Faith Jenkins, In Words

In Words

Conversation with God

  1. I only want to date my husband



  1. A relationship is only as healthy as the two people in it.


Right Person

  1. Journey & Reward
    • It is not about finding the right person, it is becoming the right person
    • Because when you become the right person, you become better at making decisions and also your are faster at making those decisions in terms of what is right and wrong for you



  1. Use your job to finance your dreams



  1. Starting the new year off continuing my daily morning meditations. Negative thoughts are like birds – can’t stop them from flying over your head but you can stop them from nesting in your hair. Dwell on all that’s positive and possible and watch your life rise to meet the occasion



  1. Finished writing. Giving commencement speech to 600 soon-to-be grads. 👏🏾👏🏾. I can truly say I’m going with a renewed perspective. When I woke up this morning I opened two gifts – they were my eyes.
    Link & Link



  1. To those who have given up on love, I say trust life a little bit
  2. “People who want to marry potential while dating somebody’s reality. That’s what I see all the time,” she says. “They come in and say, ‘I love this person but I want them to change.’ You can’t change someone who doesn’t see an issue with their actions.”



  1. Relationship Hurts

      • Sometimes the hurt of staying is worse than the hurt of leaving
      • The hurt of staying lingers, but the hurt of leaving happens once and you give yourself an opportunity to get past it


Life Battles

  1. Closure does not come from other people. It comes from you, and you only.

Life Journey

Essence ( Link )

  1. Marriage
    • “I embraced the fact that I was living my journey and no one else’s,” she says. “There are almost eight billion people on this planet. We can’t all be doing the same thing at the same time.”
    • She adds, “I wasn’t going to let anyone make me feel like because I wasn’t married by a certain age that there was something wrong with me or that I was off on some timeline of life,” she says.
    • She was on her own timeline. During her 30s, living in NYC, Jenkins wasn’t concerned about marriage, but in her 40s, living in LA, as she picked up the pieces following a major breakup, she decided to figure out what she really wanted for herself at that stage of her life, and marriage was one of those things. Instead of rushing to make that happen, she chose to manifest it for herself.
    • “I sat down, I got clear, I wrote down what I wanted and decided that how I was going to think and how I was going to believe would change,” she says. “‘You will not hold onto a relationship when it’s time for it to end. You will let go. You will radically accept the end of this relationship’ — separating my feelings from the facts. ‘The fact is this door is being closed because obviously a bigger, better door is opening for me. I will accept that and that’s exactly what’s going to happen for me.’”“I said, ‘I will meet my husband,’” she adds, “and six months later, I met my husband.”
    • “People used to tell me my standards were too high and that was why I was still single. Then I met the man who exceeded them,” she says. “My marriage is even better than what I thought marriage would be. I didn’t settle for less than I really wanted. That’s why I wanted to share this book and all the principles in it because I don’t think it’s just something special and unique that happened to me. I went through all of these steps in the entire process and I’ve seen and heard all of these stories from other women and I thought, these are the keys to manifesting this love and this is what makes it work.”



  1. You gain credibility in bits, but lose it in buckets



  1. Neither of you is wrong for having your opinions, you are just wrong for each other

    • I think you have to have faith in people before they earn it. Otherwise, it’s not faith, right?
