The Framework
Author: Kylie Welch

Chapter 1
Introduction

The other day I was at a conference.  The keynote speaker mentioned a framework.  She had created an educational framework and it was causing her students to succeed.  I thought to myself, ‘well, maybe I should investigate a new framework for my life.  One that will help me move forward from the annoying problems that I have been struggling with for so many years’.  Then it got me to thinking about the kinds of problems I had and in which areas I am struggling.  I thought of my finances, friendships, singleness, accommodation and health.  My weight isn’t what I would like it to be, my emotions tend to go up and down depending on the weather and I love to buy things, just things.  I know I need to change, I want to change but change seems like it is hidden behind a steel door and I have not yet been given the key to open it, or should I say I have not yet discovered where the key is.

 

Don’t get me wrong.  I have enjoyed a lot of areas of success in my life.   I used to smoke, I was a compulsive gambler from the age of 18 – 22 and I suffered from depression, co-dependency and low –self-esteem for many years.  These horrible things all used to be my companions.  Now I have confidence, joy, creativity, musical ability, a great career and amazing friendships.  These are things I often celebrate as successes but they are not to my own strength that I can give credit.  I can only give credit to the one who took these habits away and gifted me the positives – Jesus.  The Lord has been good to me.  I would however like something to change which will help me progress even further.  I need a new way of doing things because the way I am doings things doesn’t seem to be working.  I have decided that I am going to co-author with the Lord in helping me in a new way – by using a new framework.  Based on His word, the Bible, I hope to use this as a tool to not only teach and educate myself as to just how relevant the Bible is as an agent of change but if it works for me, then there is no reason why it shouldn’t work for you.

 

Let’s go for a journey together shall we?  You are invited and very welcome.
