Use What We Have Been Given


Yes, this is me in a closet. It may look like I am crying or praying but truth is I was laughing hysterically when Stephen took this picture of me in my new office last night. Yep, this is my new (unfinished) workspace😊

I came home last night from a meeting to this; a shelf in my closet. This may not mean much but to me this is a lot. Some may be ashamed of such a space, but not me! I am celebrating the start of something new. A space where I can put my work stuff in our home without it being scattered everywhere. A designated spot that says, I am really doing this writing and speaking thing and it’s not just a hobby but my work.

I have written three books, one from laying across my bed at my children’s nap times, the second at my kitchen table, and my third from a chair in our dining room. When I see this I think, what will I do from this space?! 

I know this may seem silly but to have a space that is my own in our home to dedicate to writing and sharing with more and more people is such a gift.

I share this with you in case you too work from home and don’t have a space to call your own. I invite you to join me to...

Pause. Breathe. Pray.

And may we remember that it isn’t about our external environment. It isn’t about what we have. The heart of it is really about who we are and what we choose to do with what we have been given.

With love and hope,
