About

The most important thing is to love people… although I know I often fail (due to selfish desires and sometimes cluelessness), my desire is to love people the way that they need to be loved. The way that I feel love, can be much different from another’s perception. Recently I have learned a lot about intent verses impact… in heart breaking ways. I desire that the impact from my actions will fully match the intentions of my heart and I desire it to always come from a place of love… I hope that I don’t fail you…

โ€œOur deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.โ€
~ Marianne Williamson

“The first time that You opened your eyes did You realize that you would be my Savior? And the first breath that left Your lips did You know that it would change this world forever?”
~Relient K

“You are everything that is bright and clean. And Youโ€™re covering me with Your majesty. And the truest sign of grace was this: That from wounded hands re-demption fell down, liberating man.

But the harder I try the more clearly can I feel the depth of our fall and the weight of it all. And so this might could be the most impossible thing: Your grandness in me making me clean. Glory, hallelujah!”

Hey friend, I am a youth minister in MS, and I absolutly love the name of your site. “Be the Moon… Reflect the Son.” I heard that phrase a few weeks ago and can not stop thinkin about it. Did you come up with it, or do you know where you got it from? The reason I’m asking is because i would love to put that on a t-shirt for the youth group, but don’t want to get sued for copy right infringment. What do you think?

hey there Stephen!
I am sad to say that no I did not come up with it… I got it from an AMAZING sermon from Louie Giglio at the Boston Passion Show in ’03 and it has stuck with me ever since. I don’t think it would break a copy right infringment & I have often thought about making a t-shirt too… so, if you make them… let me know… ๐Ÿ™‚ I’d love one!!

With His love ~G

There are teeshirts with the phrase on them “be the moon-reflect the son” and they are sold by Paul Hill-who is a Christian artist. However, I can’t find anything (yet) on the net of where to buy them. My nephew wants one (Paul came to his school recently) for Christmas and I LOVE that saying so I’m hunting everywhere to find one!

There’s a link for the Be the Moon shirts! Hope that helps! (so yes, I would imagine that it would be a copyright infringement to make your own shirt…but I don’t know that for sure)

awe, yea… maybe since one has been made, but I have no idea how that stuff works… since there are lots of shirts with the same things on them… maybe I’ll research it… thanks for the info!!

With His love! ~G
