A few years ago, I spontaneously posted on Facebook that I was going to Pioneer Woman’s book signing in San Francisco and asked if anyone wanted to join me.
I’m friends with a lot of people I don’t truly know in real life so I was essentially inviting a perfect stranger. One of my previous bride’s sister responded yes to my invite. By the end of the evening, my Facebook friend had become a real life friend. Kimberly, if you still read this blog, I still cherish this memory!
To be honest though, I don’t think I’ve been that spontaneous since. Putting yourself out there is scary. Following your heart or even sharing what’s on your heart, can be intimidating. But after being inspired by Lara Casey and recalling this sweet memory, I think it’s time I do.
The problem is that I don’t really know what my idea is. All I know is that I want to help couples. My heart breaks for couples who feel they have no hope to keep trying. I want to be there to tell them to keep pressing on. Besides this blog, I don’t really know how to do this. Maybe it looks like having a cup of coffee together. Maybe it’s hosting a marriage seminar. Big or small, I want to do something. I’d love to even pray for you! Maybe that’s it – maybe it starts by you emailing me how I can pray for your relationship or marriage, or a friend’s or family member’s.
Who knows! God does. And I’m stepping out in faith and going to trust Him to guide this heart of mine and use me as He sees fit.
Ideas are welcome! Thanks for listening. And feel free to share with anyone who might be interested.
