The Vision of Valor
It all began under the swing of an oak tree. My (Sarah’s) health was waning to the point where I could no longer leave home, so the brief but daily time out of bed on the backyard bench swing with my husband Michael was my most cherished time of day.
One autumn day in this season, Michael and I began jotting down the dreams we felt God had placed on our hearts. Ideas poured over the pages with Valor as one of our biggest dreams. Although my body was broken, my spirit was invigorated with the hope of a future.
Valor would only market good ideas in a world selling not-so-great ideas. Valor would stand for courage and integrity amidst unethical marketing schemes.
Along with marketing good ideas, we envisioned Valor holding conferences. With my background in event coordination and marketing and Michael’s background in sales and marketing, this dream seemed tangible until it would seem like everything fell apart.
Just a week or two after our dream was conceived, I had an attack on my body that caused almost hourly seizures. I could no longer traverse to the backyard swing due to severe sensory issues and the inability to sit up more than minutes.
I remember Michael holding my hand and reading our dreams out loud in prayer form on our first anniversary. But after that December day, the dreams were muted in a sea of continued turmoil and trauma.
How many good dreams die because the persistent waves of life pound them with such force that they have no chance to see the light of day? I don’t know the number, but that almost became our dream of Valor. Until another dark time appeared carrying a ray of light.
That would be this dark season. A dark season that is palpable not solely on an individual level, but on a national and even global level. The pandemic of COVID-19 touches almost everyone’s lives causing uncertainty and a sense of disconnect from an enforced isolation. But it’s also in this dark time where Michael and I saw a need that needed to be met.
So, what’s in the future with our vision you might ask? We hope in the upcoming future to offer at least one conference a month. But as our team grows, we want to grow the value and quantity of our conferences as well as added value of a social networking community and courses from a Christian worldview all for our members.
Eventually, as the COVID-19 situation improves, we hope to offer a hybrid of in-person and digital conferences. That’s why if you trust us now in our launch, we want to reward you by giving you the same monthly price forever. So as our rates increase, if you stay consistent with your membership, we will ensure you never pay above the rate you’re paying now. We may offer deals in the future, but it will never be this good again. That’s our big thank you from us to you for believing in the vision alongside us.
We hope to grow with you in valor through these upcoming resources.
