Holy Ambition

John Piper defines a Holy Ambition as something you really really really want to do…and that God wants you to do also.

 

I recently read a book titled Do Hard Things, written by twin brothers that were only 18 when the book was published. In this book (which I totally recommend reading by the way), these brothers were encouraging teens to break the social stigma that all teenagers want to do is party, drink, and do drugs. Because of this stereotype, teens are now tagged with low expectations and that they can’t really do anything worth while. Well, that is not true and this site is proof of that fact. The reason for me starting this blog was to combat the label that comes with low expectations and bring awareness to a big problem within my amazing country (America): human trafficking. It is a major problem just within my town and state, but its poison has also contaminated the other 49 states as well as many other countries around the world.

I believe that with spreading this awareness and sharing my passion with people all over can get other teenagers fired up to help rescue these needy and (for lack of a better term) poor unfortunate souls. I truly believe I have this God-given passion to somehow help the ones who have endured more than we can imagine. Please join me in this fight. Together we can change the world and numerous lives. As was stated in Do Hard Things,

“We can make a difference in the lives of slaves. It doesn’t really matter how young we are. It doesn’t matter if we have physical, mental, or emotional disabilities. It doesn’t matter the color of our skin or where we’re from. Anybody can make a difference and be a voice for the voiceless.” -Zach Hunter, age 16
