Today, if you are believing God for something, maybe a turnaround in a relationship, career or your health, stand firm that God’s Word is true. When you put Him first place in your life, when you follow His commands, He promises to pour out His favor on you. When those thoughts try to tell you, “It’s not going to happen. It’s too good to be true.” Turn it around and say, “Father, I want to thank You for Your favor on my life, on my children, on my career, on my future. I am Your child, and I know it’s not temporary. It’s not seasonal. It doesn’t come and go. Thank you, God, for a lifetime of favor!”

Officially a Marine Corps poolee heading to Parris Island October 14!! This still feels so surreal.

Kyle Carpenter - Medal of Honor recipient. 

In 2010, he covered a live grenade with his body, saving a fellow Marine’s life. I photograph celebrities all the time but it’s these people that catch my attention and get my respect.

Plans for the week (because I’d feel better seeing it in words)

Monday: Rest day, work 10-6

Tuesday: Rest day, work 8-3, head to MEPS hotel

Wednesday: Go to MEPS, hopefully not get disqualified and hopefully swear in, head home then maybe go for a run?

100% clean eating, especially because I’m taking a ton of rest days. Can’t afford to be disqualified for weight. It always surprises people when I tell them how much I weigh because apparently I look lighter, which is good and all, but because I don’t know my body fat percentage I can’t help but think that maybe MEPS could see a problem when I step on the scale.

Prayers would be much appreciated!!

"C.S. Lewis says that fiction is able to sneak past the watchful dragons of religion. It becomes more powerful to speak in poetry, that the song goes straight to the heart, whereas the numbers and the math of it, will never be able to reach that.” - Jon Foreman

You start to look like what you believe. We float through time like a stream. But the waters of time are made up by you and I… 

If you change the world for you, you change it for me.
