I love great quotes!
I save them on Pinterest and keep links to them close for easy access when I need a word of encouragement from someone who’s been there before me.
You see, I don’t like learning the hard way!
I’m one of those people who believes the advice of others. Now, that’s both a good thing and a not so good thing. I had to live through a lot of naive years to learn who I could trust for wisdom and truth.
Which is why I will always go to Scripture first. Then, I go to other people who go to Scripture first.
I’ve compiled a list of Scripture verses and wise quotes that give me encouragement, hope, and advice when the days are hard and I’m not rockin’ anything.
Maybe they’ll help you, too!
