As clients share their hearts during our counseling sessions, I am focused, listening, discerning, concentrating on what is being spoken aloud, with a tenderly observant eye on all those non-verbal messages that are sent from heavily laden souls. When they take the time to send a quick note letting me know where they are on their healing journey, their words have great meaning. The note below is shared with the writer's enthusiastic permission and I offer it today with great delight.
Because God changes lives. And for that I never cease to give Him praise.
And I love recommending a book that I know is simply life-changing! If you're overwhelmed by all that's crowding you out of house and home and are ready to explore an 'experimental mutiny against excess,'Jen Hatmaker's 7 is your baby this summer. And if you're thinking 'mmm ... not so much,' then this is absolutely must reading!

Just wanted to check in with you. I have a good report. I am loving the book 7 which I bought used! It is giving me tons to think about. I have been shopping in my closets and pantry all week. My kids are excited about this project, my husband is thrilled.
I have been really working on respecting him and being a more positive, uplifiting person in his life. I see more life in his eyes than in a long time. I have asked God to restore the years the locusts ate in our marriage and I am expecting great things from Him.
I am convicted that I must do all things for His glory. Thank you!
