You have shown me the power of working through our past, sifting through the good and the bad in our lives and choosing not to discount the things that have formed us and made us beautiful. I am unspeakably proud of you. You are destined for a path of joy and purpose if you keep taking care of your mind, sticking to your gut, and bringing your heart to Jesus. Your story holds the power to impact hope to others."
