You are not an imposter!

On today’s episode we discuss the importance of growing in your ability to take thoughts captive! Everyday is a new day to ask God what He is teaching you. Don’t give the enemy satisfaction by giving him time. He likes to twist and destroy all things good and he starts by silencing you, invading your thoughts. Be brave in battle, accept what you already are in Christ.

Topics Discussed:

  1. What is imposter syndrome?
  2.  How does the enemy operate?
  3.  Are you listening to God?

Takeaways + Highlights

  1. Everyday you need to decide to be grateful.
  2. You need to ask God if there are any doors that you may have inadvertently opened.
  3. Putting your armor on daily to avoid the enemies lies.


“In this story of life, we are all extras. What’s the job of an extra? It’s to shine light on the star. Whether you write blogs, devotionals, books-your message has the opportunity to impact readers and fill their hearts with hope so you can spotlight Jesus.” Athena Dean Holtz

Welcome, I'm Athena!

I start each day by tithing the first hour to the Lord in prayer, reading the word, doing word studies of the Text, and asking God how I can live out what I am reading. This time is usually met with meditation on devotionals that are usually written by dead guys like Oswald Chambers, CS Lewis, Charles Spurgeon, AW Tozer, and Andrew Murray.

Right now, I’m reading a daily devotional with a friend called Tozer on the Almighty God for my focus for the day. It's fun to see individually what pulls us in to spur one another on to good deeds!

The Bible is filled with action steps to walk out in practical and intentional ways. This sets my day in motion to walk it out! I hope this is your heart, too.

Consider this a personal invitation to join me in this journey!
