“I want to do better—be better. I want to know God more, love Him more, and trust and obey Him fully. I want to love my family wholeheartedly and I want them to know that I do. I want to be the mom, wife, and grandmother they need. I want to be a loving, helpful, caring friend, and I want my friends to know I am there for them. I want to fully live the ministry/life God has given me.
What is in my way? What is in your way of living and being all you know God is calling you to or maybe even caring to inquire of Him what He has for you? We need more than trying to do better. We need to address “the things that get in the way.” What gets in your way of real change?”–Excerpt from “Life Change that Matters” Resource.
Can you identify with any of what I said above? Yes, we want to be and do all God intends for us, but why do so few people actually do so? In my new resource, “Life Change that Matters“, I discuss the practical process God is using in me on my journey to be who He designed me to be. You can get this resource in one of two ways. First, sign up at the bottom of this page or the home page. Or if you know you get my newsletter, recommend a friend. After she signs up let me know and I will personally send you the resource.
It has been a long time since I sent out a newsletter, so I will catch you up with my family’s crazy year last year, including a picture of my growing family! I also discuss how God refreshed me. I felt kinda flat starting out 2016. I was spent in every way. God used a variety of people and His Word to get me feeling more like me and back on track with Him.
If you could use refreshment or maybe someone you know needs to find their way with God again, sign up for my newsletter. I’d be honored to be part of your or their journey. We are all in process together!
