*GIVEAWAY* Writing the Soul: 180 Degree Turn

A month or so ago I was approached to do this post.  I didn’t really know what to expect as I read the words and made sense of what was expected of me.  Tell my story?  What story would I tell?  How would I tell it?  Then it hit me…..the story of Jess and I! […]
