Read this little snippet from Anne Lamott’s FB page today & it encouraged me to put a few words down today.  As usual, thanks Annie. For a couple of days, I’ve been marinating on something my friend, Sarah Bessey wrote on her FB page, “Sometimes, the most fearless thing we can do is keep showing […]

I shared a FaceBook post last week that made me feel powerfully vulnerable and ashamed.  Bloggers call this a “vulnerability hangover,” which seems pretty all true.  I shared it after tossing and turning one night, after hearing some harsh words spoken about me, I wanted to rise up and defend myself.

“Grace, you are living in sin.? What does it mean to be living “in sin??  Ya know, as opposed to every human being’s regular old daily sin habit –lust in the heart, hatred, jealousy, etc.   Every day, each one of us -by the Lord’s standards- falls short blah blah blah. We all know the […]
