I know it's a Friday afternoon and you're probably headed into weekend mode in just a few short hours, but stay with me for just a moment. I wasn't going to write today, I've been knocking off my to-do list in preparation for the weekend and was going to just skip over this Friday and join you back here on Monday.

And then as I reflected back on the week, I was reminded of all the women who wrote such inspiring and encouraging words this week. I couldn't keep their words to myself and thus I'm sharing them with you before I take off for the weekend. If you have a quiet place to yourself this weekend, grab your drink of choice, and sink into the words of these women who are speaking truth into the corners of the web. I hope they will speak into your heart as they did my own.
