Do You Live Out West?

This fall, my husband CJ and I will be traveling through the western states of the US on a speaking tour. Do you live anywhere out west? If so, we would love to stop by and visit you! Would you consider inviting us to come and speak at your church, school or home? Simply reply to this e-mail to let me know where you live and we can talk more about it. We don't charge a certain fee, so don't let money stand in the way!

1. Modest Swimwear

Since it's the middle of summer here in the US, I thought it would be good time to talk a little bit about modest swimwear. I have to warn you, this is a very controversial topic and gets some interesting discussions going on the website :) But, I think it's important for every female to think about this topic of modest swimwear, pray about and then decide where you want to go from there.

I recently finished my first triathlon and so was faced once again with a swimwear dilemma. Therefore, I added a section at the end of my article on competitive swimming. Do you have any other thoughts or ideas? If so, read the article and join in the discussion here:
