Teresa Renee-Hunt 


"A simple, classy, contemporary look with a good shoe and a pop of Sonita’s jewelry"!

 

Hi Jewels! I am so excited about this months feature! She is actually one of my clients!  A part of my job is collaborating with my clients regarding their look for an event, photo shoot, etc....That means,  I may not provide the clothing at every styling session, but the client and I will collaborate to enhance the look. This is what I do with the beautiful Teresa Renee Hunt. We come together and literally brainstorm on how we can make the look pop on camera, speaking engagement or writing seminar. I often tell her she is one of my favorites clients. She comes ready to work. She has idea/concept, I have the jewelry/clothing piece and we go from there! She is always open to change and critique. Her beautiful, kind spirit is contagious! When I meet with Teresa, I have, what I call, Mary and Elizabeth moments. When two women full of purpose and destiny come together, your spirit leaps! When you work with a woman who gets you and understands the way you work, its a blessing.  Teresa and I work extremely well together, and it shows when the final look is revealed! It is my extreme pleasure to present Teresa Renee-Hunt.

What inspired you to write about your experiences in “Positioned To Be Found”?

I was inspired to write about my experiences of heartbreak, low self-esteem, rape, dead end relationships and the path to healing & marital happiness, because I wanted to help women prepare for what they are praying to God about.

 

Positioned to Be Found: How to Prepare Yourself for Marriage Right Now, focuses on preparing women for marriage before they have a ring. In the book, I empower and equip women to overcome the pain and habits of their past and make wise dating decisions, so they can be found a woman who is mentally ready, spiritually whole, and emotionally free.

 

The truth is, our past impacts our present and our future. Because our lives become intertwined with our spouse before we marry, it’s essential that we build ourselves up internally, so we are truly able to become one with our spouses and our marriages can have longevity. I know what it’s like to carry emotional baggage, and I’m so glad I began to prepare myself for marriage by doing the uncomfortable, yet necessary work of unpacking those bags. I wrote my book because I wanted to help women prepare themselves for marriage, so when they are found by the one God has for them, they can enjoy their marriage to the full, from day one!

 

 

As I’ve published my story, my life is literally an “open book”. Quite naturally, I had to push past FEAR in order to start and finish my book. Initially, I was afraid of what other people would say or think of me once they knew more of my personal life, which includes a happily-ever-after, but also my pain and mistakes before I said “I Do”. I overcame this obstacle by choosing to bind fear and replace it with faith. Instead of believing that people would judge me or view me differently, I believed that somehow, and some way, God was going to use my pain for His purpose and that my story would indeed transform others! In addition, as I was preparing to write the first chapter of my book, which is about healing, I had to ensure I was indeed healed from the emotional baggage I was carrying. Before I fully launched into the writing process, I connected with a Christian counselor so I could indeed write and tell my story from a place of victory and not as a victim! I highly recommend Christian counseling; therapy+ Jesus! #OvercomeAndWin

You also have a publishing company called “Truth2RenewHearts Publishing”, can you tell our readers the importance of writing and getting their stories published?

We all have a story. We go through life’s tests, trials, and we experience many triumphs. Even the situations the enemy meant for evil in our lives, God turns them around for our good, and for His glory. When we understand that what we go through in life has a greater purpose beyond us, then we also understand that our stories, when partnered with God’s truth, have the power to save and transform lives! By sharing our story, we can save others from making the same mistakes we’ve made. By sharing our story, we can save people time and heartache. By sharing our story, we equip, empower, teach, and expand our reach- making an even greater impact in the lives of others!

 

How do you balance being a wife, mother, minister and entrepreneur?

Wheww! This is a loaded question. The act of balancing is still a work in progress for me. I’m only able to ‘balance’ because I have an amazing support system, along with a calendar, and newly created personal boundaries. Diving into God’s word is the foundation of my balance. Without spending time in His presence, I am no good to anyone and I’m unable to fulfill all of those roles effectively. As I strive to prioritize my time with Him and live according to the Bible, balance is within my reach on a more consistent basis.

 

 

How would you describe your style?

Great question! I’m not sure; this is why I need you and I reach out to you before my photo shoots and events! 😊 LOL. I’ve always been on the more conservative side, but over the past few years, I’ve loosened up a bit. My husband says I am the ultimate ‘girlie girl’- so hey, I’ll take it! I can say this- I love a simple, classy, contemporary look with a good shoe and a pop of Sonita’s jewelry!

 

What has been the highlight of your career so far?

There are so many highlights, but I’ll choose one! I experience a highlight each time a cohort of students graduate Birth Your Book™ Bootcamp, my signature coaching program in which students write their books in 60 days!

 

What is your favorite quote?

My favorite quote is straight from my favorite book: “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me”- Psalm 51:10
