Christine Yuen | “It is always the simple things that change our lives. And these things never happen when you are looking for them to happen. Life will reveal answers at the pace life wishes to do so. You feel like running, but life is on a stroll. This is how God does things.” -Donald Miller
Daniela Sokolowski | “Wherever you go, you take yourself with you.” -Neil Gaiman
Jessica Holleque | “We had gone far enough together to listen easily in the quiet spaces.” -Brian Andreas
Lara Austin Shoop | “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. 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 automatically liberates others.”
Lindsay Hubbell | “Today I learned that art doesn’t always have to be perfect. I’m not perfect. Step out of your comfort zone. You might fail at first, but eventually you will fly. Your words might not make sense at first. Your lyrics might not flow. Your painting might be messy. Your photo might be out of focus. But that’s okay, because you tried. Embrace it. Share it. You. Are. Beautiful. And so is your art.”
Tracy Jack | Moments of solitude amongst the chaos of family life are grabbed and cherished – even if it’s only a few minutes in the hallway.
Jackie Cuervo | “Sometimes I can hear my bones straining under the weight of all the lives I’m not living.” -Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
Jessica Risinger | “Oh the sky would be blue, and you guys will be there too. When I finally do what frozen things do in Summer.” -Olaf

Tatiana Johnson | “Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.” -Jonathan Swift
