How a Flawed Disciple Rediscovered Her Voice


I love that the twelve disciples were ordinary, human men.

They had flaws. Peter was loud and obnoxious. John was slightly competitive. Thomas struggled with unbelief. While others were in the spotlight, Andrew was mostly behind the scenes.

I don’t know about you, but I can identify with each one of these character traits.

When I look at myself in the mirror, I see a woman with so many flaws. So many that there is no way she could ever be considered a 13th disciple.

Can be real with you?

Today I have the honor of being a guest over at my friend Suzie’s blog. Suzie is one of my favorites. Join me over there today for the rest of the story, will you? And when you come, stay for a while and get to know my  friend. I know you’ll love her like I do!
