Who Is Shatara Ross?

 

In 2016 I jumped out on faith quit my job not knowing what I was going to do next and went backpacking solo in Europe for 40 days. I bet you’re wondering what led me to doing such a crazy thing. Well a year ago I started asking God what my purpose was in life and feeling I should be doing more. I had been an educator the past 4 years teaching middle school  but still felt empty and not fulfilled. I knew there was more that God had for me but I didn’t know exactly what that was.

Well I took off to Europe to try to find what my next step was going to be in life and my purpose here on Earth. I backpacked through Europe from country to country meeting new people, eating different cuisines and taking in the beauty of God’s creation. After 40 days I came back home still wondering what I was going to do with my life.

During this dark time of not knowing who I was, I met a guy that at the time I thought was my husband. He had all the qualities that I wrote down at the beginning of the year that I “wanted” in a man. Well as time went on he turned out to be abusive and I was now pregnant with his child. Yea I know. I never thought a year ago I would be in the position that I am in now but I’m rolling with it. So now I’m a single mother still seeking my purpose. To be honest as crazy as it may seem I feel that I am walking in my purpose. I have came to the conclusion that the things we go through is not about us, it’s about the people that we are suppose to reach from our journey. So that’s why I’m starting this blog. I want to share this new journey of being a mother and seeking my purpose.  I seek God everyday to give me wisdom on my purpose and the plans that he has for my life. So come and tag along and we will see together how this story unfolds.
