I purchased one of the Giving Keys at the Storyline Conference in San Diego for my daughter Ashton, who is a junior at the University of Georgia. Her key word was “create.” I gave it to her the night before the 2nd Annual NEDA (National Eating Disorders Association) Walk she helped organize. The reason I gave her the “create key” is because she has a calling to help create a better world.
“Every time you refuse to leave the world in the condition it is in, you are re-creating. Every time you extend yourself to make someone else’s life better, you are part of the creative process…Creativity is the natural result of spirituality. When you are alive, you will create – and it will be breathtaking and life giving…You are inspired by the prospect of a more beautiful world and are fueled by a passion that cannot be contained. You create because you must. You cannot sit back and simply watch life happen. The hero within you has been awakened and you are the activist. For your life is a creative act!” - Erwin McManus, Wide Awake.
I am excited to see how the world is going to be made better by Ashton creatively using her God-given gifts and talents. Isaiah 61:1-3
