Eight Days a Week is a project meant to encourage and inspire its participants (a fabulous group of photographers from across North America) to document what they see and to share it with the world. There are no “rules” – there is only vulnerability in the sharing of our own variations on the topic.

For my part, I’ve decided to turn my camera to those people that I call friend. They are my most important relationships. They are who I run to eight days a week – in joy and in sadness. I owe them everything.

Lauren. She is thoughtful, generous, and opinionated in all the best sorts of ways. I admire her purposeful faith and the way she wrestles with what it means to really live it. She is strong and sturdy (even when she’s weak and uncertain). She is where I break all the rules regarding talk of politics, religion, and any other thing that might bring people to contention. It takes just the right blend of humility, grace, and confidence to navigate those waters well. And, she’s got it.

Ryan. He is kindness and wit, honesty and sharp humor. He is loyal, generous and protective of what he holds dear. He is where I go when I want straight talk served up with a side of inappropriate humor (as it turns out, we are alike in that way). He is a kindred spirit.

P.S. Yes, he is technically family (in-law!). I promised myself that I would not feature “family” in this project outside of my husband. But, I am letting him in under in-law status and I feel okay about that.

Denise. Our friendship is the result of priestly matchmaking. (Seriously, if priesting ever fails you Shearon you could get a job with Bumble BFF). Denise is all beating heart, seriously solid intuition and purposeful living at its most honest . She is who I turn to in my anger and my grief. She listens, challenges, laughs, comforts, and loves me back to hopefulness. She reminds me that authenticity and vulnerability are worth every single drop of discomfort. Every. Single. Drop.
