    Notes and Quotes:

    • “[God is] going to find us. It’s always light. You know, whether we go high or whether we go low, God is there. And God knows us.”
    • “No matter the situation that someone might find themselves in—good, bad, or whatever, indifferent— it’s important to understand that God is faithful through all of that.”
    • “If [God]  was going to take him away, I just couldn’t, you know, I couldn’t comprehend that. And I think the lesson from all of that was that for a girl who felt alone in her childhood, He wanted me to know that I could be loved.”
    • “So when I think about Psalm 139, I think about folks understanding that God is always with them, and that God is always present, that God is always knowing, and that to me is a running theme through the Bible, that God is.”
