In 2015 I stepped out in faith and decided to "retire" from healthcare after spending 20 years in nursing. I started as a bedside nurse and worked my way up into management by putting in long hours and neglecting the most important things in my life. Although I loved the work I did and the people around me, I always felt as if I was missing something...it turns out that I was.
All Things Life started with the personal realization of how the simple things in life can and do bring so much joy. What I realized I was missing all those years, while I was busy working on trying to advance my career, was my purpose and calling from God, my family, and the joy and peace that comes from serving the Lord, the way He wants me to.
I realized one day that nothing really matters when you are trying to get through life on your own, making your own choices and decisions without the grace and guidance of God. For so long I tried to do everything on my own and well, it hasn't always worked out for the best.
So.....after praying one morning, God lead me to ask myself some very important questions....
What do I love the most?
What am I good at?
What sets my soul on fire?
What am I passionate about?
I had never really asked myself these questions because basically, I was on autopilot. You know, "going through the motions" everyday. But I knew that I was on to something because I had asked God to show me His plan for my life. This was the first step in the right direction, HIS direction for my life.
Since that day God has been leading me to take all of the answers to those questions and share my passions with others. I am now ready to do that. I pray that my story inspires you.
My blog posts revolve around God's Word, faith & family, inspiration & reflection, simplifying your life, journaling, home decor and how-to's...all the things that I love.
No matter where you are on your life's journey, it is my prayer that you are right where God wants you to be.
"You will show me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore."
