Time Keeps Moving

Wow! It's been at least two years since I actually posted on here... Time flies! To be honest I totally forgot that this page existed. Reading some of my older posts makes me realize that I have matured quite a bit over these last two years... My life has changed SO much. I don't really even know what to write. In fact, I'm not even sure anyone reads this page. I could just be writing to myself... Which is weird. And pointless. If you read this shoot me a comment so I know who actually uses Blogspot.

Soooooo... I guess if anyone is interested in knowing, I am going on a mission trip to Honduras this summer. I AM SO EXCITED! You're probably thinking... "What? Is she nuts? Excited to leave the country and go work for a solid week?!" My response would be: Yes, I am nuts. If you know me, you already know that ;) Yes, I am excited to work for a week straight. Because I'm not working for me. I'm working for God. If I allow him to work through me, so much more than just "work" will be accomplished. (I Cor. 15:58)

Preparing for this trip is teaching me a lot about trust... trust in God to be exact. The cost is $1,600 just for me. My mom is also going which is another 1,600 smackaroonies. For those of you who have trouble with math, (like me) that's $3,200. I have to pay at least $1,000 by the end of April. Right now, I have $9 to my name (thanks Tyler). That makes me nervous... HOWEVER, I know that if God really wants me to go on this trip, He will provide. 

That's the latest chapter in my story! Prayers are most appreciated! If you feel led to give so I can go on this trip, email me at

Have a blessed day!

Do I Have Time For This? Not Really.

So, I haven't posted in a while. Because I don't really have time for this. Anymore it seems like I don't have much time at all. My life gets more and more busy as the days pass. . . My February is pretty much full already and it's only the 6th.. wow. Enough about that.

In the midst of all this chaos, there are some pretty awesome opportunities for me and my music. A friend of a friend heard my voice and wants me to open for her gig! That might not seem like a big deal to some, but for me, this is stinking awesome. It'll be my first "real gig". And even though I only get to sing one song, one song is all I need to blow them away. :) I'll be singing a song that I wrote, which is way better than any cover I could do, but only because it's coming from my heart. I could do a cover, but it wouldn't be completely mine, only partially. The music I write always seems to speak way better than any words I could ever come up with. Sometimes I may be speechless, but even when I am, God speaks. The times when I have absolutely nothing to say and only tears come, that's when the songs come to me. Or the times when I'm so happy I can't hold in my excitement, another song comes. I know that songs are just words put to music.. But somehow the music is what makes the difference. I guess what I'm trying to say is.. When my words fail, God speaks through me with music.

I am so SO very thankful for my little brother. He is the sweetest boy in the whole world. I love him so much :)

Shoes. I am thankful for shoes. Especially TOMS, they're awesome.

I'm thankful for gentle reminders from God. Just little things that remind me He's watching out for me.

I am thankful for books. :)

Coats. This weather is reminding me how much I need them.

I'm thankful for caring people. It's nice to know someone actually cares about your situation and wants to help.

I am thankful for sleepovers. Sometimes a movie and some girl time is just what I need. :)

6 Things To Be Thankful For.

Homeschool. I am so thankful for homeschool. Whoever invented it, you are a genius.

Bible Quizzing. This is my fourth year of Bible Quizzing and I love it. I get to make new friends, compete, and hide God's Word in my heart. :)

I am thankful for my guitar. It's been through a lot and I haven't even had it a year yet. If I'm feeling low, all I have to do is pick up my guitar and play for a while, maybe write a song, and I feel a ton better.

I'm also thankful for my best friend in the whole world, Erin. You are the best friend I have ever had. Even though you have to move away, you'll always be in my heart. I love you. :) And you better e-mail me & stuff! I'm gonna miss you like crazy.

My youth group. I'm extremely thankful for you guys. You're my second family. Love y'all (and yes, I did say y'all).

School work. That's right, I said it. I'm thankful for school work. I am so blessed to have the opportunity to get an education. Some people never get the chance.

I. Am. Thankful.

I'm so, SO thankful for God's protection. We've been having earthquakes and tornadoes lately, but God has protected us and all of our belongings :).

I'm thankful for talents. God has given everyone a different talent, no matter what it is, you have that talent for a reason. I hope you allow God to use it, considering He's the one who gave it to you.

Today I Am Thankful For...

I am so very thankful for my grandma. I don't know what I would do without her. She is the best example of a Christian I have ever seen. I am so blessed to have her in my life, and I'm so glad God has blessed her with a long life. She will be 87 this January and she's still going strong! I love you so much grandma. :)
