A huge thank you to all the members of the Youth Action Council of Arizona for participating in a very successful Transforming the Heart of Your Story workshop! It was a blessing to be invited. You all are incredible people with amazing stories to share. I can’t wait to hear how they change the world! I know it’s so easy to focus solely on lofty things such as policy change in the self-advocacy movement. Therefore, I was totally encouraged by your desires to also help others discover true hope and purpose in their everyday lives, no matter what limitations they face. You guys motivate me to keep sharing the importance of storytelling!
“For God chose to save us through our Lord Jesus Christ, not to pour out his anger on us. Christ died for us so that, whether we are dead or alive when he returns, we can live with him forever. So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.” -1 Thessalonians 5:9-11
