  • Dear Girl, You Are Loved

    Dear girl, You are so loved. Regardless of the names people have called you, where you come from or what you’ve been through. You are accepted, adored and valued beyond compare.  Stop wishing you were someone else, stop thinking you’re not good enough, pretty enough, popular enough. Listen to me – You are enough! Not because you are “perfect” […]

  • How you can stop wanting to be ‘her’

    Almost from birth, I think little girls are prone to competing and comparing with one another; they battle to be the prettiest, the smartest, the sweetest, the fastest. Not much changes over time. Women still feel the need to constantly look sideways and compare themselves to the girl-next-door. This time it’s bodies, babies, husbands & […]

  • The garment of patience

    I’m a summer girl. I like dresses, I like bikinis, I like skirts, shorts and little tops.

  • Dressed in…….

    My usual attire is jeans and t-shirt or sweater. I am a simple gal. I wear no make up (because when I do I look just like me, except with makeup, and after all the fuss and bother of putting it on, I want more or different). My greying hair is going to continue on that route. […]

  • Be yourself… everyone else is taken!

    Be Who You Is – If You Ain’t Who You Is – You Is Who You Ain’t.  Or, Be yourself; everyone else is taken. There’s lots of cute ways to say it, but the message is… be yourself…the challenging part is to figure out who that is. Even at age 53 ¾ I drift on […]

  • Just a little something…

    You’ve heard the phrase or maybe used the phrase yourself, “Oh, It’s just a little something I threw together”!   Have you ever been complimented on something you cooked or a craft you made or even an outfit that you put together and been told you look great in it?  How did you respond?  Have […]

  • Breaking free from insecurities…

    The applause left me speechless. The crowd was cheering so loud, yet still above all the noise I could hear his hushed whisper as he leaned into the microphone and spoke the words I had been longing to hear, “I love you. Will you marry me?” My head was spinning, my knees felt weak, my […]

  • When looking for the light…

    Life in today’s society is harder than it has ever been. Now in my late twenties I find it very hard to find the path that God has for me. As many young people today all ask that same question. What should I do with my life? I think that is the hardest question in […]
