"The LORD detests evil plans, but HE delights in pure words."
- Proverbs 15:26 -

THE LORD DETESTS evil plans...BUT HE DELIGHTS IN PURE WORDS. What do pure words have to do with evil plans? If you've been watching LET'S TALK with Teresa Ann or listening via my daughter and I's OH...Podcast, you'll remember that our tongues "tell on" our mindset (Proverbs 18:21). So if our mindset is set on the things of the earth; our conversations reveal that. It is no wonder Romans 12 states that we must renew our minds...not just with positive thoughts or "vibes" but with The Word of GOD which brings life giving, transforming speech from the place of ABUNDANT LIFE, WHO IS THE PERSON, JESUS!

When we get into the Word of GOD by the power of the Holy Spirit then the mind FINALLY gets to follow the Spirit. When we receive JESUS, The Holy Spirit within us knows TRUTH but it's our minds that must now line up with HIM.

When we know the truth of GOD, it's not from the intellect, instead it is by the WORD OF GOD. So with that, our tongues can by default speak life and that life giving power of the tongue is evidence of the fruit of life...and when our tongues speak unknowing death or negativity, it's evidence of that mindset as well.

So here's the GREAT NEWS:
When we catch ourselves speaking death or negatively about self, others or even a situation; remember that the beauty is in the "awareness' that we actually caught it.  We can rejoice that we are now aware of our mindset as we get to simply SHIFT it with THE MIND OF CHRIST; THE WAY HE THINKS, according to the Word of GOD.

All in all, when we catch ourselves planning our own ways or creating an agenda that is not according to GOD, then we GET TO rejoice that Holy Spirit alerted us to "see" it and it's our moment to turn to HIM and say, "Lord! Thank YOU that YOU rescued me from the old way of thinking and are reminding me to "set" my "mind" on YOU, hence living with YOUR "mindset"...the pressing moments are a reminder of WHO I get to press into and that is YOU LORD...so we can see everything with life giving perspective and we are able to give HOPE to others in the midst of hopelessness!

May 20, 2018...MOVING

Triumphant Victorious Reminders
Written by: Teresa Ann with Let's Talk with Teresa Ann

This life is an amazing adventure with GOD in learning more and more of WHO HE IS. I say this especially because since starting this blog back in March 2009, it is amazing to watch how you can't help but grow when you realize HIS goodness. I am in awe of GOD in how HE used this blog to teach and train me how to not forget about WHO HE IS and HIS faithfulness by showing me a powerful tool that HE has equipped each of us and that is with the tool of REMINDING AND REMEMBRANCE through the power of praising HIM.

In the tool of reminding myself of HIS greatness, I am in awe of looking back at all HE allowed me to write. It is amazing how I can clearly see the unfolding journey of how I used to think. You can see the unveiling and the falling off of religious ideas to a relationship with THIS ALMIGHTY GOD.  As I look back on my writings I see the blinders fall off and getting to see this falling more and more in love with WHO HE IS. It's a constant renewal, as we allow HIM, knowing that we will never arrive.

Actually to quote the famous evangelist, Reinhardt Bonke, "The more I learn about GOD, the more I realize I know nothing at all."

It is amazing to look in hind sight on how The Word of GOD continually transforms us by the renewal of my mind causing an awakening as revealed in Romans 12:1-2. This awakening has made me realize even more it's not about changing my behavior that will please GOD; instead it's about being intimate with HIM and by default my behavior automatically changes.

More than anything I have been learning that it's not based on "my doing" or paying penance to make up for all my wrongs; instead it's GOD'S marvelous grace that woos me to fall more in love with HIM. In this collision of intimacy and awe is where it is seen that I don't want to do the same things I used to. In that, HIS grace is revealed that empowers me to rise above selfish desires; because of WHO HE IS, not because of how disciplined I am. On the contrary, it is intimacy with HIM in which self control kicks in by default as it is produced by Holy Spirit through me.

With all of that said, I want to introduce you to where I am now.  You can now visit me online at www.LetsTalkStudio.com 

For some, you may remember back in 2010, I was introduced with an idea to have a talk show of some sort. Well in September 2016 after prayer and faith, I simply became more aware of GOD's grace and just did it with HIS encouragement! His encouragement was made manifest through some amazing women such as: Carrissa, Amanda, Christina and Terri! With their cheers, I started a YouTube channel, Let's Talk with Teresa Ann which has now led to last months launch of my new podcast.

It's hilarious to see how LET'S TALK with Teresa Ann has continually transformed as it is fun and hilarious to watch! It's definitely a glimpse; a parallel of our lives that are being transformed by Christ! It's amazing to realize that in Christ we are new creations and completely transformed, and yet we get to see the process to what is already accomplished in Christ Jesus.

To realize that when I started the show, I started with what I had, and that was a step ladder and a desk lamp as my lighting and tripod. Since then to see how it has unfolded since the beginning is amazing to watch! Believing in GOD and HIS grace to be consistent has been fun. With the help of my branding ambassador Celina, HE has shown me the power of excellence. It's not excellence in what we think as some people's level of excellence is based on what they have in front of them. My excellence was giving everything I had to GOD, no matter how small it seemed. It was truly about giving my best and HIM showing me how HE does the rest. I love how HE showed me that if I waited until "I have all my ducks in a row" then this post wouldn't be written. GOD showed me the trap of comparison and to just give HIM what I had to give and as I give my best HE truly does the rest!

You may be asking, "What's the purpose of Let's Talk with Teresa Ann"? So here is the mission, it is about "flipping the script" in our lives by HIS transforming power in allowing GOD'S WORD to renew our minds. In other words, getting heavenly perspective to replace our own. The show itself is about bold inspiration, revealing GOD's goodness through my interviews/conversations with different women revealing their extraordinary GOD stories, testifying of HIS faithfulness. I have two shows a week. Every Saturday and Monday I post an interview or I share a nugget of something Holy Spirit has shared with me and it's either made into an episode or highlighted on my Motivational Monday.

I want to and must thank each of you for being such an incredible encouragement by being on this journey with me. I continually enjoy your feedback, so please feel free to do so as my husband, daughter, mom and dad, Patricia Sawyer, Poppa C.O., J.J. McKearnen and Celina Baginski have been great encouragers through this process. You have been a blessing to me and I also want to thank you for taking the time to read all the way to this point. Triumphant Victorious Reminders as a blog will remain and I will now be posting these reminders on Let's Talk.

This entry is to update you on where I am today...if you choose to follow me on this journey, I'd love to invite you to come and visit by clicking here. If you are on my current mailing list, you may not be able to click on that, so here's the direct link by copying and pasting in your browser: www.LetsTalkStudio.com

February 11, 2018 | GLORIOUS AND STRONG!

Triumphant Victorious Reminders

Wow! Our GOD is glorious and strong! Think on that...He doesn't just have glory and strength...HE IS!

In this reminder, HE IS Refuge; Safety; Protector; and Security and we could go on for eternity as there is no one like HIM...NO ONE! Even when circumstances don't reveal HIM as Refuge, Safety, Protector or Security...HE IS no matter what.

That alone makes me "violently" confident as this stirs this unique, uncommonly supernatural, Kingdom of GOD "instinct" that comes alive within us with RESURRECTION POWER as o remind us that our HOPE IS IN HIM!

HE IS MATCHLESS IN STRENGTH; even the demons believe in HIM and they tremble (James 2:19).

Crazy! Just imagine this...GOD is what HE PROVIDES. He doesn't just give LOVE, HE IS LOVE. HE doesn't just give peace, HE IS PEACE. HE doesn't just give GRACE, HE IS GRACE.

DANG! That alone leads us to the vanishing points in thought to have the ability to comprehend.

Lord! You are what YOU provide and before any of us said "Yes" to YOU, YOU SAID, "YES" to us first!

What we can't possibly comprehend we can still receive with such grateful awe!

We get to Triumphantly Victoriously be reminded that as a "son you flourish like a well nurtured plant and as a daughter your rightful place is to be as a graceful pillar carved to beautify a palace" (Psalm 144:12)...in other words:


Have a Triumphant Victorious Day,

Teresa who happens to be a mother, but is not "Mother Teresa"

January 24th, 2018 | Partnering with The Producer

Triumphant Victorious Reminders

It is another GOD day and you are proof of that. You are a sign, a wonder and a miracle. We are being cheered for to reveal GOD, not in and of ourselves, but by simply allowing Holy Spirit to produce what only He can.

(Galatians 5:22-23) that reveals
joy in the midst of frustration;
peace in the midst of conflict;
patience in the midst of impending blow ups; gentleness in the midst of wanting to tear someone's hair out (Or worse);
goodness in the midst of wanting to get revenge; faith in the midst of doubters;
meekness in the midst of pride's voice beckoning us to fold and self control so that we can reveal HIM when we want to reveal ourselves. For God doesn't only produce these beautiful gifts; but get this...HE IS!

He is the gift to be revealed through us and in us and over us to reveal HIM and HIS blessings in the midst of curses that so quickly grip people's hearts with fear. I know all too well as everyday my "self" attempts to speak and reason why it's okay not to reveal HIM. We cannot step over the promises to pick up our measly rights. I get to work out my salvation daily with fear and trembling - when at times I want to turn from my Savior and do what I desire. You are HIS workmanship created in The Anointed One. You are anointed to do great exploits! Whether it's to honor your parents you live with, or loving your spouse and children you get to do life with or embracing a new season of adventure as your children leave home and now you pray they stay under the wings of their Heavenly Father.

Remember, whatever the season, we get to reveal HIM.

Blessed beyond measure,

Teresa Ann
