Hello Girlfriends,
Today is The March for Life in Washington D.C. I wrote this post in 2017, and ever since, I’ve re-posted it each year.

Dear Girlfriends: Last Monday, after I returned from Speak Up, I wrote a Facebook post. Later, I realized I probably should have written it as a blog post, and then, a few friends mentioned the same thing to me. So…here it is!  You know how much I love my ‘outside office’. I’m out here this…

I traveled this evening to the Speak Up Conference in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I’ve never been here before! Over the past few weeks, I’ve spent a lot of time alone with God, thinking, praying and preparing to go. I know it may not seem like a big deal, but if you knew where I’ve come…

Hello Girlfriends, I have been wanting to share a story with you for a few weeks, and there is no better time than Holy Thursday!  I hope you are having a meaningful Holy Week and have been able to carve out moments to be still. I know this can be hard for you who are…
