Yesterday, at the Making Things Happen Intensive, my life was changed. I was humbled, impacted and moved by the amazing group of MTH2010 attendees, Lara Casey, Jeff Holt and Jeremy Cowart. Their honesty & passion revealed things in my heart that I didn’t even know were there.
Lara challenged us to go home and record a video about our experience at MTH2010. She said we didn’t have to share it, but I’m posting mine here. You want to know why?! Because I’m feeling the fear and doing it anyway! Remember this is my first attempt at a video blog, so please excuse the awkward pauses and twisted words here and there. It sometimes takes my mouth a while to catch up with my brain! (And to be 100% honest with you, this is actually my second attempt at a video blog. I recorded the entire first video, pushed play and there was no sound!)
Thanks for watching, and believe me, there’s lots more to come! 🙂
So here it is, y’all…Me: Raw and Uncut!
P.S. The little ball of fluff in my lap is Mickey AKA Fluffster AKA Fluffanelly. He’s my MTH2010 Mascot.
You are so right, Sarah! Push through the fear and amazing things will happen. I love this and I love that you were so open and honest. Thank you for having the courage to post this – I’m still trying to gather my own. And I have to add, Mickey is so cute! He looks like the happiest little fluff ball sleeping in your lap!
Love your video. Sounds like you had a rather life affirming, maybe even changing, experience at the event. So, I’m sending you much deserved best wishes. :o) I know you’ll succeed!
Jennifer – Thank you so much for your encouragement…and I can’t wait to hear your story. Share your video…it’s liberating! And thanks for the shout out to Mickey. He’s like a little security blanket in my lap!
Robert – You really have no idea how much that means coming from you. I actually talked to Lara about the awesome skill set you prepared me with. Thank you for helping me find my way. You have been a huge part of my story. 🙂 You’re an awesome professor, and you definitely prepared me to find my way in this oh-so-crazy world.
Yaaayyyy,Sis!!!! I love you guys and I am so proud! I am honored to have a front row seat on this ride that is your journey! It’s going to be the amazing story of two amazing people!
So glad that you guys got to go to MTH, and I can’t wait to see where you two go! There is a huge community feeling to this, even with people from other cities, which continues to be the best thing ever. It holds you accountable and keeps you thinking about what you need to in order to make things happen! Can’t wait to chat more about your experience!
I am so so so so SO thankful that we got to meet at MTH and girl, we are MAKING THINGS HAPPEN this year. 2010 is OUR year to step out in faith and it’s going to be an amazing ride. I’m so proud of you to post your video, isn’t it scary?? But everyone who watches it is encouraged by you!
p.s. Now I know what I was missing in my video, I need an MTH mascot. Fluffanelly is just too adorable!!
So glad that you all were able to be a part of the MTH-Nashville event! It was neat to be in the room with another husband & wife team, wish my wife could have joined us as well!!
Thanks for the video and I know what it means to you personally to challenge yourself to do this! So you rock it!
Friends of mine attended and I wish I could have gone as well! I loved hearing your thoughts on it!
Thank you SO much for all of your encouragement and the awesome comments. It was so awesome to meet you guys, Josh and Kristen. Kristen, you are so right! This IS our year! Time to go out there and MTH!
Sarah, so glad to be on this journey with you guys! What a powerful couple you both are with so much passion! Looking forward to seeing everyone develop from our experience together at MTH 2010 in Nashville!
WOW! You go girl…..Just awesome!!!!
