  1. Shauna, that would be a step out in faith for me. But, I think I’d love to do it. Do you still have my CWG e-mail address? Contact me through that and we can discuss it.

  2. I find it interesting that you and I share the same life verse! I am currently participating in an online bible study through Proverbs 31 Ministries, and just finished reading chapter 2. One of the closing thoughts in this chapter is that God has “plopped” people into our lives for a reason. You certainly were brought into mine. Knowing that you have battled through a not-so fun year gives that much more meaning to this verse.

    You mention interviewing someone “who lives out this verse.” Seems from what little I know through your sharing here that you would fit that description. I have chosen the word perseverance for my “word of the year”. Could I interview you for my blog? (Really stepping out in courage here because I have not done something like this, and do not want you to feel obligated if you are not comfortable. It was just a mini brain storm I had.)

    have a blessed day. So glad that you have resume your blog…you certainly have given me much food for thought!
