The Invisible Woman



Nicole Johnson is a brilliant bestselling author and motivational speaker. I've had the pleasure of hearing her speak many times through the years at Women of Faith conferences. Her messages are a breath of fresh air, always powerful and filled with encouragement. And today, she’s one of the most sought-after creative communicators in America. Many of my girlfriends who are married with children will appreciate this video clip and Nicole's encouraging message because most of them have devoted their lives to loving and raising children, supporting their husbands and managing a household single handledly while their husbands spend most of their time working and traveling. They've confessed to me through the years that they too have often felt invisible. I’ve even heard this from my single mom friends. If you fall into this category, my prayer for you is that this video will be a source of encouragement to you. You're not alone and you are NOT invisible to God. If you're a mom, a wife or a woman who has dedicated her life to a cause greater than herself, this video is for you with great admiration for the greatness of what you are building when no one see's. 

I took a peak at Nicole's website this evening. On her home page she writes: "We live in a world of great beauty and enormous pain. I like to write about the strange way they come together on the shores of hope."  Don't you just love that???

Wishing you peace and wholeness today and always,

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men. ~ Colossians 3:23
