About Me

About Me
For me, Devoted Daughter started out as a kind of copy-cat blog when I was 13.  I saw other gals with really cute blogs and lots of followers, and I decided that's what I wanted - so I guess you could say that I started this project out on the wrong foot - blogging about a bunch of nothings with some "encouragement posts" sprinkled in here and there for the first few years.  
Then it happened!  I reached the crossroads in my life where I had to decide if I really believed what I said I believed, and if I did, then I wanted to become serious about it. 
That being said, and crossroads being crossed (by God's grace), here is a little about me now:

~ *If I'm perfectly honest - Jesus still isn't all he should be to me, but it is by his grace alone that I am saved and trying to commit every aspect of my life to him now.

*I love traveling, critters, and living the country life!

*I love people with a sense of humor, which is the epitome of my whole family  ;)

*I'm a creative wanna-be.  I like designing new things, making old things work, photography, editing and producing short films, and I guess all such creativity!  :) 

*Believe it or not, writing isn't one of my most favorite things to do, but I'm hoping that God can use my writings every Tuesday to somehow reach outside of my little home and encourage and challenge others.

*Coffee and Tea....meh...I could do without.  
{I may lose some friends over that one}

*SPRING and Autumn are the best out of all of the seasons when weather is not too hot and not too cold.

*I've lived in and visited many places, but no matter where I go, the Blue Ridge Mountains of NC will always be home. 

*Most of all, I want to make sure that God is not just a 'side note' in all of my writings.  He should and must be at the forefront of everything here at Devoted Daughter. 

"In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song;
this Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
when fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My Comforter, my All in All,
here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone! who took on flesh

Fulness of God in helpless babe!

This gift of love and righteousness

Scorned by the ones he came to save:

Till on that cross as Jesus died,

The wrath of God was satisfied -

For every sin on Him was laid;

Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay

Light of the world by darkness slain:

Then bursting forth in glorious Day

Up from the grave he rose again!

And as He stands in victory

Sin's curse has lost its grip on me,

For I am His and He is mine -

Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death,

This is the power of Christ in me;

From life's first cry to final breath.

Jesus commands my destiny.

No power of @#!*% , no scheme of man,

Can ever pluck me from His hand;

Till He returns or calls me home,

Here in the power of Christ I'll stand."
