Last Thursday night, we began one of our favorite parts of the 18 Inch  Journey: Open Mic Nights. These nights are a chance for the students to  share their songs, poetry, art, photographs, dances and any other creative  expression that they have found themselves coming alive in. Open Mic Nights  are so special to us as a family because these are the moments where we get  to celebrate the students, to champion their greatness and to affirm that  they are seen and heard.

You are the most yourself when you are wrapped up in your purpose, not your position. -Steffany Gretzinger

You are the most yourself when you are wrapped up in your purpose, not your position.

Written by Jonathan David Helser Photographed by Sydnee Mela            In our first staff meeting of 2016, we took time to look back at the  last year and remember all that God had done.  We have an entire wall in  our office that we have painted with chalk paint to use in meetings for  planning and dreaming. We quickly filled up that wall with all the things  we could recount.  As the list grew bigger and bigger, I could feel joy and  faith brimming up inside my heart like a rising tide. …

"Part of the 'selah' moment is that moment of pausing and waiting on His cue, instead of just doing what you know to do. All of our best song ideas have come in the 'selah' moments where it's the pause, it's the hold on the one chord. And we're holding the pattern and waiting for God to breathe. Sometimes someone plays one note and it switches something in the room, and inspires a response." -Brian and Jenn Johnson
