Welcome Back, Chante!

This blog sat blank for most of 2013, not because I didn’t have anything to say, and not because I lacked the discipline to write. It sat empty because the impetus needed to write well either wasn’t there or ebbed before I managed to plop myself in front of the computer screen to type. Instead I spent most of my free time praying—by myself, with my housemate, with my prayer partner, with my spiritual director, and with my church family. Some days I spent hours praying; other days I snuck in only a few minutes. But all of the focused time that I spent with God last year provided me with the perspective and fuel that I need to fill up the cyber-pages of this blog in 2014.

I plan to share some amazing stories with you this year—events that happened in 2013 that changed the very make-up of my being, along with the startling, awe-inspiring, wondrous things that will happen this year. I hope that these stories enlighten and encourage you along your journey. And if they do, please drop me a line to let me know, and please share them with your friends and family.

Happy New Year!

Much Love,
