Have you ever come across an advertisement or sponsorship that caught your attention? Well, if you have. Did you know who was behind the ad or sponsorship? Brand Influencers are one of the biggest advertisers in our society today. Brand Influencing is on the rise among millennials. Many people believe brand influencing is all about making money, but it requires a lot more—ethics, personal qualities, communication skills, branding skills, etc. Brand Influencers are known for their values; I have often heard many influencers say that to advertise a brand, it has to line up with my brand, meaning that they have a brand to maintain and they cannot just advertise for every single brand that comes their way. How does this relate to the mission? 




According to the Cambridge Dictionary, a mission is "an important jobespecially a military one, that someone is sent somewhere to do or any work that someone believes they must do." The mission of the Lavender Woman is "Equipping young women to impact lives for Christ." Do you have a mission for yourself? For example, a person's mission could be living with empathy and compassion to inspire lives and draw many to Christ. Two top symbols of a Lavender are devotion and caution. Many young people live without a mission. Our mission is our lifestyle. Devotion to live to fulfill our mission is a quality many young females need to develop as they grow older. Caution comes along with being intentional about living our mission daily.

Matthew 5:16 says, "In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." The mission is not Purpose, and Purpose is not the mission. Mission and Purpose can often be intertwined. Purpose is what you are called to do; mission is how you carry yourself daily and choose to live your life. The mission is how you treat people daily. Your mission is formed and developed by you; it is how you choose to live your life and how that inspires others. There are different levels of mission. You have probably read an organization's mission statement before; for example, the mission of the Ibidunni Ighodalo Foundation is "to raise awareness about infertility and its associated challenges. To stop the stigmatization of couples dealing with infertility and to provide the spiritual, financial, and psychological support they require". This foundation has done an excellent job fulfilling its mission. 




The process of creating a mission requires deep thinking. What are your best qualities? What do you care deeply about? Creating a mission does not mean starting an organization or business. Your mission could be as simple as showing love to help the poor and unprivileged daily. Jesus's mission on the earth was to save humanity and reunite humans with God. Our everyday life is beyond ourselves. God created us to live for others just as he does. God created the world and everything in it, yet he chose to create us. He helps, loves, corrects, and provides for us. Life is about living for others. Our society has done a fair job of promoting ideas, beliefs, and structures that we are supposed to live for ourselves alone. We see it on social media, TV shows, movies, films, etc. But the reason for our existence is to help others. Your mission should reflect you; a stranger should be able to identify your mission without knowing you. Mission is cultivated over time; take your time creating it because it has to be the same daily and evolve. Your mission must be authentic; it must reflect who you indeed are. As Lavender Women in Christ, our mission should and must align with our values. Like brand influencers have standards for brands, we must also develop standards for ourselves through our mission. I want to challenge and encourage you to establish standards for yourself, live with a mission, and impact lives through your mission. Your mission is yours; own it. 




Thank you so much for reading; God Bless You Greatly. Remember to like, comment, share, and subscribe. If you are reading and do not believe in God, I encourage you to have an open heart and mind and give God a chance to prove himself to you. Please say this prayer: "Heavenly Father, I am a sinner and come to you to ask you to forgive me of my terrible sins. Thank you for dying for my sins and bearing the shame on that Cross so I may have eternal life. Today, I confess with my mouth that I have sinned against you, and believe with my whole heart that Jesus is Lord, and God raised Him from the dead on the third day. He is seated on the Heavenly throne and intercedes on my behalf. I give you my heart, soul, and life and pray that I will obey thy Word. In the precious name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen." If you just said that prayer, welcome to the family of believers. Congratulations!! Heaven rejoiced; God is so glad and happy to have you in his family. I will be praying for you and your walk with God. Feel free to contact me on the next steps in this new chapter in your life.
