For you to click onto this post, where are you today, sis? Are you worried about something? Are you afraid? How about sad or disappointed?

Assembling Together, Blog for Christian Women, Burnout, Inside Out with Courtnaye, Integrity, Speaker for Christian women, Women's Bible Study|

Just looking at the title of this post, what was the first thing that came to your mind? Think about that for a brief moment.

Sometimes, I even [...]
