After years of soul-searching, contemplating, getting fired-up, melting down, struggling, laughing, crying and whining, my writing ministry is finally born. (It’s been a long “nine months”.)
But fear no longer gets a vote in the matter. Helping others through the sharing of my own struggles wins.
And so, we begin. I say “we” because this won’t really be about me; this is a forum for us – to share, dump, encourage, learn and do life together.
I haven’t thought through how this will look; what all I will write about or how the format will take shape. But I’m not going to worry about that anymore. My wise girlfriend “encouraged” me with a sweet knock upside the head the other night over dinner to get off my butt, start writing and just be me. So if you don’t end up liking what you read, blame her.
For now, I will simply post this brief intro with (hopefully) wiser words to follow soon. It is time to nurse my aching back and contemplate nothing more than the meaning of ibuprofen.
However, I will leave you with this quote:
“We teach what we believe, but we reproduce what we are.” (Kenneth Boa, Conformed to His Image)
Really think about that. How much value do you place (or not) on this statement? Is it biblical? I look forward to your thoughts and sharing a few of my own.
Until then, choose to keep growing!
