I wear a lot of hats. Like, all the hats. Wife. Mother. Business owner. Daughter. Friend. Board member (of multiple other organizations). The list goes on and on. All my life I have been this way. My friends and family will ask what in the world is wrong with me and if I ever slow down. I’ve struggled my entire life to determine if I am choosing all the hats to further God’s plan in my life, or, if I am choosing them based on my own desires. I prayed hard on this loveSTRONG hat. I felt a tug on my heart while sitting in our very last session of the 2019 retreat at Bison Ranch. I didn’t want that tug to be about me or have any ego attached to it. I wanted it to genuinely be about God. You see, I’ve been attending loveSTRONG events since they very first started in 2011. In that time, I’ve never had the bandwidth or desire to step in to a leadership role. Why now? The answer - I don’t really know. But here’s what I do know; I know that I love the mission of loveSTRONG Ministries. I know that I love God and I trust him. I know that I love loving on women, building relationships, sharing my story and hearing the stories of others. This ministry has given me and my heart so much love and peace since 2011 and it is my hope that I will now be able to be a part of offering that to other women. My strengths are I will listen, intently, to anything you want or need to share. I will offer you compassion and kindness in even your darkest of moments. I will offer a warm hug or a genuine belly laugh when you need it the most. I am looking forward to what this next adventure has in store and I look forward to meeting each and every one of you at our upcoming events.
