We asked Chimamaka for Clues

Something that catalyzed your growth - besides working hard?

First, discovering my identity not by the world’s standards but by God’s preordination.

Then, investing in knowledge & guidance. This one is a powerful combo and Game-changing ammunition: Knowledge to empower, and guidance to show you how to go. This has given me speed, a model to follow, and a picture of possibilities.

Something you're most proud of?

The state of my soul – surrendered to God, committed to total healing & wholeness, pure and without guilt, bitterness or any drama despite the experiences I’ve had.

Showing Up! – Being my most authentic self, telling my stories, expressing myself without fear, shame, or needing to fit in. Expressing my giftings across various sectors, leaving a legacy of love, faith, and healing.

On Showing Up

Show Up, you are enough! It is possible to achieve peace, progress, and profit. Keep going, it compounds.

Worth Remembering

God isn’t fragile or insecure. He is a safe space to process difficult conversations & emotions.
