I am often asked 'how to' questions about blogging and speaking.
The other day I was having a lovely conversation with a lady and her basic question, which is the one I get the most was, "But what do I write about? ".
She clearly knew what she wanted her new blog to be about but was unsure about how to go about writing it all down.
Listen, I'm no expert. I'm clearly not an English major.
But, there is one thing I know.
Tell YOUR story.
People want to hear what's true and real and authentic.
Discretion is also something to really remember, hard as it is to believe lots of people don't want their business all over the interwebs . . .go figure.
One of the best things I ever heard that has stuck with me over the years is this quote from Beth Moore,
"God never waste a hurt.".
And, OH! How I believe that is true!
If the the stories, the testimony, of my life can help just one other person along the way, can bring me closer to Jesus, well then it's all worth it in the end.
Whether you blog or not, telling our stories is a vital part of life.
Don't hide from the world. I promise wherever you are on your journey, you're not alone and someone else has been there before.
The world might just be an easier place to navigate if we realized that we're all in this together.
Everyone has a story to tell.
Thanks for reading and sharing mine,
