Sisters, this is a year we will tend the fire in our hearts.

We will stop inhaling the fumes of our mistakes that tell us we are not enough. Not a good enough mom, not pretty enough, not brave enough, not smart enough, not wealthy enough.  Instead, we will choose to tend our God-given fire.  We will love our children with an all consuming love and use our words to warm the world.  We will hold the torch up high and shed light on what matters most.

When our homes feel cold, we’ll light a fire. 

When a friend has lost her spark, we’ll fan her flame. 

When the world seems dark, we will be an ember of hope.

In order to do this we will learn to…

Live expectantly, Surrender daringly, Breathe freely
