Also, I've been invited to share at the kickoff of a new women's study ministry called "When Women Say 'Yes' to God." I am spending lots of time in prayer over this. I'm also studying how God used women in the Bible like Rebekah, Deborah, Esther, Mary, Sarah ... Certainly I wouldn't compare myself to them, but I am reminded that God calls out ordinary people to do extraordinary things, and we shouldn't be afraid to say 'yes' when He is proven faithful and trustworthy. God doesn't call us to be like everyone else. He has amazing plans and purpose for each of us, and we miss the blessing when we succumb to our own fears rather than leaning on His strength.
And finally, here is a link to the blog of the family I will have the privilege of traveling with to receive their son. They have started a beautiful fundraiser. You must check this out! Absolutely beautiful calligraphy!
Like I said, lots of coolness!
