You never know whose life you will touch as you journey along the way. Had no idea that what God laid on my heart to write on that day would impact the life of another as it did for Vernon. Here is the post that made the difference: Random – It’s Not Easy, But Looking Ahead It Will Be Worth It! God bless you and thank you the mention. To God be all the glory. 🙂

Self Reflection

untitled (19)My blogging journey started in May, 2012. I had been pondering the thought of blogging for several months but at this particular time the thought was strong. Me and wife (My wife’s name is Nicole but I call her wife. One day I will share why, but as for now, lets just say it’s spiritual) had just gotten married the month before.

I was on a high that no internal battle I was experiencing could had stopped me. I believe that’s where I got the courage to walk through it, but mostly I believe it was part of God’s will for me. I say that because I didn’t know anything about blogging and I didn’t know anything about proper grammar either. But God placed certain people on this journey to inspire me and encourage me to keep on going.

We all can remember the first person who followed us or commented first on our blog. I know I can. Her name is Suzanne and she writes with…

About Yvonne I. Wilson (774 Articles)
Yvonne is a positive thinker, a catalyst for change, and a conduit through which holistic healing takes place and destiny is fulfilled. Her ministry through her blog, Empowerment Moments, came at a very low point in her life and was born out of much adversity, persecution, physical abuses, and rejection to the point of her being suicidal. She was left feeling defeated and shrunk back by fear. But through some miraculous means, God has given her pain purpose and a unique voice through which He speaks to touch the untouchable, to reach the unreachable and to empower, inspire, motivate, encourage and uplift the hurting and spiritually wounded to bring about healing and wholeness - mind, body, soul and spirit, one person at a time.

  3. Hi Yvonne

    I must say that you really hit a nerve. I was touched by your story. I must commend the fact that you have such a busy schedule and you can still bless and impact people. Thank you for sharing this story.


    • Hi Ikechi

      Glad to hear that you were touched by this story. Here we often say, God works in wonders His miracles to perform. This is one such occasion where I can clearly say that He place people in our lives and along our pathway to be a continual blessing to us. Everything in life has a purpose and a reason for taking place. We just have to dig more for its deeper meaning and how it is related to our destiny. Have a blessed weekend and upcoming week ahead.


  4. Hi Yvonne,

    In the journey of life we are alone but if we get support of any loved once then it would be easy for us to walk.

    While blogging you may face many problems but for the solution you will get the support of many people. Many may be your dear once but strangers are also here to help you.

    I am glad to read this article.

    Thanks for re-sharing.
    Have a nice weekend.:)



    • Hi Ravi good to have you back lending your support and giving such positive feedback.

      There are persons who we will all meet and who seem willing to help others. I think it is a matter of discerning the ones that are really genuine and who do not have any hidden agenda and that’s the one you connect with for sure.

      Thanks for your participation and do have a wonderful weekend.


  5. Hi Yvonne,

    I just read the little shared here and then thought to go over to Vernon’s, as I hadn’t been so far and come back here and leave my comment. But I think I’d head over to his and encourage our new community member – here I always visit 🙂

    Hope you have a nice and relaxing weekend as well 🙂


    • Oh absolutely Harleena. As a matter of fact I was hoping that you stopped by his blog and give words of encouragement. 🙂 Glad you did go and give the support. We are united. Love the team spirit. 🙂 .

      Have a wonderful weekend and get some R&R yourself

  7. Hello Madam Yvonne,

    That was very motivational. I felt differently after going through that post.

    When i started blogging, i felt like i wasn’t welcomed at all, i found it difficult to interact with fellow bloggers, my posts weren’t getting any comments. I decided to quit blogging, but after reading success stories like this one, i was inspired, the thought of doubt left me.

    I thank God for bringing me to learn about Empowerment Moment blog, Aha-Now community and some other people that have helped during this few weeks of my blogging career.

    I have come to learn that hardwork and perserverance are the key to a successful blog.

    Thanks for sharing this with us.

    • Hi ferdiklint,

      Wow! happy to hear that the post had a positive impact on you. I am sure many more blogger can attest to the fact that they too felt left out and pushed aside in the blogging arena when they first got started. With time however you learn to adopt and to grow into your own ‘skin’ so to speak even though I am sure that is one of the top reasons why many bloggers have abandoned their blog.

      As the journey continues too, you know when you have found the right community – you begin to feel different on the inside. You feel a genuine love that is exhibited among the people in the community. You feel welcomed and it does feel like a virtual home with fellow bloggers as your online family. I am honored to hear that you have found such a place at Empowerment Moments Blog and by extension, at Aha-Now community.

      More power to you and pray the best for you and that you will have success along the way. And remember “be yourself, everyone else is already taken.” Blessings! 🙂
