Today we have a guest post from a good friend of mine, as I have been busy entertaining friends and family over the last few days. I will post some photos of my adventures soon! I hope you enjoy Michelle's thoughts on living an authentic life as a Christian woman....
Living & Loving Outside of the Box... of Crayons "It is for freedom, that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery." Galatians 5:1
When a friend asked me to write about women's roles and discovering the shape of our heart, for women of faith who love Jesus, I thought about a box of crayons.
The story involves a flash bulb memory of an incident years ago in my early 20's when a young man I was dating asked me if I'd teach Sunday School with him. I was thrilled! One of my gifts is creative communication, which I hadn't identified specifically as such at the time, and I was planning to use elaborate illustrations and hands-on practical examples of God's word for a 4th grade Sunday School class. Imagine my surprise when on the day of the teaching, I was handed a basket and instructed that my role was to pass out crayons!
