Released


It wasn't that long ago when I shut my office door and dropped to my knees. Tears streaming down my face.
I had only been in the office for 30 minutes. Boy, was my day off to a great start.

No. There was no family emergency.
No. I did not receive a negative report from a doctor.
No. My protective, blue nosed pit was not harmed.
I was simply in a work environment that was no longer healthy for me.

I felt stuck. I felt broken. I felt empty.
How much more could I endure? There was no way out. I prayed that God would release me.
I asked God to give me strength. I asked him to keep me covered. I prayed that God would restore me.
My confidence was shaken. My passion was stifled. I was on life’s hampster wheel. I was going in circles
but making absolutely no progress. I felt like I was always wrong. I felt like I was often judged. My voice
was not heard. I felt unqualified.

I made it through that day. And then the next day. I learned to take each day, one day at a time.
It was not easy but I made it. Day by day, piece by piece, I began to see things shift in my life.

Then, it happened.
RELEASE

I had to make the decision to release some things in my life. I had to make the decision to let go.
I had to make the decision to follow 2 Corinthians 5:7: For we walk by faith, not by sight.

What things, people, or circumstances are you willing to release in order to walk into your destiny?

I'd love to use my experiences to encourage you and empower you along your journey. Check out this
video on how I hope to do just that:

More Than Words

It's September and you know what that means....

Wait, you do know what that means, right?!

Just in case you did not guess it, school 🏫 is back in session.  

It is the time of year of growing, planning, reading, thinking, and so much more.

This is an especially challenging year for me. I, yes I - well at least figuratively speaking, will be graduating 🎓 from 8th grade and also 12th grade. Yes, lots of big accomplishments. I'm excited and nervous, all at the same time.

But I am also starting a feel a little overwhelmed. As I started this school year, I accepted a new responsibility. I agreed to read all of the books 📚 that are needed to fulfill the 8th grade Language Arts requirements. Yes, this was completely voluntarily. I am not quite sure what I was thinking, though I am pretty sure the words spit out of my mouth before my mind knew what was happening. I guess I figured that was the price of good parenting. What even is 'good parenting' anyway?

At any rate, I have start…
