Call Me the Clay

On a Journey to See What God & This Life Has In Store

Meet the Author

K Hayes-2 2018

Hello!  Glad you stopped by – really!  I started this blog in order to get my thoughts down in writing as I wander my way thru a very intense personal journey.  I have been thru hell and back in my life and I finally came around to the realization that I needed to seek a closer relationship with God.  I’ve always had one, but not a deep, life-changing one.

I feel like I wasted so much of my life, just barely getting by – while watching who seem to have it all.  They seem happy and content.  Don’t misunderstand me….I KNOW we all have problems and trials in our lives.  No question.  But they seem so blessed.  And I wanted that.

I am a divorced gal with 2 kids.  My beautiful daughter is now 26 years old, married to a fabulous guy and they have a 3-year old daughter and a 1-year old son.  I also have a 13 year old son at home.  And yes, I had him late – at age 41, thanks for asking. No, he was not an “uh-oh”.   Needless to say, my life is never boring! LOL

God and my family are the center of my world.  I value trust and honest, open communication above everything else.  I am the type of person who will give you the shirt off my back until you deceive me.  If you do that, I will forgive you – but it will never be the same.  Not sure if that is a good thing or not…..but I intend to find out on this here journey of mine.

Have any questions? Comments?  Feel free to speak up — but please, don’t trash me or my ideas.  I am ever-changing and growing as God sees fit.  I may not have the same feelings, opinions, ideas that I had just a few years, months, weeks or even days ago.  Don’t judge – it’s not your place, honestly.

I am an Operations Manager for a commercial real estate firm.  My background though has always been in Human Resources prior to my current job – I suppose that is because I am very much a people person.  I enjoy people.  I thrive on making others smile and/or helping to resolve issues.  Bad part of that is that I tend to forget to take care of myself in the meantime.  Again, something I am SLOWLY trying to get a handle on.

I have also been in the insurance field (life, health, auto, property), in medical claims processing, warehousing and retail.  So as you can see, I am a well-rounded individual with a lot of ‘been there, done that’ experience.

My on-again, off-again desire is to speak and/or train others about God.  Don’t ask me why – as I’m a pretty quiet person for the most part.  But it seems to be a growing ember within me and if that is where God leads me, then so be it.

And the rest of my story and who I am?  Well, come along with me and lets find out!

  1. Hey Kelly, we “hooked up” on twitter with the Jesse Jackson/Phil Roberson tweets. Anyway checked out you website/bolg and wanted to let you know that I have some blogging experience and yes, I’m in the insurance fields also. In particular, I wanted to offer an answer to to 1) “My dream is a desire to speak/train God, You said you didn’t know why. Ans also why you’ve gone through so much and seem like other have so much more than you do at this stage of your life. If you are like me and have dealt with some pretty heavy “needs” in your life, calling out to God… then imagine if you didn’t have God to call out to. Most of use go through something and at some point in our lives reach a spot that we, ourselves, through our own efforts can not solve the problem. It we are alone, without God, then when we reach that impossible spot… we feel nothing but despair… it is is a lonely place. But if we have God in our lives we don’t feel despair.. be fee empowered by relying on him. Perhaps you want others empowered rather than feel lost, helpless in despair. What do you think?

    Then the issue about others that have so much, the feeling that you aren’t where you want to be at this stage of your life… Well, it says in the Bible that what ever has happened to you in your life was REQUIRED. You would be Kelly without going through it.

    So just trust God. Kelly is exactly where God intended for Kelly to be. Obedient.

    • Dave – thank you for that! I get what you are saying for sure….and I agree – if things always worked out for us – why would we then turn to God? We tend to take things for granted easily.

      And I agree too – that what I have gone thru has helped to mold me into the person I am. As the saying goes ‘God isn’t thru with me yet’ is applicable regardless of age.

      I really appreciate your feedback – some days are ‘down’ days and it helps to hear from others!
