I feel fully alive when I am able to practically apply theological truths I learn to my everyday life. I also really love that feeling of creating a program or technical solution that solves a challenging problem in a unique way.

To me, being fully alive means to really be a doer of the word and not just a hearer even when it means to live life at the edge of your comfort zone.

To be fully alive is to not be afraid of asking the hard questions to each other and to write poetry.

Thank you for this.
To me, becoming fully alive is accepting yourself for your failures and mistakes, not pretending to be perfect, allowing yourself to be seen, real and vulnerable. It includes having those people who see you at your worst, who love you in your brokeness, and who aren't afraid of your darkness.

    Being vulnerable is definitely not an easy thing but in my own experience the most growth comes as a result of it. Thanks so much for sharing!

I believe being fully alive is a life lived unafraid of loving people radically, unafraid of being a little crazy, and unafraid to embrace the art inside of you!
