And This is What I Decided About Grad School...

If you've been reading (or know me personally), you know I've been faced with a very hard decision to make this month.  And I guess I kinda brought it on myself haha.
See, I decided at some point that maybe I'd try to go to graduate school.  I don't remember when, because it was never something I was really interested in, but all of a sudden I was signing up to take the GRE and looking at graduate programs on the Appalachian State website.
See, I have always had my heart kinda set on Appalachian, but at the same time, High Point University was just irresistible (and rightfully so).  So I decided that I'd finish undergrad at HPU and then go to App.
[I should add here that my mother told me I had to go to graduate school, so I didn't really have much of a choice haha. Besides, I wasn't ready to be done with school when the time came to graduate :) ]
Anyway, I decided sometime this past year that I wasn't ready to graduate from HPU, and got the idea to …


Zachary's BIRTHDAY!!!


What Have I Been Up To?

Lately I've been very busy, considering it's SUMMER and I thought I'd be relaxing.  But that's okay - I've been having TONS of fun! I thoroughly enjoyed the 4th of July with my friends and family, Greensboro Grasshoppers baseball game with friends, had a blast doggie-sitting for one of the cutest puppies ever, I've had sleepovers, cooled off in the pool, worked, crafted, saw the X-Factor (twice!!!), watched TV for hours with Granny while she's recovering from surgery, played at the lake, spent quality sister time with Ashley, and spent quality time with great friends. 

And during all of this, I've been confused and thinking hard about where I want to go to graduate school - Appalachian or High Point.

But here are my last few weeks in pictures!!

A Little Help, Please!

So my BFF Chanelle Tyson is a wonderful writer, and a while back she wrote an awesome script. She is now living out the dream of a lifetime in Los Angeles by turning this script into a MOVIE! It's a film called Virgins for Life and it is about high school students who are dedicated to keeping their purity until marriage.  This film is really important to me because I am a firm believer in the fact that true love waits.  Chanelle and I and some of our other friends have had many conversations on this topic throughout the years, and Chanelle wanted to make a movie to share our beliefs with the world. 

[[If you want to know more about the film, here is the website:]]

And here are the links to the two trailers:

The movie is going to be so funny - full of jokes and wisecracks.  I LOVE comedies.  But it has also has a deeper meaning and lesson. And the cast looks INCREDIBLE. I person…

Vacation Bible School

Every year I help out with Vacation Bible School at church.  With the exception of maybe three years, I've been involved in VBS every year since I was 3.  It's something I love to be a part of because I believe it is such a precious and memorable time for the children.  I know it is for me, even now.  I can't help but get a little teary-eyed every year for some reason as I watch the kids sing and dance and learn about the Lord. 

This year, I helped in a third grade classroom and it was SO much fun! It was Ashley's first year as a non-student, since she's in middle school now, so she helped with the four year olds, and Zach helped the boys build rockets during craft time.  It was such a special week for all of us, and I hope the kids enjoyed it just as much as I did!

On Tuesday night, we had SIX children from our class decide that they wanted to accept Jesus as their Savior.  It was one ofthe most precious things I've ever witnessed.  I led them in prayer as they…
