Hello and welcome…
I want to take the time to tell you my story, and how Lofty Momma’s came to be.
Choosing a headshot of me was hard (because I hate pictures of myself) but I went with this one because it shows the “real me”. God’s given me such a joy that I can’t help but be happy and laughing all the time! Well most of the time anyway, let’s be honest, I’m not always happy. I fail terribly every day.
Anyway, on to my story! I didn’t always keep this bubbly nature, in fact, I lost all joy about a year ago. I didn’t smile, I felt dead inside and I had allowed the devil to rob me of my joy. Don’t get me wrong, I’m one blessed momma. I have two beautiful children, Declan (5) and Destiny (2), But I wanted purpose in my life. More than just being a wife and a mom. I couldn’t seem to pull myself out of the hole to which I had fallen... self destruct mode... and in that mode I had withdrawn and closed myself off from others so that I didn’t have to fake being happy. It wasn’t until I had attended a Ladies Tea, through our church, that everything changed! Mind you, I didn’t want to go, but for some reason I did. It was when we had a special prayer time that I knew that God brought me here for that moment. Shaking uncontrollably inside, as the Devil fought to NOT have me speak, that I was able to share and ask for prayer! That night I began my journey out of that dark hole. I praise the Lord that He brought me from that dark valley into the glorious light of His joy over the next couple of weeks following that.
It was one day during my devotion that God literally spoke to me to start this business, and I was dumbfounded. I had NO IDEA HOW TO DO ANY OF THIS! But God did! And the awesome thing about God is that He asks us to step out of our comfort zones, and delve into uncharted territory. So I did, and here I am 11 months later still in awe of how this all came about. It’s been one wild and blessed ride. Because what God brings you to, He blesses above and beyond. Most days I’m running to just keep up with Him!
So my encouragement to anyone who wanted to find purpose in life, don’t be afraid to ASK GOD!! But you have to be willing to go through whatever refining fires He has for you, in order to mold you for HIS GLORY! I’m still a work in progress, life didn’t get easy! But that dark hole, and that weight of the burdens I carried alone, are gone. Because I stopped doing it alone and allowed God to carry it for me!
Lastly, thank you all for all your support in my business! I love each one of you dearly! I wouldn’t be where I’m at without you!
With a grateful and blessed heart,
P.S. I chose Lofty Momma’s because Lofty means tall, and I thought that suited me perfectly, seeing as how I’m 6’2”!
