Wow! This just made my day. Thank you so much for reading and for reaching out to me, Elīza. I’m glad it resonated with you and your friends!

I don’t believe in coincidences, so I don’t think the timing was an accident here. I don’t assume anyone else’s religious beliefs, and I don’t push mine on others, but I do believe that God brings people into our lives at certain moments to help us along our journey. You’ve impacted me, and I will be praying for you as you consider next steps. Don’t let fear steal your passion from you!

Thanks again, and I wish you the best.

P.S. — I love the Tolkien reference in your bio!
