Hello! Welcome to “Project Influence”!  My name is Chelsea – I am an adoptive mom, a full time working mom, a woman after God’s heart and an avid essential oiler. I started my adult years with one very clear picture of what my life was going to look like and boy was I wrong. I mean, I got some of it right – the “themes” and such – but just about every specific element went “wrong”. And you know what? It’s all turning out perfect. There is this thing about God knowing what your heart needs and supplying you with what you need to get there. Ultimately, I’m type A,  Enneagram 1 (if you follow that..), and a control freak – so Jesus met where I was most stubborn and got my attention the hard way. This blog is meant to be an outlet, a safe place and a source for inspiration for others. My writing comes with YOU in mind. Written by a young woman going through the normal journey of life.. the same as each of you…. My goal is to provide encouragement and hope to all that wish to pursue their goals and dreams. A safe place to think, “hmm… I can relate to that” or “I’m glad I’m not alone.”  Most people describe me as “intense” – so if you are looking for the easy read, the “feel good” stories and the fluff – this isn’t it. If you are looking for a real, no-nonsense, no drama, doesn’t like small talk, hot mess mama that has outbursts, makes mistakes, wears a top knot bun to work, closes her eyes and just goes for it – look no further- together, you and I can take this world by storm. Ready to get started?

Oh and PS – if something I write helps you out or really gets the feels going – I’d love to hear from you!
