I recommend that you Bookmark, Print and Share this post. After all, what is more powerful than being who God made you to be?

The writer of the above list is Nan Elsik. She read this at the CBC MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group. It was too powerful not to share.  Nan speaks godly wisdom from a funny and genuine heart. She’s one of those people who never pretends to be better or more than who she is. What you see is what you get: Her faith and faults lived out for God’s glory.
