My world shattered the first time I chose sex.

I was fourteen, still a little person, barely 100 pounds.

My world didn’t shatter because the God of heaven rained down tears of anger over my pre-marital sex, cut me out of our personal relationship or decided to never use me again. That’s what I thought God was supposed to do when a little girl throws off her special invisible virginity cloak.

In other G-Bisk news….

Allow me to humble-brag? I wrote a post for my Patheos blog that’s been shared over 8,000 times, which I’m pretty sure my most shared post ever.  It’s about Why I hate the images from Kabul & Syria to Boston #WithLove.

In response to a post a white woman wrote about why she married a black dude, I wrote Why I Married White Dude.

Over at my friend, Jenn’s blog I wrote about how God is resurrecting my dry bones.

Potentially Craziest but Supa Rad Idea…

I’m launching a Discipleship Coaching business where I’m inviting YOU gab with me for 1 on 1, pay-whatever-you-can sessions.  I’ve completed 3 beginning sessions & it’s been a real joy.  Come join us!  Email me at gbiskie at gmail dot com if you’re interested.

If this feels like a good fit I plan to keep going!  In a week or two, I’ll set hourly rates, so get in while you can at pay-whatever-you’d-like. =)

In My Clustered Head…

In some ways, dear blogging friends, my head is spinning.  Reeling may be a better word.  Tomorrow makes two weeks that I’ve been unemployed.  I’ve been working like mad trying to find other work, working on a book project with a firm deadline, launching this new coaching business, the aforementioned writing & planning for a new multi-writer blog I’ll be launching in the next 10 weeks.

You know that phrase “Do it Scared.”  Pretty all true.  I’m terrified.  But, I’m pushing through because I believe in the vision of what I’m attempting to accomplish.  I just got off the phone with Darrell Vesterfelt to help me lay plans for the new blog launch & tomorrow I’m chatting it up with a coaching guru so that I can make this coaching gig both quality & sustainable.

There’s a time for everything.  Now is the time to believe in myself.  Online, I have lots of people who say “rah rah, Grace!  I’m behind you!  Follow your dreams! I believe in you!  You can do this!  Go for it!”

In real life: one.  Just my one friend, Cindy & we’re in a Mastermind group together, so there’s that.  (And she just WRAPPED A MOVIE)!  Online peeps, pray for me.  I want IRL (in real life) support yes, but more than that, I need it.  And right now, all I’ve got is “but this,” and “but that,” opposition, nay-sayers & energy-drainers.

There comes  a point when big dreaming, passionate people like myself have to believe in the visions and the dreams they have….when they’ve got to jump off that proverbial cliff believing they’ve got the skills and talent and with the Lord’s help will make those dreams a reality.

That time is now.  Did I mention I’m shaking in my boots?

If you have any skills in branding, web design, writing or are un-naturally wealthy and want to consider investing in my vision email me at gbiskie at gmail dot com.  I’d love to share my vision with you as it develops.  And for the rest of you, more info coming soon.

Come Alive Quote

As soon as I finished up this post, I was hit with some hard news.  Opposition is real.  Prayers appreciated while I COME ALIVE.

  1. “Just my one friend, Cindy & we’re in a Mastermind group together” hmph!!! I know both of you. I want in, haha. Ask her – I’m one of her biggest supporters. You need IRL support, I’ve got you covered. :D

    • Caris, we’ve only met a couple of times —just getting it off the ground in terms of what it is & who it’s for. We wanted to hash all that out before we opened up wide the invitations… (so I’ll be in touch =) Anyway, THANK YOU for your IRL support of both Cindy & I…Lawd knows we need it. And same to you!

    I support you and your drive to pursue your dreams. Keep moving forward and ignore the nay-sayers. This may seem judgmental, but they are just jealous. Can’t wait for the new web launch.

    • Thanks so much, Adele! I’m getting excited about it! Your support is meaningful!!!!!

      • Adele Henderson says:

        You are so welcome. I just got back from a Baptist Women in Ministry event and discover the power in ‘Sisterhood’ I have always believed in the importance of women supporting one another and this experience confirmed this. I love that God designed us to walk as community and community can only work through support.

  5. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
