Faith and Moving Forward

Hi everyone,

It is funny how time flies, given that I last had a chance to write at Mother's Day and Father's Day is just around the corner.  I think the teacher in me tends to get so caught up in helping others find and fulfill their dreams that mine often have been put off.  However, it is time for all of that to is time for me to practice what I have been preaching to students and clients for years.

Twenty four years ago God laid it on my heart that I was suppose to be doing some thing big and important with my life.  When God put Curiosity Cottage on my heart I never dreamed where the journey would take me or the potential that would unfold.  Since I teach Computer Science by day, I have often wondered if I should not work in industry, yet over and over God has shown me that my gifts are to create, encourage, and teach.  It is the doors for Curiosity Cottage that continually open.

On March 19, 2012 God would change my life forever when he sent me Michael.  This man has become my AMAZING husband and helpmate.  God knew that we needed each other so that the artistic talents He had blessed us both with could truly come to life!!  That is what this summer is about for us - trusting HIS guidance and using the talents HE has blessed us both with so that we can take them out into the world.

Someone recently told me that they did not want to promote religion within their business.  For us, this is not about is about our RELATIONSHIP with the Lord.  It is about recognizing what HE has blessed us with and showing others that no matter what life throws at them, they too can use their gifts to light the way for others.  For is I deny what HE has done in our lives, then why on earth should I ever expect or hope that HE would bless our lives and our business venture?

I am so grateful that I have so many INCREDIBLE women to learn from and mentor to me.  Their stories are my inspiration and their courses are my road map!!  You should let them inspire you too!!

So get ready, because we are walking completely by FAITH and not by SIGHT, but I think by doing this not only will we be blessed, but you will too.
