A Special Note From Jaz

Queen Jessica The Millionaire Midwife. I thank you for showing up, being vulnerable and not ashamed or afraid to share your story. I loved how you said to get in the game in play, not a scrimmage but a real game. I love how you allowed God to rescue you in your brokenness and make you an overcomer. I can only imagine the number of women with your same “scar” who were not afforded the opportunity to learn how to push through but I thank God for you because now you can help aid those who need you by helping them become whole and deliver their gift into the world.

What is the challenge you faced before God pressed the reset button?

“Before one can be restarted, they must come to a stop.” So the stop that God ushered me into was my broken engagement.

.

When she was a senior in high school she met a boy who she dated for four years and then got engaged and was for two years. Totally a six-year relationship and God pressed the brakes on it.

.

This was the moment where everything changed.

.

What obstacle did you overcome/testimony? What was the pivotal moment in your life thus far that changed everything?

She put her hands up and surrendered to God.

.

“I stopped fighting for something I was privileged to already, which was -LOVE.”

.

She had to isolate herself and get with God and get real with herself. She remembers a time where she had to set a timer on her phone to go off every few minutes, hours, etc. saying simply, “YOU’RE GONNA BE OKAY!”

.

She felt like her life was over, BUT she made the decision that “I’M NOT GOING TO DIE HERE!”

.

Six years is a long time and there was a time where she felt that she was robbed of her twenties. (Regret and disappointment) They were broken, being co-dependent in their relationship and realized it was no longer a fit anymore.

.

She prayed, “God if this is not your will, break this apart.”

.

Lying. Cheating. Dysfunction.

.

She had to take responsibility for what she had done and what she allowed to be done. She had to lose control.

.

You cannot limit God.

.

She felt something and she prayed. She then noticed the disconnect between herself and her fiance. She was leaning more on and communicating more with Christ.

.

Recognition. Coming to Terms. Announcing to Family. Removal of the ring. SEPARATION.

.

“Healing is never linear. It’s a test, it’s up and down and there are moments where you may slip backward.”

.

IT’S A PROCESS!

.

IF YOU KEEP PRESSING THROUGH IT YOU WILL GET TO [THE OTHER SIDE.] REBIRTH!

.

“I had to forgive somebody who was not sorry!”

.

Forgiveness.

.

Her ex-fiance introduced her to her current church. She had to see him at church, with someone else, and God had to soften her heart.

.

She is a lover and that’s who she is.

.

She had to remember that all men are NOT dogs! She had to remember she had to keep going.

.

“In the valley is where you get your endurance to go up the mountain, up the peak!”

.

How has that shown you the path God has prepared for your life? Steps along your journey.

She was led to The Millionaire Midwife because She noticed that there were a lot of women who resembled her because she never hid her scar.

.

Because of what she had been through she would have conversations with people who saw what she had been through and asked her questions. God was showing her other people and He was showing other people herself as well.

.

He revealed to her who she was supposed to be helping and how she should be helping them.

.

God turned it into her ministry by giving her the name, she is a serial entrepreneur and instantly researched it. She did her homework and secured her name. The Millionaire Midwife, the word midwife will push people to their delivery point.

.

She noticed people are all pregnant with a purpose in different stages.

.

Many of us ask why, and we don’t need to just know why, but we need to know, “what next?”

.

“One day I got out the bed, took my dog outside for a walk and reached my hand in the mailbox, and realized that there were bills on top of bills.” She realized that life was going on without her. She could be on the sidelines or be in the game! Then she had to choose which game. In the scrimmage with God or go to these two a day practices or is she really going to pray and study her word and not just skim through it and highlight. “Am I really going to get into this and find myself again?”

.

Can you share your favorite scripture?

Jeremiah 29:11 [NIV]

29 “ 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.”

.

What do you do daily to let your light shine?

“I know that I have the gift of edification. So I lift people up with words of God, graced through wisdom that God’s given me. It’s uplifting them, whether it’s morally, intellectually, educationally, or spiritually. Through her e-courses.”

.

Name (3) things that you would tell your younger self?

  1. KEEP GOING! “Where you stop is where you stay!” It’s okay to take a break but it’s not okay to stop.”
  2. Don’t worry. It WILL kill you! “From disease to desperation.”
  3. I believe in me! I BELIEVE IN YOU!

Why do you love you some you? What makes you extraordinary?

“I love me because I’m perfect! I understand that my life is not my own and I am here to serve others. I love to serve and I am here to serve people. I love me because I know that my life doesn’t stop in this one-bedroom apartment on the north side of Raleigh. I love that God allows me the valuable imperfect being I am to help on this earth. I love me because I am a Queen! I understand my power that I harness as a woman. We are powerful beyond belief and a lot of us don’t know that.”

10 Seconds of Motivation

“I want you guys to stop dabbling in doubt! The oldest and earthiest trick in the book. In Genesis, satan uses the trick of doubt, adding question to the command of Christ. God simply said, “Don’t eat of this tree or you’ll surely die.” What did satan do? He used that doubt trick, he said, “you won’t surely die will you?” We have to remember guys that it is very dangerous as we invite people to usher us out of the very will of God. Stay in His will, stay in His word and don’t let people instill doubt in what God has spoken over your life.
