The Post Your Glow Up Challenge 

I was called everything but a child of God…skinny, little, flat chested, no booty, anorexic, and my personal favorite…a stick. Kids can be so cruel. I look back at the younger photo of me and I can laugh, but at the same time I was happy. I may have looked a mess, but every article of clothing I had on was grateful! While my mom and dad wasnt in my life, people stepped in and took care of me! They bought me things that helped boosted my SELF-esteem. To others I could’ve been the butt of many jokes, but I was really appreciative of what people did for me. I never thought I wasn’t pretty, but I always wished to look my age like other girls. In today’s time, cruel words are sending these kids straight on a suicide mission. Just because someone does not look like you, it does not give you the right to shame them. You never know what somebody is going through!

Even now, I don’t like people looking at me (why public speaking & singing makes me uncomfortable), being around a lot of people gives me anxiety (why I tend to stay to myself), hearing other people talk about people gives me anxiety (why my friends are the sweetest), and I don’t like being the center of attention ( number one reason I didn’t want a wedding).

Be careful with your words! They can give life, or they can give death!

 

 

Have You Experienced God’s Faithfulness? 

Faithful Chics Boutique Godfident T-ShirtLet’s talk about God’s faithfulness for a moment….

So yesterday was Easter right, and I was sitting at church really just thinking about how much God has done for me. I was thinking about the love that Jesus showed a dying world when he gave his life for us. I was thinking about all the times God could have given up on me, and all the times I could’ve died way too early. I thought about all of God’s promises and how he has never let me down. I thought about all the times I didn’t tithe right, but he still provided for me. I can’t name everything, because God has done so many things for me!

Hubby’s Birthday – DIY Love Coupons

 

img_8338Today my husband turns a year older, and I am so excited!! Call me crazy, but I am excited to grow older with him! We met when we were 12, and now we are both 27. I have known, have loved, and have gone crazy over him for over half of my life now!

He is not really big on celebrating his birthday, but deep down inside I know he really wants to  feel special on his special day. I am the same way! I say I don’t really care about my birthday, but deep down I kinda do. When you have gone most of your life with it just been another day, you just kind of expect that moving forward…but if someone makes you feel special – that is just even better! Continue reading

A little Hope Can Save a Life (or a Fish)

It’s Story Time!!

Everyone, meet Teddy! Teddy was a birthday gift to Trinity from her Teddy Bear (God-Dad). Teddy is a Beta fish, and as far as I know a very “low” maintenance pet. 

Well I was wrong! First off, Trinity NEVER feeds him. So I bet you think I feed the fish, right? WRONG! Poor fish. Teddy has gone days at a time without eating his little Beta food.
