Four years ago, Sarah Jakes (now Sarah Jakes Roberts) released her book “Lost and Found: Finding Hope in the Detours of Life .”
During that time, she requested her fellow readers to submit a #DearLostMe letter to her blog. The letter was meant to be written to the past lost versions of themselves. I was so inspired by her selflessness to share her testimony that I submitted my own #DearLostMe letter.
Thankfully, she hand selected my letter to be one of a few letters that were featured on her blog. I was so touched by the freedom that I felt in sharing such a transparent part of me. From that moment, I vowed to do my part in helping other women to feel just as empowered in their overcoming testimonies.
In the age of cell phones and social media, it seems that handwritten letters are a dying art of endearment. Personally, I’ve always found such internal peace in putting pen to paper.
Since it is @YoungFabFancy ‘s mission to empower and uplift young and fabulous ladies such as yourself, I wanted to take the time to encourage you through the power of letters.
You already know that I am dedicated to sharing my ever growing knowledge of fashion, love, and the adventures of being a mom. I want to take it a step further and do it through letters from my heart and yours.
Given the chance, what advice would you give your younger self?
The letters don’t have to be extremely long. Just enough for us to discover what lessons you’ve learn along this journey we call Life.
I can’t wait to share your words of encouragement with fellow #YoungFabFancy ladies such as yourself!
