Day 2 of 30: Pulling Threads

Day 2 of 30: Pulling Threads

Have you ever noticed that when God wants to affirm a message to you that He lets you know more than once and in multiple ways? I absolutely love it when God shows up in this way! I call these occurrences “threads”—it’s when God threads together a direct, personal message to you using different people, […]

Day 1 of 30: Walk With Me

Day 1 of 30: Walk With Me

I awoke to a beautiful morning today, clear and crisp accompanied with a beautiful sunrise and morning fog stretching across a nearby field. As I left my apartment to take my daughter to the bus stop, I opened the door to a Starbucks coffee and a card left on the doorstep by my husband. I […]
