To Write Love On Her Arms {GIVEAWAY!!!}

today i wear "LOVE" written on my arm. for my sisters, brothers, friends, myself.

We often ask God to show up. We pray prayers of rescue. Perhaps God would ask us to be that rescue, to be His body, to move for things that matter. He is not invisible when we come alive. I might be simple but more and more, I believe God works in love, speaks in love, is revealed in our love...We are only asked to love, to offer hope to the many hopeless. We don't get to choose all the endings, but we are asked to play the rescuers. We won't solve all mysteries and our hearts will certainly break in such a vulnerable life, but it is the best way. We were made to be lovers bold in broken places, pouring ourselves out again and again until we're called home.
{from renee's story}

To Write Love on Her Arms is a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery.

TWLOHA is very dear to me. my sisters and myself have all struggled with depression, self injury, addiction and suicide in one degree or another. we've all come out the other side, although the fight is never over.
