This has been my favorite quote for years. I love it. It completely encompasses everything I stand for…
I am not a “well-behaved” woman. Sometimes, I say inappropriate things. I have no problem talking about sex, not even in mixed company. I stand up for what I believe in. I am sort of a Christian feminist.
I never have been a shrinking violet, or a wallflower. I like to stand out. I like to be heard. I like to state my opinion. I will openly disagree with someone, especially if I believe that they are wrong. I hate injustice.
The point is…I do not necessarily “behave” all the time and I am completely fine with that. I aim to change the world for the better, to make a difference. When I reach the end of my life and I’m on my deathbed and the Lord is about to take me home, I want to be able to look my God in the eye (so to speak) and say “I used every gift, talent, and tool you gave me.” God gave me a voice in many different ways; I write, I speak publicly, and I sing. If I can use those gifts to impact lives and make the world better, why wouldn’t I do it?
There will be people that won’t like what I say or won’t like how I sound or come across. There have always been and will always be people who think I’m too outspoken and that I should tone it down. But forget it! I am free in Christ, I’m a woman of God, and I’m a wild flower.
I aim to make history…
