My personal brand

Ok, I had never really heard of a personal brand until I attended a Writer’s Conference this summer (She Speaks --- I highly recommend it!). I was really challenged to discover what the major theme is for my blog, aka my personal brand.

While I’ve thought about this a lot, I’m still not really sure. I’m passionate about so many different topics. I want to raise awareness about mental illness in churches and help eradicate stigma. I want to be a voice for the down-trodden and for those who can’t speak for themselves. I definitely want to be an advocate for others.

However, it’s also very important that I point others to our ultimate Advocate, Jesus Christ. Without Him, I could do nothing. In Him, I live, move, and have my very being. I want to challenge others to grow in their walk with him.

Forgiveness is another theme in my writing…A friend once told me that she thought my brand should be related to dancing since I prayed and asked God to turn my weeping to laughing and my mourning to dancing. God has done just that --- I absolutely positively LOVE to dance now!

So, in short, I’m not really sure yet what my personal brand might be. Be patient with me as a wrestle through this. I’m open to suggestions.

Hi, Natalie...

I've been away from bloggy land for a while and I am trying to do some catching up. I can totally relate to your struggle!! That is why I have the diamond as a metaphor...they are multifaceted and so am I. Like you, I am passionate about so many things and it is really hard to narrow it down. I want to be free to talk about it all!

Follow your heart, and God will show you how to incorporate all of your passions into a package just for you!

I appreciated so much meeting you at She Speaks. I appreciate your prayers. We are closing in on resolving my husband's family drama that I shared with you and Leah. It has been quite a ride since the conference, and I've not been around cyberspace much since then. Blessings to you on your journey, and I pray that the Lord will continue to bless you and keep you, make His face shine upon you and give you peace!!!

Blessings!
