In 2017, I decided to say “yes” to every ministry opportunity that came my way. As a result, I met some wonderful people and was able to explore my passions and gifting. Slowly, those opportunities morphed into commitments that carried me through 2018. Through this process, lots of prayer, and Bible study, God has provided me just enough clarity and vision as to what my priorities will be in 2019. I am excited to share them with you here!
On a non-Hungry for Authenticity note, God has allowed my piano clientele to grow over the past year. As a result, I have focused my energy toward teaching piano and less toward teaching group exercise classes. Additionally, Ben and I lead a life group for young couples and have stepped up as Life Group Coaches. We are looking forward to another great year of fellowship and Bible study with our couples.
In 2016, I created Hungry for Authenticity as my little corner of the internet where I aim to genuinely encourage women. While my priority is my relationship with my Christ, my husband, and my family, I ultimately have two driving passions that encompass what I do here at Hungry for Authenticity.
Evangelically, for the women who do not believe in Christ, I desire to see them experience healing from the struggles of life through a relevant, real, and radical relationship with Christ. As a result, I will be focusing on writing my book on eating disorders with this audience in mind. I plan to share my testimony, practical advice, and encourage women to enter into a relationship with Christ.
Within the church, for the women who do believe in Christ, I aim to disciple them toward enhanced Bible literacy for the purpose of furthering the kingdom. Upon completing my eating disorder book, I plan to begin writing verse by verse Bible studies with this audience in mind. Additionally, I am redirecting my course of study from Global University’s Berean Program to Global University’s Bible and Doctrine Diploma.
I have this tendency to become quite overzealous with projects. My hope for 2019 is to be more intentional and purposeful with the use of my extracurricular time by directing it towards these two passions. I first plan to focus on my diploma and writing my eating disorder book. Then, I hope to begin writing verse-by-verse Bible studies as a means of discipling this next generation of women Christ-followers. As a result, Hungry for Authenticity may not be updated often with blogs or podcasts, but please stay tuned as I am excited for what God has in store!
Thank you for your continued support of Hungry for Authenticity. I appreciate you. Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
