  1. I just doodled my way over here from SDL, and find you to be quite the young woman! You are wise, mature, beautiful, and God has clearly given you some amazing talents and passions.

    I love this list! I, too, am a Jesus follower, so I share many of these same goals (and have done quite a few - especially in the realm of childbirth and spending time with the "least of these" - and I'm from Canada...).

    Anyways, just wanted to say that I was blessed to read some of your wise words, and to see how God has obviously captivated you. Don't think that you are boring. He created you just the way you are, and you are extraordinary because YOU ARE HIS. :)


If you honestly expect me to blog more. Comment. Trust me.
