I am Connie Bartlett, to some Lulu, the creator, and editor of Connie Bartlett Inspires, a faith-based blog focused on inspiring women to revive their broken souls. The site was created out of love and compassion for women who have been beaten up by circumstances out of their control and lost their soul in the process. This site is for the woman that has experienced or is in the middle of the feelings of loss, heartache, shame, brokenness, loneliness, and soul emptiness. I have experinced all of these feelings I wanted to tell you a little more about myself and give you some background on how this site got started.
I am a born and raised Sweet Georgia Peach who really does loves sweet tea and Jesus! I have a twin sister, a brother, a half-sister, and an adopted sister. I am a proud aunt to 5 nephews and 1 sweet little niece. I am a mother of six children, yes, you read that correctly six. I met my soulmate in 2007, he had three children, and I had three children, so we married like the Brady’s and we have a big beautiful blended family. We purchased our dream in North Georgia and this is where we raise our tribe. My Rock, that’s his name, is a project manager for a local company and I have been a marketer in corporate America for many years.
In May 2017 God closed the door to my corporate career because I needed redirection. I needed to quit chasing my career and focus on the woman God created me to be. I had become so consumed in living every day that I lost “ME”. I lost time with my husband, children, time with my family, and I lost my connection with God. I had become a shell of a woman walking around with a fake smile on my face. Playing nicely in the adult size sandbox of life where most of the people around me were rudely throwing sand in my face. I was seeking God in everything I did but getting nowhere.
After a few weeks of soul searching and submerging myself in God’s word I felt a gentle nudge from God to create a way to share my story. I felt I needed to be heard, to inspire, to help those who need to hear that they are loved, worthy, and chosen by God. I needed to reach women who were stuck in a broken place just as I was to hear they are not alone.
Connie Bartlett Inspires, is a place I pour my heart and broken soul out. It’s a place I share my soulful healing journey with you, the ones I love, and the ones I have lost. My hope is to touch the lives of others while offering love, inspiration, the Word.
