quote of the week

"because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God, but our lives as well." -1 thessalonians 2:8

i love this verse. it's one that i model my life after. i love life-on-life discipleship and mentoring. and my favorite way to do it is by coaching. easy way to get in kids' worlds and show them Jesus.

two of my kiddos flew down to florida to visit this past weekend and we had a blast. i haven't laughed that hard in a really long time. it was such a blessing having them here. i just love being in their worlds and getting to share life with them. i hope they see more than a coach in me. i hope they see Jesus and the crazy love He has for them. my love is selfish and broken, but His love is perfect. i hope they know it.

i love my kids. love sharing life with them. and i miss them with all my heart. 


live unashamedly :: laugh uncontrollably :: love unconditionally.
