I'm closing up shop...

You guys, I want it all out. All gone. The clutter, the excess, the hurry. He’s stirring something deep inside me and I don’t know when or where it started, but the busy life and the fluff have lost their luster. In my home, in my schedule, in my inbox – I need simple.

Can I share something a little personal with you? I have been believing for a financial breakthrough for our family for all of 2018. I still am and know it will come. But not by own schemes. Not by my own pushing and pulling and trying to figure it out. I’m not interested in being my own savior. It’s exhausting and unfruitful. And I’m not really concerned with how it looks from the outside either.

What I’m interested in is laying it down. Letting it go. Bringing my priorities back to priority-place. I’m interested in Wild Trust. In getting back to the place where I use Rest as a Weapon. I’m interested in my marriage and my family being healthy.

I have been too busy, too distracted, feeling too often like I’m about to lose my mind. And I wasn’t meant to live here. Not because someone told me so, because I know it. I was meant for Peace, for fullness, for wholeness, for freedom.

This is more than I had or needed to share with you but I wanted to. Because I think someone else may need to be reminded too that you have choices. You have the power to step back, ask if this is working for your family, and then make hard and unpopular adjustments. You have the choice to let the calendar control you or you control the calendar. (I know. Mind blowing. I’m a slow learner, what can I say? Thank you, Holy Spirit, for that beautiful revelation this morning.)

So, the shop will be closed January 1-31 so I can take a break. If you’re interested in purchasing before February, please place your orders by Monday, December 31, 2018. You can also mark your calendars for these upcoming shows I’ll be at:
