There is Purpose in the Pain

What you look for in the world, you will normally find.
The world is broken, and so are we.
Nothing lasts forever, including us.
Trust doesn't form overnight, but it breaks easily.
Behind every pain, there is a purpose.
In every event, God is working.
Even if it isn't what you want, it’s what you need.
Though it breaks our hearts, this is life.
Look for the beauty, it’s in the ashes.
Because behind every pain, there is a purpose.
In everything, God is working for your good.

There is a purpose to this pain.

15 days || Editing

Our neighbors cat.

Luke, my dog. 

He's super photogenic

Well guys, NaNoWriMo begins in 15 days. I'm officially not ready. 
Last year at this time I had no idea that I would write my first full length novel in Novemeber of 2016. Now, 11 months later, I am still working on editing that piece of work. It is such a mess. But goodness, I love my characters so much! I have a love/hate relationship with the book right now.
I was planning on tackling this books sequel this year, but since I haven't even edited it yet, I'm going to delay that a bit. 

I am going to write book four in my Ordinary series, and book five in my Princess series. I am so excited to be going back to these series. 

Here's my inspiration boards for each book.

The main girl's name is Tabitha. There are a bunch of other characters in the book, but unfortunately I couldn't find photos of them.

Just Your Ordinary Sister

Mandy is my main character. Aubrey is her sister and Brook is her friend.

I'll share more about the story's as I begin to write them!

Also, there is an awesome giveaway going on over at A Farm Girl's Life. If you already follow her, you should check it out here!

Are you excited for NaNo?

Ten Years, One Week

Its been ten years and one week since I was saved. So, instead of rambling on for a long time, I wrote a poem for y'all (Which happens to be rather long. Oh well.).

It’s been ten years
One decade
It seems so long ago 
And it seems like yesterday 
I was on my bed
At what used to be late at night
I asked for God to join me 
And come into my heart
I was the last one in my family 
And in ten years 
I’ve had three best friends 
I’ve grown up 
I’ve traveled to twenty different states
I began to write 
I took up photography
I met amazing people 
I learned so much
Like nothing is what I thought it would be 
That life changes 
When you least expect it to 
I didn’t know what I was getting into 
I didn’t know it would bring heartbreak 
I didn’t know about the healing 
I never thought about betrayal 
Of losing friends 
I didn’t know 
How much I’d rely on my God 
To pull me through 
But here we are 
Ten years later 
Grown up and broken 
But deep inside 
I still hold a seven year old 
With childish faith 
That God would make everything better
And deep down I know 
Even though things have changed 
They’re just as they should be 
And I wouldn’t change a day 
Of the last ten years and one week

So guys, tell me, how did you get saved? Please comment below and tell me!!

15 Thoughts from My Jumbled Brain.


I've got brain fry. I can't keep it on one subject very long right now. So, y'all get a random list of 15 things I was thinking about. 

1. Editing is harder then it looks.
2. Coloring on your editing makes it better. 
3. Lindsey Stirling has amazing music. 
4. And I don't like violin, so don't ask me why I like Lindsey Stirling.
5. My body has decided sleep 24/7 is the way to go.
6. My brain also wants me to stay up late.
7. Dancing in moonlight is the best. 
8. Poetry at midnight. Enough said. 
9. I don't know how people keep up with so much work. 
10. I can't even keep up with my little pile of work. 
11. Reviewing books is amazing. 
12. Trying not to think about how close NaNo is. 
13. The teen girl blogging community is the best.
14. I really wish traveling was cheaper. 
15. My dog caught a mouse. I think he believes hes a cat.

Sorry about how jumbled this post is.

The Fight

Photo curtsy of

This is a slightly fictionalized version of a real conversation I had with a friend.

Someone asked me

What the fight was

Why I keep saying

I’m in a battle

I wanted to tell them

All that had gone wrong

I wanted to spill my heart

I wanted to show them the fight

But instead I asked

How they could view life

As anything else

The battle is real

The struggle continues

But sometimes I forget

That not all of life is fighting

I need to take a breath

Take a rest from the fight

And put it all into the hands

Of the One who made me

Because I might fight

But He fights harder

I might struggle

But He already won the battle

I might loose

But He never will

I might stumble

But He will uphold me

Someone once asked me

What the fight is

And I had to reply

It is Gods.
