This is our risk taker, our dare devil, our brave girl, our ‘I want to sky dive’ kid and she’s only 9 years old. Heaven help us…she scares us to death sometimes. She’s standing here at the summit of Haleakala in Maui…yeah just an elevation of  over 10,000 feet! (I was sweating bullets and it was cold and windy!)

And yet I absolutely LOVE her free spirit, her dream big attitude, her live life to the fullest quest. It’s refreshing and bold and brave. I wonder what God created her to do in her lifetime…I wonder how she’ll impact this world and I wonder what her legacy will be.

How about this definition? Yep, that’s her!


1.possessing or exhibiting courage or courageous endurance.
2.making a fine appearance.
3. excellent; fine; admirable.
And scripture to back it up…

Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6

Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. 1 Corinthians 16:13

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

 I find myself wanting to be more and more like this…bold for what I believe in and brave in making a difference, do you?
