Please pray for Sally. She is fighting cancer, she is a wife and a mother of 3. She is a lover of Christ and she is finding such joy and faithfulness and hope through that.
Pray thanking God for her heart that loves Him, pray that she’ll keep finding joy in Him and remain faithful and pray if it’s His will that she will be healed. Pray also for comfort for her family and that they find joy and strength in God as well.

This is an incredible sermon that really sums up Christianity.
It’s so beautiful and such a great reminder for all Christians and if you’re not a Christian yet then it sums up our faith so wonderfully.
Praise God, He is good!
So in church my pastor said something that I never really thought about.
He talked specifically about how scales can be a false god. You go worship the scale every day by weighing yourself and then you let the scale’s answer determine your worth. You let the scale tell you who you are.
I’ve realized that my body image and my weight have been false gods in my life.
When you accept Christ, God frees you from the false gods so you can worship the true God.
False gods like scales are BAD gods! They tell you you’re unworthy and useless.
The true God is perfect as good and He died for you and has a plan for your life. He will tell you who you really are, not based on looks or weight or anything else!
i would love to pray for you for this <3 no prayer is too big or too small for God :)
This is what nutrition majors do in lab! Roasted veggie brown rice pasta and spinach salad with slivered walnuts and craisins!
It’s been a while since I’ve posted!
I’m starting a new blog that’s gonna focus on food and nutrition and health and solely that stuff and that blog is healthymeetcollege.tumblr.com.
This blog has been kind of going in the direction more of just my life and what God’s been doing in my life with occasional food post and prayer request haha so it will continue to be about that! So thank you so much to all my followers that take time to read that stuff about my life!
So lately a few things God’s been doing in my life:
1) He opened the door for some awesome discussions over my spring break with my mom and two friends that aren’t questions. I was able to answer some of their questions and hopefully make them feel better about some things holding them back from accepting Christ. It’s so important to remember that you don’t have to have it all figured out before you come to Christ- you come to Him and He helps you figure it out!
Please just pray that those opportunities for discussions continue and bear fruit!
2) Over break I was able to shadow 2 different dietitians and if I didn’t know before I definitely know that that is what I wanna do! With one of the dietitians we taught two cooking classes for kids and they were just so cute and it was so much fun!
3) God has really blessed me with this boy in my life! I just pray that He helps me because I’m terrible at relationships but I know I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Phil 4:13) and He’ll help me be a better, more loving girlfriend!
4) I locked myself out of my room and the nice RA decided not to charge me the $25 lockout fee. Nice people are the best!
I had a talk with 2 of my best friends about religion and God and Jesus and they both said they want to have a relationship with Jesus! I was so happy. God gave me the courage I needed to open up to them about my relationship with God and how to have a relationship with Him yourself and this is a huge step of spiritual growth and just GOD IS AMAZING.
Breakfast: BUCKWHEAT PANCAKES! woooo these were so yummy. the batter was grey which was weird. they have a nutty flavor, not like plain pancakes but they were super good and suuuuuper fluffy!
Dinner: Chicken waaaangs, roasted brussels sprouts, spaghetti squash, and polenta aka my latest obsession.
HI GUYS I ATE A DONUT.
I got the Vitacost brand gluten enzyme pills and took 4 of them and tried the mint oreo donut from dunkin.
The donut was eh but I CAN EAT DONUTS AGAIN. I did feel the symptoms a little bit, I didn’t feel 100% but the symptoms were definitely not as severe as they normally would be and they didn’t last as long.
Moral of the story: the gluten enzyme pills work, I wouldn’t use them to cheat every day but every once in a while it’s super awesome to know that I can have something “normal”!
God is so awesome for getting me home safely tonight! I just pray that I can be light to family over this spring break! Please pray for that (:
And I’m so happy I found my Mac extension cord! It’s a small thing but I really felt God direct me to look somewhere I’d already looked by behold there it was! He’s too cool!
Also, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bVAoVlFYf0 this is hysterical.
Just wanted to share these 2 short videos that were really enlightening to me! One is about prayer and one is about faith vs. works. They’re both great!
God has blessed me so much in my life lately, so much so that if I were to post a “good things about today” it’d be practically a novel! Praise the Lord He is great!
April is a mother of a 9 and 14 year old and she has leukemia and pneumonia. Please pray for God’s healing power to be at work in her and pray for her family that they’ll look to God’s strength in this time!
As always, please feel free to send any prayer requests my way.
So recently I’ve had some people that I’ve known for a long time ask me things like “why are you so religious all of a sudden?” and “are you really religious?” so I wanted to kind of put this out there to clear things up.
I posted this on my facebook today and wanted to post it here too:
I don’t consider myself a religious person, I love Jesus, but I’m not religious. I don’t follow a strict set of religious guidelines and rules. I’m not trying to prove that I’m good enough or moral enough or anything enough to be a Christian. All I have is a personal relationship with God, and it’s the most amazing thing in the world.
I decided to accept Jesus into my life when I realized that no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t be good enough or “religious” enough to earn a relationship with God. I’m not good enough or strong enough or anything enough on my own. The amazing this is that Jesus is good enough to do all the work for me, I don’t have to be good enough because He is.
To feel so loved by the God of the world is the most amazing feeling, it’s given me a completely new outlook on life. I’m free from constantly worrying about other people’s opinions or problems with me because I know that God’s opinion is the one that matters. I’m free from trying to be good enough because I know that I’m not good enough because God loves me anyway. I’m free from getting too stressed or upset with the hard things in life because my hope is in a God that is good all the time and there for me all the time, no matter what crazy things I’m dealing with in life.
This isn’t a religion, it’s a journey, a journey of getting closer to the God who made me. It’s been the most wonderful and joyful and freeing experience of my life.
So to answer the questions, I’m not super religious, I didn’t turn into a crazy religious nut all of a sudden, I wasn’t brainwashed or anything. I’m just coming to realize where my true hope and love is and that’s God.
