Rise Up, Lioness

Last month in my You Can, We Can update post, I mentioned that I was joining in with Lauren from 34 Magnolia Street on a new campaign called Operation Read your Shelves.

Tiny Flashlights

Heads up: this will be a long post. You have been warned. :smile: Three days ago we had someone pray over us and our infertility.
