Today I want to begin to introduce you to the team of women who design, create, implement, administrate, manage, and advise this blog we call He Speaks In The Silence. These are women who pray, asking God for wisdom, then use their gifts to craft beauty for all of us. And I think you need to know them!
So… for the next many weeks we’ll be posting a fun profile of who they are, what they do, what they love, who they love, how they live and lots more delicious details.
If you want to take a peak at the list of questions we all got to choose from, here it is.
I live in:
SW portland, Multnomah Village.
I contribute to the blog by:
This year, God is revealing himself to me as:
My Rock. That though the torrents of life may crash against me, I do not have to let myself be torn and swayed. It is one of the most magnificent and peaceful realizations to stand in.
One of my life scriptures is:
“Yahweh, Yahweh, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in love and faithfulness.”
It is the most compelling word of God I have ever read. I am finding that no matter the season of life, if I center myself of who God says He is, then it seems the rest of the world is put into perspective.
My Myers-Briggs is:
Something that I love to do every year is:
Get out of the country. (Or at least to a culturally disparate part of the country).
I love the change of perspective, it refreshes my soul. I have a feeling my husband and I will be the friends that still don’t own a house at 40 because we invested our saved money into travels.
I am totally at peace with that idea.
*All investors / financial advisors - feel free to cringe here.
My lifestyle, in three words:
Moving, Creating, Savoring.
My favorite question to ask people is:
What are you scheming about?
I am a dreamer and a planner, and I LOVE to know what passions people are pushing forward.
The next big challenge I'm tackling is:
Moving towards working as a freelance artist & illustrator. God has totally blessed me in redirecting me vocationally to this path, and it is the most fulfilling, challenging, and terrifying process. I am absolutely smitten. It is amazing to me that God builds in passions and desires, hones skill sets, and then actually provides a place for them to be fully executed. This is a - ‘Duh’ - for a lot of people. For me, I spent my college years and first 4 years of work in areas that I thought were ‘realistic’ and lucrative. They were in many respects, and I was blessed by them relationally as well as in skill building. However, I have found when God puts a fire in you for something, it is just plain uncomfortable to let it sit inside you.
My mission is:
Bring the Kingdom via aesthetics.
