Hello everyone, I wanted to write this unique blog where I share a little bit more about me. I think it’s important to understand who the writer is behind the blogs being written. With this being Women’s History Month, what better time to tell each of you “A Little Bit More About Me.”
First, let me say, what an honor it is to bring words of encouragement in speech and in writing. Several years ago, I came to a place of love for God and overwhelmed by all that Jesus did for me. In turn this has led to loving and sincerely caring for others. I have been bringing encouragement to others in ministry now for several years. It began in New York and now continues in Central Florida.
Currently, I co-pastor alongside my husband at Resplendency and I cannot express the joy it brings me in knowing that others are encouraged by what we get to do both in our community and worldwide via our online ministry. I continue to be in awe that I get to do what I love while knowing I can make a difference in this earth. I may not always get a thank you and I understand that this is not an easy job, but it is so worth it.
I also have a passion for writing. I can remember so often many others telling me that I should write. It may seem funny to some, but I sincerely was not sure how many would want to read my blogs. However, it has meant so much to me to have so many who have not only followed my blog, commented, and shared it; but who have messaged me and/or have told me in person how much they appreciate my blog. You may want to read my Blogiversary too.
However, being a woman pastor has not always been easy. There are some who believe women are not to be teaching or leading in church. I can give examples biblically that show otherwise. The truth is I will not argue with others over this, but I must say that I take what I do very seriously and only want to continue to make a difference wherever I can in the things I do and speak. I went to seminary for 2 years and have served in ministry for many years. My husband brings so much encouragement to me and has been such a wonderful cheerleader to do all I am purposed for. He says, he sees me doing even so much more and I must admit that is very scary to me.
There is so much in my heart to what has I brought me to this place of leadership. I can recall the years of helping in various ministries. Whether it was teaching children/teens/adults or helping in the nursery, I have been honored to do so no matter what I did in ministry. I love getting to impact others in bringing encouragement to marriages and family relationships and having the ability to teach others from God’s Word.
I have taken several years of ministry training and went to seminary school as well. It is not about the accolades as much as the rewards to knowing I can help others in a variety of ways. I can remember bringing blankets, hats, scarves etc. to the homeless, cooking and packing meals for others. To this day, there is a passion to help others in support, prayer and bringing encouragement.
I understand that I need to embrace all that I am and learn along the way. I continue to work on several projects both in ministry and in my writing. Every year, I set realistic goals that I work on attaining. You may want to read: “My 2021 Blogging Year in Review.”
As you can see, in this blog I wanted to share a little bit more about me. I mentioned being a woman in ministry. One of my favorite quotes is “Doing unto others as you would have them do to you.” It may not be like my usual blogs, but it is a little more about me that I wanted to share. I love getting to ‘do for others and see their lives impacted for good.’
After reading this blog, let me know your thoughts. Is there anything else you would like to know about me. I love to hear from my readers and perhaps I will share more in an upcoming future blog. This Women’s History Month let’s keep in mind how we can inspire and support one another in greater ways. Keep in mind, cheering for others is “doing unto others as you would like for yourself.” Thank you for taking moments with me.
