I would go on record to say that I believe that we are the busiest generation of parents that this world has ever experienced! My goodness! Just about everyone in this time and generation is BUSY! Are you busy? If you’re a mother, do you think that you might be getting too busy for your kids? I’ll tell you, it’s like being busy is the new “in” thing! Let me say here that there is absolutely nothing wrong with being busy doing what [...]

When, If, and How to Confront Someone

2018-02-12T08:42:53+00:00 Arguements, Christian women speaker, Christian Women's Blog, conflict resolution, confrontation, how to confront someone, Hurt feelings, Inside Out with Courtnaye, Offense, when to confront someone|

Hands down, confrontation is not easy. I think I could vouch for many when I say, "No one really likes confrontation." Mainly, because it's awkward. Other reasons I believe are because we don't quite know how the other person will respond. Yet, that's when we have to pray and decide when, if, and how we need to confront someone. Again, one reason why I think we don’t jump at the opportunity with great excitement or determination to confront someone is because we [...]

Run from Flattery

2018-02-05T11:31:38+00:00 Christian women speaker, Flattery, Inside Out with Courtnaye, Lying|

In this post, I have a quick test that I’d love for you to take! It’s on flattery. It should only take less than 60 seconds. But in the meantime, let me ask you this question. Did you know that flattery is a sin? YES! It is - so run from it like a plague! And what I mean by that is, run from doing it. In all actuality, it doesn’t really help the receiver or hearer, because if you’re honest, it doesn’t come [...]

Don’t Doubt Yourself

2018-02-04T23:49:23+00:00 Blog for Christian Women, Doubt, Faith, Inside Out with Courtnaye|

I’m going to jump right into this one, because I want to encourage you right from the start! What’s got you doubting yourself? Were there negative words spoken to you (or over you)? Have you been meditating on negative thoughts that the enemy has planted in your mind and now you’re entertaining them? If so, shake them off, sis. Don’t let that stuff weigh you down. Don’t doubt yourself any longer, because God wouldn’t want you to! Actually, the opposite of [...]

Studying A Book of the Bible

2018-01-22T07:05:40+00:00 Bible Study, Blog for Christian Women, Christian women speaker, Inside Out with Courtnaye|

  In this busy life that many of us are living these days, we have to make time to get into God’s Word. I know that we have to get the kids off to school and extracurricular activities, clean the house, wash clothes, cook dinner, take care of the hubby’s needs (if you’re married), and do the work that needs to be done, whether that’s a day job or ministry. But again, we have to make the intentional effort to get into the Word of [...]

Need Rest?

Are you tired, sis? Do you need a break? If you do, then guess what? You are not alone. These days, with the rat race, daily demands at home and work, ministry assignments, endless entrepreneurial ideas, and social media craze, I would think we all could use some much needed rest. If you’re tired, then let me remind you of this familiar, yet timely comforting verse from Jesus’ own lips, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I [...]

  Now, I’m going to start this post by asking you a few deep questions. As a woman, wife, or mother, I want you to think back for a moment of how it was when you were growing up. How was your childhood? How were your teenage years? What about your young adult years? Were there some things that you witnessed either through your parents, upbringing, or your circle of friends that were hard to take in, maybe even hurtful? Are there some things in [...]
