"Remind me gently, Oh Lord, what it means to have a heart that breaks like Yours; but if it cannot be gentle, I beg that You walk with me in the pain of Your answer, so that I may know not only Your goodness, but also Your face."
I love seeing a faith that’s so raw and real and beautiful that it enlarges my faith too. No magic tricks or fireworks: just the slow-burning smolder of a steady glow. I want to be that person for someone else too.
"I’m an architect, and I’ve designed buildings all over the world. Every time I get a commission in an emerging market, I get excited about the opportunity to draw from the country’s heritage, culture, and art. But the client never wants it.

“Even as they try to help the bees, people may inadvertently poison them by planting pesticide-laden plants purchased from big-box garden centers, suggests a new report.

“If somebody else says that running like a girl or kicking like a girl or shooting like a girl is something you shouldn’t be doing, that’s their problem because if you’re still scoring and you’re still getting to the ball on time and you’re still being first, you’re doing it right. It doesn’t matter what they say. Yes, I kick like a girl and I swim like a girl and I walk like a girl and I wake up in the morning like a girl because I am a girl, and that’s not something I should be ashamed of. So I’m gonna do it anyway.”
