Thoughts from Dani. :)

Hey everyone! Guess what...WE ARE HOME! We got to surprise our families and it was great. I just have to say how blessed I feel. I feel like I grew so much over the past month and I know that this once in a life time experience has changed me forever. I appreciate everything I have and everyone in my life so much more than I ever have before. I can't believe that I lived in a van with two other people for a MONTH! I would have never thought that this would be something that I would ever do. I *used to be* one who would do my hair and make-up every day and enjoyed the finer things in life, and now I don't care if my hair and make-up is done and don't really care what I am wearing or what kinds of things I own. It feels great to be free from those things of this world. My focus is more on God instead of those things. I also feel so much more aware of other people and what God is telling me to do or who he wants me to talk to. I know that from now on I will be able to keep my heart and mind open for what God wants to do. I am so excited for the next time I am out shopping, getting groceries, or at school and I feel God leading me to talk to someone. This joy ride is not over. It will continue on in my every day life and I promise that. Again I feel so blessed for being able to do this, for all of the people that helped make it happen, for all of the prayers, for all of the people we encountered, and most of all for God using us to do His work. I will never be the same again.

I also want to write this to Brooke and Kiersten:
You two have become two of my closest friends. I am so glad that I finally found two great people to do something radical for God with me. I feel so close to you two and I will never ever ever forget the times we had together. You mean so much to me and I love you girls with all of my heart.

What will God have me do next? :)

  1. Dani... yes, the journey was radical - radical for God, and if you're going to be radical, I can't think of a better person to do it for! Your journey was rich and now as you continue through life, there will be many more opportunities to invest that richness into the lives of others. You are a beautiful child of God, with whom He is crazy about. So, as you do crazy things for Him, it is just a reflection of His crazy love for you. Lavish in it and reflect it and you won't go wrong.

    Lots of love & hugs...
