About me – REDUX
I had to rewrite my about page. Driven by my New Years resolution to finally publish a book – I wrote a long,drawn out, yawn of a page all about – me. Really, it quite sickens me. Me. I’m fabulous. Look at me. This page annoyed ME. I was so focused on pushing myself to this self-imposed next level that I forgot to really share myself – the me that is only truly found in Him. The girl who loves Jesus. The girl who cries upon the very breath of His presence. The girl who is no longer a girl but a seasoned Titus woman – thank you very much. The girl who became a coffee drinker at 6, enticed by the silky sips found at the bottom of her mamas just finished and still warm cup. The girl who will dance for Him until she’s splendidly silver haired, even if she has to start her very own seniors chair dancing ministry. The girl whose idea of a perfect morning is fresh baked scones and the read aloud of the week – the lovelies cozied up around me on a well worn couch …drawing, listening,waiting their turn to read. The uber-traditional,pseudo-modern woman that chose to be a help meet to her best friend and homeschooling mama to their children. The girl, even, who cried in the secret place with her heavenly Father as He denied her request to give birth for 14 years. Maybe I was so happy to have felt released to share the story that I forgot… it was not my own. You can read more about that here.
So…everything I wrote in my first about page is true. I am a former professional dancer- now dance minister. I am a clothing designer, holistic health counselor, and postpartum doula. I am a novice writer. I am fulfilling my passions in all these areas by His grace. But first and foremost I am a daughter of the King and I am finally learning to let that title define me publicly. Wow… growth is constant and sometimes painful. The dancer in me knows well. Elongate. Stretch. Bend. Twist. Higher and higher He calls. Physically taxing but well worth the end result. Me…transformed. His maiden. I am a living testimony in process.
My joy is to serve. I am passionate about marriage,motherhood, nutrition and my faith. I love to share how the Lord worked in my life through infertility and adoption. You may be in process of living your own miracle. I’d be honored to walk, wait and believe with you. Feel free to share your dreams,struggles,concerns and delights – this is about community and our connection is priceless. I pray you’ll find encouragement, inspiration – a fellow warrior and friend to share the journey – leading you always…..to hope.
