"Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don't be afraid."
This quote by Frederick Buechner has yet to leave my mind. Taken as an excerpt from his book, Beyond Words: Daily Readings in the ABCs of Faith, Buechner's words continue to leave a lasting impact on my life the more I think about them. From being a father and teaching my daughter how to brave this world, to being a husband and not fearing intimacy with my wife, and finally to exploring the challenges my work brings along with it.
