Hello and Happy Friday! I am actually currently on vacation, and this post was scheduled back at the beginning of May so I can relax and be lazy. But don’t worry, it was written with today in mind! I have gone through several stages in my life where I hated myself and I thought that I didn’t deserve to even be on this Earth and it felt like I had this weight on my soul crushing me, and there was no way for me escape. I’m just going to be honest with you, I might have gone back to those places if it weren’t for these cards. With these cards I have been reminded how much my friends, family, and God love me, and I want each of you to feel the same way, which is why I’m sharing it with you.
Here’s What You Need:
Large Index Cards (Enough so everyone can have one)
Sharpies, pens, or markers in various colors (Enough so everyone can have one)
Hard Surfaces for Everyone to Write On
Here’s How You Do It:
- Have everyone sit in the circle, and pass out the index cards and pens/markers making sure that everyone has one. Have everyone in the circle write their names down in the middle of their card, like mine.
- Now, have everyone pass their card to the person on their left. That person now has to write something nice or a characteristic of God that they see in that person. For example some things people wrote on mine were “Warrior” “Princess” and “Kind”. You can also write down a verse or an encouragement for that person.
- At the end, everyone gets their card back, and they can keep it in their Bible or their Bible Notebook so that they’re reminded of those things every day and encouraged! This is a great end of the year activity, and when I did it it was with my Youth Group while we were on our Spring Retreat. It is so much fun, and I love my card.
What are some things you do when you’re feeling down? Did you try this activity? If so how did it go? Let me know in the comments below!
Love you all,
Hey beautiful amazing reader! Today is Monday, and if you have been following this blog for any amount of time you know I hate Mondays. And if you have not been following this blog for very long, then first of all welcome, and second of all now you know. What you might NOT know is that the only thing I hate more than Mondays are mornings. And the worse time to be around me is Monday mornings. Seriously just don’t even try to be nice to me. I won’t be doing the same to you. However, after I get some food in my body, I am the happiest girl alive, especially if that food is some DELICIOUS Granola. Yum yum yum! Here’s my Easy recipe!

Hey everyone! I am so excited to announce that I am finally done with my Freshman year of High School! Oh my goodness it is about time! I am so ready for summer vacation. This summer is so busy, and I’m going to hit the ground running when my family and I take a road trip cross country from Kansas to the north east, stopping in Virginia, Washington D.C., Connecticut, Niagara Falls, and Rhode Island (to name a few). Then, we drive BACK to Kansas, say goodbye to all my friends, pack up everything I own and move to Texas. Then a week after I move to Texas I’m flying to Puerto Rico. And that’s just the first half of the summer!

Hey guys! It’s Noel here and it is FINALLY almost Summer. Okay so maybe not in a scientific sense but definitely in an “I’m-almost-out-of-school” sense. I’m so excited, but before Summer starts I want to challenge you guys, my readers, to do something really amazing. I know how easy it can be to just sit around and be lazy all day, but I want you to read this post and after you’re done reading it participate in the challenge.
- Worldwide Obesity has DOUBLED since 1980
- In 2008, over 1.4 BILLION men and women were obese
- 65% of the world’s population live in countries where overweight and obesity kills more people than underweight.
- Overweight and obesity are the fifth leading risk for global deaths. At least 2.8 million adults die each year as a result of being overweight or obese.
Before we go any further, I want to establish something. I don’t care about your weight or body shape or size. Everyone is an individual and I don’t want you to base your body weight on mine because we are different people. I care that you are a healthy human being and you’re not putting your life in jeopardy because of your weight. I won’t judge you if you eat that burger for lunch, but I’ll get worried if you eat the same thing every day for weeks on end. Everything is good in moderation.
Now that we’ve estalished that I want you to participate in the challenge.

But I loved it because between working on my normal schoolwork and preparing to move to a whole new state (totally crazy I know), I’ve been working on some AMAZING designs for the greatest most amazing surprise of all for my amazing wondrous readers! (In case you missed the obvious hint, that means you!)
I’m opening up my own apparel and accessory shop! And I’m so so excited to share this with you guys, because I know how everyone can have days where they just don’t believe in themselves, or they just need some encouragement, and that’s why everything in my shop is going to be designed by women, for women, with encouraging designs.
Also, did you know that over 70% of women’s clothing is designed by men? (That might explain why everything keeps getting skimpier and skimpier) We have a 100% Modesty guarantee!
But here’s the catch: All items that don’t sell more than 11 items in the first month WON’T CONTINUE BEING SOLD!!!! AHHH! So if you really want one of these products you need to buy it NOW! Click the link below to order your product today.
