By Kathy / December 31, 2013 / 6 Comments

2014. where did it go? every year’s end i think “well, that was a wild year!” with 5 kids, a crazy faith community that’s always filled with pain & beauty (and finally our own space after 7 years), finishing the initial manuscript for faith shift, and the ins & outs of real life, there’s never a […]
