Upcoming Web Maintenance

Hey everyone! 
Some of you may have noticed that there wasn’t a new blog article this week.

Well, That’s because I am starting to make some changes (Don’t worry, they’re good changes!) to the blog and ministry, and I am going to be taking the month of December and first week (Maybe two) of January to get everything done! 

Now, all this being said, if you watch our social media Pages (Facebook and Instagram) each week, I will be posting some of my favorite articles that I’ve done in the past-some might be older, some might be newer! 

As well, later in the month or the beginning of next if our social media sites seem to be glitching or anything, it is because we are working on them as well!

I am so excited for you all to see the changes God has been directing us to make, and I am sure you won’t be disappointed!

Coming Changes

coming changes

Over the last couple of months, I haven’t been as busy on here as I could (and should) have been. In fact, I’ve had a few people notice as much and ask me what was going on.

Well, it’s actually been getting quite busy for me-summer always does! But, aside from that there have been some other changes and decisions that have taken the forefront of my mind.

Over the last couple of months or so, I’ve actually been feeling God shift some things with this ministry. I’ve been feeling things change for a while now, but I haven’t been sure exactly what those things were or how things were going to change with it. 

So, I’ve just been taking a little extra time to think and pray over these unidentified changes. Until recently…

You see, I’m not a sit-behind-a-computer-ministry kind of person (don’t get me wrong, I LOVE doing this, but it’s just not the true me). I’m a go-getter. I want to do. I want to be the physical hands and feet of Jesus. Getting right in the midst of things. Getting my hand dirty. (Growing up on a farm has that effect!) And lately, I’ve just been restless. knowing that I’m not living up to the full ministerial potential that God has put in me. Basically I miss physical interactive ministry.

Let me explain myself better; I’ve always been ‘mission minded’. I would go to church and hear big talk about the need and call to go out into the community and reach out to them, but when that didn’t happen, to say the least, I would quite get fired up. When I was in high school, I tried getting my youth group to do some sort of outreach in the high school. Something simple like giving candy bags out to the students during lunch break. Just getting the church youth doing something that would open up the doors to share Jesus with the community youth.

But, none of the adults that were involved with the church youth wanted to do that-or they just didn’t have the time to do it. 

Here’s the reason I’m telling you this. I’ve been praying over Unfading Beauty Ministries a lot lately, asking God where he wants it to go, and he has reminded me that the goal wasn’t to sit here and type ice words and nothing else. The goal of Unfading Beauty Ministries has always been-and will always be-to go and reach people for Christ. 

By this point, you’re probably wondering why I’m telling you this. Well, I write this because I want you to be aware of some of the changes that are going to be coming up.

First is a new website (hopefully we’ll have it launched by early to mid September). A new season of new changes calls for a new, fresh look!

Second is being more focused on doing more physical ministry. I’m praying that God will open up the doors for me to do more speaking engagements (if you’re interested in having me speak at your event, you can check out the Speaking Inquiries page for more info!) I’m also going to start planning the first ever Unfading Beauty Ministries Conference for Young Women! And pretty much just doing more outreach and follow the Great Commission:

Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” Matthew 28:19

 

When you realize that you aren’t really fulfilling your full potential and calling, you find yourself worrying-at least that was the case for me!

I haven’t always been a fan of change. Change means that you have to step out into new and potentially uncomfortable situations, and after a high school career of uncomfortable situations, to say the least, I’m not a fan. However, as my friend’s mom told me a year ago: without change you can’t grow and without growth, God can’t use you. (Talk about a wake-up call!)

So, over the next several months, there are going to be some big changes; potentially even change in some of the content on this blog (don’t worry, it won’t be anything too outlandish! **wink**wink**)

So, at the end of this all, I would ask for your prayers that God will continue to reveal to me where he wants for this ministry to go!

XoXo,

New Season

new seasons

“For everything there is a season…” ~Ecclesiastes 3:1

I love when the seasons change! The subtle changes that occur over time that lead into one, big, extraordinary finale! Such as when all the leaves have all changed and there are beautiful arrays of colors everywhere!  Or, when finally the spring is come and all the bumblebees and flowers are out! Or even, dare I say, when there is snow on the ground and everyone is all bundled up, with rosy cheeks, laughing and having wintery fun! 

These are my favorite times of year! I just love the anticipation of coming new things! 

That is why I am so excited about the coming new season for Unfading Beauty Ministries! there is an anticipation building up of coming things, and it has me as excited as the coming season of all things pumpkin and cinnamon-spiced! 

I can’t say anything about all that’s coming up (partially because I don’t know everything God has in store-yet!) but I do know the feeling of anticipation that’s stirring in my spirit!

That being said, I do want some input from all of you!!

what are some things you’d like to see Unfading Beauty Ministries do? Be it women’s gatherings, article subjects ANYTHING! GET CREATIVE! NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD!!! 

I want this to be first and foremost about Honoring God, and secondly about YOU! Helping you grow in your everyday lives with Christ! Let me know how you think that could be achieved!

XoXo,

~Kristen
