thursday special: newspaper profile

I don’t post on Thursdays…unless something extra-special is going on.

Today, a profile I wrote for the SheSays section of The Forum newspaper is up! I met Vicky Westra a little over a year ago — through blogging — and have been blessed by our crossing. In March, she was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer, but she hasn’t let that stop her from living. And now I have the honor of sharing some of her story (much of it through her words) with you.

I’m so grateful to Vicky for the thoughtful chat that led to this story, as well as for her husband, Rick, for his contribution! You inspire me through how you live your life, Vicky, and I’m privileged to be even a small part of your journey. :)
