Life through the Spirit

Not going to lie, I have this awesome dream that my husband and I will meet because he boldly gets up on a stage one day, or boldly approaches me, out of obedience to the Lord and a prompting from the Spirit so strong he can't ignore it, and speaks truth into me in such a [...]

Restore the sparkle to my eyes

At some point over the past year, I stopped journaling. I’ve always been super into writing everything down, in specific detail, no matter what, because I wanted to have everything documented.
