Passion Ignited

Fueled with excitement, I announced to my Women's Small Group that God had called me to write a blog.  As soon as I spoke the words, I closed my eyes expecting to hear laughter or to re-open my eyes and see faces of bewilderment staring back at me.   Three months later, I have a… Continue reading Passion Ignited
