Flawed Yet Fearless: Guest Post At RowdyKittens

Readers, SURPRISE! You have TWO posts coming to you today. (Consider this as the regularly-scheduled post for this coming Monday, April 11.) Today’s SECOND post is over at Rowdy Kittens, and you can find it here: Flawed Yet Fearless:  4 Steps To Embrace Your Strengths. Posting on RowdyKittens is a dream come true for me, as Tammy Strobel's site was the first blog I subscribed to (and a major inspiration as I began A Wish Come Clear.)
