Can Prudence and Fearlessness Coexist?

I’m currently studying the book of Proverbs in my daily devotional, and the word prudence keeps coming up. It’s one of those virtue words that always makes me think of Pilgrims, but I had to admit that I didn’t know the literal definition. So, I Googled the root word.

A Year of Abundantly More

2018 exceeded my expectations. After three solo trips to Europe in 2017, I hoped to at least match that level of travel in 2018. And God gave me MORE. He went beyond my dreams. I’m learning, more and more, He tends to do that when we surrender to Him. Now, God knows I love travel …

Fashion Week. Attending the Holy Grail in NYC is every fashionista’s dream. Mine included. Easier said than done, though.
