My glorious unraveling began in a worship service where my heart was finally quiet enough to hear the words the Holy Spirit had for me.
Through tear-filled eyes and a heart heavy with the carrying a weight I was not meant to bear, He spoke to me, “You are not my work.”
That was the beginning of transformation.
God began to work a change in my heart. One that resulted in recognizing how I had idolized my work, my achievements and my strivings over glorifying my Father and having a heart that was obedient and submitted to His will.
I had put profit over pursuit of His word and His thoughts toward me and I hadn’t even realized it.
From that journey, Kindled was born out of a desire to engage women in a conversation about one of the most important and yet overlooked intersections of our lives – that of our motherhood and our work. With the perspective that every mom is a “working mom,” I’m asking questions to uncover the stories behind women’s lives and seeking to draw attention to the signposts that point each of us to Hope Himself.
