“I realized I don’t want to be a costume of myself.” - Sherrell Dorsey

“It doesn't have to be that you have to make this massive pivot or do this entire 360 or ditch everything you've built. Sometimes it's just about, with what I have, how can I be more intentional?” - Jessica Hurley

“Reinvention is important. We do not have to stay in the same space. But grace is still required for that process. So I hope you give yourself some grace.” - Sherrell Dorsey

I loved this last episode!! I’m sure there are many people listening who struggled with having a relationship with God, or don’t know where to start or think they have to be perfect to come to him.. but really God wants us in all our mess! Trust! I’ve been there growing up in church it’s a struggle! but having God in my life is better then going without him I’ve tried it my way and it never works! God always give us what we want so we can truly see it wasn’t what we REALLY wanted! As I’m listening I’m like where is my Hillary! Or am I her? Lol Having a sister in Christ to go to things with or discuss is probably the most encouraging thing to have! But at times God will have us in seasons as he did David in the Bible where he encouraged himself to get through! Keep going up J! 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾

Absolutely loved this episode! My takeaway from this episode basically confirms what I already knew to be true. We only have one person to blame for where we are- ourselves! Changing your life requires you to take personal accountability. Period. I appreciate you giving it to us straight, Jessica!
