Wow. The Stories of How These Women Prayed Moved Me.

How to Pray by artofabeautifullife.com

I love when we hear a story of someone’s life, and it touches us in that deep place where it whispers softly. This. Do this. This is how you want to live. These are two stories of two mothers, one setting an example of how to pray, and the other interceding for her 12 year old son who is a gang member coming home at 3:00 AM.

The Journey Awakens the Soul | Read more... artofabeautifullife.com

I discovered that it is sometimes on the journey that we find ourselves. -Topaz

This is where we get those experiences that stay with us for a lifetime. These are the things that make our life. These are the things that…

How we wish to seem might be telling us who we really want to be, maybe even who we were created to be, but we are stuck, stuck in old patterns, hurts, habits, thoughts, and actions. Maybe we just haven’t learned all we need to learn yet. Maybe we are still in the design process…

Tribes are a beautiful thing. These are our people, the people to whom we belong and who belong to us. While we can have many friends, our tribe is special.
