First, I tried to help manage my son's music career. However, I stepped back due to the direction he decided to take. I just couldn't follow him there and needed to let go of being "mommy" and let him learn how to make it on his own. Then, a few years later, I decided to take a sabbatical to become acclimated with my new life as wife and mom in a blended family environment, but the ministry was still always in the back of my mind. Thanks to social media, the network continued to grow and my immediate circle of women continued marching forward even though I stepped back to regroup and find balance between home and business. They were always encouraging me, checking on me, and building me up so I wouldn't let go of what I know the Lord gave me. There were many times when I wanted to just let go and give it away to someone else, but I just couldn't. Besides the tugging at my heart, the women who surrounded me throughout the life of this ministry wouldn't let me!
Now that I've completed the Kingdom Woman book and began the one month journey to go deeper, I realize it's time to refocus and "get back in the saddle" because God gave me the gifts I have in order to bless others to influence and impact the world for His Kingdom. I know that more than ever now and I'm praying daily for the focus and balance needed to get it right. I've always wanted to make a difference in this lifetime... not for my glory, but for His! I'm so grateful for the time He's given me to "get it together" and all of the wonderful people He's brought into my life to help me focus. Now it's time for me to step into my purpose, power, and possibilities!
