#write31days

Thursday, September 29, 2016




For the next 31 days I am challenging myself to not simply plan something, but execute something. To let go of my anxieties or fears and be strong enough to get started. My heart and soul wants to encourage others, to travel on a journey with others, to show others how we can do real life alongside one another.

Praying through what to write about, all I heard was silence. (Insert frustration and fear). Determined not to give up I prayed. Journaled. I heard two words in the carpool line waiting to grab my boys.

Intentional.
Authentic.

Scrambling for paper in my purse because let's face it, I would forget as soon as the boys jumped in the car, I wrote as quickly as I could. Words came. Topics came. Ideas flowed. I was excited about what God had simply revealed to me. If I am honest, I was a little nervous too. Each day will hold something new, all stemming at its core of being intentionally authentic. Expect weekly challenges. Topics about embracing who you are and what we are designed for in community. I am thrilled to have you here. Thrilled to walk with you. Thrilled to see what God reveals as we explore what it means to live INTENTIONALLY AUTHENTIC.

  3. oh, I cannot wait to read this. My month of writing is on living intentionally. I chose the word "intentional" as my word for the year and while I haven't done the greatest job at it, I thought writing about it would re-stir it in me! So glad there are others on the same theme.
