This Christmas, give that young woman in your life a gift that feels like a warm hug. (Read the following email over my shoulder to understand this phrase.)
“When I Read Your Book, I Felt a Warm Hug”
“Thank you for writing Confessions of a Boy-Crazy Girl. Several months ago, my boyfriend broke up with me the same way you were broken up with, with the line ‘the spark comes and goes.’ He also told me a couple other things that really broke me. I felt so alone and struggled with anxiety and depression for about six months this year (which has never happened before). I believed the lies that I wasn’t good enough for anyone and that no one understands me.
“But when I read your book, I felt a warm hug.I have never felt so heard and encouraged by anyone before. As soon as I finished Confessions of a Boy-Crazy Girl, a weight came off my shoulders. My ex doesn’t have power over me; My hope is in the Lord and nothing else.
You have helped me be able to trust the Lord more than I ever have before. I’ve given Him my desire for marriage and have been able to have some peace. I still read parts of your book on a weekly basis to remind myself of God’s truth on the situation.”

Our five-year wedding anniversary passed quietly on October 3. While our actual anniversary was fairly ordinary, we left town a couple weeks later for a short anniversary trip. I’m so glad we did. More
I used to (wrongly) think Christianity was all about what a Christian can’t do. And I don’t think I’m alone in that belief. I recently learned that this post has been my most popular post for the past five years. Every day it has new clicks, so I’ve beefed it up with new content. I’m reposting it here in the hopes that it will help many know Christianity is not defined by what we can’t do, but by what Christ did on behalf of sinners like us! More

“Oh, what a beautiful mornin, Oh, what a beautiful day, I have a wonderful feeling, Everything’s going my way.” I don’t know about you, but as a mom of toddlers, mornings aren’t usually beautiful.
