Open Minded. Different. One goal.

I've been thinking about how people express themselves...

Some through words, poems, lyrics. Some through music. Some through paint. Some through dance. Some through photos. Some through sculptures. Some through exercising. Some through hard work.Some through tragedy. Some through sports. Some through teaching. Some through love. Some through smiling.

One of my favorite aspects to man kind is the ability to express ourselves through different ways. God was so smart when he created us! :]. We are all so different and have completely different talents and mindsets- and i LOVE it!  No matter what talent, gift, thing you love- the Lord can use it!
[[{I think of}]]

My cousin, Ben, he is raising support to go to Thailand. He takes pictures and in his pictures from around the world- he inspires me. I can hardly wait to hear about Thailand and how God is going use Ben way over there!

My brother, Chan. He is so passionate to teach. He uses his gift of teaching to glorify the Lord. Through leading a youth group, mentoring young men, and taking the time to teach me
My sister, Blythe. Going up to serve again at a summer camp, 8th year now? The Lord is using her ability to be liked by so many people. Seriously, I have never met someone so likable by people all over the world. She is an example everywhere so goes, the Lord is using her ability to be liked for his glory!
My cousin, Katie. She is one of the most compassionate people I know. Sometimes I think about what goals she has, the people she has already helped, and the people she will help.It's incredible what the Lord can do with a compassionate heart. She is changed the way I see people.

 My boyfriend, Tyler. He has such talent and passion for acting. He is such an example in my life through his passion and discipline within his craft. I am inspired to give all I have to what I love. I'm so excited to see what God has in store for him.

My teacher and role model, Jody. Her story contains much  tragedy. But through the hard times, she brought the Lord glory. Her life and mindset continue to push me to live life to the fullest.

My friend, and cheerleader, Linda. Through her writing and creative mind she draws me closer to the Lord. Her eternal mindset is one that I covet. Her words have touched people across the country.

A co-worker I have, Jamaal. He does body building competitions. Through the discipline he has in dieting, exercising, he is sharing his love for the Lord.

My dear friend, Eliza. Severing the Lord- even when it is difficult. She is faithful in her encouragement to me personally, and to others. Her lyrics, piano playing, and songs have caused me to strain after the Lord even closer. I'm anxious to see what the Lord has in store for her.

 All people- all different. But, all using their unique talents for the Lord. i love that God made us all so different, but yet all working together for the same Goal. The body of Christ is unique and amazing. i am SO thankful I can partake in it! And I am blessed with such friends that want to be used as well!
