Honoring Uncertainty by Chloe Wingerter Thank you for this day of limitless possibilities. Not knowing how things will turn out can be scary. Open me up to choose possibilities, optimism, and faith when jumping into a new situation instead of fear, failure, and a seemingly wrong turn. Convince me that while certainty brings safety, predictability, [...]

Celebrating 9 Years
