I truly believe that some things in our lives are for seasons, whether they are for friendships, difficult times, good times, careers, and even ministry. That said, I wanted to share with you all that I believe God is leading me away from this season of ministry in life – that of active PPD ministry.
This has not been an easy decision and has been, in fact, one that I have wrestled with for quite a few months now. But after prayer, consideration, discussion with church staff and trusted mentors, I believe it is time. I do not know what His plans are at this point, but I know that this door is closing and I eagerly look forward to the next, whatever that may be.
Just in the past months I have witnessed God raise up several women in Christian PPD advocacy to minister to hurting moms from a Christian perspective through blogs, discussions, books, etc. It is SO encouraging to me! God is amazing in how He works and heals. For myself, I have learned so much, been so blessed, and ultimately the healing that comes from ministering to others is beyond words.
I encourage all of you to continue on and forward, living out 2 Corinthians 1:3-7:
3Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. 5For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows. 6If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. 7And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.
The website will remain as is and maintained for now, as a static resource of sorts. All blog posts will remain up, but I will no longer be posting any new blog posts unless they are from guest writers, and I will most likely put those as articles on the main site as well, anyhow. You are welcome to contact me via email with any questions or heart concerns, I am still available in that way!
Off to cry some more tears…love you all!
