This is scary.
New seasons tend to be that way don’t they?
While I was thinking and planning for this new season it was exciting and the anticipation made me a little giddy. But now it’s here. And the parts I was once excited about, now feel more like fear.
It’s uncomfortable for me to embrace the title “writer”. It implies that I’m not just “playing around” behind the keyboard. It implies that I have something to say and the vulnerability that’s required is almost more than I can handle.
But, I’m doing it anyway.
I’m moving slowly in the direction I feel God calling me and this new space is part of that process. I often encourage you to take those brave steps outside of your comfort zone and as I’m writing this, I’m doing the same.
You will still see me behind the anvil with a hammer in my hand creating handmade jewelry but you’ll also see me behind the keyboard more often.
Words won’t ever be able to describe how grateful I am that you’re here. Your encouraging words, your openness in sharing your stories while I share mine, and your consistency in showing up is such a blessing.
My prayer is that my writing would be a source of encouragement and hope for you while I pursue faithfulness and obedience to God through it all.
Thank you for being here and please don’t let me forget: I’m a writer.
