This woman

This woman is the reason I am counting my blessings more throughout each week, and here in print every Monday.

Her words at the Relevant Conference are part of the reason I’m still even blogging – telling my story, as she says. Writing.

And now there is her book. Full of more fabulous words. But most of all, full of Jesus.

If you want to read a book, other than the Bible, that will make you hunger for more of Him and discover anew the joys and blessings right in front of you, THIS is the book for you.

I’m reading it along with the Bloom Book Club over at (in)courage and it’s not too late for you to join in – we’re only on Chapter 5! You will be so inspired and blessed by the videos with Ann, Jessica and Angie, as well as the conversation that follows in the comments section of each post.

And then join me in continuing to count my blessings…
