When I “don’t feel like it.”

In our last post, we got into the subject of priorities and how we tend to make excuses to not do things because we’re “too busy.” I was recently talking the blog over with a friend and they made a really good observation that I wanted to share with you ladies this week.

How is it that we’re never to busy to do the things that we actually want to do?

Have you ever noticed that when you want to do something, you’ll make the time for it? I don’t know about you, but usually when I don’t want to make the time to do something, it’s not ALWAYS because I’m too busy. Sometimes, I just don’t feel like it. Continue reading

When I’m “too busy”

Hey girls! I know, I know… you’re all probably wondering why there were no new blog posts the past few weeks. In fact, I have even been slacking on updating the TCG facebook page. To be completely honest, there probably wouldn’t have even been a post for tonight if I hadn’t forced myself to sit down and write one. *Gasp!*

So I sat on my bed and opened my laptop and began to think on what I should write to you ladies about. Truth be told, I couldn’t think of anything. Until a little voice inside my head told me to give up because I was too busy to write a blog tonight anyway. And then… it happened. Inspiration began to stir inside my mind. It was as if the clouds parted and the sun broke through as God’s voice began to speak, giving me an incredible word for you today…. Continue reading

Shine Bright.

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

The Three P’s!

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

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

The Heart of Forgiveness

The Heart of Forgiveness

Forgiveness. A lot of people think they know what this is. But the truth of the matter is, forgiveness can be twisted into a very selfish thing. It has long been argued that forgiveness is a choice we all make in our lives to help ‘us’ move on. But are we truly forgiving the other person? Or are we saying that we forgive the other person so that we feel complacent. Continue reading

Welcome!!

Hello girls! Welcome to the launch of our brand new website! We are SO excited about what God is doing here at That Christian Girl. God placed this dream on my heart early in October 2012. Within a few days of answering that call, God blessed me with a few other girls who had the same passion and desire as I do. Between texting and facebook, we had compiled a list of some amazing ideas for TCG! I am so excited to share them with you!!

Let me just say that this dream isn’t about me. It’s for ALL of us. It’s about us going through life together.

I pray that this project inspires you, encourages you, makes you laugh, makes you cry, and spreads some joy on your day.

Be blessed Christian Girl!

Much love,
Kristina and the TCG team<3
