God is doing small things through me

  1. I love this Laura. I love your heart for the seemingly less significant and how you are able to help us to see the significance and to rejoice in it with you.

  2. I appreciate your words. I’ve been writing a blog for just a bit over a year now and have heard the “you should write a book” comments too. I was just thinking today that I was quite content with my small online audience and had no desire to ever get launched into a big public platform. And then I read your post. 🙂 It’s good to remember that small is valuable too.

    1. (I just went back and read your own words on this topic… YES YES YES! ” I am so blessed to know them and to love them and to serve them, and to be known and loved by them. I’m so grateful the Lord called me here, to this. It may be a small thing in another’s eyes but to me it is the grace and goodness of the Lord.”) If you haven’t read Sensing Jesus by Zack Eswine I REALLY recommend it. I found it very encouraging.

  3. I wish I had equally profound words to share in response, but I’ll just stick with thank you for this! You and I have focused our lives in different directions, but I still love to read what you have to say. I am always humbled by your writing….thanks for putting all of it this into perspective.

    1. I am loving your reflections on teaching. I still feel like I have one foot very firmly in that role & I see a lot of parallels in the “smallness” you can feel in both places. Thanks for reading, Carlye. Our summer at DWP really gave me the courage to start finding my voice as a writer and not just a teacher of writers!

  4. YES! I cannot express how much I love what you’ve written here! My own thoughts about my writing and ministry have been following yours of late. Frankly, the more I think about the “platform” idea, the more it terrifies me. What a weight of responsibility! While I’ve always been a writer at heart and have been involved in ministering to women through public speaking and other leadership roles, nothing beats one-on-one, “living life together” ministry.

  5. Thank you so much for this. I’ve been writing for a good part of my life and have struggled with wanting “more,” but maybe here-in-this-space is where my work is. I’ll be thinking on this for a good while.
