At 22, I was a recent college graduate, married, bought my first home, landed my dream job… I was on a ROLL! But as the movie Forest Gump famously said, “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”
On November 12, 2009, my then husband, and I were traveling back from the panhandle of Florida from a business trip. On November 14, 2009, I was told words that would forever change my life:
My husband was dead.
I was 33 years old and a widow.
Ten months later, my father died of an unexpected diagnosis of pancreatic cancer.
You know, it’s one thing to say blessed be the name of the Lord when everything in our life is going well, but when life changes on us, suddenly, dramatically ----what do we do? Who do we turn to? How do we apply the Word of God to our struggles?
God promises in His Word that He is our Refuge, our Strong tower that we can run to in our time of need. Listen, not only did I survive my first husband’s death, I thrived! I even remarried – look at God! I thrived because of knowing how to apply the Word of God to my life! As a result, I transformed from a weak, fearful, confused, grief stricken wife to a joyful, peaceful, and powerful woman of God!
My dad use to tell my sisters and I, “There are two things that you can’t buy on the shelf, integrity and experience.” He was right! I am battle tested and to quote the song Victory by Yolanda Adams, “I 've fought many, many battles in His name.” Although, I have theological training and have studied the Bible at various seminaries, my experience with Christ and the application of His Word to my life has been my greatest teachers!
God’s Word has been the inspiration of my life, throughout my life. And now it is my mission to give back what He has given to me by inspiring you to be transformed by His Word! My brand, Camille Inspires, is a reflection of who I am as a Christian woman: strong, focused, disciplined, consistent, determined, committed, compassionate, successful, loving, non-judgmental. And as a certified lifestyle coach I use the powerful combination of coaching techniques and the Word of God to guide you to the One who transforms!
I have been teaching and preaching the Word of God, in churches and stages, in the United States and countries around the world, since I was in high school. I know the Word of God. I love the Word of God. I live the Word of God. It is my life! I have spent thousands upon thousands of hours in God’s Word. It is my home and I want it to be yours as well!
Listen, my friend, there is no struggle, no problem, no circumstance that we find ourselves in that His grace can’t help us to overcome and become victorious! The only thing that stands between you and the life that you want is knowing how to apply the Word of God to your life and experience the transformation God promises.
I am my Sister’s Keeper, your sister, along this often challenging journey called life. I have been sent here to serve you, inspire you, to help you get the VICTORY in whatever area of your life you need it!
Love ya lots!
