Hannah shares with us thoughts on how she is growing in wisdom, how dark seasons are not the end and the importance of making good choices.
Inspiring biblical passage of the moment: “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.” (Psalm 23:5)
This passage is inspiring me at the moment because of the promise of God’s provision. Sometimes it requires walking through a dark valley, yet God’s abundance is always waiting for us.
Spiritual growth focus at the moment: At the moment my focus is growing in wisdom. This year, I really wanted to learn how to run with endurance in a way that didn’t burn me out but was wise in where God was calling me to.

What has helped you grow spiritually in this season? Reading a Proverb a day. I had heard lots of people recommend doing it, however I had never done this before, and ever since I started this season, it truly has changed me spiritually. I have grown so much in wisdom.
Just read/currently reading (and what has it taught you?): Blessings in the Darkness by Joel Osteen. I’m only in chapter 2 but wow it is an amazing book! At the moment, it is teaching me that the dark seasons are never the end.
