Grace and Truth Link Up

When my twins were little finding some one-on-one time with Jesus was… well, difficult to say the least. Quiet time? That was almost laughable.

I had four children ages five and under, so I learned to work with what I had. But I definitely made it work.

Uncomfortable Grace and Truth

I didn’t choose a word for this year, but that doesn’t mean I’m anti-one word people, or boycotting the one word movement. In fact, the featured post I chose for today is all about one woman and her one word. So just what is…
