Sometimes you have to change your perspective. I’ve been dreading something for a couple of days and it’s something that is silly to dread in the first place but I was getting ready this morning & shifted my focus from it being a chore to it being an opportunity and there was so much light in that. My attitude changed, my shoulders straightened and my spirit of determination and drive ignited. I encourage you to look at your life, see if anything can have a perspective change. It’s hard, but it’s so crucial sometimes. Prayers appreciated today!!

When your weekend consists of wonderful people, beautiful waterfalls + a lot of laughter, Sunday night consists of, “Thank you Jesus, please dont let tomorrow come too quickly.”Loving this moment. Saturdays are for adventure, Sundays are for cuddles.
I remember January 14, 2014 so vividly. I remember the overwhelming and all encompassing joy that I felt that morning & throughout the day. It was the first day we filmed Unveiled & it changed my life. I remember being offered about 5 coffees and endless support and assistance. I can’t explain the feeling or passion it ignited in me. It was extreme confirmation that I was meant to start Unveiled. But last night I was just thinking after seeing Zach Braff’s “Wish I Was Here” and I was talking about some of my past and I felt it heavier than ever - I need unveiled just as much as anyone. I remember every lie I would tell myself and the situations they stemmed from. Rebuking lies and walking in Truth isn’t something you do once and it’s over. It’s a daily battle that you/we have to fight and overcome. With Jesus, I overcome everyday because He holds my worth and beauty and everything that is precious about me. I cried like a baby watching WIWH. I cried after and I tear up still thinking about it. It’s an incredible piece of art. And maybe I cry a little because of how thankful I am to have had such a magical evening. Despite the tears, I can’t stress enough how much my heart is in unveiled. I was meeting with a sweet girl and she said, “it’s so great what you’re doing” and I so appreciate her saying that, but I don’t really feel like I’m doing anything. I mean I know I’m filming & editing videos and physically doing something but I guess I don’t know the weight of this “good deed” I’m doing because it’s just as vital to my life. It’s so much a consequence of my story, that I forget that it isn’t just me that learns and grows from it. I have NO idea if anyone else understands what I’m saying or what I mean. I have no idea if anyone will even read this. And that’s okay because I just like to spill my brain sometimes. I can’t wait to see what’s ahead for unveiled, I just want to make sure everyone knows that I’m feeling and dealing with the same things you may be. No one is perfect. I cry because I’m happy and at the same time I cry from guilt or shame. This is why I need unveiled. For truth when the lies just start to creep in. For comfort when I’m weak. For support when I’m lonely. Everyone who has spoken to me about unveiled/submitted a story/etc is touching my heart so deeply. I pray my passion for the care of your fragile heart is apparent. I love you.
