I wish I was a little bit…wiser

Hi Friends!

It’s been a while and so much has been going on. I’ve missed sharing with you all regularly and look forward to more of that soon.

On that note, I’ve been brainstorming a few ideas for new content on the blog and I’m happy to announce just a couple of things that are currently in the works including: The Proverbs Project (more about that below), Coffee with Karen (5 minute vlogs), and periodic guest writers!

I’m looking forward to the great things the rest of 2018 holds for us all!

The Proverbs Project: A Month of Wisdom

In a book club meeting last year while chatting about my sister’s latest Toastmasters assignment, she mentioned that she always wishes someone would ask her, “What advice would you give to your younger self?” (in retrospect). I think we all think about this from time to time–the coulda, shoulda, woulda’s of life. What we would do differently then is almost always based on knowing better now. For me, what I would tell my younger self has less to do with regret and much more to do with wisdom. For example, if I was a little wiser with my finances, I could have avoided some unnecessary debt. If I was a little wiser about time management, I could have been proficient in that instrument I always wanted to play or that language I wanted to learn, etc.

Gaining wisdom helps us to make better life choices and expands our horizons (and spiritual territory) by far! Proverbs 4:7 says,
“The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom, and whatever you get, get insight.”
Wisdom, insight, understanding, good counsel–all of these help us to set a course for our lives that lead to greater things. They also help us to reset ourselves when we find we’ve gotten off track.
Starting on August 31 and going all through the month of September, we’re going to take a dive, head first, into Proverbs (aka The Book of Wisdom). I’ve recruited 7 amazing friends who along with me, will be using the SOAP method to take a month-long journey through Proverbs. There will be a post each and every day in the Scripture – Observation – Application – Prayer format. We’ll each be choosing verses to unpack in our own unique ways and sharing practical ways to apply them to our lives.
I’m so looking forward to this project and I just know that it’s going to be a real blessing to our lives. Let’s use this next month to gain some Godly wisdom and insight that will undoubtedly help us to DOMINATE the rest of 2018! Our future selves will thank us!
