Essentially EB Blog – Elizabeth Mitts // 12.10.17
Elizabeth is one of True Gold's regulars (PTL because she's a rockstar writer) and she has an incredible blog about her thoughts and life. She has this ability to write in a way that makes you feel as if you're physically sitting across the table from her soaking in her wisdom along with her comic relief in between seriousness. Her blog is definitely one worth following and her perspective is one that all can benefit from. Follow it at essentiallyeb.com.

Grace, Faith & Glitter Blog Post by Lauren Lozano // 09.15.17
Lauren's post God's Still, Small Voice really hit the spot today. It's funny how you can read things that may have been written a while ago and it still manages to be relevant with what's happening right here in the now. I hope you'll check out these wise words and leave with a good dose of encouragement today.
Relevant article BY SARAH SCIARINI // 08.30.17
C.S. Lewis' 'The Problem of Pain' Is More Relevant Than Ever was a really good read today. I loved what Sarah had to say about standing up to hopelessness and not letting it overcome us during the troubling times that we live in. This segment within the article really spoke to me: "God speaks through the smallest of voices—even through ones that may not have the largest platforms or the broadest circle of influence. We all have the ability to stand up for the right thing and love people who are hurting. It would be foolish for any one of us to believe we can solve the world’s problems. It would be a waste of hope to let those problems paralyze us and prevent us from doing anything good."
Go check the rest of the article out for yourselves and be blessed, friends.

Looking For a Savior – United Pursuit // 08.21.17
Lately I've become really obsessed with this worship song. The words seem to fit my tender heart so perfectly these days. If you have a chance, hit play and listen to the lyrics for a few minutes. You may get hooked like I did and decide to put it on repeat. If you haven't heard or listened much to Will Reagan & the United Pursuit Band, let me just tell you that there's a lot more where this came from. Their genuine worship can take you straight into the throne room.

Defining Your Joy // 08.15.17
A lot of us have dreams of being an entrepreneur (or just having more joy in our lives) but have no idea how to get there and take the proper steps in that direction. What we love about Natalie Joy and her company, Defining Your Joy, is that she gives women the tools they need to accomplish their God-sized dreams and helps build their confidence in a way that they know it's possible to achieve it. If you're one of these people that needs help in this area of your life, Natalie is your girl to connect with. You can check her business out at definingyourjoy.com.
Love Everywhere // 08.11.17
Want to join in on some tiny acts of kindness? When we first heard about Love Everywhere, we instantly fell in love with what Ashley and her ambassadors were doing all over the world.
Each note is hand-stamped and numbered for tracking. And each note contains a handwritten message, resurrecting an art form largely lost in today’s digital age. And the really amazing part? These notes have the potential to not only travel the world as note finders “pay it forward”, but to let people know they are seen, heard, and loved.
Check out shareloveeverywhere.com to see how you can join in on all the love they spread!
