Inspiration can come from anywhere, and sometimes it comes from the most unexpected places.  We all need inspiration to thrive, and we need to be open to seeing it.  We all inspire others at some point, even when we don't realize it.  Inspiration is a funny thing.

I am a Christian.  I am a woman of faith and my husband and I are raising our kids to be followers of Christ.  That is a hard mission.  How do you model Christ to a two year old?  How do you be intentional about it?

Faith and inspiration and perspective are all things that are so co-mingled in my mind.  But that can also take you in a lot of different directions.  So, my hope and my prayer for this section of my sharing is that it is exactly what it needs to be.  That it speaks to someone when that person needs to hear it.  That it be full of hope, full of light, and full of truth.

I'll leave you with this - something I saw on Instragram today, and spoke to me in the most profound way.  I needed to hear this in my life today.

Go and love someone exactly as they are.  And then watch how quickly they transform into the greatest, truest version of themselves.  When one feels seen and appreciated in their own essence, one is instantly empowered.  {this was credited to Wes Angelozzi}
