Hi girls! I am so thrilled to be the a blogger for this great site. Sarah has assembled a fantastic team of authors, speakers, and teachers just for you. I can't wait to see how God is going to use this blog to challenge you (and me) to live more like the women He's called us to be.

Welcome, Erin. Love your cool black and white picture. Your book cover is soooo inviting.

Lynn, Malted Milk Balls--yuck. Isn't it weird how some people love what others despise? My sister loves MM Balls. I guess you love them or hate them. I love Mounds. :-)
