    This was very difficult. There is a list of names that popped into my head and all of them had been left at the Cross long ago. As I read this and the dare it was hard, because my husband has nothing to be forgiven for, I am the one who I can't forgive...

    I truly have never wanted for anything God hasn't provided to me and my family. Contentment is something that the Lord has blessed me with. What I am learning though is that I am now obsessed and lusting after what was given to me, promised to me...

    These last 2 chapters/dares were hard to handle. No because it comes to me difficulty, but that I need to be reminded at all. Christ was so close to me my whole life, until I became self centered. What a fool I was. It felt so good to be in His word with...
