i want to write and teach.

I have a really good life. But sometimes I find that there is a part of myself just waiting to burst out–to use an overly-used but really perfect metaphor–like a butterfly from a cocoon. Like I’m *this* close to being who I really am, who God made me to be.

I’m an overachiever by nature. I figured out really early on in life that people would like me if I was smart or could do something for them. (And yes, I have addressed this issue in my life.) Sometimes I work hard at attempting to slack off in some things simply so I can have a moment to breathe. At any rate. At the risk of disappointing myself by falling short of the goal I am about to make, I think it would be good anyway.

I’m going to write a blog post at least once a week for the next 3 months about something I learned that week and think someone else  out there in cyberspace (do people still use that word? maybe I should be cool and say ‘interwebs’ instead) might need/want to know too.

So for this first post, today I learned (again) that it is important to be true to yourself and to who you are. This requires knowing yourself, which is of course a sometimes difficult and tricky lifelong process. I also believe it requires knowing God and where you stand with Him, because who you are in Christ is what it all boils down to at the end of the day. All your uniqueness and giftedness is held together with that glue, because even if you can’t DO anything you still have an identity in Him.best binary options no deposit bonusкрупные рекламные агентства спбкилиманджаро находится

  1. ashley – there are tons of us out here that will be encouraged and can learn from your lessons. Write it. Teach it.
    I see that you went to seminary and that you’re involved in youth. There are outlets to write and teach what you’ve learned – teach it to youth pastors that don’t have as much training as you. Train them and write where they are – let me know if you’re interested.
