I have a dream. My dream goes beyond my passion with the telling of my story. God has given me a passion to bring others closer to the Lord. I am so grateful to God for allowing me to live my passion in my job every day. I have clients that I am given opportunities to share my relationship with Jesus. Yes, they move closer to him.
But my dream is the telling my story. Linda Pulver Cripps and I would share our lives with each other. We would share our stories and what is going on in our lives. We were not just cousins, we were friends, she was my mentor and my peer support. Linda would always say “that needs to go into the book.” In my naivety, I thought she was serious. But later I realized that even though she wrote, and she talked about a book, I don’t believe there is one. But that statement said over and over again planted a seed in my heart to write a book; to tell my story. My story is not about me but about how God has given me mercy and grace over and over and over again.
So this is my public declaration of where I feel God is leading me. I have made some tough decision in the last couple of months. I have felt God pointing me in another direction. This is where he is pointing me. So, as you see me make some changes, remember that I have a dream and I am taking action to go in the direction that God wants me to go. God is so good.
