I’m not sure when it happened – but the day came, somewhere in my late 30s, when I realized this life is not about me. #gasp
I was innocent enough, I think. Raising three small children, working full time at the church, doing my best to take care of myself, and enjoying a wonderful marriage. But I could barely keep my head above water, much less come to grips with the daunting fact that I was leaving an imprint on this world – one way or another, like it or not!
I’ll never forget when it dawned on me, "I want to do this life and ministry thing well so others can continue to carry God’s LOVE, GRACE, and LEGACY forward for generations to come."
That passion has remained to this day!
I certainly don’t feel like I’ve done it all right, and like most of you, I question myself on many occasions.
At the same time, through 30 marvelous, yet also bumpy years of married life, raising kids, helping to lead a wonderful church, living a healthy lifestyle, grief and loss, developing strong friendships, kicking around fashion fads as a hobby, and walking with my sweet, sweet JESUS – I do feel like there are a few things I’ve learned the hard way, that might make your life a little less stressful, and a whole lot easier to navigate and enjoy.
That's what Sisterhood is for right?!
I pray something shared in this new and fresh space will resonate and bring solution & life to a particular situation you’re facing. #we'reallinthistogether
My heart's desire is that you live in a fully surrendered, dependent, love relationship with the ONE who LOVES you so much.
That you enjoy every relationship you’ve been gifted and you embrace the gracious gift you are to this world. But mostly, that you live to give your life away, so the many watching you will be touched with eternity.
Let’s have some fun! Talk back in the comments below.
All my love, prayers, and devotion,
