May 2012 will mark the 2-year anniversary of Created Woman Blogazine! It’s seems like only yesterday the team was sitting around a table, excited with anticipation and wondering what would become of CW. Our passion was just simply Women; single girls, fashionistas, CEO's, mommies or adventurous - we love them all! It was definitely a leap of faith that was so exciting and so scary, all at the same time. But that’s what happens when you begin to step into your destiny, becoming who you were created to be. To me, that’s what resolutions should be about every year; making a promise to be the woman you were created to be, both inside and out, and carving out the steps to get there.
As we step into 2012, we wanted to share some of the ways we plan to stay the course for 2012 in our own personal lives. We hope, too, that as we grow at CW, you’ll continue to share your life with us. We hope to watch as you reach new heights, begin new journeys, and continue to down the path of becoming all the you were created to be!
Nadia began as our bride-to-be last year and now, as a newlywed, her writing marries fashion with outreach. She's showing us how we can be stylish and socially aware at the same time.
“My resolutions are to love better, to budget wisely, and to travel more!”
Martha has always been a writer with a passion to educate. From her Saturday morning devotionals to her passion for the world around us, Martha teaches us so many lessons in each article.
“I have a dream of being accepted by a publisher to publish my first book”
Nichole is a recent graduate of the University of Texas and is embarking on a new season of life. She'll be starting as an English teacher in the fall and will continue sharing her journey with our CW readers.
"I want to be better at quality time with people and remembering birthdays. I want to travel to a new city, start taking Pure Barre classes, and read at least one book a week. Oh, and be a GREAT teacher!"
Cheryl is a diverse writer for CW. From fashion, to outreach, to food, she's a phenomenal speaker who covers it all. Her life experiences show just what it means to live out who you were created to be and inspires those around her to do the same through her ministry Mosaic Life Network. Cheryl is a friend who always launches dreams!
“I would like to engage with family and close friends on a deeper level. Rich conversations, sending cards and significant moments are important to me. Life happens so fast, at times, I tend to operate in task mode - I plan on slowing down and taking delight in those special moments.”
Coby is a hairstylist who understands that the uniqueness of each woman must shine through, from hair to toe. Coby’s own unique style of writing comes through in every article like a cheer spurring us on to new heights in our relationships and life journeys.
“I want to trust that I am capable, God is faithful and the best is yet to come.”
Crystal is CW's source for living well. Launching her brand new business this year, Your Fitness Designer, Crystal has shared her 20 years of experience in the health and wellness field. She is living out who she's created to be and keeps things simple this year, outside of building a business.
"This year, I want to add yoga into my workouts once a week"
Yvonne leaves her fingerprint wherever she goes! As our first published author of Fingerprint: Uniquely Marked for Purpose, she leads our Saturday morning devotional team, leaves our mouth watering on so many Monday Meals, and has a passion to honor women who are living out their destiny. Thanks for your Fingerprint!
“This year I plan to love my family best by taking care of myself emotionally, spiritually and physically.”
Kala, just like her mother Yvonne, crafts her life experiences into simple, 'easy to relate to' nuggets of inspirations that are life changing. She just published her first Monday Meal as well and we can’t wait to steal some of her kitchen masterpieces.
“This year I plan on taking time to make new friends and keep the ones I already have. No more excuses! I also want to learn French, but that might have to wait until 2013.”
Jessica is another girl who has so many talents; she’s the girl that can do anything! Fashion, Health, cupcakes and more…this girl will keep anyone on their toes and is the kind of friend everyone should have.
“Looking at my schedule for the coming year with working full-time, a hard-core school load, and making time family my 'resolution' list is not nearly as long as it usually is...and that's ok with me. Some things just have to wait for other, more important ones. Love Jesus - Laugh a lot - Get enough sleep.”
Heather- As the founder of Created Woman and a new mom, my life is full of many joys. My resolutions for 2012 are to continue bringing you amazing, talented women to share their lives with you; to enjoy all the special moments with my little girl, Hadley; to never stop taking pictures of her; and to find the best shoes to wear at the best prices!
Thanks for being a part of Created Woman, a fashion blog that highlights family, health, fun and personal living!
Planning for the future at CW
