Vision: Whenever I open my mouth, I may fearlessly reveal God's Word,

 as an ambassador of Christ cleverly disguised as a wife, mother, and writer.

Mission: I will accomplish this vision in 6 ways
1. Study to show myself approved. (2 Timothy 2:15)
2. Accept God's good plans for me. (Jeremiah 29:11)
3. Spend intimate time with God on a regular basis. (1 John 4:15)
4. Submit to the Godly headship of my husband and church leadership.

(Ephesians 5:22)
5. Be ready to respond at any time with the hope that lives within me. (2 Peter 3:15)
6. Fulfill God's plan and work in my life. (2 Timothy 4:5)

Manifestation: I will know I am living in God's vision for me when
I see people drawn to God by the written word and the spoken word, provoking others to jealousy, causing them to seek their own intimate relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

I used to think that my writing was my ministry. However, I've recently come to understand that it is simply a tool for the ministry God puts me in. 

This goal of this ministry is to draw people into a closer relationship with God, using His Word in a way that glorifies Him and edifies the person reading or hearing the word. If either of these elements is not met, I have failed in my purpose. 

In the long run, my desire would be that each person would hear directly from God, and be able to confirm what they hear from God's Word, the Bible.

Whether it be fiction or non-fiction, Christian or secular, I am compelled to ensure that all I do points  people to God, by the Word.
