Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers- Happy Sunday! It’s a fall-ish day here in G-vegas, and I am trying to figure out what to share with you. It’s been awhile and with 15 different drafts of a proposed article in my que, I’m having trouble finding exactly what I want to say. Have…
the switch up.
“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
Back in the DM
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

With Everything Inside…
Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers- “With everything inside…” those were the words of a song I wrote Christmas Day, 2017. It was a random expression of how I felt about the Father. My dad’s friend sat at the piano and I just began to sing, “With everything inside, I will offer you…
“So… I did something brave, I changed my garments.” ©Simone Holloway, 2018

For a long time in my life, I thought I had to live within separate personalities: the intellectual and the creative. It was as if I could not reconcile between my known trait of intelligence and all of my hidden creative gifts. ©Simone Holloway, 2018
here we go again.

” 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
