TOGETHER… Our hearts for YOU!


“Each friendship represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive and it’s only by this meeting that a new world is born.” Anais Nin 

We are all on a journey.

It began the day we were born and will continue until our last breath.  One thing we have learned along the way is this: doing this adventure called life is so much better when we do it TOGETHER.

Friends are a sweet gift, their story and their experience always enlarge our world.(and make it more fun!)

Over the past year or so, Heather, Taryn, Lora, Jill and I, have met for coffee regularly and in so doing have found our worlds being enlarged.  We have grown to savor these moments together and have discovered  we have “one heart” to see the girls in the DC Metro area flourishing in life.  This blog was inspired by our  desire to see YOUR HEART connect to this amazing wondrous God that we love and to see you connect to this vast sisterhood that surrounds you.

Over the next few months as we lead up to the Beautiful You Conference 2013, we will each share little tidbits that we hope will help you on your journey. Here is what my beautiful friends are saying about this blog.

“I’m so excited for this blog and I pray that it will encourage, refresh and challenge you as you hear from and share with other women in the DC metro area and around the world.” – Jill Whitlow, The Community Church

“We have a passion to see women living ‘strong in the grace’ that is on their lives through Jesus.  A life fully dependent on Him!” – Heather Giroux, The City Church

“We want to see women living up to their full potential in Christ, connected with one another, and growing in their faith.” – Lora Batterson, National Community Church

“We are passionate to see women thriving in every season of life while He defines their identity, strength, and value and nothing else!” – Taryn Stine, DCMetro Church

Won’t you join us on this adventure?

All my love,

Donna xoxo
