Five Minute Friday {Ready}

So there's been this burden on my heart to share my faith and family stories to bring hope and encouragement to women. Sometimes I like to ignore this kind of thing.

Especially when it takes me out of my comfort zone.

You know, my writing life used to be so succinct. It was easy. I co-founded a blog that grew to thousands of readers each day. A book deal came from the blog.

And then it was like my whole writing life was shaken.

Nothing made sense. I walked away from the blog I founded and the community of teachers I loved.

Walking away is always about walking toward something else.

Sometimes you don't know what you are walking toward.

Then my writing territories expanded. It wasn't just about teaching and writing anymore. Instead topics about adoption and faith and family were growing out of my heart.

I've realized this has been a season of preparation. My heart is molded, shaped, and formed for a new calling, a new kind of work, that is laid before me.

If I said I'm not unsure, I'd be lying.
If I said I'm not ready, I'd be believing a lie.

It's time.
I'm ready.
