Ultimately it is our connections that matter most. I can say, “I am a mother, a daughter, a writer, a teacher, a sister, a friend.” But all of that self-definition is only the beginning. I firmly believe that the only thing that can truly change us is our relationship with each other. We grow by being faithful, by being inspired, by suffering loss, by loving. And we need to be in community with others to grow in these ways.
