About Me

Hi, I'm Constance and I'm a right-brain/left-brain mix...

That means I'm pretty much equal parts creative and administrative, which sounds great - and it CAN be - but more often than not I find myself abandoning the creative in order to check things off my ever-present task list. This makes me feel productive, but it also means I'm often ignoring the creative part of who God made me to be. It's an ongoing tension...

I'm in my forties and I thought I'd be doing more impressive things by now.

That whole "to whom much is given, much is required" thing and all. And the truth is I HAVE gotten to do a bunch of cool things that look really good on my LinkedIn profile. But lately it seems I'm watching everyone else pass me by while I'm busy keeping up with less exciting endeavors...

Instead of being the one publishing a book, I'm the one being asked to endorse someone else's.

Instead of being the one on stage, I'm the one booking speakers for our next conference.

Instead of being the media darling, I'm the one reading press releases to find new talent for our Lasting Freedom webinar series.

But then I remember...

God doesn't need me to be the one with her name on the book cover or her photo on posters. His measure of my value has nothing to do with the world's. The work I do every day as CEO of a nonprofit helping people find freedom from eating disorders may not be sexy, but the thrill I feel when we get to hear another story of life-change is pretty danged cool.

And then there's these lovely people in my life...

And so I have to ask myself, am I really going to miss what God has for me because I don't have enough time to keep up with social media or build my "tribe," or chase more accomplishments? And I think I have to say, no. I'm not missing anything.

I'm just getting started...
