    When I was at the Women Discipling Women conference at Grace Community, I went to a session on just that topic. Here’s the link to the book the speaker has written about it if you’re interested:

    I cannot tell you what perfect timing it was for me to read this! Glad I decided to play ‘catch up’! (Neat how things work out that way sometimes, huh?) There are two people very near and dear to me that I’ll be sharing this with. I think it will prove to be a very positive reading for them. (And positive is something they both need in their lives right now!) Thanks for sharing the link!
