This beautiful friend has taught me the meaning of transparency! I can’t say enough about the impact she has had on me, but it’s all because when I asked her to mentor me over a decade ago, she invited me to see ALL of her life. She didn’t hold back the hard, messy, and confusing parts of life, marriage, and parenting. She was honest and vulnerable about those as well as the exciting and happy parts.
The Biblical community Jesus calls us to means sharing the good, the bad, and the ugly, not just the parts of life we feel are social media worthy.
This picture highlights a very happy moment because I got to see a dear friend whom I hadn’t seen in over a year, but our conversation that happened prior to this picture was about a lot of stretching, grueling, confusing and unknown things in our lives. Never forget to share those nitty gritty parts of life with people! Soul-friendship happens there!!
