Trade Stress & Anxiety for Peace & Purpose

I am so excited to help launch THIS BOOK!   Rebekah Lyons has written a book about a pretty awesome swap, if you ask me – stress and anxiety swapped for peace and purpose. Yeah! Sign me UP!   I wouldn’t say I “suffer” from anxiety. Nor, do I live a high-key, stressed out life. […]

Psalm 23 Purpose

What’s it all for? It’s just not about Melanie. It’s not. It’s IS all for HIS Name’s sake. When pulling apart the phrases of Psalm 23 I often tugged on the smallest or simplest words – the ones I would typically skip right over.

Psalm 23 R E S T
