God has taught me a lot about doing the next thing and stepping out in obedience over the past few years. And I am thrilled that I had the opportunity to write a part of my story for the most recent issue of Fullfill Magazine. My journey that began by sewing a few dresses with mom and led to teaching sewing classes in Haiti is a fun one to tell. (And I know God isn’t finished with the story yet).
Plus there is something so sweet about seeing this photo in the magazine layout. I’ll never ever forget the little girl with the red hair ribbons holding a dress that my mom made. Mom didn’t know it when she was making it, but I know the red polka-dot dress was meant for this beautiful girl.
I’d love for you to take a look at my story, The Next Thing. (It starts on page 26 of the online magazine.)
And while you are there, check out the rest of magazine. It’s filled with great stuff, including a terrific article on forgiveness on page six, by Suzie Eller, who God used as a catalyst to show me the direction he wanted me to go. Who knew when we sat down to lunch together at a summer writer’s conference that she would be such a blessing in my life! She has been a source of encouragement to me, and I the awesome opportunity to be a guest and talk about 500 Dresses on her radio show Encouragement Cafe earlier this year.
