Chayil is a beautiful Hebrew word that translates to strength, courage, and virtue, especially in the face of adversity, borne of closeness to and dependence on our Heavenly Father. It's a battle cry - A reminder of WHO and WHOSE we are, when the fight in front of us seems too big. Because most of the time, it is. And we should never be ashamed to admit we can't truly overcome without Him.

My story, found throughout the pages of this blog, is one of redemption, forgiveness, and our Father's incomprehensible, incredible love. My story is my own, but chances are, if you're reading this now, it's yours too... Or you want it to be. And it can! I created She is Chayil not only for myself, but in hopes of using my storms to uplift and encourage others who might be going through similar things. If I can do one thing for you, let it be to assure you that whatever Goliath you're facing will not defeat you.

Expect difficulties. Expect attacks. Expect setbacks. But most importantly, expect victory and freedom. It will feel impossible at times, but that's why He made His daughters warriors.

That's why He made us women of chayil .

Reckless Love

Don’t feel sorry for us…Stand ringside with us. Pray us through the valleys. Rejoice with us on the mountaintops. And come to find out for yourself that faith, hope, and love truly cure all.

I Surrender All

The sweet irony of surrender is that the more we commit to walking as Christ did and the more we submit to letting Father God accomplish His plans through our lives, the more outrageously unshackled we become.

If My People…

While our culture is screaming that the most pointless thing we could do right now is to pray…PRAY. And then stand up and do something – What He tells us to.

The Greatest Lie

The greatest lie that the devil ever pulled off is not only convincing the world he doesn’t exist, but that his attributes are our Father’s.
