We kick off our fall series Nehemiah 8:10 “The Joy of the Lord is Your Strength” with effervescent author, coach and podcaster Trish Blackwell who talks about her new book “How to Straighten Your Crown: Rediscovering that You are Seen, You Matter and the King Delights in You” coming out September 10th. Trish shares, “You are loved. You are seen. You are a child of the King. And that changes everything." Trish is a wife, mom, runner, snowboarder, Ironman Triathlete, and a Jesus Follower. She’s passionate about showing women how to walk with worthiness like a confident daughter of the King. You’ll learn how to live more joyfully as royalty as a daughter of God and awaken to Trish’s concept of “delight” and how it gets us to the crown. Trish explains, “In my head, I knew I was a daughter of God, but I didn’t know it in my heart. I knew that He loved me, but delight? Now that’s a generous word. The depth of intimacy that God wants from us is incredible. There are sisters who are sleeping. They need boldness so they can remember that they’re not too far gone to have lost their deep connection as His child." Trish hosts “The Confidence Podcast” that helps women get freedom from self-doubt, achieve more and ooze confidence. Learning to have God as our foundation for self-confidence can be as basic as retraining our mind and taking our thoughts captive, daily. Trish challenges us to take our most pervasive thought and ask, “what is the thought I’m thinking? Is it the truth? Would God want me to think this? Just as we have physical, oral and spiritual hygiene, we also need “confidence hygiene." Trish’s favorite life verse is Isaiah 55:12. Trish laughs, “I look at it as a premise. ‘You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace. The mountains and the hills will burst into song before you and the trees in the field will clap their hands.' I feel like I’m in the ’Sound of Music. For a little girl who lived with insecurity, anorexia, anxiety, this is now my daily verse. Joy and peace? That’s me!”
