: No girl talk here. Its all about the pep talk. Last night was girls night out which consisted of pep talks, mimi’s cafe, baking, making up silly songs and Jesus talk. Sometimes these nights are just really needed to get back on track. Knowing that I not only have awesome best friends, but I also have them as sister’s in Christ who edify each other with the word of God and prayer. Thank you Lord for these girls whom I strive to grow closer with everyday.
: I’ve held it together for four months without crying over my best friend leaving to another country and tonight was the night I broke. Crying over skype is never fun, but thank God I only have to wait three more months. These are the times I hate being a girl because I just don’t cry.
: This morning I woke up to a text that went like this “Today’s forecast: God reigns and the Son shines:)” now this may be cheesy and cliche, but a great reminder that its truth. I love my girls because all of them are so encouraging and edifying.
: Tonight has got to be one of the best nights. Not only did I get to go to youth group for the first time in a while, but I got to see my grand friend Collin Mayjack and spend wonderful time with my lovely leader Sara Taylor. Not ONLY did all this happen but we also had a worship night which stokes me out. After all this I get a call from Invisible Children which is was from my grandest friend Andrew Nguyen who now works as a roadie at Invisible Children. When I got home I sat down to ask for donations from people personally on facebook and let me tell you it was insanely stressful, but utterly awesome. I got so many people to donate and it gave me a rad opportunity to talk to people I haven’t talked to in years. I had one person tell me that I can accomplish anything, including being a roadie for IC and start my own coffee shop, because I’m so ambitious and do everything I set out to do. I had another person say they are so proud to see that God is working so much in this organization and me that it compels them to give. I had another person tell me I was a hippie which was great because then they donated. And lastly I had someone say that the world needed more passionate people. Honestly I don’t care about all these compliments what I care about is every single one of these people said yes they would donate because God compelled them. God is so rad and He provides all. He has given me this passion and the words to speak and I want to share it with the world. People need to realize that our words are so precious. We need to use our words to glorify Him. All I can say is that I am insanely stoked on God. I am insanely stoked on Invisible Children. I am insanely stoked on Friends. And I am insanely stoked with the fact that we’ve raised 1.7 million. Sure it isn’t 2 million, but we’ll get there. I appreciate people and I appreciate justice. Thank you to all of you who have helped and supported Invisible Children. You will never know how deeply I appreciate you and your love.
: If every great story has struggles and pains why not go for it? Why not live boldly and uncomfortably? Why not trust God with all our hearts so that our great story points to Him? In the end our story will be bold and great because it will be Glorifying to God.
: I once was told these words “It was as if the first time we met we saw into each other’s souls and they intertwined like branches, We have something special. We very much do.” by someone great. I really do love my friends. It is people like this that bless me on a daily basis and make my heart so happy. Praise God.
Though I can admit that I’ve learned a few things over this semester I must say that I absolutely detest everything that did not in fact matter. Needless to say you frustrate me and give me a headache. It has been real and not really that fun now its time to just finish this semester so I can be rid of you.
