hi. I’m Toni, but my real name is...
Antoinee Je’Taime. I know, I know my mom got a little creative. but, it means “Anthony, I love you”, & Anthony’s my dad, so, here we are. :).
I’m about healing, hope in Jesus & wholeness. people have been mad about the church not talking about mental & emotional health so as a Christian (with a pretty wild past #hellotwerkteam 😅) I owe it to myself to never stop. i grew up in a culture & a church that preached holiness but didn’t invite us into healing mind, body and soul. some of us have even been condemned for it. I will forever encourage people to heal & point them in the direction of resources, licensed professionals & healthy life practices.
I grew up in Houston TEXAS BABY 🤘🏽 in a blended family with 3 older brothers. when I was in the 3rd grade my mom had a massive stroke & it changed our lives forever. I helped my mom physically heal for years & because my dad worked alot & couldn’t be emotionally present, I grew up way too fast & looked for attention and numbed in all of the wrong places (like lil boys & a whole bunch of weed & alcohol).
I’ve walked through sexual & spiritual manipulation, drugs, drunk college nights, an eating disorder, a toxic marriage, abuse, divorce, insecurity, anxiety, counseling, remarriage, trauma groups & treatment, more counseling & the realization that even with all my brokenness God is still willing to work through me. IN YO FREAKIN FACE ENEMY
I travel lots as a host & preacher telling my story of brokenness & hope. Im the host of my very own podcast the #StillColoringPodcast & brand new author of #BraveEnoughtobeBroken !
I still think about doing wild things sometimes. I post about my littles, I talk about the hard things, I expose freely the depths of my own brokenness, I shout Jesus from the rooftops, embrace friendships without conversion or condition & fervently pray that hope will permeate the hearts of my followers through my words & way of life. grateful that you’re here. welcome to my page frands. hoping that we grow deep, honor difference, love real hard, heal well & lean into pain together.
you & your ratchedness, mistakes & wild thoughts are welcome here 🤸🏽♀️
