Welcome to the weekend, friends! Fill up your mug with hot coffee and rest a moment with the simple reminders that you are allowed to be here, the mundane is holy, grace can be lavish, and your God is enough. Blessings on your journey.
Break This Habit, Change Your Life by Emily Freeman on Incourage.me
What I am saying is I hope your lack of self-worth never keeps you from buying something for your house or signing up for an exercise class.

3 Lessons from the Backseat Teacher by Heather Henshall
I need to look for the good in everyone rather than being so skeptical. I need the heart in the backseat, the heart of a child.

My daughter reminded me to tame my skeptical mind and love one another no matter the circumstances or my biases.
