Transitions that Lead to Hope

Several people I know, including myself, are muddling through transitions. Some of these uncomfortable places feel like restlessness or that awkward limbo when we try to figure out God’s will for a new season. Some transitions happen automatically because of the seasons of life: the empty nest, a new job or a special calling from … Continue reading

Learning Treasures of Hope

Because one of my core values is life-long learning, I am always reading and scouting out new resources.
