I began Shine in 2014.
I have written hundreds of blogs. (Over 70 pages on my website)
I have led nearly 2 years worth of challenges. (Not consecutively)
I have offered 1:1 and group coaching programs.
I have FB Lived a ton–sometimes 30 days in a row!
I have posted on a number of social media platforms daily.
I have responded to 1000s of Shine followers’ emails.
I have hosted retreats and workshops.
I have presented at women’s conferences.
I didn’t make much money from what I like to call my busnistry, but time after time when I considered throwing in the towel, God would give me a sign to keep going.
Along the way, I attended workshops, retreats, and webinars. I read books, watched TED Talks, listened to podcasts and completed courses to help teach me new ways to reach others. I spent nearly $50K over the last few years.
Then last month, during our 21 days of prayer and fasting at church, while I was simultaneously doing a 31 Day wisdom study in Proverbs, I kept on hearing The Lord say, “It’s time.”
I didn’t know that meant.
I peered around the room day after day thinking it was my husband He was finally revealing to me.
Still waiting on that one.
But it has all made sense.
Within a few weeks I learned that I was losing my job and if you read my email yesterday, you know that February 10 was my last day.
I now know it’s time to pivot and relaunch Shine with Frannie with a new direction and mission.
Through prayer, consistent, constant action, obedience, and a strong, supportive sisterhood God has revealed the next steps of Shine with Frannie.
This is such a testimony to Gal 6:9.
This happened over time.
This happened with hard work.
This happened with risk.
This happened with obedience.
This happened when I took a leap!
I am going to be doing my first YouTube video in FOREVER. I am going to share openly about what The Lord has prepared me for and where He is leading me with this next chapter. While I love all-things-fitness-and-health-related, it is not where He is sending me to serve.
I am excited for this new season, and I am hopeful you will continue to be a part of what Shine is doing to spread The Good News and honor Him!
Log on to Shine with Frannie’s YouTube page Wednesday, February 11 at 12pm EST to hear what’s in store.
“She is clothed with strength and dignity,
and she laughs without fear of the future.”
Prov 31:25 NLT
P.S. I find it ironic that when I prayed for my retreat theme this past fall and The Lord led me to “Fear Less.” I am living that out right now!
