Hello There… How have you all been out there in the blog world? All I can say is that time sure does fly. When we launched our website about a year ago I was so determined to blog at least once a month. And, well for the first while that is what I did. Then… Well then… Life changed…
A little back story. In November of 2017 I finally listened to what I felt like God had been telling me to do (that is a whole other blog post) and said it was time to make a change. That change meant I would be going from working part time (3 days a week) 9-5 at my Church to being a full time WAHM (work at home mom). I told them I would give them a year so until November 2018 to find my replacement, but if they found someone sooner I would be ok with that as well. If I am honest, I really thought I would be working up until November of 2018. God had other plans. In June of 2018 they found my replacement and by the end of August 2018 I was done. And with that change came the realization that I felt very LOST.
I spent had spent almost 11 years at my job. And to be honest. I loved working there. I loved the people and I loved being a part of something so much bigger than myself. But, When God tells you it’s time to move you move. So, I moved. I took the leap and I jumped into a time of unknowns. Unknown of how we were going to make ends meet financially. Unknowns of how my kids would handle being with me more. Unknowns of how I was going to run my own business. Unknowns of who I was anymore. The reason that I felt so Lost. Well, I had wrapped my identity up so much in my work that I had lost me. So for the past 6 months or so I feel like I have been unwrapping myself. Finding who I am really without the job.
It is still very much a work in progress. BUT, this is something I am sure of. I LOVE helping people. I want to see people find the real them. Not, the person other people have labeled them to be. I want people to be confident with their health (physically, mentally and spiritually). I want people to be confident with their finances. I (Lee too) want to help people live FULL lives.
So, this blog will be a place where we chat about how to live a full life with forward movement. I am not going to promise perfection. I am not going to promise that it will be pretty. But, I will promise to encourage, uplift, correct and push you all. God has so much for all of us. We sometimes we just need a little push.
Here is a verse that I hold so near and dear. It is a verse that brings me much comfort and strength.
2 Timothy 1:7
God has not given us a Spirit of Fear but of POWER, LOVE and a SOUND MIND.
When change is happening. Remember, we have a Spirit full of POWER, LOVE and a mind that is SOUND. All, we need to do is TRUST the ONE that gave that to us.
