Raleigh friends - I can't wait to see everyone that is coming to the She Found Joy event tonight at the Providence Baptist Church DLC! You'll hear from me, my friend and rectal cancer survivor, Niki Hardy, up-and-coming writer Karsyn Whitt, author, speaker, and health coach Honey Beth Wiggs, and of course, my good friend and She Found Joy founder, Lauren Gaskill. My gals from Designed for Joy will be there also so you can get ALL the Heather Feather earrings 💃 Now I just have to decide which pair of mine to wear....⁠

  • On days when my feelings overwhelm my words, I am thankful for this truth.
  • I trust you, Jesus.
  • Thank you, Bethlehem Baptist Church of Knightdale, for your hospitality, fellowship, and good food Friday night! I am rooting for you as we seek to become Jesus-driven, legacy-making women!
  • Rescue. The word itself is such an integral piece of my story with Jesus. Rescue is what He has done for me and what He continues to do for me still. He has rescued me from the consequences of my own sin and He continues to rescue me from the consequences of living in a broken world. His job as our Rescuer is limitless. There is no end or beginning to it, rescue is simply what Jesus does. ⁠

One of the ways Jesus rescued me from the fear of living with a scary medical diagnosis is by giving me a job to do. He shifted my focus away from the major threats associated with my disorder as He plunged me headfirst into women’s ministry. I teach the Bible today because it’s the only thing capable of piercing through my fear.⁠

  • I am never more starkly aware of worship’s value than when it is absent from my daily habits. A day without a few moments spent worshiping my heavenly Father guarantees that I will be reactive instead of ready to face⁠
the day.⁠
.⁠
My schedule doesn’t go as planned? A phone call brings bad news? A last-minute e-mail arrives that must be handled above all other tasks? My son’s homework assignment requires more time when I should be cooking dinner? My husband needs a listening ear and supportive advice?⁠
.⁠
Without worship, my response to all of these things will likely include a grumpy attitude because I’ve failed to focus my perspective on what matters most. Worship centers our hearts on God and helps us remember His plan over our expectations.⁠
.⁠
A worshipful heart prepares us for what we may meet in the coming day. ⁠
