“Church is not something you go to, it’s a family you belong to.” ⠀
I wanna talk about Rose Church today and how special of a place it is. I grew up in church but strayed, no pastors ever really knew me let alone my name, I was way too shy and introverted and I never felt like I belonged. I know I seem outgoing, it’s because I force myself to be, but if you really know me you know how emotionally tolling it is on me to be in an environment where I don’t know anyone or only know a few people. It takes every ounce of strength in me to not turn and run to the comfort of my home. Because of this, many people overlook me and it can be sometimes difficult to make friends because I rarely approach people I don’t know, but Rose Church, they’re different. From the beginning, people at Rose Church came up to me, and while it was a struggle at first to come out of my shell, I soon realized it was because this was a family and they wanted to know me. The head pastor knows me now by name, from the few conversations we’ve ever had, and to me that is life changing. To feel like I belong, like people want to get to know me, like I’m part of a family, is an inexplicable feeling. Find the community that wants to get to know you, no matter how shy or outgoing you are. ⠀

One of my favorite shots from exploring burned forests with @the.wilderness.collective. The creepy, foggy atmosphere made every new corner feel like a movie. Adventures like these give a refreshing new feel to photography and challenge me to take photos that are not my traditional style. It's always good to change things up a bit.

If there’s one place in the Southwest that I feel I need to spend more time in this would have to be it. Absolute endlessness (slide 3), in every sense of the word..
