One of my deepest desires for a few years now has been that God would use my pain, that he wouldn’t allow me to waste it. An entire ministry has come out of that plea – books, e-books, blogs, articles, Facebook groups, encouragement videos, e-courses, etc. – and to say I’m grateful is an understatement.
He is repaying me for the years the locusts have eaten. He is allowing me to take the comfort he has lavishly poured out on me and to then turn around to pour it into the hearts of others who are hurting just like I was. He is bringing beauty out of my ash pile. It’s been one of the most gorgeous redemptions of my entire life.
My niche is, basically, women who are hurting. A majority of these women are those of you whose finances might be controlled or who are needing to go back to work after years staying at home raising children or who are living paycheck to paycheck. My heart empathizes with you.
Some of my materials come with a cost. I pour my heart and soul and life experience into everything I create. Plus, I kinda have to make a living too. Paul said, “If we have sown spiritual things among you, is it too much if we reap material things from you?” (1 Cor. 9:11, ESV) and “the Lord commanded that those who proclaim the gospel should get their living by the gospel” (1 Cor. 9:14).
However, because I understand who I am trying to help and serve, I have been giving a majority of my content away for free for years. You can access my blog and groups and videos for no cost to you at all.
To take this one step further in my hope to reach as many women as I possibly can, I wanted to bridge the divide between what I have to offer and what my target audience can afford, so I created a system (well, my amazing virtual assistant, Kim Caloca, created a system for me) that would allow any woman at any time to access SIX of my resources for whatever amount she is able to pay. The suggested tip is only $6.99 per resource, but I know that that can even be a stretch for some. I truly get it.
