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…

Dating at 28 vs Dating at 21

I was just thinking the other day. I (over) think quite often. Sometimes it's good because it causes reflection, and this reflection was good.

I never really thought about the fact that I might be dating at 28 years old. I was never, EVER in a rush to get married, but there was a time when I assumed I'd be married by now. Looking back, it's interesting to see how things have changed from the time I was 21 until now, and why it's a really good thing I am still dating at 28.

All people are different. One of my best friends met her husband at 14. I have friends in their 30s that aren't married. Each person and situation are unique.

With that being said, I know that personally, I would not have been ready for marriage at 21. Or 22. Or even 25.

Dating at 21 for me was kind of like "What can you do for me? How can you make ME happy?" At 28 I've realized it should be "What can we do for God? What will make Him happy? And how can I make YOU happy?"
I had…

The Reality of Sin

Yesterday I was blessed to sit through THREE amazing church services. Lately, I feel like I really need to absorb as much of the Word as I can on Sundays in order to thrive through the week. It is so easy to get caught up in the stress of daily life, and I've found that the best way to combat that is to be poured into through spiritual teaching. I can't pour into my students or my family or my friends or my middle school girls on Wednesday nights if I'm not constantly growing and learning. 

It's also really cool / interesting to sit at different churches with entirely different groups of people and hear the Word presented in different ways.

Different churches appeal more to families or young people or older people for different reasons.

One thing I realized as I sat in my home church yesterday morning (OakView Baptist) is that although we don't have the lights and the music and coffee, we do hear the Word in a way that really gets deep into your soul.

It's a trend …
