Growing Up.

I've written this entry four or five times. I keep hitting delete. Delete, delete, delete. I've copied and pasted quotes from Lewis, Manning, L'Engle, Foster, and Spurgeon. My attempts have come to nothing.

I'm trying one more time.

When I grow up I want to write and speak and teach. When I grow up I want to teach young people to discover who they were made to be. When I grow up I want to challenge a generation to respect their bodies, embrace their dreams, and treasure the Word of God.

I'm ready to grow up.

I am humbly asking you, blog readers from Arizona to Senegal (and everywhere in between), if you will support my newest venture.

Three ways you can help:

1. Share this site with anyone you know who might be interested in hiring a speaker for retreats, banquets, seminars, assemblies, and conferences. I have experience addressing children, jr. high, sr. high, college groups, and women. My comfort zone is teaching young women about finding contentment from their Creator.

2. Share this site with young women. The "Blog" and "Ask Ginger" sections are specifically designed to create a community of discussion for girls from 6th-12th grade.

3. "Like" the page on Facebook or follow me on Twitter - @gingercim).

I would love for you, blog readers, to be a part of this journey. It would be an honor for me if YOU would check out the site for yourself! Read the blog - I will be updating regularly and would love to have you jump in on the dialogue. While you're there, check out the audio and video files and hit me up with feedback or suggestions.

I will continue to be writing here with Val - but am also incredibly excited for this new venture.

Thank you for reading and thank you for following.

Special thanks to Valerie, Jon, Megan, Renea, Lauren and Carey for their help with the site and social media accounts. This would not be happening today without you.

A super special shout out to Carrie Fay Photography for all of the images you find on the site. She is an amazing photographer and a wonderful friend.

Lastly - thank you to my parents and my husband, David, who have all pushed me to do more and be more... all for our Heavenly Father.

Here goes everything.

“Remember what Bilbo used to say: It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.” - J.R. Tolkien

1. Don't ever delete a post like this again. God made you for this.

2. I am so excited about where God takes you on this journey... and I'm proud of you for stepping out into it.

3. I am now aspiring to invent an Italian dessert just so I can name it after you.
