I just came back from a "SPEAK UP with CONFIDENCE" seminar in Grand Rapids Michigan and it gave me the courage to start blogging on this personal blog again after all this time. I'm so excited to put into practice everything I learned at SPEAK UP but I'm a little confused about the CONFIDENCE thing! Is it speak up with Convenience? Consonants? Continuance? Consequences? I hope that I figured it out. I'm so glad that we were SPARKED up with the excitement to share HIS story through OUR story!
So stay tuned if you want to hear HIS amazing story through MY story as wife, MOM, Nana, and Fill in Mom to several hurting boys.
I am so thankful for this woman, the leader of the seminar I just participated in. She encouraged me as a "far away" mentor and "seasonal" mentor when she didn't even know she was helping me.
|Me and Carol Kent!|
Three and a half years later I wrote on her facebook wall thanking her for encouraging me because I finally shared my son's story in front of 100 women at a Mother's Day talk. She encouraged me to come to "SPEAK UP with CONFIDENCE" seminar and I'm so thankful I listened to God and went! I'm also thankful that I asked my BEST FRIEND, Brenda, to go with. We had a GREAT time with other women of God and God HIMSELF! It was AMAZING!
Hebrews 3:1-6 "Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest. He was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses was faithful in all God’s house. Jesus has been found worthy of greater honor than Moses, just as the builder of a house has greater honor than the house itself. For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything. “Moses was faithful as a servant in all God’s house,”bearing witness to what would be spoken by God in the future. But Christ is faithful as the Son over God’s house. And we are his house, if indeed we hold firmly to our confidence and the hope in which we glory."
