Have you ever felt like life is spiraling out of control? Or that you are being pressured to be “perfect” in everything you do. This is especially true if you are in the ministry in some form or fashion. God forbid you should ever be anything BUT perfect, right? It seems like people today are putting unnecessary pressure on themselves to live a life of perfection. Then, when they do not live up to the perfect image, they feel like they have failed. Failed in life, failed in business, failed in marriage – you get the picture.
Well, my guest today was just like you. Carenda Deonne she lived like this for many years as a former pastors wife and entrepreneur. After two failed marriages and business relationships, Carenda stopped pointing the finger outward and pointed inward. She confronted her own imperfections, lack of self-love and trust. Only when she was “Carenda,” was she able to life a full and fruitful life.
Now, she is licensed minister, a contributing writer to “Grace and Glory Magazine,” the founder and organizer of P.H.S. which stands for “Prospering Healthy Souls,” which is a Christian centered group for professional women. Through this group, she helps women in fostering prosperity through wisdom, healing and strategy for both, personal and professional growth.
Carenda Deonne is also the a published author of three books, the latest is titled, “Perfect Patty Messed Up Devotional,” which we will be discussing today. She is a professional speaker and takes her message of “IMPACT” all across the world, as she is determined to be an undeniable voice and calls herself, an “agent of change.”
Help me welcome to the program, Carenda Deonne!
First question, other than that brief information I just shared, can you tell us in your own words, “Who is Carenda Deonne?”
Now, from your bio, I guess it would be safe to say that your life has not always been one of sunshine and roses, right?”
At what point in your life did you realize you had to take care of you?
Why do you identify yourself as a “Change Agent?” What does that mean?
Why do you believe some people are so hesitant to embrace change?
As you go through the process of helping your clients, what is one of the major misconceptions you find that people have concerning change?
I know I’ve talked to some folks that were going through some issues, they felt like, “once I get through this, THEN I’ll do such and such.” Have you found that to be true as well? I mean, why do some people find it so hard to embrace change, especially when they KNOW they must change, until they “go through” whatever it is they are experiencing at that moment?
Just go down into the show notes and click the links right there. Get in touch with Carenda. Invite her out to speak to your group or conference. Get in touch online to access her services…and be sure to order her book, “Perfect Patty Messed Up Devotional,” In fact, as this goes to air, you know Christmas is just around the corner. “Perfect Patty Messed Up Devotional” would make a great gift for someone you know.
