Breaking Bread with a New Vision

“Are you kidding?” I said, “You want me to launch this blog today? It’s Tuesday, the worst day to launch. It has to be next Monday.”  “No today, because then I know it is about Me and not the numbers.  When it’s about Me and not about what the stats say.  When it’s about Me because you obeyed.”

So today I push GO.

Hidden behind these pages is not only a renewed look, but also a renewed vision, a renewed passion.

You will find words that will encourage and inspire for the sole purpose of women seeing themselves as God sees them.

Beautiful.

Courageous.

Loved.

Brave.

I know you have many choices out there.  A smorgasbord of options, if you will. But I’m not here to feed you milk and cookies, but a nice cut of meat and potatoes; a stick to your ribs message.

I’ve been blogging since 2009 and went offline last year.  I decided that working full-time after two years I needed to remove things or slow my pace down and focus on my family.  One of those was to stop blogging.  I did and honestly never regretted a single day off. 

Then June 2013 happened.  I lost my dad.  You can read more about him here. God began to stir my heart again.  This time in a way with clarity and purpose.  That everything that happened in my life, good or bad, God was there every step of the way.  He reminded me of my voice and how He gave me stories to tell and that I needed to tell them.

So from June until now I did a “Jacob”, I wrestled with God.  I didn’t want to get lost in the numbers, the who’s who, how many likes or shares that I got.  I didn’t want to get lost in writing with no purpose but only for the goal of reading one more comment or adding one more friend request. 

I didn’t want this to be about me, but about Him.

So here I am. 

Let’s break bread together.
