... you've been following little Bana on Twitter, right?
Bana's 7.
She's been tweeting about trying to outrun bombs that keep falling like wide open jaws from the sky.
You saw what happened to her last night?
I can't stop thinking about it -- and I'd bet about anything that you, reading this right now, are precisely the kind of person who needs her to know this right now too:

There’s always enough hope because dreams always last longer than the dark.

..if you find you're in a low place right now, don’t assume it’s a waste of time, or a waste of your life or a waste of an opportunity. We really can rejoice -- even if our problems don’t change.
Honestly? Absolutely every single one of us needs this one:

God can take what we think is worthless and turn it into something worthwhile.

Right there with you & you aren't alone

An act of kindness, giving it forward, can be more powerful than a sword in starting needed revolutions.

I know this sounds foolish but whenever I read posts by other people and your name is in the post it's in bold black. When I post your name it's not in bold. Does that mean we're not friends and the other people are? I wish I was able to meet you talk to you. I'm sure the whole world wants the same thing. Just a prayer of mine. God bless you Ann Voskamp!!

... I had to wait a long time to tell this story,
to find any words at all.
Finally it all came now... & kind of undone in a way that makes everything whole:
"The Secret Truth that Cures Feelings of Abandonment -- & what has to be said about Advent" -> bit.ly/SecretCureToFeelingAbandoned
They say they found Him wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger, but I have absolutely no idea how they found my daughter. I wasn’t there. I have no

Want to make the holidays be holy days?
This burst my heart wide open:

When the church opens its arms to change the world’s story — this is what changes the story of the church in the world.

... so that time Christianity Today came up to the farm to do their own little expose 😉

We need to break the ladders and go lower...that means destroying platforms and living hidden lives that have dirt underneath our fingernails, as opposed to everyone striving to get behind

Hi there. I am three chapters into your book, One Thousand Gifts, and it's opening my eyes. Thank you! We're adopting a little one from China, also. For some reason, I just wanted to write and say thank you. God bless!

... so now is when this brokenhearted love story is begging to be told. Yes, there was adopting this year --
but we haven't told the other wild, unexpected story we've been quietly living into --- but now that story, for times like these:
"In a world where we look around and feel like we’ve all already lost— lost a sense of hope, lost a sense of decency, lost a sense of humanity — stretching our hands in grace & kindness can make everyone win."
"How We could Get to be the Kind of People the World Needs Now"

When the battle is hardest, God’s people love the greatest, because love is the only force that meets no resistance.

...okay, honestly, sometimes it can be real hard to tell, you and me both ---
but what if you knew how to definitely know the real reason & purpose of your life --- why you’ve been called to where you are.
Maybe the beginning is right here?

Maybe the struggle for good isn’t waged as much around us as it’s waged inside of us.

...every now and again and again...I end up right back here. Undone.
Please pause for this one today:

It’s a rugged, rigorous way to live out the Christian life, but it is so fulfilling, so satisfying.
