  1. Even though I can’t participate in Book Club right now…I have to say, I loved this part of Jennifer’s book!! I am a deep sea diver and I was truly encouraged to keep being vulnerable…not for affirmation from others, but so that others can see my weaknesses and see Christ’s strength working through and in me. To Him be the glory!! It is only in Him that I find my identity.

    Loved this part,


  2. I was one of those starting to tune out at “relational buzz,”but figured I’d keep reading…Wow, am I glad I did! Every other point seemed to hit home. Thank you, Kris, for helping me see parts of myself in a new light and appreciate what God’s plan might be to use those parts…as I stay grounded in my One worth-defining relationship with Jesus. Thank you, Kris!

  3. Kris,

    I am somewhat of an introvert. When I really “meet” people I want to know them–deep down. Jesus “hotwired” me to more easily relate to geriatric (older) friends. I do that by praying for them and helping them in any way they need. It can be a phone call, let them cry on my shoulder, or a simple smile & hug to say I love you & I care. That is done mostly at the assisted living where my dad lives. Everyone needs someone to brighten their day.

    Blessings 🙂

    • I love hearing about the ways you care and minister to your senior friends. Everyone does need someone…it sounds like God puts you in the right places to serve some of his people. What a gift!
