New Direction

PhotobucketThis blog is currently "Under Construction" and I will not be updating it with new posts for a few weeks.

I'm giving my website a makeover and will roll this blog into my new web page (also changing from Blogger to Wordpress).

After attending the 2011 She Speaks conference, I've found a new ministry and focus for my life.

Titus 2 ~ Mentoring Women ~ One Heart at a Time.

In the meantime, I'd love to keep up with you.  Please look for me on these social media sites:

Dreaming Part 2

If you haven't read part 1, Click Here.

After I attended She Speaks in 2008, I started submitting articles for publication - and some of them were accepted!!  I have to be honest and tell you I was shocked!  How could God use my words to help others? I wondered.

Next, He gave me a ministry vision.  It was based on Titus 2. The idea is to learn to live a holy life, then teach it to others. My tag line became: Titus 2: Live it, Walk it, Teach it.  Besides a new blog I started, Titus 2 In Action, God made it clear to me no more information would be given for a season.  So I waited patiently in faith. 

In June of this year, I attended She Speaks using the speaking track.  Again my BF, Kelly, encouraged me to attend with her.  But this time, I went fully expecting to receive all I could from God. And receive I did!

The entire weekend, I felt God's presence strongly on me.  He whispered things to me and I believe I gave birth to Titus 2 Ministry.  For three years, I was pregnant with the ministry, and now God allowed me to give birth. 

Just as a newborn baby has a name but as parents we don't know what he/she will look like or be like when they are full grown, Titus 2 Ministry is a baby and I don't yet know what this ministry will look like or how many people could be encouraged by it when it is fully grown. 

I do feel God leading me to start writing more in a focused way, and I believe He is about to release me into my speaking ministry.  I will walk in faith as He shows me the next phases for Titus 2 Ministry.  I'm excited and would covet your prayers for me as I wait patiently for each new baby step God directs me to take.

Has God shown you your ministry?

Unconditional Faith

"But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him." Hebrews 11:6 (NKJV)

Have you ever heard the phrase "unconditional love"? As a married woman I'm quite familiar with it. I've learned to have unconditional love for my husband and children using God's example. I'm not always great at it, and I find conditions creeping up from time to time. But those are the times when God gently reminds me to show His love (which is always unconditional) to my family, and I quickly change my tune.

I remember the first time God told me my faith was conditional. It was in 2005 when the unthinkable happened...   To read the rest of this post, hop on over to Titus 2 In Action where I'm the featured blogger.
