Connect the Dots

Hey blog, it's been a while. And let me tell you, life has jurastically changed this past month.
I've started a couple drafts of posts these past couple of weeks, but they never turned out how I wanted them. More than anything I want this blog to be a documentation of my life, a place I can look back and see how the Lord has worked, not neccessarily just a place to "teach". But as you may figure, I gotta go through some life before I document it haha.

There's been some hills, there's been some valleys, but if there is anything I've learned is that in God's eyes there are no insignificances.

F I F T E E N

15.
I am officially out of middle school... now that's what I'm talking about!

This past year I have learned SO much, I thought I'd share some of it with you.

1. In God's eyes, your beauty isn't relative.
Beauty is so relative in our world. Beauty doesn't have an official scale or criteria, we judge our beauty by those around us. We create our own criteria and definitions and most of the time that ends up being a list of what you long for. It's easy to say to yourself in the mirror that you're beautiful and then go out in public and see someone fulfill your definition of beauty, the flaws you see in yourself. But what's so cool about God, is that we fulfill every possible definition, every possible combination of beauty there could ever be in His eyes. We check every box.

That is the only thing that sustains my confidence in this world of comparison.

A Slave to My Weaknesses

I am a girl who could stay in her bedroom for days on end and never get bored.

I am that girl in her ELA class where even though the teacher says to not read off of the slides during presentations she does anyway.

And the girl that conquered her fear of public speaking at Fields of Faith.

Stepping Stones


My Biology teacher loves to use metaphors and one specifically she told me I'll never forget.

She said, "Our genetics are like a textbook. We don't want all of our cellular potential (chromosomes) all at once (closed textbook). If that were the case, then we would be 25 with not only all of our baby fat but also grey hair (at the same time). We want our textbook of genetics to be flipped to a certain chapter at a certain time, so when we are little we have baby fat, and when we get deeper into the book we have grey hair."

Blind Sided (Vlog)

Hello everyone!

So the other day, I just decided to go for it and make my first (Jesus) YouTube video!

I think it's time to step away from my comfort zone a little bit and make an actual video blog post. I absolutely love writing like way more than video, but I know if I am going to get anywhere I gotta learn how to talk to people (on camera and off) :)
