Over the next few weeks, we want to share a few of our BIGGEST and DEEPEST-held beliefs here, at Seeds … and we hope it sparks and connects with something DEEP in you, as we do. May we continue to find our stories in the stories of one another. 

This is the first…

It is the primary fuel for all we do.

This kind of love sustains fierce dreams.

Or is it about reaching out to a new someone that is capturing your attention and heart?

Do you not know your something to live or fight for yet? Are you still on the hunt? Don’t compare, measure, or allow the messages that you are not enough, moving too slow, or going too fast to diminish you. Keep walking, exploring, and trusting—even before you understand it… (Read more in this excerpt from Soulfully Ablaze.)

When the dignity, security, and well-being
of those who BElong to us
—one or many—
are being challenged,
do something.
Let’s standTALL.
Let’s be upstanders. Let’s shout.
My friend, to BE a part of this formidable, unstoppable army,
you need only claim it.
a warrior of love.

YOU are loved.

We belong to each other.
Let’s standTALL together and light up the world.
