“Before You Meet Prince Charming” by Sarah Mally

Today’s review is on a book called “Before You Meet Prince Charming.”

Girls. We are called to SO MUCH MORE than dreaming of our future, dwelling on Mr. Right, and hoping he will ask you to the dance/date/party/game/etc.

We are first and foremost The Bride of Christ. He loves us girls. Yes. Look at Him as the One who will hold your hand. The One who smiles that one way that makes your heart flutter.

Photos of Family

Hi guys! I have some photos of family.. Its a new app that lets me take pictures of more than just myself.  It does look different, so I am going to need you guys to comment down below which one I should keep using. The old app lets me take a lot more different pictures of different events, while this new one lets me take photos of different people. I think I’m just going to use both, but let me know which photo of me you like better.

Here are pics of my family. Read more »

What Do I Name This Post?

HI.

Unlike any previous posts, I have absolutely no plan for this weeks post. Let’s dive in and see what it turns out to be.

Graduation Week!

Ridiculously excited! I’m going to be a in High school next year! I’m home schooled, so I won’t be subject to the High School stuff I don’t want to know about, but still I mean that’s only 4 years of school left! AHHHH!
(SIDE NOTE: forgive me for running with scissors.)

Just a note guys, do I need to make my posts shorter? Are they boring to read if they are too long? Or are they a good length? Comment below and let me know.
Also, on the same note. Read more »

The Resurrection

Hey guys. I was just thinking about a writing project I’m currently working on. I am SOO blessed to have such an amazing church with such amazing people to work with, and such amazing friends and piers. I absolutely love my life. This year I have permission to write the VBS skit. A small portion of the VBS Day is a skit, portraying the Bible stories, theme, and Jesus in the skit. I am so thrilled to be able to use my love for writing to bless the church. It’s an answered prayer, and I’m so excited.

VBS is three days long at my church, and so I have to write three short skits. The first day’s theme is focused on “Let’s Spend S’more Time With Jesus.” I felt convicted writing that skit, so I decided to sit outside on our porch and spend some more time with Jesus.

I wanted to get to know Him. I’ve been sort of distracted this last few weeks by a friend from church, and I want to focus on how much Jesus loves me. So I approached Him with a heart full of love that wanted to be expressed. Of course being a writer, I dug out my Idea Book and (I use a mechanical pencil) clicked my pencil, and began to meditate. Here’s what I came up with: Read more »

3 Excuses We Make When We Read and How to Beat Them

What is it with Teens and young adults reading anything and everything these days?! It’s ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous. Everything we as people read, see, or hear is feeding our inner being. What are we feeding ourselves?! We have not been called to be of this world, but we tend to make excuses as to why we can make acceptations.

TRASH IT ALL! We as tweens, teens, and young adults need to move beyond the world.

This post is part of a Rebellion started by Gray Marie at Writing is Life. And since there are so many great posts on what and why we shouldn’t be reading a lot of these things, I’m doing something different. I’m going to help battle the temptation. Read more »

Sunday Mornings

Hey guys, this is a very long post. 1600 words, so fasten your seat belts, and “We’re gonna cruise through this.”

And I got my cast off!

My Sunday morning start Saturday night. Usually it’s pretty late. I start by packing lunch for Kate and I, picking my outfit, and studying the next day’s Sunday school lesson. I pray that God will give me His Holy Spirit and speak to the children through me. I ask that He opens their hearts to hear, and He will guide me on how to handle the schedule on that particular day, as well as any difficulties or mishaps that might occur.

I spend the last three hours of the night half asleep and half awake, panicking that we will over sleep. The alarm rings at 7:00 am and Kate gets up to get dressed. She takes the longest, so I make her get up before me.
About 7:40 she is done, and I get up. I dress and make my hair. I am always read exactly 10 minutes after I enter the bathroom.
I double and triple check my Read more »

Memorial Day

Hi.

Something quick I’m wipping up on the go. I’m late for Memorial Day, but I still want to add my two cents.

Thank you to all those who gave their lives for our freedom.

Guys. As we remember these guys and girls who gave their lives, let’s not forget that we have hundreds of people around us that are still living. Let’s keep in mind that as we show our respect to all the people who died in action, they don’t know it. They can’t hear our thanks, can’t see or tears, and don’t feel the gratitude that we give them. So let’s keep our hearts in the place where as people, we say thank you, shed tears, and express our gratitude to those who are STILL ALIVE! They can hear us, and see us. They need our encouragement and prayers.

Let’s change our outlook on Memorial Day this year. Let’s make it our goal to respect police men and women, firemen and women, those in the Air Force, the Navy, and the Marine that are living their lives TODAY for us. Risking all they have, for our freedom and safety. Pray for their families, and them.

Have a very blessed week. And keep them all in mind guys.
