Oklahoma City is about a 3.5 hour drive from my house. Who would keep my youngest daughter? Who would pick my older daughter up from school? I could not do this by myself, who would go with me? We agreed that I would call back in the morning and let them know if I could make it.
Who can sleep after that call?? Thankfully I had a friend up I could call and my husband woke up. I tossed and turned most of the night. Impatiently, I waited for 4:40 AM for my ride to the gym. I could not wait to tell them and ask them to help me figure out the logistics. One even dropped everything she had going on for a road trip. I am so grateful for this little town we live in and the friends that God has put in my life. I got a friend to take care of my kids and pray for me. (you all are awesome, thank you)

We had so much fun on this road trip. I completed my on camera interview and we headed back. I was completely overwhelmed. This was crazy, unexpected, and a lot to process. I had a lot of homework to do. I had to dig deeper into my story and although I have told bits an pieces before, putting it all together was very therapeutic. I got it all turned in waited and prayed.
I had to make a lot of videos and in one of them I voiced these words:
"The journey of unpacking my story and telling my story has taught me greatly. I heard Beth Moore say "There is beauty in the process” and she is right."
In my next blog I will include the letter I wrote to the host of this show. (which begins its next season on Tuesday!!)
I received an email on Wednesday that I did not make it to the finals. Very bittersweet. I had some plans for my summer with my girls!!! Who knows what would have happened had I got picked???
I still don't know where God is taking me, but I know He is in control.
