What are you craving?

I mean, besides Lindt chocolate or a hot fudge sundae, what are you really craving, deep in your soul?

To be known? To be loved? To not be alone?

I think deep down, behind the scenes, in our heart of hearts, we all have a longing for connection, am I right?

That’s one reason I’m SO excited about the upcoming release of this book, Craving Connection.


Craving Connection

I’ve known about this gem since April and have been DYING to tell you about it!

Listen, if you’re a woman — I don’t care how young or old — you want this book. And if you’re a man reading this — well, do yourself a favor and jump on this opportunity to bless a special lady in your life … your mom, your sister, your wife.

It’s that good.


Craving Connection

I had the amazing privilege to contribute a chapter in this book, alongside some of the women writers I admire most.


I cannot overemphasize how much you are going to love this collection! It’s chock full of gorgeous writing, heartfelt challenges, and practical ways to connect more deeply with God, your friends, and your community.
