Divinely Ruthless Empowerment Experiences

You are the unlikely warrior. You are the unlikely hero!

What does it mean to be “Divinely Ruthless? It means you have decided to embrace the truth you are of Divine origin, on this Earth with a Divine purpose (known, unknown or evolving) and you are committed to being strategically ruthless about overcoming challenges and obstacles that hinder you from fulfilling your assignment – without being ruthless to the individuals who stand in your way. It’s possible!

I am a story of a Divine exchange of beauty for ashes. Escaping an early childhood abduction attempt, a brutal assault, overcoming a secret battle with depression, a debilitating car accident and recovery from a brain injury, I had nowhere to go but up or to the grave.  Further traumatized by daily harassment in a toxic work environment, my journey out and up lead me to my discovery to embrace courage, self-confidence and becoming Divinely Ruthless.  

Save the date for 08.18.18! At this ladies only conference, I will help you find the boldness, energy and enthusiasm, in spite of your past and alongside your current situation, to courageously move forward to act on your talents and pursue that driving inner truth which is passionately seeking expression. You too can be Divinely determined and Ruthlessly relevant. With an exciting general session and 6 workshops, tickets are priced so you can confidently invest in your own future. After all, you’ve probably spent the majority of your life building someone else’s dream.  Now, it’s finally your turn.

Power Workshop ■ Keeping it Sexy! 7 Juicy Keys to Keeping Your Sexy Alive!

Mavis McKnight, M.S. was raised in a strict religious household and her only views of sex were heard from a very conservative church.  What she heard was that sex was a sin, dirty, something good girls don’t talk about, let alone do. Mavis too, was shackled by these feelings of guilt and shame around sexual teachings. God has called her to learn more and do more for Christian women like her.

Wives who want to eliminate sexual frustration, improve their health, and have more fulfilling sex, enjoy working with Mavis.  She helps move them past their blocks to sexual pleasure and delight.  Using real talk and deep care, Mavis encourages women to open up and share what matters most in their intimate relationship.  Then they can embrace and enjoy every ounce of pleasure that sex in their marriage brings to the table.  She empowers women to step into the courage it takes to become Queens of their sexual destiny.

Mavis McKnight is a candid, funny and caring Marriage, Sex and Life Coach who loves to educate, motivate and inspire women to be happy and prosperous in their lives. She is the CEO of Intimate Connections, is very happily married and resides with her family near Los Angeles.   Learn more at

When Mavis is not bubbling over with passion to teach about sex, she enjoys traveling, reading, comedy, dancing, spending time with her super handsome, cool, adoring husband Carl, enjoying an amazing and sexy marriage, and having her grand kids over for a sleep-over…sometimes.

Power Workshop ■ A Vision For Your Future – Ages 13-20

Hi! My name is Sydni-Cheyenne and I am excited to share with the Young Lady Warriors of Divinely Ruthless. I am a college student double-majoring in Christian Theology and Music. Living has brought peaks and valleys, but God’s word is always true and he has never left my side. These times of difficulty have challenged what I believed about myself and what I believed God thought about me. Let’s face it, we see some pretty gross stuff in ourselves during these seasons. Take hope! Trials are the opportunity to develop good character within us. Let’s rejoice in trying times as we examines how self-perception influences how we see others, ourselves and our abilities to reach our potential.

Success is directly correlated to fear. Fears of reaching one’s full potential and living one’s life to the best possible all comes down to how one views them self. As we discuss our personal value and identity, I want to encourage you (and myself; who am I kidding? We all need this) that you are greatly loved, that regardless of the circumstances that brought you into the world, you matter and can achieve more than you ever imagined! As we live in this freeing power, we’ll dream bigger and excel in life!
