How many dreams are paralyzed by these two little words?
“What if I can’t handle it,” changed my major from Elementary Education to a general BS in Human Development.
“What if he finds someone else while I’m gone,” canceled a semester in Ireland.
“What if they think I’m a freak,” gave birth to a pen name I used to share my testimony for almost two years.
Countless friends I never met, fulfilling jobs I never started, beautiful places I haven’t seen… “What if…” was an invisible prison I built one fear-filled lie on top of another.

Now For This Week’s Link Up!
Let’s bless and encourage one another in our walk with the Lord…
We hope this link-up will be a source of encouragement each week. If you are a Christian blogger, we invite you to link up and meet new friends within the Christian blogging community. If you’re a reader, we encourage you to visit new bloggers and discover women who love Jesus as much as you do. Whoever you are, we hope you’ll meet Jesus here.
Join us each Friday for the Grace & Truth Link-Up!
Lauren loves Jesus, her husband, and caffeine. The order of these can change depending on how tired she is (who can relate?). When her two daughters, stepson, and 4 grandchildren get to be too much, she practices yoga. God graciously allows her to share her adventures, victories, and flub-ups from her laptop. And we are super excited to welcome her to our Grace & Truth Hostess team.
You can welcome her with a tweet by clicking below, and be sure to hop over to her blog and say hi as well.Welcome to the Grace and Truth Link-Up hosts, Lauren! Click To Tweet
