At the beginning of this year, I was filled with anxiety and I was feeling hopeless. But God did something in me. He restored my hope and helped me turn a corner emotionally, spiritually and vocationally. Out of that time, I created this manifesto. I now read it out loud every morning and by the time I get to the end, I am fired up! Perhaps this will encourage you to create a manifesto of your own. Much love, -Elisabeth 


I have created something out of nothing, and that’s no small thing.

I am bearing spiritual and financial fruit.

God sweetly confirmed my calling with exactly the number of clients I asked for.

I am helping women become more whole and move closer to God.

I am using my gifts.

I’m a hustler. I am not lazy. I am not a disappointment to God.

This is my beauty from ashes. This is my “so that”.

I am giving up some worldly things for helping people.

I get my marching orders from God. I will listen to HIM, not “them”. This decision is between me and my husband and God, and no one else. I am going to obey God. I am going to follow God. ONLY.

The enemy is only attacking because he knows there’s something good to steal, something that needs stopping…he doesn’t want any more women healed through my work. The more naysayers, the better. That just means I’m doing something meaningful and scary to the enemy.

What I do is a real job, and it’s a hard job, and not just anyone could do my job.

Kingdom work is full-time work, and it’s the most important work.

Let the dogs bark; I’ve got work to do.

I will be fearless in the execution of my calling.

Eyes on Jesus.

I am the unconditionally beloved daughter of the Father God and he is smiling over me.

I commit this day to you, Jesus, and ask that you establish the work of my hands into eternity.

In May, I will be holding my new Beauty for Ashes three-week e-course again. Email me to get on the waiting list!

Life isn't always how we want it. When change seems elusive, and we're stuck in old routines, a gentle push or some self-reflection can make a difference. Let these questions be that nudge to get you moving.
