that time she asked me

Jessi Connolly was one of the first bloggers that I started reading everyday about a year or so ago. My friend Margaret tweeted about Influence, I looked into it, saw some girl named Jessi, and fell for her writing. I fell for her love for Jesus, her sincere understanding of the Gospel, her passion for truth, her creative ability, and just her!

She did my blog design which resulted in countless emails over a series of months. After the design was done, the emails continued, fewer and fewer, and then over time, more and more. Over the past few months, through the providence of God (I really really truly believe that), we've become sweet friends.

We met for the first time about a month or so ago via video. With her kids roaming in and out of the camera shot, we chatted. We'd been planning for ages to have this chat, and it was just what my heart needed.

A cool thing about Jessi is that she has spotted some gifts in me that I didn't really realize were in me, and God has done some serious speaking to my heart simply because of this friendship. I always know that if I'm feeling a bit under the weather, spiritually speaking, Jessi will speak some health and wellness back into me.

A few weeks ago, Jessi asked me to become a contributing writer for Naptime Diaries. I'm honoured and delighted to be over at Naptime Diaries today to share how Proverbs 18:10 is a really good space to start a refresh journey.

An extra fun perk of this day, is that today only, Jessi is offering a special sale on her print shop! YAY!  So be sure to pop on over to her blog to read my words, or just skip to the bottom and get that coupon code and buy yourself a scripture print (or 25)!
