To Write Love on Her Arms...

So last night a car full of us went to TWLOHA at UB and it was amazing! Right now we're working on getting them to our campus. I have a feeling that this is going to be the start of something incredible here since this all just fell in to place so quickly to begin with.

Ever since this summer I have been even more passionate about this movement then ever because i have dealt with 2 sucicides in this past year that should have easily been interventions for, IF the people around them knew the signs and what to do. I do not blame myself for their deaths but I am mad that they were people so close to me that I was unable to do anything for because I was away at school. So, after the second one I decided that I had to do something, the most that I could to create the awareness and to help those who need the attention and help since I can't do it directly.

So, hopefully this really kicks off and there can be a chapter created as a result of it too. This is my beggest goal for this year...

The Shack

I just got done reading one of the most amazing books that I have ever encountered!!!
The Shack by William P. Young is an amazing story about a severely broken relationship that God so desperately and persistently tries to mend.
This man lost his little 6 yr old girl to a serial killer and didn't find the body, only where she was killed.
Years later, he receives a letter in the mail to meet back where she was killed, signed by God.
There is so much that happens on that little trip. God is revealed to him outside of the boxes that religions so often put Him in and it is amazing! This is a great read for anyone who is having any struggles with God, especially in trusting Him, or with them selves, or just wanting to see God in a different light that most of us have been raised to see Him.
I could take something new from this book every time i read it. So many personal encounters and talks that are so profound. It showed so many things about myself that I didn't realize, good and bad. You can't rush your way through this book, it definitely makes you think.
