Courage is to tell the story of who you are with your whole heart. - Brene Brown
Let's be this.
Sometimes I ask @sunflowerman for advice on a painting. He usually gives me very thoughtful advice, I nod, and then 5 minutes later I decide to do the opposite. 😂🙈 He said this painting is finished, so I think that means I need to add something extra! 😉 Hopefully he'll keep talking it out with me, even if I ignore him. It really does help to bounce ideas off someone else!
Barnevakttid er #lesetid. #hviledagi dag, så da blir det #HalfTheSky. En bok om kvinner som endrer verden, blant annet gjennom å redusere mødredødelighet. Skrevet av #pulitzer-vinnerne @nickkristof og @wudunn
The stories of the victims are so heart wrenching: An 8-year-old girl. Several moms awaiting to pick up their kids. An aunt shielding her 11-year-old niece. A 15-year-old girl. And it goes on. All told, 22 deaths, 12 of which were children/teens. Nearly 120 injured. Only two words to describe this act of cruelty: Pure Evil.
I have shed many tears the last couple of days and cannot quite put into words the range of emotions that I'm feeling for all those impacted. But what I know is that even in this callous act, Jesus wins.
And I dont know what the actual statistics are on this but it seems as if it was primarily an attack against women and children, which the enemy has been furiously doing since the days of Eve. I can't think of a more prime time to be a woman than today. We will prevail. It is our time to rise up against the very evil intent on causing us to shrink back or give into fear and anxiety.
So for those victims, let's pray but more importantly, may our prayers wage war in the heavenlies to see justice done, to see women released from every form of oppression, to see evil stopped in its tracks. #unitedwestand #manchesterunited
POST UPDATE: @arianagrande is reported to have reached out to the victims' families with an offering to pay for their funeral costs. What a beautiful soul! 😢
A light read for my holiday 😊😂 Been looking forward to reading this @oursharedshelf pick, though it is brutal from the very first page - trigger warning for horrific violence. More importantly, it's empowering to read about the women who are challenging their enslavement - it's time to end this inexcusable global oppression ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿
In all my efforts to learn to read, my mother shared fully my ambition and sympathized with me and aided me in every way she could. If I have done anything in life worth attention, I feel sure that I inherited the disposition from my mother. -Booker T.

“For here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come.” - Hebrews 13:14 (ESV)
Cities are so beautiful because they are filled with the compounded dreams and visions of every soul. These key places are constantly building and tearing and remodeling for greater efficiency and to make room for more. It's where business start, flourish and continue to grow or end. It's where culture is formed and shaped and branched out to influence other cities, regions and nations. YET, these cities in all their splendor are nothing in comparison to God's city to come! We can't even fathom or imagine what He has in store for us one day.
Until then, let's keep seeding, nurturing and harvesting the present.

Hello to all the new faces around here! (And the old ones, y'all are awesome 😘) I spent way too long trying to post a cute little intro post yesterday, but my iPad crashed so many times I had to admit defeat. (Ok, I really just wanted to go read instead.) Anyway, the gist of it is that I'm Ruth and I like to make stuff - mostly using tissue paper and acrylic right now! This pieces is a WIP and part of my "women hold up half the sky" series...I think there are more of these to come! For now it's a partly cloudy sky though ☺️🌤 So to all of you, new and old, thanks for reading this far! What do you use to make stuff right now? Fabric? A guitar? A camera?
“The [queen's] heart is like channels of water in the hand of the LORD; He turns it whichever way He wishes.” - Proverbs 21:1 (AMP)
We are all heirs of Christ's royalty so we can trust Him to channel our hearts to lead well in our homes, vocations, and ministries. So let's keep our eyes focused on the Author and Perfecter of our faith and enjoy our Monday!
De perfecte setting om te genieten van een lunch en een erg goed boek #hoornseplas #halfthesky #oursharedshelf
One of our very first students, Shewly, graduated from high school in #dubaiyesterday.
What a remarkable journey it has been for this young lady and we are so excited to see what lies ahead for her. She is a wonderful example of how an #educationcan change a life and how important our work in #bangladeshis.
Congratulations, Shewly! May you always strive higher and higher and never ever give up. We are so proud of you.

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go. Dr. Seuss

Meeting this beautiful lady was by far one of the coolest connections I've made in two years as a Compassionate Entrepreneur. Apeksha was my check-out girl during a Target run with my littlest. She commented on my cuff bracelet, and when I started sharing the heart and mission behind the jewelry, and my work with #tradesofhopeshe just lit up!! Turns out she recently moved to the U.S. from Nepal and knows firsthand how powerful education and job opportunity is for a woman's future. This week we met for coffee and marveled at this connection that started in a checkout line, AND she gave me this beautiful pink beaded necklace from Nepal that I will treasure forever 😭! So excited to watch this beautiful like-hearted woman join me in this mission and change the world for women just like us who were made for MORE ❤🌍🔥👊
