Packing Light…


I just finished reading Allison Vesterfelt’s Packing Light (as part of a promotion between Moody Publishers and Relevant Magazine).  

My favorite quote was when Vesterfelt suggested, “You don’t have to go. You can stay home. It’s up to you. But if you let fear stop you from doing what you really want to do, you’ll regret that forever.” 

I appreciated the way that portrayed the journey.  The joys.  The surprises.  The adventures.  The community.  The cost.  The pain.  The conflict.  The confusion.  

We need to know what we are getting ourselves into.  But still be willing to get into it.  We need to know what to accomplish.  And expect to accomplish it.  But be prepared sometimes not to accomplish it.    


What a truly gifted and authentic storyteller.  I would highly recommend the read.
