A Glimpse into the Journey

keepingitpersonal.com {aka. ME} has been on a faith journey since it was re-launched in November 2009.  Stay with me a couple of sentences while I share a brief reflection…

…from just writing The Daily KIP
…to a few random reflections on the blog
…to Life Coaching and The Ultimate Journey
…to expanding the Blog with the Writing Team
…to the publishing and release of my book, Overcoming the Nevers
…to speaking and teaching

Looking back at this, I ask a one word question:  SERIOUSLY?

I ask this question to God with joy and excitement and in awe and amazement.  I see how He has stretched me and molded me.  How He has opened my eyes to see things I didn’t necessarily want to see, but He graciously grew me through the process as I clung to Him each day for strength…

…and courage.

And now as Keeping it Personal strives to be a place for YOU to discover truth, embrace love, and experience joy — I am excited to present what is next… The Refine Conference.


The details…

This 2 day event is thoughtfully purposed to empower and energize women of all ages, from all walks of life, who share a common desire to develop and become who they were created to be.

I invite you to reflect and ask yourself these questions:

Does life seem to feel “blah” right now?
Are you struggling in relationships?
Is your profession unfulfilling or at a dead end?
Do you lack physical energy and self-esteem?
Are you feeling stuck spiritually?
Has the economy taken a toll on you financially?

IF you’ve answered YES to any of these questions — IF you’re thinking, “That’s me!”  YOU will want to say YES to The Refine Conference.
