unsure, don’t care. it speaks!
If it doesn’t scare me, it ain’t big enough.
Work like it depends on you
Pray like it depends on God
They go together.
Love has a name.
Opinions are the cheapest commodities on earth.
You can’t influence a table you’re not seated at.
99% never see your foundation.
You need to do what your were created to do
So there is no backlog of Destiny’s on this earth.
We are not the competition. We are the difference.
If God gave it to me, then I can handle it.
Sometimes in order to turn a no into a yes, you need a maybe.
We know what it’s like to have a dream. We also know what it’s like to have those same dreams dashed with doubt. It comes from people around you saying it can’t be done, or perhaps it’s the voice within that struggles to hope against hope when others say it’s impossible.
The voices of doubt grow louder still – trying to convince you – you’re wrong.
But you can’t shake the sense, the feeling, the thought – ‘what if I’m right.’
We love to partner with those who dare to dream.
We don’t know if we’re your solution – but for now – we’re happy to be your ‘maybe’.
A voice of encouragement – to step out into the deep, the wild! and into all that God has for you.
