You are desired, you are chosen, you are loved by God.
All of us, at some time or another, struggle with an inner voice that is critical, negative and even harsh.
Even if you’ve encountered the darkest of situations, there is hope.
I want to write you this letter as a Youth Minister who admires, respects, loves you and deeply cares about your soul.
We all have those days. You know, the ones when we hit snooze far too many times, when we are frantically trying to find something we misplaced, or showing up to school to find there’s a test we had forgotten about. They are not fun days. On top of all […]

And, I have come to learn that it’s through our brokenness that we are able to know others better. If we don’t allow our vulnerabilities to show, then other people may think that we don’t need them or care about them.
