A week or so ago I asked my Documented Faith newsletter readers and FB Group to send me questions for a FB Live that never happened (whoops and sorry bout that) so I thought I'd start answering some of them here.
Maggie Russell asked: "Who inspires you Stephanie? When I started following documented faith 3 years ago it was because you inspired me to be creative as a Christian Artisan. It's become my favorite bible study because you use 1 word & scripture all month. This gives me time to slow down and focus."
Thanks for the question and for following along with me Maggie. I love that you are able to focus on what I send out. THAT is the main objective. It is tricky to answer your question, because with social media, honestly the inspiration comes from so many directions and often times it is more from WHAT than WHO so I am going to try and keep it simple. I am always inspired by Meg Duerksen for her rainbow filled explosions of truth, wit and her love for chickens and family, Shannon Martin for telling real life in a hilarious and matter of fact way, Melody Ross for getting to the truth of all matters and my Pastor, Rick Warren who has taught and reminded me through his messages so many times that God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things. That alone could be a whole blog series and how I constantly have to remind myself of it.
I could list 787 more people but I said I was going to keep it simple although it has really got me thinking. I am inspired by people, places, music, food...but I am not going to lose focus. The people I mentioned above three remind me in their sharing to keep it real. There are so many more, but again, simple.
