Rhinestone Jesus

Last year the keynote speaker for Blog Elevated was Kristen Welch of We Are That Family blog. I could relate to Kristen being an introvert. You could tell as she spoke. But even though she has a quiet voice she left a memorable impression on me. I was so excited to read her book that each attendee received. It was one of those stories that you just couldn’t put down. She was very transparent on topics that some people may have omitted “to keep up with appearances”. But not Kristen, she shared her emotions which I feel if more people did connections would be easier to make.

As someone who is making a huge transition in life, that at this point I can’t see past the next step. I felt Rhinestone Jesus is something I can use as a way to know life will move forward. I have big audacious, scary goals but like many of you I go back into my shell and let them die. I know what you’re thinking. Why is this Gamechanger sharing her vulnerability? Because I, just like you, have an idea that will make a difference to others in this world. I just have to push past the fear of my own thoughts and make it happen.

I share my thoughts about Rhinestone Jesus in my weekly Brunch and Books Periscope show.
