STAND OUT: Recommended Resources

This transformation journey began for me, as many things do, with books that piqued my interest and challenged my thinking. And, as I dug into the Word, I longed to understand more about what a counter cultural life is and how it looks for a very unremarkable wife and mom in north Alabama.  As I studied and prayed, I also sought more resources and insight from others who were farther along in the process than I am.

I’ve listened to podcasts, read blog posts, and marked up books … and today I am sharing my recommended resources list with you. Since I’m still growing and learning, I will be adding to this list so be sure to pin it or bookmark it for future reference.
