Echoing Cardi B’s famous phrase “ I'm just a regular, degular, shmegular girl from the Bronx.” Shakira Nicole, a native of the Bronx, NY, has a passion for working with women, families, youth & children, and has extensive experience working with these populations, having been in the field of social work and social services for the past 14 years. Her experience has been diverse in both setting, and socio-economic class as she has worked in schools, homeless shelters, group homes and churches as case manager, counselor, and mentor.
Shakira, a natural motivator, has a strong desire to help those around her live their best lives, starting with using the power of their own words. Now with the release of her very first book My Confessions of Faith: 31 Days to Activate the Power of Your Words, Shakira offers motivational content that teaches people to use their words to create their world so that their dreams can be made a reality.
"A regular, degular, shmegular girl from the Bronx,"
Jeremiah 29:11 - “For I know the plans that I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope for a future.”
If we are being honest with ourselves, life can cause us to feel defeated at times. When we feel defeated, it limits our ability to see God’s plans for our lives. The distance between our faith and God’s promises is often in our words or our self-talk. Faith, in the simplest of terms, is “believing without seeing.” To confess something is to make a factual statement. By confessing our faith, we are making declarative statements of what we know to be true and speaking them into existence without seeing them.
My Confessions of Faith is a 31-day devotional journal that teaches you how to make declarations that will encourage, motivate, and inspire you to walk boldly in faith. Some people say affirmations, but in this book it’s called confessions because your words have power, and they frame your entire world.
With over 5 years of intentional confessions and manifestations, the author shares real and relevant insights on how the words we speak are used to frame and create our world, all based on biblical principles. My Confessions of Faith is full of encouragement, inspiration, and scriptures that will help you increase your faith and live the best life that God has planned for you.
