Jumping in on Edie's Random Question this week - which is WHAT ARE YOU DESIGNED FOR?
I love to talk. Can you imagine, Chatty Kelly is a talker? When I began leading my Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) group two years ago, I introduced myself by way of reading my 9th grade report cards to them. Teacher after teacher wrote phrases such as "Kelly is an excellent student, but she talks too much in class." "Kelly does well in class when she isn't talking." "Excessive talking in class." I don't remember that I talked too much, but clearly I did. (Still do!)
I love to lead. My husband laughs that every group I join I end up the leader of! (I don't take over...it just happens!) I was president of my Junior Club. I've led the MOPS group for two years. I have led and continue to lead a bible study for 9 years. I love leading and have a knack for organization.
I love to write & blog! Writing is just talking on paper! I'm not a gifted writer, but I do enjoy writing and am learning the craft as I work on improving my work.
I love to teach! Of course that requires learning. My new tag line (motto) is "Sometimes Teaching, Always Learning." It's not that I am an expert, it's that I'm not afraid to facilitate. That is what a real teacher does, facilitate the group because everyone has something to teach the rest of us.
Put together all these things - and I think God designed me for ministry, specifically Women's Ministry. I love to write and speak and teach for the Lord. All my spiritual gifts tests always point to evangelism and shepherding. So that's why I'm here!
Finally, my heart's desire (different from my design perhaps) has always been to be a mom. I love being a mom. Some days I think I'm not too good at it, while others day I think I am the best. The truth is probably somewhere in between. But I love my girls and think I am raising them right. They both know and love God. Everything else is just stuff.
So -what's your design? After you blog about it, head over to Edie's to link up. Or leave your answer in her comment section or mine.
