About God and Faith: 
Where faith is - there is courage, there is fortitude, there is steadfastness and strength. . . .

Light up, then, the lamp of faith in your heart. . . . It will lead you safely through the mists of doubt and the black darkness of despair; along the narrow, thorny ways of sickness and sorrow, and over the treacherous places of temptation and uncertainty.” - James Allen, English author of “As A Man Thinketh”

And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.."
