Hidden Gems: Meet Brianna Ward of The Sincere Truth

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brianna Ward. 

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I was going through a divorce with 2 children and rediscovering who I was as a woman. I found out a lot about the “process.” I discovered it was a huge misconception about divorce and who you will become after it is all over. I heard how easy it was to get through and get over. But that was the furthest thing from the truth. As I was going through this process. I felt like a failure. I felt like I let my children and God down. I felt like I lost my identity. I had to start from the bottom. Which isn’t always a bad thing! I started to talk about the difficulties I was facing on Facebook. I created “The Sincere Truth” Facebook page and shared my journey to self-discovery, healing, and self-love. The page started to grow quickly with women that were on a similar journey. I started transitioning from divorcee to dating, to fiancé to wife again. I shared that journey as well. I have always said my life is an open book and if telling my story will help another woman, I have to share it. One of my favorite scriptures is Luke 22:32 ESV “but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brother.” I have been very transparent and given so much of myself and I’ve gotten so much more in return. Then came the time to pivot!! I am a Certified Life Coach and The Sincere Truth now focuses on mothers demonstrating self-love, healing from their past, renewing of the mind, goal-setting, and being “selectively selfish” (knowing when to give to yourself) I have created a journal for the mothers that have the desire to accomplish personal goals and the hunger to discover their true identity in God. I am currently working on a coaching program and setting up women’s groups. 

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It has not been a smooth road, at all. Sharing your challenges, failures, and vulnerabilities with the world is not easy but when you know that is your assignment, you do it!!! I was afraid of being judged. I dealt with shame, guilt, and low self-esteem. I doubted myself and asked, “why would anyone listen to me?” I fought myself every step of the way. I had challenges of keeping the people engaged because to me, I was just sharing my story. But it was more than that. People were sharing their stories with me and I’m like what am I supposed to do with this God. I’m not a therapist. I’m not equipped for this. Which added to the “You’re a failure” voice I’d been battling with my entire life. There were times when I stopped everything!!! But just like anything else in my life, I adjust, I research and I do what needs to be done. I’ve never had a smooth road. And I think I prefer a couple of detours, or bumps or potholes. It builds perseverance, character and re-affirms that I’m unstoppable. 

As you know, we’re big fans of The Sincere Truth. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about the brand?
The Sincere Truth is a life Coaching business that assist mothers who feel like they have lost their identity to motherhood. Pursue their dreams and goals by establishing healthy boundaries, being “selectively selfish”, creating effective and realistic to-do lists. I’m the person that asks the hard questions and challenges your limited beliefs. I’m the person that helps you see that you do have options and you are capable of change. I’m proud of the space I have created for women and the journals. I spent a lot of time researching and praying to creating them. I offer 1-on-1 or group sessions. 

Can you share something surprising about yourself?
I get really nervous before I have to speak. Like hands shaking, teeth chattering, sweaty palms, sick to my stomach nervous. I call them pre-game jitters. But when its go time, I go!!! I’m coming out of that but it’s “The Sincere Truth” lol
