An Encouraging Truth

Right now,
you may feel like you’re climbing a mountain, that you’re problems are too steep and all uphill.
Keep climbing!
You may feel like you’re swimming upstream, the waters too deep and has an aching chill.
Keep swimming!
Or maybe you’re struggling to hold onto a dream,
an impossible dream for which you haven’t the skill.
Keep holding!
Because, isn’t a dream worth having, a dream worth fighting for?
You are God’s dream and He fought for you, so why shouldn’t you fight, too?
You say you’re tired, but rest will come.
You say you’re weakened from fighting, but strength is near.
And victory is within your reach.
Because, any battle worth winning will be tough, but you’re toughened for the battle! Any problem may be rough, but just swing into that saddle! You’re stronger than you think, and braver with each blink, so keep up life’s juggles, and just ignore the haters’ booing.
Because anything worth doing will have struggles,
but anything worth the struggle is worth doing!

The Truth about Beautiful You

    Heeeeey girls!
    Ok, please humor me and look in a mirror.
    Go on, look.
    Now tell me, what do you see?
    Nuhuh, don’t give me that! I can hear that doubt in your voice. Maybe a little frustration; some hurt. Well, look again, come on now, look. Really look. You know what God sees?
    Two eyes that sparkle like the stars He made, a smile that shines like sunlight on raindrops, all framed by that beautiful face He stamped with His thumbprint and you know what?
    He thinks you’re beautiful.
    Oh no, stop that!
    Stop what, you ask?
    That! I heard that little voice (the same one you did) that voice saying “yah right.”
    Well, yah, I’m right!
    We all deserve to feel beautiful, it doesn’t matter what size we are, what color our skin, eyes, or hair is, whether we have straight teeth or not. True beauty isn't in the outward person, but the inward personality. And we all deserve to feel it.
    You are beautiful, God thinks so, I think so, and you should think so, too! So go on, think about it. Because that’s the Truth about Beautiful You J

What It’s Not

It’s not the strength of the body, but the strength of your loving heart. It’s not the height of the legs, but the height of the good person within. It’s not the beauty of your reflection, but the beauty of your personality which reflects on the outside. It’s not the size of the waistband, but the size of the spirit which drives you. That’s what makes a person. That’s what makes you who you are. And who you are is beautiful, starting on the inside, working its way out. And that’s the truth! J

A Loving Truth; You are Loved

Jesus loves you. He loves you more than there are stars in the sky, grains of sand on the beach, and drops of water in all the world’s oceans combined. He loves you more than there are blades of grass on the prairie and with as much force as the water that gushes over Niagara Falls. He loves you so much, He made this whole beautiful world just for you. That’s how much Jesus loves you! <3

A Precious, Treasured Truth

Precious. It means: ‘to be greatly cherished’, and we like to use it in sentences like: “Now isn’t she precious?” A kitten in a flowerpot is precious. A puppy playing in high grass is precious. A child rolling out cookie dough is precious. That’s what we think of as "precious". But, why don’t we say: “I’m precious, too.”?

Treasured. It means: ‘something of great value’, and when we think of treasure we think of incredible wealth hidden in wondrous caves. Diamonds are treasured. Rings, blings, and shiny things are treasured. So are family memories and heirlooms. That’s what we think of as "treasured". But why don’t we think: “I’m treasured, too?”

Why don’t we stop to think: “I’m precious or treasured, or loved, or beautiful.”? Is it selfish to like yourself? No, not really. Is it wrong to like the you that you are? No, actually.

Well, if you would call someone you love precious or treasured, why not say the same about yourself?
You deserve to.
And the truth is,
God already loves
And you should, too!

Happy Mother’s Day!

To every Mother, young and old, new and veteran, thank you for all you do.
You might not wear the capes but you certainly are super heroes, and even if you think what you do isn’t appreciated, think again, because even though we don’t say ‘thank you’ often enough, except for one day a year, we mean it with all our

Proverbs 31 says that you are more valuable than Rubies, but to us
you mean so much more.

I know I wouldn’t be anywhere today (writing, riding or even walking) without the amazing strength my Mother loaned to me, and I’m sure there are lots of other kids out there who feel the same way about their Moms.

So thank you for all you do,
 We love you very much,
Happy Mother’s Day!
P.S. I love you, Mom!

Your Very First Beautiful Truth about You :)

You are so special! Yes, YOU! You’re so special that the Lord created you in His image. You are so special that He stamped your face with His thumbprint. You are so special and He loves you so much that He only made one body that bears your face. There is no other person on earth like you, because God thought you were so special that He made an original, one-and-only, exclusive, extra-special, phenomenal, you. You are so special that He sent His one and only Son to come to earth and die to save YOU from your sins. How much more special can you get? As far as He’s concerned – not much more! J
