the quality, state, or fact of being able to generate, create, enhance, or bring forth goods and services


I am working with a group of women on a Bible study, Your Sacred Yes, by Susie Larson  and am faced by a yoursacredyesquestion today.  BTW, I love this book and study thus far, it helps you to self examine motives for wasting your time or questioning s true purpose.  The question that intrigued me today is asking if we feel like we have a purpose;  I NOW feel like I was put on this earth for a purpose, to give others hints on succeeding even with an injury that makes everything difficult.  I have overcome, and I can use my experiences to help others succeed as well.

At the end of February, I went in to speak at a friend’s high school, about my traumatic brain injury, and the skills that helped me graduate high school.  The skills that I needed to learn to get through college, and how you need to assertively tell the staff how they can help you.  Once you have gotten into the special education program in high school, you are faced with a clean slate as a student going into college and you need to tell the staff at the school what you need, and a lot of the students who have grown up in a SPED setting, are not aware of how to advocate for themselves.  I am hoping to bring awareness on how to better adapt from high school to campus life in the future.

This Bible study has helped me to further reflect on God’s purpose for me, and if my daily actions keep his purpose first.  I believe that I am to record [by writing] all of my struggles as an example of how to Functionally succeed.  God definitely has a plan for me, and I am so *thankful* that He has helped me to recover and am so excited to discover what He plans to use me to help with next.
