I was reminded this afternoon that when I’m passionate about something, I really do love talking about it!
A few weeks ago, a friend of mine told me about a woman I have not met, who told me about another woman I also have not met, who wanted to get together and talk about women’s ministry and friendships. (Quite the networking, right? – only in the Christian world can you welcome a total stranger into your home and feel like you’ve known her all your life!)
The point is this: if you want to get together and talk about this particular topic, I’m your woman, for sure! After all, that’s what my book, Sisters in the Son is all about — creative ways to reconnect older and younger women.
“Brittney” and I met for the first time today but we had absolutely no trouble filling four hours with chai tea, lunch, stories and brainstorming. I love what Julia Child once said — “Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.”
I’ve been thinking, talking and writing about women’s friendships for years and the topic never bores me. I’m so encouraged that women are reading my book and picking up ideas about how to bring women together in authentic, life-giving ways. I love speaking about this topic, encouraging women to take the risk and make the time to “do life together” with other Jesus-following, fun-seeking, wisdom-yearning women.
As much as I think the word, “passion” is overused these days, it does indeed describe the heartfelt joy I experience when this particular topic is discussed.
It’s close to my heart.
It comes from a core longing in my life.
It honors God and delights me when I truly connect with other women.
It’s a song I have to sing.
For in him we live and move and have our being. Acts 17.28
