Tolerance is deemed a virtue today and demanded of us. What if we don't want to be tolerant, but loving and gracious instead?

Why I’m not tolerant… {Guest Post}

One look at my blog and you’ll understand why the blog-site of my new friend, Amaris, recently caught my eye. I appreciate websites with lots of white space, some gray and black thrown in, and pops of color via the images.

There’s a lot more to Amaris’ blog Crumbs & Glamour than the lovely colors and design. Her bio says, “My goal is to inspire women to live their lives with authenticity and freedom!” I love that so much. Amaris is a wife, stay-at-home-mom, and believer. She blogs about her real life, including struggles with depression and anxiety.

Her recent post Why I’m Not Tolerant is both timeless and pertinent to today. It will inspire you to maintain your resolve, protect your household, and uphold the truth of God’s Word.
