Hi, friend! Come on in!

If you’re here for the first time, I’m so glad you found your way here! I always wonder what brings each person to this site! How did you find it? Maybe you thought it was just another link, and you clicked it. But maybe… maybe you found your way here for a reason, and maybe any second you’ll read an article and say, “This! This is why I am here!” This space online is a place of grace. It is safe. There is encouragement. There is hope. And there are millions (YES. You read that right!) of women who feel just like you… even if our stories are all unique. I am so glad that you would join us! One of the best places to go from here is the Most Shared category featured below.  But if you’re curious like me, I always go to the About section to find out who I’m talking to and why they think they might have something I need to hear.  If you are encouraged while you’re here, we would love to have you join us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter! We are under the name Scissortail SILK.
