Pretty crazy that almost exactly 3 years later my “long term goal” is my real life.
being a mommy.
and a photographer – but not for business or money but for ministry.
I never would have known where photography would take me when I signed up for a class “randomly” at church called “digital photography for ministry”. God knew! The “secret things” did and do belong to God. reading back on that blog entry my heart just leaped for joy. knowing NOW my long term goal, and the “secret things” that belong to God are now deeper, stronger. Who knows where we’ll be 3 years from now. but I know it will be more than I can ever hope or imagine.
all we have to do is be obedient to Him.
know that He is working in our lives even when we can’t see it.
he is going to use skills/gifts/passions/talents for HIS glory.
to think THIS was one of the first photographs I ever took for that class….
oh so random.
but since then!!!
God has used me + this passion to tell stories from all over the world.
Ethiopia, el salvador, Rwanda, Uganda, op camp, heart gallery, safe place, and the list goes on and will continue to go on.
because I want to use my gifts + passions for HIM!
I am excited that He’s giving me the opportunity to speak and share these passions + how we can use our CREATIVITY [for me, photography] for GOOD. for the orphan. for story telling.
I’ll be speaking on a panel at Christian Alliance for Orphans Summit in Nashville in May
getting to speak at Declare conference in Dallas in August. [a christian blogging conference!]
BOTH about photography. [well and you know the other things that my heart beats for]
so stay tuned 😉
