A little update to continue this journey with you all. Last night was new territory for me, as I had the honor and the privilege of speaking 11119507_10206612723224616_4333682381497684401_nbefore several women at my church. I was asked to share my heart about overcoming some of the adversities mentioned in my book, Running in Heels. There were six of us speakers who were each given a classroom to hold TWO 25 minute discussions on different topics. Although this was out of my norm, I felt an unusual calmness while delivering my message. You can rest assure that this entire event was saturated by prayer!

To be surrounded with precious ladies–many who had read my book, many who hadn’t–all attentive to my every word touched me in a special way. Many came up to me afterwards to give me an encouraging word. But I couldn’t be more blessed than to have the honor of praying for others hurting as they walked through their own struggles.

We should never be ashamed of our pain. Whether you’re going through the valley, or over the mountaintop: WE NEED ONE ANOTHER.
