Let’s Talk Studio has been something that Teresa wanted to do for a number of years; but didn’t know how it would happen. Yet a simple phone call in 2009 caused a dream to unfold into the realm of reality. The call was regarding a potential idea for a local television show. However with the logistics of Teresa Ann’s family and other incredible happenings in that season of their lives, they knew it wasn’t the right time. However just the knowing that it could happen caused the desire to be stirred. The desire for this influence was for the purpose of encouraging and uplifting others by pointing them back to The Father God. Little did Teresa know that the next 7 years would be her training ground – but not in the way you would think. It was in the private moments and “walking it out” moments that caused growth as vision increased with every person she had the honor of coming alongside. It was the “seemingly ordinary” who were truly extraordinary people filled with exceptional gifts and stories that were beyond comprehension revealing Almighty God.
After a series of events in August 2016, involving prayer, fasting, a word of wisdom through her pastor and a book mark she wrote on that was provided during the fast to write down what we were believing in God for – those collective moments leading up to that day on August 24, 2016, it was a Wednesday morning during corporate prayer, Teresa heard in her spirit as she was praying for personal requests, she heard, “Write it down…” As soon as she heard that, Teresa knew exactly what it meant – so she simply wrote down, “TV Show” and less than a month later, had a practical idea, “Start a YouTube channel” and the rest…well the rest is history…

About Godly Chitchat❀♡
(Partnership Between Celina & Teresa)
Godly Chitchat began when two girlfriends chose to refocus every phone call into Godly “chitchat”. When we shared our struggles of life’s injustices and curve balls, the other person was there to encourage by re-painting the situation from God’s perspective. Even as I write this, I realize that it wasn’t just the two of us on those phone calls, it was three, for most importantly God was there .
We would laugh and cry, solve mysteries, get inspired, and always walk away from the conversation better off than we were before. Every conversation brought us closer to the realization and understanding that we really are daughters of an unwavering God who passionately loves us – and who also has deep pockets, eternal resources and power of which is at our disposal at every given moment.
Teresa Ann and I have been friends for 31+ years!! The last 10 years or so is when we “flipped our script” and started participating in life-giving, Godly chitchatting – instead of typical conversations that so many have. If you would like to get involved, join us in conversation at https://www.facebook.com/groups/godlychitchat. We’ve had this group site together for about 7 years now!! You can also read more about Godly Chitchat on Celina’s personal portfolio site ChasingChaser.com.
In the last year, we’ve also kicked off physical Godly Chitchat Small Groups in multiple cities: Wichita, KS, Cincinnati, OH and Austin, TX. I wonder what God will have us do next! Hmmm…details coming soon. 😉
Celina, the founder of Pearls In Bloom and the creative behind LET’s TALK with Teresa Ann, and the author of Chasing Chaser, her personal portfolio of my creations since the birth of my son. She’s a wife to an incredible man, a mom to a hilarious and compassionate little boy, and is a multi-dimensional artist. Her work ranges from graphic design, designer of home décor goods and jewelry, sewing, painting, drawing, handmade dolls and toys, and so much more.
Since Celina was a little girl, both pearls and blooms of all types have held great meaning. She credits her grandmother’s love for pearls and handmade items as a great influence. Meanwhile, Celina’s love for blooms (flowers of all kinds) includes a funny story. Even as a little girl, she began to explore her entrepreneurial side. Together with her sister (and a shoulder push from their mom) they would go dumpster diving behind a local floral shop. Plant and flower castaways were creatively gathered and reimagined into beautiful little arrangements. She would walk down her block quickly selling out of her twenty-five-cent blooms; knowing she was about to bloom into incredible significance.
Celina has loved God since she was a little girl. Through a series of difficult phases in life, her faith in God—who heals and restores—has been her anchor. Above all, her desire is that others will experience God’s presence through her work and will want to draw closer to the original, ultimate creator.
