My “Little” Pandemic Friend 🤗

A delight to highlight my little sister in the faith, Catherine. Our first meeting was during this 2020 pandemic at a Chick-fil-A drive-thru a few miles from my house! It was her pleasure to serve me and my pleasure to meet her 😍. Catherine’s parents are from South Korea, but she and her older sister…

Beautiful Bella

Delighted to highlight Bella who lives in the small town of Fairview, Pennsylvania by Lake Erie, my hometown 🙆‍♀️. I met Bella in a homeschool co-op eight years ago when our family was beginning our homeschool adventure. I had the opportunity to be a helper in her art class. Bella is so gracious to share…

More than Apple

What are you worth? If you asked most people they would look at your clothes, your house, your car, your bling, your friends, and yes, even your phone to determine what they think you’re worth. If you look at the world’s standards for measuring worth, you’d say I’m not worth very much. You see, I…

Lovely Lauren

I met Lauren the first year I volunteered to help with my church’s middle school students. She was a shy and quiet 6th grader in our small group who has matured into a lovely high school sophomore 🤗. Here’s a snapshot of Lauren’s story. Her mom was born in Florida and her dad in Kentucky….

Birthday Girl 🤗

Today I have the honor of highlighting a young friend from my 6th grade group at church. We met in the fall of 2019 and I’ve enjoyed getting to know her 🤗. Kayla celebrated a Birthday 🎉🎁🎈🎂 this week and here are some fun and interesting ways God made her unique (in her own words…

Do Love Yourself

This one’s tough for me. I’ve always had a hard time loving myself. I don’t really know why. I guess it’s because I didn’t feel worthy to be loved. It seemed I always missed the mark. I was just a little off on everything. A slow learner by design, I was not creative, witty, or…

Know Your True Worth

True worth can’t be seen, measured, or bought. It’s why popularity, status, titles, achievements, riches, and stuff still leave us striving for more. True worth comes from what God knows about you and not what people think of you. True worth is decided by God, your Designer. It is not determined by how much you’ve…

The Labels We Wear

I grew up in the era of Jordache jeans and Adidas sneaks. Think Gap and Nike. I owned neither because they were too expensive. I would’ve given anything to have even one pair, but the closest I came to them were seeing them on kids at school 🤷‍♀️. Labels are important to a young girl…

Mirror Mirror, I Don’t Like What I See

Ok, so this isn’t me in the mirror but this is my shadow/profile 😁. As warped as it looks, it isn’t far from how I see myself. You see, I have a pretty distorted view of myself. The image I see in the physical mirror and the mirror in my mind is often not what…

When You’re Too Much Yet Not Enough

I feel this way more often than not. It’s as if there are 2 personalities wrestling inside of me. One feels she is too much. The other thinks she is not enough. I think I’m too much of the undesirable and not enough of the desirable. Too much of who I don’t want to be…
