Hello, world!

Hi everyone! This is my first ever blog post! I am very excited about this! I’m just going to tell y’all a little bit about me and why I decided to start a blog. Here goes…

My name is Casey and I  live in a small Alabama town with my wonderful husband of almost three years! We got married when I was 19 and he was 21. Nowadays, 19 is looked at as way too young to get married and we faced a lot of opinionated people because of our ages.

We got engaged in October of 2014 and came up with a date of May 9th 2015, I think, to have our wedding. Obviously, from the “I think,” you can gather we didn’t get married on that day! Instead, we decided one Monday to get married that Friday which was February 27th, 2015. I was tired of people trying to tell me what to do and how to do it when it came to my wedding. So I said FORGET IT! And we just did it! We told family, close friends, and of course our preacher. As you can imagine, the first thought people had as to why we moved the wedding up so abruptly was “Am I pregnant?!” The answer was NO! And here we are, almost 3 years later! And no, I still do not have any kids nor am I pregnant! HA!

Today I work a full-time job at a pharmacy, but I don’t think that’s what God wants for me forever. He’s been heavy on my heart lately about starting some kind of ministry to bring people to Him. I tried to think of a way I could start a ministry without having to quit my job, and I could hear God say a blog!

So, back to why I decided to start a blog. “Aren’t there a ton of blogs out there already?” Well, the answer is yes. “Why are you starting one then?” I believe everyone has something different and unique to share. No two blogs are the same. For me, I have felt God telling me to start a blog for a while. I just never knew what I could possibly write about that would pull people in and make them want to stick around. So I decided to blog about different resources I use in my walk with God, as well as different struggles I am facing, encouragement for people of all backgrounds, etc. I don’t want this blog to look like somebody else wrote it. I want it to be real. Everything you read here will be straight from my heart.

I also want to hear from my readers! What would you like to hear from me? Specific topics? How I study my Bible? Anything that you can think of! I’m open to suggestions! I will not be answering any crude or inappropriate questions, so don’t even bother.

My prayer for this blog is to bring people to know Christ. I pray that each person receives something positive from a post I have written each time they show up. I want my heavenly Father to be glorified throughout this process; not me. Below is the verse that is behind this whole thing.

“Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ.” Colossians 3:23-24

Until next time,

Casey
