“We impress people with our supposed perfections, but we connect with each other in our flaws.” -Donald Miller

In a recent blog post, author Donald Miller talks about about no matter how much we change, we still feel like that rejected kid with whatever fill-in-the-blank shortcomings we had (or still have). Learning to love our flaws is key to healing, forgiving and living life fully. But it’s also a great way to connect with others.

This year at your Help-Portrait events, try connecting with others not on the basis of giving and receiving, but on the basis of your shared human experience.

We’re all flawed. And we’re all beautiful.
