Love God, Love people; that is my life motto.
What would the world look like if we all lived from an overflow of love?
Will you let it start with you?

Stretch

The more you resist it, the harder it is.
The more you tense up,
The more difficult it is to get into the position you need to be.
The more you try to force it,
The less you are able to accomplish.

Running

Running used to be a method by which I cleared my mind. The pain gave me something concrete to focus on. When the pain was not enough to drown out the thoughts anymore, when I could not outrun myself, I stopped.

Our stories are unique in their similarities, different in their commonalities, and heartbreaking in the reality of this modern world.

This is the call to action, a BATTLE CRY that rings out, that will mark this generation. Will you heed the call?

‘While I Wait…’

“The Waiting Place for people just waiting. Waiting for a train to go or a bus to come, or a plane to go or the mail to come, or the rain to go, or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow or waiting around for a Yes or a No or waiting for their hair to grow. Everyone is just waiting”

My First Winter

I thought that this was a curse I would have to learn to live with for the rest of my life. So, I began to deal. I learned how to live life with the emptiness, the brokenness, the pain. I learned how to smile even when everything inside of me was weeping. There was no light at the end of this never-ending tunnel.
