Thank you lord that you are a God who answers prayers.
In October 2015 I had mentioned to my mentor that I wanted to share my passion for God, family, homemaking, and creativity with others.
Later on that same day, I talked to my mom and shared the same with her. I had mentioned to her that I felt like it sounded crazy to me. That it didn’t know how it was going to happen, but I knew that it was on my heart to happen.
The next morning, I got up and prayed, I shared my plans with God. I was specific about my request. I ask Him to give me a platform where I can share my passion for Him. That if it was his will, that he would lay out the path before me.
Now mind you, this idea came to me while I was still living in my fear of public speaking. I was thinking of just sharing on this site, and possibly having a small craft party and doing a little Bible study in my home. Something I felt safe with in my comfort zone. Little did I know God’s plan for me was so much greater than I could have imagined.
Over the next few months I was engulfed in my Paragon discipleship class. I was getting into my word, journaling, and praying. I was learning what it meant to be obedient, serve, and be an armor Bearer. I grewing spiritually in a way that I had never done before.
During that time I kept having a reacurring dream that I felt was a nightmare lol. In this dream, I was in a room full of women, and I was standing up in front of the class teaching the word and a craft. I had this dream repeatedly over the course of 7 months. Each time, in the dream, I was teaching women, in different settings, teaching different thing. And everytime, I woke up questioning it, shutting it down, and claiming it as a nightmare. When it was the complete opposite of that. It was a dream, more like a vision.
The summer of June 2016 came around, and I was presented with an opportunity to do what I have been praying about. I asked God to show me the way. To confirm my visions, and he did just that, numerous times over the next two months.
I knew I was on the right path, when I had an opportunity to go to China, and during that time, I got into my word and God downloaded my entire lesson plan, crafts, and other ideas for this new women’s class.
When I had my doubts, just as Moses did, God came in and settled my insecurities, and he even blessed me with my own “Aaron” to come along side me and teach with me.
God is all powerful! I give him all the glory. I am where I am today because of Him.
It has been an honor to teach God’s word. It’s been a privilege to share my passion with other women. It’s been amazing to see the women receive the class well. I love to encourage and inspire other women to see who they are in Chirst, all while fellowshipping and having fun being creative.
Everytime I sit down to prepare for class, I laugh because I’m so happy to have this opportunity. I am overjoyed when I think about how blessed I am to be able to do what I do. I thank God tremendously for entrusting me with this ministry. I give Him all the glory, all the honor, and all of the priase. For He is a good, good father.
