Hi there. I'm Jill Allen and this is find your fierce, the show designed for women to discover your fierce, unlock and unstoppable mindset. Build unbreakable courage and completely transform how you show up every single day. Each week I will bring ideas, methods and strategies that will inspire you to step into your greatness and live life on purpose. Let's be fit, fierce and unstoppable.

(00:36): Hey there, gang. Welcome to find your feet. Love that you are with us once again, or maybe it's your first time joining us. We welcome you either way. We are just glad that you are here today. And this one has been a long time coming and I can't believe it is here. I'm pretty excited. Many of you know that I have been writing a book and it is getting ready to release. And I kinda want to dive into that a little bit here today and kind of share with you why I started diving in it is called set free a woman's guide to clarity, freedom, and God's endless love. And it was placed on my heart to share my story years ago, but like many of us, our dreams and the visions we have, or the call on our life gets ignored and it gets put on the back burner and you know, I get it, we get it.

(01:27): We get caught up in the chaos and somewhere we end up going through the motions, trying to survive stressed to the max and not showing up as who we have been created and designed to be. But last year was when I planted my feet firmly in the ground. And I said, yes. I said yes to my testimony. I said, yes, to sharing that testimony. I said yes to the Lord. And I started diving in and there was something about 2020 that led me to so much clarity, you know, personal growth and breakthrough. And, and I am one that has spent the majority of my life focusing on always moving forward, always pushing through, always striving, showing up no matter what, not just for myself, but also when it came to helping my clients do that exact same thing as well. But the masks were taken off the mask of perfection.

(02:17): The mask of, I got to have it all together to make an impact, the mask of doing it all, having it all yet here, I was losing my sanity and peace in that process. So I was done with the masks. So I ripped those off. I took an inward look, did a heart check and I picked up the pen and I've got to say, I got to ask you, have you ever felt like something was missing either within yourself or in your life? Like you just can't seem to put your finger on it, but yet, you know, there's a void somewhere. Like you wake up every day just to go through the motions, you know, deep inside you crave more and you know, this is no way to truly live. And maybe you felt like you're living in the middle of a powerful raging storm.

(03:04): And wherever you go, there's like this dark cloud of rain following your every step. You know, maybe your thoughts have drifted off and you found yourself questioning the meaning of life. Or maybe you thought there has to be more to life than this. You've been trying to find your purpose. And sometimes you even question whether you have one and you're left with this undeniable, unsettling pit in your stomach, and ultimately you just feel lost and alone. You maybe you've asked yourself some questions and you whispered, you know, up above, like, what am I here to do God, you know, who am I supposed to be? Do I have what it takes? Where do I start? Where do I begin? And so far, like this journey called life has led you to feelings of loneliness, maybe sadness, anger, resentment, frustration, bitterness, fearfulness, and anxiety, whatever it is, you name it.

(03:56): I have felt it all too. And I totally get it. And here's the truth. You are not showing up as the woman, you desire to be let alone who God designed and created you to be. And I get it because the world has shaped our vision of how life should be. It has painted this picture, that experiencing crazy chaos, striving for more, you know, and maintain it. A busy life are somehow the perfect depiction of fulfillment and success. Somewhere along the way. We find ourselves chasing things that in the end, ultimately don't matter. We convince ourselves that this is how life works. This is how it is. And in this process, we subconsciously enter that rat race. But all the while, I mean, we're suffering in silence, feeling empty stress to the brim. And before we realize that life just pass us by we forget we have a calling on our lives and this world's vision is so polar opposite from the calling.

(04:50): God has placed on us in Jeremiah 29 11 for I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord plans to prosper you and not to harm you plans to give you hope and a future. Let me tell you if life didn't have us on a speeding, twisting rollercoaster ride, taking us through difficult challenges and up and down the steep mountains, we would never discover who God intended us to be. And I can honestly say that every heartache, every setback, every trial and challenge that I know that I have had had helped me make me the strong, fierce woman I am today. Everything the good, the bad, the ugly it's all helped me mold me for this divine purpose and put me on a path that continually allows me to step into my greatness of my God given purpose. And the same thing goes for you.

(05:40): We need to be able to lean into that. This is all part of a bigger, more intrinsic plan that I know I so wish I could see. I don't know. I'm a type, a personality. Maybe you are too. And we want to be able to see things. We want to see the end result, but the gift hidden within not knowing is to trust the journey. God has us on is one. And that we're all learning to fully trust guys. I was in my closet hiding from my five incredible, awesome wild, crazy kids. And I turned on some worship music to spiritually recharge just to regroup. Now, if you had asked me a few years back, whether or not I would be going to God first with everything, I probably would've just smiled and thought you guys were crazy and maybe you can relate, but I've always been wanting to take control and do it all by myself.

(06:33): You know, looking back, I can even say I thrived on that plan. So taking the time to be still and to listen to what God was telling me, might've been a slight challenge. However, when I slow down just enough to truly listen for my next steps, I've learned that this method is good for my soul. And for those that are all around me, and I really encourage you to try it. He says, be still and know that I am God, I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth, Psalms 46, 10 be still and know that I am God. As I was taking that all in guys, I could hear your God-given story is your name message. Your God given story is your message. And these words were spoken to me and they, it was loud and clear. It was like a mantra.

(07:22): It was a broken record. They kept repeating and they wouldn't go away. Your God given story is your message. And it was like the music softened. Yeah, they were coming out of the loudspeaker on repeat, playing over and over and over again in my heart. And mind your God-given story is your message. Now, here we are. Okay. Just a few short weeks later. And it was typing away is if I was born to do this, even though I was the one that failed my 12th grade state, right? Proficiency test here, I am sharing my story with you. And I want to let you know that your God given story is your message. And this, this book, this book called set free. It's a gift to you guys. I hope it helps to restore your faith with encouragement. So you can turn your struggles into fuel, which inspires you to shine your light ever so brightly and transforms you into the woman.

(08:18): You've always been to be. There's going to be a time when you recall that precious moment, when you took a deep dive into your heart and were willing to say yes to all the blessings and gifts God has given you. And with that, yes, we'll also be the first step on your journey, which is aligned with your purpose. I cannot wait to share my books at free with you. You ever felt like something was missing either within yourself or in your life as if there's this void that you can't define and you can't escape, or maybe even trying to find your purpose. And sometimes you even question again, you have one, I'm going to help answer those questions and share how I discovered the way to show up as the woman you want to be. But also the woman God designed and created you to be, I'm going to share with you some of my darkest struggles, highlights moments that will trace my path to where I am today.

(09:14): I will give you every step I took along the journey that led me to God's unconditional love. So you can take these exact steps to freedom and enjoy his peace too. I pray that you realized that with God, you can overcome anything. I invite you to take a sneak peek of set free and join the set free book club, go to Joe Allen, coaching.com.
