Top of the morning to ya'll! As we start another week, I can't help but be super duper grateful on this Monday! Thank you Emily for reminding all of us the beauty of each day.

As you are reading this, I am probably waking up with my youth kids to either do breakfast, or devotionals, or working with kids, or (trying) to hammer a nail.

Today, I am grateful for these mission trips. Our students' hearts are on fire for the Lord and it's so refreshing. As they meet new friends, experience grace in all forms, and learn to help others, they are growing into God-fearing individuals. It does a youth leader's heart good I tell ya!

I'm grateful that we can continue to be with them once we return from this mission trip, to inspire and keep the burning fire of faith aglow. I never want them to lose that fire!

I'm grateful for the opportunities that me, Hunter, and any others willing to join us, have to be able to help our community. We can show people love, hope, and respect... and those deeds will spread like wildfire.

Before you know it, an entire community can be changing the next community over. Then those communities can be inspiring the state. Then the state to the nation. Then the nation, to the world. It'll be one big ole ball of love!

Never give up hope on changing someone else's life. You never know the rippling impacts it may have.

Have a beautiful Monday, friends!
