Some of the quotes from the Unleashing Beauty Conference:

If you try to care about ALL the issues in the world, you actually end up caring about nothing.

If you want to know what people are passionate about, look at what they are willing to suffer for.

I don’t want to end my life being famous to Christians and unknown to the world.

We must keep an open mind so that we may perceive true beauty as God sees it

We are informed by the world but not conformed to it. Be students of the world.

Move conversations from superficial to signifigant; then significant to spiritual.

The most tragic moment in history was also the most beautiful moment is history.

Have you reduced your life so much that you mistake it living? It’s time to awaken beauty.
