Four years ago, a dream came true for me. Tears to Joy
, the book describing my
journey through my husband’s bipolar disorder and suicide, was finally
published. Many of you celebrated with me. It seems like only yesterday.
If all goes well, I will finish my dissertation and graduate
with my doctorate in Professional Counseling this year. Knowing the finish line
is in sight begs the question – What’s next?
There are so many good things I could do, but I want to be
intentional to do what God wants and not what I want. At this time, I plan to
continue working as a therapist and as a professor. However, I would also like
to spend more time focusing on developing my ministry, Tears to Joy. In order
to prepare, I believe the best next step for me is to develop a prayer team to
partner with me in this ministry. I am looking for a few select individuals
with whom I can share very real prayer requests as I seek God’s direction for
God may bring this ministry to your mind and I ask that when
He does, you pray for me whether you are a part of the prayer team or not. For
those on my prayer team I am asking them to set aside at least 15 minutes twice
a week to be intentional about praying for Tears to Joy. I am looking for
people with a heart for ministry, particularly for the brokenhearted, that are
committed to prayer and fasting, to walk alongside me and seek God’s face on
behalf of this ministry.
If you are interested in being a part of my prayer team,
please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
