Today I am participating in Proverbs 31 Ministries’ blog hop as we study Renee Swope’s book, A Confident Heart.This is an online Bible study which will take place over the next four weeks.
For today’s topic I’m writing about some of my God given dreams.
As I state in my bio, writing has been a passion of mine for a long time. Although I’ve been writing poetry and fiction for many years, non-fiction is a relatively new endeavor. I’ve been amazed at the support and encouragement I’ve received from the online community since I started my blog this past summer. I never imagined that God could use people I’d never met to help me realize my potential in Christ. It is truly overwhelming.
When I think about my dreams, more than anything I simply want to encourage women. I want to write, yes, but I want the Spirit to speak through me, to glorify God, and to show women that they are invaluable to their Maker. I especially desire to reach mothers, as I am a stay-at-home mom, and I know that this audience needs daily reminders that what they are doing is praiseworthy and significant.
I know that being a new mom can be especially challenging, and as one who battled postpartum depression for a long time I would love to uplift mothers during this isolating time. To let them know they are not alone and offer support.
My desire is to reach a larger audience and author a book one day, and plan to attend the She Speaks conference in 2014, Lord willing. I trust that if this is in God’s plan, it will happen.
