The truth is, this experience of entrepreneurship causes me to be on my knees. I have to be in tune with the Holy Spirit for His plan and strategy for my life. And I have to believe that there is fruit on the other side of the pruning, sewing and investing that will eventually match my faith journey. Because I have yet to see that, and I have been deeply hurt by the wait.
There is Purpose in the Process
This weekend I prepared to share the story of my career, and how in hindsight I can see patterns that emerged. Though I didn’t get to share my journey in its entirety (I am rescheduled to do so at a later date), I decided to share on this here blog for those who may be… Continue reading There is Purpose in the Process
I was walking with a friend outside. It was midday summer; perfect and sunny. We had just come from lunch where we had the benefit of eating outside. The venue allowed dogs because we happened to be in a “dog city” so folks were happily bringing their dogs to this particular restaurant. My friend is… Continue reading Unparalleled Peace
I’ve always known I would one day start my own business. I just didn’t know when or even what it would be but it was something that stayed in the back of my mind as a “one day” thing. Then “one day came”. After my fourth season of unemployment and about 9 months of waiting,… Continue reading Kingdom Business
I stood in one of my favorite places. Panera. Not sure why but I’ve always found comfort in its wooden booths, warm fire place, and doughy aromas. At least, I have since grad school. This particular location was truly a reminder of my time in school because it was the very one I often visited… Continue reading Panera

Our change in the seasons in nature are an indication of that. That being said, if such a thing exists then I am a recipient of… Continue reading New Job, New Book, New Seasons!
Learning Resilience, Getting Unstuck
Can I share something with you? I tend to get “stuck”. This is something I didn’t realize about myself until this season but it’s true. I get stuck on songs. My roommate can attest to this as I will put a song on repeat in a minute! I LOVE listening to the same song over… Continue reading Learning Resilience, Getting Unstuck
These Things Take Time
As many of you know I finally have an open door in my career (hallelujiah). That open door did not look at ALL the way I expected it to and yet it still met so many desires of my heart! For years I wondered about my calling in business, particularly Accounting. My past is laced… Continue reading These Things Take Time
This New Season
He comes over to my desk and updates me on things to do. I realize quickly I need to take notes but there isn’t time so I take notes in my head. I think about waitresses and how you know the really good ones are the ones who don’t need to write anything down. I… Continue reading This New Season
Update On This Tax Season
This past Saturday was my last day as a Tax Professional at Liberty Tax. I’m just glad I made it through til the end! I was actually looking for a full time gig when I stumbled across the job opening which was only part-time. But I’ve been trying to get more experience in the Accounting field… Continue reading Update On This Tax Season
