EXCITING NEWS TO SHARE!!!

If you have been reading my blog then you probably know I am very passionate about supporting milspouses. I enjoy meeting other milspouses and reading other milspouse blogs...reading about the ups and downs of military life. I think about these women often and I am in prayer for them. For a while now, I have really been feeling the pull to serve milspouses in some way and have been praying about what direction it may be that I would best serve these special ladies. A couple weeks ago I was contacted by Sara Horn the founder of Wives Of Faith with an offer from the Wives Of Faith Board of Directors to serve as their new Member Care Director. (wow!!!!) I was beyond excited! How amazing is it that God has opened a door, not me. I talked this over with Jason because he understands how important this is to me. He was excited for me too and encouraged me to do it! (I love that man!)
So, I accepted! I am so excited to serve as the new Member Care Director for Wives Of Faith! I have so many ideas floating around in my head! Could you do me a favor though? Would you be in prayer for me and all of the team at Wives Of Faith as we plan over the next couple months. I would really appreciate that.

If you are not familiar with Wives Of Faith, please click HERE to link over to the website. It is full of wonderful articles to encourage us all in our journey of military life. (and so much more, just go check it out)

"wow...did not realize you would get such hmmmm passionate comments. =)
I know that no one method is the answer...trust your God given instincts and seek His guidance. That is exactly what we did...not put complete faith in a book. =)
I nursed both of my children for 15 months each. We have a wonderful bond. They are healthy well adjusted children.
You are going to be a great mommy!"


Haha yeah I had a feeling I would get some comments like that, that is why I was very careful with what I wrote!

Yes, that is why I wrote common sense and prayer, because I know that will be the biggest help, not the book. Thanks for your comment and opinion!

Congrats! I love Wives of Faith! :)You will do a wonderful job I am sure!

Yay for you! God is good! I can't wait to see where this takes you! I have not been a very active "military" wife but I am sure this deployment will change that. With a guard/reserve spouse it kind of feels like you are on the outside looking in...

I will be sure to check out Wives of Faith! It's on my list!

Nancy said...
