The Power of Yes




A small word with a big impact.

One syllable that can lead to incredible adventures, new relationships, and abundant life.

Recovery has been a journey of rediscovering me, and becoming who I’d always been.

    • The Lord has given you a great gift and a calling that appeals to all on the journey to becoming whole. Your approach is sweet and humble and very encouraging. I pray the seeds you are planting will spring up a crop of life and healing wisdom for all the Lord sends your way. Have a lovely night!

Have a sweet day living in His love!

    I am humbled that you visited the blog I steward for Him – looking forward to learning more about Christ Jesus with you, dear sister!

      • Not too many of us with either version of that name; as I recall it means “divine”! Praise God our true identity is of Him, indeed, made in His image and being transformed back to the glory we had with Him before the fall! He lives in us! 😃
