Notes and Quotes:

  • “The majority of the way you share the gospel is not even always with words, and the words just sit on top of the actions.”
  • “The world tells me I’m better because I was born into a biological family . . . . But that is not the way God sees things.”
  • “God’s overwhelming love for us is not limited to us. It’s only limited because we don’t express it or share it or serve somebody.”
