Congratulations, you have made it to 2021!!! I almost feel like I am saying this as if you have survived the Hunger Games. This past year has not been short of surprises, heartaches, blessings, family time, and so much more. Here at Women Soaring we believe so strongly that God has been moving in HUGE ways. Each one of our families experienced our own hardships, and have been able to see the blessing through those hard times. Some of these times has have truly been pure heartache. God has been with us through that. If you are reading and thinking you have not experienced any kind of peace through this, I want to share some scripture with you that reveals how you can. And if you are not a believer, it would be an absolute honor to share and talk with you.
Philippians 4:4-9 says, “Rejoice in the Lord always; again, I will say, rejoice! Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
“Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.”
I have attached my family’s 2020 testimony. This past year had many unknowns for our family, and we truly only scratched the surface. We want this scripture to resonate with others, and sometimes through a testimony that can help. Here is our testimony for the year:
Now onto BIG changes for Women Soaring!!
Earlier in the year we had canceled our Flourish conference, BUT that didn’t stop us. We did a webinar and then did a small in-person Conference for Victory in the fall. God has been moving and helping guide us in each next step. This year is no exception. We boldly believe God has a big plan for Women Soaring, and we are continuing to move forward. So, what are some of these big plans?!?
First, we now have an overarching name that Women Soaring is under. You may have started to see it, ‘The Interruptible Life.’ We believe in living a life for God and many times, if not most, that means our plans are interrupted for HIS.
“In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.” (Proverbs 16:9).
“Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.” (Proverbs 19:21).
We are not going to cater to only military spouses, but for all women, especially those that live a life-style that is interrupted a bunch. This can be lifestyles including but not limited to missionaries, first responders, pilot spouses, medical professionals, truckers’ wives, you get the point. We want to bridge the gap of these unique lifestyles for the women, their marriages, and their families. We would love for you to share about Women Soaring with others.
Second, we are so excited to be switching our website over and becoming a membership site. The BEST part is that YOU choose the amount. If you can only afford $1 a month, great! If you can manage $5, $10, $15, etc., GREAT!! Your support is what keeps us going. We will have more content, Bible Studies, Testimonies, Conferences, Homeschool Resources and MORE! It won’t only be our content, but we will collaborate with others as well. WE ARE SO EXCITED!
If the membership is not what you would like to do at first, there is always an à la carte option of purchasing certain materials. We make our content usable to be able to run a small group out of your home or online through Zoom or similar platforms, or even a conference out of your church. We will have personal videos sharing God’s glory, hope and truth even when it feels hopeless. Much of the bonus materials are for members though, so we would LOVE to see you in there!
There is also a community portion on there where you can get support and create relationships with others and the Women Soaring team. We are all about community, and this is definitely one of our favorite parts!
Be on the lookout for our LAUNCH later this month!
We absolutely love being a support system, and believe in rising up as one! This means we are always looking for women who love to write, teach, help in the backgrounds of running Women Soaring. If you want to be a part of it, please let us know. You can contact us through facebook, our website, or Instagram.
Although 2020 looked nothing like most of us could ever have imagined, I have loved seeing families unite and have more time, even through the crazy teaching from home and juggling to find that quiet spot in our house.
I pray that You have Your covering over her home, mind, children, and relationships. Guide her every step and keep her of sound mind, knowing who the one true God is. The one who loves her, guides her and protects her. I pray Your peace over her. A peace only You can give. I pray a year of abundance and growth in her personal walk with you God. You are mighty and have mighty plans for her. We love You!
In Jesus’ name,
LET’S DO THIS 2021!
