Grace's Corner of the World: A Post to All the Girls Out There


Why do we care so much about what other people think? Why does it even matter? We are self-conscious about things that we don’t need to be self-conscious about. About how much we weigh, what our hair color is, what our eye color is, how tall or short we are, how we sound when we sing, our voice-pitch in general. . . why does it matter? What’s the point?
Listen to me when I say this: you are perfect just the way you are. As long as you are healthy, it really doesn’t matter how you think you look, because I can tell you that you are beautiful. How do I know that? Because God gave you that eye color. He gave you that skin color and that hair color and that body shape. He made you as tall as you are and He thinks you’re beautiful. In fact, He knows you’re beautiful. What do you think of that?
If that isn’t enough for you, then may I just say that, not only did God make you the way you are, but he wanted to make you in the first place? He looked at the earth and thought that we needed one of you.
So, next time you look in the mirror and think, “I’m not pretty enough” or “I’m not tall enough” or “I’m not skinny enough,” just remember that God wanted you, and he still wants you. You are special. You are gorgeous. Remember that always, because it makes God sad every time you say those things. It hurts Him and makes His heart ache.
Don’t tell yourself, or anyone else that you’re not beautiful. Because you are. You really, truly are. Keep remembering that through the hard days, and don’t forget to smile!

Question For You: What To Write?

Today, I actually have a question for you.
   I know, it's a bit odd.    The thing is, though I love writing blog posts, I've been struggling with what I should write. So I decided, "why not ask the people who are reading them?" Makes sense, right?    I've got a few subjects that I could write about, and I really want you to tell me the truth about what you enjoy reading most, and what you would enjoy seeing (whether I've written things like that before or not). Don't just read it and brush it off - give me your input!    Okay, here goes. I could write about . . .
1) My Books
   This is probably one of my favorites to write about, because it's what I'm the most passionate about (second to God, of course). This includes things like my Character Guest Posts, and anything else I happen to come up with. If you want things like this, give me specifics! Do you want to know about characters? Setting? Word count? Story line?
2) My Writing Process
   This is a b…

Grace's Corner of the World: Why We Won't Be Celebrating Halloween This Year/50th Post

To start off - THIS IS OFFICIALLY MY FIFTIETH POST!!! I'm so excited! Thank all of you for supporting me and reading my blogs, and know that I couldn't have gotten this far without every single one of you. I look forward to seeing you and talking to you more and more as I continue to write these posts!
And now onto "Why We Won't Be Celebrating Halloween This Year" . . .

A lot of Christians don't celebrate Halloween, and I respect their decision, but I, personally, LOVE Halloween. It's one of my absolute favorite holidays (besides Christmas, which obviously comes first because it's just so amazing). I mean, you get free candy and people don't look at you weird for putting on a costume. I could do a whole post about how weird the idea of Halloween is - I mean, all it is is that you aren't technically trespassing on someone's lawn when you go up to their door and bang on it, begging for sweets while dressed like some sort of fictional character…

Things I've Learned from Watching My Mom and Dad

I've learned a lot from watching my Mom and Dad's marriage. It's led me to know what I want to look for in a marriage, eventually, when I'm older, if I ever DO get married. Their marriage helps me know what a marriage is really about, and I couldn't thank them more for that.

You see, a lot of girls my age dream about marrying the perfect guy. Living in the perfect house. Having a lot of money and clothes and having a happy family and good, stable jobs. I'm not saying that that's a bad thing, but I think it's a bit unrealistic. It's not impossible, I suppose (other than the perfect guy, thing. Nobody's perfect! *Hannah Montana song now stuck in my head forever*), but in order to have all those things, you need to have a few others.

So, here's what I want for my future, if I ever get married.

Jesus. Not every marriage has Jesus, and a lot of them do okay without Him. But it's a lot harder, I think. Without Jesus, who do you have as your role …
