Awake, My Soul

Who are you?
Why are you here?
What is your purpose?
Where are you going?

There is nothing like a long, late night car ride home, listening to songs that make you ponder life’s deepest questions and also cause you to weep… not from being lost or a loss of purpose or identity, but rather due to an overwhelming realization of truths.

Truths that pierce your heart upon believing once again the answers to those questions … and as a result, stir up an intense desire for others to find those answers as well.

It’s my long life mission to share these truths with the world, starting first and foremost with the little souls entrusted to my care.

Though this photo to the left is unrelated to a night sky or a car ride tonight, in this moment captured even without saying a word, these children knew Who it was that they knelt before despite not fully understanding yet. Is this not what it’s all about anyway?


This version of “Awake, My Soul” by Mumford & Sons was that song tonight for me.

In these bodies, we will live

These bodies, we will die

Where you invest your love

You invest your life

Awake, my soul

You were made to meet your Maker
