender, blend, and drink! My soul is smiling as I sit here with this ice-cold goodness thinking about what a long, yet productive week it’s been. I am so filled with love! Love for my mentor who I spoke to for an hour this week when I really needed encouragement as a business owner. Love for my family and in-laws who have been overwhelmingly supportive of my journey these past few months. Love for the hubby-to-be who showers me with his encouragement, prayers, time, patience and kindness every day. Love for God for His grace and peace! And love for my Instagram and Facebook followers cause y’all are so sweet and supportive in every way 😊 Let’s be sure to show those around us lots of #LOVE this weekend! Yay!
Happy Thursday loves! I just wanted to take some time on my midday Bible break to remind you that God has amazing things in store for you! “You asked, who is this that questions my wisdom with such ignorance? It is I, and I was talking about things I knew nothing about, things far too wonderful for me.” Job 42:3… I can surely relate to Job in that sometimes I question God about what He’s doing in my life. I run @MeltonDigital with a tiny staff of one and will become a wife in 24 days. (!!!!) I have so many doubts and fears at times! I’m learning that God has answers to my questions and plans for my future that are “far too wonderful” for me to even comprehend! If you’re unsure about something in your life right now, keep praying and hold on to God’s promise for “far too wonderful,” abundant and joyous things to happen for you! Love y’all! P.S. This #SaladJam is courtesy of another surprise lunchtime delivery today from the hubs-to-be! #lovehim #myheart #GodisFARTOOWONDERFUL! #dontyouforgetit!
"Study the word of God. Continually meditate on it day and night… Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do." Joshua 1:8… Soaking up this scripture and putting it into practice today on my "lunch hour" which I’m enjoying right now at 7:32pm. It’s been one of those days where only God’s good word has kept me going! It’s easy to get so busy thinking we can outwork the next man and succeed, but I’ve found that on days like today where the hours fly by, only God can restore me and give me that extra boost of energy to get work done. If I don’t stop for my daily Bible break, I crash and burn! I’m taking a much-needed pause to enjoy quiet time with God and devour this surprise #SaladJam that my hubby-to-be brought me today! #thissaladisGOOD #ImStarving #HOWisitalready7pm??? #IstilleataSaladJameveryday #myhoneyknowsmewell #thankGodforamanwhofeedsme #hashtagoverload #okaybye
Yes, I’m one of those cheesy brides who has a wedding day countdown app! I loved seeing that today we are exactly 40 days from becoming husband and wife! On January 4, 2013 I began a 40-day fast and prayed that God would direct my steps in terms of my career and desire to start a family. (My fast was 40 days of all liquids, including veggie soups, smoothies and juice.) God truly worked on my heart in those 40 days and I felt clearer and closer to Him than I had in a long time. I felt at peace and could sense God moving in my life…. Fast forward one year later, and the week I met my love McArthur, he was in the middle of his own fast at the time. (Look at God!) We highly recommended the biblical discipline of fasting along with the book “Fasting” by Jentezen Franklin. For me, fasting helps eliminate distractions during my prayer and Bible study time, and also reminds me that I am totally dependent on Christ and Christ alone! He is my source who makes all things possible! 🙏
I’ve grown so close to this woman as we count down to my wedding in 51 days! My wedding planner Raven is a true gem and her company, @the_envision_firm has been such a blessing! Raven booked all of my amazing vendors in a month and they each have such a beautiful spirit and passion for what they do! (This includes our venue, caterer, baker, hotel, florist, stationer, photographer, videographer and DJ—and all within my budget. She also went with me today to find my dream dress!) I’m so grateful for Raven and all the sweet souls that God has placed in my life recently. This season has filled me with so much joy and peace! God is good. So, so good! #theenvisionfirm
