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 personally know one of the lead actresses, Nina Concepcion, and she is awesome. So funny. I absolutely cannot wait to see this movie, and hope to be in Los Angeles for part of the filming.

Speaking of filming, the filming can only continue if Chanelle and her crew get more donations! It does take lots of money to make a movie, unfortunately. So if you want to donate some money to a good cause, even if it's a dollar, please visit this website. It would mean so much to all of us!!!

There really aren't enough Christian films out there that are mainstreamed and shown alongside secular films. Christian films do not get the attention or respect that they deserve, and that is an issue that we would like to work on. Please help us to reach our goals!

Thank you so much!

SSP for Warby Parker!

A couple years ago a friend told me about this really trendy site where she ordered her eyeglasses. I had asked her where she got such cute eyewear and her answer was  "Warby Parker!"
I went to the website and was overwhelmed by all the choices! Not only were the glasses trendy, but there were many traditional looks, and awesome colorful frames as well. There were countless options for both men and women, in prescription glasses, non-prescription, AND sunglasses!
I feel like sporting glasses rather than contacts has made a comeback in a big way, and now glasses are an accessory and make a bold statement to complete your look in addition to helping you see.
If you order from WP, you can have FIVE pairs sent to you if the glasses are "available for try-on" before you actually buy them! I have a friend who did this, and it was so easy and fun. I feel like many times, people are wary of ordering frames online since they can't try them on and see how they look, but Warb…

Riches I Need Not, Nor Man's Empty Praise

I haven't written anything on here since MARCH. ...not anything from my own spiritual journey. I've done promotions for two companies and that's all I've posted. I am realizing that when I write, I am a better person. I can't believe I haven't written on here in seven months. It makes me sad. I've felt a void!

Ironically, though, what I came here to write is the same topic as what I last posted about - what others think. I found a version of "Be Thou My Vision" that I really love about a month ago, so it's been on repeat. As I'm busy with everything going on in life, I have to constantly remind myself to keep my eyes set on Christ. The line that has stuck out to me the most over the past month is
"Riches I need not, nor man's empty praise."

I'm teaching 9th and 11th grade this semester. In both classes we are reading books set in the Great Depression. We've had discussions (sometimes debates) about how money can't …

Fix My Eyes on You

On the day I called You answered me And the hope in my soul increased I lift my hands And turn my eyes To the God who heals my heart And gives me peace
You are more than My words could ever say You are Lord over all Over all of my days I will see this season through I will fix my eyes on You Only You ~Hillsong
I heard this song for the first time the other day when I was really anxious about some stuff during my planning period at work. I didn't feel good and my mind was a little overwhelmed.  During those times when my mind is so boggled, it's hard to just sit back and have peace.  During those tumultuous times when it seems like everything is going the opposite of what you'd planned and everything seems to spin out of control, it's hard to remember that God, the Creator of all being, is in control. During those times of change and confusion, it's hard to trust that everything is working out just the way God has planned it to. During those times when life's just p…
