That’s what I call lovely ladies who are unbreakable, invincible, and unconquerable through Christ. That’s you right?
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phillipians 4:13
ALL THINGS. NOT SOME. NOT ONE OR TWO…ALL.
Allow me to introduce myself…
I’m Mandi Buckner, The Gem Teacher. If you’re a Christian woman ready to walk in your divine purpose, and could use some inspiration and encouragement, this page is for you. Here you will find the spark you need to begin unearthing the gem you truly are, embracing your purpose, and walking boldly into your best blessed life.
The walk of the virtuous woman is not for the faint of heart. While it’s worth every second, it is full of ups, downs, twists, and turns. It helps to have someone you can relate to, that can help guide you, and help you see yourself as God sees you. That’s why I’m here.
I’m here to coach you. Not by bashing or beating you up, but by uplifting and encouraging you through honesty, transparency, and sharing strategies for blessed living through the Word of God.
If you’re along for the ride, here are some terms you should know:
The Gem Teacher – Me. Your coach in finding the intersection of passion and purity to live your best, blessed life as the diamond God created you to be.
Diamond – You. You were created to adorn the earth with God’s glory. You are precious in His sight, chosen, beautiful, and unbreakable.
Life Gems – Quotes, scriptures, and tips to help you in specific areas to live a prosperous life.
Brilliance – What makes you shine! Your experiences, your unique gifts, your personality. The things that make you, YOU.
Fire – Passion and intensity
Sparkle – What happens when fire meets brilliance!
Haute Living – An elevated, refined, high class way of life. Holy. I’ll explain…
Holy Hauteness – Anything pertaining to Haute Living, served here on the regular with a healthy dose of Jesus Juice.
Jesus Juice – NOT. WINE. I repeat. NOT. WINE. I needed to make that clear because “let not then your good be evil spoken of:” (Romans 14:16) On this site, and on anything associated with this site, ‘Jesus Juice’ is in reference to relationship with Jesus. ‘Jesus Juice’ may be a song, a scripture, a church service, a devotional… It’s a boost of spiritual energy that I get and need to maintain my relationship with Him. If you would like some of that good ‘ol juice to sip with me get a weekly dose in your email by clicking HERE.
Blessed Milkshake – A beautiful, blended family!
K.I.S.S. – Knowledge + Intimacy + Sanctity + Spice! Our formula for a marriage that rocks! We challenge married couples to make “pillow talk” a priority and make a commitment K.I.S.S.!
What this site is not…
1. A replacement for your pastor and/or church home. It is my prayer that you have or find a bible based church and get connected. So you can be edified regularly, learn more about God and His Word, and sow your gifts locally to make a difference where you are.
2. A place to put down, bash, or contend with other religions. I believe in Jesus, and my personal views and writings on this site reflect that.
3. A “One Size Fits All” site. Even as Christian women, we all have different walks, strengths, and struggles. Everything won’t be for everybody. I pray you will take take what’s for you in love, and leave what’s not for someone else.
