The world is collectively suffering right now. Some areas more than others, or in different ways than others. There is panic. I don't think I need to mention why, because we probably hear the word 100 hundred times a day already. It incites anxiety, fear, and maybe depression. It leads many to look out for...

Huge changes and decisions were on the horizon. They had been decisions which had been coming for a long time, but were still a struggle to make. Even the wonderful things in life can cause stress, uncertainty, and questioning. People whom I hadn't spoken to in years emailed and called me. "Hey Lianna, how's it... Continue Reading →
Last year, I started a ministry for single Christian women. I saw that this is a large population, but it did not seem that there was much which focused on their unique needs.
