Community for Women
The Spiritual Go-Getter is a vibrant + diverse community of Christ followers from around the world.
We come from different backgrounds and have unique skills, talents and abilities.
Still, we share a few common threads— a desire to honour God by not playing it safe or small with this ONE BEAUTIFUL LIFE we’ve been given.
We wholeheartedly trust that with prayer, planning + passion we can live out the divine calling given to us by the Lord.
Introducing TSGG’s Founder
HI, I’M NADIA LAWS.
So happy to meet you (digitally at least)!
My hope is that one day we’ll get to meet up for tea, a chat and to exchange stories about how God has moved in our lives.
Until then, here’s a little introduction of who I am and why I started The Spiritual Go Getter digital magazine and membership community.
HERE’S PART OF MY STORY:
It was in 2014 – during one of the most difficult seasons of my life following the death of my father – that God gave me a clear assignment for how to use my passion for writing for His glory. He told me to do two things…
1) To write for the local Religion section of the newspaper (where I happened to work full time as a reporter) and;
2) To one day share the stories of inspiring believers from around the world. (I’m super passionate about travel, so this idea —while big, scary and seemingly impossible—got me massively fired up.)
The first of those two assignments I was able to act on pretty quickly – thanks to the platform God had already given me at my day job. Every single Saturday for five years I shared the stories of local believers in Bermuda who were hosting faith based events, going on mission’s trips, writing books and going deeper in their walk with God.
You can read more about that part of the journey here.
However, my road to getting to the second part of God’s assignment wasn’t easy. It was filled with twists and turns, ups and downs…
HERE’S MORE ABOUT THAT CHAPTER
In 2016, I decided it was time to leave my job as a lifestyle reporter at The Royal Gazette. Sitting in my cubicle day in and out, I felt unfulfilled and restless. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t escape the feeling God had created me for something more…
So without a solid plan or much of a safety net, I left that job to figure out what else God might have for me.
Thankfully, I was able to keep up the Religion section as a freelance writer, even after making that leap.
After handing in my resignation, I went travelling solo for three months and found myself serving for a couple of weeks at an awesome Christian ministry called Word of Life in Uganda. I also spent time backpacking (yes, I seriously only had one backpack) through South Africa, Israel and Jordan.
It was without a doubt one of the best experiences of my life – and stretched my faith in so many ways.
MY CROSSROADS MOMENT
When I got back home to my small island home in Bermuda I started losing momentum.
I was greeted by several closed doors – and only two open ones – to either pursue a Christian blog I had started, which had brought me great joy and meaning and maybe get a part time job to make money.
Or I could do the ‘sensible’ and ‘realistic’ thing and put my journalism skills to use with PR consulting.
I chose the latter – partly out of fear, but also because it seemed more ‘practical’ and ‘realistic’.
Let’s face it, it’s hard to start completely over as an amateur and requires so much humility, trust and patience (FYI: I really struggle with these areas, but God is working on me!).
MY TEMPORARY DETOUR …
Did I mention, Bermuda happens to be the most expensive place in the world to live, according to a recent study published in the Independent newspaper in the UK? This only made taking the leap seem even more scary.
Funny thing is God blessed my consulting business.
In its first year I matched my journalism salary. I also went on to win two notable awards for work in our industry. But then last year at the height of the company’s success, I felt that inner whisper again – ‘You were made for something more’.
I had reached all the outward markers for success, but knew I wasn’t using my writing in service to God. In fact, talking openly about my faith wasn’t really accepted in the corporate environments I found myself working in.
THEN GOD STARTED TO REDIRECT MY PATH – ONE BABY STEP AT A TIME.
Last year, He began watering that seed He planted in me – to share the stories of Christian women from around the world using their time, talents and treasures in service to the Lord.
At first I was thinking small – like a blog that could be read by my family and friends.
However, after a series of events (which I believe God divinely orchestrated for my good), I began thinking bigger – envisioning how these testimonies and this digital platform could be an inspiration and encouragement to believers around the world.
I ended 2019 on a high note – with the clarity, courage and faith to start The Spiritual Go-Getter.
THE SPIRITUAL GO-GETTER WAS BORN…
In February (2020), I released our first quarterly digital magazine into the world – filled with stories of incredible and inspiring Christian women from around the world like:
- Juliette Bush, who runs a Christian travel retreat business in far off corners of the globe like Dubai, Bali and South Africa;
- Capri Astwood, who shared her testimony of losing both her parents due to illness – and how God carried her through;
- Agathe Holowatinc, a Christian health coach who left her stable corporate job to pursue her passion.
It was a complete ‘aha’ moment seeing how following God’s breadcrumbs could lead me to something that so perfectly aligned with my unique skills, passions, talents – and ultimately my purpose.
It took me several years – and a few delays and detours – to get to this place, but I’m so beyond thankful for God’s grace and patience with me.
I TRULY BELIEVE GOD CAN USE ANY OF US.
We just need a desire to take whatever is in our hands and use it for His glory.
In my case, it was a laptop, subscription to Canva and burst of courage that got me to launch The Spiritual Go-Getter.
Every three months, I release a new digital magazine filled with powerful testimonies and inspiration to show you how you can live a life that makes you feel free, fulfilled and fired up for Christ.
But the real point I want to remind you of is this—no matter how you feel or where you’re at right now on your journey, creating a beautiful life that brings God glory is SO possible. And I’m here to help you figure out how.
