{Lissa and Game On: BRAVE}

I wish to tell you all about an amazing and bright light:

She is amazing!!!!
Or rather, God is amazing through her and
she has given him her whole heart to bring out his perfect in her!

Lissa's life walk shows that one can do ALL things through Christ who gives us strength!

Becoming Brave Amazing Women. Certainly our walks of what we are going through look to the eyes different. What is the same is that we are two women learning to stand strong, face their fears and fly. I am certain many of you might feel the same way walking through a similar walk. Learning to face storms with a fierce gracefulness. If you watch Lissa's posts you will see that goodness her journey has been challenging! What I hope you see though is what brave and just heart beautiful looks like from her perspective as a Wife, Mother, Sister, Daughter and what true love for Christ can do to a woman's heart. You can't help but get all sunshined up and feel brave after reading her posts and the tapestry of her true heart as she paints it with words and images of lovely and just cool is she.

I wish to tell you to watch Lissa on the outside and to be her friend, I am amazed and humbled by her and feel so very blessed that God crossed our paths as friends in life.

She is hilarious too people and just a blast to talk with!

Lissa you are a gift from God and I am inspired by you greatly.
I pray all your goals and dreams come true.
I pray you perfect in your heart and world, I just do!
More than anything, I pray God fully in your life and stand next to you as your friend cheering you on in half marathon, Brave Girl conference, anything you choose to accomplish, or just being fully you in Christ and standing as your friend. I am honored.

You are amazing Girly and I wish you to know we all see wonderful sunshine in you! Thank you for helping me see to that I can be brave and face storms, follow through with goals...even if a goal take the opportunity to learn drive a tractor at my Mom's farm,

learn how to build a swing,

begin training for a triathlon, or start taking steps to start a company, or just facing my storms while holding onto Christs hand. By your walk you have shown me to listen to God and find His true in me and really face me and my fears. You have shown me to turn my heart towards faith and become the woman graceful and true that God desires for me to be and trust in Him. I am certain you have shown this by your walk to many and we are all better women for it. More than anything you have shown me to lay down my hurts, my happy, my all before God and allow him to do his wonder and works to make me the best I can be for Him. For that many tears and smiles flow and I owe you so very much in friendship.

Like a kindred spirit you are to me and I am certain many. Grateful for you!

Many of you already know Lissa, but if you don't go and read her blog. Her life and journey will bless you and touch your life with amazing light!

You Lissa will be a true crown of splendor in the Lord's hand.
You just will in every way!

Happy Day to you all.

Mwuah, Me

dearest friend Kristin, I love you with my WHOLE heart! You're a TRUE, supportive friend! I KNOW that as God knew this difficult time in my life was coming he was preparing me for it by bringing me certain friends to pray and SEE ME THROUGH!!! You have been one of those friends for me! I know that the craziness of our lives right now has kept us from talking much but know that you're in my heart and I think you're one special, beautiful lady!

Then I will come relax in it with you while we have something yummy to drink and chat the day away! xoxoxoxoxoxox
