With words, designs, and photographs, I hope to encourage the warriors to be bold in our simple faith, unafraid in our beliefs, unashamed of our patriotism, brave enough to be creative and curious, and filled with so much hope and faith we cannot dim the light that shines from within us.
Why should I? It’s true, I’m not qualified or worthy of such a task. I’m far too fearful to be much of a help to anyone else. But with God, I know I can overcome my fears and insecurities and help Him win the battles of this world in the fight of good vs. evil. I can no longer look away while evil seeps over our land, our culture, and over so many dear people. Like Jonathan said to his shield bearer before boldly going into an enemy camp the entire army would not enter, “It may be that the Lord will work for us.” I’m going to – on my best days – and attempt to – on most days – trust as deeply as Jonathan. It may be that the Lord will work for us.
I was raised as a missionary kid in a third world country. Because I have seen and felt deep darkness (in the 3rd world especially), beauty and goodness shine like a lighthouse to me. I’ve considered that maybe God allows my darkness so I keenly see light – and can then point it out to others.
I’ve created this site to collect the things I love and adore: words, illustrations, inspiration from nature. If it hits me smack in my forehead or shoots right into my heart, I hope to collect it and keep it. It’s here for me, but it’s also here for anyone who happens upon it.
This world needs warriors who will be lights in the darkness. Will you join me?
