Well, The Relevant weekend had some of this…………...
snow in October. Uggh! Thankfully we were nice and toasty inside and I don’t think we missed a beat!
In case you don’t know, The Relevant Conference, is a women’s conference for bloggers who have a heart for Jesus. Not all of them blog about Him specifically but we all have Him as our common thread.
We eat lots of chocolate and drink lots of coffee…...heaven! All of the speakers were amazing but Tish from Simple Mom said some things that probably spoke to my heart the most. Tish shared about being in your element - that place where your passions and gifts meet on your blog. It doesn’t always mean that we shout Jesus but as christian bloggers his light will shine.
Most of you know, who read my blog regularly, that I’m a pastor’s wife. I love ministry and I love sharing what God is doing in my life. I will always share about Jesus on my blog and encourage women to grow closer to Him.
But something you may not know is I love talking about make up and fashion, great hair products, moisturizers etc. I shop bargains and of course I shop for things that Moms can wear and use in everyday life.
I have always dreamed of doing make-up on women and then sharing with them the most important beauty is on the inside and it begins with Jesus. How cool would that be??
I can’t tell you how many times my Mom let me do her hair and make-up over the years. While she was sick and dying with cancer I would do her make-up and hair for her on the days she felt like it. Such sweet memories!
Truthfully, I kind of feel like an oxymoron…….Pastor’s wife who loves fashion. But Tish reminded us this weekend that God made us and he love us! We all have different passions and hobbies. My sister, Traci loves DIY and she is in the process of adding on to her house, and she just tore her kitchen cabinets down…..she’s in a mess but she loves it! It’s her passion but so is Jesus.
I definitely want to share about Jesus but some people may not come to my blog if they think I only talk about Jesus. But they might come if I share about my favorite moisturizer and then find Jesus on my blog. Does that make sense to anyone?
I’m still doing some soul searching and praying but you might see some changes in the next few months. We’ll see!
I would love to hear from you! What do you think? (I have to admit, I’m a little scared of this question)
Have a great day!!
