Life: unmasked buttonWelcome to life: unmasked, a blog link-up encouraging us to take off our masks and show how we are finding God (or how God is finding us) in our mess.

Will you join us?

Just write a post (or make it a photo or video post — be creative!). Grab the life: unmasked graphic (easy — just copy the code for it in my left sidebar) for your post. Next, share the link to your specific post (not just the general link to your blog) in the linky tool below, or write your story in the comments.

But wait. This part is very important, visit at least one other post (maybe the one directly in front of you in the linky-list?), and leave them an encouraging comment. Let’s build an unmasked community, a safe place to be real with one another.


P.S. I am so pleased to be a part of this new book, “Not Alone: Stories of Living with Depression” by contributing one of the essays. If you or someone you know struggles with depression, this would be an excellent resource.
