God’s gifts: Reflecting on 2021

Today's guest post comes to us courtesy of my little sister Alexis whom I love to pieces. During the past year I have been humbled by a few of the ‘good’ problems God has allowed me to experience and am grateful for the journey.  Although problems are inevitable in life, some problems are better than...

Thank you for contributing this guest post, Jonna Nixon, answering the question: What gifts has God given you in 2021? For many, the past couple of years have been… well, just hard.
