The launch of the summer edition of Purity W/Style online magazine is FINALLY here! I am so excited to continue tosee this vision that was birthed in my heart four years ago continue to grow and develop into what God wants it to be. This website, now in the form of an online magazine is a one stop shop for all things fashion, faith and lifestyle. The Purity W/Style brand is all about challenging the status quo, being rebels in the midst of today’s culture and bringing a new light and fire to what it means to boldly, passionately and unapologetically live for God without compromising on having a fun, fulfilling and AMAZINGLY satisfying lifestyle. At about six months into being 30 years old (It’s so LIT!!!) I am living proof that Falling into Formation of God’s plan for your life and who he wants you to be is the ABSOLUTE best decision you could ever make! By the way, “Fall into Formation” that’s the theme for this month’s issue!
In November I will be celebrating 6 years of being on this abstinence journey. While there have definitely been ups and downs, trials and victories, when I think about where I am today, how my life and whole world has been totally transformed and elevated for the better because of that one decision back in November 2011, I am simply amazed. Living in today’s society we are encouraged to “Fall into Formation” of the standards that the world deems as acceptable. We are taught to say what we want, do what we want, when we want to do it and with whom we want to do it. YOLO, right???…….WRONG! I don’t know if you have noticed, but “Falling into Formation” of the world’s standards in the end, after it’s all said and done, only leaves you deceived, broken, and ultimately worse off than you started, trying to put the pieces of your heart, emotions and mind back together. Man, if they only gave you that disclaimer before you followed this path. The reality is that there is a better way, a better road that leads to everything you desire AND MORE! This better way is called a personal relationship with God through his son Jesus Christ, it’s called knowing who you are in Christ, who you have been called to be as a child of God, and as a result walking in purity not just in the area of sex, and what you do with your bodies (until we are married, of course!), but in every area of your life.
Whether you know it or not everyday, with every decision, and every action we make we are choosing to “Fall into Formation”. The question is who’s plan are we aligning our lives with, God’s or the world”s? Falling into Formation and aligning with God’s plan for you doesn’t mean that you lose yourself, your personality or the essence of what makes you YOU! Not at all. Falling into Formation and aligning with God’s plan for you means that you accept, align with and live out the standard that has been established before us. And, not just live it out and manage through it, but thrive making Jesus visible through our everyday lifestyle’s along the way.
In this issue we are diving into all lifestyle topics from finances to relationships such as Successfully Single or Naw, Budgeting 101, and a dope feature with artist, Rick DBNR talking about his EP project called Grace. We hope that that with everything you experience as a result of your connection to this brand it encourages you a little more to confidently “Fall Into Formation” with focus and passion to the great plans and things that God has in store for you!
