The Shy Girl’s Guide

Do you desire more confidence? Are you looking for effective, straightforward advice on how to live your life full of confidence? Well, look no further!

Welcome to “The Shy Girl’s Guide”! This is designed to help women of all ages and stages grow and maintain self-confidence.

What is self-confidence? It’s the trust in one’s own abilities and qualities. As women, especially women of color, it’s vital that we learn to be more aware of the wonderful qualities that God has placed within us.

Along this journey of becoming more confident in ourselves, I want us to be aware that this is not going to be an easy journey. It’s going to take faith, honesty, daily practice, and getting away from your comfort zone.

Let’s begin this journey together!


The Shy Girl’s Guide: Designed for young girls and women who desire to attain more self-confidence and live a life full of purpose.

Keep this piece of Scripture in mind as we take this journey together:

Deuteronomy 31:6

“Speak Encouraging Words Over Yourself And Your Life”

“Get Active!”

“Smile!”

“Wear clothes that are comfortable and make you feel confident!”

“Embrace your natural curls and coils!”

“Learn something new every single day! Also, teach others what you’ve learned!”

“Journal your way through your process of gaining and maintaining confidence.”

The 7-Day Confidence-Building Journaling Challenge is designed to help you gain a better sense of who you are and what you desire out of yourself and your life.

During the next seven days, I would like for you to take to time to answer the journaling prompts with as much honesty and transparency as possible. No worries, though! No one is going to see what you write, unless you want them to.

Happy Journaling!

An Encouraging Message For All Of You Seeking More Self-Confidence:

“The shell must break before the bird can fly.” – Tennyson.

After reading that quote, the first thing that came to my mind was, “if you want to grow and accomplish the goals you’ve set for yourself, you’re going to have to break that shell of shyness and make it happen!” Do you want to own a business? Do you dream of climbing the corporate ladder? Are you interested in a job promotion that would put you in better financial standing? 

Dear shy girl, you’re going to have to break out of that timid nature and go for it! Yes, it’s scary to want and go for bigger and better things; but, that’s the point! Growth should shake you up a bit. Challenge yourself by taking the necessary steps to blossom into the successful woman you know you can be. I believe in you!
