Fear less. Do more. Allow your heart to guide your dreams. Live with hope and always remember your roots. Achieve your bliss. James 1: 22-24 I love that God blessed me with a constant curiosity to learn, discover, and explore. I love taking pictures. I’m able to capture memories, from which that moment’s beauty and laughter can be relived over and over again. I love to travel and experience. Young Life has played such a large part in forming my heart. I’ve been able to renew my spirit daily through the grace that God extends into my life. My family and I reflect each other in our flaws, beauty, and originality. One of my favorite ways to be present is to sit back and enjoy life’s simple moments with a coffee in hand.

Receive grace, live in grace, show grace and repeat.

The biggest tragedy of your life is that your human mind has no way of comprehending the love God has for you. Take all of your aching desires, all your tender longings, and multiply them by a million, and you’re still not close to the love God has for you. And since we can’t comprehend God’s love, we imagine that God is in a distant place, protecting Himself from all our sinful ways.

The tragedy of thinking that God only loves as we love!

My advice is to just be yourself and follow your instincts. Use your knowledge and history to understand how to use your own story to create something new.

Sometimes we need to stop and say “Thank you for loving me.”

It is such a simple thing to say yet it carries so much weight, whether it is with a spouse while you both read your books or it’s with a friend who has been with you through thick and thin or it is to a family member who has loved you from the start.

Those words, that thought, the action of saying it to them with purpose and truth can mean the world to them. Because after all, they mean enough for you to say “Thank you for loving me.”

You are more than empty beds and lonely nights, you are not just a heartbeat under bed sheets. You are complex and wonderful, beautiful and brilliant; please stop allowing the silence to dictate who you are. You are Christ’s, the same voice that awoke the world, calls you beloved, never ever forget that.

Don’t try to picture everything bad that could possibly happen. Stick with the situation at hand and ask, “Why is this so unbearable? Why can’t I endure it?” You’ll be embarrassed to answer. Then remind yourself that past and future have no power over you. Only the present.
