Truth be told, there are so many chapters and "Thank-you notes" mini sections of the book that spoke to my life - some as much-needed humor relief and some as heart-changing words. I would full on belly laugh out loud while reading on the plane, while sitting poolside at the lazy river on Spring Break, in a pedicure chair and in the solace of my cozy living room while learning about the no-no's of leggings as pants and tights as leggings. And, I was moved to tears and the opening of my heart in hearing God's words to me through Jen's writing as i paged through On Calling and Haitian Women, Run Your Race and Hope for Spicy Families.
I could write all day about 2015 and the work that is being done in my heart and life and how being part of this book launch team has been part of the journey. While I feel like a little-small somebody in CA who was selected among female influencers across the world to help launch this book for the amazing Jen Hatmaker, I know that it was NOT by chance and part of God's doing in my life. It gave me a new bounce in my step as a mom, girlfriend, professional woman and helped nudge me to believe for dreams and purpose in a way I haven't for many years.
