If you haven’t heard about Tommy Nelson’s Brave Girls yet, start by reading their letter to you HERE!
Let’s just say it’s all by God’s grace that I’m here. And I’m not just saying that because of my name. If it had been left up to me, I’d still be in my old hometown of Perkasie, Pennsylvania. We’re talking beautiful green hills and parks on every street corner. I was born there, and I knew everybody (and everybody knew me) . . .
And then we moved. I thought life was over. I wanted my old friends and old world back, and I was pretty stubborn and loud about it.
In my hometown, my family and I didn’t talk about God much. But once we moved here, we started going to this church, and there were some girls in the youth group who were . . . nice. More than nice, really. They were cool. They liked to do fun stuff and all, but they also weren’t afraid to talk about things that matter—like what we’re supposed to do with our lives. I used to ask myself that question sometimes, like when I was walking through the woods by my house or listening to my music. These girls were able to show me the answer in the Bible. I always knew there had to be a God who made all those beautiful things. Now I’m beginning to know who He is, thanks to God Himself, those girls, my church, and, yes, even my parents who moved me here.
Wanna know something else kind of funny? The only time I ever sang back in Pennsylvania was in my shower at home. I loved it, but I was afraid to sing in public. Now I’m in the choir at church, and I’m singing about God to anybody who’ll listen!
P.S. – Next Wednesday, another one of our friends, Glory, will be on the blog! She is the MOST fashionable girl I know and loves to find the beauty in everything, even when it isn’t easy. The other girls and I were so glad we could be there to help her see God’s goodness when her life at home was, well… not so pretty.
