TACONDRA L. BROWN
Wife | Mother | Author | Creative Entrepreneur | Speaker
The graceful, confident & bold woman I am today is not who I was years ago. I was once insecure, fearful, broken, bound, and empty inside. I lived life aimlessly trying to fill voids in my heart with people, material things, achievements, and whatever of value that could give my life meaning. You wouldn't believe how much I struggled with ungodly beliefs, feeling inadequate, unfruitful, helpless and hopeless. Not to forget I was confused about my life purpose too! Many of my problems were rooted in trauma from rejection, hurt, fear, loss and pain.
At this point, you're probably wondering what's my story? Well, I'll give you the short version...
You see, I grew up as "little miss perfect". The one who could do no wrong and was often rejected for being different. I felt pressured to perform for the affirmation and approval of people. Then one day, it finally happened...one poor decision led to me, "little miss perfect", getting pregnant. The guilt and shame of my mistake anguished me for nine long months. I was 18 years old when my sweet little blessing entered this world. She was 6lbs and 9 ounces of pure joy. Nevertheless, the pain still had me in its grip. Due to complications after giving birth to her I was rushed into emergency surgery. Imagine the joy of beholding the sight of a beautiful bright-eyed baby girl one minute then awakening from a deep sleep hours later in pain...barren. Stripped of my womb and the essence of what makes me a woman. Deprived of my capacity to carry and give birth. From that moment forward my life changed drastically and I didn't have a clue of just how much. In the years following, I felt robbed of my femininity and identity. I blamed God and even my husband for my loss due to prior circumstances before giving birth to our daughter. I resented him deeply as the years went by. Why? Because I felt incomplete as a woman while he still possessed every part that made him whole as a man.
I often questioned God, Why me? What did I do to deserve this punishment?
Again, this overwhelming pressure to perform and produce in life what other women could do so effortlessly crushed me. Yet, I paraded around like a broken beauty wearing a mask of confidence and contentment; feeling ashamed and inadequate to even ask for help. After all, "no one on earth could understand my pain", I thought. So, I named stinking thinking my therapist, and prescribed isolation as my treatment. A dark cloud of barrenness hovered over me until I became comfortable hiding under its shadow. I grew fearful of experiencing new things and I built walls around my heart to protect myself from more hurt and rejection. The weariness of masking my deficiencies and insecurities became too heavy. I was tired of being broken; defending the person I was at the expense of becoming the woman I knew God designed me to be. I failed miserably at trying to control my own life for years, so I cried out to God in full surrender and placed my life's broken pieces into the hands of the only One who could make me whole. I'm so glad that God loved me too much to leave me the way I was. Now, here I stand today...Healed, Empowered, and Restored! I haven't arrived...My story is still being written, as is yours. My journey is simply proof that there is healing, freedom, and beauty in brokenness God's way. You only need to surrender to His process. I'd personally love to share more of my process with you!
My mission is to make healing and wholeness something wounded women and men run towards rather than continuing to run away from.
I do this mostly through mentoring, prophetic counseling, speaking, and teaching about identity, worth, inner-healing and deliverance, the transformational process of being restored and realigned with God's view of you.
Take a Chance At Trusting Yourself...
You may be one who thinks you don't need a mentor, coach, guide, or voice of reason in your life. Maybe you don't! I understand that the Holy Spirit is the ultimate teacher and guide. I also know life is a great teacher when we choose to grow from our experiences. But every now and then God will send what you didn't know you needed; someone to love you, stretch you, and usher you into another dimension and level of His purpose and plan for your life. Perhaps, I'm that "someone" for you. I understand that opening your heart to something new can be difficult; especially if you've been hurt, deceived, mishandled, and taken advantage of in the past. The trauma of broken trust, pain, and rejection leads to self-protection, and trust me...I have the t-shirt, coffee mug, and the hat for it all!
I don't have any underlying motives! I truly care and love to see people grow because I know what it is like to be stuck! I'm simply a guide along your journey; not the standard, measure, or ride to your final destination!
Here's the caveat though, you must trust God (and yourself), and be ready to do your part to show up with the right mindset!
I want you to know that healing, wholeness & true freedom is not only possible for you, but it is your portion! And that includes the freedom to build, create, live, love, and confidently trust God through your process of transformation!
I've learned that pain is often the pathway to a greater purpose and power within you. But you must allow God to transform the pain in your story for His glory!
Your pain will either own you or OWE you! Believe me, you might as well make it pay you!
If you're ready to be developed, built, nourished, and nurtured in your process, give yourself permission to say "yes" to you!
