My Story

You don't inspire others by being perfect. You inspire them by how you deal with your imperfections.


Who Is Loresha?

As I’m listening to “Into You” by Fabulous, I have to warn you…I’m not your “typical Christian”, woman, wife or mom. At least not the ones that church folks think I should be. Yes, “I Luh God”, in the words of my girl Erica Campbell, and I think being a wife, mom and entrepreneur are amazing, but I 

  • Really don’t enjoy cooking that much
  • Am nowhere near perfect and never will be
  • Will never live up to anyone else’s expectations of who I should be
  • Still have a glass of white wine when I’ve had a long day (or just because)
  • Fuss at my children when they get on my last nerves (with an occasionally cuss word here and there but I’m working on that one though)
  • Have no problem skipping Easter Sunday traditions just so hubby & I can take the kids to a water park
  • Am unapologetically me

And I'm still worthy, loved and enough in the eyes of God


 

LIFE AND PEOPLE ALWAYS HAD A WAY OF CONFINING ME TO A BOX…BUT I’M TOO CLAUSTROPHOBIC FOR THAT NOW

 

Between the joyous yet painful journeys of millennial parenting and marriage, I’ve also had to juggle the title of entrepreneur, while attempting to maintain my peace, sanity, a clean house, a hefty savings account, a dinner menu, (insert deep breath here), all the self care tips everybody says I’m supposed to practice, remembering if I paid that bill, attempting to work out (yeah right) and making sure I drink my gallon of water a day…ugh! It’s enough to make me wanna pull my hair out! (I don’t know about you but I need all my edges). Can somebody say throw away the boxes?! My life has never been perfect and it never will be. (Trust me, I’m fine with that). Besides, my children, the people around me and I, are going to benefit more from me being whole and happy, then society’s definition of perfection anyway.  

YES...

 

I became a mother at the age of 16. 

My son was diagnosed with autism at the age of 5.

I was in an abusive relationship and fell into a deep depression.

I’ve dealt with the stress of having the dreadful title of “stepmom.”

My marriage has felt the effects of infidelity.

I wore the title of “Christian” but my walk looked nothing like one.

BUT GUESS WHAT?

I also graduated high school on time, became a nurse and successful childcare business owner

Worked with my son until he was in all regular education classes with a cumulative GPA of 3.0

Overcame depression and that relationship

Became a mother

Rebuilt my marriage, one Bible verse and negative thought at a time

Got out of religion and developed a REALationship with God (yes blog police, I spelled relationship wrong)

 

REAL INTENTIONAL LIVING IS ABOUT TAKING OWNERSHIP. THERE ARE NO EXCUSES WHEN YOU’RE INTENTIONAL. ONLY OPPORTUNITIES.

 

As you see, failing isn’t an option for me or anyone I’m assigned to. That’s why I’m determined to help parents get through their journey and not stuck in it. But be warned…if you do life with me, I will challenge you. i will make you uncomfortable. I will hold you accountable. But I’ll also love you to life so you can do the same for your children.

So remember growth doesn’t happen in your comfort zone and transformations don’t happen overnight. Keep pushing!
