  1. My dear friend Carly at “To write their names in the Sand.” A woman using her grief at losing her son to provide comfort to others.

  2. Oh, just to whisper…
    These women, Holley….
    Oh, these women…
    ~happy tears~
    Don’t you want to be even more sold out for Jesus? Reading the faith-stories of these women make me wildly nod my head yes!
    Thank you, Gutsy God-girls…
    You shine Jesus-hope!
    All’s grace and so grateful….

  3. What an encouragement to simply be together here, in a place like this! There are so many gusty girls out there, women who dare to simply walk in obedience to Christ-even when it makes absolutely no sense. I think of my dearest friend who, together with her husband, took a step (and a move) to plant a church. I’m honored to be on the journey with such an amazing woman.

  4. Oh what an honor to have a post about my guts! LOL.. 😉
    I am so not brave, and it is only by His strength that I get out of bed each day to face my life…and boy has it been a rough life.
    He is the one that makes me have guts!

  5. Sounds to me like we need a T-Shirt made. I am slowly being transformed to a “gutsy girl” and I would wear a T-Shirt proclaiming it in a minute. I’ve lived on the other side and I don’t ever want to go back.
