- The Lord has always been and will always be completely trustworthy. You can always trust in His plans for you, and know that they are for your good, even if it doesn't always seem like it.
- God's plans for you are and will always be better than you could ever imagine, hope for, or plan for yourself.
Just trust in Him-He will never let you down!

Wow, what a great question! To be honest, I didn't get the idea until back in June, but the Lord began working in my heart to draw me and lead me to start a blog like this back around this time last year. For Christmas last year, I received Anna Sofia and Elizabeth Botkin's outstanding book, So Much More, from my parents. I read it, and the Lord radically changed my convictions in a lot of areas through the reading of that book. I began to look at the culture around me through different eyes, and began to see how so many many young women my age were being influenced by the horrible and detrimental heresies of feminism. The Lord began to show me the huge need of godly and feminine influences for these such ladies. It was then (back in June, or so) that I began to feel like the Lord was wanting me to begin a blog, one that would be an encouragement and strength for those ladies who have likeminded convictions, and also an edification for those ladies who have feministic beliefs. I didn't actually begin the blog, though, until August 12th.
Who is your favorite woman in the Bible?
Wow, can I only choose one?! That's going to be hard! :) If I could only choose one, I would have to say Mary, our Lord's mother. More than likely, she was around my age(15), when she became pregnant. Because she was unmarried, to be found pregnant (especially since she was betrothed) would have meant utter disgrace. She would have been looked down upon, ridiculed, and would have been the object of severe disdain and scrutiny. People would have criticized her and distrusted her. And, despite all this, she joyfully and happily submitted to her Lord's will and willingly and wholeheartedly trusted in her Master's plan. She knew that the people around her would look down upon her with disdain, yet she joyfully said, "Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word." What an example! I desire to be more like her in my own heart and life. All too often, I worry over things and don't trust fully in the Lord as I ought.
