Here they are, in no particular order:

  1. God Is Faithful.
  2. I Am Not A Mistake.
  3. I Am Not Entitled To Anything.
  4. My Mother Was The Greatest Human Being I Ever Knew.
  5. If God’s Called Me To Do Something, It Will Come To Pass.
  6. Forgiveness Is Essential For Healthy Spirituality.
  7. I Am not Defined By My Imperfections.
  8. There will always be a big kid that lives within me 😜
  9. Never stop dreaming!
  10. There’s freedom in being an independent thinker.
  11. I can have influence with people even if I feel like I don’t.
