Learn how to break free from the bondage of the orphan syndrome to finding your home in God as His son or daughter.

March 18 – Whitney Putnam on Imperfectly Brave
What does imperfectly brave look like for you? God knows, and He wants you to dig in-maybe even get a little dirty-and discover your newly defined life. This journey may take time, but by running to the cross you will detangle the Word from the world, find your life ripe with purpose, and experience renewed passion for serving others.
Imperfectly Brave was birthed out of a prayer group. When God started redefining places in Whitney like fear and perfectionism, she started writing it all down. Now, the recently released book, Imperfectly Brave, will help women of all ages and backgrounds redefine bravery and step into their imperfectly brave lives.
Because you have a brave life inside of you.
Whitney Putnam is a dreamer (with two precious little girls) and a visionary (with a pastor husband who is beyond wonderful). They live in Liberty, Missouri and attend a church near a peacock farm. And she is sure that every woman has an imperfectly brave life to live.
