You read a lot in graduate school and a lot of it is fascinating.  However, I think I may have just read my favourite article ever in my hometown newspaper.  Here it is today’s Times Colonist Article about You&Her

I have been blessed to know and come to call a dear, dear friend a young woman named Christina Norman, who has a heart for the greater world.  I have danced at her wedding, snuggled her new born babies and been fortunate enough to enjoy a few cups of good coffee with her as she has unfurled her visions and dreams.  Today is the day she has been aspiring to for a very, very long time now -she, alongside her wonderful husband and beautiful children, will be launching her new line you&her.  I don’t think I can begin to encapsulate with simple words the depth and overwhelming magnitude of excitement I am feeling as I watch the fruit of her passion unfold today.  She is just one, breathtakingly remarkable mother of 3 who is trying to do her very large, very awesome part in supporting the women in Africa who are in need.  So if you happen to be in Victoria this evening go to their launch at the Parkside Hotel.  Tickets are $50 and you will be supporting something much, much larger than yourself.  If you are like me and are a little further away than you would like to be on a night as grad and tonight then read about her story in our local newspaper, and send all the love you can muster their way.  Equally as importantly, if you are able to partner with them financially, please do so, you will be supporting this young family who is stepping out in faith to better our global community.

Christina I am so proud of you.  Keep it up.
