    Wow, God works in marvelous ways. I had no idea you had started this project, and yet, here I am, and it’s no accident.

    I just wrote a post on my blog today about choosing one word to focus on for the year, as recommended by Debbie Macomber in her book One Perfect Word. And then, in reading another blog, I was led here.

    My word for the year is “overcome.”

  • april

    thank you so much for the beautiful button, melanie!

    i proudly included it in my blog post today, where i detailed the whole process of how i chose my word of the year.
