Are You Ready For 2014?

Leap Of Faith

As you may know, I am a Pharmacist by profession, but it was a few years into my career when I knew I wouldn’t be doing this for the rest of my life.  Shortly after graduating, God began to draw me closer to Him in a significant way. A few years later, I took some time away from my career to search my heart and follow Him. I began to learn more about myself in the process. Everything seemed fine on the outside, but on the inside, I was extremely broken. Over about a ten year process, God healed me and revealed to me who I really am. I overcame fear, shyness, rejection, low self-worth, and depression. Today I’m a better person, a better friend, a better wife, and a better mother because of the healing that took place in my heart. In the process, I learned my purpose in life. During that ten year period, I took short term missionary trips to 7 different countries. Afterwards, I went on to complete a Leadership school of ministry and a Worship school of ministry. From there I spent some time leading Worship and the Youth at a local church, and then I interned with a well-known International Ministry.

God then granted me a big desire of my heart, which was to get married and have a family.  Our family grew so quickly that it was necessary to practice Pharmacy full time. It has been a blessing to be able to work from home as a pharmacist while my children were babies, but now that they are in preschool, I feel that it’s time to phase out of my pharmacy career. God has filled my heart so much that I feel like I’m going to explode if I don’t share what I’ve learned over the years. I believe 2014 is the year to take a leap of faith to fully pursue my passion!

Here are a few of my goals for 2014:

-release the book that I’m in the process of writing

-start an accountability/mentorship group

-start writing songs again

It’s been challenging as I wear many hats at this time, but I’m trusting God will lead me every step of the way. When God releases me from my job as a Pharmacist, more of my time would be freed up to pursue the dreams that God has given me.

In my next post, I’d like to share a little more about the company I’ve started, called Kingdom Roar International. We will be Incorporated by January 1st! I’m really excited about what’s to come in 2014!

I believe 2014 is the year to take a leap of faith! It’s time to stop putting off our dreams and take action.  It’s so easy to find excuses why we shouldn’t move forward – trust me, I know!  When we don’t step out, our dreams will remain dreams for the rest of our lives. Let’s help keep each other accountable and make this happen together!

I want to hear from you. What are some of your thoughts and goals for next year? Please comment below.

With Love,
