you make me smile so hard, my heart feels like it’s going to burst.

“A pastor friend of mine once asked me, “Judah, do you know any pimps?”
“Um, no?” I was a bit confused about where this conversation was going.

“To me, my Christian faith is all about being held, comforted, forgiven, strengthened, and loved—yet somehow that message gets lost on most of us, and we tend only to remember the religious nutters or the God of endless school assemblies. This is no one’s fault, it is just life. Our job is to…

but if you wanted to
we could walk next to each other

"Every Thursday, I quit something,” Goff says. It’s one of his more infamous habits, one that he follows faithfully—and, often, dramatically. He’s been known to break apartment leases, throw out furniture and quit jobs. “You can quit cussing if you want,” he says, “but go a little…
