girl shaped star | spoken word



I think I'm going to let this one speak for itself. I will say that this one is deeply, deeply personal for me, and comes from a lot of thought, sleepless nights and salt in wounds. My hope is that, maybe if you're like me, this might make you feel a little bit braver through the aches and pains.

Because we're all gonna make it. You're a girl-shaped star. And you are SO WORTH IT.

      Kate, Kate, Kate. This was gorgeous. Brilliant job. I really liked what you said in this. One of the things that really stuck out to me was when you were talking about the fact that He made us. Sometimes I look in the mirror and somewhere inside the word WORTHLESS pops into my head. I guess it's somehow drilled into us that a beautiful appearance = worth. I wish it wasn't that way. Next time that happens, I'm going to try to remember this, and try to remember that I am made by the Creator of the Universe, and that He thought I was worth DYING for.

      Thanks for this, girl. I'm very sorry to hear about that hard time you went through. I'm so happy to see that this hardship has brought you closer to Him.
