    Have you ever tried to define yourself? I mean really truly define yourself. Its nearly impossible. I’ve made list upon lists about ‘who I am’, but at the end of the day its all a list of adjectives. Really, who I am is a lot more then adjectives. Sure, I’m outgoing and loud. But I am so much more then that. I am waking up at noon on a Sunday. Short shorts in the middle of winter with the heat up to 78. Messy buns. I am macadamia nut cookie coffee. I am thousands of lost bobby pins carelessly left every where. I am my favorite green sweat shirt. I am a book and a windowsill on a lazy Saturday. I’m eating millions of goldfish with Michele. I’m flipping through fashion magazines with Kaitlyn. I’m karaoke with Gabby on a Friday night. I’m copying homework with Breanna on a Monday morning. I’m texting Hannah at all hours. I’m the fifth chair back in fourth hour, laughing with my friends, I am the things I do. The things I do make me who I am. Sitting around a crying all day..that doesn’t make me a very good person. So I try not to do it.
    But most importantly, I am a follower of Christ.

  1. I don't know how necessarily 'Christian' it is, mostly it is just my feelings, things I find funny, and things I think are pretty. alaskaayoungg.tumblr.com
  2. Hey y'all! I am a Christian, however I am relatively new to exploring it more so my questions seem endless. This is going to sound so silly, please don't judge, but how do you pray...or speak with Jesus. I've read that there is a difference, I'm not sure where but I've read that a prayer is a request for something and speaking with Jesus is just telling him things. I don't know. I was wondering if any of you could clear this up for me? I really want to pray/speak with Jesus, but I feel ridiculous every time I try..what do I say? How do I say it? That sort of thing. Thanks.
  3. Ibuprofen is also a quite harmful drug when taken too often! Because of my own cramps, I took way to many and it stripped my stomach lining. Now I have the blessing of gastritis! Be careful with any pain killers.
  4. Hi Ade! What an interesting name! Would it happen to be short for Adelaide?
  5. Gracias senor! Can't wait to be apart of the community!
  6. hai dere! How you doooin'? (:
  7. Lovely to meet you too! How are you?
  8. It was stupidity that happened very late at night actually! For some reason my mind mixed up nationality and denomination! Geesh, that's embarrassing! In actuality I am still trying to figure out what my denomination is and which one best fits my beliefs!
  9. My personal belief, is that there is no such thing as marriage in heaven as God himself describes it as a last resort if you simply cannot keep yourself pure. "But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn." 1 Corinthians 7:9 King James
  10. Ah yes, like you could move a mountain if you truly believed you could, or walk on water. It's a great test of fate nonetheless and it indulged my fascination for the 'supernatural' side of Christianity.
  11. Not trolling at all! And I completely understand how it seems very untrue! It sounded crazy to me when I first heard it! But it truly worked for me, I'd suggest it! I'm actually kind of new to all of this bible stuff..so no, I wouldn't say I'm a 'KJV onlyist', in fact, I would love to know your personal preference! -Lauren:P:P
  12. Ezekiel 16:6 (KJV) 6 And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live. I have just recently discovered this bible verse and I don't know if this bible verse has been brought to attention here or not, but I find it fascinating. My mother told me about it when she was talking about her own grandmother and how she used to use it, apparently it always worked for her. Of course this made me be ultra curious so the next time I got a nosebleed (which happens embarrassingly often) I used it. Now the websites I had found it on had told me to say it three times and to truly believe it, so thats what I did. Miraculously, it worked. I was stunned, it was the closest thing I have ever seen to a 'sign' that God exists in my life. Has it worked for any of you? If not, will you use it the next time you're bleeding?
  13. Blue and yellow Nirvana teeshirt Hot pink shorts Black head band About a zillion string, friendship bracelets And slippers Obviously, I'm still in pajamas.
  14. I worry that no matter what I do, I will never get over him. I worry that everyone will find out what happened with me and him. I worry that my friends aren't really my friends. I worry that I will never meet someone who makes me as happy as he did. I worry that I will never be a 'good' christian. I worry that I have already done something unforgivable in God's eyes.
  15. Hi everyone! My name is Lauren, I'm 13 years old and I have just recently started devoting my life to Christ. Ever since I was a little girl I was told I was a Christian, we didn't go to church often but we often spoke about Christ in the home. Naturally, as I started to grow up I began to question the religion I was 'forced' into, as most of us do. I went through a long stage of depression where I denied Christ as my lord and savior, I shut him out completely and just recently I was put on medication to help me with my depression. As well as helping my depression, it also helped my faith. I've been looking more into God, and doing my own research to help me understand the bigger picture. Really, I'm just looking for a group who can understand and learn with me, I'm hoping this is the place for me. Well, theres my biblical journey so far, right now its pretty short but I hope for it to grow as large as possible. If y'all have any advice for me regarding my journey in finding Christ again, please let me know! Suggest authors, movies, pastors who's work I can watch online. All of it is welcome! And please message me, I would love to get to know some of you! :wub::wub: Lauren(:
