can you even!?! What a story!

Two Liberty University students chatting on a bus discovered they lived in same Chinese orphanage 15 years ago

Recently, our little song, A Woman, a seeing song, a healing song, a telling song, was invited to the Today Show and Amy Grant and Ellie Holcomb got to go and speak and tell the glory story of Jesus’s rising to millions. They got to go and speak of a project that we are all part of, called The Faithful Project.

In the Faithful Book, come read through a collection of thought-provoking stories, lyrics, photos, and art created for women, by women. Influential women share their own stories and praise God for His work in their lives.

Faithful guides readers through the pages of Scripture to increase understanding of how God has always valued the integral role of females and how that shapes the lives of women today.

You will find hope, encouragement, and a strong sense of community in this beautiful, eclectic collection of writing, photos, and lyrics that reflect God’s faithfulness.

just so beautiful: How Great Thou Art

[ Print’s FREE here: ]

Here, let’s make this real, real easy today: Just focus on the good.

“You’ll do best by filling your minds…
on the best, not the worst; 
the beautiful, not the ugly;
things to praise, not things to curse… 
Do that, & God, who makes everything work together, 
will work you into His most excellent harmonies.”
Philippians 4:8 MSG

That’s all today, Soul: Just Focus on the Good – 
Focus more on living Truth than pointing out error,
Focus more on celebrating the beautiful than decrying all that’s broken,
Focus more on being a servant than on being right.

[excerpted from our little Facebook family … come join us each day?]

Dare to fully live!

That’s all for this weekend, friends.

Go slow. Be God-struck. Grant grace. Live Truth.

Give Thanks. Love well. Re – joy, re- joy, ‘re- joys’ again

Share Whatever Is Good.
