Ten Quotes That Help Courtney

Channel Her Brave


2. “You need at least one friend who will help you move a body. No judgment. There

in a second. No explanation.” – Brene Brown

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man  stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit  belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and  sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again,  because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually  strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who  spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of  high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly,  so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know  victory nor defeat.” – Theodore Roosevelt

“It’s not enough to rage against the lie. You’ve got to replace it with the truth.” –  Bono

“Home is ultimately not about a place to live but about the people with whom you

are most fully alive. Home is about love, relationship, community, and belonging,

and we are all searching for home.” - Erwin McManus

Servanthood is a fine place to begin, but gradually we move toward mutual love

and genuine relationships. Someday, perhaps we can even say those words that

Ruth said to Naomi after years of friendship: "Where you go I will go, and where you

stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die

I will die, and there I will be buried" (Ruth 1:16-17).” -- Shane Claiborne


Courtney's Book, Faking Normal, which this whole celebration is about goes on sale February 25th. Do yourself a favor and check it out!

When Bodee Lennox, the quiet and awkward boy next door, comes to live with the Littrells, Alexi discovers an unlikely friend in "the Kool-Aid Kid," who has secrets of his own. As they lean on each other for support, Alexi gives him the strength to deal with his past, and Bodee helps her find the courage to finally face the truth.
