beautiful (and so cute!): soak in the wisdom and simplicity of this 5-year-old

I love this video. so. much.

I just saw it this morning and its innocence and simplicity spoke volumes to my heart.

But it also got me thinking: Do you sometimes feel the pressure to project a certain image of adulthood, maturity, and the need to have all the answers. Or perhaps, to look very sophisticated.

Maybe Jesus was on to something very substantive about having ‘childlike faith.’

It’s obvious that we need to all grow up but how do we do it in a way that still maintains our childlike spirit?

Thank you, Naomi, for being my ‘this week’s inspiration.’  Sadly, the famine and drought in the Horn of Africa hasn’t just impacted a 1000 people but rather, 13.3 million people. But thank you for doing something courageous and beautiful. You are teaching many of us a great lesson.

You can check out Naomi’s birthday campaign here if you want to contribute and I hope you’ll consider giving away your birthday because let’s be honest, we all want more stuff but do we need more stuff?

Let’s live lifestyles of enough.

One Day’s Wages

My Instagram

My Padawan. My son. My youngest. Encouraging him to not just hit the hoop courts but also the books. Minhee and I met these college boys when we first arrived in Seattle in 1997. They were part of our bible study that we led in our apartment for college students. They were also among the group of 7 people that helped start @seattlequest.

Much has changed in the world...but not their friendship and love. Thank you Jin and George. We love and honor you. These are crazy times in our country and larger world but nevertheless, we're going to keep pursuing the things that God has placed upon our hearts. We're pressing forward...doing our part to reflect mercy, compassion, and justice - locally and globally.

Wednesdays are my @onedayswages office day and I especially love the culmination of hard work for our interns, volunteers, 2 full-time staff, and board as we collaborate with our NGO partners. This week, we signed these checks as we granted out over $75,000 to provide better health care for mothers and their families in Mali and Nepal.

THANK YOU for making this possible Your classic play it cool because you're visiting your old stomping grounds at Princeton and pretend you're not cold but in actuality, you're freezing picture. 20 years, 2 weeks, and counting. What a journey with this woman. I love her...and I want to keep growing in love, honor, and respect. Great to catch up with @jlin7 in Brooklyn at the Nets game. Grateful for his partnership with @onedayswages to support our Girls' Empowerment Fund. The season hasn't been what he hoped for with major injuries...but we can't wait to see you back on the court soon and do what you do. Stay encouraged, brother. Thanks for your faithful witness for Christ.
