Joel, you broke me wide open. Vulnerability, transparency, openness like you’ve expressed is a rare find, and an even rarer gift. Your writing makes me want to back to the beginning to start over anew. Thank you for raising the bar in so very many ways.

The words, the emotion, all of it.

There is no possible way you could know this side of Heaven how many lives you’ve touched and in doing so saved them from fulfilling their destiny and God’s purpose … but on the other side, it’ll all be clear.

Please continue on your journey. We’re with you, cheering you, and learning from you in ways you can’t imagine.

Peace be with you.
