Do ever let fear say yes in your life? Do you yearn to leave it behind, and live a life that means something?
Here’s the truth I want to sing to you each week:
You can do the things you’re afraid of, slowly and exuberantly–and when you do, your life will break wide open.
That’s what this blog is about. That’s the path I’m on. And I would love to have you join me. (How? Subscribing is a great way to start.)
How did I change my life from fearful to bold? I started saying yes to things that scared me. Little yeses. Like inviting a friend to stay. Deciding I’m a beginner, and embracing that. Being honest about my doubts. Small steps. A bit of honesty. A new prayer. Nothing too crazy.
But intentionally saying yes led to crazy places. Like getting really excited about Jesus for the first time in a long time. Like moving to Argentina for six months. Like finding my voice and developing relationships with amazing women through venues I’m passionate about. Like starting to feel confident that I could dream dreams and they might actually come true.
And I want to write about them for you.
Say yes to email updates once a month, along with two new resources for subscribers–an upcoming ebook and a spiffy newsletter:
I want you to find what gives you joy, too. I want you to say yes to it. Not in a way that frightens you. Just in a tiny way, a lean forward, a slight tilt of the head. An earnest, honest prayer that changes everything.
I know from experience that by starting small, starting with joy and gentleness, we can change the way we see the world. We can live by God’s power. We can change how we create things, treat others, parent. I have a secret hope: that by saying little yeses, we can do good in the world.
Won’t you say yes with me?
Like I said, the easiest way is to sign up for posts via email. Subscribers will also soon receive a free copy of my upcoming ebook: five off-the-beaten path spiritual practices for the recovering naysayer. And I’ll be relaunching my newsletter soon: think interviews, reflections, and prayers that focus you on the tiny yes for today.
Join me! Because this is a journey I’m on for the long haul, and I know it’ll be better with friends.
