If you don’t know me, nope not THE f word.
If you do know me, you know I had/have a blog called “the f word.”
I wanted to focus on family, fashion, faith, etc. Any f word I could think of.
Y’all. It was hard.
I don’t know why, but I just thought blogging/writing was this super casual thing in which I would excel in, no questions asked. It wasn’t. For one, it was awfully ambitious of me to think it would be a breeze. Secondly, I didn’t know what the heck I was doing. (Let’s face it, I still don’t in a lot of areas) Third, it is really hard to just start and try to cover so many areas. I was drowning at the thought of it all, so it usually didn’t get done or even attempted.
But, I still enjoyed writing.
Over the years when I would write, people would typically comment on and compliment my faith based posts. I enjoyed and still enjoy those specific posts the most. In fact if you click around, you’ll find I’ve moved some of those writings over to this website.
The more I thought about it, the more I realized this is what I want to do. I would be studying, or sitting in church and new ideas pop up in my head. I keep a notebook full of ideas and thoughts. I constantly feel compelled to write about the good in the world, the soul stuff, the Jesus stuff.
I prayed about it, Lord is this real? Is this the direction I’m suppose to go? Every time it was made CRYSTAL clear. Leave the other stuff behind, and let’s do this.
So I am starting over.
Clearly if you are reading this, you are not on thefword.us. And soon, it will no longer be there. There’s only one of those f words that still matters to me when it comes to the writing I want to do and share.
My goal is for this website to be a place for people to come together. A place where we laugh, cry, and say “I’ve been there too, let’s walk together.”
What this website will hopefully NOT be is me, standing on a pedestal, preaching at you. I also don’t want this to be a public diary you read or don’t read. I want you to comment, interact, and be a part of a community.
Let me know how I can pray for you. Let me know if you want advice or if there is something specific you want me to research and write about. I am in no way perfect, but I’ve been through some life. Being a young woman is tough!! And if I havent been through it, I bet I know someone who has.
I have big hopes for this website and big dreams of what God can do here.
I’m a little scared. I don’t have the technology stuff perfect. I don’t have a fancy editor.
BUT I am here for you.
I want to serve you, the women around me. I want to bring you relatable stories. I want to hold your hand and pray over you on a hard day, and dance with you on the good ones.
I hope you will find meaning here.
