Today I have the pleasure of introducing you to writer, speaker, and Bible teacher Lauren Crews! With a Master's of Divinity, Lauren's heart is to encourage her sisters in Christ to become women of strength. She is one of those women who exudes the joy of the Lord, and I hope you'll be encouraged by her words as she discusses true friendship in today's online world.
Easy and adorable, they're the perfect combination for any book-lover's upcoming Halloween needs.
Since many of you have been asking how conference went (thank you!), I figured I would give you a brief update here.
It's that time of year again! The ACFW Conference is in just a few days, and I could not be more excited. I'm linking up with the amazingly talented Laurie Tomlinson and her pre-conference Mix & Mingle as a way to "meet" fellow writers before conference begins!
With Labor Day behind us and the temps dropping to the mid-sixties, fall is quickly headed our way! Before it arrives I wanted to share with you some of my favorite reads from this past summer.
I was a sophomore in college. Standing across the kitchen counter from my best friend and trying in vain not to cry all over the oatmeal chocolate chip cookies I'd just pulled from the oven. My feelings had been hurt.
If you want the type of friendship that lasts through all seasons, then you need to be willing to weather the storms together. But how do you get to that level of friendship?
My closest friends are those who have stood with me on the mountain-tops, not because they loved the view, but because they encouraged me in the climb.
Unless you're one of those girls who was blessed by the fairies at birth and spend your days frolicking through life gathering friends as easily as my tennis shoes gather dust, then chances are you've experienced the awkwardness of navigating new social situations.
