So much is unsettled in the world. Texas will be feeling the effects from Hurricane Harvey for a long time to come. Hurricane Irma will soon be bearing down on the state of Florida, where many of my friends are seriously stuck. The eastern coastline is at risk.

Rise Up, O Woman, Rise Up! We are dreamers. Believers. Worshipers. Dare devils. Warriors. We have been gifted by the Almighty. It’s us He’s entrusted with God-breathed life. We are the mothers.

35 feels like… Purple hair, don’t care. Confidence. Maturity. Wonder. Questioning. Anything is possible. Health. Love. FREEDOM. Realizing who my Daddy is. The best friendships ever. Servanthood. Motherhood. Falling in love over and over again. Self-actualization. Community. On this, the 35th year of my life, I am amazed at what I have learned, what I’ve… Read More This is 35.
