This past week has been really revealing for me. Last Tuesday as I was paying myself from the biz for the month of April I heard God say, “How many months do I have to provide before you’ll finally trust Me?” Wow. Talk about a slap in the face. Other things happened in the last week that just proved to me that this was God’s time to take that leap and do the business full time. Dave found out that he’d be getting insurance from his company (I have been the insurance provider throughout our marriage). God has given us a peace (for the most part…not gonna lie that the extra income has been nice for us because we love to travel). It’s come out that many, many people have been praying for over a year for this to come to fruition. Everything is just falling into place.
So on Monday I put in my notice at work. I’m taking the leap. I’m going to work until June 2nd after which I will enjoy my kids at the pool, spend time to fully focus on them without feeling like I have to do emails or promote or network (i.e. multitask when I should be focused on my children) and maybe even take a nap. I’ll finally clean the house, get caught up on laundry & Project Life, focus on my husband in the evenings, spend time with God and grow my relationships with my friends. All of these have been sorely lacking lately…to my friends and family, I’m so sorry for that.
I’m so grateful for the last 9 years that I’ve spent at White River Christian Church and how they’ve taken care of me over the years. I’m thankful to our Sr. Pastor Tim who has been such an encouragement and like the big brother I never wanted. I appreciate the time I’ve gotten to spend with “the other Amy” – sharing an office with Amy M has been such a joy and she is one of my most trusted friends. I have worked at WRCC with some of the best, most godly, passionate people that I’ve ever met and I will truly miss them. But I will see them every Sunday as I come to worship and I’m sure I’ll be popping in the office every once in a while (especially during the Christmas season when there is an abundance of homemade goodies lying around).
Thank you to all of YOU for supporting my business, praying for me as I go through growth, leaving me encouraging notes & posts, and just loving me. You all are such an encouragement to me and I’m so excited that my dream has finally come true, 8 years after opening my little beading business. A new journey has begun and I hope you’ll join me on it!
