Opportunity To Bless

I gave my Hope necklace away today! It was a struggle because it was a wedding gift from my wonderful friends and I wore it almost everyday! But I felt like God told me to give it away today.  I randomly talked to a girl at a coffee shop with sweet tattoos. Her name was Reanin. She told me she just moved here from Brooklyn and was really struggling.  I shared the gospel with her and asked for God to bless her with hope and peace. I said I struggle with anxiety and depression and hope in Jesus is all I...

One Foot In Front Of The Other

My original word wasn't remain with a semi-colon as the i. My original key read "brave".

One friend struggled with this word. She said she could never be brave. As I hugged her...

Because ultimately my heart always belonged to him and he obtained the key. You would never know by looking or talking to him, but Michael lived, fought and battled with Cystic...

If You Believe

I received a Giving Key necklace with the word "believe" on it for my graduation from a friend of mine. It's pretty cool because, at the time, I needed to believe, believe in myself and the direction I was going. About a week later I met a homeless man on the beach after I had watched the sun come up. We talked, mainly about him and his story. He told me he was religious and it's all he had to hold onto because his girlfriend was doing time for heroin possession and he had nowhere to stay, he didn't have...
