My One Brave Thing

Brave. It’s #myoneword for 2018. It popped up everywhere. It’s what I need to be to make the changes I planned for this year. It’s my reminder to live by faith one step at a time. A nagging voice comes around asking, “What is the one brave thing you’ll do this year?” I have no […]
