  My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. -Psalm 62:7 I have known two things about myself since elementary school. I wanted to be either a teacher or a writer. At this point in my life, I’m neither of those things in a technical sense, or in […] Read more of this blog post »

Kisses from Katie by Katie J. Davis
“It may take place in a foreign land or it may take place in your backyard, but I believe that we were each created to change the world for someone. To serve someone. To love someone the way Christ first loved us, to spread His light. This is the dream, and it is possible.”
Katie J. Davis

It was easy to judge the main character, Mattie as selfish and indulgent, but I've had my moments and am probably more like her than I want to admit. The biggest thing I took away with is a cemented belief that sharing and living the truth is always ...more

“Real life is messy and hard and never turns out like I’ve imagined. Usually it’s better. So, I try not to dream but rather to pray. If there is one thing I know, it’s that I have no clue what I want. I’m fickle. I’m picky. And I’m scared of a lot of things. Especially commitment.”
Katie Kiesler, 22 and Single: A Coming of Age Story...in Progress

“Sometimes, most times, when I think back to the people that I loved, the person that I was... I feel like I'm reading the pages of a book written about
someone else's life.

I can't believe that was me. I can't believe that was you. I can't believe there was an us.

It's not that I regret it. It just doesn't feel like it happened to me and yet, I can't forget it.

I feel like it's still refracting and reflecting back on me, haunting me.

Jesus intercepted my mind, my thoughts, my mistakes, my shame. He's changed me from the inside out. But I'm afraid you still see the stain.

Lord, let them see my heart, look at You and Your still-in-progress work of art. Help us all to look beyond our burned bridges, charred reputations, scattered shards of memories, and gaze at the One who took on the weight of all the hate to find the freedom in redemption that we all crave.”
Katie Kiesler, 22 and Single: A Coming of Age Story...in Progress

“Disappointments are often my greatest motivation.”
Katie Kiesler, Because I Love You

“I never liked jazz music because jazz music doesn't resolve. But I was outside the Bagdad Theater in Portland one night when I saw a man playing the saxophone. I stood there for fifteen minutes, and he never opened his eyes.

After that I liked jazz music.

Sometimes you have to watch somebody love something before you can love it yourself. It is as if they are showing you the way.

I used to not like God because God didn't resolve. But that was before any of this happened.”
Donald Miller, Blue Like Jazz: Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality

“I'm still discovering, right up to this moment, that it is only by living completely in this world that one learns to have faith. I mean living unreservedly in life's duties, problems, successes and failures, experiences and perplexities. In so doing, we throw ourselves completely into the arms of God.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

“The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

“Books are to me as homemade tattoos are to an inmate. Can't get enough of them.”
Laurie Notaro, I Love Everybody

“The cafe was called Tattoos. The fella who owned it didn't have any tattoos... but we never saw his wife.”
Karl Pilkington
