#DepthAndDiscipline™ Lesson 7
And he told them, "You are the ones who justify yourselves in the sight of others, but God knows your heart. For what is highly admired by people is revolting in God's sight. Luke 16:14-18
#Keyword Phrase: ‘Your Heart’
#CHARACTERpreneur™ Attribute: Be courageous .
It is easy to be like the Pharisees in this passage and get caught up in the admiration and validation of people around you - and be driven by what you think others think are the visible signs of success. This perspective puts you on the fast track to destruction because what people think is worthy of praise can be drastically different from what God says is worthy of praise. .
People are often caught up with what "appears" to be the fruit of your life. Here's the thing ... what some people consider "fruit" or "harvest" is neither of these things, but instead an ill-gotten trapping. People cannot tell the difference between fruit, harvest, and materialistic trappings, but God can .
God cares about both your intention and your faithful action. When you first seek him, all other things will be added to you. "All things" includes fruit and a harvest from the peace of heaven (not the torment of hell) that glories Jesus and serves people .
BE COURAGEOUS ENOUGH TO FREE YOURSELF FROM THE OPINIONS OF PEOPLE. Check your heart in every decision you make, action you take, and process/system you create.
Why are you doing this?
Who does this honor?
Who does this serve?
Would Jesus be pleased with my intention?
How is God being glorified in the action/behavior? .
Let your answers guide your action. .
Blessings! ~ Coach TC .

The bible in Romans 8:18 is a reminder that whatever sufferings you might be going through now as a result of your decision to please the Lord in business, nothing can compare to the glory that will be unveiled in you when God is ready to showcase your business.
Let that knowledge be a motivation strong enough to keep you through the trying times. Joseph didn't allow his incarceration to destroy his hope in God.
Don’t worry child of God in business, your glory is assured but you have to stay faithful. Don’t allow these present sufferings rob you of the great glory ahead.
Give You A Chance🌟
Grateful for a New Week🙏🏽😁
Slide for my Pretty Monday Pic😁⬅️
Recently, I spoke with the earthly father in my life who is over 80 years of age.
He was working on a venture and i gently tried to dissuade him from expending too much energy because of his age and the fact that it was not even necessary for him.
His Answer 👇🏽
It is Passion that drives me.
I have a Passion for it.
It’s a Life-long thing.
This is what i have shared with some lately -
What do you see yourself STILL doing at 60,70,80 by God’s grace,
Not because you are forced to,
But because you want to -
That is WHAT you need to START Today and DO 👇🏽
For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
What has God called you to do?
That is the place of your fulfilment and Blessing🙏🏽

Something amazing just happened!! Our logo is here. Designed by the wonderful @charmainemainoo we just love it and can't stop looking at it.
It was after speaking with @jahmella_encourages where she dropped a new revelation and reminded me to share the process. I was literally going to post the logo with a cute caption and be done, but there was nothing cute about its process... Sounds a lot like life at times.
So here's how it began. It was love at 1st sight when I encountered a certain Instagrammer's posts. I said yes to the logo before calculating the costs, long story short, I was left with no logo, disappointed because I spent a lot of money and received nothing.
My Gem (literally she's a gem) recommended @charmainemainoo at this stage my intial idea just didn't appeal to me so I just went with the flow. As the sketches came I saw potential in one design, so we began working on it.
Unfortunately, each design concept I came up with didn't appeal to me. Frustration seeped through and after reminding myself not to be anxious. I gave it to God in prayer (after all He laid the vision in my heart so surely He knows the look required).
After meditating on it, I literally woke up with the epiphany and voila she is here. A miracle wrapped in faith. Having a logo is not simply about using cute pictures and attractive fonts or colours. It conveys a message, a statement. It is powerful. There is a blessing in your story and Zenys Inspirations, showcases that power.
Life doesn't go according to our plans and her cracked lines reveals her brokeness, but she doesn't conceal them. She is pieced together with love and her soul has awoken to emit the light she was created with. She found beauty in her scars and purpose in her pain. Her light sparkles as she remains hopeful. #thejourney
Be encouraged and stay blessed.
⭐️It’s DAY ONE of @justacard INDIE week⭐️
I’m Natasha and I run Grace and Hope Designs which started off as a way of letting my creative side out whilst sharing my love of Jesus.
This week is all about getting to know small businesses and understanding why every purchase - big or small - makes us do a happy dance 💃
Anyway - here are my 10 facts about me: 🍂 I work part time as a Children and Families Minister for a local church but used to be a Primary School Teacher
🍁 I’m married to Simon(who has a very glamorous job working in film and TV) and have 3 children aged between 7 and 1.
🍂 I can never find a picture of just me (any other parents find there’s always a child in them?)
🍁 My favourite season is Autumn
🍂 I can’t stand mushrooms!
🍁 I live in West Yorkshire
🍂 When I was younger I wanted to be an RAF pilot- before I realised I was too short!
🍁 My favourite music is folk music - it always gets me dancing!
🍂 I studied Chemistry at Uni (it was very hard!)
🍁 I love being out walking in the countryside
Now over to you - say hi below and tell me some random facts about you!
Celebrate the magic in your children.
They are here to teach us
as we instruct them,
to live out their purpose
while we are solidified in ours.
What are you children teaching you lately?
Or better yet...are you listening?
I recently heard an Influencer say:
"It's NOT about who you are. It's about the value you offer people." To that I say: Yes and No.
YES, in that you MUST bring value to your audience. Always. That's a given.
But NO, in that it DOES matter WHO you are. To me, anyway.
Because if I’m going to listen and learn from you, and consider doing business with you - I need to know, like and trust you. - If your core values are opposed to mine;
- If what you stand fundamentally challenges what’s important to me; and
- If your attitude and approach is offensive and disrespectful; … you can bring an incredible amount of value to the table - I’ll keep looking for someone I DO resonate with.
Because, WHO you are, impacts and influences HOW you show up when you deliver your valuable content.
Whether you’re speaking on a #podcast, sharing content in a video, or a blog post.
And, it's often the WHO you are and the experience you create that'll differentiate you from the myriad of other people in your industry.
So, WHO you are is just important to me as what you know AND the value you offer.
In fact, it'll determine whether or not I do business with you.
Is this important for you too? Do you need to know, like and trust a person in order to do business with them? Or not?
This man is the real rock star in our family. He works his booty off, cooks, cleans and changes dirty diapers. Ok, that last one is almost never but when I ask him he does it lol.
He's my motivation for working so hard. Yes, I love my team and I love helping mommas remember their worth after having babies but this wouldn't be possible without his support.
Thank you @walkersamson for doing life with me! Xoxo💕
By far one of my favorite, most valuable lessons I learned in grad school came from this best selling Christian author and preacher Max Lucado😊the other author and pastor is John C. Maxwell😊I still have my books from both awwmazing authors😅as I begin mapping out my business plan, had to pull out my books and re-introduce myself to the biblical laws of success😉God’s business plan is totally different than a secular business plan💯. Current mood: RESEARCH-PLAN-EXECUTE-MAINTAIN🧐 #christianbusiness#integrity#success#prosperity#faith#businessowner#purpose
I teach businesses how to grow through the implementation of efficient & effective systems. But that’s not what this clip is about. .
If you remember, a week ago, I shared the testimony about my ability to speak and how I need a microphone to do so during speaking engagements. That’s a fact. Well, I also have to show you evidence of the eternal truth; that when everything around me is failing and when people don’t show up, God does and He provides! That was a huge room but I serve an even bigger God. .
As we prepare for 2019, I need you to get out of your own way and your feelings! People seriously make so many excuses based on what they don’t have that it’s sickening! Without anything added, you currently have enough to do what you’re called to do right now. You don’t need batteries or a microphone to do it! So what is your plan for success?

“Because of the extravagance of those revelations, and so I wouldn’t get a big head, I was given the gift of a handicap to keep me in constant touch with my limitations. Satan’s angel did his best to get me down; what he in fact did was push me to my knees. No danger then of walking around high and mighty! At first I didn’t think of it as a gift, and begged God to remove it. Three times I did that, and then he told me, My grace is enough; it’s all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness. Once I heard that, I was glad to let it happen. I quit focusing on the handicap and began appreciating the gift. It was a case of Christ’s strength moving in on my weakness. Now I take limitations in stride, and with good cheer, these limitations that cut me down to size—abuse, accidents, opposition, bad breaks. I just let Christ take over! And so the weaker I get, the stronger I become.” - 2 Corinthians 12:7-10 MSG
Red lipstick makes me feel sassy!! Any other moms with me?! We have some new followers lately so I wanted to share 5 things about me to see what we have in common!!
1️⃣ I rarely wear makeup! Mascara is my go to if I wear anything at all and lipstick for date nights and special occasions 💄 .
2️⃣ We never thought we’d be a homeschooling family! God lead us to this path and now I’m forever grateful and love the journey!
3️⃣ I love weight lifting and I loathe cardio! Fitness and nutrition has definitely been a journey for me, but I still love chocolate 🍫 and am pretty particular about it!
4️⃣ I’m totally in love with my husband! God has truly blessed our marriage and trusted us with 3 beautiful daughters! (😂 this probably should’ve been #1)
5️⃣ I’m totally Type A and an extrovert!! I love lists, details, organization! I get my energy filled back up when I’m hanging out with friends and doing something FUN!! What about you?? What do we share in common?
Tomorrow isn’t promised.
The next moment isn’t promised.
Call the people you love.
Tell them why and just how much.
The losses we see around us serve as our reminders through the pain.
Don’t squander your time.
And, please: Love. Your. People. .
God bless the family and friends of #KimPorter.
