What would our world look like if we made each day count? If we took nothing for granted? Would we say we loved each other more? Would we hug each other a little bit tighter? Would we hold on a little bit longer? ©Simone Holloway, 2020.
“I was no longer living for church politics or for people who did not create me to accept me, I was accepted already. I attended dances, went to mixers, traveled all over the country for conferences, and went on day trips- I was having the time of my life! I became free.”©Simone Holloway, 2019
We can tell a person and say “I forgive you” as many times as we want to but it doesn’t mean a thing until we actually can say that person’s name, go around that person, receive a message from that person and not feel a way. About four weeks ago I went through a whole…
Y’all, I have no idea what this life of no shame will bring but I’m excited. I feel free, like in the depths of my soul. I feel like I can conquer the world. I feel strong and full of life in the inner chambers of my heart. I feel brave. It takes bravery to move into the unknown out of fear into love, out of being guarded to being open, out of holding things into being extremely honest. I am okay with where I am and that is freedom all in itself. I’ve embraced the truth about me and I am unashamed. I’ve embraced my triumphs and my failures, every ounce of my brokenness and the places where I am whole, all of my strengths and all of my weaknesses. I’m okay with every ounce of me and I am enough because I am in Him. I’m literally smiling as I type this article, overjoyed at the process He is doing in my heart. ©Simone Holloway, 2019
You are enough.
You are allowed to be different.
Who you are is just as significant as anyone else.

Even some of you, my friends, I watched you hit a glass ceiling with creativity as your posts began to be more prolonged and your woes more apparent.

It’s the age of the Creative!

“People are fallible, they will fail us. They will disappoint us, we cannot expect people to rock with us forever. Some might say this is a very negative concept, or one shared by a pessimist- but I refuse to engage in this false hope that those around me are incapable of hurting me, in fact it is the people that are closest to you that hurt you the most.” ©Simone Holloway, 2017
” Friends, the tables turned and the Father began to point the light on me and where I was in this faith walk with Him. He began to challenge me! He flashed the light on my hypocrisy- how could I sing of his goodness and not believe he was good? How could I testify of his power and not believe his power is applicable in my life? How could I speak of his impartiality, yet believe that he was being partial in my circumstance? God came for my hypocrisy- he challenged my faux faith. In the end to not believe in myself, is to not believe at all!” ©Simone Holloway, 2017
