This is hard for me, yet clarifying.
It's a commitment, as if I have signed a document swearing to uphold, protect, be... real.
It makes me dig deep, look inwardly for a few minutes to be sure my walk is lined up with my talk.
I'm a slow learner but I'm getting there. My daughter is twenty four and she has known who she is for years.
She helped process my gifts and talents and we understand how we differ and compliment one another.
What joy that is.
I recently needed to provide a bio.
I've written them before, boring lists of information no one wants to read. How do you talk about yourself without appearing puffed up? Trust me, there is no puffing up going on over here.
This time I decided to just go with my heart.
Born and raised in N.Y., she and the hubs moved to the land of corn, Champaign, IL. to raise their family, and cheer for all things Illini! The family gravitated to Nashville, TN. for school and work and this is where community is being built.
Dale loves building genuine community, meeting people different from herself and learning from them. One of her greatest joys is watching people find their God given talents and use them for His kingdom. When we say, “Here I am God, have your way.” That is joy.
She and her family are finding authentic community at Cross Point Church in Nashville and look forward to God’s continued opportunities that sometimes come through storms and other times sunshine.
She also talks (a lot) and sometimes speaks, on topics related to life, loss, courage and when life takes that left turn.
What would your Bio say if you put pen to paper right now?
Write it. Read it.
Is it who you think you are or who you want to be?
If not, write a new one and start living it today.
