My Story (or at least some of it)

I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother and friend. Above all of this I am a true believer and follower of Jesus Christ.

Although, it didn't always used to be this way.

When I was younger I was wreckless and rebellious. I was a deliquent and did many, many things I was not supposed to do. I was very manipulative and had many different faces. I drank and did drugs and witnessed many different things a young person should never have to see. I did believe in God but truly thought He had given up on me and therefore I did not like or respect Him.

Little did I know He had a plan for me.

One day, while drinking myself silly on my balcony with some friends, I heard an inner voice ask me "What the hell are you doing? You deserve so much better than this!" (I believe in treatment they call that a moment of clarity. ) Of course it didn't stop me from drinking that night but it did start a chain reaction of events that lead me to where I am today.

I did check myself into treatment not long after that event and I have been sober every since. That was on March 3, 2000.

Since that time I have graduated from college with a B.S. in Geography specializing in cultures. I have found the love of my life, Jeff, and we got married on May 27, 2006. Very soon after that we got pregnant (surprise!) and we had Gracie on March 17, 2007. We moved to SC in June of 2007 and we had our son, Donovan, on February 10, 2010.

I have been blessed in so many ways. I have the love of a good man, 2 beautiful children, the support and love of a wonderful family and amazing friendships that have lasted through good and bad. I know that God has a purpose for my life and I am so grateful that He has given me a second chance at living.

I have been having some trouble lately making up my mind on what I really want to do with my life. The problem is there are so many things I would love to do and that I really enjoy doing. Jeff and I have been bouncing ideas off of each other now for about a year. I still have not come to a decision.
Yesterday I took the step in finally asking God what I am supposed to be doing with my life. Which direction am I supposed to go in? I asked him if he could even politely smack me in the face with it so I would know what He wants. Yep, I asked God to smack me in the face!
They one definite thing I know for sure is I want to help people. I have always enjoyed serving and giving to others. I am just not sure how I am supposed to help people.
So, I don't think he has answered me yet. He is still trying to get me to be patient and I have been resistant. So I would imagine He will continue His teachings before He gives me an answer. That's all right with me. Let His will be done!
