The Authentic You

The Authentic You
Becoming the Woman You Were Created to Be

What is keeping you from becoming the woman you were created to be? Is it fear, guilt, indecision, procrastination, or some other malady that holds you back from living a life of vigor and creativity?

What would it take to move you from where you are to where you want to be? Or perhaps you don’t even know where you would like to be—who you would like to be—but you’re sure you’re not there yet.

As you mature physically and emotionally, is your spiritual life keeping up or has it stagnated? Do you hunger to be more than you are, but wonder what to do with your longings? Have you learned to listen to God’s voice?

“For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)

Many times I’ve struggled when tying to make big decisions, crying out to God, “I’m ready for the handwriting on the wall! I just don’t know what to do.” However, as I look back on all the life-changing decisions that we’ve made in our family, we’ve always had a sense of what to do—eventually. Maybe God’s way of getting us ready for a change is to give us a problem, but not supply the answer until we’ve grappled with it for awhile.

Are you ready for a life-changing adventure? Ready to break out of your rut of others’ expectations and become the authentic you?

Join me as we explore ways to embrace our God-given dreams, our gifts, and our abilities. And let me hear from you. Share how you are growing in authenticity.
