I have an online friend from Kenya who works to empower youth in his community. Over the holidays, he spent time visiting nearby orphanages. He asked for friends to send messages of encouragement that he could share with the children. Rather than just sending words of affirmation, I turned these into little sketches, quickly made with inktense watercolor pencils and zig-writer markers.
Honestly, I think MOST of us need to regularly be reminded of these truths!
