#unpaintedgirls

#unpaintedgirls

A lot of us teen girls hide behind our makeup. My best friend decided that in 2019 she wants to be #unpaintedgirls

#unpaintedgirls means that she won’t be wearing any makeup except for special occasions like dances. Even then she won’t be wearing a ton.

I am going to join her in this exciting challenge. My friend and I hope that you guys will join us!

Post a picture of your beautiful face without makeup on social media with the hashtag #unpaintedgirls. Let’s see how many pictures can be posted before midnight on December 31st!

The Struggle Is Real

The Struggle Is Real

Lately I have been struggling with how to get my blog out there. I feel like no one is listening, like maybe what I have to say is not that important and that I maybe am not as special as I thought. Maybe I am just a normal girl trying to do something impossible by starting this blog and thinking that people will want to read something so simple, so real.

I was in the shower when the lyrics to a song called “Tiny Voice” came into my mind. I realized that I am special and I do have something worth sharing.

“Tiny Voice”

Are you listening
Or are you looking away
I’ve been waiting
For a chance to say

My unsaid opinion
That’s never made a sound
But if you’ll let me let it out

This tiny voice, it may not be perfect
But I know that it’s got some good things to say
A tiny voice, humble and quiet
Don’t turn away from a tiny voice

Within the static
It’s drowning in the loud
It’s so easy
To tune it out

The more you overlook it
And miss it day by day
It’s slowly disappearing
Don’t let it fade away

This tiny voice, it may not be perfect
But I know that it’s got some good things to say
This tiny voice, humble and quiet
Don’t turn away from a tiny voice

I know I’m not done now
I’m letting it stand out
A bit at a time
This tiny voice
And who would’ve figured
That I could grow bigger
Louder and stronger until you can hear

This tiny voice
It’s got some good things to say
This tiny voice, humble and quiet
Don’t turn away
Don’t turn away from a tiny voice
Hear my voice

I just want to thank Lexi Walker for writing this song. I have always loved this song but now this song means even more to me.

Sentimental About The Holidays

Sentimental About The Holidays

 

Hey everyone! Right now my dad and my younger siblings are setting up the Christmas train and tree at my grandparents house.

I have been feeling pretty sentimental about the holiday season for about a month now. It really is the most wonderful time of the year.

I love how the air is crisp and cold and how everyone makes a special effort to be kind to one another. During this holiday season we are able to see family and build and strengthen relationships.

This year we are doing a homemade Christmas. We will be giving each other homemade gifts! I am so excited to see the reactions to the gifts that I have been planning.

I hope that we can all remember and cherish the feelings that we have during this holiday season and not get too caught up in getting gifts and even giving gifts.

Happy December + Day 1 of #lighttheworld

Happy December + Day 1 of #lighttheworld

Hey all! Guess what month it is! That’s right it’s December.

The Holiday Season is my favorite time of year! I love how there is so much joy during this time of year. I also enjoy listening to Christmas music and wrapping gifts for my friends and family. My favorite part of December is #lighttheworld.

#lighttheworld is where you do something for someone else every week leading up to Christmas. I want you all to join me with #lighttheworld. Today is the start of the first week. The challenge is to help someone in another part of the world. Comment below on how it goes!

A Special Thank You

A Special Thank You

13 years ago I was adopted from a baby home in Tanzania, Africa. A man and his wife ran this baby home. At the time they were caring for babies from age 0 to 2. I lived with them for around 6 months.  I called them mom and dad. Since being adopted I haven’t been able to go back.

Today I found out that the man that ran this home passed away. I just want to thank him and is wife for what they did for me. Without them I can’t imagine where I would be at this moment.  Although I can’t be with them during this time of grief my heart and prayers go out to the Church family.

The Cradle of Love Baby Home is always in need of financial and supply donations as well as volunteers.  If you’re reading this and have the ability to help please click on the link below.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Hello everyone! Today is thanksgiving and I just wanted to say how grateful I am for being able to have this blog.

This blog has helped me express myself and share what I feel is important. When I started writing it came easier than I thought it would. This blog has helped me start to find who I am.

I hope that we all remember to not only be grateful today but be grateful everyday.
