In the middle of a challenging week waiting on doctors to return phone calls and too many things to do, I still have this labor of love to talk about, to answer the question, “What’s going on with Daughters of Sarah?”
A lot is going on. 7 years of hard work has been going on… with God leading, directing, moving us forward (sometimes 3-steps-forward-2-steps-back-style) and now we’re finally HERE. There’s a launch team. And if you want to apply, you can do so through November 18. 🙂 #excited! Spots on the launch team are limited, so if you are interested, don’t wait.
This is a weird blog post for me. If I weren’t so emotional right now, I’d probably be better organized about it. I hope it doesn’t feel like a cognitive dump to you. 🙁 Patience appreciated.
So here’s what’s going on…
At God’s leading, I left my corporate training job that I spent 15 years in and loved so very much to start Greater Impact. We began with Daughters of Sarah, and after the first class, people started asking for it to be done on video – it was so different, it had to get “out there.” I was completely at a loss as to how to even do that, and since I’m a slow learner, it took me 7 years to understand what God wanted. Here’s the video that talks about that (and our epic failure when we first tried it on video!) and what has happened to the class now that it’s in Beta:
We also have a “trailer” for the class that captures things women have said about it:
And next week, I’ll be sharing some video testimonies.
In the meantime (and it’s a mean time right now… prayers appreciated) I’m just trying to get through the next thing and stop crying all the time.
It’s not menopause (although I’m also dealing with that) but instead it’s fear fighting.
Am working on a post about dealing with that for tomorrow. Unfortunately, I have way too much experience right now.
Thankful you are on the journey with me. I don’t feel alone. And THANK YOU for that. Praise God for that – hopefully you feel our sense of community here, too. 🙂 It’s legit, don’t you think?
The best part? Hunkering down with everyone in the trenches, then conquering the next battle. Together.
This is one of my favorite comments so far, because it’s also why I write! LOL –
I appreciate receiving the tidbits via email, because it keeps your ministry, and the idea of respecting my husband, REGARDLESS, in the forefront of my mind.
(Just to clarify, it’s not my ministry, it’s His, and I’m just trying to be a good steward of it – I know that she probably meant that, too. :))
Anyway, you can do the survey here if you’re already subscribed: SURVEY
So far we’ve heard from over 100 people – and I’ll share the results with you when I have them. I will probably keep it open until the weekend.
I’m really excited – received word yesterday from Shaunti Feldhahn that her publisher was totally cool with us sharing multiple direct quotes from her books in our support materials for Daughters.
THIS IS HUGE. 🙂 Join me in praising Him? Sheila Wray-Gregoire also gave us permission – we’re pretty stoked. 🙂
I know, it’s a lot on one blog post, and I’m sorry for that today. Pick and choose as you have time and know you are precious to me and to Him. 🙂
Love to you,
