Broken Trust by Lillian Duncan (GIVEAWAY)

BROKEN TRUST   My latest book, BROKEN TRUST, uses a butterfly to symbolize the spiritual aspect of the story. When we see a beautiful butterfly most of us don’t think about the caterpillar and what it went through to become that butterfly.

Romans 12:2 talks about being transformed by the renewing of our minds to discern God’s good, pleasing and perfect will.

Some do resolutions, I do word of the year. Around September I start praying and watching for confirmation. Sometimes the words come later in the year, and I’ve had them as early as October.
