When purposeful women set their eyes on a task and come together in agreement, there is nothing that is impossible to them. Women are extremely resourceful and are the center of creativity. Don’t think so? Find any mom who has a child who won’t stop crying in the middle of the store and watch the tricks she so effortlessly pull out of her sleeve!
When my good good girlfriends came to me individually to say “I feel like there is something more that I need to be doing. I want to share my gifts and talents with the world” my soul said YES!!! I immediately saw the thread between passion, purpose, creativity, and encouragement that was being sewn between our lives. So after a few texts and a good long three-way phone call we decided to launch this blog as a place to share ourselves with you. We want this to be a place where we are free to share as we grow, conquer and even fall as we push to pursue our individual and collective purposes. We each have a unique voice and gift and we’re so excited to invite you into our girlfriend circle. So let me introduce you to my bestest friends!
Amber – I am the crafty one out of the group. Call me Martisha Stewart if you will. Ever since I was a child, I have been interested in all things creative. If it makes a mess, I’m down. My goal is to put a spin on the “domestic sciences”. Together we will cook, craft, create, and occasionally have a Code 10 Man Down Situation. I am a proud wife and mama of 3. There is never a dull moment in my house. You may see a taste of the shenanigans that occur at the Chateau de Ramsey. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from the School of MacGuyver. Even though I have a 9 to 5, I am technically a housewife, and a proud one. My family are my guinea pigs when it comes to recipes, crafts, products, and designs for 274 Design Studio. They, along with God, are the reason I live Tha Good Life.
Aquilla – Since I was a little girl, I’ve always been very unique. Always curious about life and found myself as the deep thinker and intuitive one out of a group. However, I’ve learned to embrace who and whose I am. Through my dark trials, greatest accomplishments and even times that I like to call “God-Incidences” (what is often called a coincidence), God has taught me Wisdom. I believe that through our flaws, mistakes and past, the Lord is passionate about leading and revealing his love to each and everyone one of us.
It’s been placed on my heart to share my journey with you, including what I’ve learned and what I’m continuing to learn as a mom and wife in hopes to motivate, encourage and lead you to live an abundant, whole and joyful life. Let’s put ourselves first and dive deeply and fully to love, learn and grow in Wisdom. So ladies, lets call ourselves The L.A.W. (Ladies After Wisdom).
Chanelle – I’m the entrepreneur and daredevil of the group. I am extremely passionate about women pursuing purpose and I dare to dream ridiculous dreams. I will be sharing a lot about finding your most authentic self by chasing after your wildest dreams. I see so many women who have talents that they let lie dormant while they allow life to consume them. I want to encourage you to DO by simply BEING YOU. So whether it is a business you’ve wanted to launch, a book you have buried inside or any other thing that is tugging at your heart, I will be sharing what I’m learning along my journey of purpose in hopes that it will pull you out of your slumber and onto your passion path as well.
