A woman of faith, full of purpose, and serious about helping others tap into their spiritual gifts. Brittany Jack makes no qualms about her love of Christ. The 25-year-old self-proclaimed “Creative Evangelist” is debuting her show, “The Keys to Miracles”, later this month on Blossom.
“I am so incredibly excited thinking about how many lives will be impacted. Diamonde and the Blossom team are a sensational group of women and I am nothing short of honored to work with these ladies,” Brittany said.
Tyler: Tell us about your professional background and your current work
My professional background is quite an interesting mix of law, health & wellness, photography, and marketing. When I graduated from The University of Alabama in 2014, I wanted to go straight to law school. However, I had some girlfriends that were currently in law school who encouraged me to get a job at a firm first to get my hands dirty and make sure I really wanted to practice law. I am so grateful for their wisdom and solid advisement because after working at the largest family law firm in Georgia for a little over 2 years, I decided law wasn’t for me. Immediately thereafter, I began working for Lululemon where I had the opportunity to combine my photography skills, marketing skills as well as my love for health and wellness altogether. I now work in the creative industry at an Ad Agency in Atlanta where I serve in account management as well as lead the women’s division of Diversity, Inclusion & Engagement. I also recently launched my online business “One of One” where I design and create lifestyle products that are pieces that spark conversations and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Hmm, a “Creative Evangelist. That’s what I’ll call myself for now. I always seem to find myself in a position where I can put several different talents to use at one time.
Tyler: Describe a regular day in your world.
A regular day in Brittany Jack’s world. That isn’t a thing, haha. I don’t think I would describe any of my days as regular. God is always doing a new thing (Isaiah 43:19), so I never know what I am going to get and I love it that way. I usually get up around 5:30 a.m., sometimes 3 a.m. or 4 a.m., if prompted. I study The Word, pray and get locked in for the day. I journey to Midtown, and during my commutes, I am either screaming my favorite songs as other drivers stare at me rather entertained, or I utilize my 45-minute drives listening to audiobooks or my favorite podcasts. Atlanta equals traffic, so I’ve made a habit using my commutes as a time for personal development. I spend the next 7-8 hours serving at my agency. Most days are filled with jumping on new creative projects, researching the latest in diversity and inclusion efforts across the world, and serving at my agency in a way that sets up everyone around me for success. Once I am finished at the agency for the day, I jump right into developing my brand and my business. My days right now are overflowing with personal development and opportunities to get better every single day. So, every day I am locked in on advancing in my purpose.
Tyler: There are tons of niche blogs and social media personalities, what experience/moment pushed you to pursue faith-based content?
It’s a compilation of several different moments, specific directions from God and promptings from the Holy Spirit. My purpose is to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. I realized that I had all these different talents and gifts that I was just sitting on. Match that with the fact that I found myself constantly looking around at all these women who are searching, struggling and striving towards wholeness, towards purpose ya know? Towards something so much greater than themselves, and I thought to myself, “Wait a minute…I know where they can find what they are searching so desperately for.” So, I found a way to start giving out the answers. See, when you have the key to something, you don’t hide it.
Tyler: In one of your blogs you write, “The world is in desperate need of every single thing you have been strategically given by God.” I absolutely love this statement. What advice can you give to women who struggle with finding purpose or feel lost in life?
GET IN THE WORD OF GOD. Study God’s word, pray, and LISTEN to what He tells you. The revelation of who you are and what you were designed for comes through a RELATIONSHIP with God. Purpose isn’t cookie cutter. You can’t find it in any workshop, conference, webinar, etc. because each of us are uniquely hand-crafted and designed for a specific purpose, why would we run to anyone else to define what that is for us? I am telling any woman who is reading this right now to get in the word of God. Ask God, “Who Am I? What specific purpose did you create me for? What problem did you design me to solve?” I’ve found that while I’m studying God’s word that different things jump out at me. I study the stories, I look at the different people and Identify similarities within in myself. I ask God why certain things matter to me. “Ok God, why did what I just read make me feel that way? Why is this tugging at my heart the way that it is?” Purpose is revealed through a relationship with God. When we get into His word, we discover who we are.
Tyler: What five words would you use to best describe your personality?
Bright, Authentic, Loving, Hilarious, and Audacious.
Tyler: Which scripture or inspirational quote keeps your faith anchored on difficult days?
One of my favorites is Psalms 16:8 “I set The Lord always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.”
Tyler: Who are the most influential women in your life?
The most influential women in my life are my mama and my Pastor, Phineka Friend (who is also my mama, spiritual mama that is). These two women personify strength, individuality, authority, and power. Not to mention they are both absolutely gorgeous. Their love has healed and empowered me in ways that I cannot articulate.
Tyler: Basketball requires great discipline, focus, and teamwork. As a former D1 athlete, what lessons from the game molded you into the woman that you are today?
Oh, the many lessons! I played basketball for 17 years. The most valuable things that I took away from the game are mental toughness, how imperative clear and concise communication is, and how capable I am of performing at an extremely high level. I was a full-time student and a full-time athlete at the greatest school in the world. So, I have tangible life skills to draw from when navigating through life.
Tyler: Looking back on your life, what is one the piece of advice that you would say to your younger self?
I would tell my younger self that IT ALWAYS GETS BETTER. I would let her know that God has this unimaginable life planned for Her. I would tell her that she is worthy and more than capable. I would tell the younger Brittany to always speak powerful things over herself because her words shape her reality.
