I’m excited to host my very first Online Book Study on the blog. Yipee!
Sally Clarkson just released her new book Own Your Life.
I think you will all find it refreshing, encouraging, and inspiring to Own Your Life and live it on purpose.
One of the things I’ve decided to OWN in 2015 is Living IN my current Season of Life and LOVING it.
Hear me out on this. I LOVE my current season. I’m having a blast. My kids make me laugh all the time.
But sometimes, I catch myself trying to do too much and live a life that is not compatible with my current season.
It’s kind of like I wrote in point # 2 in the post- 5 Things I’ve learned about being a mom in 5 years–
I don’t want to let this season of life pass me by while
waiting planning for the next one.
I don’t want to say-
When my kids are older we will go…
Next year we will….
When my kids are grown we will……..
When I go back to the classroom as a teacher I will……
I don’t catch myself saying those “When” phrases because I’m not having fun and enjoying my season of littles. I am actually LOVING this season. I am sad that I’m moving out of the “little” years so fast. I say those “When” phrases because I’m a self proclaimed Type A, over the top, planner type. It’s almost the the point of being annoying. It’s so bad that I plan to be spontaneous if that’s possible. LOL. Don’t worry guys, I get “less plann-y” with each passing year. I must be getting “refined”.
I don’t know what tomorrow holds. All I know is today, this season, and what is required of me now.
I will own my life in 2015 by embracing the season I’m in and Loving it and Living it Well!
A good mentor of mine (who now has grown kids and grandkids) sometimes tells me
“All season of life are fun, no matter what age your kids are. You can’t stop time or slow it down, so pace yourself and enjoy every part of it. I had to prepare my heart from the very beginning that my kids would grow up and leave my roof someday.”
There are others who have been making Own Your Life statements as well.
So I would like to personally invite you to be a part of the book study here on the blog.
I love to get together with friends face to face and enjoy good food and fellowship while discussing great things of life over a cup of coffee, whether it be a discussing a bible study or just a girls night out discussing what shampoo works best. (sorry lame-o example)
Point is- I like getting together with friends to hang out, chat, and have a good time.
But- We all know the key word here- Busy.
It’s almost impossible to find a consistent time for us to leave our families and commit to getting together regularly to have a book study.
So here is what I’ve planned to do—–
Own Your Life- Online Book Study
We are going to do it online.
Discussion will be in our private FB group. Click here for a request to join.
Blog Posts will be once/week about our current chapter.
A face to face meeting will be planned once or twice throughout the book for locals to get together. This face to face get together might just be a dinner out, coffee at a coffee shop, or desserts in my home. I’m hoping it will be a time of just hanging out, chilling out, and building relationships based on the intention of Owning Our Lives, Living them on Purpose, and having a group of like minded ladies to encourage and walk with.
If you are not Local- Still please join the online book study!
We will start our study the week of January 19th. So go ahead- Order your book now!
