Hello, Welcome!

Hi. Hello!

I’m so glad you’re here!

Although the name of this site is IntentionalME,

my goal is that YOU feel welcome here.

I hope that you will

feel welcome,

be encouraged,

 and be challenged

to be more intentional in your own life.

You don’t have to be perfect.

You are welcome here.

You don’t have to have it all together.

You are welcome here.

You don’t have to be a believer, a Christian.

You are welcome here…

(…Although I pray that if you don’t believe or know Him yet, God might use these words to lead you to faith…)

Whoever you are, wherever you are…

YOU are welcome here.


I would love for you to leave a comment, or drop me an email ( IntentionalMe {at} gmail {dot} com ). Let me know if there is any way I can help you be IntentionalYOU.

IntentionalMe Mission:

To encourage, inspire, and challenge women – body, mind, & soul.

My biggest tool for this mission? This:

“Be Still and KNOW that I am God.”

~Psalm 46:10

My favorite verse (and my twitter handle: @2BeStill). Simple. Intentional. And true.   So often, as women, we forget to take the time to be still and just listen.  We’re so busy taking care of everyone else . We claim  to not have the time to “do nothing.”  Being still, however, is absolutely not the same as doing nothing. If we are still, deep down, body & mind still, we can really listen and find the path we’re meant to take. God has a purpose and a plan for each of us. If we want to catch a glimpse of it, it’s absolutely necessary to learn to be still.

Those are my intentions. I hope you’ll join me.

I need encouragement to “be still”. It seems so elusive some days! Love the new focus. I can feel the peace!

We don’t require that you link back with a button. If you’d like to link back, you’re welcome to do so, of course, but it’s not required. Feel free to copy the image from the post and insert it into your own if you’d like. Thanks for stopping by! I look forward to reading your post. :)

Heya Shell!
being intentional is so important. i am glad God awakened me to that when i saw that life can whizz us by and we just move between things, events, hopes and fears without really hearing, feeling, acting right or upright so often.
Being still is a life message or should i say a wiggling-life message coz i am sure i am ADHD before they knew it existed — and yet, God in His mercy taught me to be still.
Great going! Press on!

I just had to say how much I LOVE your header design. Beautiful. Did you design it yourself? xox


Michelle November 28, 2012 at 8:14 PM

Thank you so much! I did design it myself. I’ve had a couple of others, but finally decided I needed to LOVE all the separate parts of it if I was going to be able to not get tired of it. So I chose some of my favorite photos I’ve taken, ones that make me happy to look at, and then designed around those. Thanks so much for the compliment… It makes me happy to know someone else likes it too. :)
