Sweet Mia

It’s been a minute, I know 🤷‍♀️. School has consumed much of my days the past month. But I’m happy to share one more summer highlight as we look forward to fall 🤗. Say hey to my sweet little friend, Mia 🙂. I have the pleasure of being Mia’s seventh grade leader at church. We…

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…

Imani (Faith) Bê

It’s my pleasure to highlight Imani Bê (her late grandma’s name) Bell this week 🤗. She is my beautiful niece😍! I held her at just two weeks old! Look at her now. She has blossomed into a pretty tween 😘. Like her mom, my baby sister, Imani is artistic and enjoys drawing. Her favorite subject…

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…

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…

More Than a Number

I was doing fine until I saw the numbers. I knew I shouldn’t have gone there. But I did. You see, I had stepped onto the little balancing instrument which measures my worth. I gasped and strained my eyes to make sure I was seeing the right numbers. They were a smidget higher than I…

Why I Ditched the Daisy Dukes

Oh yeah, I owned some daisy dukes back in the day 🙄. I admit, it did feel good to fit in them. Especially after I lost the freshman 20 from college. Back then you wouldn’t have found modesty in my closet because I didn’t think it was important. Many will say it’s my prerogative what…

Overcoming the Pain of Rejection

It doesn’t matter who or how many reject you. God sees you. He accepts you as you are. He says you are worthy even when people toss you aside. Rejection hurts. It’s a wound you can carry with you all your life, causing you to think untrue things about yourself. Rejection makes you feel unwanted…
