to write love on her arms

TWLOHA is non-profit that seeks to help those struggling with depression, suicide and addiction. It's been a few years ago that I first heard about the organization and it's continued to grow since then. It all began when some friends wanted to help Renee, a 19 year-old girl who was scared to enter rehab, saying she wasn't ready yet. Seeing the cuts and scars she had on her arms, the friends wanted to write love on her arms instead. The site has links to resources if you or someone you know needs help with any of the things that have become TWLOHA's mission. 

To me, we don't have to always advertise the fact that we're Christians. We can simply love others and as Jesus would and let them see we're different. Let them see that we have something they want. Let our faith be a lifestyle instead of just words...
