This is me! Just a guy from Minneapolis.
Many people feel like they are genuinely worthless, and I created Valued with the mission of combating that mindset. My prayer is that somehow, whether that be through this website, word of mouth, or the message received from a shirt or sticker, people everywhere would stop and think for a second: Wow. There is somebody out there that values me. Everyone, no matter who they are, has value.
This is the true heart behind parades, protests, and pride; too often the broken, the disadvantaged and the unpopular are overlooked in our cruel society. My heart beats for those who don't know where to turn when life sucks. If someone hurt you, I'm sorry. If life dealt you a bad hand, I'm sorry. If you have made mistakes, they do not define you.
If you feel profiled, labeled, patronized, ashamed, or alone... know this: your worth isn't defined by past experiences or the labels you've received. Your worth isn't defined by who you perceive yourself as, but by who you are; you have a unique personality, dreams, gifts and talents that the world needs.
YOU ARE VALUED.
