How are you growing in new ways? What things are causing you to grow?

I’ve been learning and growing a lot this year in many different ways. One of the things I have been doing is listening to podcasts. It’s opened a whole new world for me! I’m amazed at what you can learn in a 30 min - 1hr podcast.

Also I’ve been growing in my faith and my walk with God. I have been learning a lot of new and different things at church and in my small groups. I have also been stepping out more in practical ways.

What is something you’re being intentional about in 2019?

Things I have been intentional about in 2019 include:

  • The people I have been surrounding myself with.

  • Selfcare! I have been setting time aside to do things for me and try new things.

  • Boundaries baby! I’m learning about having good and healthy boundaries in life—with friends mostly—and in some other areas of my life too. It’s the best thing I have ever done.

How would your best friend describe you?

Caring, loyal, creative, hard-working, and generous.

What is your favorite quote?

“The best things in life are the people we love, the places you've been, and the memories you've made along the way.”

What is something you’re passionate about?

I’m passionate about helping other people, trying to make a difference in the lives of others. I’m also super creative so I love to express myself by crafting. I love to make cards , jewellery, and other things.

If you could take a year-long sabbatical, what would you do?

This would be so much fun! I would love to be able to travel to many different places in the world and go on missions trips to help people in need. Some of the places I would love to explore are Africa, Cambodia, New Zealand, and London.

I’m igniting my wildfire by…

Surrounding myself with productive and strong women in my life!
