Finding some peace is about living a life you don’t need to run from, but living a life you want to run into.
The moment that any one sees someone as less human than themselves, is the moment more evil scars all of humanity.
Your home will become who you are, and your family will shine forth this atmosphere wherever they go.
All there is to see is Jesus — for you to see Jesus in every person — and every person to see Jesus in you.
It is a fight to believe what God says about me, to love and accept the way God made me, to do what God called me to do, even when it’s not convenient or easy or applauded.
There are giants of the faith that look like victims in the eyes of the world, but are victors in the eyes of heaven

What you think you can’t handle — might actually be God handing you a gift.
Don’t ask me how it works, or how the Holy Spirit does it, but when we do the Word – actually do it — something splits the seams of heaven and pours out a shower of blessings.
It’s worth risking wonder, because we can brave a culture of cynicism and outrage, but we can’t live in a culture devoid of wonder.

My shame kept me quiet, safe, alone but it also kept me from knowing other broken ones.
Be grace warriors in the world — not great worriers about the world.
Pain’s always a fuel — that drives you to escape, or drives you to grow.
Your job is not to find love. Your job — is to find all walls you’ve built to keep love out.
Let’s talk — I’d love for us to get to know each other…
