Why Did I Start a Blog?


A few months ago one of my friends sent me a text that said something like, “What do think about me starting a blog?” I wrote back and said I would absolutely support her if she did start one. That is when the seed was planted. I thought about how cool it would be to start a blog and to tell the world your story or give advice on certain subjects.

There were two things keeping me from starting one. 1. Who was I? I did not think I had anything to offer. Nor did I feel qualified! 2. Fear. Fear of the unknown. Fear of what others would think of me. Would they think I am weird for starting one?

Fast forward a few months when another one of my friends sent me an email. She was telling me her passions and asked what I was passionate about. I wrote back with this reply: “I really want to help mentor young girls in their walk with God and just make a difference. I want to use my testimony to help young girls have hope. Along with that, I want people to know and understand that they are loved and beautiful.” When I saw that on my screen in front of me I knew I couldn’t keep that passion and zeal inside of me, so I started praying and asking God to use me!

A month later is when God put it on my heart to start a blog. I immediately started thinking of ideas, talking with my family, and of course talking to God. With all that being said, I hope you can get two things out of this:

1. You never know what God can use you for! I never would in a million years thought I would be sitting here today typing this out!

2. Don’t be afraid to step out and get out of your comfort zone. Trust God and He will lead you (Philippians 1:6).

See you in two Saturdays!
