Three decades ago, my sixteen-year-old mom was pregnant with me. She was in high school and about two years away from graduation. She was presented with an option – choosing me and the uncertain road ahead or not. She chose me.
This decision forever changed her life. She was young, learning to be a mom, and what it meant to live on her own. She was also taking this journey as a single mom as my father was incarcerated during my primary years.
I do know that along the journey my mom had help and needed it. She welcomed it for my sake and hers. Sometimes help came from family and other times from complete strangers, but we were not alone.
To this day, I can vividly remember growing up on W 23rd Street in Jacksonville, Florida in a duplex in the urban core of the City. It was not the safest neighborhood nor the prettiest, yet it was my home for several years. I remember the good times and the not so good times, yet as I look back over my life and I am grateful for each person that helped my mom provide, nurture, and care for me.
The Mother-to-be Celebration idea was birthed over six year ago while I was living in Florida. I knew I wanted to help other moms who found themselves in similar situations to my mom – they needed help to raise and care for their baby. I realized that some expecting moms may not have as much family support as she did and may need more. Or, they may need some encouragement and wisdom to help them break generational curses of poverty, worry, low self-esteem, etc. Or, they may need an afternoon of being showered with love from family and friends to be reminded that they do have support on this journey, despite the uncertain road ahead.
At this point in my current journey, I do not know what it means to be pregnant or to be faced with a decision of life or to be faced with fears and worries because I am unsure of how I will care for my child, BUT I do what it means to be the little blessing that changes a young mom’s life forever. I do know what it means to have a litany of statistics tagged to you because of your zip code, mom’s martial status, father’s criminal history, and the color of your skin. I also know what it means to crush each of those statistics. And, because of my journey I want to help other women like my mom raise barrier-breaking children like my mom did.
This summer, Life with Chelsi, my newly formed women-focused organization, is hosting its inaugural event, the Mother-to-be Celebration. The Celebration will be hosted in Richmond, Virginia. It will be a baby shower filled with love, games, food, and gifts.
As you may now understand, this event is dear to my heart because I know my journey would have been different without the help of a community of people to be resources from my beginning to where I am now. This event is just the first of many that will serve women and their families who may need a little extra help, whether resources, wisdom, or just community.
Life is not meant to be lived alone or focused solely on ourselves!
Will you join us in making this event impactful for the women we will bless?
Here are 5 ways you can support us:
Thank you in advance for being a part of our inaugural event!

Happy Day After Christmas!!! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends. I know some of you were struggling with the loss of someone or something that had significant importance to you. I have been praying for you and will continue praying for you.
Life with Chelsi (LWC) started earlier this year as a podcast. Then, it transitioned into this website with video devotionals. NOW.......
we are growing and becoming a non-profit organization that will host events and programs for women across the country. The BEST part about our expansion and growth is that is for Jesus and because of Him! Please keep us in prayer as we finalize the 501c3 paperwork. And, consider being a ministry partner!!
For the month of January, we will do a 31-day Proverbs Challenge called "Let's Get Wise." We will read one proverb a day, all with the purpose of starting 2018 with wisdom!! Will you join me? Stay tuned to Instagram and Facebook for details on this challenge.
Next Spring, LWC will host its FIRST event in Richmond, Virginia, for single moms. I cannot wait to share additional details in the next few weeks. And, share why single moms have a special place in my heart. Stay tuned for the event announcement and ways you can support us no matter where you are. By the way, many, many thanks to all who reached out to be a part of the event planning team!
As of last Wednesday, I have confirmed my FIRST Board Member for the organization. She is pretty awesome and will be announced very soon!!
Is not this all amazing??
Well, there is more...
Next year, "Chats with Chelsi" will launch. Chats with Chelsi is my platform to interview amazing women of God who have weathered storms and seen the faithfulness of God in various areas of their lives. Some women are here in Richmond and will join me for a live interview from my prayer room and other women across the country they will join for a live interview virtually. No matter the location, I know the interviews will be a blessing to your life! If you want to nominate a woman to be interviewed, email me at LifewithChelsi@gmail.com with a few things about their faith journey.
Over the course of the last few months, I have begun a deep dive into commonly misused and misunderstood scriptures. And, there are quite a few! Starting next year there will be a new LWC video segment called "True Meaning." These live videos will teach you the true meaning of scriptures you often hear quoted and misused and misunderstood even more. I truly believe knowledge is power - including biblical knowledge.
Whew.... I am STOKED for all that is God doing through this ministry. I am grateful for the people He has connected me with and the people He is allowing me to reach and minister to on a daily basis. I cannot imagine what will come in 2018 with additional avenues to give and more women on board to carry forth LWC's mission.
To help you stay up-to-date on all this awesomeness, you can check out our new Events Calendar. It will provide all LWC events!
I have one final ask -- please keep me and members of the LWC organization in prayer. We have been reaching women and I pray more women are touched, educated, and equip to live out the Word of God.
Love y'all! Praying for y'all!
As always, join me for the weekly inspirational messages on Mondays at 7:30AM EST.
Be sure you are following LWC on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
Raise your hand if you have ever sat at your work desk and wondered, “Why am I here?”... Or, “God, why do I need to take this class?”... “Why did I ever date him?”… “Why am I still driving this beat up car?"… I raised both of my hands.
Growing up there seemed to be this invisible ceiling that I was trying to reach and break through. The pressure of the unsaid responsibility to break down the invisible ceiling led me down the road of trying super, super hard to be perfect. Not because I thought I had it together but because I thought I needed to have it together to reach and break the invisible ceiling. (I will go in more depth in another blog about perfectionism struggle.) I thought breaking through the invisible ceiling would mean that I had arrived. That I was worthy of everything I wanted.
You see, this invisible ceiling was one that meant I was accomplished or in today’s terminology, “slaying dragons.” (I hope that is current enough LOL!!)
For way too long, I allowed this invisible ceiling to control my life. I worked hard to prove my worth. I wanted the best jobs to prove my worth. I wanted to be involved with all the right organizations and groups to prove my worth. I wanted a perfect wedding and marriage to prove my worth. I wanted anything that would prove I was at least enough.
As I type this blog for you, I am reminded of a conversation I had with a dear friend who shared understanding of similar pressures. The conversation went to another level as we are both women, black, and attorneys. Whew. We have experienced being the only woman and/or minority in a room. We have experienced the conversations of what type of job we needed to be worth it. We had heard all the criteria about the man we should marry and how much money that man should make. We are also both Christians who knew that we had to break through the invisible ceiling to live a life of true freedom in Christ. And, we knew the struggle was real and one we would have to fight mentally everyday.
The pressure is real. This invisible ceiling is real. This lie of worth in what we do, who we date, what degree we have, is real.
This lie of a ceiling has pushed me WAY TOO OFTEN to a place of discontentment (watch last week’s devotional on Facebook for my message on Biblical contentment).
You see the invisible ceiling also moves. It moves based on how I am feeling, what I see on TV, what I see on social media, what Forbes says is the best way to become a millionaire before you’re thirty, how some entrepreneur is telling me I can make $50k a month, and even sometimes because of the voices of those who I trust.
The invisible ceiling is just that powerful. BUT only because if you are like me, you have struggled with identity.
And, let’s press pause… Someone will think, “How can you struggle with identity if you know Jesus?” They may go as far as to say, “How can you preach Jesus and not know that He created you with purpose?” These are all valid questions! They really are! Yet, to the person with these questions, I remind you that only one PERFECT man walked this Earth and His name is Jesus. I remind you that we live in a fallen world and each of us will struggle with sin and it will look differently. I also want to remind you that before we came to Christ, we were broken individuals with no certainty in our identity.
Yes, I love Jesus with all I am and I have struggled with my identity and worth. I have wondered if I missed God when I accepted a certain position. I wondered if I missed God when I told a national news outlet that I could not come on and give commentary. I wondered if I missed God when I have spent more time on ministry related things than building my consulting business. I wondered if I missed God when I decide to take care of me and not be a part of every organization that invited me to their meetings.
I wondered if I was enough.
And, I wondered because I am not where I thought I should be at this time in my life. Raise your hand(s) if you feel this way.
You better believe that the Lord has been dealing with my heart. He has reminded me that He knew me before I formed in my mother’s womb (Jeremiah 1:5). He has reminded me that where I am is not my final destination (Philippians 1:6). He has reminded me that He has a plan and purpose for my life and no one can stop it (Romans 8:31). He has reminded me that wherever He has me I am to serve Him (Colossians 3:23).
Yet still I have struggled with breaking the invisible ceiling to finally be “worth it.”
I have also realized that I cannot blame the results of the invisible ceiling on anyone else. I am almost 30 and God has opened my eyes to truth. I cannot stay in a place of feeling like a victim. To be a victor, I have had to take control of my thoughts and actions.
THIS HAS NOT BEEN EASY!!
The invisible ceiling has been a part of my life for soooooo long that actually making it invisible has been HARD.
So, let me tell you how you can break free from the pressures of the invisible ceiling:
I know the pain of the invisible ceiling. I know the pain of being in a place of discontentment for long periods of times. I know the pain of looking back at situations and realizing that while they may have been jacked up, it was not as bad as I thought. I know the pain of running to a relationship for worth. I know the pain of not accepting my worth in Jesus. I know the pain.
But, I also know the freedom when the only definition of worth is who Jesus says you are. The worth He provides is the same if you married, divorced, or somewhere in between. The worth He provides is the same if you are a virgin or struggling with fornication. The worth He provides is the same whether you are the secretary or the managing partner. The worth He provides is the SAME no matter where you are in life or what you have done!!
My sister, wherever you are in life, live for Jesus. Why? Because you NOT are defined by your current station in life (job, relationship, car, degree, school, last name, designer bag, house size, etc), you are defined by Jesus.
Praying for you always!
This time last year, I was numb and struggling to be hopeful about my journey ahead. This time two years ago, I was excited, nervous, and unconsciously numb.
Let me take you back…
On November 25, 2015, my husband proposed to me. I said, “Yes!” He and I had met back in 2009 when he came to my university to speak. He and I had kept in “contact” over the years due to a mutual friend. Fast forward to May 2015 and he is graduating with our mutual friend from Liberty University. It was that weekend we reconnected and he shared how he felt about me. The next month (June) we started dating, and now we are in November. Caught up?
We allowed our engagement to soak in for a few days before I began wedding planning. We also had the conversation about the BIG move. And, it was decided that Chels was moving to Virginia. Let me tell you I had been in Jacksonville most of my life. I had lived in Belgium for 6 months and had just moved to Tallahassee two years prior. And, that was a BIG move. I know I was only two hours from home, but home was what I knew. Home was where my life was. It was where I went to school, university, law school, ran for local office, served as a campus missionary, gave my life to Christ, launched my first businesses, and so much more.
Soon after God opened a door for a job in Richmond. Which led me to move to Richmond in January 2016. Yep, you are counting correctly, two months after Jon proposed I was in Richmond. Whew.
The excitement carried me for a while….
And, then reality set in. I was starting completely over. I knew my husband and that was it. It was a new city, state, climate, culture (more on that in another blog), church, job… my life was new. And, I cannot honestly say I was ready. In my mind, I thought I was superwoman.
My job turned out to be one of the biggest challenges in my life. My soul ached and questioned God almost everyday. I wondered, “Did we hear you correctly God?” Now, after about 18 months removed, I see God’s hand all in the mix. I can now see what He did in me, what He was preparing for me, and what He did in the people around me.
Around August I found myself doing consulting and legal contract work. Whew! Remember I was in this new place and my connects were in Florida. It was tough. And, remember I am in a new place, am a newlywed, learning what it means to be a pastor’s wife, trying to remain calm since I could not leave my house without my GPS. It was tough for me because I was super independent and it was affecting this new home we were building financially.
Life was not easy. Life was not a fairytale especially not the one I had subconsciously created in my head. Life was real. Life was challenging.
So, last Thanksgiving, I was numb and struggling to find out who this new Chels was supposed to be. What was it in Richmond that God wanted me to do? (I know be with my handsome husband). Why was He allowing ALL THESE CHALLENGES to come for me at ONCE? When was my break? Better yet, when was my breakthrough?
Fast forward to today.
Life is not perfect, but my life is blessed. My life is not blessed because I have everything I want or prayed for. My life is blessed because I have learned through much trial and persecution, that God has my back. He is for me. He is with me.
My life is blessed because I married a man who is the real deal. Honestly, I prayed for him yet did not know people like him existed and would CHOOSE someone with all my brokenness. What do I mean? Jon wholeheartedly loves God. He is not perfect yet he consistently strives to be more like Christ. I have never heard him say, “Well, God knows my heart.” Let that sink in. He does what is right even when it is hard and if he misses the mark, repents and apologizes to those affected. He shows me love even in my ugliest moments where my brokenness is exposed. You may think, “Isn’t that what marriage is supposed to be?” Umm… showing God’s love and not being mean are two different things. Jon has also been my biggest encourager. He supported me 200% to move forward with Life with Chelsi and has been my chief strategist on how to reach more women with my story and the mission God has given me to teach women His word and lead them to His love.
My life is blessed because I am finding more of who Chelsi Bennett is. NO, I do not have it all figured out yet thankfully I do not have to. I have seen how God used my pain and suffering for my good and His glory. Having to face one of the biggest challenges of my life when I first moved here was not easy – it affected me emotionally, physically, intellectually, and mentally. BUT GOD! He had a plan and that experience allowed me look in the mirror and see the inconsistencies in my Christian walk. That experience allowed me to see the harden walls in my own heart. Double ouch! I now know that when God takes me where He is taking me that I have a responsibility to genuinely help those around me and it not be that I help people publicly and tear their character and reputation a part behind closed doors.
My life is blessed because almost one year ago when symptoms were pointing to a brain tumor, the MRI came back clean. While some of my symptoms have went away, some have not. Not only do I still experience physical symptoms, my doctor still has no idea why I am in pain. But I am alive. And I know God has the final say and will get all the glory through this journey to healing.
My life is blessed because I am breathing right now. I am in my right mind. Honestly, there were moments when I did not know where my strength was and if I had a single ounce to stay the course. For a season, I found myself “enjoying” the house dark. Yep, you guessed it, I was slipping into depression. As always, Jon was there to love me, pray for me, and carry me through.
My life is blessed because I am settled into my new home. I love my church. I have an amazing job and super amazing boss. I can get around the city without my GPS. I have found a rhythm that gives me hope for all that God will do through me, for me, AND in me in Richmond. And, I have built some amazing friendships.
My life is blessed because even though my friend circle has changed a bit and is much smaller, those who have been in my corner did not stop caring for me doing this season. Many would call and text often. They would send encouraging messages or funny messages. Most importantly, they never stop praying and were just there sometimes.
My life is blessed because I now know superwomen with capes are for the movies. Superwomen who spend more time on their knees than on social media, watching TV, gossiping, complaining, etc is the ultimate #goal. I desire to know God more and more each day. I am called to lead women to Christ’s love yet that comes through truth of what it means to be a virtuous woman of God.
My life is blessed because I still get to preach the gospel. Since June 2017 I have been teaching and leading ladies at my church. Yep, through my suffering and darkest hours, I was still reminding others about the goodness and faithfulness of God. While my growth group may not have known all the details, they knew that life was challenging and I wanted them to know that life happens and YOU HAVE TO PUSH THROUGH because God is faithful.
My life is blessed because you just read my story. My hope is that you are encouraged in the midst of your current trial, persecution, issue to keep going. You may not have all the answers or any at all. You may not see how God could use your situation for His glory. You may not want to continue following God because of the pain and suffering. You may want control now. You may not want to see tomorrow. BUT, I promise you God has a plan!
Happy Happy Thanksgiving!!!
Praying for you,
Be sure to join me on Facebook Live every Monday at 7:30AM EST for an encouraging message to jumpstart your week.
Last year, my doctor thought that I had a brain tumor. I cried and freaked out, as you can imagine. I was faced with how I was living my life for Christ and how afraid of death I was. This week’s devotion looks at Philippians 1:21. Is your life devoted to Christ? Are you afraid of death? Watch this week's devotional below:
Over the past year, I have struggled with my weight. I found myself in a downward spiral. Does this sound familiar? Are you looking for practical tips to help you overcome your weight struggle? Watch this week's video for the 5 E's to how I am overcoming my weight struggle.
What is on the inside of you? Does it match what you proclaim on the outside? It can be easy in this self-centered world to be two different people. Yet, my prayer is that your inside will shine brighter than who you try to convince people you are.
I have struggled with being consistent with my quiet time. It seems life happens and I end up saying a quick prayer while getting ready for the day. This week on Life with Chelsi, I share a few easy tips on how to spend quality time with Jesus.
Also, I encourage you to join me starting Sept.1st for my "1010 Challenge." It is a 10 Minutes for 10 Days Quiet Time Challenge.
Umm... I want to be honest with you...
I love Jesus... I am married to a pastor... I lead our young adult women's ministry... I came to know Jesus when I was pre-teen... And, sometimes I struggle with spending quality quiet time with Jesus.
Now, that I have been honest, will you too?
The crazy thing for me is that I LOVE quiet time! I love being in my prayer closet with my cozy blanket, my journal, my Bible, and either a cup of coffee/tea or a smoothie. I love being with Jesus. I absolutely love it!!! But, it does not mean that it always comes easy to me. Sometimes I am overwhelmed by the cares of life and other times I feel so distance because of a decision I have made or because I really wanted God to handle a situation in my life differently (and, do not read this as if you have never pouted with God). Honestly, way too often I will pray during my morning shower time and may even read and think on a scripture I come across from Instagram without being intentional about my quiet time. No matter what I say, there is no excuse for me not giving God my best everyday!
Over the past few years, I have noticed this isn't a challenge isolated to me but for so many other women in different seasons of life. And, maybe you?!
You may be a new Christian who wants to learn how to spend time with Jesus or you may be a lifelong church member who needs a reboot. Starting Friday, September 1st, I invite you to join me on a 10 Day quiet time challenge.
The purpose of the challenge is to help you begin creating a new habit of spending time with Jesus. I pray your heart is touched and you experience Jesus as the Most Intimate Lover of Your Soul. I pray you are set free from condemnation, fear, guilt, shame, and inadequacy. I pray that you will hunger for more of King Jesus and that you find yourself spending more than 10 minutes with Jesus! My prayer is that at the end of our 10 days you will have a scheduled time, place, and plan for your quiet time.
I BELIEVE IN YOU!! I AM HERE FOR YOU!!
Here's what you can expect during "10 Minutes for 10 Days":
Will you join me?
Each day, I will share the scriptures, questions, and video right here on my website.
Watch this video to learn one of the hardest verses for me to follow AND leave a comment on the hardest verse for you to follow!
Hello sweet friend-
My name is Chelsi B! I am a pastor’s wife, former elected official, your homegirl that loves to dance on the 1s and 3s, attorney, novice chef, and Jesus-loving truth teller. More importantly, I am on a mission to lead women to love Christ.
For several years, I have felt a burden to reach young women by sharing my testimony and lessons learned. And, let me tell you, I have soooooo many lessons to share in hopes to spare you the pain, heartache, and disappointment I have experienced. Last year I moved to Virginia from Florida to marry my handsome husband, Jon, who is truly everything I prayed for and much more. (I will talk about him, our dating relationship, and what I have learned as a newlywed in upcoming blogs.) Jon has been an assistant pastor for over 10 years with a focus on teen ministry. It was heavy on our hearts to launch a young adult ministry at our church. And, we did! So heavy on our hearts that we left our honeymoon a few days early to come back to Richmond to build a new set and create an app. We were so high on love and Jesus that we could not imagine waiting another day to start laying the foundation for this new ministry.
Now, on Sunday mornings, I lead our women's small group and have been exponentially blessed by the sisterhood we have created. Yet, I knew God was calling for me to share more, pour into other ladies more, and just plain out be more open about my failures and successes. As a recovering politician, you can imagine sharing all your junk can be difficult. In politics, you are trained to only share the essentials. But God did not only call me to politics He has also called me to ministry. (What a pill to swallow).
So, earlier this year I decided I would take a big step of faith and go for it. I decided I would share with young women what I knew and learn even more about Jesus, life, and Christian womanhood. In January, "Life with Chelsi" was launched as a daily podcast. It was going well, yet in talking with my listeners I learned that many listened to all five daily devotionals at the end or beginning of their week. I thought about this and decided that a weekly video format would be my next best step. And, so birthed "Life with Chelsi" on YouTube.
Since July 3rd, every Monday I have released an inspirational video message for Christian millennial women. We talk about the issues that you and I have to tackle on a daily basis. Think love, apologetics, career, purpose, current issues, friendships, and women empowerment.
Life with Chelsi was launched to be a place for me and you to gather together, grow together, learn together, and ultimately fall deeper in love with Christ together. It is a community of women, for women who are on a journey to learning and accepting God’s love. It is a journey of hope, love, faith, mishaps, disappointment, pain, grace, and Christ.
I truly believe that through the teachings God is touching lives, providing directions, encouraging those who may be depressed, grieving, lost, frustrated, setting young women free from addictions and strongholds, and so much more. I cannot imagine what is to come - not because of me but because of my obedience to pursue purpose. In my heart of hearts, I want women to know how to embrace God, His love, and how He made them -- and that is not easy or natural for most of us. At least it has not been for me...
Will you join me on this journey? Will you even share your story with us?
Every Monday via Facebook LIVE, I will share a message. Please watch the video, leave a comment, and share with another girlfriend! Plus, I will be blogging here often - so check back.
I am praying for you and our journey...

Whew. It has been a tough season. A season of being broken before the Lord. Did I say it has been tough??
The beauty of this season has been learning more about the faithful, wonderful, loving, kind, amazing, awesome, healing, providing God I serve. There have many moments where I felt like, "God, where are you?".... Have you ever felt like that? Have you ever felt like God has deserted you and left you for the wolves?
It is a scary feeling. You ask yourself a ton of questions all wondering whether you did something wrong or if you are crazy to believe in God. Listen, some may say you are crazy because you have faith to believe in God. And, maybe you are! Yet, you are crazy enough to know that there is NOTHING this present life can offer you to fulfill the void you have in your life. We all have tried to make people or things our god and be god in our own lives. I miserably failed. And, I understand now it is because the void/longing we all have in our heart can only be filled by God, our Creator, our Father.
Law school caused me to question everything I believed. And, I am SOO thankful. Like in school, as a student you find out how much you know and have retained by your test scores. What are your faith test scores saying about you? Do you only trust God when things are going your way??
Faith is the substance of things hoped for, evidence of things not seen. What are you believing God for?
Philippians 1:6 is a constant motivator for someone like me, that strives for perfection. Yes, I know, no one is perfect. I am not perfect. You are not perfect. My friends are not perfect. My family is not perfect. I know. I, also know that as God has shown me more about life in this season, the struggles are all preparation.
A while back, you could not have convinced me that I was in God's will. Why? I, also, had this notion that I missed God because I was suffering. WRONG! We miss God when we disobey Him. You may be in a tough season right now, but that does not mean you are outside the will of God. I know, I know- someone somewhere in some pulpit told you that you're only in the will of God if everything is going right. Next time you hear that, ask them for the scripture.
Yes, God has promised us amazing blessings. He also made it clear that we would endure suffering. Let's think for a minute. Jesus died on the cross for our sins, He suffered. Was it outside the will of God? I THINK NOT!!!! He was right dab smack in it. He was beaten. He was lied on. He was lied to. He was betrayed. All while in the perfect will of God.
In the wilderness of your Christian walk, you are being prepared. The bigger question is: Will you survive? Not just survive physically, but spiritually. Will you trust God when the tears are flowing down your eyes profusely? Will you trust Him when chaos seems to overtake every area of your life? Will you trust Him to be God in every area, every situation, every inch of your heart.
I know there is a part of you that does not want to suffer. I get that. I do. Yet, I also have learned avoiding pain and suffering only places me in a place of disobedience to God. Not only do I miss God but I also have to go through the process later.
My friend, He is with and for you. Though you cannot comprehend or explain it all, you have to have faith in the King of Kings. He loves you. He allowed His Son to suffer an excruciating and painful death to save your soul. Will you survive in faith? Will you allow Him to prepare you?
I am praying your strength. I know how it feels to be prepared for the great work of the Lord.
praying for you always,
