Sweet child,

Don’t lose your spark, your wonder, your passion.

The world will try to confine you and hold you back, but you were made to be free. You were made to inspire the hearts of others, just as you’ve inspired mine.

You walk to the beat of your own drum, and I admire you for it. You know exactly what you like, and the opinions of others don’t stand in your way.

You see the world differently, and you’ve stretched me to do the same.

The world needs more people like you.

The world needs your fire.

I need your fire.

Ignite the world around you with your passion and don’t lose who you are in the noise that surrounds you.

God has gifted you to see the world differently. To change the world. To inspire others.

I know it’s a big ask, but you don’t have to do it alone. God will equip you. He will guide you. Don’t rely on yourself. Turn to Him. Listen to Him. Follow Him.

You were created for amazing things. And with God’s help, you will do amazing things.
