When I sat down to work today I found an unexpected note from my thoughtful 12-year old daughter💝
Her encouraging note was fuel in my tank. Getting myself out there as an author and speaker is hard work. Yet I am willing to do the work because I wholeheartedly believe people need to have love and truth spoken into them. People need to be encouraged to live from the inside out and use their struggles as stepping stones to rise up into their best self.
Plus, I have eyes watching me. My kids see my good days, my hard days and everything in between. One thing I refuse for them to see is me giving up.
My hope for my kids is that they use their God given gifts to their full potential to positively impact the lives around them. And if that’s what I hope for them, I need to do my best to show them that I am willing to do the same...even when it’s hard.
I share this with you today in case you too are having hard moments, personally or professionally. I invite you to join me today to...
Pause. Breathe. Pray.
May we remember we all have unique gifts the world needs. May we choose to use them to positively impact others, and when the going gets hard, may we remember we can do all thing through God who strengthens us. And may we be who we hope our kids will be and never give up on the path God has placed before us.
My hope is that Kate’s encouragement is fuel in your tank today too… “YOU GOT THIS!”
With love and hope,
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” - Philippians 4:13
