So encouraging!

Bonnie Gray consistently encourages me. I have read both of her books, participated in her 40 days of Rest book club, and I follow her on Facebook/Instagram. Call me a groupie, but to be encouraged by soulful authenticity is exactly what I need in this season of my life. I highly recommend!!
