Launching changes…

Today via FB live shared the vision of The Encouraging Voice and the changes coming this year. There’s still an incredible amount of details that need to be determined and yet I’m ready to continue getting this going one step at a time.

it’s coming into focus…

And that’s how life goes, right?

There’s so many things that are “pending,” or “in progress” and yet we still have to keep moving in one way or another. The most important things in life seem to escape us if we don’t put intentional time and effort into them. So here we go!

The Encouraging Voice is going to be launching website changes, process changes, and all sorts of things. I want to connect with you the way that’s best for you and start planning the various aspects of this thing better.

Encouragements. Testimonials. Merch. Social Media. Events. Community Impact.

the messy office of dreams!

I want this to be interactive and just as much about YOU as it is about me and my steps. It has to be really. This thing has to be about you and me being whatever God has called us to be and do. Stepping up to be faithful and obedient. He’ll take care of all the rest. Whatever we need, however He’ll lead us. By his strength, might and wisdom.

Let me know your reactions and opinions. What’s helpful? What’s not so helpful? What are you doing to follow the dreams God’s put in you?

For now subscribe so you can be a part of these changes and see this come alive in a whole new way. The next steps are planning the changes, details and setting up the launch dates for everything to start happening!

Thank you friend.

Be brave. Be great. Be YOU.

 

The Process in Moving Along…

Between the three cups of coffee at Panera yesterday evening and great conversations on life over the past three years I could hardly get to sleep last night.

Grateful.

Just so full of gratefulness with all that God has done in us and through us these past three years and the people in our lives that have invested and risked so much. They didn’t owe us a single thing and yet gave of themselves past such a point that now on this end of it I just can’t imagine my life without what’s happened.

So here I am doing videos now and writing and sharing my life with you. Last year was the launch of this website and blog along with the Facebook page. This year it’s been putting myself out there even farther and making encouraging videos and throwing them up on YouTube and Facebook for all to see.

Guys, I can’t edit and don’t know anything about cameras and lighting and all that jazz. However, I seem to have an abundance of amazing friends that do, and one determined hubby that went for broke and bought me all sorts of goodies and then has been on me every week to see where I’m at.

This January rolled around and I was determined to do this and learn. I tell everyone to “Be Brave!” and go for that thing that God’s put on your heart! So I should follow suit. And you get the privilege of seeing my progress and growth as this thing goes on. I’ve had tears and fits already trying to get this equipment to work (no operator errors of course) and along came February when every one in my fam had a week of sickness and here comes March already. fullsizeoutput_e.jpeg

My friend JD reminded me to just keep making the content. Just keep doing it. You’ll get better as you go along. I know that. All the growth books say that. All the great leaders say that. It’s just hard.

Pastor Jim taught today on pushing through your walls. You never know what you’re truly capable of until you push through and at the end of myself I find my Heavenly Father’s infinite power and grace every time. I want it to be by his power and strength anyhow… not my own.

So it’s coming along. Slowly, but surely, it’s coming. It’ll be fun to look back in another three years I bet. I just can’t even imagine. I would’ve never believed you had you told me this was all coming. So normal and great all twined together. Motherhood. Marriage. Challenges. Grief. Friendships. Business. New Adventures. Missions. Community.

I love how God does exceedingly more than we could ever imagine.

So let’s get going. We can’t outrun God.

But let’s chase after his beautiful glory.
