Linger.

“When you visualize and internalize Christ personally anointing you and putting his seal of adoption upon your life, freedom and risk-taking become a lifestyle as opposed to an abstract ideal. Fear and condemnation are swallowed up by hope and acceptance. Your countenance becomes wildly refreshing. You exude peace, passion, goofiness, and fun. When the process is complete, you are fearless. Your fearless confidence creates humility about your successes and lightheartedness about your failures. It focuses you on your core strengths and passions and allows you to let go of labels, expectations, and the concern of failing. You live fearlessly, for you know that when you fail you fall into the arms of the one whom no kingdom, plan, authority, or power can stop or diminish. Accept Christ’s deposit. His spirit in you creates the shared, compassionate lifestyle called discipleship. His Kingdom is at hand and his deposit establishes it in you and through you.”

Love,

Lauren

"Surely man at his best is a mere breath." -King David I am a mere breath God has graciously gifted to be His daughter first, a daughter and sister, a friend, an athlete, a writer, a coach. I hope to be a full-time professional soccer player, write a book or two, be a lifelong learner, work for a sports and faith ministry, coach college soccer, have a family and maybe even pick up the guitar. My dad died when I was a sophomore in college. Writing became especially important to me after his death, helping me grieve and heal. I find writing letters to him has helped me process deep emotions and pain I didn't really know what to do with. My hope is the letters will share experiences that speak to and shine a light into the lives and stories of others in some way.
