In last week’s surf competition she came in 3rd. I was impressed with Erin and her entire family; and the tremendous support system they’ve built. Her father had a great perspective.

From the moment you said yes to Jesus, you were meant to be amazing. Your setbacks are merely preparation along the way. You can choose to let the setbacks drag you down or choose to look beyond them and see that God’s plan is still at work.
God has big plans for you, but our attitudes will either carry us on to our destiny or cause us to miss it completely. So carry the Brooks family perspective with you, always.
