Just that girl. So much can be used to describe me, but it's one thing that defines me: Jesus.
I'm a normal teenage girl, with dreams, passions, and lots to give to this world, but I just take it one day at a time, the best I can with God.
"Try an experiment. For a week or so, do not read any blogs or listen to any sermons. Don’t read any Christian books or seek someone else’s advice. Instead: Spend time in prayer and Scripture, in your bedroom or out in nature, and question everything. Talk with the Father. See what you find. Solidify your convictions, and when you come back to the open world of voices, see if you have a refreshed perspective.
I think your outlook will change. I think you’ll find that many of the paradigms and social constructs that you held dear were wrong: not because anyone is bad, but because we buy into ideas that sound good but don’t really work.
You’ll find that some authors and pastors and bloggers probably have noble intentions, but they’re writing from a vacuum-sealed, isolated laboratory without true love for your soul. You’ll see the cute little catchphrases and preprogrammed statements and all the self-promotions and attention-seeking — and you’ll see it in me, in you, and realize there is Only One we can truly trust with our entire being. Because He absolutely loves you within Himself, without extra motives, without working an angle. I would check with Him first."
"When photographer James Mollison was asked to do a project on children’s rights, he found himself thinking back to his childhood bedroom and the deep importance it played in his upbringing. Taking that idea with him around the world, he photographed a diverse cross section of children and the bedrooms they call home. His moving images remove the children from their home environment, showing them before a neutral background that mostly hides their economic status as if to say “kids are just kids.” Only when their bedroom is observed, however, does the full scope of their living situation become poiniently clear.”
