Happy Friday!

I'm still giddy over Monday's post. Female friendships are so challenging and beyond rewarding... I was telling my younger sister this week that it took me a long time to figure out how to be a "girl friend" and I still feel like I'm learning a lot. For an introvert, it's so easy for me to hang back and not pursue good friendship. I'm in awe of the way God has kept planting women in front of me – crazily pouring them into my life this summer! – showing me that I do, in fact, have a supportive community around me. I feel like each week I am facing a new fear, and God has been using these women to remind me to be brave. Love all of you ladies that I've spent time with so far this year, new friendships and old, and want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. We are designed for community. Praise!
