For the woman who KNOWS she was made for more...
I’ve been there. I KNEW I was made for more. I knew God had BIG plans in store when He made me, but I felt stuck. Stuck not knowing what those plans were or how to go about living a big, brave life on fire for Him TODAY. Because TODAY ((rewind a couple years)) looked mundane. It looked like working a corporate job I was less than lit up about, missing my baby while I was there, and wondering how in the world I could ever achieve the massive impact I had dreamed of and felt called to.
I dreamt of...
- Staying home with my son.
- Giving generously to my favorite charities/ministries.
- Building an orphanage in another country. Going and doing. (All the things)
- Fun family vacations without having them follow me home on a credit card.
- Changing lives, sharing my faith, and giving hope to other women.
But here I was... living what felt a lot like “mundane” over and over.
I told myself those things were selfish. I should be grateful for what I have. I have a comfortable house, an amazing family, a beautiful son, and *enough* of all the other things.
But at the end of the day, my dream of more was still there.
How could I SERIOUSLY impact other women and do the kingdom work I was being called to if I was living this life?
So I prayed. I prayed long. I prayed hard. I connected with other women in prayer.
And you know what happened? I eventually felt God calling me to start a business. It was such a scary thought. I had always dreamt of starting a business... but making that dream a reality felt WAY more overwhelming than the perfect idea I had in my head.
But I eventually decided that the “what if” would haunt me forever if I didn’t give it a try.
So I did it.
I worked freelance at first while working my corporate job. Then I launched a massive business and brand that provided me a really good part-time income. And then, I eventually quit my job to pursue my business full-time and was able to bring in full-time income working part time hours.
Fast forward a couple years... I now have launched a second business partnered with a network marketing company (more about this later!), and together, both of my businesses have given me more freedom than I ever could have imagined.
More time with my family. More income. More ability to do those big things I have always dreamed of.
But here's the thing... with that freedom has been struggles. Tears. Late nights. Loneliness.
That is why it is so important that we link arms, walk side-by-side, and discover what it means to live out your faith, love your family, and grow your income... in a way that works FOR you... together.
Anything is possible for you and I’ll be right here cheering you on. Will you join me?
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! - Psalm 139:13-17
