Not Part of the Plan- GirlDefined

I was so thankful to again be chosen to be a part of the launch team for GirlDefined’s new book: “Not Part of the Plan: Trusting God with the twists and turns of your story.” I was so excited when they announced this new book. I’ve been so encouraged as I’ve followed the story of Bethany’s long journey of singleness and Kristen’s trial of infertility. Their openness to these struggles have encouraged me so much as I see their love for the Lord grow even in the midst of hard.

I am pretty excited to see how well it will go!

 So yeah I just wanted to share that with you all!
 And I would post the link here for Etsy, but I cant' do it at the moment! Sorry!
Sincerely Aly on Etsy!
