Fearless Footwear

Though I’ve only known Melinda for less than a handful of months, I love how she tells a story.  I think you will too.  I first met her through Story Sessions, and I am grateful to have her sharing her beautiful words on pressing in beautiful, fearless footwear.


You know what I enjoy most about having a love affair with shoes?

I can be outside of my goal weight, sporting a dull, blemished complexion with grey, wiry roots popping right out of my hairline- but the confidence that comes from wearing the right pair of shoes just cannot be ignored.

My shoes ground me. They speak of my presence and my purpose. They are what express my posture and my confidence. Now, before you go thinking about how silly that confidence is, let me tell you how I arrived here.

John wrote in Revelation 12,

10 Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! (NKJV 2184)

Testimony.  History.  Story. Your story – this is powerful.
