Yes, I did take a month hiatus from writing here on That Christian Girl. And no, I do not plan on doing that again… EVER. This week’s post is a day early considering today is the 1st of the year and I figured it’d be appropriate to start the year off with sharing some of the vision I have for our little community. 🙂 Continue reading
In exactly one week on October 10th, That Christian Girl will be 1 year old!! Girls, I am so grateful with how far God has brought this project. My goal and dream when I started this project was to inspire young women all over the world to live for Jesus. Whether it be through personal testimonies, the Word, prayer, or song… I never dreamed it would grow this much so fast! Continue reading
Summer is quickly coming to an end and schools are opening again. A time of football games, exams, homework, projects, band practice… With all this hustle and bustle we can quickly be consumed by the everyday demands of life. It’s easy to forget all the great things that happened during summer break. It’s easy to forget that commitment you made to God at your youth camp. It’s easy to forget how you were able to bless others through your missions trip. Continue reading
In today’s society, I feel like there’s so much pressure on women. There’s pressure on how to act, how to dress, how to look, how to be a better mom, how to be a better wife, how to be a better…. you fill in the blank. I know so many women who are stressed daily with all the different demands of life calling out to them all at once. It’s easy to get caught up in it all and lose your focus. Here’s what I have to say to you: Continue reading
Marriage – A Permanent Covenant
by Jessica Shaffer
I felt the need to share my opinion after reading and experiencing some of life’s obstacles. I am a huge advocate of implementing one’s faith into their relationship, and in turn letting God be the foundation of a blossoming marriage. To say that “marriage,” is an easy institution is a fallacy. Marriage is an intense, and sometimes capricious commitment that involves many hours of pruning, up keep, and compromise. After six years of marriage, I can honestly say that I’ve given it my all – and in turn it has been the most rewarding experience of my life. Continue reading
I chose to tuck the pain away,
And save it for a rainy day.
Now nothing is really going my way.
I didn’t listen when I heard Him say,
“Let me shine my light on it now,
It doesn’t help to hide it anyhow.”
Even though I had made a vow,
I didn’t plan on my flesh, having to bow. Continue reading
My first bike had one gear. Whether I was going fast or slow, uphill or downhill, that gear did everything. My next bike had three gears: one for level surfaces, one for going uphill, and one for going downhill. My third bike had ten gears, allowing me an even broader range of choices. Even though my last bike had several gears to choose from, I didn’t use all of them every time I rode. Some were best suited for starting and climbing, others were reserved for gaining speed, and others were best for a leisurely pace. But the thing about gears is this: Even though I wasn’t using all of them at the time, it didn’t mean I would never need them. Continue reading
