I am so excited to share this book review!!  I've been following GirlDefined for a few years now and have enjoyed every book they have published and have grown and been encouraged so much by their ministry.  I signed up to be apart of their launch team for their new devotional and was so beyond excited to be chosen!  This journey has been so exciting and fun and I'm so glad I got a chance to be a part of it! I love Kristin and Bethany’s heart for the Lord.   They’re desire to put Him above all else in their lives and to share and encourage girls and young women to do the same.   The thing that first stood out to me as I began to read their Shine Bright Devotional was this line in their intro- “just keep in mind that this devotional isn’t intended to replace time in God’s word each day; it’s meant to supplement it.” I think this is so important to realize as we start each new devotional or christian book.   We are meant to read God’s word and be in daily fellowship with Him.   T

Learners Permit

Hello everyone,
I just wanted to send a post to tell everyone that I got my learners permit on Friday, (6-28-13)!  I took the test and was so very thankful that I passed, missing only three of the 46 or something like that questions!
I could hardly believe it...I was doing drivers Ed and felt pretty confident about the info at the time being but then I finished it and we made an appointment to take the test but we didn't end up going in until like two weeks. So on Monday I looked at my drivers Ed practice test and realized that I couldn't remember most of it and I felt really discouraged. (They ask really hard question, even my mom was like, what?)  And so of course all week I was like great I am going to mess up and have to take the test again and again. (My mom tried to encourage me by saying that she had to take it three times :)
I studied really hard that week and especially Thursday.  I spent most of the time reading the book-let, (You can ask Ethan about that).  And my head really hurt that night.  And so Thursday night I felt like I knew a lot of the info but I still kept thinking of failing and all the disappointments.
I had prayed all week that God would prepare my heart, I prayed that I would pass but if I did fail I prayed that He would allow me to trust Him knowing that He has a plan for everything in my life.
My mom knew how I was filling and she encourage me a lot and my dad was confident in me the whole time! :)
So by Friday I was nervous but I felt God comforting me.
The DMV is crazy and I had never been in there before.  We had to wait in line to get a number before we were even helped.  And the whole time I am freaking out because I am dreading the test part. And then I had to wait in line to get my picture taken!  So finally an hour and ten minutes later I was taking the test.
Those questions were really hard, each option was so similar that I kept doubting myself.  My head started hurting and I was just done so I went in line to get my results, sure that I was going to fail.  (I need to learn not to doubt all the time)
I couldn't believe that I only got three wrong!  I am so excited!  And nervous.
I have not driven yet, I can't start driving until I have had six hours of driving with an instructor.  But my dad said he is going to take me out before so that I know what I am doing before I go with someone I don't know!
But anyways, Thank you to those who were praying for me!  I know I could not have done any of it without the Lords strength! 


  1. This is so crazy, I cannot believe you're a driver now (almost) :) how exciting!! Congratulaions! Be careful out there!

  2. That's so awesome! Funny thing, I got exactly 3 wrong too. :)
