Unveiling The Hidden Beauty Of Your Heart

My Workshop Review! God is Good

I held my second workshop on 3rd November 2019. For me, it was an absolute miracle because I sometimes see myself as that shy, introverted little girl who stuttered. How can I lead a group of women through a workshop and get them to understand that there is more to them than they could ever realise.

I did what I could do and allowed God to do the rest. Trust me, I prayed and prayed that each woman would receive something that would challenge them to dust of their complacency and procrastination so they could move forward and be the best that they could be.

God has given all of us something to do. Our gift is never for us but always for someone else. It takes courage to use it for the benefit of humanity because we are always looking at our human limitations and negative experiences. We have to feel the fear and do it anyway. Take that step and believe that we can do what we came here to do and be the blessing to others that God called us to be.

I want to challenge you to take that step because someone is waiting on your gift. Someone needs your bravery and courage. Someone needs to hear your testimony, and someone needs to hear that you overcame and won. Humanity needs your strength and courage to keep going for themselves.

How long will you sit on what God gave you? How long will you allow your self-esteem issues to block you from becoming whom God created you to be? It’s time for a change, its time for you to get started and realise that YES you can do it. Your challenges in life have prepared you for this very moment.

So plan, set your goals, take that step and watch your rewards manifest.

Beaten before I was beaten

Hello My name is LaNette Kincaid and I’m the founder of Women With Gifts and I’m the VOICE for both sexual abuse and domestic violence. God gave me the vision of creating a platform to speak openly about my past but I ran from this vision for along time because the pain was so deep and to help others meant telling my story and this time telling it without shame.

My story isnt really different from any other women in the world. The only difference from my story and the next person is I’m telling my story and most women will die trying to hide their story of abuse. Before I was ever physically abused I abused myself mentally. I was molested at the age of 12 and raped by the age of 19 which you can read about in detail in my upcoming book.

I named this article Beaten Before I Was Beaten because I beat myself up mentally well before my physical and sexual abuse experiences started. As a child I saw my mother beaten by the man that was supposed to love her. It didnt stop there….I saw two of my aunts with bruises and sometimes broken bones from their spouses. After seeing so much domestic violence at such a early age, I equated being loved with being beaten by the person  who loved you. So mentally I was prepared for being BEAT because in my mind I was already beaten down and probably already gripped with low self-esteem.

I stayed in my situation of being abuse because I didn’t know any better. Its a known fact that when you know better you do better. I also stayed in my situation because it was my way of creating the greatest façade known to man.. It was my way of painting a white fence for a house that was run down and delapatated. So basically I stayed in my abusive relationships for those who were watching. For the people that didn’t care about me or my well-being but pretended to just to see the outcome of my downfalls…Yes I stayed for them. I was too ashamed to be that family member who just couldn’t get their life right-AGAIN. Even after I was beat up physically I beat myself again mentally not trying to leave but beating myself up trying to figure out how to make myself stay comfortably and make the other people around me happy.

I’m now the voice of domestic violence and sexual abuse because no little girl ever deserves to live in fear the way I did. Every women is beautiful and doesn’t need the accent of a black eye or bruises to intensify their beauty. No women should every die by the hands of a fists.

In closing I would like to thank Heart of Refuge for accepting me as a person and sharing my story. It is my prayer that my story and my book will save another life.

Lending the Gift of my voice – Guest Contributor to WomenwithGifts.com

  

A couple of weeks ago I was asked to contribute a blog post to women with Gifts. It is a great website which raises awareness of domestic violence and sexual assault.

It also showcases the gifts and talents of many women. It was truly an honour to write for them. God is truly blessing the works of their hands in many ways.

Please take a moment to read my article and also look at the great work they are doing. They are currently doing a drive to purchase coats for women and children fleeing domestic violence situations. If you canplease  make a contribution to this great cause.
