    I’m Getting Married!?

    The Big News I have some news. Many of you may not be surprised by this announcement if you follow me on Instagram. However, since all of you lovely readers and followers are like family to me, I wanted to announce this formally on my blog. Eleven months ago, I met a wonderful man named Owen who decided to pursue me. We’ve been dating and building a loving relationship that’s centered on Jesus Christ. On April 7th 2018, Owen asked me to marry him. And I said yes! We took this selfie shortly after Owen proposed. Of course, we were in Target. Isn’t that where every newly engaged couple goes?…

    Should Christians Wear Makeup?

    This one goes out to all my Christian ladies who like makeup. Many of you have probably wondered at some point if it is appropriate for a Christian to wear makeup. I’ve heard many opinions–ranging from no way–to go for it! I love makeup. I’m not super talented at applying it, but I will say that I can rock a good cat eye. Of course, I’ve wondered about God’s opinion on makeup and how it fits in a Biblical view of modesty. Let’s turn to God’s Word, which should be the ultimate authority on the decisions we make as Christians.  For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man…

    FirstFruits~Mirrors of Faith

    Hello lovely readers and followers! Welcome to Part 4 of the FirstFruits series, which is the last part of our adventure together in James 1. Recently I went to a youth convention with the youth group I help lead. It was awesome–over a thousand students worshiping Jesus together and hearing some powerful preaching! It really made an impact on my life as well. One of the speakers who preached (I don’t know why I didn’t write down his name) said something that really inspired me, and I think it goes really well with today’s post. Are we going to spend our life looking in a mirror or walking out the…

    FirstFruits~What Are You Pursuing?

    Hello lovely readers and followers! Welcome to Part 2 of the FirstFruits series, where we explore the concepts of James 1. What runs your life? That is the question James asks his fellow believers in verse 11. For no sooner has the sun risen with a burning heat than it withers the grass; its flower falls, and its beautiful appearance perishes. So the rich man also will fade away in his pursuits (James 1:11 NKJV). A lot of people think that James is condemning all rich people, and that it is evil to have money. That’s not true, as sin affects us all no matter if we are rich or…

    How to Style~Duster Cardigans

    Hello lovely readers and followers! Happy Fashion Saturday! Say what?? What happened to Friday? Well, I came down with a virus this week that kind of knocked me out. Good news is I think I’m on the mend, and now I am honored to be a part of your weekend! Today’s collage is about duster cardigans. I have one in burgundy (big surprise lol), and I absolutely love it! It’s very 90’s fall chic. Dusters are cardigans that go below the knee. They are warm, cozy, and very classy. I chose a gray one for this collage because it’s such a gorgeous neutral. It complements any hair color or skin tone. Since…
