Fierce Friday | Amy Hehre

What makes you a L I O N?

@amyhehre: “I value my purpose. My vision is laser focused & I believe in every dream that captures my heart. I’m powered by passion and empathy. Comfort doesn’t tempt me. I want to be vulnerable and aware of the pain in others. I believe in falling in love a thousand times & families that don’t share blood. I hear my God loudly. I walk with a Savior who fills my heart with grace and unique convictions.”

What makes you H U M B L E?

@amyhehre: “I trade vanity for peace & recognize my value as a product of the love that has been invested in my life. My endurance is fueled by prayer and backed with years of failure. I’m aware of my many weaknesses and appreciate a world that is bigger than myself.”

Please do not pass up this photo thinking this is just another (insanely beautiful) white girl holding a foreign black baby and patting herself on the back for a job well done. This girl has worked her ass off for years to create a children’s hospital in Kenya, a plan that is coming to fruition. She is moving there within the year and will dedicate the rest of her life to this. What Amy, her husband Rob, and the team they have built are accomplishing is nothing short of incredible. So proud to have been her roommate, so grateful to have her as a forever friend. Time and distance truly knows no bounds where she is concerned.

I love you, Ames. I’m thankful that souls like yours roam this earth.
