"we just want people to know that they’re not alone, we just want people to know that their story matters. It’s not just the band that you love, or this girl Renee whose story we started to tell, we really believe in the idea that all of us have a story, and every one of those stories is significant and important. So often people feel alone when they wrestle with these things, and these things tend to stay quiet, and so we just want to invite people to be honest. We think maybe one of the greatest things that happens on this planet is this idea of friendship, just the idea of community, that we meet other people and have the opportunity to connect with other people, and we think that’s something really significant that we hope for everyone. We know that pain is real, we don’t think we have to convince people of that, but we think it’s an honor in the face of that to say that we believe that hope is real, and help is real, and we just want to invite people into that conversation."
'From Note to Self:
"And God must be a pretty big fan of 'today', because you keep waking up to it. You have made known your request for a hundred different yesterdays, but the sun keeps rising on this thing that has never been known. Yesterday is dead and over. Wrapped in grace. Those days are grace. You are still alive, and today is the most interesting day. Today is the best place to live."'
"we weren't meant to do life alone, and that we're not alone if we deal with these things."
life is precious (:
