  1. Rachel,
    Thank you for this reminder that much of our faith is “caught” vs. being “taught”. When we allow people to look on and to journey with us, they can’t help but see the foundation and source of our faith! When I am hesitant to share, I remind myself it’s about Him and not about me. Praying for you in your move…here is one of my favorite verses from Exodus that has sustained me as I’ve moved around the country:
    “See I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared.” (Exodus 23:20)
    Blessings,
    Bev

      Bev, I love the phrase you use – our faith is caught rather than taught. Keep using that one. And thank you for praying for us and giving me one of your favorite verses. It especially got my attention because I have been preparing my #BeBoldGirl post for Tuesday – the next chapter of Yar’s story – and I talk about guardian angels. Yet, I hadn’t applied it to myself. Isn’t it just like God to use to make sure I did? Your comment has brought light to my path. Thank you.

          I am grateful to have you as my friend, Yar. You are wonderful and I hope you continue to know your worth to God.

  2. Agustin. I love it. We can easily forget that these were real people in the biblical stories. Thanks for drawing us in and turning our hearts toward Truth.

      Thanks, Michele. It does make them seem more like real people when they have a name. I love finding fitting names.

  3. Oh, Rachel how we all need to hear how it’s ok to be different and also live and be with those who are different. We so often want to be with those who are similar to us, but so often we can grow and bring others to Christ by being open with those different than us. Nicely done!
