Erica Inspires was birthed out of a desire to use my testimony to encourage others.
When I was finally ready to face my fears and heal from a past full of sexual, mental, and emotional abuse I knew it wouldn’t be easy. There would be days when I would want to quit the journey and give up on life. But, God used His word to comfort me and amazing people to encourage me.
To keep myself motivated, I would write out positive phrases and reassuring scriptures I could turn to throughout my day. I bought a journal with “You are so worth it” written across the front. It was the perfect thing to remind me that no matter the lies of the enemy or negative words from others, I AM WORTH IT…and SO ARE YOU.
After years of being silent, God showed me that people needed to hear truth, have a safe place to be vulnerable, and know that redemption, restoration, and healing are possible.
I write to inspire. I write to inform. I speak, tell my truth, and share my experiences so others may move from a place of shame to a place of boldness, knowing that we overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony (Revelation 12:11). When we know the truth, it sets us free (John 8:32). This has happened for me, and I am confident it can happen for you, too.
It is my desire that you will be inspired to break free from the pain of your past and/or present.
