Have you ever felt as though you were called to complete a certain mission but it seemed as though none of your friends and/or family believed that your mission was possible to complete? Or, if completed it wouldn’t actually succeed. It can be a hard pill to swallow and will make you question if what you’re doing is actually from God, or if you’re conjuring up an idea. You begin to allow their doubt to cloud your mind and before you know it you’ve either decided to give up on the idea partially, or worst, not even starting it.
My first post of 2017 stated that this is the year of grace, and that God can and will answer our prayers and complete the promises that He has given us over our lives…but this will come to those who BELIEVE! This means that every promise God gives you should not be shared with everyone. It may also mean that you close your ears to those who want to speak negative against the purpose that God has placed in your life. As you grow in your relationship with God and go to higher levels in your walk, every person will not be able to come with you. There will be people that God will place in your life for a season, but their purpose is not to go past that allotted time. If there is one thing that I have learned in my journey with Christ is to never try to force someone to stay in your life longer than their intended time. You will know when their time has ended, and if you try to make it longer you will slow down your own personal walk with Christ.
Be obedient to where God is telling you to go, what he is asking you to do and who he is asking you to do it with. It will save you from encountering unnecessary commentary and will keep moving you towards the purpose that God has given you! 🙂

We at Chrissy Joy Style pride ourselves in spreading love and making sure that women around the world know that they are beautiful, powerful and have a purpose inside of them that no one can ever take away. I’m sure we are not the only blog, company and/or business that feels this way, which is why we would like to highlight and lock arms with other businesses that have the same motto in an effort to make a larger impact in spreading love to everyone! 🙂
Today, I would like to highlight the curvy-girl catered jeanswear line “Slink Jeans”! The company was started by husband & wife Albert & Estelle Dahan with a purpose to encourage women while providing comfortable and stylish jeans. They started a Body Positive revolution in the womenswear industry by promoting their brand using everyday woman as opposed to plus-sized models.The word “SLINK” is an acronym for sexy, loveable, intelligent, noticeable, and kind. All of which describes the “Slink Woman” regardless of size, color or background. They even place body positive messaging on their jeans! The interior waistband of the jeans have “curvy” embroidered inside of them, while the interior jean pockets are printed with “love your body”! <3
“In my opinion, confidence in yourself makes you beautiful; when a woman feels beautiful, then everyone else sees her as beautful”, says Albert Dahan. Slink Jeans have made it their mission to ensure that every woman that wears their jeans feel beautiful. Which is why they created a “Call to Action! It’s your time to shine! You are beautiful!”.
“We have curvy, intelligent women that are shining so bright the shadows have diminished.” 🙂
Wanna join the revolution and grab a pair of jeans filled with love?! Head over to Slink Jeans now! (Their jeans sizes range from 10-24 and jackets/tops from L-3XL)
Make sure to tell ’em Chrissy Joy sent you! 🙂

Have you ever realized how much of a “Debby Downer” doubt can be? It reminds me of a person who sees that you’re happy & enjoying life, so they make it their mission to be be rude or go out of their way to try mess up your day and piss you off. It’s like a leech that has nothing to do but grab onto your mind and make sure that it is never at peace, and that your view of life and yourself is distorted and unclear. Doubt is a major roadblock in moving forward, but the only way to remove it is to identify the cause….Fear.
Fear is the seed of doubt, the foundation of anxiety and the fuel of worry. It puts your journey on a standstill and doesn’t allow your mind to continue to grow. It also leaves you with a horrible feeling of helplessness. But there is a way to overcome fear and send it back to the hole it came from…Faith! Where there is faith, fear has to leave. There is no way that fear can operate in a person who is filled with faith and trusting in Gods will for their life. It’s just not possible!
Faith commands breakthroughs and miracles. It opens doors and restores what was broken. Most importantly, it moves you forward and removes ALL doubt. 🙂

-Job 22:28 NKJV
December is here! Can you seriously believe that we are in the final month of 2016?! Like whattttt?!!! This year has flown by and it’s now time to start planning for 2017!
Many people wait until January first to start making or implementing their new resolutions. However, here at the Chrissy Joy Style headquarters I have began to make my December Declaration of things that I believe are going to come to past starting NOW, and continue into the new year! I believe that making goals can sometimes cause unnecessary stress and feelings of worry and doubt. These things are all stemmed from fear, and in order to eliminate fear we have to exercise the power and authority that God has given us! How do we do that?…DECLARE TRIUMPH!! When we believe and declare the things that we are believing God for, He will make a way for those things that are within His will to come to pass! 🙂
I’ve decided to share a few of my declarations of victory for the new year with you today in hopes of inspiring you to get your victories written down so that you can start working towards them daily!
1. I declare that today is the beginning of my winning season full of miracles and breakthroughs!
2. I declare debt freedom (specifically student loans)!
3. I declare that I will travel the world spreading love and starting ministries!
These are just a few of mine, what are yours? Declare them now in the comments and let’s walk into our victory together! 🙂

I’m a huge advocate of supporting small businesses, and I also love to hear stories of how people got started in following their passion. It inspires me and gives me a little nudge to keep going with my business! So when the company “Carved” asked me to choose one of their beautiful wooden phone cases to use for my IPhone I was super excited! 🙂
Carved makes and sells one-of-kind wood cell phone cases for all types of phones including IPhone, Samsung Galaxy and Google Nexus. The company was started five years ago by John and Grant when they met for lunch to share ideas of possibly starting a business. John wanted to make wood cases for IPhones but didn’t have any experience manufacturing. Grant was an expert in manufacturing and immediately started working on the first prototype that was later perfected and jumpstarted their company. It’s crazy how God brings the missing pieces in our lives to complete the puzzle of our passion! 🙂
I chose the “New Zealand Paua Shell Case” because it’s made out of a real New Zealand Paua shell. My dream is to travel the world, so I love to collect different pictures and articles of places until I can experience them all in real-life….I now have my small piece of New Zealand! 🙂
Overall, I love the case and its durability without being bulky! I am on my phone a lot so my ideal case is soft, light and pretty…all of which my new case entails! I highly recommend “Carved” for anyone who needs a durable case but does not want to compromise the beauty of their phone. The best part is that each case comes complete with the signatures of the “Carved” team on the inside! It’s a beautiful reminder that teamwork really does make the dream work! 🙂
Purchase your our case today on Carved ! Tell ’em Chrissy Joy sent you! 🙂
