It's August. And if you're like me, this means your New Year's Resolutions are all but forgotten. Maybe one of your resolutions this year was to read the Bible every day. Maybe you've stuck to the plan (you need a trophy!) or maybe you didn't and you're a little behind your goal. Or a lot behind.

Woman jeans and sneaker shoes

We talk a lot about what we are or aren’t “called” do to, but when’s the last time you truly sought the Lord about your calling? This is something I really wrestled with last summer.

I’m reading Fear and Faith: Finding the Peace Your Heart Craves by Trillia J. Newbell. My sweet daughter, Kali, gave me the book for Mother’s Day. A great gift for the mom who loves to read.
