2016: My Year of …

The other day, my wise, dear friend Chara challenged a group of women I share life with to participate in a #oneword365 activity. She said, “Think and pray over one word you feel like God is leading you toward for 2016.” Activities like these always seem to scare me a little. Last year, God laid…
