End Of Year Note From Britt

End Of Year Note From Britt

A Note From Britt

This year has been one for the books. It's been a combination of challenge and holy moments. Can anyone relate? It's been about three key things.

1. Facing the circumstances we are dealt and realizing the way it makes us feel
2. How we take that "realization" to the Lord in reliance on His goodness, strength, and love
3. Our ability to then respond in love and grounded in truth

Personally, this year started with:
  • enjoying our first pup (also known as the W&HC floor manager), Tucker
  • hopes of starting our trying to conceive journey
  • this year has ended with:
  • opportunity to steward what we have WELL. For us, this is our apartment, marriage, family of three (Michael, Tuck, and I), the blessing to do life with really good friends, service opportunities, and more...
  • confidence in God's greater vision and faithfulness over our lives
  • growing confidence in myself as a vessel for the Kingdom

Professionally, this year started with:
  • my first full-time year for W&HC
  • a dream (and signed contracts) for another large Wheatful Woman Event in Dallas
  • and many other dreams for this business the Lord blew out of the water
  • this year has ended with:
  • a growing community of over 34K women
  • an unplanned (for us) podcast launch
  • new tools in the shop (Advent Devotional, Wheatful Woman Planner, hand-painted journals)
  • our first-ever small retreat-style event
  • the opportunity for me to coach other business owners (something that lights a FIRE in me)

My prayer and dream for this community this year has been that I would have a heightened ability to LISTEN to what y'all need and that our team of women would be able to create tools to equip you to 1) realize, 2) rely and 3) respond. We had the opportunity to scratch the surface this year and have felt the Lord stirring to keep flaming that fire in 2021 with a series of new tools like Warrior Words: a scripture reference tool, a prayer journal, a Wheatful Woman Devotional book, and more hitting the shop soon!

I know this year played out far more different than any of us imagined but my hope and prayer is that we can each look back on the moments and blessings we are forever changed by for the better. I pray we each can spend a few moments today and tomorrow reflecting on how much more we know our God BECAUSE of this year. Circumstance cannot change His peace.

Here's to a God that is GREATER, STRONGER, WISER, and more loving than we will ever be able to comprehend but get to rest in, believe in, and hope for every day.

I love y'all,
Britt

How often do we find ourselves feeling pulled in too many directions, leaving little of us to truly honor the people and things we choose to devote our time and energy to? When I try to imagine what this strive for “worldly balance” looks like, I imagine a juggler or plate-spinner trying to keep things in perfect rhythm without dropping the ball (or plate, if you will). If you don’t know what I am referencing with plate-spinning, pause your reading and go look it up. Prepare to experience you...

How often do you find yourself talking to the Lord and all of a sudden catch yourself deep in a thought involving something that you’re anticipating - totally separated from your prayer? I often catch this happening on my commute to or from work, especially on those days that I hit snooze one too many times or try to squeeze in one more thing and don’t prioritize giving the Lord space to join me in the step-by-step parts of the day.

As I write this, I can’t help but imagine God’s presence with me like a loving father who has graciously been trying to help me solve a seemingly-tricky math problem on an assignment that I should have grasped a while ago. I can clearly envision Him giving me a warm smile and gently patting me on the back as the light bulb finally goes off in my head, and I feel so silly for not understanding the overall concept long before now. I hope this message resonates with my friends who grapple with d...
