222nd Post Celebration
& BIG Autumn Missions GIVEAWAY!!!

A great deal has happened in this teeny tiny spot of cyber space since it first began.  What started as just a way to write "whatever" for myself went through a complete change in April 2011.  What changed?  Well, for starters it went through a blog name change that was fresh on my heart, a completely new look courtesy of Plumrose Lane, and I began writing with purpose and intentionality to meet women where they are.  Writing was no longer for me.  It became for you, the reader, to encourage you in your life and heart, and give God glory and point to Him throughout.
Since that time I have been amazed by how quickly this site has grown, the steady incline of daily views and unique visitors, your comments, encouragement, frequent email correspondence, and your continued support during my lack of posting while ill in the first trimester of this pregnancy.  Thank you and to God be the glory!  :)

To celebrate my 222nd post, plus feature
a missions organization that is close to my heart,
I have multiple items to GIVE AWAY!!!
{You are my friends, and I don’t take it for granted.}
