One Thing That Will Make You Brave {linkup}

Do you know there's just one thing that you need in order to be truly brave? Join us for this week's Grace & Truth linkup!

“Brave. It’s a word that makes women everywhere sparkly and giddy because it’s something that we all wish for. It’s like something that’s so far out of reach for us. It nudges at something deep within, because if we’re brave, it means that we’ve achieved and conquered, right?” Oh, how I long to be brave – […]
