I'm an actual wuss.

I just wrote an incredibly serious/light-hearted blog. I know, I know...that's a juxtaposition. But I prefaced the blog with "I don't normally write preachy-opiniony blogs but I am going to now". It was up for a total of 4 minutes and I had to take it off. I felt bad. Part of it I will definitely repost because it was about something Jesus changed in my heart tonight concerning beauty. Wait - I'll just tell you now.

I've been quite worried about my weight/dieting for a while now. Tonight I just prayed about it for a long time. Not that God would miraculously make me skinny or rev up my metabolism, but that He would create in me a clean heart & I could be an encouraging voice to the women in my life. I'm a mom to a sweet girl, a housemom to pregnant girls, and a friend to women.... I want them to be encouraged by the way I love Christ in me and in them. I do not want to spur them to further vanity or negative introspection.

The other half of the blog was about a current theory that I'm working on concerning Hollywood, scientologists, & celebrities. If you REALLY want to hear it - email me & I'll tell you. I actually don't want to offend anyone or sound trivial about celebrities lives.

hahaha... taking my crazy mind to bed now.

I can't speak for anyone else but one thing that I love about you is that you tell it how it is. I'd love to hear your theory on celebreties. Send it on over!

ok, that's 5 "send it to me's". I'd say that's worthy of a blog. (with Jesus' heart, of course)

you are blessed with so many witnessing opportunities and are an encouragement to so many women. i love that you are so open about life and how God is pursuing you. you just do your thing and shine on because i'm positive that your life will continue to be a direct reflection of Christ's love for everyone, particularly the heart of women. i am so happy i found your blog!
