Bless and Stir a Bunch More People

Kin Women SEP 2018 Blog Images (4)

“Sharing a story may just be the right words in a season for another.”

I am a firm believer in bringing courage, inspiration and cheer to those in our sphere of influence.

I’m not talking about being a super-star, I’m talking about everyday women who have a sphere of influence.

If I appreciate something; whether it is a blog someone has written, a kind act by someone, or a milestone achieved by a colleague – then I get excited about sharing their story.

It’s what gives me a great buzz and gives me a full meaning to my networks and sphere of influence.

We have all been given spheres of influence for a reason – a reason that really requires at its core to be ‘for good’.

Our sphere of influence is a gift.  The bigger our sphere of influence, the bigger the responsibility – so we can’t take it lightly but rather temper our influence with wisdom and sound knowledge because people are listening and watching.

But what I wanted to encourage all of us today is to share stories and accomplishments of others, that can in-turn motivate more people; bless and stir a whole bunch more people for what may be a critical time for them.

You re-sharing another’s story may just be the right words in a season for another.

So use your sphere of influence to bring courage, inspire and cheer-on others.

No Regrets
