Advent Week One – Sacred Stillness

Prepare Ye the Way

Prepare Ye the Way

I wrote this post several years ago for God-Sized Dreams. The words still speak truth and remind me of the approaching holiday season. I love the idea of preparing not only my home but my heart and soul also. Join me as we dive into this idea of “preparing the...

The Intersection of Surrender and Waiting

The Intersection of Surrender and Waiting
