I'm in Moncton as we speak, giving a talk on how to figure out God's priorities to a group of several hundred women!
I'm excited, because eastern Canada is where my husband's roots are, and I don't get out here nearly enough!
Anyway, the subject of my talk today is really about how to figure out where God is leading you. What really is important? It goes well with my column this week about dreaming the right dreams for ourselves.
But I think the problem that we as women have is that we put too much on ourselves, and then we end up feeling exhausted because we're not necessarily putting our energy into the things that God had for us. Of course we need to do laundry and get dinner on and get kids to dentist's appointments, but if we're not feeling like we're really in sync with what God has for our lives, then we're going to feel like something's missing.
Here's a little glimpse of the opening about how we sometimes worry about the wrong things:
If you're feeling like you're spinning your wheels and not really getting anywhere, I wish you could be in Moncton and join me today! But even if you're not, you can hear my talk. It's very similar to the one that I have on as my special download of the month! It's only $2, and it's 45 minutes long, filled with practical advice and spiritual insight. You can download right to your computer, or save it on CD or your iPod.
