I used to think I needed to be a little less than what I was. I’d wonder why God created me the way He had: prone to asking questions nobody else wanted to ask and unwilling to just go along with the status quo. *
And now I’ve come to realize that He created me this way for a purpose. I’ve seen how my willingness to be uncomfortable, to push back against injustice, to speak truth or to peel back the layers serves its own purpose in my personal life, in my professional career and in ministry. And yes, sometimes the soul gets weary from constantly pushing for change, for what is right. But what happens if we stop asking and seeking and doing? Who will speak up? Who will take action? Be there friends. Keep asking and seeking and doing - just as He has called you and created you to.. * “We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.”
Romans 12:6-8 NIV

The Bio-Stepmom compass creator begins: "By respecting another woman's marriage, I am respecting my children father and my children. I chose these three topics to respect: "By respecting another woman as a mother, I am respecting my husband and all of the children. I chose these three topics to respect:
1. You're just being who you already are with every other wife/mother in your life.
2. You are choosing based on your own internal compass which is already working with all the other women whom you love.
3. How two people set up the logistics of their marriage is not another woman's business.
4. The values a mother has for her own children is also not another woman's business.
Isn't that wonderful news?
Imagine all that extra time and energy you will have to be in what is your business. How good that will feel. How much love you will have to give.
In the process of minding your own business based on who you already are and in all the places with all the women you are already minding your own business because it would be so weird if you tried to tell your friends how to run their own home...you change the game. #winning#doingless#moretime#tobe#tolove#toshine#womeninstepfamilies#expandedself#expandedstepfamily#expandedhumanity#mom#momma#mommy#momlife#stepmom#dad#dadlife#stepdad#humans#people#yourlife#energy#choices

My desire is for God’s will and purpose to be fulfilled for @_itsmomoclock. Starting this business has pulled me completely out of my comfort zone but I could no longer let doubt win. I questioned it all for nearly a year and a half. A lot of prayers later it was evident that Fear and Faith CANNOT coexist, 😂! I want to encourage anyone who feels lost, under qualified, struggle to see how to make it work or feels that your business “idea” already exists...have faith in the fact that success is on the other side of fear. Define success on your own terms, achieve it by your own rules and build a life you’re proud to live. 😘
I find it interesting to find this picture today. #TBT. This is my wedding day, and my husband with our 3 girls in the blurred background (my step children). My perfect wedding day is still clear as a bell, but all our relationships you see here were definitely strained. I NEVER thought something could be so difficult. After all, I can get along with anyone, and love learning about people in general. I’m fascinated by behaviors and acutely aware of patterns and intentions. It has been a long, long road between all of us. Change is difficult, and the struggle is real. I’m coming to terms with the fact that I wasn’t that perfect “step-mom that I just knew I was going to be. But the one thing I can stand by is that I consciously tried to lean on the Lord and BE ME. I always had our best interests in mind, even though I felt like I didn’t stand a chance.
All this to say, I’m trying to focus on the positives and be as grateful as I can for what I DO have. God is good and has extended his grace through so much heartache. Perseverance is key, and I’m excited for what’s to come!
