About six months ago, I got introduced to a little community called #SheReadsTruth. The idea was simple: women reading the Bible together, learning together, growing together. Today, #SheReadsTruth celebrates its one-year anniversary, and I am so excited to celebrate with them today. While I would love to do a video, our home is a little crazy today after a 5k and preparing our house for a church intern to come and live with us for the summer, so instead, I'll just say this:

#SheReadsTruth has really challenged me spiritually in a spiritually challenging year. (Does that make sense?) There were a lot of times this past year where I began to doubt God's goodness and his sovereignty in orchestrating different circumstances in my life, from the job search to being in a long-distance relationship with a very busy first year med student, to figuring out what I really wanted out of life after my last year of college was over. I am thankful for the women of #SheReadsTruth sharing their struggles and their life right alongside mine (even when I didn't feel like sharing) and for getting me out of my comfort zone in studying the Old Testament! Let's just say there's a very slim chance that I would have studied Nehemiah on my own this spring. (Note: it's actually pretty boss and you should check it out for yourself)

So THANK YOU to Raechel and all of the women who decided to make #SheReadsTruth a place to come and meet with God this year. Can't wait to see what is in store for this awesome community and if you want to check it out for yourself, click here and see what this community has been for so many other women as well.

Happy June!
