Labels

Hello, I'm Elisa. And I'm a ___________. How do I fill in that label? How would you? Does it match how God "labels" you? Elisa Labels By Amanda Anderson Several years ago, I went through a very painful breakup with one of my closest friends, and it devastated me. I had just come through an intense time with her, trying to support her through a brutal divorce that left her and her children in financial distress. Just as we were beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel for her family, our friendship plunged into darkness. I sought help and solace in prayer from a trusted woman in my church family.

Doing Hard Things

Doing the hard thing is just ... plain ... hard. My dear friend Carol Kuykendall shows us how.

Not much was left over, but there it stood reminding me of its 6-layers of goodness, motioning me toward a small slice of yumminess to go with my coffee on a cozy rainy day - an oddity in the hot Texas summer.
