Voice of Choice, Speak With Poise



Let Women Empowerment Solutions be your voice

We'll speak with poise and above all the noise

Make the choice, stop domestic violence

Abuse is rude, shrewd, and has a nasty attitude

Grateful today for a plethora of supporters, including you, that make a difference, it's not a

coincidence

Shattered no more, she's not lain on the floor, but up, up, up

pursuing her dreams with thumbs up with a coffee cup or a baby bump, or atop a mountain and

stump, with a pump, eating an apple crump

Oh the opportunities

Taking Shape




Keep working toward your goal

Some days may be better than some, that is okay.

Get back up and take action.

Each hour, you get smarter than what you were before.

Someone needs to see your smile.

Your laughter is contagious.

There is only one you. Some may have the same first, middle, or even last name.....but nobody else 

has your DNA! God made your perfect the way you are.

So what do you say, wipe off your tears (if you have them)

Look in the mirror and tell yourself that you are WORTHY of a living a vibrant life!

Take shape and look at your hourglass. Not talking about the "model" figure-

You are all brains, smiles, happy, exciting, fun, daring, full of courage and might, and can bounce 

back from anything. Use what you have and move forward, you have what it takes. It's always

been there, it's just waiting for you!

Perfect Control, Use Your Sniffer

Being in the "know" takes skill, right? You either know what a "controlling" personality smells like or you don't. Can you sniff him out like a dog (dogs have great noses, they can sniff out anything)?

What are his characteristics that would give you some clues?

* Does he need to know where you are ALL of the time...or does he give you ease  that you aren't stuck to him like chewing gum on hot cement on a hot summer day?

* He needs to be in constant communication with you ....or does he relax when you have "you" time?

*Is he absurdly vocal about who you are hanging with .....or is OKAY with whom you spent you time with: friend, cousin, coworkers, etc?

*He needs to check on you via text every 5 minutes/calls you every few minutes/maybe its a random check?

The firs answer in each sentence are all controlling signs.

These are a fraction of the controlling signs. Make sure you know them.

www.POPSUGAR.com is the source, make sure that you have some recourse, domestic violence is disgusting. We are here to EMPOWER you or someone that you know.

Decisiveness Brings Change: Transition




You or someone you know is dressed to go places; Work, children's activities, stop by the grocery store for milk, eggs, juice, cereal, basic stuff.

Something happened in the midst of all that and now, boom! It's time to find a new place to live.
That's no fun when abuse wiggles it's way through the door. Actually, you've seen it there for a while, it comes in patterns. The verbal starts in the morning, you still go to work and don't know how you got through the day. Then, you get home and hope you don't have to deal with it anymore.

Your day is getting better as the clock ticks because you're making a lifelong decision! But, what do you take? How do you leave....the front or back door....or through a window?

Many women across the nation do have this question. Maybe not for themselves, maybe it is for a neighbor or for a co-worker or a relative, and then again, for a good friend. 

Making the transition can be a tough choice since it is a life decision to move forward. Various questions come to mind and then, are there funds available? With various shelters across the nation and support readily available, the transition can take place. Be encouraged today and know that life will get better, just include the Holy Spirit as you move forward. How do you do that if you can't see Him, right? Say "Holy Spirit, I need you, guide me please, thank you Lord, I receive you, in Jesus name, amen."

Psssst......Did You Hear That?



What is the safest plan for your exit? I'm not talking about tornadoes, hurricanes, or typhoons...although, this considered a storm, just not that "type" of storm.

You might be sitting in a restaurant enjoying some savory mashed potatoes, well seasoned fried chicken and a side order of corn on the cob, then, some people come sit next to your booth.

They start talking about their neighbor, Misty and how she's trying to get away from an abusive relationship. They really want to help this young woman, but how?

Misty is not married to the guy, but, she's been living with him for two years and has a sweet little girl with him, and, one on the way. Misty is not that happy because her guy calls her so many names.
They neighbor heard while they were loading up the pickup that Misty would like to look for new transportation method because she felt that would be safer for the children. He said "#$^$&, we'll do it my way, these kids will be fine you &*(()&%%@"....and that was that. Yeah, so some choice words.

What would you do to help Misty? Maybe you do get five minutes to talk with her and encourage about another transportation method or how to deal or not deal with the many situations that she is dealing with.

There are many "Misty's" or other young ladies dealing with the same type of "verbal" abuse that need attention. Women Empowerment Solutions is here to help and guide women to a better life, filled with confidence, boundaries, exciting life with no abuse, and one with our most high, Jesus Christ. Blessed be the name of the Lord.

2ax + a or....20 + 20



Math is used daily in household finances, businesses, classrooms, and empowering women from domestic violence.

We do know that statistics are high for women that do not leave the perpetrator for one reason or another (finances, children, security, support).

They are scared, guessing if the outcome will be favorable for them or not. It doesn't matter what race these ladies are, what their backgrounds may be, or the job that they have, they still have the ultimate decision to make for themselves, and, for their children if they have any.

Women Empowerment Solutions is here to encourage and let women know that there is hope. Keep thinking about your tomorrow in a positive way even if it doesn't seem like people and conversations around you are going all that well. Change things: Living environment, people that you surround yourself  and associate with. Your future is bright and full of goodness.

It takes a strong woman to step into a new future. A new life with zero chaos, zero distractions. The special person is someone that treats you with respect and you shall introduce new boundaries of what is acceptable and not acceptable to you.

Remember the math, your days ahead are many; full of joy, hope, faith, love, motivation, encouragement, laughter, intelligence, and boldness. That is the sum total, and you get bonus points too. God loves you.

The Right Mix



When we have all of the ingredients to make a cake, we get this beautiful pan of sweetened wheat (that is what it is).

Combining flour, sugar, eggs, maybe some chocolate, lemon zest, or coconut to make it a specific kind of cake among other ingredients. When we do not have all of the ingredients from the Betty Crocker or Duncan Hines cake mix box, we make it from scratch (or maybe you make it from scratch anyway...that's awesome if you do!).

How about when ladies try their best to move forward from domestic violence? If they have the right mix: Support, finances, transitional housing, transportation (aka....the cake mix), counseling, they can easily cross the bridge and make a new life for themselves.

But, what if, and many times, there is the, "what if" a woman trying to make a better life for herself and children (if she has children), does not have that "mix", what then? Many do get creative and move on, while others do not.

I am excited and thrilled that there is a way for all ladies to move forward. One thing is, the lady, whatever age she is, must make that decision for herself and do what is necessary for her.

Like making cake, you can obtain all of the necessary mix (ingredients) to make your prosperous move creating something wonderful for yourself: A solution. Take baby steps to do it and I know that you will get there.

Cakes take different forms (double layers, single, sheet cake, bundt, cupcakes, cheesecake, sponge cake, etc), bake at different temperatures, and can be decorated into a masterpiece....are you with me? Then, cakes are celebrated at birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, special occasions, various celebrations, and are just fun to eat.

You are a very beautiful creation. You have a lot to offer and decorated in make-up or not, you have quite a bit to share with the world, so make that step and go for it!
