I have a life-long passion for truth, freedom leadership, and learning. Helping women do the hard and holy work of de-cluttering their minds and breaking heart chains, is what lights me up.
I believe there is freedom in embracing our strengths and limitations. I advocate for the healing power of humility. I like to live with a rested soul. The kind found in perfect submission to God.
Sinner, saved by grace, deserving of nothing, given everything. Made to know and love God more, with each passing day. I feel the most alive when I’m growing.
Growth takes better answers, practical steps, grace upon grace, and truth upon truth.
That is what I offer you.
I could spend my whole life trying to get to know me and the truth is, you, Creator King, have done an infinitely unique job on all of us. I can no sooner fully know myself than I can fully know you.
And somehow, discovery of self and you come from new thoughts entering our head. I’m not sure any of us really have a truly original idea. All we can do is filter what we hear, see, read, and experience, noticing if it agrees with our nature or not. The nature that is so deeply, so simply, us, that we can’t articulate it. We can only recognize it when someone else does.
Can I ask you something…are you growing?
If you aren’t, I bet your life feels a bit blah. A bit empty. Kind of passionless. I can imagine there might even be a small hint of lingering guilt. Why? Because you know you were made for more.
I’m sure you are busy. I’m sure you are capable. I’m sure you are getting stuff done. I’m sure you have a big to-do list. I’m sure you are trying to do all the things you think you are supposed to do, as a woman, wife, employee, mom, Christian…
But, really, are you growing?
I believe, as women, we were specially designed to nurture new life…be it an idea, a child, a business, a project, a relationship, or a hurting person. We are inexplicably drawn to things like this.
I like to help women get untangled.
I do it for myself all the time. If something is off I dig, pray, journal and talk to friends until I figure out what’s going on inside me or around me. I’ve always been about freedom, and depth, and really living. It's who I am.
It is also why I've decided to make it my career! I like to see women alive. Alive in Christ. Making the most of their life.
The opposite of numb and boring. Because, with Christ, we have no excuse to be either.
This week, as I’ve continued to refine my purpose (Did you see my new tagline?), I’ve been thinking a lot about how we as everyday women, can be fully engaged with life, now.
I know you. The one who clicked on this link, hoping to read something here that will affirm your current relationship, or the one you want to be in.
I am you. Or at least I was.
The girl who loves Jesus and has an honest to goodness desire to be married, to be a wife and a mom. The one who has been a bridesmaid…a lot. The one who knows her worth and often wonders why others can’t see it. The one who has waited for 4 years, 10 years, 15 years…or more for her “life” to start.
You fill your life with good and meaningful things. You try your hardest to trust God. Small group here, a weekend trip there, a good job. You listen to all the encouragement from your family and friends but secretly still cry about once a week because the longing is so real and the wondering why grows on you with each passing year like an ugly wart.
