to barlow girl:

i doubt you'll ever see this. but, if you do, take heart that christ has used you!

***

i am discouraged. i see people my age claiming to be christians, but missing the point entirely. i see teenaged rebellion. i see the lack of hunger in their eyes for more of christ's word. i even see myself being a hypocrite. i feel like there are no christ followers my age out there anymore, and that christ's calling to live in a community of believers is simply a fairytale.

just now, your first album came on shuffle.
i begin hearing words i had memorized long ago. i begin hearing phrases that have become so much of who i am that i could not locate their origin - i could only know that they were part of God's message.
and i smile. because i know that if the youngest barrow girl was my age when you made this first album, if i know that you could be on fire for Christ even then…

teenaged Christ followers do exist.

The Trouble With Blogs----I need YOUR HELP!

I've never actually done a blog before. I don't really know what to put in it. I know something will come to me though. Here are some ideas I have. Tell me which ones you like by signing my guest book.

-I could do reviews on other BarlowGirl blogs.
-I could do book and/or movie reviews (I like to write!)
-I could try to write a short story, and post them peice by peice
-All of the above

If you have any other ideas, let me know!
Thanks
