Funny Friday: Witnessing

God has a sense of humor and so do we. Let’s start the weekend off with a good laugh!

You never thought you’d be “that Christian” that pops in anywhere you can to share the gospel…until now.

1.) Ummm…where did you come from?

ConfirmationStation

Hello again. Thank you for stopping by. My, you sure look nice! What are you all dressed up for? You didn’t know I had a camera mounted in your room, did you? Oh shucks, calm down. I can’t see anything but the words I’m typing on this page.

Onto business…

I’m not one to really window shop. If I can’t afford it, I don’t want to spend my time wishing I had it and walk away sad that I don’t. I only go to the store if I’m in need of something, but I DO have one exception. Puppies! Just like children, it will be years before I have a little doggy of my own. I’ve already set my mind on a Pug. I want one just like the “Men in Black” costar with the smooth tan fur, deepset black face, and swirly pig tail. I lovingly call them “smashed face dogs” since it looks as though they’ve run into a wall at full speed. Continue reading “Puppy Love”

Promo Tuesday with Love Lezlie

Promo Tuesdays is where we highlight our brothers and sisters who are moving through ministry and small business while spreading the gospel as the Lord leads. Please support them by checking out their website and social media.

A mutual friend introduced me to my now dear friend Lezlie, founder of Love Lezlie. It’s no wonder we clicked because we’re both in the fashion and entertainment industry aspiring to live a lifestyle that promotes love. She’s been blogging for several years on her career, her walk with God, choosing a vegan lifestyle, spiritual growth, marriage, ethnicity, etc. and the impact her words have is amazing. I’ve even had the opportunity to be featured on her site. There aren’t many people I know who live a completely transparent and unashamed gospel-driven life and are willing to share it on a public platform. I hope you’re as impacted by her journey as I am.

Fashion Friday: Fashion for Him

Beauty is all around us and our Creator has given us so much inspiration to work with. We all know that true beauty comes from the inside, but on Fashion Fridays we discover the latest fashion and beauty trends that help us to feel beautiful on the outside.

Whether you’re looking for ideas for him or you ARE him, there is some major men’s fashion happening in this post. Men used to be able to get away with jeans and a t-shirt pretty much every day, but now that men’s fashion has caught up with women’s you have no excuse not to dress up once in a while. Three words: layers, layers, and more layers!  Continue reading “Fashion Friday: Fashion for Him”

Confirmation Station

This article was originally written in August of 2009 on my personal blog. Thank you for reading!

Being a Christian, I choose to go the way God leads me and seek His advice when it comes to making decisions in my life–major and minor. Confirmation is a way He lets me know I’m on the right path. For those of you who are unfamiliar with that term, it’s when God shows or tells you something more than once that directly relates to something you are going through. An example would be if you feel you are struggling with anger in your life, and you hear a scripture pertaining to that subject at church, on the radio, AND from a friend during a short period of time. This is a tool I’ve become familiar with using ever since my FIRST confirmation experience.

My family was in the process of buying a house, and it seemed like everything was going wrong and we might not get the home we’d been praying for, visiting, and planning our futures in. On a particularly stressful day, I asked God to help me find an encouraging scripture for us that would let us know everything would be alright and that the house was indeed ours. The answer to my question soon became my favorite scripture to date. If you remember, I mentioned it in my post titled “Speechless“. I shared it with my mom and I was so proud of myself because it was the first time I had taken it upon myself to FIND an answer in the huge bible she had given me months before. She even told one of her friends about it and laughed at how I’d done it.

I’ve been blessed to see Sticky Rice blossom from the ground up. You hear about human trafficking in the news almost on a daily basis, and sometimes wonder “How can I help?” There is a plethora of amazing organizations who have made it easier than ever to be involved in the fight to secure freedom for the unfortunate victims. My friend Melissa has made a unique platform that offers change on so many levels, and I would be remiss if I didn’t highlight her efforts so that you can join in.

Funny Friday: Praise and Worship

God has a sense of humor and so do we. Let’s start the weekend off with a good laugh!

One of our favorite parts of church service is praise and worship. Can you identify with any of these hilarious moments?

1.) You sing this song every week, but somehow you can’t remember the lyrics.

Fallen Eve

This article was originally written in August of 2009 for my personal blog. Thank you for reading!

When I first meet them, I get nervous. I wonder if I’m good enough, smart enough, pretty enough, witty enough. All of the doubts I have come to the surface when we are first introduced. What do I say? I’m not interesting. Do we have anything in common? I have nothing to offer. Most women have this fear about meeting a guy. Gaining his attention and keeping his interest. I have the opposite problem. Women intimidate me. Strong, confident, and assertive women. Why is this?

I’ve shrugged it off and explained it with the fact that I’ve grown up with brothers and am more comfortable around guys. However, it’s not ALL girls that cause me to feel insecure about myself. It’s the women like MYSELF that I feel inferior around. You’d think I would gravitate towards like minded individuals and be more comfortable around persons with the same kind of attitude, but I feel a need to compete even though there’s no competition. Like I have to prove myself when there’s no test. Continue reading “Fallen Eve”

What started out as a sketch has grown into an entire series. LoveRoboughty was a character designed by my friend Daniel in hopes to spread the message of love. (You know we’re all about that here at L’amour in Christ!) We have a few LoveRoboughty art pieces hanging in our home and we love the smile it brings to people’s faces when they see them.
