Pursuing joy and peace is possible, even when life throws you curveballs and knocks you down.

You’re in the right place if you want to:

Grow in your faith and walk with the Lord.

Be encouraged to be the best YOU possible.

Love yourself just the way you are…flaws and all.

I know that life can be tough! But I’m here to come alongside you and cheer you on as you walk down this journey of life.

Hi, friend. I’m Tshanina!

I’m an entrepreneur and blogger who loves to encourage women to be exactly who God created them to be!

In 2010, I dove out of my comfort zone when I started sharing here on the pages of this blog.

I was an extremely private person but the Lord nudged my heart and encouraged me to start opening up so I began pouring out my heart on the pages of this blog.

A few years later He would again ask me to stretch myself and I began sharing the behind the scenes and real life on Instagram stories. (Even though I was terrified to show my face on camera when I started it has become something that I absolutely love and brings me joy each and every day!)

Fast forward to 2019 when I created my very first product. I never would have dreamed I’d open an Etsy shop in 2020 with faith-based products including my best sellers, personalized affirmations word art!

It’s safe to say I’m not who I was when I started writing here, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

The Lord continues to stretch and grow me into who He wants me to be!

I’m proof that pursing joy and peace is possible, even when life throws you curveballs and knocks you down.

No matter what craziness life throws your way, you don’t have to walk this journey alone.

I don’t pretend to have it all together or have the answers to all of life’s questions.

My commitment is to help you pursue joy + peace and to share what the Lord is teaching me. If perfection is what you’re looking for, I’m not the girl for you. You can expect a real life girl that will shoot you straight and help you laugh along the way. I’m devoted to helping you be the best woman that God created you to be!

Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations!

About Tshanina

This journey of life has led me through valleys of heartache, betrayal, divorce, and depression. But I’m happy to report that the peaks have far outweighed the valleys. My heart has healed, my hope has been renewed, I’ve found love that I never dreamed possible, and I’m learning to pursue joy and peace. And guess what…you can too!

I would have never chosen the difficult days I’ve walked through but they’ve made me into the person that I am today!

Here on the pages of this blog I’m candid about real life and not only share what has helped me along the way but also things that I’m learning.

I’ve openly shared about the pain of divorce from my first marriage, my constant battle with insecurity and how the Lord showed His redeeming love by bringing me a wonderful husband when I least expected it.

Never planning on having children, you can imagine my shock when I received the news of my surprise pregnancy and our son, Dalton! My life has been full of ups and downs but one thing is certain – the Lord’s been with me through it all!

I've jam packed a ton of tips and information for you into this post. While my original intent was to share my skincare routine and products, I just couldn't stop there and am also including how I have enough confidence to go without wearing make-up on my face, how I naturally whiten my teeth, and my favorite beauty and personal care items.
