What is a Lifegiver?
When we speak, we do not wound, but infuse the conversation with power, truth, and encouragement.
When we serve, our sacrifice inspires others to serve out of the overflow.
When we invest, we are fully present, accepting, and inspire others to be exactly who they are meant to be.
Our success does not intimidate, but motivates others to do what they never thought possible.
Brief encounters aim to inspire life in a soul that has lingered in darkness.
Our strength is often quiet, our warmth contagious, and our confidence is unwavering.
This, we know, cannot come from our own strength. We believe it is found in humbly accepting our faults and seeing ourselves soberly in need of a God. We cannot breathe life without seeking the One whose breath created life. We cannot inspire without the One who inspires us to forgive. We cannot strengthen without the One who strengthens us. We cannot learn to love without the One who is love.
