A Year of Blogging!
Happy 1st Anniversary
Wow, I can't believe I've been writing for 1 year today. The picture above is a small collage from some of my personal favorites from the past year.
Thank you to all who have read and encouraged me along the way. I know I have more stories and more insights to share. The Lord isn't finished with me yet. The last month or so has . . .
Write 31 Days Challenge - Day 31
When I felt the Lord nudging me to join this Write 31 Days Challenge, it seemed so crazy. I was just launching my first blog a few days before I was going to need to write and post EVERY SINGLE DAY for a MONTH!
Well, I did it! Here we are at Day 31! Actually, it was not me, it was God who did it through me. I have lived Philippians 4:13 . . .
Friendships that Honor God
Write 31 Days Challenge - Day 30
What a beautiful reminder this quote is for me from Chapter 6, Friendship Breakups, in Lysa TerKeurst's "Uninvited". The whole message of the book is getting past rejection and to "live loved".

Tasks or Blessings?
Write 31 Days Challenge - Day 27

Sweet Smell of Forgiveness
Write 31 Days Challenge - Day 26
Several years ago Jonathan and I led a study on forgiveness in our church. I thought I knew most of the verses, and thought I understood it. In the midst of our teaching, God asked me to put it into practice.
