College, here I come

life would be easier w arrows, but instead its a series of red lights and green ones without yellow warnings:  

Psalm 37:23 -The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord; and He delighted in His way. 

 Some of you may already know this but I thought I'd tell all of you the exciting yet scary news. I leave for college this Monday! Only four more days till I leave. I can't believe how fast the summer has gone by! I will be attending Baptist College of Ministry in Menominee Falls, WI. I'll be starting this new college life 8 1/2 hours away from my dear Kentucky home. I will miss it here so much.

  I decided to go for an Associates degree in Elementary Education. I'm so excited to see how the Lord will use me and direct me this Fall. I'd really appreciate if you all kept me in your prayers. This will be a HUGE adjustment for me. Hopefully I'll have some time to update you all and post here on the blog.

  The Lord has blessed me so much these last few months. It's amazing how he's provided for me. He gave me an awesome job as a Vet Tech at a Vet Clinic close to where I live, and He has performed countless miracles that have made it possible for me to attend BCM. I've never felt so sure that I was doing God's Will in all my life. I encourage you all to keep following the Lord's path for your life! He will lead you and guide you to a wonderful future.

 Point your arrow to God and don't ever turn back

Little Eyes

1 Timothy 4:12 - Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

When I was younger I remember always looking up to the older teenage girl. I remember thinking to myself, “I wonder if I’ll be like her when I’m older.” or “I hope I become as pretty as she is.” or the one that I often thought the most, “I wish she didn’t ignore me. I wish she’d talk to me. I wish she’d be my friend.” Kids and young teens are looking for role models. They’re looking for encouragement - they’re looking for someone who they can follow. You see, we all have people watching us. Every new generation is a direct product of the generation before them. We affect those younger than us. You have the chance to change a young person’s life- for the good or the bad. Or you can be like most young people of today - you won’t impact them at all.

 So many of us older teens and young adults get so caught up investing in our own lives that we forget to invest in other people’s lives as well. We need to strive to be prime examples for those following behind us. We need to reach out to those younger than us. Don’t overlook them, don’t push them aside. Those kids are our next teachers, preachers, doctors, or missionaries. They all have an incredible future ahead of them - and we have the opportunity to be a part of that future. Remember when you were young. How you just wanted someone to talk to you- to make you feel special. Be the girl who makes everyone feel welcome and loved - be the girl who encourages the younger to follow God and give their lives to Him. Be an example.

Here are 5 things kids notice about us that we may often forget.

  1. The way we dress
Younger girls are always looking at how the older girls dress. A few weeks ago I was wearing a dress on my bus that was lower cut - so I wore a cami underneath to provide extra coverage. One of the girls (she’s 10 years old) looked at me and said, “I know why you wore that under your dress. You did it so you could be modest, right?” That comment touched my heart. That little girl noticed something that I would have never thought anyone would have even taken the time to realize. Now, can you imagine if it went the other way around- if I didn’t cover my body? I would have lost an incredible opportunity to encourage younger girls to be modest.
Dress modestly! You have girls watching you and following in your footsteps.

2. The way we treat authority
Our Country is breeding a generation of ungrateful and unrespectful kids. No longer do you hear kids say “Please” or “thank you.” No longer do you see kids honoring and respecting their parents. We need to be examples to those younger than us by respecting authority. If we talk back to those in charge of us in front of a younger kids it encourages them to do the same. Respect authority, and teach those younger than you to do the same!

3. If we listen to them
Kids know when you really care about them. They know when you’re really listening to them. Talk to those girls that are younger than you. Ask them about their life and listen to them. Tell them that Christ loves them and listens to their prayers. Show them you care!

4. How we act around our friends
If you ignore a child and then get excited when you see your friends it hurts them. They feel neglected and overshadowed. Treat those younger than you like you would your best friend. Get excited when you see them, give them a hug. Reach out! And when you start to act interested in their lives don’t leave them! This will cause them to feel insecure, unwanted, and untrusting.

5. Who you truly love - God or the world
 The most important thing you can do for those younger than you is to stay faithful to God. Walk close to Him. Kids watch you. Their eyes are on you. Are you being a Godly example? Are you impacting their lives? You have the opportunity to change little lives. You have the chance to impact a life forever.

Reach out and be an example for Christ!

What's in your book?


As a writer and a book lover I have always had a love for stories. I just love words! My love for writing, words, and creativity have led me to look at life in a more personal way. I like to look at my life as if it’s my story to the world - my book.  Stories that have not yet been unfolded. No one knows what the ending holds or what the next chapter will bring forth. This also led me to another thought. I started to think about people as pens. The ink that makes our stories flow out on the page.  We all have a message to bear- we all have the power to write out our life stories. BUT the most important aspect of any book, of any story, is not the paper...or the pen. But who holds the pen. The one who writes the story. Who is writing your life story today? Who is holding the pen?

In my life right now  I feel like I am embarking on a new chapter of my life. I’ve  graduating this year and soon I’ll be off to college. It’s scary. It frightens me and I often worry what the future holds...what will happen in this next chapter in my life? What joys will I experience and what sorrows will I endure? But when I do this. When I worry and fret what the next chapter holds I get in the way of the One who is supposed to be writing my story for me. So often we try to control the pen. We try to direct our own lives. But may I just say that the moment we try to take control- the moment that we try to write our own lives out is the moment we destroy them. Our life - our future- all depends on who is directing it. What is your life writing out today? Each one of our lives affects someone else's. We are all sharing a message to the world. What message are you carrying? What story are you telling? There is a song that I have on my phone that I love the words to it. It goes, “If my life's an open book, for everyone to read,each page another day, to show along the way,all You've done for me;Fill each chapter with Your love,and guide me from up above;If my life's an open book, Lord when they take a look,I hope it's you they see.”
We need to be faithfully penning out God’s love to those around us. We need to give God control of our lives- to let Him write out our life stories. We need to be willing to be a tool in the hands of the Master. God is far more equipped to write out our lives than we are. We need to learn to put our unknown future in the hands of an all-knowing God. He is far more capable to make our life turn out to be a beautiful story than we are. In our own hands it would be a tragic disaster. What’s in your book? How is your life story going? If it’s a tragic disaster it’s probably because you’re trying to be the writer….you’re trying to lead the pen. We must learn that we are just the pen. God can’t write our story without us...but we can’t write it without Him. Our future needs to lie in His hands. Have you given Him control? Is He the one writing your book?

My deepest desire is to be just a pen writing out my unknown future in the hands of an all knowing God

Psalm 100:3 - Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

When the struggle is real

*This is a article I wrote for the PURSUE magazine. If you share this please also include a link to the magazine as well -

I hope that this will be a blessing to you!


I’m sure many, if not all, of you have heard the familiar phrase, “The struggle is real.” Many of us say this almost in a joking manner while texting our friends about a small struggle we are facing. In reality, though, many of us our facing real-life, serious struggles. Many of us have something in our lives that we are having trouble overcoming. Many of us are suffering from broken hearts, bitterness, anxiety,  or maybe some of us are just struggling to keep up with the flow of life. Many of us are hurting, and most of us are dealing with “real” struggles.

    In a world struggling for success, love, support, and wealth there is still something that is much bigger than all our hurts, troubles, and struggles. Your struggle may be real...but so is God. He alone is able to conquer all of our struggles in life. 1 John 4:4- Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. We need to give our struggles to God because He alone is the One who can deliver us. Don’t tell God how big your struggles are, but tell your struggles how big your God is. Once we look at all our struggles as something God can control they don’t seem as big as they once were. In the Bible, we read about people who faced struggles much bigger than you and I. People of God, such as Paul and John, were tormented and beaten and eventually killed for the cause of Christ. Mary and Martha’s brother died. Job lost all his children. Sarah prayed for a child for over 40 years before having one. Joseph was sold as a slave. You see, many people in the past have had struggles just like you. They were real. They were big. But all of their struggles were overcome because they put their faith in God and they gave their struggles to God instead of trying to handle it themselves.

    There are other people in the Bible who had big struggles too. Samson lost his strength, Solomon lost his wisdom, Cain hated his brother, Lot’s wife had to move from her city. Pharaoh's land was full of plagues and his firstborn son was killed. These people had struggles, too. But they never overcame their struggles. Instead, their struggles overcame them. Why? You might wonder why all of these people and their struggles were never resolved like the ones I had mentioned before. It’s because they handled their struggles the wrong way. We all have struggles, but how we choose to handle our struggles makes all the difference. Real struggles placed in the hands of a real God bring forth real solutions.

God is the only one who can overcome your struggles. Even when we are weak and discouraged by the world around us God is still strong. 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 - And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.  Are your struggles in life overwhelming you? God can overcome these struggles through you. It’s all about how you respond. If you turn to God and have faith in Him then you’ll be triumphant like Job. But if you rely on your own strength and you don’t put your confidence in God you will be like Samson or Lot’s wife. You’ll let those struggles overcome you and eventually destroy you. Put your struggles into God’s hands! He is strong enough to overcome them.

Vessel of Honor

The beasts are controlled by children. I just look at the sad children and walk past. I wish I could tell them to stop. I wish.:
2Timothy 2:20-21 -  But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.
 We are all vessels. Just as earthen vessels serve different purposes, we are all people carrying various things - burdens, joys, talents, and sorrows. Some vessels are tall and beautiful while others are short and round. Some are beautiful and ornate while some are plain. Some vessels sit on a shelf and never are used. And yet some vessels are broken and unused. The truth is we are all different; we are all unique. But we share one thing in common - we were created by the same master. Our Lord expertly designed us to be vessels created for his pleasure. But yet some of us do not fulfill our purpose. We are not vessels of honor. The truth is you might feel like a broken vessel- someone without true value or worth.

  I want to talk about three stages to becoming a vessel of honor. I hope that this devotional will be a help to you. These thoughts have been a huge help to me.

Isaiah 64:8 - But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand. 

1) The Clay 

 Romans 9:21 - Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? 

When you look at a beautiful vessel, you don't think of the clay that made it do you? No, because that's not what you see when you look at it. You see something beautiful and complete. But yet before that vessel was beautiful it was just a lump of clay. It had no form, it had no beauty, and it seemed to have no purpose. And on its own that clay would never have become something beautiful.  
The thing that makes a vessel beautiful is not the clay from which it is made but the hand that forms it. 
If you are anything like me, at times, you probably feel like you have no use. That you cannot do anything remarkable or noteworthy. You feel hurt and alone....maybe you even feel incomplete. The truth is - sometimes that is where God wants us to be. God can use a a lump of clay even more than he can use a completed vessel. You might think that sounds ridiculous, but does it really? Think about it. A potter takes something that seems useless. Just a lump of clay. But once he gets a hold of that clay he molds and makes it into something beautiful - something honorable. You can't make something that's already been made. It's nearly impossible for God to use someone who thinks he's good enough on his own and doesn't need any help. Potters don't just add to something that is already done. They remake and they remold. We need to get to the place in our lives where we are willing to say, "Here I am Lord. I'm broken and useless and I can do nothing on my own. But I know that you can make me into something more. I know that you can make me a vessel of honor." On our own we really are nothing but a lump of clay, but when we put our lives in God's hands then he can make us something more.

2) The molding 

When a potter forms his clay into a beautiful piece of pottery it is a very long and difficult process. The potter shapes the clay by evenly distributing water throughout the surface of the clay. Often, it is hard to do this because of air bubbles. The potter must get rid of the air bubbles on the clay's surface before he can form it the way he pleases. 
  I think this is an incredible illustration. The Bible says that God is the potter and we are the clay. So, this means that God must mold us to become His vessel.  He must apply water (His Word) to us to mold us as he pleases. But so often we get distracted by this world and we start to fill our lives up with other things (TV, music, celebrities, money, etc.) and this forms "air bubbles". It comes between us and God. It keeps Him from molding us as He wants.  For us to become a vessel of honour we must get rid of the distractions in our lives. The Bible says that we can be either a vessel of honour or dishonour. When we allow things of this world to create "air bubbles" in our lives we become unfit for the master's use. The Lord can't use us without us surrounding ourselves with his Word and giving Him full control. We must get rid of the sin in our lives to let God form us into His vessel of honour.

3) The Fire

The third phase is the hardest, but yet the most vital. Once the potter has molded his creation, it is still not completed. Why? Well because the clay is still very sensitive to it's surroundings. If it were to be touched it would be bent, and if it were to be dropped it would break. It is still too pliable. So, it must be sealed. Potters finish their creation by putting it in the fire. This finishes the pottery and allows them to glaze it with a design. The very same thing must be true for us.
 Molding us into a vessel is not enough. It's maintaining the vessel that's the most important.
  You may let the Lord mold you the way he wants, but then how easy is it for us to break out of that mold? How often do we decide we want to have our own way? God not only wants to mold us into a vessel of honor but he wants us to continually be a vessel of honor. He sends trials our way. Sometimes he just has to send the fire. Not for us to be hurt but to heal us. 
Not to mold us but to make us.

 Are you a vessel of honour? Have you let the Lord mold you? Many times we break away from God when he sends the fire. We loose faith in Him and start heading down our own path.  We must realize that without the molding, and without the fire, we would still be just a lump of clay. Are you willing to let God be your master? Are you willing to let him take you through the fire? Because that is the only way to become a 

Have Thine own way, Lord, have Thine own way
Thou art the potter, I am the clay
Mold me and make me after Thy will
While I am waiting, yielded and still

Senior Pictures

Oh my goodness guys! I can't believe how long it's been since I did a blog post! This year has been so busy and has gone by so fast it's crazy. I can't believe that I'm almost half way done with my senior year. I got my pictures taken by a friend of mine and I thought I'd share some of them with you all.









Me from my K-5 Graduation to my high school graduation!



I hope that you all are having a wonderful November! What are your all's Thanksgiving plans? We are having it at our house for the first time this year and having family come in! I am so excited about black Friday shopping too. Do any of you all shop on Black Friday? Once again I'm so sorry for not keeping up with blogging like I used to...I really miss it. Hopefully I'll get around to posting a devotional sometime soon!

3 things we must do for our Country

and there should be NO ONE that tries to take away this soldiers right to openly pray.  

I'm sure all of you have noticed by now (or at least I hope you have) that America has made some terrible decisions in the last month. These decisions have the power to change the course of our Nation--and not in a good way. America is no longer acting like One Nation Under God. It's making decisions without Biblical principles, and our government is trying to push God and Christianity out of the picture. Ronald Reagan once said- “If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.”
    It's very discouraging to me to look at our Country and see how far it's fallen in the last few years; it makes me think about my future. It makes me almost scared to imagine what this world will be like when I'm older and maybe have a family of my own some day.
 America is falling, but it is not yet fallen. 
I know it's easy to look at this world and get discouraged, but we must realize that this world is not what we need to be focusing on. You may say, "there is no hope for us." You might say, "America will never come back to the Lord." And when those words escape your lips you become the one that is hindering our Country. We serve a living Savior. And as long as He is alive there is hope. Hope lies within the Christians of our land who will stand up for right and follow the task that is set before them. 
There is hope. Jesus is that hope. 
Right now there are soldiers in our Army who are fighting for our freedom. WE must also fight for our freedom. Prayer is a powerful force and as good soldiers of Christ and as citizens of the U.S.A it is our duty to pray for our country. There is a battle going on in America. A battle between right and wrong. A battle that Satan would like to win. He wants our country and he wants our religious freedom. But we must stand fast in the Lord and be soldiers of the Cross. 

  While doing my devotions the other day, I came across this verse that really lead me to think about our Country and the attitude that I've had towards it. This verse showed me something I can do to help my country. It showed me what all of us Christians need to be doing every single day to help our Country turn back to the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 5:16- 18 - Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

1) We must Rejoice evermore. 
1 Thessalonians 5:16 says," Rejoice evermore." It might seem hard to look at America and rejoice at where it's going, but even though there is much wrong there is still a lot of good. There is still a reason to rejoice! We must rejoice in the fact that we still have religious freedom in our Country. There are still Countries today where Christians are openly persecuted and imprisoned for their faith. There is still a reason to rejoice. And there always will be. No matter what happens in the Capitol--God is still on the throne, and he is always in control. Rejoice in the Lord. He deserves our praise. There will never be a time in which we will not have reason to rejoice in the Lord because of who He is. He is a perfect, Holy God. Make sure you take time to rejoice!

2) We must Pray without Ceasing
America needs prayer more than anything else. Prayer has the power to change the course of our nation. Sadly, most Christians don't realize the immense power of prayer. Christians aren't taking the time to bow the knee before a Just God and pray for our nation. America needs your prayers. It is our duty as Christians to pray. "To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing"   I truly believed that if we started fighting our battles on our knees before God, we'd win every time. It is a weapon more powerful than I think any of us realize. Take time to pray for our Nation!

3) We must In everything give thanks
There will always be so much to thank God for! No matter what comes our way there is always something that God has done in our lives to be thankful for. Don't whine, fret, and complain about where our Country is headed. Thank God for our Country's past and how he delivered us in so many situations. Our Country was founded by men of God. We have a Godly heritage. That is something to be thankful for.  1 Thessalonians 5:18 - In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Do you say what it says at the end of the verses? It says- "For this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."

Rejoice evermore.
Pray with out ceasing.
In everything give thanks. 

The will of God for our country is that it would do these three important things. Are you following the Will of God? Are you doing these three important things for our Country? If not-start today! Help America turn back to God. Fight for our country by: 1- Rejoicing evermore. 2-Praying without ceasing. 3- In everything give thanks.

This crazy life of mine

This summer has just started but it has been so busy I've barely had any time to sit down and collect my thoughts! I hope all of you are doing marvelous. So sorry for not posting very often--I really wish I had more time to write on here but the older I get the more responsibilities I collect and the less time I have! I do have some exciting things that have happened over the last couple of of them being that I got my license! And a car! YIPPEE.
Also, my family is moving in two weeks into a bigger house in the area-I am so excited. We've been crazy busy packing and everything but we're all looking forward to the new house. Next week my youth group is headed off for summer camp! Can't believe it's already been a year. Me and my friend will be doing a skit and I'm playing piano for the Instrumental competition. I'm getting nervous about it all but I'm sure it will turn out great.
   I also have some news for you all personally. This Summer I won't be able to take any blog design orders-I'm just going to be too busy and I'm trying to dedicate more time to my writing instead of designing right now. BUT I WILL BE BACK. Hopefully around mid-August I'll be firing up my blog designing again.
If you haven't checked out my Facebook page for Daughter of the King yet please do! I'd really appreciate it if you liked my page. Also, I have a personal account if you'd like to friend me. Thank you all for continuing to read my blog! You all are such a blessing. Keep shining bright for Jesus

Do you have a speed limit?

                                                   t r a v e l

The following text is taken from chapter 3 from a book I am currently writing. I hope that it's a blessing to you and I'd love to hear your feedback from it. 

 “SLOW DOWN!” Those are probably the last words many passengers have yelled in a car crash. Can you imagine it in your mind? The driver is speeding down the road not noticing the dangerous ditch coming up ahead of him. The person in the passenger seat sees the ditch. They yell; they shout out a warning. But then it's too late. I believe the teen years are like journeying down the highway of life-there is danger everywhere and if we don’t watch out we will end up wrecking our lives. In life we need to have a speed limit. 

 Gaining speed
  In America, us teens are constantly busy with school, friends, and social media. We fill up all our time in the day and jam our schedules full! We’re constantly texting our friends to see when the next big event is and gossiping about the latest romance. We pack our minds full with thoughts of television shows, our Facebook status, and the new cute girl or guy at school.
  If you’re like me you enjoy living a busy life—doing fun things, hanging out with friends, and planning for our futures as adults. While we should live a good and productive life I believe many of us are going way to fast—we’re flying through life. Teens are just living in the moment enjoying the thrill that being older brings. They don’t give much thought to spiritual things but want to “live it up” and have as much fun while they still can.
  I can’t even begin to tell you have many teens I know that are so excited about the freedoms their adulthood will bring them. They can’t wait to let their wings out and soar. They want to take control of their own lives as soon as possible.
  High School students are busy with schoolwork trying to plan out what they want to do when they graduate, if they are or are not going to college, and where. Some are busy with their jobs and relationships, but in the midst of our busy teenage lives we have lost sight of something very important.

   We’ve lost sight of time spent with God. We’ve replaced time spent with God with time spent with ourselves and this world.

  We’ve lost sight of spending personal time with him. We’re moving too fast, always planning for the next day and having our own agenda. We think we’ve got all our lives planned out and can’t wait to be an adult with our own freedoms and responsibility. The fact is, time is short. Why hurry it? Our teen years are the most important years in our lives—so why are we trying to pass the time and counting the days till we become an adult? God gave us this time in our lives for a reason, and that reason is not partying and just having fun. I’m not saying God doesn’t want us to have fun, but I am saying he has much bigger and much more important plans for our teen years.
 We can do more for God now than probably any other time in our future lives. As young people we have more energy, more zeal, and more time. The teen years should be a time to grow and spend time with God, but instead we use these years to satisfy our flesh and cravings of adulthood. 

If we aren’t the teens God needs us to be we’ll never be the adults he needs us to be.

We must start serving God now. Don’t push it off till later. So many teens have the mindset that they’ve got to get their lives all figured out before they can turn their focus to God and his work and will for their lives. The truth is his work for us begins NOW. We must first find out who God wants us to be before we go on deciding what we want to be. We must slow down our schedules and make time for God and his will for our lives. So many teens use the teen years to date, party, and just have fun, but what will this matter in the long run? What is the eternal value of these petty things?
All of that stuff just brings pain and repercussions, not life-long fulfillment. I work on a bus route and I have nine year old girls already talking about the boy they are currently dating! How can this possibly be? How could they be thinking of such things at such a young age? The truth is our world is promoting adult pleasures for us young people, but not adult responsibility. They want us to be able to date and be in relationships but they don’t show the moral responsibility these things bring. The truth is we don’t need to fill our minds and time with these things now. The world says you aren’t special if you’re single. God says singleness is a gift (1Co 7:32 - But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord: ) when in a relationship a huge part of our time and thoughts go into the person we are with, but at this time in our lives all of our time and thoughts need to be directed towards the Lord and his plan for our lives.
Slow down.
Don’t be in a hurry to be an adult. Use the time God has given you to make a different today. Don’t waste the time God has given you now dreaming of a time not yet to come. Good things come to those that wait for God’s best. Instead of devoting your time and energy to pursuing a relationship with a special someone pursue a relationship with your very special God. Slow down, and give your time to God.
