It's kind of dizzying.

Be like me. No. Don't be like me.
Get a patent so nobody can copy you.
Wear this so you can look just like me.
Be this. Do that.
Something is "in" and then it's "out."

People aren't doing new or shocking things.

It's all been around and stuff is talked about in Bible times.
The less offended or surprised people are the better. 

Jesus wasn't offended or shocked to find someone doing whatever.
If He was, He couldn't have had a successful ministry.

We can't be offended about the ways people behave. There's no room for that. How can we serve if we're trying to carry the weight of how we think other people should behave at or by a certain time in life?

We don't have to agree with stuff.

We are called to love. And loving isn't always saying something is okay. Calling people out IN LOVE is okay. But ONLY in love and not condemning, ever.

You may be able to fool a lot of people in your life (maybe even yourself sometimes) but you can't fake this. People know when you're being genuine and loving even if they don't tell you.

That whole log and speck in the eye thing is still a thing.

And if I'm focused on how full my cup is, then I don't have time to worry who is not doing things God says they should do.

He's FULLY capable to finish what He starts in people.

I can just share what He's done for me and that's enough.

Men wore make-up before women did from what I understand. It's not new. It's not spectacular. Men also wore heels first and also wigs from what I've learned. Also men wore pink before it became a "girly" color. (Men wearing pink is very handsome in my opinion! No colors belong to one group.) From what I've read women cut hair and cross-dressed to go fight in battles and to be accepted before men cross-dressed. And men wore robes and skirts a very, very long time ago.

None of it is new. None of it is actually shocking.

There is nothing new under the sun.

Ecclesiastes 1:8-9 All things are wearisome, more than one can describe; the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear content with hearing. What has been is what will be, and what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.

Dear Beautiful Men, you are valuable and you have some wounds that need healing.
Some more than others but

Women are made differently from men. ON PURPOSE.

God says so. He could have done things in a different way. In fact, He could have chosen any way He wanted to. But HE chose to make women different from men.

Nobody is worth more.
Nobody is worth less.

Women are made special and people are people and ALL are worthwhile.

NO MATTER WHAT anyone else says or does, Jesus has the final say
and if there was only one woman or one man to die for He still would have.

So this comparison thing is wasting precious time.

Dear Incredible Women, you are valuable. So are men. Women, you have some wounds that need healing. Some more than others but

I'm so tired of all the "it's THIS way or THAT way" mess.

What a terrible trick of the enemy to keep people fighting the way we do!

Can't you see? It's wasting time.

YOU were made on purpose and for a purpose. Praying and staying in prayer is the best way to understand what He knitted into you. Please stop looking to the right or the left.

You have a walk to walk and your God is a sea-splitting, miracle-working, doing-the-impossible God. Walk it out.

YOU are so important. If you weren't completely this important then why would the enemy try so hard to keep you distracted and keep trying to knock you down?

Between the ages of 9 and 49 Kerri Valor learned a lot about abuse; 
sexual, emotional, verbal, religious, and physical abuse. 

God sees everything and nothing is wasted.

While it would be easy to stay in a victim mindset,
Kerri has been able to see how God allowed her to learn along the way.

She developed a deep insight into the issues surrounding abuse
and feels called to help others survive too. 

Kerri and her daughters are currently waiting in faith in Northwest Washington for God to open doors to Alaska. Once there, they'll be working towards the development of a homeless shelter for domestic abuse and sex-trafficked survivors. 

They welcome your prayers, as well as financial partnership, to bring to fruition the shelter God has pressed upon their hearts to create:
