What's up?! If you're new herewelcome.

I'm Janae Carlee.

And consider this my digital journal curated, alongside the podcast, shop, and daily text messages to empower (you) change-maker to discover the power of your voice, story, and personal branding by bringing you into my process of collecting the stones (Joshua 4). 

I had a plan. 

God disrupted it. 

Now I'm walking by faith and documenting the journey through my lifestyle brand, Naked and Exposed®—founded in 2018, inspired by Hebrews 4:13. 

"And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account."

I am sacrificing my scars for public display so you do not feel alone.

I'm no stranger to writing. It's my first love. Design just happened to be the career path forged, but writing is the connector. Over time my writing evolved into spoken word poetry, speaking engagements, and banging visuals to enhance the experience. My voice became the bridge.

As I've journeyed over the last four years of intentional healing through seeking God and learning him as a father, I wrote my way through it. Many don't know that I have collected many awards and published works in grade school. 

I have a desire to write many books about the process of becoming, vulnerability, and faith. We have to start somewhere—for me, it's this digital journal and social media platforms. 


You can expect consistent content inspired to encourage, convict, and hold you accountable. 

It's time to embrace your authenticity, practice vulnerability, and overcome those mental roadblocks to solve unique problems in your professional and personal life.



 On June 15, 2022, I am launching an initiative called It Only Took A Year. I will bring you along on my book writing adventure to write and publish my next book in a year. 

Next? Yes, I have two published books, but this book is different. It Hurts to Heal (2018), But Healing Does Come (2022) are collections of poetry as I wrote my way through my wilderness season of new cities, relationships, and childhood trauma.

This book is the book—my debut book. It's a mixture of a memoir and an anthology of lessons I've collected along the way. This book will be highly experimental. 

I ask that you commit to a $7 monthly subscription that you can cancel anytime, but I highly encourage you to commit to the process with me for 365 days. 

A lot can happen in a year. Where will you be? Who will you become?

To follow this process, I ask you to devote a similar amount of time to ONE task. 

Are you up for the challenge? 


With this subscription, you'll receive weekly chapter updates, accompanying audio recordings narrating the chapter, voice memos, and conversations with others on the current topic.  

This initiative is private. We'll use the newsletter threads and text message community to engage with one another. 

At the end of the process, you'll receive a digital copy of the finalized, edited book with the option to receive a paperback edition and become a guest on the upcoming podcast series to accompany the book release.  

The $7 monthly commitment will: 

  1. keep me accountable 

  2. help me fund the editing and publishing process. 

Don't worry. You can find an article about this initiative and the frequently asked questions by clicking here.

If only you knew what was possible because of who your Father is. And even if no one else does, at least show up for you! You owe it to yourself.
