And so – we write for five minutes, our words tumbling out – no editing, no polishing – just flat out on a one word prompt! We gather all our beautiful thoughts here in our Five Minute Friday community and then love on each other as only we can do! Click here to learn all about it.

Home is where the Five Minute Friday community gathers so please join us at Kate Motaung’s for our Friday fun! We are always looking for new friends so come and join us. We gather Thursday evenings at about 8:30 PM EST on Twitter and you can find us using #fmfparty.



As I begin writing these words, I feel it is going to go deep, quickly. You see I am in this place of change. Somewhere between a full time and retired teacher. My life looks pretty much the same on the outside, but the inside tells me that something has changed. I see my teacher friends all heading back to school and I find myself wondering where I am supposed to go.


What’s next and how will I know when I find it? A big question that does not have a big answer. I am learning that is okay.

[Tweet “God’s answers will lead me in finding my what’s next and He is all I need.”]

I am learning that my job right now is to stay true to what God calls me to and sometimes that means I am in a holding pattern. But staying still does not mean staying stuck. I look to the future and I work on getting my feet wet. I stick my toe into the water, but I am not quite ready to step completely out of the boat. God is teaching me that He will be right there with me, every step of the way. He is leading me toward a brave faith and this process will help me to find my what’s next.

As we seek God, He seeks what is best for us and He graciously loves it when we find the answers that He has been putting in our path all along. Stepping out of the boat toward brave faith is my leap to finding my what’s next.

How will you find yours? Will you take a chance on God to help you find the answers?


Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.So glad you joined me here and I love seeing everyone of you. Matthew 7:7-8

In grace and peace,
