Shoot like a Girl (#31days)

shoot like a girl

Because there are stories in every single day, I keep my eyes open.

Because moments can’t be recreated, I pray to drink them all in.

Because our stories are the stories that might bring life to new stories, I narrate transformation and hope.

This month, I’ll share 31 images that have brought hope to me. Images like this one, taken in a mud hut in Kenya. Our priority was to learn about life for a single mom and her kids in the African bush. Her priority was to give us refreshment on a hot summer day with sodas and some crisp biscuits. Her offering was sweet communion to us. Sweet humbling common union.

This month, you’ll see my heart as I show you the hearts of others who have entered my world. I’ll shoot like a girl for you. I’d love to know how these images impact your story.

  1. Looking forward to the next 30 days! Also… praying for the person that stole your laptop and for your heart. Grief over lost thoughts, word, and memories is very real.

  2. How has this image impacted my story? Wel… I’ve seen a lot about the #31Days challenge but knew it wasn’t the right time. This October is going to be a crazy one for me. Oh, but then I read this post. And I signed up. This should be interesting.

  3. I’m looking forward to this too, Ronne. And I might just get my WP account going today. You’ve shown me it doesn’t have to be a lot.

    1. The computer hasn’t returned yet. This project is helping me focus on what’s good and right and true – and it’s helping me to keep story alive in my heart as I rewrite the ones that were on the computer.

  4. Your stories and images always shape “our stories” whether you know it or not! Looking forward to the rest of this series!

  5. I’m a fellow 31 Day-er and I love your posts. I’m sorry about the loss of your computer, but inspired by your perseverance.
