Hello World and welcome to my very first blog post! I won’t take time here to bore you with who I am and why you should subscribe to my blog, and follow me on Twitter (@MomsNCharge). But if you want to know more, you can find out who I am by clicking here. If you’ve ever experienced fear (you know, the kind that makes your heart jump out of your chest and makes you sweat profusely), or wonder if it will ever be possible to face or overcome your fear(s), then you should definitely keep on reading! In all honesty, I wrote this post several months ago. But that one word kept rearing it’s ugly head. So I kept asking myself, “What if people don’t like my posts?” or “What if no one even reads them?” and “What if I can’t live up to what I’m basing my company on?”; the list goes on and on. Then I came across a quote on one of my favorite inspirational pages on Facebook (CALLED Magazine), and it said: “Trust God, not your fears!” So here goes!
If you already follow me on Twitter, then you know that I’m married and have three kids. You also know that I’m a “former 9-5-er”. But what most people don’t know is why I left Corporate America, and how I was forced to quit my job when I was six months pregnant with my third child. I thank God every day for a loving and supporting husband who was beside me every step of the way. At the time, it was probably one of the scariest things I had to do. But looking back now, I wonder why I waited so long. Oh, wait…I remember…it was FEAR! Fear of not having my maternity pay/leave, fear of not being able to pay our bills, fear that I was making the wrong choice, fear, fear, fear… Well, let me tell you: God has a funny way of showing you He’s listening. Just a few weeks after leaving my job, my husband and I received the biggest tax return we had ever received. That was one of many confirmations that I was doing what God wanted me to do. When I finally learned to listen when God was speaking, I realized that there was so much more He had in store for me. But I wasn’t going to get there if I kept trying to do it on my own terms.
With this blog I hope to inform, inspire, and ignite the inner rebel that is waiting to push you out of your comfort zone…and help push me out of mine! I have so much to share but a lot more to learn, and I look forward to doing both with you. In my next post, I will tell you a little more of how I took another leap of faith and faced fear head on!
Until then, have a Faithful Friday!
Stay tuned & stay blessed,
