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…

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…

Imani (Faith) Bê

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….

Rachel is from Newnan, GA although her dad is from Minnesota and her mom is from Indiana. She is a shift supervisor and certified barista trainer at Starbucks 🙆‍♀️😍. Presently, Rachel is waiting…

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…

Born the Wrong Color

As a first generation refugee, I grew up wanting to be American. So many times, I believed I was born the wrong color because it was just so hard being my color. My little heart understood it was a disadvantage to be in the minority because I was treated less than based on my ethnicity…

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…
