❤️ LOVE NEVER ENDS

"There are moments on the trail when Karen Sparks stops running. She puts her hands to her knees, opens her mouth, and lets the sound that’s been building find release. The noise starts low and feral, then rises from the depths, growing sharp and loud enough to echo under the canopy of oaks where she runs each day. Karen doesn’t care who hears it. The sound fuels her."

"We are not slaves to fear, pain, debt, abusive relationships, self-doubt, or any evil or darkness. We are children of God firmly rooted in love and light. Jesus is real... we can stand up and dream again. Love never ends." -Karen Sparks
