You’ve probably heard the phrase “everything will work itself out in the end.” It’s a simple combination of words used to describe something larger and more profound than ourselves. Sometimes life is aligned and everything works out like you hoped, not just by accident, but because it’s part of God’s larger plan… which can lead us to places far better than we originally dreamed!
I’m convinced that is exactly what’s happened to me these last few weeks, beginning with being called to make a big request from someone important in my life about my (soon to be released) book and the following rollercoaster of emotions that almost drove me to abandon my dream entirely. So what was my big request that I asked for? My dream was to have Michael Curry, the Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church write the foreword to my book.
After finding out that he and I may have conflicting schedules leading up to the release and because he is so in demand leading the Episcopal Churches all around the United States, I wondered if I even had the courage to approach him. After realizing that my dream was actually part of my purpose, I rose above my self doubt and accepted the challenge of the mission I was given. In return, not only was I bestowed with his blessing on the book, but he actually wrote an incredibly moving foreword that is undoubtedly one of the most validating experiences of my life.
The thought of his words being the first that my friends and readers experience is both humbling and invigorating. I’ve never felt as sure I was on the right path as I am now. I definitely couldn’t have been ready to make this big request emotionally or spiritually if I hadn’t first been prepared through the chain of life experiences God put in my path.
In this book I’m sharing some of my most vulnerable stories about low times in my life and the lessons they taught me along the way as I overcame them. I offer steps and encouragement for the reader who may understand the feelings and low points I experienced. And I’m excited to share these experiences as a guided journey that I hope will take you through my process for becoming your strongest self and Speaking Up With Faith and Courage in your own life!
“Everything worked itself out in the end,” isn’t enough to describe what I’ve experienced these past months. The fact that I soon get to share my message with you through this book is divine providence and I hope that you will share in it with me: Voice Unleashed: Speaking Up with Faith and Courage will officially become available in less than a month – on September 22nd!
