  Christina EmbreeMinister of Generational Discipleship Great Lakes Conference of the Brethren in Christ     What keeps you up at night? My family loves to make fun of me for my restless nights. Any noise at night will wake me up and getting back to sleep is a chore. When I think about what keeps me up at night, the first thing that comes to mind is “Everything!” But, as I reflect, I realize what really keeps me up is the noise.
