I'm learning many things on my journey to the beautiful side. One wonderful lesson is that beauty isn't meant to be hidden away in a secret vault, untouched and unused. Rather, it is meant to be shared. For instance, the entire book of 1 John is written for the express purpose of sharing the greatest beauty the world has ever known (1 John 1:3-4): Jesus Christ, "the Word of life.... [the] One Who is life itself...the One Who is eternal life" (1 John 1:1-2).

The resources that follow are shared in the same spirit; they've impacted my life spiritually, taught me new techniques, made me smile, and essentially made my life that much more...dare I say it...beautiful?
