So to each of you who read this, thank you—for your encouragement, for your support.  I am better for your presence in my life.  As Paul said to the church at Philippi, “Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God!” {Philippians 1:3}

  12. I love this !! One of the mottos that my bible study group has tried to live by the last few years is “Be Real”. The ministry team wants the ladies that join to know that we are a safe place to celebrate, cry, admit falling and anything that happens in life. Thanks for sharing. Have a great week.

    1. Thanks, Amy! And oh if we could all learn to really live with that motto … be real! Love it!
