Let's start at the beginning...

Hey peeps! Okay, so Jen kinda introduced me already, but allow me to tell you a little bit more about myself. Okay so the beginning- my name. My name is Kathryn, but people call me Kat a lot. Feel free to use either, I answer to everything from "hey you" to "Katarina." lol. My story, well I'm a teenager who fell in love with the Lord and just wants to live for him. I've had my share of middle school drama, high school drama, and everything in between. I learn a lot by observation. Throughout my middle school and high school careers I have noticed two things. 1) Girls just want to be loved and accepted. 2) They tend to look for that love and acceptance in guys. My heart has been burdened for quite sometime that we girls become a bit obsessed with being loved and accepted, so much so that we will do almost anything (such as compromising our morals) to get that from a guy. I, like Jen, have vision for this blog to encourage girls to keep their standards high and hold tight to our morals. I hope that we create a haven here for girls who are tired of looking at guy after guy, and all them end up disappointing. When you feel like there is no one out there trying to hold tight to purity standards, I hope you think of us. Our blog idea came to us tonight as we had one of our typical conversations about guys. We started out talking about our guy problems and are wish to "just find a good guy." We moved on to talking about other girls and how we see them wanting to press for higher standards, but they are either too scared to pursue that or they don't think they can. We both started talking about making a difference, and helping each other. We started brainstorming and voila! We're starting a blog. You see, we're going through the same things you are. We're not some adult who's "been through it already and knows the best decision to make for every guy situation." We're just two teenage girls, earnestly following Christ, and figuring out our guy problems as we go. I think I can safely say that this idea we developed tonight is much more than just a blog, it's a support system. This is just one way we can unite the body of Christ! As I close up my very first blog post, I would like to leave you with a thought about purity. Robert Frost once said "Two roads diverged in a wood, and I- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference." What if we were to apply this to purity. Not many people take the high-purity-standard-road these days. What if we were take the road less traveled, and make the difference for Christ? Would that not be worthy of our time and patient waiting?

Love In Christ,

Hey going along with what you said with that quote from Robert Frost; it made me think of this song I've heard on the radio. It's called "Uncommon" by Greg Long and Kristy Starling. It's basically saying the same thing about taking the road less traveled and leaving a legacy, no matter what the world says. It really encourages you to take that first step. I know with me, hearing words in music makes them stand out and stick with me better. So I encourage you check it out.

Tabby- I love that song! It's so beautiful, and the words give me chills! That is an excellent example. I may post the lyrics on here with a link to a music video... :D
