Your favorite way to be active. Why do you love it?
My favorite way to be active is playing soccer! I played all through high school (and then vicariously through my brother in college) and I just love the pace and intensity.
Three ways you get inspired
1) Accounts I follow on IG
3) Browsing other people’s blogs!
What makes you feel strong?
Knowing who I am in Christ makes me feel strong. Recognizing that God calls me beautiful, He calls me fearfully and wonderfully made; that He knows the plans He has for me–plans to prosper, plans to give me a hope and a future! Those thoughts and that truth empowers me in my daily life.
You’re in a room of teenage girls, what is the best advice you can give them?
The best advice I can give a room full of teenage girls is this: “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all this will be added unto you.” -Matthew 6:33. It is so, incredibly true, that when we seek God first, when we determine to place God as our greatest love in life, He adds all good things unto us. That is so beautiful to me, so reassuring to me, and I want everyone to know it..especially young girls!
What issue regarding women is important to you and how are you supporting it?
I am passionate about encouraging and empowering women who have been through treacherous heartbreak. I’ve been through so many break-ups myself that I know what it feels like to have your heart broken, and I know how hopeless and painful it is. I am writing a book about my own experiences, but I’m also doing my best to encourage girls through my blog and my Instagram posts to have faith and hope as they navigate and cope with difficult seasons.
I think in 2017 it’s important that women…because…
In 2017, it is important that women recognize their inherent value, because many, many women simply do not. If more women knew who they really were, and how precious and valuable their lives really are, how there is a purpose for what they have to offer…man. I believe families, marriages, and lives would be so beautifully fulfilled instead of tragically broken.
List three things you love right now
1) My skinny jean overalls from H&M. They are literally my weekend uniform.
2) Capuccinos. I’ve been a vanilla latte girl for two years now, but I’m slowly and surely switching to the bolder cappie as my morning go-to.
3) My 2017 Heavenly planner from Horacio Printing. It is everything and I carry it everywhere.
I feel most confident when I’m wearing
I feel most confident when I’m wearing my mid-rise black skinny jeans from J.Crew. They fit so perfect and go with everything and you simply cannot stop me when they’re on 😉
Who do you aspire to be more like? Why?
I aspire to be more like Jesus. Jesus loved people so perfectly and so completely, and I truly desire to love people like Jesus did.
What beauty product can you not live without?
Maybe this is old school but I can’t be without Ponds! I use Ponds face cream every morning and every night and I couldn’t imagine not having it in my daily routine.
