Let's Finish 2017 Strong!!!

Can you believe we only have 43 days left until 2018? It was just March! Wow! As the holidays approach, it is very easy to start winding down. You know...letting go of your morning workout regimen. Slacking on finishing that book. Snoozing through your early morning prayer time. Adding more cheat days to your diet plan. Well, let me tell you that now is not the time to slow down! You have to end this year strong!
Why lose your momentum only to have to fight to get it back in a couple of months? Keep the pace! Maybe there wouldn't be a need for new year resolutions if we would stay committed to what we started in the previous year. People who make working out a part of their lifestyle and stay committed to it don't need a "healthy living" resolution. Why? Because they never stopped! If you see things through, you won't need a resolution either.

Ecclesiastes 7:8 says,"“The end of a matter is better than its beginning, and patience is better than pride." I truly believe that how we finish a year determines how we will start the next, not the other way around. I know it's easy to give in to the temptation to relax and slack off but you can do it! Hang in there! You might have to sacrifice now but the payoff will be amazing. When others are feeling disappointed because they quit, you will be basking in the glory of your accomplishment! 

I know, I know...I messed up your plans to be mediocre but I really want to spare you the feelings of guilt and resentment. You can enjoy your holiday and still keep your committment. I know you think that no one will know that you quit, but you will know and that's more than enough reason to follow through. In the words of Marie Forleo, "Success doesn’t come from what you do occasionally, it comes from what you do consistently." Make a commitment to consistency because your success depends on it!!!

Happy Holidays! =)

Daughters of Destiny Spiritual Mentorship Academy UPDATE!!!

Hey!!! The first cohort of the Daughters of Destiny (DOD) Spiritual Mentorship Academy is just about to end (sigh!) and it has been an AH-MAZING experience for me and the participants! The DOD Spiritual Mentorship Academy is a 7 week program for women who feel stuck or stagnant spiritually and need a push! This program is facilitated by yours truly, Elder Ghia Kelly! Not only am I the Founder of The Gift of Truth Inc., but I am a woman who is committed to empowering other women and helping them walk bodly in their God-given purpose. This 7 week academy has a focus on TRUTH, TRANSPARENCY, and TRANSFORMATION and includes weekly group sessions, individual spiritual coaching, and spiritual reflection activities and exercises.

Don't believe it's been life changing? Just check out some of the testimonies from the women of Cohort 1...

 "I am feeling unstoppable! After the [mentorship] session on Sunday, I felt empowered! I wrote quotes from the session on a few mirrors in my house so that my girls can read them too."
 -J. Harrell (Mentorship Academy Participant), 
 Miami, Florida 

 "I am too feeling empowered after Sunday's [mentorship] session! So much so that my week is off to a great start. I remain excited and invested in this entire process." 
-K. Patterson (Mentorship Academy Participant), 
Tallahassee, Florida

"Being apart of the Daughters of Destiny Academy has taught me so many things. I’m so grateful for placing you in my life Ghia C. Kelly."
-C. Poole (Mentorship Academy Participant), 
Tallahassee, Florida

 "I think I'm moving into my greatness and beginning to not only like my uniqueness, but to enjoy it as well. And I like being confronted with the unforgiveness issue because it's something I have to deal with and not let things get built up." 
-J. Williams (Mentorship Academy Participant),
Tallahassee, Florida

While I am sad that the 1st cohort is ending, I am SUPER excited to pour into a new group of women! Cohort 2 will start in February 2018 and registration will officially open in January. I hope to have you join in on the awesomeness and invest in your spiritual future. Feel free to share this information with any other woman who might benefit from this opportunity. Remember, there are only 7 slots available!!! Please email me HERE if you have any questions 😊
