real talk // be brave.



do you know Megan over at Rivers & Roads? she has a print shop that you can find here! i wanted to share with you her "be brave" print. it is not only gorgeous, it is also inspiring. & it gets me thinking, what does being brave entail? are you only brave if you fight off a dragon & save the princess? or is being brave something more?

maybe you're brave when you take a little time out of your day to intentionally show love & grace to someone else.
maybe you're brave when put your spouse or your friends needs in front of your own.
maybe you're brave when you share your struggles & allow your vulnerability to be encouraging to others.
maybe you're brave when you let go of the bitterness in your heart & choose to forgive.
maybe you're brave when you say yes to that opportunity without knowing all the answers & trust God with the details

i love this reminder to be brave everyday! i have the print displayed on the mantel in my bedroom in hopes that each morning when i wake up & see it.... it will be a simple reminder for me to be brave through the help of Jesus!



how can you be brave today?

  17. This is so great! Bravery is manifest in so many ways and we should do it. We Christians are called to be bold and brave. I definitely need to be better about that. Maybe I need to check out this print and use it as a reminder as well.
