Over 4 years ago I decided to step out & act on a passion I had for moms. I decided to share my story with others. Not just a story of my past, but my story. The story I felt the Lord had given me to encourage others & hopefully create in them a desire to know the Lord deeper. The story that the Lord had allowed me to experience, live through and finally come to a place where I wanted to tell others about.
I spoke to a few groups, but not many. Scott & I began talking about how to put the ministry out there, promote it...whatever you do when you want others to know that you want to speak. Scott & I felt that we had a plan, a good plan. We were ready to go & were excited to see what the Lord had in store for us. The morning after we discussed our plans in detail I got the phone call asking me to lead Mom2Mom. Coincidence? There is no such thing. The Lord's timing is perfect. Of course I said yes to lead the ministry. It was an opportunity that the Lord used in a mighty way to stretch me & grow me deeper in Him.
So now here I am 2 months post-Mom2Mom. I think my brain has recovered from the frantic schedule I had. I have a new routine. Laundry. Cleaning. Kids. Laundry. No more appointments, meetings, hours of email & phone calls to sift through. Just life as a mom & house wife and I'm wondering if that is all there is to me now. Not that being a mom & wife doesn't keep me busy & isn't a ministry within itself. It is! It is a huge ministry! But did the 2 years leading & coordinating that huge ministry for moms equip me to be a better mom or is there more to it?
I created a real website, not just a blog. I call it my ministry website dedicated to ministering to moms. It's still a work in progress, I'm still adding things every week to it. But it is my official way of saying, I want to share my story with you if you want to listen. I have a short 5 min audio of one of my recent talks I did for the Mom2Mom Bible study. I plan to put downloads to print on it that will be useful to moms seeking a deeper relationship with Christ.

Scott & I are trying to work on a few things together. One is a book based on Proverbs 22. Also, we are putting together a study we will do with our kids first before we try to get it published on the Ten Commandments. One day, I will take one of the many outlines I have written and actually turn it into a book. But until then, I will focus on where God has put me. At home, with my family. It's a good place to be and I love it. I am also keeping my heart and mind open to whatever God wants me to do. Maybe it will be to prepare my children to go out & preach the Word. If that is my purpose in this life on earth, I can't think of a better purpose!
