Retreat Party-in-a-Box

Hi! My name is Tess and I am an established author of four books. I am sharing with you my hope, fears, dreams, and my first book, My TESStimony. This inspirational book essentially stemmed from my personal mantra: there is nothing too hard for God. Although now a successful entrepreneur, team builder, civic leader, product specialist, mentor, and educator; I do not have it all. I have combined my life as a businesswoman, mother, and lover of life.

My TESStimony Gift Box is a perfect example that showcases the healing process of my life. I chose the biblical story of the Alabaster Box because it resembles my sentiments Mary intimately conveyed to Jesus. She washed His feet with her hair, tears, and oil which symbolized giving and leaving everything at the feet of Jesus. (Matthew 26:6-13, John 12:1-8, KJV) Everyone stumbles and falls. You just have to keep getting back up again, again, and AGAIN. In this box, I share my past, present, and future. Together, with healed hearts, we can make it. With the help of our loving Savior, we can motivate others and increase joy! What’s in your box?!?

My TESStimony Retreat Experience

Are you in need of a quick get-away from a hectic lifestyle or work overload? Are you an active listener? Do you feel more comfortable expressing your thoughts and emotions in a smaller group setting? The My TESStimony Retreat Experience is just for you. It’s a 2-hour course for women (only in groups of 10). Click here for past experience pictures: Book Party Women’s Retreat

The purpose of the Retreat Experience is to have young ladies and women feel affirmed and encouraged to grow closer to Jesus. Insightful topics from my autobiography, My TESStimony, will be discussed; of course, not limited to other topics. Each package is for two hours and is based on availability.

What makes the Retreat Experience a small intimate setting different from any other conference or a group gathering? It’s our non-judgmental attitude and our accountability that specializes in assisting women who would like to overcome an issue, addiction, or other tendencies. As young ladies and women, we find support, comfort, and motivation from others who are struggling with similar life circumstances. It has been proven that the female gender freely shares their intimacies and experiences when the climate is conducive to communicate with one another.

FREE Course on Self-Esteem For Teens

 

TESS-Universityteachable page

Welcome to TESS University (K-12) where you will discover endless possibilities for your child. You don’t have to go anywhere to take a course from TU. This course is designed to teach children about the concept of self-esteem and the role it plays in having healthy friendships. They will also develop an understanding of how to help enhance self-esteem using positive self-talk.

Love-Yourself-First

While it can be normal for a teenager to lack confidence at times, people with self-esteem issues normally view themselves differently to how others view them.

Low self-esteem can be particularly hard for young people, especially when they’re doing things like starting high school or work, and forming new friendships and relationships. Keep reading to understand self-esteem issues that may come up for your teenager and ways to help your child feel better about themselves and their capabilities.

Why your child’s self-esteem is important

Positive self-esteem for teens is important as it allows them to try new things, take healthy risks and solve problems. In turn, their learning and development will be productive and will set them up for a healthy and positive future. A young person with healthy self-esteem is more likely to display positive behavioral characteristics, such as:

  • acting independent and mature
  • taking pride in their accomplishments/achievements
  • accepting frustration and dealing with it responsibly
  • trying new things and challenges helping others when possible

There are things you can do to support your child to have positive self-esteem, but it’s also important to remember that teenage self-esteem develops and changes quite frequently overtime. If your child doesn’t show signs of positive self-esteem immediately, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re doing something wrong!
