This really spoke deeply to me. All of his videos are BEAUTIFUL. Check them out.

“When I see people of different sizes, I strive every day to not look at them and make any type of assumption…I’ve learned firsthand that…trying to change yourself to be someone that you are not genetically meant to be can kill you. In June of 2006, [my mother] went in for a tummy tuck and liposuction procedure. She was pronounced dead about 14 hours later. And I would hate to be the person who drove someone to make such a drastic life decision.” – Jasmine Dunn//The Body Image Project

Don’t lose heart.

I’m sitting upstairs in Barnes and Noble. It’s cozy and warm and invites all book lovers to indulge. You can’t go wrong with that, especially when it’s cold outside.

One of the absolute best things about going to school in Louisiana is that the whole state gets time off for America’s most beloved holiday: Mardi Gras! This year I went up to Shreveport for Jessica’s engagement party and then I went with one of my best friends, Sophie, to her house. She lives in the country. She has cows. It’s awesome.

God has been growing me up like nobody’s business. I seriously feel like a different person. More than anything, He’s constantly humbling me. He gently reminds me that He wears the pants because He created the pants. When He seems the farthest away is when He’s working the most in me. He has greater concern for His glory than for your comfort. He’s not a narcissist though because when you catch a glimpse of this King of Glory, your heart explodes with wonder and awe. So if you are seeking Him and it feels like He refuses to bend his ear to your cries, don’t lose heart. Weep but don’t worry. Lay aside every weight and burden of sin and run the race with endurance, fixing your eyes on Jesus. Trust that He keeps His promises, He is moving and He is molding your heart into something beautiful that reflects His GLORY (2 Cor. 3:18, Heb 12:1-2)

Off to Izzo’s to get a burrito the size of a small chicken…
