Anybody out there have a cell phone?  Anybody out there enjoy texting?  If you answered yes, then I'd like to share this with you. :)

Several months ago, a friend of mine, KayCee, and I started exchanging scripture verses through text message everyday.  We wanted to encourage one another before we headed off to school.  A couple months ago she shared with me that she had been sending my scripture verses to other people she thought needed it.  I was blown away.  Was a simple text message making a difference in some one's life?

Now, jump back to church camp this year in June.  We learned about "The Beyond Effect".  It's combining your passion, with your burden for the cause of Christ.  After camp, I realized that I wanted to do something.  Something more.  I just didn't know what.  Then God placed an idea in my mind.  Here's a little math equation to explain:

Talking to my friends (my's something I love doing) + Teens like me who need encouragement (my burden) = My cause for Christ

That's when the idea of M.O.R.E. came to me.  M.O.R.E. = Mobile OutReach Everyday.  A daily scripture verse that you can sign up for...for free.  If you'd like to go ahead and sign up now, here's where you can:

Or you can also go HERE and check out my Broadtexter page and sign up there.

I want to let you know that your phone number will be kept completely private.  No one will be able to see it.

Would you be interested in this?  Maybe some of your friends?  I'd love to know your thoughts. :)

Footsteps in Florida: Saying Good-Bye

We arrived home yesterday afternoon.  But before leaving the sunshine state we had to say our good-byes.

good-bye...barefeet in the sand.

good-bye...walking (and running) on the beach.

good-bye...Florida sun.


'Til next year!

Footsteps in Florida: Road Trip & First Times

{A Photo} Challenge

Road trip equals...
ten hours in the car.
napping on the way.
squished in the backseat with my sister.
bumpy roads.

Yep that's a road trip. ;)  But we're here!  We arrived at our resort house yesterday afternoon and got settled in.  Then...we took a trip to the beach.  It was the very first time to see the ocean for my siblings and me.

I have fallen in love.  It's absolutely beautiful!

More to come soon... :)

Emily Grace is having a photo challenge over at her photography blog called Growth.  What you do is find a photo you took last year and re-take it to see how you've improved with your photography.  I thought it sounded fun, so here we go! :)

Here's a photo I took, gosh, not last year but several years ago.  No laughing, ok?
Yes...I did take this.  *blush*  This is me when I was probably 13 or 14.

And here's a photo that I took over the summer...

Definitely a bit of growth there I think. ;)
