It’s the first Friday of 2020 everyone! Let me present you with a charcuterie and cheese board of posts to start off your Friday.
Have you ever imagined what the world would look like if everyone looking at their phone had a monster coming out of their screen? Well, I’ve got some things to show you.
Andrew Rae and Ruskin Kyle imagined a world like the one I described above and then they created Phone Buddies which Lurk and Ooze Out of Screens in Embellished Photos.
This is some news that has me really heartbroken and I don’t think it can be over-shared. Australia is still burning. Here is What Australia’s devastating fires look like on the ground.
We are huge fans of Jeremy’s Church And Mental Health blog, and we’re excited about his 2020 Yearly Goals.
Seeing clearly in 2020 by Seth Godin is a perfect read right now, obviously.
2020 doesn’t know what it has coming… we are all ready for it!
I love these comics. They always make me smile.
Let’s all be brave this year!

This is my intention for 2020. The word I want to focus on. . 2019 was all about health, which is continual work that will move with me, and it was important to focus on. I learned a lot, and continue to learn why I behave the way I do and how I can dismantle the subconscious programming that keeps me from fully embodying the image of God I was created to be. That’s a big part of our health journey, slowing down, becoming conscious, listening to the wisdom within (the Holy Spirit), and digging into why we do, or don’t do, the things we do. . It’s not easy for me to take up space. I’ve been working hard to heal and address where self deprecating thoughts, doubt and overcompensating comes from. These subconscious hard wired programmings that tell me I am not good enough, even before I can catch it. I think all of us deal with them to an extent, but people in any intersection of marginalization do more so. . Do you want to know how to heal wrong beliefs? You have to prove them wrong. Rationalizing them will take you but so far, you have to prove to yourself that they aren’t true. Which means you have to do the scary things you believe you aren’t good enough for, and you have to be ready to have set backs and know those aren’t failures. . Inside of colonized Christianity women, LGBTQ+ people, disabled people, POC, and anybody that doesn’t align with their narrow view of perfection is asked to sit down and be quiet. It’s obviously not overt, but the messaging is drilled into us through centuries of seeing these marginalized identities ignored, thrown to the side. We learn it as we see marginalized people perform for a little space, and they receive it because they are “behaving right”. So we learn: we don’t deserve to take up space just as we are, we have to do what we are told and support the chosen ones. . God within me means divinity is woven into our DNA, we can’t be separated from it, we can only suppress it. There is enough room, resources, needs, people, work, for all of us to take up all the space. We don’t have to compete for it, we collaborate and take over the world in this quest for heaven on earth. . Happy New Year friends. May we all EXPAND!
I may be borrowing her word of the year. Maybe you’ll want to as well!

“Why are you the way that you are?”
Eavesdropping on my kids conversation:
mom and dad are our boss. But who’s their boss?
who’s Jesus’ boss?
He doesn’t have a boss.
yes, God is his boss
no. Jesus and God are like 99 percent the same.
but God’s still his boss.
Yes! (Screaming, hitting)

If you support how this administration is treating immigrants in the US, but you also want to do a mission-trip to Latin America in 2020… please cancel it.
You can’t love us as a missionary-vacation but hate us as a neighbor.

Carlos dropping some truth!
Don't let the New Year overwhelm you. Take it one day at a time. Start every day this year like the first day of your New Year's resolution. Little wins = big progress over the long haul. Life is a marathon, not a sprint.

This made me sigh with relief. No pressure, guys, no pressure.
We salute everyone who takes a break from social media without announcing it.
