I had the opportunity to speak for Head Start the other day. I pray that God guides me and gives me the words to help someone and no matter how much I plan and prepare God takes me in a whole different direction. Isn't that true with everything in life? We may have a plan and have it all together and before you know it God will show you who really is in control! Even after I speak, I can be so hard on myself never thinking its good enough or focusing on what I didn't do or say. Again, its human nature I guess to be so hard on our selves but its not healthy. We can hold ourselves back from so many opportunities becasue we think we have to be better or we think we aren't good enough but the truth is we are good enough and if God thinks you are ready he will open the doors for you. He knows your heart and he knows what you need to learn and work on. When I release all my fears and doubt to him and know I did the best with what I knew and with what I had God will do the rest. Its not about me and its not about pleasing anyone but God. Today. learn to be grateful where ever you are and stop beating yourself up becasue you are perfect just the way you are and God will continue to mold you in the way he wants you to be. The only thing you have to do is to stay in his word and do your part and keep getting out there and never stop doing what he has called you to do. Remember with God all things are possible...

Today, I am finally making a commitment to write at least two times a week! There are days by the end of the night I'm so exhausted that the last thing I want to think about is writing or when I get up in the morning or wake up in the middle of the night God has given me an idea or topic I should write on but I just can't seem to get my butt to the computer! I make all the excuses in the world why I can't but really I can. Everything is a choice and its not what we feel its what we know. I know what God wants me to do with my life. There is nothig more I would want to do (besides being a wife, mother, dauther, sister and friend of course) than to to share what I've learned in my life and the mistakes I've made to help someone else. Its not going to happen no matter how much I pray if I don't get off my butt and do what God has called me to do! God has a purpose for every single one of us. Its about finding our pupose, learning, stepping out in faith and most importantly developing our relationship with Jesus. There will be many topics I will write about. I don't claim to be an expert but what I've learned has changed my life dramatically. I'm not a writer so you will find grammer errors and probably misspelled words!!! I will be transparent letting you into my life. Please don't judge me and I won't judge you...All I ask is that you keep an open heart and mind and maybe give a few of my suggestions a try and see if it works in your life. I'm confident it this messed up girl from Taylor, Michigan can change her life so can you!
