OVERCOMER: Jacqueline Presley

Oh, this little lady is one that makes my NWA worlds keep colliding.  Every time I look up, she is connected to the new friends I'm making or in the personal interest groups I'm trying to connect too. (and I love the surprise of seeing her face!)  Definitely one little mama that's not afraid of the fun moment (I always tell her I want to be one of her kids when I grow up).  Her kids are fun because she is not afraid to say yes! - yes to playing in the creek on a summer afternoon, yes to eating a cupcake instead of protein, yes to making music videos in the carpool line and yes to wearing a green thrift store t-shirt with a leopard knit skirt.  Seriously....I told you she is amazing!

I give you Jacqueline - my selfie taking, memory making, Rolando's eating, leopard print wearing, overcoming friend! (she even learns how to use new apps and then lets me tag along on her lesson!)

  • What have you OVERCOME? People-Pleasing
  • What was your turning point? Realizing that I wanted real friends who like me for who I am, not what I project.  I wanted to live an authentic life.
  • 5 word life mantra - My hope is in the LORD.
  • Quote you live by - That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong." II Cor 12:10

Jacqueline-one of the sweetest girls I got to meet at AWBU. I got over people pleasing years ago-at least the ones I didn't look up to or respect. I still find it difficult to not want to please those that inspire me. It's hard to not want to be liked.
