When I answered the call to start this blog in January of 2019, I knew I was only doing part of what God was calling me to. I feel He is calling me to SPEAK. More than just a blog. I feel He is calling me to share truth and hope with the masses. I honestly, have no idea what I am doing, but I am answering this call in full now even though I am so afraid.
I am afraid people will see me as exploiting my child’s chronic illness for my own glory.
I am afraid people will see me as a fraud.
I am afraid I am not equipped for this. Why me? I am insignificant and so inadequate.
I am afraid I will be misunderstood, one of my deepest fears and sources of hurt in my heart.
I am afraid I will fail. I am not even sure what failure here looks like, but it still scares me.
But God says, “Do not fear for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
So here I am, inviting you, reader, into my messy life. I am inviting you into a story that isn’t finished– none of ours are. I am inviting you to learn, lament, pray, and grow with me as I try to navigate motherhood and ministry intertwined.
I have always firmly believed that your ministry is not what organization you are a part of, it is your life. Right now, my life has me best equipped to minister and love from the walls of my home. So in obedience, here is the space created to help me do just that.
My vision is for Everyday Evan to become a source of hope and encouragement for not only special needs mamas, but everyone in the in-between places of life. I believe that joy and sorrow can meet and coexist.
I want to empower you to see the person God sees when He looks at you. You, friend, are chosen, loved, and wonderfully made.
Thank you for being here while I step out in faith to do the work God is calling me to do.
Is there anything you’re too afraid to step out in faith for? I encourage you to think and pray about what God is calling you towards.
