In all the stories Tori told me about of her Mexico trip experiences one in particular stayed on my mind. One of the missions students name is Jessica. On a trip of exploring the city the group stopped at the Pyramids in Mexico City. Everyone started climbing to the top to see the view. Jessica has Cerebral Palsy and made it up the steps successfully only to realize the steps were to narrow to safely walk back down. After brainstorming safe alternatives the group decided the best thing to do would be to have her scoot down the steps. In order for her to not have to do this alone and be embarrassed the whole group decided to scoot back down with her. They were there to serve the people of Mexico. I loved to hear about the heart they had to serve and love on each other as well. Here is the pic of them scooting down the pyramid together.

I wrote a story prompted by my writing group. It's about church, community and racism. Since I published it on my blog I have had so many people reach out with the same shared experience. It's been comforting. Then I found out there is a whole movement of people sharing their stories of leaving church spaces that refuse to respond to racism and injustice. Thank you @thewitnessbcc.

Too close? Just making sure ya'll see these curls. Had my favorite curly girl expert @torrensalicia cut the back of my hair (looser curl pattern) even with the tightly coiled girls at the top. Love the shape that was created. Ima release the desire of length for a fuller style. #curlygirlmethod #natural #innersence
Do not fear. Do not look at the seen but that unseen. Keep your eyes on things above. What is happening in the earth realm is not the end of the story. #kingdomminded #hopeishere #ihearthesoundofvictory #drybonesrattling #elevation
