Start Here

If you are like most of my readers, you are a woman who desires to experience the real, abundant life that Jesus came to offer. You want to be happy, fulfilled and free. You want to know God’s heart, develop meaningful relationships, find freedom from the things that hold you back, learn how to hear God more clearly so you can follow Him more fully, discover the purpose for which you were created, and then freely give yourself away, leaving a lasting impact on the world around you.

But if I were able to take your mask off for you, I think you would also say that you are at times tired, stressed, overwhelmed, disillusioned, and “directionless”. There just seems to be no light at the end of this tunnel of chaos, and no clear pathway to finding and fulfilling your purpose. Maybe you can identify with this reader: “I have so many desires in my heart, and find myself discouraged. I don’t think God would put these desires in my heart if He wasn’t going to fulfill them. I just want some clarity. Some clear direction for what is next for me. What really are the next steps down the path He has chosen for me, so that I don’t go down my own path and miss the life He has for me? It’s tough some days.”

 

Does this sound like you? If you took off your mask,

Do you feel like you are constantly running but getting nowhere?

Do you fear that what is really important to you gets put on the back burner?

Do you worry that you might “miss God” and His purposes for you?

Do you wonder in the stillness of the night if there is more to life than what you are experiencing?

You are not alone. All of us have experienced this. And I can SO identify.

 

I know what this feels like – to want to desperately fulfill your purpose but being detoured and distracted by both the obstacles of the enemy, and the objects of your affection. For years I struggled with the proverbial “hamster wheel” life. Too often, my busyness, even doing good, Godly things, came at the expense of my health and my most valuable relationships.

As the co-founder of Stained Glass Ministries (marriage ministry), and now as a new entrepreneur in my second ministry to women, Living Deeper Ministries, I have faced the reality that opportunity will always outrun ministry. There’s always more to do than there is time. But I also realized the answer isn’t simply to work harder. The answer comes through deep relationship with God who offers discernment, balance, discipline, and rhythm, so that your relationship with God, your health, your marriage, your family, your faith family, and your contribution to your community becomes your top priorities.

My Goal in Writing This Blog

Through blog posts, videos, podcasts, quotables, and other resources, my mission is to enlighten, encourage, equip, and empower you to walk with God and take others with you, making a difference in your world. By using God’s Word to help you develop a better you, cultivate healthy relationships, discover your purpose, and learn how to lead others, my goal is to help you discover and embark on a pathway of walking with God in deeper waters of relationship, and helping others do the same. It will be the greatest blessing of your life, to discover this deeper living and then, help others find it.

To familiarize you with my writing, here are some of my most recent posts.

Speaking and Writing

While the content on my blog and podcasts are here for you, my heart is that they would encourage you to order one of my resources so you can grow in your walk with God and take others with you. God created me a student and proclaimer of His Word, so my hope is that you would also be moved to invite me to come and speak encouraging words from the Word to your women. If the Holy Spirit leads you, you can check out my Store and my Partner with Me pages.
