What's going on?

School starts September 7th. . .


I'm going to be busy with everything from finding a job to trying to make it to outreach and youth services. There is going to be so much homework and a lot of studying this year. :/ Unbelievable.

By the way, I do Independent Studies with Connections Academy and it is all online. I pretty much teach myself :/ which is why I will be so busy!

I apologize *in advance* for the lack of posts that are soon to come :(

There was my random part of the post... Now, onto other things :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I am trying to find a job. I've been praying for one :) I believe I will be able to get one, too... The other day I babysat one of the Sister's daughters from church. When she came to pick her up she told me she would be going back to work soon and needed a babysitter :) I told her that I would if she would like. Soooo, we'll see if God doesn't mind :) lol and if that doesn't work, I'm trying to find an evening job because I babysit my…

"blog destroyed"

Oh my word. Today, I looked at my blog and it was all hay-wire! So that's why there's a new layout and everything :( *tear*

Alright, sorry if you saw it like that :( I took an hour or 2 to fix it...but it looks all right now :/

Btw, leave a comment :) The blog status shows people from other countries visiting :) lol so drop a comment!!

Anyways, Love y'all <3
And thanks for dealing with my "messed up blog"

Nifty Finds(:

Sooooooo!!! I went to Quality Thrift store on Saturday (w/my mommy)!!!
Eeeek! WOW!!! GREAT DEALS and lovely vintage finds :D


I just looked up the address: 4433 Holt Blvd Montclair, CA 91763
:) hope you can stop by and shop around lol


Anyways, I got a new suit :) size 2P *and it fits PERFECTLY!! Even the skirt :D Excited!!! I already sent it to the dry cleaners  lol*
I got a new vintage dress!!! I'll post a picture somewhere in this post lol
Okay, we probably bought almost 10 purses!! Well, clutches :) and all vintage!! I love 'em!! Also, tons of new hair stuff! I wish they had a vintage hat but I didn't find one when we went :(

And everything was sooo cheap! My suit was $15 (the most expensive) to like 50 cents a hair piece :) plus the purses *I also bought a little vintage backpack* were buy 1 get 1 free!!! :D wow!

Isn't it awesome!?


This is my cousin Justin & I :) That's my dress, it's a light grey/green with white and pink stripes and one of the clutches! :)) …

Do You Want Big & Beautiful Curls???

Hello my Ladies!!! :)


I started curling my hair at a young age (too young to remember, if you know what I mean lol). I've seen pictures of TIGHT POODLE curls ;)

Recently, I've been wanting looser locks!!!!!!

Soooo.... I heard that doubling up on hot sticks . . .

*picture of conair hot sticks*


. . . works REALLY good!!!

Here is the low-down of how my hair was:

Now, my hair is SUPER striaght, was permed SEVERAL times, and was just too thin and damaged!!! *tear :'( So, (3 years ago, I got my last perm) it JUST started growing and getting thicker this year :) *happy happy happy face!!*

When I first tried doing the double rolling, it would leave creases (yes, that's how thin my hair was). I was like "NO WAY!!! I'm never going to do this again!!!" Up until a couple months ago at least :) lol!


I created some big, bold & beautiful curls!!! *with the help of Aussie Freeze hairspray ;)*


You see!?!? No more tight poodle-looking curls!! :) Makes me so happy!!! I just t…

Will you?

My girls can definitely relate to this ;)


*phone vibrates*

You have a text from your best friend...

*phone vibrates again*

O o o o! Hey! Its that really cute guy you met at the youth service Friday night!!!

*You end up texting the boy before your friend*



Do we do that with God?? We see God's "text" and then something else comes up!

"I got a phone call!"
"I had to pay some bills that were due---yesterday!!!"

Something ALWAYS comes up right when God calls!!!

Has this ever happened to you?


You wake up in the morning and think about your 'prayer closet'...


You lay there until it's too late and you have to get dressed and ready for work or school.


You said you would get to it later but around noontime, you have even more things you have to finish.

Has this ever happened to you?


You're texting your friends before bed...


You look over at your Bible and think about prayer before you lay down to sleep.


Before you know it, you went to sleep without prayer.


With…

Happy Birthday

...to my TWO cousins!!!!!

Miss Morgy-pie



and Shells-bells!!!! <3
LOVE YOU BOTH TO THE MOON AND BACK ...heehee...

Our Full Potential [Part 2]

(go to part 1 here)



Taking another role for the time being:


I may be saying, "That's where I'm supposed to be!" (out in the fields, using weapons I've had little experience with) but God says, "No, no Daughter. Step over here, please. You have some learning to do before you walk that way."

Sure, my strengths were over there but right now, I have to learn and be consistent in prayer. I need to sharpen my tools. I need to learn how to save a soul. Learn, learn, learn! I need to be prepared! 

When God is saying NO to that path, He is leading me to another one where I can grow in Him. You see, I will overcome trials, build more faith, pray more, get more revelations down this road to prepare me for the one I so desperately wanted to go down just a short time ago. 

When you see a glacier, you only see the small portion on top, right? The ice underneath is 10x longer and wider than what you see!!! That's how God sees us. He sees all our potential and if you …

Pick Up Lines for the Apostolics ;)

You know, I would be laughing so hard if a guy said any of these to me lol but I still think it would be kinda cute :p haha!

So without further adieu, I give you the Pentecostal Pick Up Lines ;)

*my favorite ones will be in italic :p lol*

1. Nice bible
2. Do you need help carrying your bible? It looks heavy.
3. If I had to choose between a romantic date with you or a night with the fellas… I would sit at home and read my bible.
4. Is that a thinline, duo-tone, compact, ESV Travel Bible in your pocket!?
5. Why don't I have a bible dictionary? Well, I dont really need it.
6. What, this here? Oh.. that's my study bible - it’s a little bigger but I can handle the extra spiritual and physical weight.
7. I've prayed about it and God wants you to go out with me.
8. My friend told me to come and meet you, he said that you are a really nice person. I think you know him. Jesus, yeah that's his name.
9. God told me to come talk to you
10. Marry me.
11. The Word says "Give drink to…

Our Full Potential [Part 1]

A couple Sundays back, my Auntie Kristy (youth pastor's wife) had us write down names of who we wanted to speak in our class...Special Speakers :) And today we got Sis. Letty, a very respected saint in our church, and boy oh boy! It was so good!

She talked about potential. At the end of the class, Steven Orell said, "We should have taped this!" I whole heartedly agree!!! It was THAT GOOD! I believe God used Sis. Letty this morning to touch my youth group (ME especially!) Of course, I can't write every word she said (way too hard to remember ;) lol) but I'll try to do a brief summary-ish post :) *including the 2 pictures she used!! The EXACT ones lol*


*by the way, this is very hard to put into a post...or transfer it from thought to "paper"*


The definition of potential: capable of being or becoming
We all have potential of becoming something GREAT for God! Sis. Letty had us close our eyes and visualize what it was or what we felt it was. She talked about G…

Lakeside Laughter

Last night:

My goodness! I had soo much fun last night!!!!!!
I met several new people ♥ LOL :)
And the girls I was hanging with and I invented our "chola [wannabe] walk" ;)
Miss Kelsey knows what I'm talking about!!!!
We died laughing walking across the buffets and doing 'the walk'
.....and we silently got rebuked ;) hahaha
Man, whoever wasn't there missed out!!!!

A few pictures:






At youth services (or any service in general), have you gone up to someone and it seems like you've met them but honestly...you've only heard of them "through the grapevine" (if that's the right term lol!)??? I'm guilty :p hahaha
Well, last night I was talking with Alicia, one of my new friends from Lakeside :), and I know her sister Taylor (I met her at camp in '08). Alicia was like, "ohhh!!! I have a bunch of pictures of you on my computer and I never met you! Lol..." and the conversation goes on :p and we start talking about how we know people b…

How-To for Picnik

Okay :)

Awhile ago, Mary [from Classic Mary Moments] suggested I do a post about how to use picnik.com!!! And all the cool editing tools :) I'll use this picture:

and show the end result :) Really, it's simple! I'll explain it to you in 4 steps! You just have to be creative!!! Kendra Thaler also uses picnik.com on some of her photos. Check out her page and see how she uses picnik :) For picnik, there are premium and FREE effects. I use the FREE ones :) the effects will say if it's premium or not.

Step 1: after I uploaded my photo on picnik, I do touch ups (rotate, use red eye if need be, crop the photo for a more closed-in effect if I feel like it'll look better, and adjust the exposure and color) You have to fiddle with the adjusting and some stuff you won't even use because it might not look right :) but give it a try because ya neva know lol

Step 2: go to the 'create' tab and go to touch ups. You'll want to do any necessary touch ups :) there is bl…

I miss church.

I am just soo ready to go to church tonight. I haven't been to church in a week because we were camping. I need it really bad today. I miss church! I only missed 3 services (Wednesday night and the 2 services on Sunday) but I feel like that's way too much. Lol. I haven't missed a service in a longggg time and it feels so weird. I don't know how people don't go to church!! I ALWAYS want to be there. I ALWAYS want to pray there. I ALWAYS get strength there when I'm feeling weak.


I can't say NO to going to church!!!

"He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall; But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."
Isaiah 40:29-31

Grandma Great

My Grandma Eunice has been in a convalescent home for awhile and in the last 3 months, she has gotten really bad sick (as Mamaw describes it to her grandbabies). This afternoon, I got a text from Mamaw saying Grandma Great was doing really bad. Like how Aunt Sue was the morning she passed away.

Please keep our family in your prayers. A lot has happened, thank you!

The Witnessing Tool

*Calling all Apostolic - Pentecostals*


Do you ever feel like you're the only one who is different at school or work?

The only one whose religion is TRUE and SEPARATED?
That hears preaching from the Word of God and not from the "how-to" books?


Yes, when we start up a conversation about what religion we are, they claim Christianity and know Jesus Christ is Lord, yet, they live amongst the world. Unseparated.

2 Corinthians 6:17 says,"Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing]; and I will receive you,"

We feel like we're the only ones in school who don't wear mini-skirts, the way-to-revealing tops (also known as the how-much-skin-can-i-show-and-not-get-in-trouble-for-it clothing)??? For guys, you get asked the question, "Aren't you hot!?" way too much. Enough to get on your nerves. Being the only person they see dressed like this, at the very least you could say that it surprises them.…

School already!?

Hmm....

I have a month until school starts.... And all of my friends start next week.... What am I going to do!? =(

NOOOOOO!!!!!!

*sobs*

I'm going to be all by myself :(

Can you think of any ideas you would like to share with me?? What should I do these next few weeks????

Anyways, here are a couple pictures :)




Loevly fun :) Late at night....This is what happens when you take best friends and lock them up in the same house over night... ;)

Oh and by the way:
