An amazing, amazing book! One of my top 3 favorite books of all time. A must-read for EVERY Christian teen girl.

Jesus Freaks by DC Talk
Convicting stories of real-life Christians- both now and then, old and young, rich and poor- who gave their all for Christ.

Do Hard Things by Alex and Brett Harris
A book that every teen should read! Written by two teens, it offers real-life encouragement for young people today seeking to live above the world's standards.

Hearts of Fire by Voice of the Martyrs 
Another collection of stories featuring eight brave women who dedicated their lives to serving Jesus Christ, no matter what.

Things I Would Not Want To Live Without

Today I have a rather hard assignment. I have to list three things that are luxuries that I would not want to live without. So here we go. 

1. Cameras

Yeah, I know you don't really have to have cameras in this world, but I am SO happy to have mine. Taking photos is pretty much my favorite thing in the world other then writing so far as hobby's go. 

2. Laptops 

Seriously, I can write on them, listen to music, post on my blog, view all my photos and communicate with my friends. It just doesn't get much better then that. I love having a laptop to use. Such as the one I am typing this post on. ;D

3. Chapstick

Yeah, this one seems rather silly, doesn't it? But I love chapstick. I use it a lot and trying out new brands is super fun. This year a friend of mine got me my first thing of EOS chapstick and I LOVE it. 

So, what are some of your favorite luxury's? 


My Favorite Place For Vacation

Well, one of my favorite vacations I ever went on was to Colorado. I have not had the pleasure of going back yet, but I will be soon. 
The mountains are so relaxing, and the views unbeatable. True, I was seven last time I went, so I was not able to really appreciate a lot of it, but it was still awesome. Living in Texas does not give me many opportunity's to see mountains, so they are incredible to me. 
Though to me, getting out anywhere, seeing new things, and visiting new places is awesome. Getting out gives me a new perspective on what I left behind and makes me eager to get back to it so I can fully appreciate it like I never have before.

What is your favorite place to vacation?
