Identity is what our culture is viciously fighting to own the right to. The culture is trying so very desperately to give us each labels, tell us what we are to wear, how we are to talk, even what we are supposed to eat; and it has a very good reason to.

Identity is more than just an overused word thrown around in our youth groups. More than what people think about us, and more than what we think about ourselves. Our identity gives us motivation in life, endurance to overcome trials, satisfaction in our choices, and peace at the end of the day. We strive to maintain our identity and focus on upholding the image that we have dedicated so much time to obtain. Our identity gives us passion in life and joy from day to day.
