Dream Chasin’

Back in September, I had the privilege of attending Proverbs 31 Ministries’ Online Bible Studies’ Real Life Dreams Retreat. Boy, that’s a mouthful!

God reminded me of a dream He gave me — to be a writer. But that’s not all He reminded me of — He also gave me the dream of helping women in ministry with their online presence.

This may sound really weird, but I felt God calling me to my own business again instead of continuing the work I was doing for Proverbs 31 Ministries. It wasn’t that I was doing bad stuff at P31, I wasn’t — it was good. It was helping to reach hundreds of thousands of women, but I was not doing some of the things that I’m really good at.

Things I knew God called me to do.

So, I made a really hard decision to leave my position with P31. Last Friday was my last official day as an employee there. I struggle with the decision greatly. I’ve built P31’s online presence over the last 2 years, and it was really hard for me to let it all go. But that’s what God called me to do.

It was also difficult to say goodbye to all of the ladies whom I call friends there. I pray we stay in touch, but I know it’s not going to be the same as working with them.

Starting January 5th, I’ll be officially opened for business! I want to teach WordPress and how to do some of this online-platform-building stuff that tends to confuse people. And I want to do it from a Godly perspective.

I pray you and yours have a very Merry Christmas! And keep in touch with me in the new year! 2015 is going to be an exciting year!
