Welcome to Footprints of Inspiration and thanks for stopping by!
I started my blogging journey by way of a chronic illness. You see, I spent over 6 1/2 years living with chronic migraines. Most days it took everything I had to “put one foot in front of the other.” In the midst of this struggle, my relationship with Jesus grew stronger, and I now see that everything I’ve been through has been for a reason – so that I can encourage others, no matter what’s going on in their lives, to keep moving forward….to help inspire others through Jesus, a thankful heart, and a creative outlet.
I’m ecstatic to say that after years of suffering from this debilitating illness, I found a doctor who listened and was willing to “think outside the box.” After a hysterectomy, I’m living my life again! The migraines aren’t completely gone, but I have definitely gotten my life back and am so very grateful.
I have two boys and am married to the love of my life. It was because of them, my family, some amazing friends, and most of all, Jesus, that I was able to continue moving forward.
You don’t need to have a chronic illness to hang out with me. We all live in this difficult world and have to make a choice each and every day to focus on what we have to be thankful for rather than all the challenges we face.
Oh don’t get me wrong….it’s not easy. I’m a work in progress, but I know that together we can help each other through the difficult times, come out stronger for it, and even learn to thank God for every teaching moment we’ve been through.
Because of my journey and the many struggles I’ve encountered, I’m living my life more intentionally, and my passion is to help you do the same thing.
Before my struggles, I didn’t know how to go about this. I was too busy raising kids and just checking off the boxes to get to the end of the day where I poured myself into bed and thought, “I did nothing today that got me closer to my dreams. Guess I’ll try again tomorrow.” Sound familiar?
I’m now taking those dreams and turning them into goals! And even better…. I’m actually accomplishing those goals for the first time in my life. I told myself that when I started figuring out how to make these changes in my life, I would help others, like you, do the same thing.
In fact, I’ve got a free e-course, Conquering Your Goals – Turning your dreams into actionable steps, to help you start living a more intentional life and learn how to live out your own dreams. You can get started today by enrolling below!
So grab your favorite beverage, a comfy chair, and spend some time with me. Together we can begin living a life that we can be proud of.
