“Becoming Like a Child” by Katie Taylor

**I am sharing a blog post by one of my dear friends, Katie Taylor, thefirstdayofspring.net. She and I Co-founded a “city-site” after #Catalyst2014, ourcityonahill.net in an effort to bring our take-aways home with us.  The goal was to connect the bright spots of Christ in our community and bring out the “God Colors” in our areas of influence.

#catalyst2014: Change Makers-Writing my takeaways on my heart & in the BLOG!
