Oh, Grace, I’m so excited to be sharing my next step with you. Here’s an insider’s look at what I’m working on and why I’m so excited about my career transition! Grace, you’re on this journey with me so strap on your seat belt and enjoy the ride…
We’re looking for contributing bloggers or online writers who would like to impart some of their own Pearls of Grace in marriage, family, career, divorce and health and well-being. (Grace, I thought you’d like that title, “Pearls of Grace,” because you have so much wisdom to share and I wanted to give others the same.) We’re launching MissGuidedMom, an online magazine providing resources to women through transitional stages in life with the help of Divine Grace. (I can’t contain the excitement anymore!)
Our vision is to empower individuals to be faithful on their journey. We aim to support, inspire and celebrate with women for the hope of a sweeter and joyous life.
We’d love it if, as a guest blogger, you could contribute monthly in one of five categories and promote the article on your website, blog, Twitter and/or Facebook page:
- Health and Well-being
In exchange, we’ll promote your website, blog and/or product via our magazine, Facebook and Twitter.
We welcome submissions to be considered in a voice and tone that parallels MissGuidedMom, but we don’t mean it literally, only that we know you have a distinctive gift to share too. We believe in faith, family and fun, but that doesn’t mean you have to drink Merlot or stuff your face with cupcakes, even though they are divine. So we hope you’ll join Grace and me on our journey together.
For now, I’ll drink to “Hope for working together…” Cheers!
Eve, I love it! Count me in. As you embark into this new adventure, I would like to share a blessing for beginnings by John O’Donohue.
In out-of-the-way places of the heart,
Where your thoughts never think to wander,
This beginning has been quietly forming,
Waiting until you were ready to emerge.
For a long time it has watched your desire,
Feeling the emptiness growing inside you,
Noticing how you willed yourself on,
Still unable to leave what you had outgrown.
It watched you play with the seduction of safety
And the gray promises that sameness whispered,
Hear the waves of turmoil rise and relent
Wondered would you always live like this.
Then the delight, when your courage kindled,
And out you stepped onto new ground,
Your eyes young again with energy and dream,
A path of plentitude opening before you.
Though your destination is not yet clear
You can trust the promise of this opening;
Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
That is at one with your life desire.
Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.
