“Yola any man would be blessed to have you”

This usually comes from people who know “Yola Marj” and not Yola herself. You never saw me mad or hungry.

Outside of the preacher, intercessor, & great things I do, I am also a person. I want to be someone’s wife, not just a trophy.
Let’s not qualify powerful women of God for wifehood because of their attributes + gifts.

Women deserved to be loved for who they are outside of that. You like what you see on social media and the image they display but what about her as a woman? Do you know about her character?
I’d like a man who says, “wow, she’s so passionate about serving people. She’s Christ like in her serving”

If your awe of me doesn’t remind you of Christ, it’s just an infatuation, not a genuine pursuit.

Know the difference.

Cos it’s possible to be infatuated by just anybody
If you’re more attracted to a woman’s resume rather than her, HERself, it ain’t gon last.

Because what happens when you see her outside of what you only assessed from what she chooses to display.

Take time to get to know women for who they are.
“You’re so beautiful”

Oh I am? Keep that same energy when my wig comes off at night.

Didn’t see that coming huh?

Be blessed now.😉
I’m not going to be out here wanting to talk about ministry on our honeymoon bro.

I love Jesus but he even he knows that intimacy stems deeper than talks about ministry & preaching.

Let’s talk about life. You like sports? What’s your favorite team? What do you like to eat?
That’s why so many Christian relationships nowadays are SUPER performative.

People truly do too much and let ministry, accomplishments, and titles define them because that’s their only source of significance.

You are someone else OUTSIDE of your function.

Shoutout to @MauriceChatman_ and @NaomiLoren_

As Naomi best friend, I’ve witnessed them behind closed doors, she’s private but that man truly is a MAN ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND OFF SOCIAL MEDIA. I’ve seen them in several cases and this man truly honors, loves, and covers Naomi frfr.
It’s not even how he treats Naomi, it’s how he treats the people Naomi loves too. Naomi + Maurice have such a unique relationship and they truly get dirty and BUILD together.

This isn’t a facade. Christ is truly center in their relationship and he’s not phased by her influence
Thank y’all for being my indirect teachers 🤣🥰 @NaomiLoren_

if you’re called to preach + lead please PLEASE be rooted in JESUS. I cannot stress this ENOUGH. not the stage or mic or people. do it for JESUS! ministry is full of imperfect people that need to focus on the only perfect God. STUDY, LABOR, ETC DO IT ALL FOR JESUS PLEASE!
I have stories for days of being mistreated. I’ve had people tell me I’m gonna burn out early. I’ve had LEADERS reject me and hurt my feelings. People I trusted turned their back on me. I saw people do CRAZY things.

This is NOT for the weak. Do it for Jesus man. Please.
I have crazy stories. My story growing in ministry is very sad. I’ve cried nights I told God to take this away from me. I didn’t wanna do this. I had people confusing me. I had people trying to prostitute me before teaching me. I was depressed for months at a time.
