Welcome to Queens in Spring! My name is Chantel Moné and I am excited to embark on this journey with you. The vision of Queens in Spring was given to me my sophomore year of college, during a season in which I was struggling with figuring out how to embrace the identity the Lord was revealing to me, while also confronting the IMPOSTOR identity that society had so effortlessly promoted. As you can imagine, this was an extremely difficult season for me and was one that felt endless. In my spirit I knew that spring was coming, but it felt as if my winter was everlasting. I was so focused on simply making it to springtime that I wasn’t able to experience the beauty of the season that I was currently in. The Lord reminded me that life is simply a vapor that “appears for a little time and then vanishes away” (James 4:14). I no longer wanted to live my life fighting for peace or joy, so I made the decision to live life fighting with peace and joy. I recognized that my winter season may very well seem like winter, but even winter has its beauty. Winter on one side of the world may be spring on the other.
I am CONSTANTLY discovering how to find the beauty in each season, but it is a journey that I am passionate about sharing with other women. it is important for all of us to recognize our identities as royalty, and live as if life is but a vapor, recognizing that there is no gift better than the present. Live in your spring, queen!
