For King & Country

A few posts ago I told you all about one of my biggest role models, Moriah Peters. A month ago she got married which was very exciting for me and all of her fans. I knew she was marrying a Australian, named Joel, from another Christian Band one of my friends had told me about.
Little did I know that that band would be at a Youth Evangelism Conference I was going to last weekend.

The band is called, as you may have guessed from this post title, for King & Country. They are incredibly talented and their music is so powerful. I got to see them warm up and then got to meet Joel after the concert. He was very personable and visited with me for a couple minutes as he signed my new sweatshirt and took a picture with me. I told him, "The concert was great tonight. I am huge fan of your wife, which is actually how I found out about you." and he said "Moriah Peters, eh?". He was so nice and it was really a blessing to meet him.

Joel and his younger brother, Luke, started this band although Luke was not able to be at the concert because he is sick and in the hospital right now with digestive problems. Please be praying for Luke and his family. 

When I was on the way home from the conference I looked up the music video to one of my favorite songs of theirs called Proof of Your Love. It is a really powerful video that impacted me deeply. Please take a couple minutes to watch this video.

 When we speak up for Christ and share His love we can make a difference. Contrary to what some people believe with Christ we have the power to make an impact where we are, to rise up from the bonds that hold us.

Have a blessed day!

The Lord of the Rings, Narnia and the Scarlet Thread by Francine Rivers. My favorite books change often though.

Beautiful Day

Hello my Lovelies,

  I hope you are all doing well.  Things have been quite busy around my house as we start to wrap up summer and get ready for the new school year.

Speaking of the school year I got a new backpack (pictured below) which I am pretty excited about. It was the last one like it at Target, shoved behind the other backpacks. 

I have really been trying to enjoy this last little bit of summer, eating all the watermelon I can hold and swimming as much as this busy life allows me to. Also I have enjoyed spending time with my family, I have truly been blessed with wonderful parents and a spunky, beautiful little sister. 

Now I would like to share some of my new favorite songs. 

"Oh How I Need You" by All Sons & Daughters 
This song has really become one of my very favorite songs and is a reminder to just cry out to God that I need Him and depend on Him alone for my strength. He has a great plan for me, I just need to remind myself that He is the only thing I should be focusing on. 

"Crystalize" by Lindsey Stirling 
I just love the sound of this song

"Have You Ever" by Rhett and Link
I am posting this song because it is just too funny not to share.

Now that you are most likely laughing from that last video I must say my farewells.
I hope you have a wonderful day. God Bless You!


Charlie the Bunny

Today I helped save a bunny from the entry to my Grandma's crawl space under her house.  The poor little guy was in a corner scared to death.  It looked like two of them had gotten down there but the other one had died.  He was a very sweet little rabbit who is now free to go wherever he pleases. Have a nice life, Charlie.

Moriah Peters

Moriah Peters is one of my absolute favorite artists. Her music has made a huge impact on my life, it reminds me to depend on Jesus for my fulfillment. "I have searched to find, the meaning of my life. Something that would fill my empty soul... I choose Jesus, I choose Jesus, the One who first chose me"

I also love the style of her music.

I encourage you to listen to the words on these videos

This last one is not her original song but I just really love it. This video has Cooper Green playing guitar and singing harmony, whom I also like.
