Hello new friends!! Here’s my story in a nutshell. 😉
My name is Thea. Like thheeee-yuhhhh. HA! Anywho, so I’ve learned more about “adulting” in the last two years than some people learn in two decades. But I’ve also learned A LOT about myself. Since April 2018, I’ve gone from losing a dream job to waitressing 60 hours a week to starting my own business.
It’s been a hard road of questioning myself, barely making ends meet, and countless nights shouting at the ceiling asking God, “Why is this happening?? Why won’t You FIX THIS?!”
My ability to fully trust in His plan was clouded by fear. Fear of never getting hired, fear of not keeping up with bills, and whatever other fears you can think of because there were plenty. Yet for every moment of fear, there was a moment of hope. Or stubbornness. Tomato/tomahto.
So here I am, building my business and pursuing my dream as a freelance creative. I’m not gonna lie, I don’t have the most solid plan (I DO have one), but I’m convinced this was His plan all along. Like in Jeremiah 29:11, a plan for me to prosper and not be harmed. A plan to give me hope and a future.
Within His plan, my goal as a solopreneur is pretty much just like 1 Peter 4:10:
“Each of you has been blessed with one of God’s many wonderful gifts to be used in the service of others. So use your gift well.”
1 Peter 4:10 (CEV)
As I use these gifts, I genuinely hope Thea Creates serves you well.
Blessings and peace,
