Recovering Identity

Today’s guest post comes from Marni Arnold. She’s sharing a story of recovering identity after losing it in her relationships. I can definitely relate. I hope you enjoy it!

A Rose By Any Other Name…

If you haven’t heard, I am getting married this weekend! That said, I thought the perfect way to leave you all before the big day is with a guest post from my wife-to-be. When she sent this to me, I was blown away. I hope you love it as much as I do. On October […]

When Dreams Don’t Come True

Today’s post is brought to you by one of my very favorites. Cathy has become a great friend from when I stumbled across her site and we connected immediately through our mutual love of reading.

I met Bill…er Pastor (don’t call me Billy) Bill awhile back through Michael Perkins blog. I’ve learned quite a bit from his blog called Cycleguy’s Spin. I think it should be called Cycleguy’s No Spin because he tells it like it is. He breaks down scripture and he shares personal stories about pastoring a church […]
