Living Life…

“Whoever find (her) life will lose it, and whoever loses (her) life for My sake will find it.” Matthew 10:39 What does this look like in our day to day life?

I have been absent from blogging life this past month with my in-laws visiting, WDC stuff, helping friends, and overall busyness.

Book Recommendation: The Discipline of Grace

This summer, I have been reading The Discipline of Grace with several of the young women I have been meeting with. I finally finished it this week, and I HIGHLY recommend it.
