10 Qualities of a Godly Friend

shutterstock_229205491 copy                                                                                                                           Friendships are one of the many beautiful gifts God has given us. Friends can bring us closer to God and have the capacity to change us, positively or negatively. Sometimes it is difficult to find good friends who will stay by your side. Personally, I have experienced friendship on the widest spectrum. I have had friends who have loved me unconditionally like Christ and I have had friends who have thrown away our friendship. Difficulties in friendships can be heartbreaking. I encourage you to be the kind of friend you would want to have. It is important as Christians to honor God through these relationships. Here are ten points to consider in your friendships. I encourage you to examine these points in your life to ensure that you are being a godly friend and that your friends have these essential qualities.

A good friend…

1.Is Encouraging

1 Thessalonians 5:11 commands, “Therefore encourage one another and build one another up.” That is the kind of friend Christ calls you to be! You should rejoice when your friend receives an award or recognition. You should encourage her to grow in her relationship with Christ. Being encouraging does not mean sugar coating everything, but remaining positive, even when the situation may seem bleak.

2. Is a Truth Speaker

A godly friend speaks truth into your life, even when it is difficult to hear. A true friend loves you and genuinely wants the best for you. They will tell you both the good and the bad. She will tell you when she feels that you are walking away from the Lord or if she feels that you have been walking closer with God. She will speak God’s Truth into your life daily.

3. Says Things in Love

This one goes hand-in-hand with the point above. If you feel that God is calling you to speak a tough truth into a friend’s life, you must say it in love. Gentleness is a fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22) and should be exercised throughout a Christian’s life. Speaking a hard truth in gentleness and kindness can strengthen a friendship rather than hurt it.

4. Prays for You

A true and godly friend prays with you and for you. We all go through difficult phases in life and a true friend recognizes the need for a prayerful community and asks how she can pray on your behalf. My close friends and I meet once a week to share our walk with the Lord and even share how we have struggled in our spiritual walk. Having that kind of support and accountability is essential. Sharing your prayers and struggles with your friends is liberating.

5. Is Thoughtful

A good friend thinks of others before herself (Philippians 2:3). She thinks about how she can serve others and encourage others in their walk with the Lord. She remembers birthdays and special days in her friends lives. She is intentional with her friendships and know their purpose is to honor God.

6. Is Secure in Her Identity

A good friend recognizes her immeasurable worth in Christ. She is secure in her identity as a daughter of the Most High. She also knows that is your identity as well. That’s why she doesn’t get jealous when you succeed, instead she is the one in the crowd cheering the loudest for you.

7. Is Loyal

A godly friend sticks by your side even when times are tough. She stands up for you when she needs to and always speaks positively of you. She knows that “out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks” (Luke 6:45) and she only uses her words to build you and others up.

8. Forgives

We have all fallen short of God’s grace and are going to make mistakes. It is crucial to be able to forgive a friend when she has wronged you. Colossians 3:13 commands, “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” I am so thankful to have had godly friends who have forgiven me when I have wronged them. God calls us to forgive. Don’t confuse this with justifying an abusive friendship. Although you must forgive them, you do not have to remain in a harmful relationship.

9. Is a Peacemaker

A good friend cultivates peace in her relationships. She doesn’t revel in drama or discord. She seeks peace and harmony. Matthew 5:9 states, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.” She doesn’t look to create unnecessary drama and is happiest when people feel included and loved.

10. Brings Out Your Best

Proverbs 27:17 says, “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” Friendships are supposed to strengthen your walk with the Lord. A good friend helps you be the best version of yourself. It is also your responsibility as a godly friend to come along side your friends and encourage them.

Being a good friend can be difficult. The secret of being a good friend is to abide in Christ. Remember the purpose of friendship: to honor God. Be the kind of friend God wants you to be. Seek God with all your heart and He will give you the power to be a good friend. Love others the way that Christ loves you and you will become the best friend a girl could ask for.

Radically,

Rachel

Why Pretty Isn’t Everything

why pretty isnt everythingWhat I’m about to say may sound crazy. It goes against everything society tells us, as women, have to be. The media tells us we have to be beautiful, thin, or flawless. Magazines airbrush already gorgeous supermodels into oblivion to create this facade of how “women” ought to look. Kate Moss’ infamous quote, “nothing tastes as good as skinny feels,” is plastered on the backs of 12 year old’s iPhone cases. This is wrong. Here is my argument:

Appearances are not everything.

Lately I’ve been thinking about this significantly. It’s probably because I heard a second grader say that she was fat. That’s heartbreaking. And that exhumes a massive flaw in our culture that needs to be set right by scripture and God’s Truth.

The other day I read 2 Corinthians 4:7, “But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.”

That verse got me to thinking. God describes our bodies as “jars of clay” and the gifting of the gospel to us as “treasure.” The gift of the gospel and God’s word has far more worth and weight than our outward appearance. Cultivating godly characteristics through the Word of God like a servant’s heart, humility, generosity, compassion, and thoughtfulness hold more weight than a perfect exterior. Focusing on imitating Christ through our love for Him and for others is when we find contentment. No amount of physical perfection can ever eclipse that intimacy with our creator.

Don’t get me wrong, I like makeup. Apart from having a level 65 mage on World of Warcraft and spending most of my childhood Saturdays at Pokemon trading conferences (yeah, it was a thing), I am probably the girliest girl you will ever meet. I don’t think there’s anything inherently wrong with wanting to be beautiful or wear make-up. I think that’s natural. But there is a balance to be struck. I’ve made this rule for myself: the amount of time I spend getting ready in the morning is the amount of time I spend that day with the Lord. If I spend 30 minutes putting on makeup or doing my hair, I spend that time or more with the Lord. It is crucial to keep perspective. Keep your eyes focused upward and outward: focused on God and focused on others. Philippians 2:3 commands, “in humility value others above yourselves.” Talk about a reality check. It’s our jobs as Christians to be focused on others, not worrying about our appearance all the time.

Furthermore, God commands us to be focused on things that are eternal rather than temporary. 2 Corinthians 4:18 commands, “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” Set your eyes on the things of God. Looks will inevitably fade. But a beautiful soul and a servant’s heart is something that God values immensely. Character is more valuable than a beautiful face, “A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies” (Proverbs 31:10). Verse 30 sums it up perfectly, “Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.”
Not focusing on your outer appearance is empowering. Focusing on serving others and living your life sacrificially as Christ empowers your soul. It strengthens you because Christ is working through you. His strength becomes yours.
Live your life by walking intimately with the Lord. Make time for Him in your busy schedule. Instead of worrying about what the scale says or how you look, take that time to examine your heart. See how you are walking with the Lord. Critically ask yourself how you have been striving to lead others to your creator. I encourage you to focus your attention on the things of God rather than things that are temporary and fleeting. Remember, God’s focus is on our hearts, where lasting beauty resides.

3 Steps to Fight Apathy

3 steps to fight apathySometimes it’s hard to care. Sometimes you open your Bible and don’t feel the Holy Spirit spurring you to action. Sometimes you just feel apathetic. I know I’ve had days when I don’t feel passionate. Whenever I feel apathy creeping up on my walk with the Lord, I follow these steps.

1.Pray

This is the most important thing. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 commands, “Pray continually.” When I am feeling stagnant in my walk, I pray that God would light a fire inside me. I pray that He would ignite an unquenchable thirst in me to know Him more intimately. Whenever you are feeling distant, pray that He would bring you closer to Him. Jeremiah 29:13 promises, “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Seek Him, confess your apathy, and ask Him to awaken your soul.

2. Read Encouraging Verses and See His Majesty

Sometimes when I am feeling lost, it’s often because I’ve forgotten just how majestic our God is. I’ve failed to remember how magnificent He is. Psalm 19:1-2 says,
“The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.”
Get outside and experience God’s glory through His creation. I’ve found that the morning at 8 am is when I feel closest to the Lord. I see His beauty in the crisp morning air when the morning dew still lingers on every surface. Find your time. Sometimes it just takes peaceful time to experience His presence.

3. Praise His Name

When you are feeling distant, put on some of your favorite praise music. I have an album titled, “For Him” that has some powerful music from The Austin Stone and Hillsong. Listening to that playlist can change my attitude completely. It makes me go from being self-centered and grumpy to being joyful and content. Music has the capacity to make your heart do a 180.

Apathy in the Christian’s walk is not how God wants us to live our lives. He wants us to be passionate about Him and to love Him with our whole selves. If you find yourself sliding into apathy, I encourage you to fight it. Revelation 3:16 says, “So, because you are lukewarm–neither hot nor cold–I am about to spit you out of my mouth.” Be careful about being a lukewarm Christian. Seeking God daily will help you battle this. Seek Him even if you are not feeling inclined to do so. God will always come through.

In Christ,

Rachel

10 Signs He Might Not Be the One for You

10 signs he might not be the one for you

We all know that guy. The guy who makes you compromise or be the person you never thought you would be. But for some inexplicable reason, you can’t shake him. The thought of living without him makes your throat constrict. You love him and you don’t understand why. Here are some signs that you may need to cut it off for good. It might be the hardest thing you will ever do in your life. But if these signs are present in your current relationship, it’s time to do some serious soul-searching.

10. He isolates you from your friends

This can be really subtle, but if he takes you away from your godly friends it could be a sign that he needs to go. This can range from him talking bad about your friends consistently, to getting overly jealous when you spend time with them, or to him suggesting you find new friends all together. You have to consider your friends too. If you have a solid group of Christian friends who love you and have your best interests at heart; and he wants to separate you from them, it’s a huge red flag.

9. He Doesn’t bring out your best

Relationships are supposed to bring out the best characteristics in you. Proverbs 27:17 states, “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” That is how a dating relationship is supposed to be. You are both supposed to bring out the best characteristics in each other. If you find yourself losing your identity or deviating away from the Lord, be careful.

8. He belittles you

Little criticisms can add up. Be careful if a guy is constantly criticizing your appearance or making fun of the quirky way you do things. Oftentimes these jabs at your ego will be paired with a nice comment to conceal the true insult. If you begin feeling self-conscious or depressed about certain things about yourself you never felt before, be wary.

7. He hates your family

If a guy does not take an interest in your family, it’s time to let him go. We all have family baggage. It apart of being sinful humans. A relationship is supposed to empower you and help you through the difficult times. If he isn’t willing to put up with your family, even if they are difficult, he isn’t worth your time.

6. Your family hates him

This is a big one. If your family has negative feeling about a guy you are seeing, it’s probably for a good reason. Your family has your best interests at heart. If they absolutely hate your boyfriend, it is a red flag. They selflessly love you and have no ulterior motives, so if they’re getting a negative vibe from your boyfriend, it is probably for a good reason.

5. He makes you compromise

If you are doing things inside a relationship that you never thought you would do, it is time to reevaluate. If he is making you compromise your purity or your faith, he is not looking to honor God through your relationship. A dating relationship is supposed to reflect marriage, which is meant to reflect Christ and the church. Many people have asked me, “how far is too far?” My answer is always the same: if you’re asking that, then you’ve gone too far. Fight for Christ in your relationship. You should be seeking Him together, not worrying about how far you can toe-the-line before you make God mad. Ephesians 5:3 says, “But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people.” I wish someone would’ve told me that when I was 17. So if he is trying to pressure you to dishonor God, he needs to hit the road.

4. He doesn’t pursue you spiritually

This is a tough one. I know I want the man I marry to be intentional about his walk with God and to encourage me to walk closer with the Lord. The man you seriously consider for marriage needs to be asking you intentionally how your walk with the Lord is, what you are reading in your Bible study, or how he can pray for you. This is a rare gem to find, so if you have one of these men of God, hold on to him.

3. He isn’t serving others

God calls us as Christians to be lights to the world. It is our job as ambassadors for Christ to lead others to Him. If your man isn’t striving for a life to honor God through service, you need to consider where his heart is.

2. You grow farther away from God when you are with him

Often times, many women look for completion in men rather than in Christ. I cannot stress this more, if you expect a guy to fill Christ’s place, the relationship will end horribly. Men are sinful. They cannot ever fill the place that was intended for Christ. When you put that kind of pressure and expectation on a man, it is not good for either one of you.

1. He doesn’t love God

This is the most important one. If you find yourself in a relationship where he does not love God, leave now. If he doesn’t love God, he is incapable of loving you the way Christ loved the church. Do not be gullible and think that once you are engaged or married this will change. If you are in a dating relationship and you are not pursuing Christ together, this won’t magically change once he gets you a diamond. When you date, date with your eyes open. Be aware of his spiritual walk and see if he is a man after God’s own heart. Even if he professes to love God, see if his actions correlate with his words. See how he spends his free time and money. Does he use it to glorify God and pursue intimacy with the Lord?

Whenever you date, it’s crucial to have perspective. Keep the Lord as your number one. Don’t let any man take His place. No man is capable. Seek the Lord’s face and ask Him for wisdom whenever you are getting into a new relationship. Remember that you are a daughter of the Most High and don’t lose sight of your identity. Don’t settle for anyone who treats you less than that. Remember that you were fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 149:13) and that God loved you so much He gave his son to die for you.
This is not an easy thing to do. It’s not easy to end a relationship with someone you are in love with. But sometimes it has to be done, regardless of your feelings. You may need to put your emotions aside and make the Godly decision to end a bad relationship. Like I said earlier, it may be the hardest thing you will ever do and it may take you months or years to heal, but lean on God through the process. He promises to never leave you or forsake you.

Battling Worry: God Will See You Through the Storm


blog #3-worry
A few weeks ago I quit my job. I left my nice apartment in Uptown, Dallas to start this company. It’s my calling in life; God has put it on my heart to start this company for years. But I was always afraid to do it. It’s scary, quitting your stable job to pursue a ministry. For the first week back in Austin the prospect of starting this non-profit really set in.

And it terrified me.

I started freaking about the fact that I wasn’t making any money. And I got scared of the possibility that no one would listen to me.

I began worrying.

Doubt got planted in my mind: had I made the wrong decision? Then I prayed: I opened God’s word and He began to speak to me. I realized how arrogant I had been to think that I could do anything on my own. Everything good comes from God. How faithless I had been by thinking God couldn’t handle something as small as my company. I began laughing at myself because I realized just how stupid I had been. God spoke and the world was formed. Yeah, pretty sure The Creator of the Universe could handle my problem.

Keep Perspective

Worry is something in our lives that robs us of joy. Worry is what happens when we are focused on ourselves rather than on God. 2 Corinthians 4:17 says,
“For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.”

Our earthly problems are trivial compared to eternity. We have to keep the proper perspective. When we focus our minds on the things of God, rather than the things of this world, we find peace. We have to remember where our true citizenship lies, “But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ” (Philippians 3:20). Our citizenship is in heaven, not here on earth. That helps keep our problems in perspective. This focuses our gaze upward and outward, not inward.

Rejoice & Cast Your Cares on Him

God does not promise us a life free of pain and heartache though. But the mark of a mature believer is one who rejoices through that affliction and even retains the joy of God through it. Philippians 4:4 commands,“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!”

That’s often times a hard one to swallow when the world seems to be caving in on you or you feel powerless. Thankfully, as Christians, our strength doesn’t come from us, but from God. And He can handle anything. My favorite verse that illustrates this concept is Isaiah 40:31:

“But those whose hope is in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not grow faint.”

In the next chapter in Isaiah, God promises to take your right hand and help you (Isaiah 41:13). He will be there for you. Take your worries to God and He will walk you through them. I remember when I first moved to Dallas I had this awesome job lined up. I would be making 50k right out of college: I was set. But the job was contingent on me passing a really difficult coding test. Well, I failed it and lost the job. So there I was in Dallas with a $1000 rent, no job, and no family there. God was the only thing that got me through that tough situation. And as strange as it was, I had peace about it. I wasn’t worried in the slightest. I trusted God completely that He would provide for me. Right when I lost the job, God brought this promise to the forefront of my mind,

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7).

I trusted Him wholeheartedly.

That is what God calls us to do. When you have a problem, take it to Him. We can’t handle it, but He can. He uses hardships in our lives to teach us and to make us grow as people. Consider what is weighing on your mind. Are you having trouble with friendships, schoolwork, the prospect of graduation, work problems, or relationship issues? I encourage you to surrender these issues to the Lord. In retrospect, I would have hated that job and would have been stuck in a contract for two years doing it. God had another plan for my life.

Keep perspective when you face a problem. Remember that God is in control and your citizenship is not in this world. Focus your gaze upon the Lord, trust in Him and He will give you the strength to battle any fear you are facing.

Fight the Good Fight,

Rach

When I am Weak, then I am Strong

Blog Post #1-When I am Weak, I am Strong

I want to be transparent whenever I talk to you. Meaning, I am not going to sit at my computer and pretend I am perfect. I am not, and anyone who went to Baylor with me can definitely testify to that. I messed up. Throughout my last two years of college, I was running from God. I mean a full on sprint away from Him.

And I was miserable.

One memory has been vividly seared into my mind. I remember taking a walk with my boyfriend at the time and it hit me.

I hated myself.

I stopped dead in my tracks. I turned to him and said I hated myself and couldn’t understand why anyone else could possibly love me. I hated me, so why wouldn’t everyone else? That moment was my rock bottom. I was done running. So I got in my car and headed to Austin to see my family.

I remember sitting in church that Sunday at The Austin Stone and Matt Carter was talking about salvation. At that point, I was living my life like I didn’t even know the Lord. I was broken. I remember him talking about how once you are truly saved it can’t be taken from you. God will not rest until you are brought back to Him. Tears welled up in my eyes as the impact hit me: my Father was bringing me back. If you are living your life outside of God’s will and you are saved, He won’t stop until you are brought back. It’s like in Matthew 18:12 when Jesus says,

“What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off?”

I was the stupid little sheep who wandered off. The most beautiful thing is that God loves you enough to make you come back. He cares about each one of you so strongly; He will do anything to bring you back to Him.

One of the most comforting things for me is how God repeatedly uses people who are so far from perfect for his purposes. My favorite example is David. In Acts 13:22, God describes David as “a man after my own heart.” Wow, does this poor guy have a lot to live up to. And he fails miserably. He commits adultery with Bathsheba and then murders her husband to cover it up. Those are pretty much the two worst things by human standards that a person can do. But the thing that is beautiful is that he has a repentant heart. Having a repentant heart means to literally turn away from your sin, it’s not just to say you are sorry. Psalm 51:1 is David’s repentant prayer, “Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions.”

Another person God uses who is a total screw up is Paul. Before he was saved, Paul was a terrorist to Christians. Acts 8:3 says,

“[Paul] began to destroy the church. Going from house to house, he dragged off men and women and put them in prison.”

I don’t think it is a coincidence that God uses men and women to further his kingdom who have made huge mistakes. 2 Corinthians 12:9-11 says,

“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

God’s strength is made perfect in our weaknesses. When we can admit in humility our dire need for Christ is when His strength and His beauty are made perfect.

Another good thing to remember is Romans 8:28,

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

Even the dark times in college when I was living my life outside of God’s will, can be used for good. It’s important to remember this promise, God will always make good out of bad for those who love Him.

So after reading this, I challenge you to examine your walk with the Lord. Are you striving to live a life worthy of the calling you have received? Or are you wallowing in sin and sadness? If you are dealing with sin, turn to the Lord. He will welcome you back with open arms. Always seek His face. If you are not working towards intimacy with Him, you are inevitably growing farther away from Him. In Jeremiah 29:13, God promises, “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”

Striving Upward,

How to Live your Life Radically Radiant

Blog post #1 redo-2nd option     Have you ever thought about what defines you? For a long time, I was defined by my intellect (surprising, right?). I prided myself on my ability to rattle off rote facts or even my ability to persuade and change people’s thinking to fit my mold. I was proud that I could recite Longfellow off the top of my head or amaze my peers with my verbatim, Socratic definition of Rhetoric. Yeah, I know…I was a loser. Another time I was (and still struggle with this) defined by my looks. That’s an easy one in this culture. But even at my thinnest, at my prettiest, something was missing. That’s when I realized just how stupid it was for me to find my worth in something as fleeting as appearance or something as prideful as intellect. After all, there will always be someone prettier and someone smarter. That’s when I realized my self-worth could not be found in something measurable by man.

My worth is in Christ.

Your worth is in Christ.

God decided you were worth it when He sent His only son to die for you.

Now isn’t that better than worrying about having perfect makeup 24/7, being the smartest one in your intellectual circle, or being the best athlete?

This identity can never be taken from you. No matter what.

Now that is power.

What is living Radically Radiant?

Step 1:

It is understanding your immeasurable worth in Christ. It is understanding and believing wholeheartedly Romans 8:37-38

“We are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither life nor death, neither angels nor demons, neither the present or the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord”

NOTHING CAN SEPARATE US. Did you hear that? Nothing can separate us. I don’t know about you, but I am thankful beyond belief for that. Nothing I have done, nothing you have done can ever separate us from Christ once we have accepted Him as our Lord and Savior. Thank God, because I’ve made some pretty tough mistakes.

Step 2:

Living your life fearlessly, boldly, and radically for Christ.

Christ calls us to live our lives for Him. Romans 12:1-2 says, “Therefore, I urge you in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God-this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”

Whoa. That is some strange language. Offer our bodies as sacrifices? When I first read that verse I pictured a volcano with men in loincloths all wailing around a fire in a circle while the virgin sacrifice was made.

Obviously, I was wrong. When Paul tells us to offer our bodies as living sacrifices, he means to no longer live your life to please yourself, but to please God. My favorite verse that highlights how we need to live our lives is Romans 4:1, “As a prisoner of the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.”

Bam. Straight to the point.

As daughters of Christ, we have been charged to live a life to honor God. We will never measure up to the sacrifice of Christ’s death on our own, but it is our charge to live our lives focused on Christ, that means a life serving God. Our “good works” are not a way to get into heaven, but a byproduct of our love for the Lord.

One thing that I struggle with is evangelism. You won’t find me going up to a stranger on the beach and telling them that Jesus loves them. That has never been my strong suit. God has gifted me relationally. I build relationships and hope my love for Christ is evident. That was how I helped lead my brother, Luke, to Christ. We all have different gifts. My sister in law, Annie is strong where I am weak. She has a bold spirit and regularly witnesses to people. I encourage you to use your gifts to further Christ’s kingdom. If you have been gifted with the ability to relate with kids, teach Sunday school. If you can rally people to action as an encourager, find ways to encourage others through your walk with Christ.

To live your life radically radiant, means being empowered through your identity as a daughter of the King and then using your gifts to live your life worthy of the calling you have received passionately and fearlessly.

Let me know how you are using your gifts to further the kingdom, I’d love to hear from you!

In Him,

Rach
