Welcome to the first week of Mended’s Advent series. Advent is simply the season of preparation and expectation leading up to Christmas day and the coming of Jesus. Each weekday we will be sharing a video reflection from one of the brilliant women in our community. This first week we are focusing on the word “hope”.
If this is your first time joining the Mended community please know how incredibly welcome you are. You honor us with your presence, time and voice. We will be digging further in to the video reflections in our Facebook group which we would love for you to be a part of. Join us here!
This Advent series is what connected me to Carolina. Already I am so glad and honored for her to join our community. Her measured wisdom and peaceful spirit was a gift to me today, and I expect it will be the same for you.
