“one of the ways we grow up is by declaring what we love” – Shauna Niequist, Bread and Wine
If I could sit in a cafe with one writer, it would be Shauna Niequist. I love the way her stories evoke so much emotion in me. The way I feel like, “yes, that’s me too!”. I love the way I can relate to her, and the way I aspire to connect with readers like she does. I’m excited that I will actually get the chance to sit around the table with Shauna at Hope Spoken this weekend.
There are so many prompts in this book that I have taken and ran with, but today as I sit at the Amsterdam airport traveling home from a 10 day DREAM trip to Uganda with Sole Hope, I want to focus on and declare what I love.
I love people.
I love connecting with people, and connecting people to each other.
I love to travel and see new places, meet new people, experience new cultures.
I love to tell a good story through photography + writing. I love the way my camera allows me to connect with people.
I love relationships, and hearing peoples stories + dreams. I love dreaming with people.
I love quiet mornings with Jesus and coffee.
I love freedom and redemption.
I love to be outdoors enjoying Gods beautiful creation, almost like I’m breathing him in.
I love to worship. Alone with my headphones on, in a corporate setting, or with my little family.
I love being a mom. being a wife. being a sister. being a daughter. being a friend. I love being a part of my little family, and a part of the bigger family of God.
what about you? what do YOU love?
