I thought a lot
about posting this blog in these uncertain times, but a word that keeps coming to mind for me is courage.
A few Sunday’s ago, my pastor referenced the biblical story of Peter joining Jesus in walking on water. Before Peter left the boat, Jesus said “Have courage, it is I; do not be afraid.”
In his sermon, Bishop Jack Bomar challenged us to have the courage to step off the boat and live the life we’re called to live. Just as Peter had to trust Jesus, we each must trust that when we make that first step, God won’t let us drown. Whatever that first step is, it takes courage to show up for yourself, your purpose and your calling.
By having the faith to be courageous with how we live, we then become unforgettable. Our imprint on our communities is solidified and made permanent. And by showing up for ourselves, we then inspire others to live the lives they were called to live.
Writing The Worthy Wardrobe required me to deeply reflect on my life and question some of my own truths. As I interviewed over 70 women, I also came to acknowledge that our voices and our stories matter, and that they are more alike than different. The same faith and courage that got this book written is the same faith and courage I am relying on when asking for your help in getting The Worthy Wardrobe published.
By joining my pre-sale campaign and purchasing a copy of my book, you’ll be helping me pay for my team of editors, graphic designers and marketing experts. In exchange, you’ll get a signed copy delivered in July as well as access to my private Worthy Wardrobe online community. In this private Facebook group, I will be sharing exclusive style tips, early access to chapters (where I’ll be looking to get your feedback) and requesting your input on my cover design.
I am so excited to share this process with you. You can learn more about the book and campaign here: https://igg.me/at/morganwider/x#/
I know for certain that my work on this planet is meant to include The Worthy Wardrobe. It is my love letter to every woman who has felt like she wasn’t good enough, pretty enough, or that style wasn’t for her. Learn more through the video link below.
Thank you for your support. I can’t wait to reconnect and share this work with you and the world.
Yours in Style, Shopping & Soul,
