Becoming by Michelle Obama
So, thank you, Michelle, for sharing your story. The story of you before your husband. The story of you with your husband and behind the scenes of the story we all think we knew, but that honestly, almost no one has a clue about.

Christmas Traditions by Kelli King | Advent 2018 Day 6

Silent Night by Rowena Curtin | Advent 2018 Day 5
Silent Night By Rowena Curtin “We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence.

It’s almost time for …
Let this be my first ever reblog!
I am so happy that many brilliant bloggers are contributing to the advent calendar! I find myself in a compromising situation, not enough people have overcome their shyness and want to contribute. The calendar still needs about 10 contributors and many next week!
