To Write Love on Her Arms is a nonprofit organization founded by Jamie Tworkowski is 2007. It started out as a simple desire to help a friend, Renee Yohe, who was struggling with depression, self-injury, addiction, and suicidal thoughts. Tworkowski began selling t-shirts in an effort to raise money to pay for Yohe's treatment, and he later named the story "To Write Love on Her Arms."

Today, TWLOHA sells clothing, books, accessories and more to spread mental health and addiction awareness, and to give hope to those who are struggling. Their merchandise is often designed with powerful messages or phrases such as, "And So I Kept Living" and "Love Is Still The Most Powerful Force On The Planet."

Now that you know a little bit about what this organization is all about, let me show you some impressive stats.

TWLOHA has donated over 1.5 million dollars to treatment and recovery and granted funding to 73 unique organizations and counseling practices.

TWLOHA has shipped merchandise representing mental health and addiction awareness to 74 countries.

TWLOHA has responded to 180,000 messages from people in over 100 countries around the world.

TWLOHA has shared over 600 blog posts from contributors who wanted to let others know that they aren't alone in their pain.

Sounds like this nonprofit is doing some pretty amazing things, huh? Because it is! TWLOHA has given hope and real help to so many people around the world, including myself.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
