Hey friends – welcome to the Empower series! I’m Jovanie Smith – but, let’s not be so formal – you can call me JoJo.

Well, you’re probably wondering, ‘what is the Empower series’ so let me tell ya!

The Empower series is a new blog series geared towards young women, with the purpose of encouraging, investing in and guiding them (YOU!) through this crazy journey called life.

As we go along, we are going to be tackling such topics as:

  • Self-Identity
  • Community (Having a Tribe)
  • God’s Plan (and I’m not talking about Drake): What is God’s Plan for Us
  • Social Media
  • Mentorship
  • Are Women Really Valued in the Church?
  • Is it Wrong to Slide in the DM? Asking for a Friend

The list goes on, but you get the point.

Through the use of stories, videos and listicles, we’ll aim to be intentional and honest with you about the realities and challenges of life.

Are you guys ready?

Let’s do this.
