Gina woke up at 5:30 this morning.  I was up and missing Grace like crazy.  I saw Gina in the corner of our room, under a dim light, reading scripture and writing.  Gina inspires me.  She has grown and changed so much since we first did this tour together starting in Houston in 2010.  Little did I know she was writing Emily and I these amazing notes of prayer.  Waking up to this made my heart sing.  I needed it.  And it made me so grateful for the people in my life who push me to be better and focus on what matters.  In the intensive, we talk a lot about surrounding yourself with people who love you enough to tell you when you are wrong, encourage you to use your gifts to the full and keep you on the right path.  Emily, Gina and Natalie do that for me.  “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” - Jim Rohn  My list of 5 used to bring me down and suck the life out of me.  My average was pretty low and that was my choice.  We have a choice as to how much the volume is turned up on the people in our lives.  I made a lot of tough - and tearful - decisions over the last three years that led me to my list now:  Ari + Grace (they count as one to me!), Emily, Susan, Gina and GOD. (I hate just listing 5 because so many people are equally important to me, but this is just who I literally spend the most time with.)  I’m SO grateful for how God has changed my heart to allow these people into my life.  To be the average of these 5 is humbling.  It makes me want to be my best for them, too.  Thank you, Gina, for raising the bar for me with your passion and devotion to what really matters.  I love you!!!!!!  Aaaaaand you are currently sticking your bum in my face as I type this : )  - Lara
