What I Will Be Reading on the Plane

 The author, Julie Ferwerda, asked me if I'd take the time to read it and help her get the word out about it.  I am excited, actually really excited, as I read a bit about Julie and this book; I realized that we share the same passion for orphans, for GOD and for Kingdom business! 

I read Julie's testimony and actually found some healing for my heart among her shared words.  We are a lot alike.  As her testimony hit my mind and heart, God's Spirit spoke to me about something I have been struggling with. 

 Julie made me realize that is okay to be me. I am a truth-teller too.  I must speak the Truth in love, even if it means loss for me personally. I will never live watered down.  I will never see things as *gray* it just isn't who I am.  I will always listen for His voice and follow Him, even if I lose friends because of it.  It's okay, because it is how He made me.  If you are my friend, know that I am going to tell you like it is, because I love and care about you.

I can't wait to tell you more about what I find within One Million Arrows-until then, go check out Julie's website and find out more of her God vision.

And my book models...they use to be orphans.
