S.E.L.F.I.E. Check by Jas began in February 2014 as an idea for a weekly radio show, I was in grad school and pretty overwhelmed with work, school, and life. One day, while looking at “SELFIES” in my phone, I immediately felt this conviction. While I was smiling and happy in the picture, it was the complete opposite of how I felt within. I took a moment to check in with myself and curious about those thoughts and feelings. That’s when it hit me, “SELFIE Check”, a time to pause and take self-inventory of how we’re REALLY doing. The show created a space where we could check in, get motivated, and be encouraged to be intentional about our personal growth and goals.
After stopping the show in December 2014, I stepped out on faith in June 2020 to officially relaunch the show as a blog. Today, S.E.L.F.I.E. Check by Jas has evolved to encompass that vision and much more. My relationship with God has been the foundation of my faith, growth, confidence, and resilience. I incorporate many of those life-lessons into the framework here to encourage and inspire others to keep going. How God transformed my vision from a radio show, to a blog, and business where I can thrive in my gifts and creativity is something that only HE gets the glory for! My advice to anyone is to be open to God for how He wants to transform your plans. His way is always better!
