Worn, Torn and Worth a Million Bucks

I have this t-shirt. . . 

I have a t-shirt-it’s really more like a muscle shirt, that is black and has flames across the chest. It says “girl gang“ next to the flames. It has rips, tears and holes all over it that were intentionally put  there.

Protected. Worthy. Loved.

Don’t forget to replenish...

The formula for adequate hydration is to take your body weight in pounds and divide that number by 2 to determine the number of ounces of water you should consume at the minimum each day. But what are you doing to ensure you consume adequate spiritual hydration? Just like when we are outdoors in the heat, we need even more water—so it is for our soul as well.

With so much going on in our world right now, it seems a bit like we’ve stepped right into a Continue reading
