I had a lot to relearn coming back to Djibouti this fall, and a lot to learn for the first time and to keep on learning. In trying to Live New, I started off with my own effort and my own gumption. This sometimes led to going crazy. But my story isn’t over yet.

I’m still trying to be nice and live new and all that, I’m just trying harder to not try so hard.

I’m trying to do it because of grace.

This is an excerpt from my monthly post at SheLoves Magazine today. Enjoy.

I want to be so overwhelmed by grace that the way I love people changes, the way I interact with people I sometimes refer to as my enemies, changes.”
