1. Give us an overview of the evolution of Geneva (who you were, who you are, and who you want to be).
Geneva was a shy, overweight girl born in Newark, NJ. I grew up with a lot of friends, but I never wanted to be seen so I stuck to reading and playing video games. I used to have very low self-worth for most my life until I got married and divorced within a six-month time period. After that I found my true identity in Christ. I am now a woman walking in my purpose. During that period, I purposed to write a devotional book as part of my emotional healing process. The devotional has an accompanying workbook. The devotional is scheduled to release August 8, 2017. I also wrote an e-book on self-sabotage. The top three topics I am purposed to talk about are self-worth, knowing your identity, and emotional healing. I want to be a woman who inspires other women to know who they are, what they can accomplish, and truly discover how powerful they are through Christ. Oh, and that they can still have fun as a Christian Millennial wife, single, etcetera.
2. What was your most proud moment in your life and career?
My most profound moment in my life and career was one in the same. After finishing RN school, I was still unfulfilled. I couldn’t get a better job at that time and my life was a mess. The one thing that I thought would make me happy did nothing. I spent thirty-thousand on it!! In that moment, the only person I could go to was God. Everything else frustrated me!
3. What is your take on what it means to be a Millennial Wife and Woman today?
A Millennial woman/wife today to me means that you tackle many things. We have to be mom, CEO, and in some cases employee all at the same time. I know that we are driven, sassy, and filled with so many great ideas that we don’t know what to do with, but we just keep dreaming. A millennial wife is a go getter! We need motivation daily to keep going, but we know what lies ahead if we persevere. For me as a millennial wife/mom, I also need my support team. I need my husband and my girls who have my back 100%. We pray for and with each other. We offer wisdom to each other when needed and we never sugar coat anything.
4. What are you currently working on? Any upcoming projects?
I am currently finishing up my first six-week course called Emotional BootCamp (EBC). The focus of EBC is to bring clarity to your purpose, identity, and self-worth through biblical principles. In addition, I am finishing up my website and getting prepared for the release of His Beloved which is a 65-day devotional with an accompanying declaration/workbook. The release date is set for August 8, 2017.
5. How do you motivate yourself daily?
I motivate myself by reading something inspirational daily and saying positive declarations. Like every single day, I am declaring freedom in all areas over myself, children, basically my whole family. It wasn’t always like this. Every day I am growing and I learned that I was my own worst enemy. Once I realized that, I was able to see clearly and move forward into what I am doing right now .
6. What advice do you have for women out there who feel it’s too late to follow their dreams because they have a husband and/or family now?
My advice to women who think that it’s too late is to get over yourself! (Is that too harsh?!?!) Time waits for no one. So we either have a choice to get up early or stay up late to do the things that we desire or we just live life unfulfilled. I could have been in bed instead of answering these questions. I could have used the excuse that I could do it another day, but my passion for helping women and letting them know that they can still live out their dreams outweighs my fleshly desire to sleep. The way I see it, once my dreams come true I’ll be able to make my own schedule. Until then, I push through and they should also!
7. What is your mission/purpose in life?
My mission/purpose in life is to teach women to align their mouths and thoughts with their true identity. The foundation of their identity is found in Christ. I teach basic principles to get more excited about reading the bible and how to love yourself so that when it’s time to be a wife we don’t have to back track through past hurts and disappointments. I also help rebuild self-worth. I just want to motivate women so they know they are powerful and loved by God.
