Hi I’m Heidi Lynn! Welcome to Chronicles of a New Creation where I love to talk about CHANGE!!! I believe that as Christian women, we were created to serve our families, our churches, and our communities. Unfortunately, this calling is impossible without organization in our homes, families, and spiritual lives. Organization does not come naturally to all women, but it is a skill that all women can learn!
Chronicles of a New Creation
Not too far in my recent past, I was a woman ashamed. I would hear the doorbell ring and grab stacks of dirty dishes to stuff in the oven. I would re-wash a minimum of two loads of laundry a week because clothes were left sitting too long in the washer or dryer and had begun to stink or had become hopelessly wrinkled. I would re-buy food, cleaning, even gift-wrapping supplies because mine were nowhere to be found when I needed them. Don’t get me started on how many times I lost my keys, phone, purse, shoes, anything, everything! No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t catch up, and I couldn’t get my life together. I didn’t have time for the people in my life or time to do the things that really mattered to me. Yet this is not my life anymore! Through the grace of God, I have become a new creation.
My prayer is that God will use my struggles and a few of my victories to bless you and help you change some of the more stressful areas of your life. When you are overwhelmed and struggling, you cannot be the wife, mother, support, or witness that God called you to be.
Through the blog part of this website, I talk about organization for our homes, hearts, health, relationships, and more. Additionally, I offer training seminars to church women’s groups and conferences to help women gain control of their household tasks and the things in our lives. Finally, I offer one-on-one services to women within a 100-mile radius of zip code 47012 to personally teach women how to get organized. Whether its cleaning out a closet, setting up a functional kitchen, or tackling an entire household, I am here for you! Please see my page Helping You to understand my services more fully.
I reach out to women to help you get control of your life, but more importantly, I challenge you to keep God in the center of your change to becoming a new creation!!
I began my writing career in a non-profit education facility where I spent eight years as a Communication Specialist. I wrote emcee speeches, weekly press releases, newsletters, brochures, and website text. I re-wrote training manuals and redesigned our volunteer training. In less than four years, I trained almost 2,000 volunteers to become reading tutors. I loved what I did, but I felt something was missing. Yes, we helped poverty students learn to read and escape the perils of their current situation, but we weren’t offering them anything beyond this life. It was time for a change.
A sold-out follower of Christ, I have a heart for ministry and helping others. Through my local church, my husband and I serve as youth leaders. Additionally, I teach a women’s Bible study and serve as the chair of the Benevolence Committee. I don’t know where this life will lead me, but I know “when I grow up”, I want to be serving Jesus!
