Philippines Medical Missions Trip

Hello family & friends!

Hope all is well and that the Lord has done incredible things in your lives this year! 2015 has certainly been an exciting time for Jesse and I both. We graduated together with our Bachelor’s degree from Liberty University and also got to go on the trip of a lifetime to Alaska for a dear friend’s wedding! Now, we are anxiously awaiting for January 7th to leave for a medical missions trip to the Philippines!

The Lord has opened up an incredible opportunity for us to serve and Jesse and I couldn’t be more excited to take part in it! Our medical missions team has been officially invited by the provincial governor to perform dental surgeries to the village of the Ifugao people in Manila, focused mainly on fixing cleft palates. These people live high in the mountains and have scarce access to medical care. Dr. Zapanta, the doctor we are traveling with, is a family friend who has been going to the same place for over 10 years now to provide medical relief to these people in the name of Christ. The team will comprise of physicians, surgeons, and dentists in order to bring medical care to those in need. And though I obviously have no medical experience, I have been invited to help test people’s hearing instead! Whereas Jesse will actually be able to perform dental extractions as he practices his intended future career in dentistry! It has been Jesse’s vision to become a missionary dentist since he started college and he would like to one day accomplish what Dr. Zapanta and his colleagues are doing with this ministry. Through much prayer, Jesse does feel that dentistry is his calling in life and is extremely excited for this opportunity to put his passions into practice before attending dental school.

Also, while we are there, we will be visiting our mom’s side of the family that we haven’t seen in years. We will be paying for this portion of the trip with our own funds though. But please keep us in your prayers for this visit as well because last time I went in 2012, I was able to
share the Gospel in front of hundreds of people there!

All that being said, the total cost of the trip for us both is around $2800 .  As of now we are down to the last $600 needing to be raised. So, if you would like to help us out by donating, even a small amount would be immensely appreciated and will be a huge blessing for us and the Ifugao people! Either way, we would appreciate your prayers!

You can donate through my Cash App ($hmyers10) or by using GoFundMe: https://www.gofundme.com/HannahJesseMyers

Thank you so much!

Much love,
Hannah & Jesse Myers

Taking Your Own Advice

You know what’s easy?

Giving people advice. 

You know what’s easier?

Not taking your own advice. 

Yep. Guilty as charged.

Gosh, it’s pathetic how many times I’ve taken pride in giving “good advice”, while I sit there hypocritically worrying about my own future and doubting whether or not God will actually answer my prayers.

It’s so EASY for me to just tell someone else who is struggling to just trust God.

You’ll hear me time and time again saying these words:

Just trust Him. God has a plan. He’s Sovereign. He’s got you covered. Just keep following His will and it will all work together for good in the end. 

But yet, as I sit here writing this blog in my last semester of college, the unknown of next year has got me really worked up. I literally have no idea where I’ll be, not to mention what country I will be in, and I am no closer to deciding what I want to do with my life than I was a year ago… I could be doing my masters, or I could go to the Philippines to see my family. I could be working here in the U.S., or I could go teach English overseas for a gap year. I could apply for an internship with Samaritan’s Purse, or I could be on the World Race! So many awesome opportunities, yes. But so frustrating because I can’t decide which one to pick. I feel like I’m all over the place, changing my mind almost daily.

What’s frustrating is the fact I intellectually know that no matter what path I pick, the Lord is going to use it for good – but in my heart I’m worried about choosing the wrong path –  Or a path that is “less prestigious” in other people’s eyes.

But of course… that’s the problem right there.

P – R – I – D – E

Oh my precious pride.

My pride is what hinders me from taking my own advice. From fulling trusting God. From fully submitting to His will. And from tuning out the other voices in my head that hinder me from listening to God’s voice.

C. S. Lewis nailed this concept in his book Mere Christianity. 

 “As long as you are proud you cannot know God. A proud man is always looking down on things and people: and, of course, as long as you are looking down you cannot see something that is above you.”

BOOM.

Pride is the reason I question God’s sovereignty and His plan for my future.

Pride is the reason why I have no problem giving advice to other people while ignoring my own words.

Pride is why I’m struggling to make a decision.

And pride is what’s keeping me from experiencing all that God has in store for me.

Because if I wasn’t proud, I would be able to commit to something and then leave the rest up to Him.

If I wasn’t proud, I wouldn’t actually think that I could mess up God’s plans.

This verse says it all:

Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand. – Proverbs 19:21 

So no. I don’t know where I will be after graduation, and I don’t know what I’m ultimately doing with my life.

But I’ve finally accepted the fact that it’s OKAY.

Because I know that God truly IS in control and his purpose WILL stand – despite all my flaws and failures.

 He has demonstrated that to me time and time again, yet I still doubt Him.

But it’s finally time for me to take my own advice and TRUST GOD.

My future is safe in His hands.

Don’t judge a book by its cover or a couple by their Instagram

This blog was such a blessing to me, I hope it’ll encourage you all as well!

This weekend Jackson and I got our engagement pictures taken, and we couldn’t be happier with them. They embody everything an engaged couple is supposed to be. You know, just a couple of high school sweet-hearts, blissfully staring into each other’s eyes and perfectly in love. Because that’s how engaged couples are supposed to be, ESPECIALLY if both people love Jesus. Couples who love Jesus never fight, right? RIGHT?

Maybe you’re engaged, and you’re like “Blissful. Joyful. Eye Staring. Perfectly in love. Yeah that’s us all the time, you nailed it”. Maybe you never argue or say things you don’t mean or selfishly demand change out of the other person. If that’s you, then please, share your secrets with me,  would ya?

But until then, I’ll keep writing this blog about just how imperfect Jackson and I’s relationship is. In fact, you should know that a mere three hours before…

Is Bill Maher Right? || Christian Hypocrisy

Reposting from Tim Biden:

“I just watched a video by Bill Maher where he was absolutely going off about Christian hypocrisy. And I hate to admit it but he was absolutely right.

Careful… Video contains a few profane words. The transcription follows, with the profanity edited, if you prefer to read it.

For almost 2,000 years, Christians have been lawyering the Bible to try and figure out how “love thy neighbor” can mean “hate thy neighbor” and how “turn the other cheek” can mean “screw you, I’m buying space lasers.”

Martin Luther King gets to call himself a Christian because he actually practiced loving his enemies. And Gandhi was so effing Christian he was Hindu.

But if you rejoice in revenge, torture and war – hey, that’s why they call it the weekend – you cannot say you’re a follower of the guy who explicitly said, “Love your enemies” and “Do good to those who hate you.” The next line isn’t “and if that doesn’t work, send a titanium fanged dog to rip his nuts off.”

Jesus lays on that hippie stuff pretty thick. He has lines like, “Do not repay evil with evil,” and “Do not take revenge on someone who wrongs you.” Really. It’s in that book you hold up when you scream at gay people.

And not to put too fine a point on it, but nonviolence was kind of Jesus’ trademark, kind of his big thing. To not follow that part of it is like joining Greenpeace and hating whales. There’s interpreting, and then there’s just ignoring.

It’s just ignoring if you’re for torture – as are more evangelical Christians than any other religion. You’re supposed to look at that figure of Christ on the cross and think, “how could a man suffer like that and forgive?” Not, “Romans are wusses, he still has his eyes.”

If you go to a baptism and hold the baby under until he starts talking, you’re missing the message. Like, apparently, our president, who says he gets scripture on his Blackberry first thing every morning, but who said on 60 Minutes that anyone who would question that Bin Laden didn’t deserve an assassination should, “have their head examined.” Hey Fox News! You missed a big headline; Obama thinks Jesus is nuts!

To which I say, “hallelujah,” because my favorite new government program is surprising violent religious zealots in the middle of the night and shooting them in the face. Sorry Head Start, you’re number 2 now.

But I can say that because I’m a non-Christian. Just like most Christians. Christians, I know, I’m sorry. I know you hate this and you want to square this circle, but you can’t. I’m not even judging you, I’m just saying logically if you ignore every single thing Jesus commanded you to do, you’re not a Christian – you’re just auditing. You’re not Christ’s followers, you’re just fans.

And if you believe the Earth was given to you to kick ass on while gloating, you’re not really a Christian – you’re a Texan.

After reading that, or even watching the video, how do you feel? Are you angry? Are you apologetic? Do you think “Yeah he’s right. I need to change” or maybe “No, it’s only the other Christians were like that”? Or do you want to scream at him “Screw him! He’s wrong and I’m going to tell him he’s wrong”? If you think any of the above, you’re proving him right. And that’s because he is right.

I’m going to admit that what he said absolutely embarrasses me because he’s right. If he was wrong, I wouldn’t have gotten angry. I would have said something along the lines of “That rant was kind of funny and I’m sorry that’s how you feel.” But the plain and simple truth is that he’s right on every single point.

As Christians we love the part of the Bible that says God loves us. We love the part that says Jesus died for us. What we fail to recognize and appreciate is that he also gave us certain commands. And guess what, Jesus also loves and died for the people that we disagree with and dislike. So stop trying to figure out how “love thy neighbor” can mean “hate thy neighbor”. It’s not what Christ would do.

But if you rejoice in revenge, torture and war…you cannot say you’re a follower of the guy who explicitly said, “Love your enemies” and “Do good to those who hate you.” Again Mr. Maher is right on the money. How are torture, murder, and war doing good to those who hate us? How is that loving your enemies? It isn’t.

“Do not repay evil with evil,” and “Do not take revenge on someone who wrongs you.” Really. It’s in that book you hold up when you scream at gay people. And why do we need to scream at gay people? The only group of people Jesus ever condemned was the religious leaders who were hypocrites and steering his people down the wrong path. In Jesus’s day they were called Pharisees, Sadducees, and Scribes. Today that group would probably be called the religious right, evangelical Christians, and Catholics.

If evangelical Christians supposedly know God’s love, why is it so hard for us to love others? If we really believe that Christ has forgiven us all of our sins, why can’t we forgive the sins of others, especially non-believers? We are not even supposed to judge them. That’s right, I said we are not supposed to judge nonbelievers. And I have biblical proof for it, just read 1Corinthians 5:12 “What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside?” Yes, that even includes gay people. Love them, don’t scream at them.

I’m a non-Christian. Just like most Christians. …if you ignore every single thing Jesus commanded you to do, you’re not a Christian – you’re just auditing. You’re not Christ’s followers, you’re just fans. As Christians too many people focus on God’s grace but ignore his commands. Christ said in John 14:15 “If you love me, you will obey what I command.” So by not following Christ commands are you, in essence, saying you do not love him? Is that something you want to tell God?

Don’t worry, God still grants grace and mercy. I am not denying that. What I am denying is that you can claim to be a follower or disciple of Christ and have such hatred for other people in your heart. James 3:9-15 says “With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be. Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? My brothers, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water. Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, of the devil.”

Some professing Christians may seem to believe that Bill Maher thinks anyone who says they are a Christian, yet doesn’t live their life in lockstep with Jesus, isn’t really a Christian. Get used to it. As Christians we are held to a higher level by the rest of the world because they know what Christ taught. We don’t hold ourselves to a level even close to what they hold us to. And herein lies the problem, we should have higher expectations than they do. But we’ve gotten lazy. We don’t want to work at our faith. We don’t want to love other people. But Jesus called us to and therefor it isn’t optional.

And guess what… Nonbelievers have read the Bible. Nonbelievers know what Jesus said. Nonbelievers know when we are not living up to the faith that we profess. And this is why they call us out on our hypocrisy.

Christ died for our sins and that is no secret. Everyone knows what we say that we believe but, when our actions do not match up with our words, they correctly view us as hypocrites. Luke are in verse 6:42 “How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” A quick paraphrase of what he’s saying is “After you have solved your own issues, then go help someone else with theirs. Don’t think you can fix their problems if you can’t even see your own problems.”

Collossians 3:12-14 says very plainly “…clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.”

Love your neighbor. Love your family. Love nonbelievers of all races, genders, religions, and sexual orientations. Love everybody, no exceptions.”

Struggling with Doubt || Recap of Junior Year

It’s summer once again. Wow.
Not only is it summer, but school starts back up in a month. WHAT?!
Hands down, Junior year was the fastest year of my entire life.
It’s unbelievable.

So, where to even begin?
How can I describe everything that I’ve experienced and learned this past school year?
Well, either way, it has no doubt changed my life.
I’m still trying to figure out the details of everything that’s been going on…
But all I know is that the Lord has stretched me past all levels of my comfort zone.
It hasn’t been fun, certainly not. But yet, at the same time it’s been enjoyable witnessing this period of spiritual growth. I’ve had to cling to the only hope that I have more than ever
— Jesus Christ.

Here’s what he’s been teaching me: I know extremely little about life.
Just about everything I’ve ever believed was true has come crashing down around me.
Whether it be relationships, health, politics, theology, philosophy, or faith.
Nothing is as black and white as I’ve always thought.
There are so many sides to every single argument.
Life just isn’t as simple as I once believed.
Gosh, I have so many questions.

I think I’ve cried more in this past semester than I’ve cried in my entire life combined.
Okay.. well maybe that’s an exaggeration, but still. You get the point. I’ve cried a lot.
Not crying in public was quite the challenge in the last month before school ended.
I didn’t want anyone to ask me what was actually wrong.

Ya know, I’ve never been one to hide my feelings…
But this journey has been different.
The questions I have aren’t ones I can just casually ask my friends.
They don’t have the answers to my questions.
And quite honestly, I just didn’t want them to be burdened by the same doubts I have.
If they aren’t questioning these things,
why plant doubts into their minds that aren’t already there?
I don’t want to “lead anyone astray” in their faith with my questioning.

Or maybe it’s my pride.
I’m supposed to ‘have it all together’, right?
I can’t be the one doubting my faith — no, not me.
I felt like I couldn’t tell anyone.
I had to struggle through this on my own
Pride in it’s clearest form.

See, the position I’m in is a hard one.. I’m expected to act a certain way.
I’m expected to be “on fire for God” all the time..
So what happens when the doubts come in and my sinful self screams
“I DON’T WANT TO DO THIS ANYMORE!”?

If I’m being honest, I don’t feel like following Jesus every second of every day…
No matter how many Bible verses I tweet or statuses I post about Jesus,
it doesn’t mean that I’m immune to the temptations of this world.
I’m a sinful human being who has sinful human desires.
I’m a broken person who is in the process of being made whole…
But I still live in a broken world.

So, overall this year has been the hardest year of my life, but yet one of the most fun.
I’ve certainly been blessed by amazing family and friends who are always so encouraging.
I’ve been able to travel to many new places and have enjoyed awesome new experiences.
Those were the days though that I chose to turn my brain off
and just enjoy the moment while it lasted. It’s always when I’m alone,
when the thoughts come creeping in and the doubts infiltrate my mind.
My brain never stops with the questioning…

“Why God– why, why, why?
Why can’t I understand what you are doing?
How can I trust that you are good?”

But you know, I’ve finally come to the understanding that it’s okay not to know everything…
We can’t possibly know everything. How could we? — We’re finite human beings.
Even if we combined the knowledge of every human being on the planet we would maybe
know the equivalent of a grain of sand compared to the knowledge of the God of the Universe.

So here’s a quote I found encouraging for my situation:
“Those who believe they believe in God but without passion in the heart, without anguish of mind, without uncertainty, without doubt, and even at times without despair, believe only in the idea of God, and not in God himself.”

Elisabeth Elliot also once said,
“Faith does not eliminate questions. But faith knows where to take them.”
So all that being said, I just wanted to encourage anyone out there who is struggling with doubt to take your questions to God. I strongly believe that He reveals truth to the honest seeker.
He’s certainly been answering my questions and humbling me in the process.
You may have to step outside the box and question many things you’ve been taught.
But the answers are there. Keep searching.

Poolside Purity & Bikini Battles

Really thankful for this guy’s perspective on such a controversial topic within the church community. I think there certainly is a balance between his view and some of the comments on the blog.. Overall I do agree. Take a look 🙂

That Preacher Guy

Here we go again. It’s summer time, which means at any given time, in any number of churches nationwide, pastors, youth pastors and leaders are giving their kids (read: their female students) the “one-piece” talk.

A few years back at our church, some students actually petitioned our pastor to include Tankinis. It was a big win for preteens everywhere. I imagine they sat by the pool that summer in their tankinis and drank virgin daiquiris to celebrate.

We have all been there for that dreaded talk. It’s painful for everyone involved and it smacks of legalism. As one student recently said to me, “It just feels like another instance of the old people at church telling people to behave because you’re at church.” It’s absurd, I know. In case you are unfamiliar with the one-piece talk, it goes something like this:

Ok, ladies, it’s summertime, and we’re going to have a…

Teen Indifference Towards Faith in India || Cultivate Internship 2014

 

Behind the scenes work at Life Fellowship Church

It may be premature to form a solid opinion on my ideas of Indian youth; my Cultivate internship team has only been in the county for 6 days! However, we’ve been meeting with the leadership of Life Fellowship Church and have been asking lots of questions.

From listening to the heart of the leaders, I’ve come to the conclusion that the teens here in India are faced with many of the same things that teens are facing in America, but of course, with an Indian culture twist to it.

A key difference here is that India is a shame-based culture. The American worldview is centered more around right vs. wrong, whereas the Indian culture is focused more on honor vs. shame — Everything here revolves around success and what will bring someone’s self/family honor. Therefore, the typical Indian family’s life revolves around their children and their accomplishments. This also means that because parents immensely invest in their children, they expect a future return from them. This worldview creates an immense pressure to succeed. (There’s only two esteemed career paths to choose– either become a doctor or an engineer). This academic pressure has led many teens to feel indifferent towards the church due to perceived lack of real life applicability — How can teens have time to think about other things when their biggest concern in life is to not be a failure in this world?

Another major issue here, just like in the U.S., is that teens are constantly being bombarded with an overload of information — We can thank the internet and social media for this generational problem. So on top of all the information they learn in school every day, they are constantly being exposed to knew ideas on the internet, especially regarding western culture. The last thing that teens want to do is spend their free time learning more at church.

So just like in America, the temptation for parents is to figure out a “quick fix” — What will be the quickest cure for teen indifference towards faith? Often the answer given is “more preaching.” But, in my opinion, teens aren’t in need of more preaching. No, their problems aren’t stemming from a lack of instruction –They’re being preached at constantly in all areas of their lives. What they desperately need though is to be actively listened to. They are crying out to be heard and to be able to share their struggles without feeling the shame that comes with exposing their baggage. This trip has shown me that this is not just a cultural challenge, but a global challenge– One that the older generation, wherever they are in the world, is going to have to come to terms with. Teens want to be heard and listened to, whether they are an American or an Indian. 

The Day I Stopped Asking God For “Clarity”

I needed to read this blog so badly. If you’re struggling with what direction to take in your life, I highly recommend this! 🙂

Forte E Bello

I held my tongue as I listened. It seemed like ages that I waited and then…. nothing came. I stared longer over the cliff, and down at the ocean waves, across the deep, dark, ever-stretching expanse of water. An expanse that has always intrigued me since the first day I dipped my toes into it….Since the first time I walked beside it under the moonlight listening to the waves and thinking about the God who made them.

But here I am 10 years later sitting above the same expanse wondering why the God who made it in all of its enormity couldn’t give me, His beloved daughter, the direction and answers that I feel like I need in one of the most pivotal seasons of my life. If He cares why doesn’t He give me clear direction and certainty? I continued to pray and alternate my words with silence, listening…

Trusting God in my Singleness

holy


So, I’m 20.

I’m a junior in college.
And I’m single.

Pshhh, I’m SO young. What’s the big deal, right?
Well that’s what I’m saying. Agh, but I forgot to tell you. I go to Liberty University.

Yes, if you haven’t heard of it.. it’s the world’s largest Christian University.
It seems like every where you turn people are getting in relationships or getting engaged!
Our joke is to have a “Ring by Spring” lol. But honestly.. it’s not a joke. It’s reality here.

So, I have people frequently ask me if I have a boyfriend or if I’m ‘talking’ to someone.
When I say “no”, a lot of people can’t understand why I haven’t seriously dated anyone by now…? I mean, come on. A university of 10,000+ Christians?… there’s gotta be someone for me here, right?!

Well yes, maybe there is. But timing is everything.
Dating the right person at the wrong time will still end in heartbreak.
So, is the timing actually right for me to be in a relationship while in college?
That is the question.

Here’s how I see it..I just can’t do it all. I’m too busy! We only have so much time in a day.
I can’t grow in my relationship with Christ, do well in school, be involved with ministry, keep up with friends, play/coach soccer, eat, sleep AND have a boyfriend at the same time. Something important in my life would have to give.
Relationships take up a LOT of time.

And another thing is, I don’t know the future.
What if I went through my whole college career dating some guy and we end up breaking up?
How devastating would that be? My precious college years, wasted.. on a guy… when I could’ve been making lifelong friendships. I’ve seen this happen too many times already.

Yes, we do have to take chances in life.. I’m not saying we should put up an emotional wall because of fear. I’m just saying, relationships shouldn’t be a nonchalant game like our society portrays. They should be carefully considered.

See, our society has forgotten that dating was meant for those considering marriage. It’s not supposed to be a game. We forget that people’s hearts are on the line. You give a piece of your heart away to every person you’re involved with that you can never get back.

So, since I have no plans to get married any time soon, why would I seriously date anyone?
And as a Christian, I do take God’s commands about sexual purity very seriously.
Having a boyfriend though would only put myself in sexual temptation.

What, am I supposed to just date someone for… 5 years? And not want to be sexually intimate? Ha, yeah right. Not possible, for me at least… I know people though who have dated throughout the years and have kept their purity. I have mad respect for them. But that’s why Liberty students get engaged so early. They’re either getting engaged during school or right after they graduate because you can only date for so long without being sexually intimate! Let’s face it. God created us to desire sexual intimacy with the person we love. It’s no secret. Within the context of marriage.. sex is a beautiful creation from God
and we shouldn’t be ashamed of it!

But there’s just no way that I want to be tied down by marriage any time soon.
I have too much life to live, too many things I want to accomplish before I settle down.
And yes, though I do get lonely sometimes and occasionally think I could handle having a boyfriend.. reality kicks in and God says, “WAIT, the timing isn’t right yet.”

Now, I’m not saying I don’t go on dates. There’s a big difference.
I think that it’s perfectly fine to figure out what you’re looking for in a significant other by going on casual dates. But committing myself to an exclusive relationship right now wouldn’t be my wisest decision.

“Do not awaken or excite love until it is ready” – Song of Solomon 2:7

So am I ready? Definitely not.
However, it’s taken me this long to realize that.
used to think I was ready. But God has been showing me so many things that I need
to work on before I get into any sort of relationship.

My goal is to be a blessing to my future boyfriend, whether we end up married or not.
I want to be an encouragement to whoever God places in my life, not a burden.
I don’t want to bring personal baggage from my past into a relationship that I haven’t tried to work through on my own. No matter who it is, I want to push that person closer to the foot of the Cross.

So, I’ve realized that for me personally, these precious college years are for healing and growing closer to the Lord. This time in my life is to figure out who I am and what God is calling me to do in the future. All I know is that God is doing a work in me that I can’t fully understand right now. I wouldn’t be where I am today spiritually if I continued going down the same path of dating guy after guy like I did in high school.

I’ve finally learned to be content in whatever season the Lord has me in.
If I’m single, GREAT. If I eventually get in a relationship, GREAT.
I know that where ever God has me is exactly where I need to be.

So despite the pressures all around me..
I’m finally at peace with trusting God’s timing and allowing him to write my love story.

Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he WILL make straight your paths. – Proverbs 3:5-6

————————————————————————————————————————————-Disclaimer: In no way am I implying that all Christians who are dating in college are out of “God’s Will”.. this blog is about what God has been personally showing me. God’s timing in every person’s life is different. This post was written to hopefully help others seek God’s perfect timing in their own lives.

The Anatomy of a Godly Girlfriend (Part 2)

Though I don’t have a boyfriend, this blog was super helpful. I highly recommend reading it.. especially if you’re in a more serious dating relationship! 🙂

From Ashes to Beauty

Isn’t my man such a stud? ^^^ I am one lucky girl.
