I am still trying to learn coding, expand my skills and see as much of this world as I can. But in reality I can't do it all. I know I can't. Coming to that conclusion is a humbling reality check for myself and my busy life.
With that, brings me to my time of bravery. Asking for help.
Ego check and a slice of humble pie for 1, please.
As life continues to progress and I start to take strives in my blogging life, things are starting to come up. Expenses start to rise that I just don't have the means to take. So first off, I ask you to join me prayerfully about this next season of my life. Many of you have heard about the opportunity that I am pursuing and it's not set in stone, yet. So please join in prayer with me over a learning opportunity, growing opportunity, and a time to serve.
Secondly, as I have mentioned above I am really striving towards running my blog full time. This would lead to more opportunities for me to write and expand my network, hopefully providing inspiration and encouragement to all of my readers. These are some of the needs that I am facing right now that I truly do not have the funds to move forward with. 1) I would very much appreciate new headshots for my blog, social media, and other publications that I contribute to. If anyone with a camera and camera skills would like to donate their time to helping me (or if you have any connections that could help me) I would be extremely grateful. 2) I would love to pick people's brain about various things in life. Travel, ministry, web design, blogging, all of the above? I know everyone has experience in life, and I am open to learning, always open for new things. So if you're one of these people and I haven't reached out to you yet, please, please grab a cup of coffee with me! 3) With new web designs I need a new logo. So friends, if any of you would like to donate some graphic design skills my way, again extreme gratitude will be involved.
And lastly, there is a blogging conference that I would be overjoyed to take part in this upcoming October. It is aimed at Christian women bloggers who want to make a positive impact within their networks, and it is now my new dream to get to go. There are many obstacles standing in my way (seeing that it is all the way in South Carolina). More details will come but I would also ask you to join with me in praying that I am able to find the means to attend and that my heart will be prepared for this.
Okay. I am done. I love you all and remember, be brave!
