This challenge is helping me on my journey to focus on the aspects of my life that I have struggled with for years and that is order and time. By completing the time sheets it has increased my awareness of how I spend time and just how much I over commit myself with projects which then take me off the path that God wants me to BE. This Challenge is phenomenial for it is NOT Dee Marshall that is directing it but Dee is the facilitator of what God has placed in her and she is being an excellent steward who points us back to our life book which is the WORD of GOD. At the end of the seven weeks, if nothing else you will have scriptures that can direct you and keep you on the path. I also love that Dee continues to remind us that we DO NOT HAVE TO BE PERFECT... and I can't tell you how many times those words have helped me when I review my time sheet at the end of the day. I thank you Dee and your entire Greatness Team.

I just wanted to thank you for all of your hard work. The James challenge has been such an amazing blessing to me, ESPECIALLY at this stage in my life. I had some trepidation about starting the challenge because I wasn't sure how I would do, and I did not want to disappoint myself. However, I am happy to report that I completed the challenge AND did well. When you said, "This is a challenge. It's going to be challenging. So challenge yourself." That statement is what made me decide to try, and I am so glad I did. That experience was life-changing for me. Some of the changes have yet to manifest, but the seeds are there!
I have been repeating the challenge every week since it has ended. I am moving forward into REAL and LASTING change.
God bless you and your team!

"Your challenge was the icing on the cake. I have been searching
for HOW for a long time. I have been praying asking for help and guidance.
I wasn't until yesterday after the challenge that I realized all of this.
I was waking up to make the calls but was so afraid to speak up. There was a moment when you called me out I was going to step up, but someone beat me to it. Yesterday I didn't make the call, but listened to the playback.... When you talked about the "how" and the need for there to be
balance it spoke to me. When you talked about intent and not being so
hard on ourselves, you spoke to me. When you talked about breaking cycles and moving from observing to participation, you spoke to me. I was
blessed hearing the other women and their stories. It is my desire to implement these things into my life and reconnect with who I really am. I
thank you!! I look forward to the 7 week challenge, so please count me

BEFORE This 7Day Challenge was a blessing, a wake up call that I had been living in complete chaos these past few months. The challenge helped me to realize that I accumulated clutter mentally and physically. I thought everything was alright, but I began to feel fatigue, tired, and crabby. My relationships wearing on me two in particular very close ones. I never really had anyone to hold me accountable for anything. I prayed for a accountability partners always.
Work was wearing on me heavy, school, and trying to have time to do organize and start my business. I started eating unhealthy again, and this is a big no-no!! My ministry is one of health and wellness teaching people from all walks of life how to eat, but also how to be balanced spiritually, mentally, and physically through the word. When the head is not balanced/right the body is out of order. This was me before the challenge, I got quiet I couldn't give a encouraging word or nothing. I scored a 3.
After The Challenge (Beginning) I'm aware of things that I wasn't before and i'm so grateful for God moving through you always. This challenge was a slap up side my head. Thank you for your accountability to make me step up and speak up during the challenge. My faith has increased to another level. I can't wait for the next seven weeks; then to learn the how's to get my whats (vision) out for the kingdom. I'm going to continue the challenge until we start the new one, but fasting this time...

Wow! I’ve been so blessed doing the 7 day challenge and I’m so very excited about the upcoming 7 week challenge. I’m so blessed to have stumbled across this site don't know how divine providence, because we know nothing just happens. Dee has really blessed my soul, and the praying sisters Oh! To God be the glory. You can’t buy it (this accountabilty program) if she put a price on it. we couldn’t afford it, its life changing and and an investment in Me, It’s better than any therapy that I have ever have gotten because it comes from God and if you can’t receive what God has for you, from this Woman of God then we really need to pray. Thanks to you my sister friend the 7 day has made me, make changes and I’m glad about it, God is not finished with me yet he is molding me to be the Woman of God that he has called me to be and I will walk in it. Keep up the blessed work you and your staff.

I give my Heavenly Father/Lord & Savior Jesus Christ ALL the GLORY for life and thank HIM for Girlfriend's Pray!!! This ministry has blessed immeasurably. A year ago I was depressed, distressed, oppressed and suppressed and desperate to know God's perfect will was for my life. Due to family obligations and my own sin (procrastinating) I was stagnate and felt unfulfilled. Since then God's grace/mercy has lifted me up out of the ashes, opened doors for me that I couldn't open on my own. HE's continuing to manifest HIS GREATNESS in my life as I hold on to HIS unchanging hand, BLESSED BE GOD & HALLELUJAH!!!
