A few weeks ago, a Facebook friend told me she enjoyed reading my posts and liked the fact that I was not shy about expressing my faith. She called it living out loud. That gave me life! As I often say, words matter. So take the time to tell people when something they do inspires you. Thanks Patty, for doing that for me. I’m sharing your note below!
I was at a networking event last night and had the opportunity to share a little bit of how I’ve grown in my ability and desire to share my faith openly. I told the young woman I was speaking to that some of that change was a result of your influence via Facebook. I figured if you could be open about your faith in front of your colleagues who were friends with you on FB, then so could I. As a result my faith has grown. My life and faith are much more authentic.
I wasn’t sure if I ever told you what an impact your posts, either praising God or thanking Him for what He was doing in your life, made on me. I wanted you to know you encouraged me and encouraged me to grow which, as a believer, is what we’re all called to do.
Hope you have a wonderful day & keep living out loud!
For months now, I’ve been toying with the idea of starting a blog. But doubt often creeps in when new ideas are being birthed. Would anyone read what I have to say? And what in the world will I say?
Then it came to me. Speak what’s on your heart. Write about what you know: your faith, family and culture. Welcome people to challenge your ideas.
So here it is ya’ll. Let’s go.
