I want to introduce you to my guest blogger and friend Vanessa Vannoy. I first met Vanessa in 2012 when I moved to Paris. I quickly found a Bible study where about 20 or so women from around the world met weekly to learn more about the Bible and how to do life. Vanessa was our faithful Bible teacher and leader. Her smile is infectious, and her love for the French people is apparent. I know you will enjoy what Vanessa has to say.
