David Green-Owner of Hobby Lobby I’ve neglected expressing myself lately in regards to social media, as I oftentimes wonder why I do it. If it means anything really, if it’s worth the investment, but regardless I feel the need to write, so today I found myself writing by clicking keys on my computer rather than etching in my journal. It’s been on my heart this week, and...
A Beautiful Mess: Ali's Two Cents Worth
We set off downtown Indianapolis on a mission. Thirty minutes to walk the streets of downtown available, looking for an opportunity presented itself to see the world in a more compassionate and intentional way. But 25 minutes in and nothing seemed to happen, just the hustle and bustle of American’s carrying about their everyday life in and out of meetings, theaters showing the latest...
You never really know what you are signing up for when you decide to live the grand adventure and hand over the keys to your car. There is much to say but for now I’ll start with the mission we are on right now here in Indianapolis.

It's not as simple as you think.
I came to the realization regardless of the fact you may be ambitious, passionate, motivated, and what you may even think as empathatic. Sometimes You just don’t have it all figured out…For my life, I’m realizing more often than not I’m not as close to hitting the mark as I would have liked. I’ve never wanted to say things just for the sake of saying them. I believe...
