Why HER Success Won’t Diminish Yours!

August 30, 2016

Sister, your willingness or unwillingness to help other believers succeed says a lot about your faith in God or lack thereof. Be honest with yourself… do you cringe when your sister in Christ gets the promotion you wanted, engaged, pregnant, launches a new product, etc.? Or are you truly and genuinely happy for them without any ounce of resentment or jealousy?

The world teaches us to guard our “success” and not to share it with anyone… hide our failures and pretend we’re perfect. Don’t tell the secret ingredient, don’t share that information, don’t let them know how you did it or else they’ll take it, run with it, and be BETTER than you! For a lot of us, that’s our biggest fear. We try to passively tear down our sisters in Christ  because we don’t know our value and worth in Him. We do everything we can to feel better about ourselves–better than them. So we try to keep up with everything they’re doing and we try to do MORE on top of that so we get burnt-out and forfeit our own purpose.

All the while, we could’ve been walking in our purpose and calling while simultaneously encouraging, supporting, and helping our sisters walk in theirs. You can’t bring a worldly mindset into the Body of Christ. We are the body. We are one. We all have a purpose and a specific role to play and no part of the body is better or more important than the other. We are all on the same team and we all have something unique to bring to the table. When you think of any sports team, take basketball for example, when someone shoots that last 3-pointer to win the championship, minutes before the clock, we all win, we all celebrate, we are all champions! When we look at our teammates with jealousy or envy, we’re missing the bigger picture and this is the enemy’s tactic. He doesn’t want you to celebrate his impending failure. The bible tells us what’s going to happen to the Satan in the last days and the devil knows his life sentence. He will be thrown into the lake of fire and doomed for all eternity. We will be the last ones standing, true Champions in Christ. As we go on through life and press towards the mark, every point that our team scores should encourage us.

The world is big enough, better yet, God is big enough! The enemy will have you think that the more someone else excels in the world, the less room there is for you to. I guarantee that there are people in this world that only YOU can reach and vice versa. This why you we were purposed with a unique assignment and the bible says in Proverbs 18:16, “A man’s gift makes room for him, and brings him before great men.” The world may seem small and opportunities scarce when you’re copying someone else and in their lane. In your lane, there is much more room. When you begin to operate in your specific gifts and talents, the world will get so much bigger real quick! The opportunities are endless.

I know we like to recite the cliche, “What God has for you, is for you” but do we truly understand what that means? If you feel like someone is “in your lane” or copying you, you don’t have to give them the side eye, try to compete with them, or tear them down. When you are truly confident in your calling and in what God has for you, you will trust Him to fight your battles and defend you. He will deal with that person who tries to take advantage of you. Get rid of the worldly mentality that says, “every man for himself” and replace that with, “God is for me.” I don’t have time to defend myself because I’m too busy serving God and His Kingdom and that includes the people in it.

“What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31

It’s a waste of time and purpose to try and compete with your brothers and sisters in Christ. It’s a waste of time to also judge whether or not you think they’re copying you or trying to compete with you. Let’s be honest, it would be very silly for me to think that I’m the only person in the world that God called to write a book, start a Youtube channel, start a blog, etc. Each one of us have a unique and individual purpose but our calling may be very similar because it is through our callings that we carry out our purpose. God uses our callings as tools to do His will. It is silly to think that you are the only one allowed to use the tools that God provides. Now, that’s not confidence in God’s purpose for your life, that’s just pride. That is why I’m ok with dedicating my life to sharing these tools with other believers. That’s why I’m ok with teaching them skills like graphic design, web-design, self-publishing, starting a blog, or whatever else it may be. I understand that they need these tools to go forth and operate in purpose. In order to do that, they must do what God has called them to do. I know my purpose is to equip believers with the tools and skills they need to walk in theirs. With a purpose like that, you don’t have time to be jealous.. and with a purpose like yours, you don’t either.

Your purpose will NEVER, NEVER just be about you. Your purpose will always be a way to build, edify, or help someone else. Remember, it is bigger than you!!! So why does the enemy try so hard to get us distracted, divided, and envious of one another? Because he thinks that if he could stop us from operating in our God-given purpose and in unity, he could stop God’s perfect will from coming to pass! Let’s not give him an open door. Please, find a sister to support today! You’re not loosing, you’re only adding points to our team!

10 Proven Ways to Get More Traffic to Your Site!

August 22, 2016

The response that I got from my blog post: Passive Income: My Secrets to Making Money From Home was out of this world! I was surprised to see how much people were interested in this topic and many of you asked for a follow-up post on how to get more traffic to your site. Of course, the more traffic you have, the more passive income you will be able to make in a short amount of time. So here are 10 proven ways of getting more traffic to your blog or website!


1. Study Your Analytics and Make The Proper Adjustments

If you want to generate more traffic, you have to study your current traffic to learn what you are doing right or wrong, and see where you can improve. I use Google Analytics to do this. Some important things to look at are your bounce rate and user demographics. The bounce rate will tell you the percentage of people who leave your site after just viewing one page. If you have a really high bounce rate, like 85%, then there’s a problem. You have to ask yourself, why is everyone leaving my site? Is it boring? Uninteresting? What other links can I add? How can I make it more user-friendly? etc.  The user demographics will tell you what type of people usually come to your site. For example, my site usually sees women ages 18-35. I’m not going to cater to little girls but I am going to focus in on the target audience that I already have so that I don’t push them away. You can also run experiments through Google Analytics. This program has many other awesome features but I will cover them more in depth on my Youtube Channel soon.


2. Start a Mailing List

To gain more traffic, you want to make sure that a majority of your visitors are not just new visitors, but returning visitors. If you have a lot of committed visitors plus new visitors, then you’re doing something right. A way to get people returning to your site is by having a mailing list. What if someone stumbles on your website through a google search engine but they’ve never heard of you before in their life? You may provide the answer that they are looking for… but if you don’t get them to sign-up for your mailing list, they may leave and never come back! My favorite mailing list program is MailChimp and you can sign-up for free! When people sign up for your mailing list, they get automatic updates when you post new blogs! I recommend offering them something in return for signing-up … like a free e-book. I will also be doing tutorials on setting up your MailChimp RSS feed, designing your newsletter and more on my Youtube Channel so don’t miss out!


3. Draw people in with great visuals!

Pictures are everything! Sometimes people don’t even read our titles and descriptions, they just look straight at the picture and that determines whether or not they will look further into our links and posts. Use captivating and bright images to gain more traffic. One of my favorite websites to purchase royalty free stock photos is Every month I just pay $25 for the cheapest package and I can usually download about 5-10 good quality images depending on the size! I use these images for blog posts, book covers, newsletters, social media graphics, etc.


4. Create Quality Content

What is your website about? Does it have good information? What do you have to offer that others don’t? How helpful is your website? Your traffic will vary depending on the content as well as the content quality. If you start a website about money, a lot of people may come at first because people are greedy and love money. But if you don’t know what you’re talking about and can’t add value to the persons life, they won’t come back and they won’t be inclined to share your content with anyone. Quality content is golden and people don’t want to miss out. When you have true quality content, people will find ways to subscribe without you having to ask. They will track you down and they will feel guilty if they don’t share your page with others! Let your content do the work for you!


5. Attract Readers with a Good Title

Don’t just give your post any name! Put yourself in your readers’ shoes. Give your post a title that you couldn’t help but click immediately! In terms of blogging, people generally like titles that includes lists, also, be specific. For example, instead of saying, What I Like to Eat (boring), you can say, 5 Crazy Foods You Wouldn’t Believe I Eat! (dramatic but fun). Also, don’t make a list for every post, only where it fits. This isn’t a formula, use your discernment and don’t go overboard. You definitely don’t want to be or look desperate for views!


6. Create a Consistent Posting Schedule

This is a fast paced world. You may have posted a viral blog 5 months ago, but if you haven’t posted in between that time and now, the fire has burned out honey. Feed the fire while it’s hot. The way you do that is by developing a consistent posting schedule. When you are consistent, your readers begin to trust you and look forward to your posting days. I’m not going to lie! This has probably been one of my hardest areas, but I’m working on it because I have seen the benefits of being more consistent with my site. Having things in place ahead of time will help with the consistency because you’re not digging for ideas last minute and just putting anything out there. For example, I have about 3 blog posts ready right now that I can launch at any moment! Stay ahead of your schedule, not on it!


7. Brand Everything with Your Website

My website is everywhere. Everything I touch has my website on it. My books, my youtube videos, my social media accounts, my emails, my business cards, chat rooms, forums, everything. Be bold, stop being ashamed. Leave your website url in different places so that you’re not always actively having to promote it. People will stumble on your website through various sources as you continue on in life.


8. Learn Search Engine Optimization (SEO) & Use Keywords

My website is optimized for the search engines because I always add the proper meta tags and keywords behind every blog post. This is how my posts are able to rank high on the various search engines, like Google. Keywords are words or phrases that describe your content. The search engines use your keywords to provide results for their users based off of their search queries.

For example, someone may log on to google one day and type in: “How do I get over my breakup.”

If I ever wrote a blog post about getting over a break, I would use a meta tag to enter in keywords like this: bad, breakup, how, get, over, help, me, sad, depression, wisdom, guidance

Google would do a search and the fact that 4 of my keywords match this users’ query, there is a good chance that my blog post may show up in the first few pages for this search.


9. Post on Social Media

This is probably one of the easiest things you can do to increase website traffic. Post on social media when you have new content on your site! Don’t just expect everyone to come to you. People are so busy with their lives, more often than not, they are not thinking about us and our websites. Help them find you!


10. Post on other blogging or forum sites

Gosh there are so many networking sites that people already go on to interact and discuss specific topics. Become a freelance writer for other sites, share your content and post on different forums, join in on the conversation and always link people back to your website! If you want to become a good blogger, realize that it is a community. It’s not just about you posting blogs and wanting traffic. Get involved. Comment on other people’s websites. Ask questions, learn, grown, experiment, create, collaborate, have fun!



I know this was a pretty long blog post but I hope that it was both helpful and informative. Once you start building more traffic, you will begin to see the benefits of passive income. Happy blogging!

Passive Income: My Secrets to Making Money from Home!

August 15, 2016


I love being a stay-at-home mommy and wife!!! But I don’t just sit around all day! I believe that if more believers educated themselves concerning multiple streams of income, we could do more for God’s Kingdom! Passive income is money that can be made while you are sleeping or out doing what God called you to do. You can also build passive income while at a full time job. If you feel led, during your free time, look into building a system that will work for you. Then, if God ever calls you out of your job, He could use that as a way to support you. Once you build the foundation for a strong passive income source, you just let it do it’s thing and you reap the benefits thereafter. So here are 7 different ways I make passive income from home!


1. My Online Business

I have a publishing business that I work from home like I mentioned earlier. The website is The active part is the publishing process. After the books are published, the passive part kicks in because I get monthly royalty payments for all books published through my company.

2. My Books

Outside of my company and the authors I work with, I’ve written my own books: Before Saying “Yes” to the Ring, Young & Living for God, The One Revealed, and To The Promised Land. I still make income online from even my first book that I published three years ago!

3. Brand Deals & Promotions

I do business with brands that I support and believe in and I get paid to share their products! Not only that, but they give me their products for free! I can either do product reviews on my Youtube channel (The Roberts Tv) or on Instagram (@KarolyneRoberts). One of my favorite websites to find brand deals is where you can sign up as a content creator!

4. Advertisements & Traffic

I use Google Adsense to place ads on my blogs and YouTube channels. I get paid for every advertisement that is watched or clicked!

5. Referrals & Affiliate Links

Almost every company I do business with has an affiliate program! An affiliate program is a program that you join in order to get money back for every customer you refer.

For example, if you need a good host for web design, I recommend Bluehost. You can click my affiliate link –>HERE<– to sign up and they will give me $65! Thank you in advance 😉 Lol

6. Online Webinars

I used to do online self-publishing webinars that people would pay for once and then it was over! Then months later, I would have to do it all over again and try to find new people. Now I have a paid youtube channel HERE were people can subscribe to at any time and pay a monthly or yearly subscription fee. I don’t have to keep promoting webinars or doing the same videos all over again because it’s all on that channel and the content just keeps building and building. On that channel I teach self-publishing, marketing, promotion–basically everything I know and you get a free 14-day trial!

7. My Paypal Business MasterCard

I love paying for stuff using my Paypal debit card. The good thing about it is, every month I get 1% cash back based off of what I spent. It really comes in handy and the cash back is sooo sweet. So If I spend $1,000 one month, I’ll get $10 back! It may not seem like a lot but sometimes it really is a sweet surprise!


The point of making passive income is not to be lazy or some “get rich scheme”. I choose to be strategic and build passive income streams NOW so that later I can have more and more time to spend with my family and invest in the things that really matter to me, such as living out my purpose!

I hope this post was helpful! Please let me know if you have different tips and ways that you make passive income! I would love to hear. : – )

Guest Blog Post: Is my ex the one God has for me?

September 18, 2016
healthyyouhealthylove-com_I once went through a horrible break up with the man I thought I would marry.
We were talking about wedding plans and on the verge of setting a wedding a date.
About two years into the relationship, it was clear that God was leading us separate ways.
God had a desire for me to dive deeper into Him as a single woman, focus my efforts solely on Him, and concentrate on the tasks I needed to take care of for His Kingdom.
If you or a sister is wondering whether your ex is who God has for you, I encourage you to read what I’ve learned:
  1. Acts 1:7 (AMPC): Times and seasons are in God’s control, not yours – God checked me when I realized that I have no control over the true purpose for a relationship in my life. We get so attached to the people that come into our lives that we forget God’s power. Submit to God’s timing and stop using this time to wonder if you all will get back together. Become acquainted with God, not the unhealthy desire to control time and events.
  2. Philippians 3:16 (AMPC): He was never truly yours in the first place – Although you and your ex may have grown close as couple, you were never married. Therefore, in God’s eyes, you were never more than friends/sister and brother in Christ. Shocking, I know. But, it’s true. You haven’t officially attained a man until he becomes your spouse. If you’ve given your life to the Lord, He’s the only thing you’ve truly attained. Hold fast to Him.
  3. 1 Peter 4:8 (AMPC): I still love him, what do I do? – Yes, you should still love him. Remember that love (patience, kindness, etc.) is an action, not a feeling (1 Corinthians 13:4-8, AMPC). Feelings can fade with time. Love, on the other hand, should never end because we are called to love everyone. Regardless of whether he did you wrong or if you guys had the best relationship, love him through prayer. No, I’m not talking about praying for you all to get back together. Pray for his maturity and growth in the Lord. If you truly love him, you’ll want the best for him, regardless of whether that includes you or not.
  4. Is it ok to still think I’m his wife? – Pray for your ex as a friend and sister, not as a future wife. Remember that you can only hold true to something if you’ve already attained it or God has claimed it as yours. Don’t be foolish by using your mind to plan a future with someone God hasn’t said is yours. James 4:13-17 (AMPC) tells us that we don’t know what tomorrow will bring. For all you know, God could’ve only had your ex in your life to prepare you for your actual husband. Or, he could be your husband but God is simply using your break up to mature you for marriage. Either way, don’t claim him as yours until you know from God, not your emotions.
  5. What do I do now? – Focus less on whether he’s your man and more on how God can use this time to prepare you to be a wife for whoever He desires. Commit to investing complete trust in God, regardless of the outcome. God will keep you at peace when your mind is stayed on Him (Isaiah 26:3 KJV). Understand that because of Christ, your destiny will be promised with or without your ex in your life. Direct all the hurt, pain, and sorrow you feel into energy for God’s Word. If you don’t know how to read God’s Word, pray, or want to grow closer to God, I encourage you to check out my book, I Believe in God, Now What? which is on sale for 3 dollars! (or get the FREE book sample below)
To begin deepening your relationship with God and become prepared for your future husband, order your copy of I Believe in God, Now What? by clicking here.
About the author of I Believe in God, Now What?: Jordone Branch has a passion for helping women deepen their relationships with God amid stormy pasts. An award-winning writer, her blog has gleaned famed attention, including radio personality Michael Baisden. She enjoys speaking nationally, encouraging and empowering women and youth in her sought-after seminars.

How to Know When You’re Ready to Walk in Your Calling

September 5, 2016

“But the LORD said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you.”
– Jeremiah 1:7

This was me. “God I’m not ready,” “God I’m too young,” “God I’m not experienced,” “God I need a mentor,” “God I don’t have the money,” “I need to read more books,” “God, I’m scared!”

I gave God every excuse in the book as to why I wasn’t qualified to do what he called me to do. Too many times I let an opportunity pass to operate in my calling because, instead, I was operating in disobedience and fear.

Like Jonah in the bible, who ran away from his assignment to deliver an important message to the people of Nineveh, I’ve run away from my assignment too. People see me now and they tell me they’re so “inspired” by the Deliverance Conference that I’m hosting this October… but if they only knew the struggle and the teeth God had to pull from me to get to this point…God told me to have this conference YEARS ago, and so many times I put it on the back burner or occupied my time with something else because I just didn’t feel “ready”. I’ve read books after books, watched videos, sermons, read articles about spiritual warfare… but I thought, let me delay this conference because I still didn’t feel “ready”.

Until one morning God woke me up from my deep sleep, and called me to repentance… just like Jonah, who found himself sleeping on the boat in the midst of the deadliest storm. It went like this…

“Karolyne, wake up.”

(I open my eyes at the voice of the Holy Spirit)

Then I hear 7 extremely loud car horns outside my window: beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep!!!

(I doze back to sleep)

He whispers again: “wake up.”

Immediately, I hear 7 more loud car beeps outside my window: beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep!!!

I fall back asleep one more time….


Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep!!! 7 more times!!!

Suddenly, I awake and sit up on my bed! I’m thinking, what is going on and who the heck is beeping outside my window!!! Then the Holy Spirit leads me to count the beeps and find the meaning. So 3×7 is 21. The biblical meaning for the number 21 according to The Bible study site, symbolizes willful wickedness. It is closely related to the number 13, which symbolizes sin, rebellion and depravity.

I started balling tears! I felt so convicted. Immediately I got on my knees and repented. I truly was being an evil and disobedient servant. At that moment, in my heart, I knew exactly what I was running away from.

That morning, after I repented, I called my Pastor and shared what happened. She said many things that both affirmed and convicted me. Because I had been hiding, I wasn’t in the position to serve where I was needed and she assured me that there was a great need even though I may not see it. This encouraged me and affirmed me to move forward with the specific call that God placed on my life.

I knew exactly what I needed to do. It was time to act NOW. No more excuses, no more thinking, no more paying attention to the fear, even though I was still afraid, I decided to go forth and finally do what God called me to do.

I officially announced that I was having a Deliverance Conference! I launched the website (which I had already purchased two years prior but never put it to use). I didn’t even know where the conference was going to be held, how I would pay for it, or any of the logistics. I just knew I could no longer be disobedient. The idea that God sent someone to come outside my window to beep 21 times in increments of 7 right after each time He woke me up, made me desire THAT type of obedience. The type of obedience that says, “no matter how crazy I look or how crazy I feel, I will trust you Lord. I will do what you tell me to do.” What would you do if the Holy Spirit sent you driving to a random neighborhood, sat you in the parking lot, and said, “I want you to beep when I tell you to beep 7 times.” Would you do it?

Since  I took that first step, God has shown himself faithful throughout the process. I’ve been given a venue to host the conference for free, many people have volunteered and stepped in to help, and so much more. As October rapidly approaches, I’m learning more and more to rely on God’s strength, provision, and wisdom vs. my own abilities and understanding.

It hasn’t been an easy journey, but here is what I’ve learned along the way:

1.You may never feel 100% ready to walk in your calling and that’s ok. You’re ready when God says you’re ready… not when you “think” you are. Trust Him.

2. It’s not about you or how you feel. This is bigger than all of us! Someone’s life, someone’s salvation, someone’s hope is tied to your obedience.

3. God requires complete obedience not partial obedience. Partial or delayed obedience is still disobedience.

4. God does the work, we’re just the vessels… but you must be emptied, purified, and tested for His use.

5. God will provide everything you need… just ask Him. Whether it be provision, wisdom, strength, etc. There is nothing too hard for Him.

If you find yourself in a place where you’re running away from God’s call on your life, I encourage you to repent. Ask yourself, “what is making me run? what is stealing my attention, who or what have I been listening too? What is making me feel like I’m not ready? Is it the fear of failure? Is it the fear of man? Am I too worried about what people are going to think of me when I step out in faith?”

You are needed in the Body of Christ. You are valuable and you are purposed with a specific assignment from God. Don’t let a demon in hell or anybody else tell you otherwise! Do not delay, when God says it’s time, it’s time!
