Happy Thanksgiving week

I hope everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving with the ones you love :)

A few things I'm thankful for:
*I'm soo extremely thankful for being raised in the church and for my Pastor and his wife!!!! I don't know what would have happened to me if I hadn't come to be under my Pastor. I'm so grateful!!! I've been placed under a praying man of God who loves his church. I know he prays for me and keeps me safe.
*I'm thankful for my youth leaders Bro Jeffrey Rowell and Bro Chris Brill! They are some great leaders who have a burden for our youth group. They are there to guide us and correct us if needed. They also know how to have fun!! I'm thankful I don't have boring youth pastors!!!!!!! ;)
*Thankful for my family and best friends :) Daddy and Mom, Papaw and Mamaw, my uncles and aunts, my cousins as all my 2nd cousins etc etc ;) lol if I named all the family I would take too long. I'm thankful for my best friends that I've made all over the country. My best friend Sean who can be a complete goofball when I need to laugh lol :) my favorite cousin Brookie <3 who is such a brat ;) but I love her so much.

There is so much to be THANKFUL for!!!!!!

I had the opportunity on Thanksgiving night to put my little cousin Morgan to bed. I told her that before we go to bed tonight let's thank Jesus for everything. We had a whole list going. Her little toys, her friend Chloe, her brother and sisters, mommy and daddy, cousins Meagan;) lol, for breathing... And then I prayed for her to sleep peacefully that night.

Whenever you have an opportunity like this to be with your younger siblings or family members, (to the parents) your kids, don't pass it up. It felt good I was able to do that with her.

I'm thankful this year for everything God has given me.

Where have I been?

Has it really been almost 2 years since my last post? So much has changed.

(Honestly, I am updating my blog because I like to reflect back on how far God has brought me. Forewarning, don't read if you don't want to take a look into my life the past year. This blog has many memories and I want to add on to it.)

2 years seems like a lifetime ago. I was hurting, broken-hearted, uprooted, and quite frankly, needing God more than ever. I questioned everything I was taught and needed answers, but thankfully, there was one thing I knew for sure...

God had plans and He would be all I needed.

Fast forward to October 2017 and I have lived in the state of Washington for a year, moved into my dreamy studio apartment in August, and I work in beautiful northern Idaho making & working more than I would have in Southern California. Who would have thought? Little Miss Meagan, moving 1.300 miles away from her family because God opened doors and said, "Come."

The Struggle is Real

I am not usually the person who spreads their woes on Facebook, Instagram, or blog. Tonight may be the exception but I will refrain from letting emotions get the best of me.

We are all facing trials. Whether you are 16 years old and tempted to cut your hair, 18 years old and thinking about leaving the church since you are technically an 'adult', 21 years old and being pressured to drink, or 24 years old and struggling with hurt and depression.

The struggle is REAL!

The truth is, we are all at different points in our walk with God and, believe it or not, the trials are ALL God-ordained. They have been put in our life specifically for us and to make us more like Christ. The struggles you are facing are a test of your faith and love for God, but they are also there so you can learn from your mistakes and help others when they go through the same trial.

Honey, if you are dealing with hurt, I could quote scripture after scripture giving you encouragement and to cast your cares on Go…

Don't be ashamed

Since my previous post, Walgreen's called me in October and offered me a Pharmacy Technician position! How amazing is that?!  I was so thankful to get hired by my intern site because I knew the patients, the daily routine, and they already felt like my work family.

When the time came to order my scrubs, there was no way I would wear their scrubs pants and I spoke up right away. I told my manager, and guess what? He sent out an email, and it was approved for me to wear a scrub skirt. Let's just say I was the first for them :) but I get so many compliments at the pharmacy! So many of my patients have come in and commented on how cute it was, how they haven't seen a scrub skirt, didn't even know they made them. And OH MY GOODNESS, the compliments on my hair! LOL!

Let this be a reminder for all the girls - all my friends - don't be afraid or ashamed of what (and Who) we stand for! You are a light! :)
