Well, well, well…what do we have here? A blog post from Relle talking about beauty?! AND the BTB Experience?
Why yes, it is I, here virtually, to provide first hand storytelling about this event.
Let me start it off immediately by saying MY GOD. If I could wrap this article up in two words, that would be it. This event flowed so gracefully with the presence of the Holy Spirit in the room that the true definition of beauty came to life.
Now, you may be wondering what does BTB stand for with this event?
The BTB Experience stands for The Behind The Beauty Experience.
It was created by the beautiful, prophetic woman of God Tenisha Bibbs along with the powerhouse himself; Event Manager Quincy Griggs
Below, you can read what the experience was about, what we were to expect and its purpose:
“Behind The Beauty Experience is a two-day, life-changing event for women from all walks of life. This unforgettable event will be the perfect catalyst for helping women go further than skin deep and find life BEHIND THE BEAUTY! Women will embrace the true beauty that can only be found by refocusing, releasing, reevaluating, and most importantly, relaxing.”
Now, I don’t know about you, but after reading that statement, I FELT like I needed to be apart of it.
All of the guests in attendance were absolutely spoiled with goodies, paint n’ sip, massages, and especially with our speakers! Just check out three of the topics that were spoken about:
- “Beauty out of the Box”
- “Beauty Unscripted”
Oh, and get this. The topics weren’t even chosen by the speakers. They were given each topic and they brought the fire. Most often, speakers will create their own topic that goes along with the event, almost like a sermon. I believe with that game changer (not selecting their own topic), it pushed all of them to dig deeper into the message they were set to deliver and inclined them to have a raw touch with every word coming out of their mouth.
Look at it this way
If you think about it, speaking is a calling. You have to have a way of getting a message out to the audience where it grasps their attention. When Christ went speaking, he grasped the attention of all who were around him by the WORDS he spoke. Do you hear me? Most importantly, I believe Tenisha discerned who needed to say what and my God!
Ya’ll, I can’t make half of my blog posts up without reading through and processing what I want to say, but this event poured into my spirit so much.
On the first night, we were all getting acquainted with each other, stepping out of our shell and you know checking out our surroundings.
First of all, the decorations and set ups were gorgeous, secondly, the vendors were extremely professional and third, the catered food was phenomenal.
Now, as the event progressed we witnessed recognition of the Beauti Day recipients. These were women from different professions, but they all held a very high standard of beauty and what it meant to them.
So, in a nutshell, Friday was our icebreaker day. But then Saturday came. Ohhhhh my Lord. I was not expecting the message delivery of the speakers. When I say the women that spoke possessed the glory over them…JESUS!
We were blessed to hear from
Meet Our Beauty Day Ambassador: This beautiful woman has an amazing organization called One Hundred Percent Virgin…and it means exactly what it says. She teaches young women the importance of their purity. What an absolute perfect ambassador to coincide with beauty and purity. That is True Beauti.
Also, meet Ebony Porter-Ike. This beauty is the queen of Coinology and coaching. When you hear her name, there is power behind it.
” Ebony Porter-Ike of The epiMediaGroup, LLC was honored July 20, 2018 for her amazing accomplishments and value that she adds to women. Ebony is an Entrepreneur, Author, Speaker, Publicist & determined business woman focused on helping you become the person you desire to be.”
These speakers spoke with authority, sass, grit and class coupled with transparent moments.
I firmly believe when you speak and allow yourself to be transparent in what you are saying, there is a deeper level unlocked for those that are screaming for a way out.
Speaking of a way out, one of my favorite moments that occurred was when an attendee raised her hand and asked a specific question. She was fearful to start something that meant a lot to her and didn’t know how. Well, with her determination to get help, she was connected with a mentor who will be guiding her through the process. My goodness, when I looked at her, I could see the weight lifted off of her shoulders!
That is true networking through Christ.
God had his hand on this event from start to finish!
With that being said, you better run and sign up for next year because I only skimmed the surface! I wish I could put every single moment into words but it wouldn’t do it justice.
