Every year, its only been me and God in my bedroom alone for the night of my birthday. This year was many different thanks to some very loving people who surprised me with a very unexpected birthday party and gifts!! The most memorable part of the night for me, was seeing you smile so big while handing my hand because you could tell I happy. ❤️ @laurenn__emilyy ☺️ Huge thank you to all of you guys who sent me happy birthday wishes and bought me TONS of Martinelli's! And I can't express how much it meant to me see all of you guys who came to the party. It's becoming more real to me that I don't have friends because you guys are family and nothing less. ❤️ @destineedanyail @_mrjones2u @caseharrell @cabel_hallum @miichelle_lynn @q.duvall @ashlin_brooke @nckstevens @mr.pennynickel @lexabrooke @tiffany.holmes18 @braxyb_b.hizzle at Little Rock, Arkansas

I had an incredible time visiting this place a while a back! Now I’m even more excited to explore it this weekend with an incredible friend of mine @michaelak_21 We met in 2013 and due to proximity of were we live in the state, we really haven’t gotten the change to hang out since church camp! But low and behold, the time for adventure has come! 😁🤗 A few months ago me and my friend @caseharrell set out for an adventure in the mountains. During this experience, God unraveled the mystery of what has been happening to me in the last two years. I created a short film about it, the link to film is in the bio. at Mount Magazine

“So, when I was in middle school, I was volunteering over the weekend to help the 5 and 6 graders trip. I was mainly there to do the girls free time activity of getting their air and nails done. I must have done about 35-40 girls’ hair, all of them coming up afterwards telling me that they loved it. I decided right then and there that I wanted to do this for a living. In high school I stopped caring my senior year about my grades and tests. When it came time to ace the ACT I basically failed it, still thinking that I wanted to do hair and makeup. I even stopped looking for other opportunities to use this for the lore, I was just looking at it as a money/career type of situation. Well once I started to go to school for it, I came home crying the first and everyday afterwards. As someone who had their whole life raped around this idea I was devastated to not actually be in love with what I was doing. My mother told me that I needed to decide about this. Whether I was going to continue to cry and do something I wasn’t enjoying or investigate going to school somewhere else. I prayed about it to the lord and at the time I didn’t hear the voice of him. I was not blessed with that the of gift. So, I didn’t hear anything and decided, without him, that I was going to stay. Not even a full week later, I get a call from the beauty school telling me that they are shutting down. I was furious! I was happy! I was so many emotions all at once I couldn’t even form a sentence. So, I ended up calling my mom and letting her know what was happening and she was so happy, she said “Katie! This is wonderful the Lord has blessed you in this moment.” I didn’t really feel blessed though. Looking back on it though I was EXTREMLY blessed with that door he slammed in my face telling me “NO! My love tis is not for you, you are going to do so much better that what you ever thought you could do”” - @kaktiss_katie_3 at Little Rock, Arkansas

I have had had really bad car problems my whole life. Just from this year alone, I have been through four cars and is caused from different things like engine breaking down, or transmission being shot, and etc. This summer I had three different people come up to me tell me this. "I don't know what this means to you, but I felt like God wanted me to tell you that he will give you a car in his timing." Two weeks ago, A man blessed me with a car! The car was a standard car that I had to learn how to drive, and now I don't ever want to switch back to automatic. While I was driving the car, I remember saying this to myself, "I would never want to drive a nice standard car until I have learned how to drive this one well." In a week, I learned how to drive the car well. Then it broke down on the side road. I wasn't frustrated because this was normal to happen to me, so I just began to laugh. Little did I know, God had plan and this was part of the process. The same guy who helped me to get that first car, helped bless me with this new one I just got yesterday!! It is 2014 Nissan Versa!! Yesterday when I went to go pick the car up, I realized that I had not paid for insurance and I didn't have the money to pay for it, however, It it just so happened that mom called me and told me I had received the random check in the mail.... and it was exactly what I needed for me to pay for insurance and get the car. • • • #quote #overcome #limitless #depression #gym #storytellingphotography #arkansas #littlerock #rivermarket

“I remember when I decided to be a dentist. My cousin was a dentist, so I would just go to U of A, major in biology, and graduate dental school to work with her + make LOTS of money. I’d never have to worry. Since I’ve come to college, which did not happen to be U of A btw, God has flipped MY plan upside down. First with bringing me to UALR, then with calling me into a place of unrest. I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t function, I felt alone when I was surrounded by family, the whole nine. When I finally asked God why, He told me He was calling me into something greater than any plan I could come up with. He wanted me to lay down my plan and pick up His purpose for me: to be a campus missionary, disciple young women, and ultimately just be His daughter. So that’s what I’m up to.” - @alexandriareece98 • • • #portrait #life_portraits #postthepeople #fineartphotography #fineartportrait at Little Rock, Arkansas

In January of this year, I sat down and asked myself the question, "If money wasn't an issue, what would I wan't to do everyday for the rest of my life?"

“My freshman year of school I put in an application to one of my dream jobs which was working at a coffee shop. 3 weeks later I got the job, and my life has completely changed since then. Sounds like such a small thing doesn’t it? 😉 What small thing can you do today to change your life forever?” - Joe Cline • • • #love #happy #friendship #picoftheday #photooftheday #littlerock #tommynorman #friends #fun #cute #life #lifestyle #lifestylephotography #instarock #northlittlerock #northlittlerockarkansas #community #dreamcenter #ardreamcenter #projects #living #emotional #emotion #people #story #eat #downtown at Little Rock, Arkansas

"It’s funny how the same situation can result in completely different outcomes, depending on the person experiencing it. Why? Perspective. I was born into a Christian home and placed my faith in Jesus at a young age. However, I wasn’t very mature in my faith for many years. I still had the material pleasures of life at the forefront of my decision-making process. I wanted to be a neurosurgeon – only because they made a lot of money. However, I was also impatient and didn’t want to wait until I was 30 to start raking in the dough, so I decided to be a biomedical engineer instead. Seems like a solid plan, right? Well, everything changed when I left home and moved to another city to attend university. For the first time in my life, I was being presented with multiple worldviews with which I had to contend. Why is Christianity true? Was it simply the faith of my parents, or was it my faith? This line of questioning led me to do a lot of research on why I believed what I believed. The more I started to understand who Jesus was and who I was in Him, the more I realized that my motives in life were wrong – no, more than that, they were evil. I couldn’t serve both God and money. So at age 19, I gave my desire to pursue wealth over to God, and prayed about how I could serve Him wholeheartedly instead. What’s cool is that we worship a God who doesn’t waste the gifts and talents He has given us, or the skills we have honed during our season of rebellion against Him. He takes us as we are and uses us to build His Kingdom. God birthed in me a passion to spread His Gospel to the ends of the earth. Today, the primary reason I work is to financially support missionaries around the world, so that every single person on planet Earth has a chance to hear the story of the God who loves them and gave Himself for them." - @ro.richard • • • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • • • #quote #overcome #limitless #storytellingphotography #arkansas #littlerock #rivermarket #engineering #canada #regional #newlife #glr at Blue Sail Coffee Little Rock

“Before I knew my identity in Christ and what a true, fruitful relationship with him was, I wanted to be known by people rather than my God. I built my identity in social clubs, activities and filled my schedule so I could always be business. Little did I understand, BUSY stands for “Busy Under Satan’s Yoke.” Halfway through college at the U of A, I met a group of four women who radically changed my idea of Christ’s love and grace. They showed me how to seek him every day and build a loving relationship with him. Reading the word- the bread of truth! And gaining the confidence of who I was in him. I wanted the Lord to know my heart and me to know his heart. After graduating, I still had strongholds of the enemy I needed to work through. Traps like pride, comparison, and jealousy. I learned about the abundance of God’s grace. That he was my center. He would get me out of these snares. In the Fall of 2016, I decided to put in my two weeks at my job downtown as God was calling me to build a place where people could gather and connect. I realized the “why” behind me this would be the Community of people, all different types of people. And the “how” would be through a modern-day gathering well: a coffeehouse! God has taught me so much since opening up the doors of Nexus Coffee & Creative. I’ve learned so much from every team member, as we’ve become a family. I’ve been shown the diversity of downtown and the beautiful but also different people around me.Every day I’m made new in Jesus. And the light of the Lord is made evident when you walk through our doors. I want to continue to chase my lion on life! Always pursuing what challenges and grows me. God is so good like that. He opens up your heart and mind to a life well lived and a life well filled in him. Praise Jesus for that!” - @amy_moorehead • • • #portrait #coffee #arlocal # nexus coffee #life_portraits #idenity #uofa #lostforty #lostfortybrewing #arkansas #postthepeople #fineartphotography #fineartportrait at Nexus Coffee & Creative

"Being born with one hand means that every day becomes a challenge. Simple things that most people do without a second thought become time consuming tasks. Doing the dishes Buttoning a shirt Tying my shoes.. The greatest challenge I ever faced arose the day I stepped foot in the gym. How do I start? CAN I start? There were dozens of machines.. I didn't know how to use any of them, or if I would ever be able to. My left arm was nearly in a state of atrophy and the entire left side of my body was unproportionally smaller than my right. Weak, Anxious, Insecure. Adapting to my own style of working out has been the greatest struggle of my life.But I decided that I wasn't going to accept my own very real excuses. It continues to be a learning experience every day.  I've learned to overcome almost all of my insecurities that drove me to anxiety and depression. If there's one thing that anyone learns from me, it's that what makes you different doesn't make you better or worse than the next guy, it just sets you apart from the crowd.I choose to take advantage of that difference." - @boujeebradley ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • • • #quote #overcome #limitless #depression #gym #storytellingphotography #arkansas #littlerock #rivermarket at Little Rock, Arkansas
