Remembering Mandy Kelly from Worshipful Living

Tuesday, March 21, started like any other day around our house. I got the kids off to school and came home to do some work.  Around 9:30 a member of our Facebook Mastermind Group (a group of about 10 Christian women bloggers that support one another through blogging and life) posted that she'd seen some chatter on Mandy's Facebook profile and wanted to see how we could pray for her.  It wasn't 20 minutes later that we all realized what was going on...

Confessions of a Boy-Crazy Girl {Review + Giveaway}

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts."
