I AM community

I had the Pleasure to have a Live interview with Nikki Pryce founder of IAM community. Although, the enemy tried us with numerous technological issues we managed to PUSH through and get it done. My iphone literally blacked out 3x, the sound wasn't working for us, the drama. *pass out* .

On a serious note we wanted to talk deeply about community and the importance of not doing life alone, Postpartum depression and I am affirmation. Here is the Q&A just in case you missed it or just want to dive in again.

1. Where did your inspiration for fashion/blogging come from?

Fashion has always been my Passion as cliché as that may sound. I feel like growing up in New York living in a melting pot of different cultures I took from that aspect of my life. I truly believe it’s a gift that God has given me. Even when I said I’m not doing fashion anymore some way I end up back in that industry. Blogging as well. I started a blog in 2014-15 name Shinelle nouvelle it was all about fashion. life happened I stopped blogging some how I'm here again. My blog now is named Faith of a Fashion MOM. I believe God wants me to share my gifts and I’m finally being obedient. Faith is talking about my walk as a Christian. Newly baptized on Feb 4th 2018. As I’m pouring out in this section of my blog I’m also pouring into myself. I love how this section challenge me. For quite time with God. To dive into my bible. Before I even write anything I have to pray about it. Fashion I'm re launching my business as an image consultant. This section is giving my readers a glimpse of who I am style wise and what I bring to the table. Also giving great tips about styling for every occassion .This is an industry I have 10 plus years of experience in. Mom I call this my new super power. As a new mom I have to find ways to not only entertain but teach my son. I’m sharing all the good, the bad and beautiful moments. Letting parents know its OK not to be perfect. One of my blog post I spoke about postpartum depression and dealing with that. It’s a situation that doesn’t discriminate.I had all the support from my family. It was more of a letter to doctors to say we need to do more after birth care for moms.

2. Why is it Important to have Godly community?

I know now as a Christian how important this is. I use to be that girl that thought I could figure it all out on my own. In reality I "Yuh need" help. It was the craziest defense mechanism. God quickly humbled me on that. When he snatched everything from me and I needed people. Luckily for me I had a community that I just wasn’t utilizing. Standing on the other side now I see how the enemy wants to isolate us because when we come together as Christians the miracles and blessing we can release will glorify GOD. I’m grateful for that moment because God has shown me that Godly community not only lift you up and give you advice. Godly community will pray for you and with you. There is power in prayer. There is even more power in praying together. The bible clearly tells us how powerful it is when we pray together.

James 5:16
Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.
Matthew 18:19-20
Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.”
James 5:14-15
Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

I wrote a whole post on Faith of a fashion mom with a lot more details. I can speak on this for hours.

3. Do I experience Godly community in “I am community?”
