This post is nothing deep...I have taken Alexandra to several games this summer-and I have enjoyed practicing my photography skills for hours during the game. I find it challenging to take quality photos, since I am shooting over people's heads, the weather isn't always perfect, and sometimes things happen so quickly-you aren't ready for them. So, here are a few pics from the game today, and I hope to sometimes add more photos that I take every now and then (not necessarily sporting events...just the fun things I do or photos I take)...

Before You Meet Prince Charming...

Okay, I am sure the title of this post was an eye catcher! Am I right?

My mom bought this book a couple of weeks ago. I must say I was a bit skeptical when I saw the title, and saw what the book was written about. I have read books written on similar subjects, and really have not been impressed by many of them. She read it and told me that she loved it! I thought "ok, it must be okay...", I took a peek inside. I haven't read the whole book yet-but I would highly recommend it. It is actually geared towards girls in the 12-16 year range, but there is wisdom and insight that any one could glean from it.

I know so many girls and young women that are so anxious to get married, or have boyfriends, but sometimes-while desiring that "next wonderful thing" to happen, we miss out on so much that God has for us in the here and now. Also, in trying to "rush things along", we get into relationships that aren't the best for our hearts.

So, I would recommend this book to anyone...check it out!

This guide to radiant purity combines the thoughts and events in the life of a young princess with solid, clear teaching of Biblical convictions that young ladies today need to grasp. Through a captivating fairy tale, modern day examples, practical instruction and abundant humor, Sarah Mally challenges young ladies to turn to the Lord for fulfillment, to guard their hearts and minds, to identify and avoid the world’s thinking and to shine brightly in this generation.

This book offers biblical answers to everyday questions and deep life struggles. It includes many practical tips for girls such as how to guard your heart when you have a crush, being wise in Internet usage, how to strengthen relationships with parents, and how to use your single years wisely.
