"Sometimes they bring out the ugly Things/ attitudes in me That I didn't even realize were still in there And once they are revealed I can turn them over to God And ask him to clean that ugliness up And make me someone he can look at, smile and say that's my girl! I'm thankful for people things and hardships In my life that keep me growing In my relationship with my heavenly father"
"You have to be willing sometimes to listen to some remarkable bad opinions. Because if you say to someone, 'That's the silliest thing I've ever heard; get on out of here!'—then you'll never get anything out of that person again, and you might as well have a puppet on a string or a robot."
