In the next 31 Days I am going to write, totally unfiltered, stuff I want to get off my chest, essentially, my heart and guts on anything and everything that comes to mind each morning, or afternoon, or whenever, as I sit at the keys. This is a challenge I’ve chosen to do to stretch myself as a writer and blogger, but just the idea of it is already stretching me as a person. It’s scary to write things. Gradually this page will fill up with 31 posts you’ll be able to access easily if you miss something or want to go back and chew on a topic or even share with a friend.
Please come back, in spite of offense or differing of opinions. In the event you are moved one way or another and feel led to contribute a comment, keep in mind, my underlying perspective I lend to anything I post is to simply try to see two sides to any story. It doesn’t mean we have to agree. It can mean we agree to disagree. There is a lot of love and respect in such a space.
On the “Home” page there is a little box where you can enter your email and subscribe to the posts so they come to your inbox each day. Thank you, in advance, for spending time here reading ANYTHING! My love language is TIME and I know how precious yours is to have set some aside to spend here. I truly pray it encourages you to wrestle and also be still as you allow yourself to explore just how very big God is and how very much He is in love with us!
