Sometimes you know that doors will begin to open and you just don't know what those doors will look like.

Sometimes you wonder if you will recognize these opportunities and especially if you will be ready for them.

Will you be brave?


About four months ago I was checking my email in bed…like I do every morning (I love my iphone).

There was an email from Amy, a woman I had "met" through blogging, and she was asking me if I would consider coming and speaking at her next three day scrapbooking/art event.

When I read her email I didn't know if I would say yes or no….but I did know that this felt natural and that a door that I had felt would open….was.

A few weekends ago I flew to Louisiana to be one of the guest speakers for Amy's Faith 365 event.

I was able to not only spend time with Amy but to meet so many beautiful women.

Amy has such an incredible heart for people and it shows in EVERY little detail at her event.

I know that she will have enormous blessings because of how she gives freely.

I also know that these blessings are already coming and that she is being rewarded because of her tender heart and unbelievable talent.

It was such a wonderful time to share my heart on where I have been…where I am….where I hope to go.

I spoke on our gifts, dreams and giving everything back to the One who gave us our gifts in the first place.

If you would have told me a few years ago that someone would fly me out to speak and then allow me to talk about the things closest to my heart…I wouldn't have believed it!

After I spoke I also led an art project based upon my original "Letting Go" piece but on a much simpler and smaller scale.

It was so fun to see each woman make such unique and beautiful works of art.

Amy..thank you for the wonderful opportunity of not only meeting you in person, speaking and teaching at your event…but for seeing your heart and sharing in this amazing experience that you put on.

I can't wait to hear how each of your events grow and what blessings come out of your desire to truly bless other women.

I will be sharing more photos from my trip on my photoblog all week.
