ND: Bulimia for sure. When I first gave my life to Christ this wasn’t something I was instantly delivered from. I’ve had nights where I would just finish throwing up, on my knees in front of the toilet, crying, asking God to heal me and deliverance from this disorder. I had gotten to a point where I settled and thought this is just going to be the thorn in my side like Paul for the rest of my life. But I came across a book by Lisa Bevere called “You are not what you weigh” and I really began to see I was letting my weight be a weight. I realized Bulimia was a deeply engraved disorder in my mind that could be changed, and I really needed to allow GOD to reorder me. So I embarked on an adventurous journey of recovery. I sought GOD step by step through it all to really help me and makeover my mind. Praying over my food and working out has taken on a whole new meaning for me.
WM: What is a Bible verse that gets you through the really tough times?
ND: Philippians 1:21 – For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
For me this scripture makes me fearless, gets me out my feelings, reminds me why I’m here and adjusts my focus. Nothing that opposes me can defeat me. NO sickness, obstacle, enemy, NOTHING. This scripture reminds me that earth is not my home and to live here is to truly LIVE for Christ and to bring Him glory. I don’t live here for a husband, a career, a certain body type, situation, or the American dream. BUT it’s to live for GOD! And when I pass away in well doing, I’ll be united with my God in His Glory that I’m an heir of.
WM: What do you hope to accomplish with your ministry, “His Daughter?”
ND: We live in a society that places high value on external appearance rather than internal character. I hope to change that by awakening GODs called and chosen daughters. I want to see women of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds all over the world come to know and love Christ.
It’s time for the fun questions!
WM: What is a talent you have that not many know about?
ND: I use to be a cheerleader…LOL! I can flip flop, toe touch, and do an eight count like nobody’s business.
WM: If you could meet three people (dead or living) who would you choose and why?
ND: First of all. I would love to have a little one on one, heart to heart convo with my girl EVE. The questions I have for her are endless. She was the first woman on earth. She was the first to do pretty much everything we women do now. She’s the only woman ever to experience life on both ends of sin. Before and after the fall. I would love to just sit next to her and listen to what life was like for her in detail.
Second, is Paul, I mean he was one of the greatest missionaries of all time, look up the word endurance in the dictionary and Paul’s name should be there.
Third, I would say is Billy Graham. I recently went to the library he has in Charlotte, NC andit changed my life. I admire the work he did for God in such a gigantic way. He seemed so devoted to God and the Great Commission. He was loaded with the word and shot scripture and truth out at the enemy like a machine gun!
And didn’t mention Jesus in my three because we kick it every day!
WM: Fiction or nonfiction (books and movies)?
ND: If you would’ve asked me in my B.C. days I totally would’ve answered fiction! But now I’m a total non-fiction nerd. I love learning about our history and cold hard facts about creation and life. All it really does is make me fall more in LOVE with GOD. How intentional He was and still is in EVERY intricate detail of our lives. It’s mind blowing and I can’t get enough of it!
WM: Coffee, tea or soda?
ND: I’ve recently have been delivert! – yes I said that with a “t!” LOL. “Delivert” from Coca Cola! The struggle was real. But the addiction has now segued to coffee. Literally EVERY morning. I never imagined myself being one of those people spending almost five dollars a day on a cup of coffee. Ya’ll pray for ya girl.
WM: Song you are currently obsessed with?
ND: Ok this is so weird but I’m obsessed with classical music right now. We will see how long this little obsession lasts, but there’s this song called Marianelli: Darcy’s letter by Dario Marianelli. If you write or study a lot, put in your earphones and just press play. You’ll understand why I love it. That song puts me in the zone every time. Also, I love me some Jesus so you know I still love me a good worship song! “When I Lost My Heart to You” by Hillsong United is on repeat right now.
WM: Favorite quote?
ND: God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him. – John Piper *drops mic*
WM: If you were to cast someone to play you in a movie, who would you cast?
ND: Ehhhh…That is a really hard question…hmm. If I had to choose I guess I would say Zendaya from the Disney channel? I don’t know why but she keeps popping in my head Lol. From the outside she seems to carry a certain level of integrity with all of her work. She has a sense of style and she seems like a goofball like myself.
