“One of my favorite passages of scripture is the shortest one in the book. John 11: 35 simply says, “Jesus wept.” I love this verse because it shows a savior in touch with the human condition: pain. He wept. He allowed himself to feel grief and at that moment, tears streamed down his face like a river. He’s the friend that will sit with you and cry.”©Simone Holloway, 2020.

“I think that is what love does though: it confronts our prejudices and biases. Love calls us out on our crap and reminds us that there is so much more in life than what we’ve experienced. The more we love others, the more we come to love so many different things.”©Simone Holloway, 2020.
What would our world look like if we made each day count? If we took nothing for granted? Would we say we loved each other more? Would we hug each other a little bit tighter? Would we hold on a little bit longer? ©Simone Holloway, 2020.

“Throughout my creative journey, I have found myself the most creative in the wee hours of the morning, before the sun is up. While the world is sleeping soundly, I am dreaming with my eyes wide open creating and strategizing for the future. I think this the life of an artist, to do things a little different from their peers – to dream with one’s eyes wide open.”©Simone Holloway, 2020.

“I remember thinking that to desire thoughtfulness and intentionality in my love relationships was to desire too much. For the longest, I was in love-relationships that did the bare minimum. They did not exude any type of effort and was not willing to go the extra mile, yet they professed with confidence that they loved me. That my dears is not love. Love is thoughtful and intentional.”©Simone Holloway, 2020.
“I have decided that I am in this thing with the Lord forever. I’ve come to the place where I love things and people but I don’t love anything or anymore than the Lord. I love God more than my career. I love God more than the boy who has my heart. I love God more than my friends. I love God more than my family. I love God more and at any moment if he asks me to sacrifice it all, I am willing to walk away from it all. I don’t worship people and things, for the Lord alone is worthy of all my love, trust, and worship. “©Simone Holloway, 2020.
