I'm Back!

It's winter here, and I'm grateful to live in a place where we actually get four seasons a year. We get snow occasionally, and it gets cold, for us, and everything gets brown and dreary. But that's what makes springtime so wonderful. When the brown and naked tress start bursting with color, and the fields turn green and the flowers begin to show off. There's nothing quite like it.

Knowing that springtime is coming is what keeps me going. I've been in a very winter-like place with my writing, and in a few other areas of life, for a long time. And yet I have to hang on to the fact that the barren winter will - eventually - turn to spring.

I haven't been writing as much because I have been thinking a lot about where my focus should be. What this blog is really about. I have finally settled on the fact that it's all about the name. Girls & God. Being a girl who loves God but knows that she needs to love Him more. Being a girl who wants to please her Heavenly Father, but isn't always sure how to do that. Being a girl in the midst of this crazy world that shouts a million different things at us. Being a girl who wants every other girl out there know just how valuable she is.

So just as we head deep into winter around my neck of the woods, I'm going to make a deep and concerted effort to bring a blog that touches on issues that affect us as girls who follow God.

I'm excited - and looking forward to where the discussion will lead. Bless each and every one of you!
