I have spent much of my life trying to be perfect...to look perfect, act perfect and to have the perfect family and home. I thought that was what God wanted. I was wrong. It was a fraud and it left me empty inside.
I finally understand the good news that saved me as a little child. I finally realize how much God loves me and all that He has done for me. The gospel has transformed me.
And now I want to be REAL.
No more hiding behind false perfection.
I want to put aside my perfectionism and pride and be vulnerable.
I want to expose the REAL me. The fallen and broken me.
I want to show how the REAL, TRUE and LIVING GOD is working in this messy life of mine, for His glory and my joy.
It is time to tell the world about a God who took my broken life and is piecing it together, more beautifully than I could have ever imagined.
It’s time to tell a hurting world about the HEALER.
My hope is that through being real and vulnerable about my life and how God is transforming me that other women will be encouraged in their own walk with the Lord. Life is hard. Motherhood is tough. Homeschooling is a challenge but our God is so much BIGGER!
So I'm taking a big step of faith (for me anyways). I will be ending my time blogging here at amothersmeanderings so I can make time to be real and write (on my own website) and speak. I am still a little scared of failure and what people will think. But I am also excited to see how God will use my messy life for His glory!
I will let you know when the new website is up and running. My desire is that it will be a place that offers encouragement and resources for mothers. I hope to share more of "My Story" there too.
And I'll be tackling one of my other great fears..... public speaking! I'll be doing two workshops at the CFS Homeschooling Expo in San Diego.
Stepping out in faith and being vulnerable. Opening myself up for the possibility of failure. Pray for me!
