Big News for the Herrgesells

Good morning Friends! 

I am excited to let you know that I you will be hearing from me more in the coming months!  On Monday afternoon I put in my seven weeks notice at work.  So beginning June 1 I will be staying home with Janie Lou, spending more time with my sweet, sweet husband Carl, and I’ll be focusing more on writing and speaking. 

In 2003 God began putting a passion in my heart to use my teaching gifts to invest in women.  As I have tried to be faithful to the calling God has given my, my heart’s desire has been to obedient along the way.  At times I have wanted to run ahead of God’s plan and speed up the journey, and at other times I have wanted to take a detour here or there and see if there was an easier way.  I have been encouraged by friends who have left jobs to pursue their passions and their callings, but up to this point I have never felt like that was what God was calling me to do.  My time at Norris Accounting Services has been well spent.  It has been my “tent making” job that allowed me to invest in women and develop a platform.  Over the past few months Carl and I have been praying about the best way for me to use my time, and we now feel God calling me to leave my “day job” and pursue my passions

What does this mean for you? 

First of all it means that I will be more intentional about my blogs and my content.  I have a million ideas running through my head about what I want to share with ya’ll, blog series I want to write, and resources I want to give you. 

My desire is to create a more consistent conversation with each of you and provide a place where we can dig into the Word and grow together. 

Between now and then I will continue to blog in the few moments between loving on my family and working.  And then beginning June 1 we will take off together on a new blogging adventure!

I am so excited to be able to spend more time with each of you.  And I am extremely excited to spend more time with my family.  God has blessed me so much in the past year and a half with a wonderful husband and a beautiful daughter, and I don’t want to miss a moment with them. 

Thank you to each of you for walking alongside me as I take this journey of faith.  We are continuing to trust God to lead us where He wants us to go.

I've been a follower of Jesus for over 30 years, and have been teaching God's Word to students and women for nearly 20 years! God has brought me through some difficult chapters in my own life, and now my passion is equipping women like you with tools to embrace your own unexpected chapters in life with grace and truth.
