Hey girls. Thanks for the prayers Kaylee. Your so sweet. I want to try and stay on more, because i think it will help me. just so you all know, the loss wasn't a family member, it was a very close friend to us, just encase you were curious. anyway, I wrote something, a while ago, about true beauty, and I hope you don't mind if i share it with you. here goes:
"how does the world affect girls in the worst way you ask? well, here's my answer from my honest point of view:
Girls see pretty faces pampered up to look "beautiful," because that's what the world calls beauty. Makeup that covers up, cute, in-style clothes that most of the time, show your whole body. The outside of girls is what the world says, makes us "beautiful." WRONG. Have they made us up to be the perfect people they want? Yes. And that makes me so sad. When those adds for clothing stores get all up in girls head, we start to bully ourselves, inside, and even out. I sometimes look in the mirror, and say: "Something must be wrong with me because i don't look like a super model." That's just wrong. isn't there anything more to "beauty"? Yes. beauty, REAL beauty, isn't how you look, how you dress, or even if you fit in. its not the outside of you, its the inside. its what shines through you, into the darkest places, and the saddest people. True beauty, is how you treat others.
True beauty, comes only from God.
True beauty shows when you show love. It's when you go against the laws of worldly beauty, and find in God, your own kind of beautiful.
"BEA.U.TIFUL"
Thanks for reading. love you all, and thanks again for the prayers.

Good work Sara! Here's my version of Deuteronomy 5:21:
"You shall not covet your friend's life. You shall not set your desire on your friend's house or closet, her male or female friends, her room or looks, or anything that belongs to your friend." I think that is a pretty good sum-up of what we think about sometimes, or me at least. The translation i looked the real verse up in is NIV. Can't wait to see all your recreated verses!

ILYGMFMW!

I came up with my own new translation! It's called ERV-Eve's Recreated Version! My Fellow MIni-Women, why don't you guys make up your own translation as well?!?!

Hey there. So sorry I was not on for a few days but I was on vacation. I just wanted to share one of the steps I am taking. And by the way I call them Baby Steps :) The baby step I am sharing is that I have started to make small goals. The goals help me not do something I do way to much. And I reward my self at the end so that I want to complete the next goal. I am so excited to see all of my family at christmas and to think it is so close! Oh and what does "ILYGMFMW" mean?

Hi girls! My verse is 1 Corinthians 6:19 which is "Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;" and my Alyssanslation is, "Our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit lives in us. So technically, we belong to God. We need to take care of ourselves." Think about it, if your body says 'I like healthy things' and you say 'I like te sweet stuff' that's basically saying, 'I want it my way.' Now, we can't help the temptations. We can help whether or not we give in.

Also, to answer Erin's question, "ILYGMFMW" means "I love you guys my fellow mini-women."

Asher

That idea is so cool, Amanda! I have a similar jar and will definitely be adding verses to it! :)
My destination is Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." It helps me to stop comparing myself to others and relax because I know God knows how I'll end up, because, really, there's nobody else I'd rather take the reins!
Also, I really like John 21:25 as well: "Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written." It's not a very well-known verse, but I like it because it shows Jesus was always helping others and what a great legacy he left behind for us to follow.

Sara, I am still praying for your loss of a close family friend. Keep having faith in God and NEVER lose hope because you are a beautiful, talented, and generous girl. You are so talented and I am impressed on how you decided to write about real world problems. 6 day until Christmas everyone! Are you in the Christmas spirit?
