Stepping Out: To a Life on the Edge! 

(Picture stepping out to the edge of a diving board...) Do you have timid tootsies? Are your feet frozen at the far end of the diving board, paralyzed in place? Stuck in your struggles with your past or your pride, your fears or your worries, your anger, insecurity, or more? Some days do you feel like you are taking the cliched one step forward, two steps back?

Despite our timid tootsies, God has called us to STEP OUT of our struggles and away from our comfort zones to a life lived on the EDGE! How is this possible? And what could life look like w-a-y out there? We will take stock of our struggles. Then we'll view what life might look like beyond the foothold of struggle and w-a-y out there on the edge! Find encouragement in your spring-board to edgy living, rejoicing in the Savior's work in your life. He steps in so you can step out!

Happily Ever After 
Isn't this merely the predictable ending to a feel-good fairy tale? And your life is no fairy tale. Far from make-believe, your true story is, however, filled with adventures, joy, and sorrow, and there is purpose in every paragraph. Though your real life story may not read exactly like a fairy tale, you are royalty, a precious daughter of His Majesty, your Heavenly Father. Your "ever after" that God has prepared for you in Christ, the Prince of Peace, is better and more beautiful than you can even imagine ~ the ultimate happy ending (which isn't really an ending at all)! "What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him." ~ 1 Corinthians 2:9 

Chapter One: Your life story, from "once upon a time" to "happily ever after" contain a wealth of characters, a plotline filled with adventure and drama, and ultimately, your Hero!
Chapter Two: From the poisoned apple to the glass slipper, our favorite fairy tales can provide us with powerful allegory, pointing us to God's Word and to our life in Christ. 
Chapter Three: A princess-in-disguise receives a royal crown in the greatest love story ever told!
