So I go to Public High School in New South Wales, Australia and until this year I loved to study science. I loved to see all reactions, the photos of what lay beyond the boundaries of the Earth and most of all I loved to marvel over God's great, intricate creation.Now I wasn't a fool and I disagreed with somethings the teacher said and would often be the cause of much eye rolling among my class mates as I would engage the teacher in a debate on just about every day - I won most because of my…Continue
I have always been a proud person, the proudest person I knew. I would feel I was weak whenever I wasn't the top of the class or be perfect in everyone's eyes. People would say stuff about me like; "not even 100% would be good enough for her". I would have break downs regularly due to stress but to have someone's help was of course out of the question because I knew they wouldn't be able to help. Since reading step one I know that I was so stupid to not look to God to be able to 'produce…Continue
I recently went to a Christian summer camp and i expected to make tons of new christian friends. Like, 20 or more friends. But what happened? There was 101 kids there. I made 3 friends. More like 2 friends cuz one of them wasn't really Christian. Which is what i mean when i say faking it out. One minute, my two friends and i were sitting in the camp dining hall, the next minute, we hear the f-word float from across the room. Woah. What just happened? There were 101 people there. I'd say only…Continue
I LOVE photography! I think its because you can make something so simple into something beautiful and creative. It can be such a small thing, that, when you go up to look at it with the naked eye, it's not impressive at all. But when you grab the lens and zoom in, you can't believe how beautiful ____ (insert "unimpressive small thing here"), is! It makes you appreciate it even more! If you've seen Soul Surfer, there is a scene where Carrie Underwood, the youth group leader, puts pictures in…Continue
I finished reading a book the other day called Sun Stand Still. It is a very good book. Anyway, after I finished it, I felt called by God to start a Bible study for people at my school. I talked to my Dad about it and he said he would help my find material for it, and I'm going to talk to my Mom about it soon. So, I would appreciate it if you girls would pray for me. Thanks!
I have only really heard a really amazing Christian band that is really focused on glorifying God and not themselves, there name is Garage Hymnal and they are a Sydney based band that are AMAZING, especially live. Here is a link to one of my favorite songs of theirs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xzqpr9pcp0&feature=bf_next&list=PL1E94205A10159052
I recommend everyone…Continue
I have had the same, really good best friend forever really. This year though she has been doing a lot of stuff that really gets on my nerves. I had this party a couple months ago and even though I didn't want to invite her I did because we are friends and I figured we would get over it. We are both going to different high schools next year too so I have been trying to get to know other people that will be going to the same one as me. I have felt our friendship dying off and I'm not really…Continue
Hey. My friend Craig is an atheist and he is a really thick-headed person. I dont know what to do. I asked him why he is atheist and he told me, "People say God is there when you need him most but yet you hear about all these people who get sexually abused and all these people who get hurt." I want to tell him that good things happen to strong people and that God only gives you as much as you can handle but I just dont know if I should or if I should…Continue
Step one of the God Girl was just another piece of evidence that proved to me I need to stop running from the Lord. I need to hand my fears and insecurities to him in order to get over them, not keep them from him! The digging deeper aspect of the lesson included reading Romans for 7 days. As I started off with just chapters 1 and 2 I noticed some verses talking about circumcision and how it was more of a spiritual matter than a physical one. This spoke to me in a way that helped me conclude…Continue

In the bible, in many places, God tells us to be holy. Like in 1 Peter 1:2, it states that God chose us to live holy lives. And in Leviticus 11:44, God tells us to be holy because he is holy.
But if God tells us to be holy, and he chooses us to live holy lives, then holiness must be a pretty important thing.
So what does it mean to be holy? And how do we lives holy lives, the lives that God chose us to live?

Courage is most deffinitly a key element in our walk with Christ. It is sometimes hard to take a courageous step, it is hard to step out of our boundaries. But as a christan the Lord is calling us to be courageous. The Lord is calling us to step out of our boundaries. It is scary sometimes because everyone desires to be accepted. But we need to trust God with our whole heart. And truly the only opinion that matters it the oppinion of God, the most loving and…Continue

Why do we, humans, bother judging people? It is not right. Do you know why?
In Ephesians 2:1-6 says, "As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sings, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of the world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. All of us also lived amount them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature and following it's desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by…Continue

1. Recognize: The is the step where we see that we've sinned and we're out of a relationship with God.
2. Repent: When we agree with God about our sin and confess to him
3. Rethrone: The mental action of putting Christ back in the center of our lives, because sin pushes him out.
4. Replace: Understanding that we've go to put something else there or the sin comes right back. Working on a memory verse that deals with sin, or even getting your mind busy with prayer or good…Continue
Ok. I have no idea what to do. I have never been into clubbing before, and non Christian music drives me nuts. And I do NOT drink because its so disgusting! But for around 2 years now, I have been invited to clubs. Today, the topic of clubbing came up twice. My brother wants to go clubbing for his 22nd birthday in 2 weeks (not a Christian) and a friend of mine invited me to a club tonight but I had other plans. And I remember times before I hear about clubbing, and I want to go. I know that…Continue
I just joined yesterday. I barely have enough time to write this, but I just really needed to say this because it's been upsetting me so, so much. I joined because I want to get closer to God, I need to!...On here I read lots of cute posts, etc. There's a lot of posts on purity rings and waiting for the right guy. Well, before I really knew christ well, I was in a relationship with this older guy. It was bad. He made me do, bad sexual things, and would smack me around. It was like that for…Continue
Boys are such a big deal in a girl's life, especially our age. Our world tells us to date and to hook up with anyone you feel attracted to. They treat it just like eating...nothing special. Nothing important. No big deal.
The world says date who you want. Be yourself.
But when we accepted Christ into our hearts, or when you will, we died to self and surrendered everything to him. And that means who we date.
It's so hard to like a boy and know it's not good for you or in…Continue
