Defining & Redefining Who We Are (& an exciting announcement)

// In a nutshell: Finding our Identity is the process of DEFINING & REDEFINING who we are in each season of life.”

Finding our Identity is the process of DEFINING and REDEFINING who we are in each season of life. Click To Tweet

This past year has been just that… a journey into discovering Identity. And I’ve come to the conclusion that finding identity is both simple and incredibly complex.
