She’s the girl who wrote the Instagram post (below) that went viral: 

You can eat all the kale,

Buy all the things,

Lift all the weights,

Take all the trips,

Trash all that doesn’t spark joy,

Wash your face and hustle like mad,

But if you don’t rest your soul in Jesus, 

You’ll never find peace and purpose.

  • How God gives us what we need for the day, so we keep coming back to him daily
