Day 3: what do you want your legacy to be?

There’s a wonderful list of questions on self discovery created by Aileen of Lavendaire.com. I found this amazing blogger and the journaling resource on Pinterest. While it is meant for journaling, I figured I’d share my journey with my Sirens. Come along with me as I rediscover who I am on Behind the Siren. Today, I answer question 30: At the end of my life, what do I want my legacy to be?

I wrote a tweet years ago. Before ATS really got poppin, before I published Falon’s Ending and definitely before I became a wife and a mother. I want to be a crazy mix of Octavia Butler, Joyce Meyer and Oprah.

When I pass, I want to leave behind stories that draw people from this world, this planet and this plane of knowledge. I want my books to make people question who they are and what is real. I want my life to answer the questions my book suppose. After people have entered other realms I want my profession of faith to help make sense of this reality.

I think I’ve always been afraid to be a proper writer. There was always something I wanted to do in junction to avoid being a pauper. This week my sister called me asking this very question. “What do you want to do?”

Writing alone isn’t it. But I don’t exist without writing either. So I’m presently praying for wisdom. I’m asking that God sends me boldly in the direction of what sets his heart on fire for me.
