investing.

8.12.14

on a walk.  yep, I was on a walk when I was making this voice memo. but I love it.  you never know when the inspiration is going to hit.

something I really wanted to focus on this year when the kids started back to “school” was investing in relationships.  

It’s so easy for me to work, work, work when I have those coveted 5 hours off twice a week.  I am a task oriented, planner, list maker type person and sometimes I think I value productivity over relationship.  but NO MORE.  I know it will be a lifelong struggle, but my heart wants so much more to spend time with PEOPLE. 

I am starting to see why the Lord put this on my heart, and I’m oh so grateful.  Almost every Thursday this fall, I’ve had coffee or breakfast with a different friend.  One on one.  There’s something about that one on one time. It’s so much easier to dive deeper.  no kids.  no distractions.  time set aside for that one friend.

I’m working on my “bucket list” of sorts that I made in this voice memo.  grace, grace!

how do you make relationships a priority?  I”d love your wisdom!

Hey, I'm Wynne!

Hi, friend! First, I truly am so giddy that you are here. I want you to know I 100% believe in you and all the ways you are growing towards living a more intentional life. I can’t wait to get to know you and your story, and I genuinely hope you are encouraged from our time together here.

A little about me, I’m a type 7 on the enneagram, a total extrovert + people lover, entrepreneur, connector, storyteller, people gatherer, and passionate wife, mama + friend. I feel most alive when I’m exploring new places and surrounded by people I love. Give me a day in the outdoors disconnected from wifi, and I am a happy girl. I run on oat milk lattes, Jesus, gratitude journaling and kitchen dance parties with my three kids.
Welcome, come on in!

let'e be friends

    I literally was just posting my blog link on twitter and yours was right under mine. wouldn’t you know we’re focusing on similar things today! i’m in a season where i’m craving community and that takes a lot of investing. but its so worth it. sometimes i sit down for a few minutes with colored sharpies in hand, and write actual hand written notes and pop them in the mail. i try to make sure every thing i send is encouraging…i find that just that little act lets people know they are loved.

    Wynne, thank you for amazing, courageous, beautiful writing! Just wanted you to know that God has used this post to confirm some things He’s been pressing on my heart lately. Thank you for sharing this!

    This is so me in this fall season! I think for the few months prior I forgot that even though I am an introvert I still need to connect with like minded women. In the last few weeks I’ve been making a point of opening up my home more and inviting friends in and it’s been really good for my spirit.

    SO important!!! It makes me so sad that text messages have become the norm these days. I try to make a point to be intentional with all my friendships – including those who live far away by sending snail mail and making phone calls 🙂

  5. I harass my friends sometimes… I text them and say What are you doing this date at this time. Let’s get food, let’s go for a walk. I don’t just say, “let’s hang out” but I text them with purpose to see them.

    I also try to mail cards to a few friends who are farther away and try to schedule phone chats with them during my lunch break. I am not always great at it, but I try my best. 🙂

  6. I love this. it’s so true we can focus efforts on other things when we only have just a few hours. but i’m with you… who wouldn’t wanna spend that time investing ourselves in others and making relationships better?! thanks for this great reminder!
