In 2015, my best friend Natalie Barbu and I felt called to start an online ministry called Becoming Rooted. She is a fashion blogger and prominent YouTuber, so we decided to combine our strengths to create a website. We did not expect the overwhelming response we received from all of our viewers/readers. Honestly, it was a lot to take in at first. In late 2016, we decided to take a few months hiatus to pray about the direction of our ministry.
We learned that it’s important to pray and seek direction.
We learned that in order to run a ministry, spiritual health must come first.
And we are so EXCITED about the re-launch of our website. We have made amazing changes that I can’t wait to share!
- We have included a discussion forum on the website where we can get to know one another, and talk about anything. You can ask me and Natalie questions, start new discussion forums about anything, and get to know one another. We are really excited to develop this COMMUNITY with all of y’all!
- We have also developed a FREE membership program that enables all of our readers to get notifications when someone responds to your comment, starts a new discussion forum, and get exclusive access to the full discussion forum!
- We will be posting new content (videos and blog posts) every other Saturday. We decided to scale back on the new content, because we will also post on our personal outlets multiple times a week. However, Natalie and I will both be managing the discussion forum, and post back frequently!
- We are really focusing on the prayer requests this year, and have developed a PRAYER TEAM so that you are covered with prayer 24/7!
I really hope you all enjoy these changes. We are so excited to see what 2017 brings, and will be re-evaluating the website periodically to keep fresh content and changes coming!
