Student ministry is mostly fantastic but often frustrating. Fantastic because I get to spend time with, invest in and do life with 7 to 12 grade girls. Frustrating because life is messy, lives are messy and I am a mess! A friend sent this quote to us a while back and it has become my “life quote”. I want to demonstrate this quote in my life. I want to shine a light. I want to give others permission to be sold out and not turn back.
“We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us…and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence liberates others.”
– Nelson Mandela
