I talk honestly and openly about my experiences with mental illness, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome through the lens of feminism, fat acceptance and process theology. I also do recipe and book reviews. My mission is to spread the message that hope is always real for a better life, despite living in a world that is often very harsh.

Seminary? A Motivational Speaker?

I promised to tell everyone about how my time leading my church in worship went a few Sundays ago and it went great. I was a little nervous, but not too bad. I didn't preach this time, but I did pick out the readings we used for the prayers and confession. In fact, I used my reworking of the ninth psalm.

Today I met with my minister to talk about possibly going to seminary, because I feel like I am led to preach and to learn more about my faith. The thought of going to seminary makes me very nervous, because I get anxious so easily and the pressures of school trigger my anxiety like few things do. She does not think that I should attempt seminary and I do agree with her, but we also agreed that that does not mean that I am not called to preach. I just need to be creative. I am thinking of becoming a motivational speaker, but how does one become a motivational speaker? My minister gave me the name and number of a woman who can help me discern what Godde is calling me to do. Who knows what my future will hold-whatever it is, I know that if I follow Godde, then it will not be boring!
