For several years, I have wanted to use my talents and passions to help people. Throughout this time, I have been fascinated with companies that create products that directly assist a person or group through the purchase of those items. During this time, my small group began reading “The Circle Maker” by Mark Batterson and then I discovered other books by Batterson, “Draw the Circle, The 40 Day Prayer Challenge” and “Soul Print.”
Through these books & several mentors/friends, I was inspired to pray bold prayers and to dream big. This wasn’t really hard for me as my dad had me reading Norman Vincent Peale as a child. I have always been a dreamer and an “idea” person so I could see how God was beginning to orchestrate something big in my life. One day while reading “Draw the Circle,” I was struck by something Batterson had written….
The Celtic Christians had a fascinating name for the Holy Spirit. They called Him An-Geadh-Glas, which means “wild goose.” Can you think of a better description of what it’s like to live a Spirit-led life than “wild goose chase”? When you follow the leading of the Holy Spirit, you never know who you’ll meet, where you’ll go, or what you’ll do. But one thing is certain: it’ll be anything but boring!
Well…that statement has been my life for the last few months and this journey helping Josh and his family has been anything but boring. I am truly honored to be used by God to help my dear friends. I pray that this product brings encouragement and strength to all that purchase. As we are reminded, “Our God will fight for us” (Nehemiah 4:20).
Standing with them, Karen
