You are worth more... If you are sexually active

Hopefully this title caught you off guard and made you question my sanity. Today in class a friend of mine was giving a presentation on a book about self image. It was very interesting, but one thing she said caught my attention. The world sees it as if you are sexually active you are worth more... Meaning if you are not sexually active then it must be no guy finds you attractive. This is a LIE! It is so true that our culture believes this though... It breaks my heart. This is right opposite of the truth, yet so many girls believe this lie! I am here to tell you that if you are not sexually active that does NOT mean that you are any less valuable. Honestly, in most God loving guys eyes they see you as a precious jewel because you have not given yourself away. I want to say though that if you have had sex you are without a doubt still worth more than you can imagine! God heals and restores. For the purpose of this post though i want to get the point across that if you have not been sexually active or have been and has gotten back right with God you are worth more than you can imagine! It is not in the least a bad thing that you aren't sexually active. To tell you the truth I'm sure there are many guys that would date you if you would have sex with them, but the reason they aren't dating you is because they do not want to give up sex. Multiple guys would be honest with me that because i wouldn't kiss them they didn't want to date me. It was a sad reality, but I am glad to know that they knew i was serious. I meant what i said and was not going to let some random boy kiss me. Stick to your guns and do not believe the world! YOU ARE WORTH LIFE! Jesus died for you specifically because He found value in you! Hold on tight to that truth. Today you may be man less, but one day you will have a man who appreciates more than you can comprehend that you waited and didn't have careless sex to find your identity. It is worth the wait!

With care,

Money Monday

Tip- Reuse gifts! My family use to make the most fun of me b/c i would do this all the time! I still do, but with a little more class than i use to! :) i was known for giving my toys as Christmas presents. It was sweet, but none the less funny. Now I am talking about that kitchen utensil that you already had so you didn't really need another one. The book that you already had. The candle or lotion that was like the zillioneth one you have. So on and so on. You know what I'm talking about. People give frames and then instead of using it the person just puts it in a drawer to collect dust. That's useless! Re give it! Be thoughtful about it, but don't let things go to waste. Especially when it is Christmas time and you are playing dirty Santa or something like that. Please for goodness sakes do not go buy something! You have plenty laying around your house! Think out of the box. Someone else may really like it or need it.

What seemed like such a short while ago...

So, can you tell that I have the blogging fever again and I am all into it? I really feel like I have alot to say. It may not mean anything to anyone else, but hopefully it will! :)

Everyone knows... I'm engaged (EEK!!!lol)! Have been for about 5 months. I could go on and on, but that isn't the point. The point is I fear that now all of the sudden I'm in the category of "one of those girls". You know the "Lucky" kind who found her love before age 30. I am not all of the sudden thrown in the category of, "She has no idea what it is like to be single". Welllllll oh contrar. As a matter of fact this time last year i was single.... very single... lol It is crazy... I know! Trust me. I've been thinking back alot this last week or so b/c soon it will be when Matt and I began talking. This post is not going to get into just wait or how God worked it all out. I have no doubt at all He did, but that will be saved for another post. Tonight I just wanted to say.... I am just like you. I am engaged and you may or may not be, but please do not write me off. I understand loneliness, fear of never finding the right one, begging God to send Him (You should read some of my journals!), and so on. I do see the other side though and I can offer hope. So often older women try to encourage us and they mean it out of the best heart, but the thing is it seems so distant and we don't see how they can understand what it feels like. Please know that I am only mere 20. Sometimes I feel like this last year has been a crazy roller coaster, but at the same time I know it is the divine will of God.

All this to say.... Please know that where I am coming from is no old woman who has had a man forever. I know the pain of wondering, waiting, and longing. I write from the heart and with brutal honesty sometimes. I want to encourage you and push you on when you feel like giving in. Purity is worth it. That's all I have to say tonight!

Much love,

Money Monday

Hi ladies! So since I love to save money i figured i would give some random tips! You may think, "Duhhhh doesn't everyone do that!" or you may think "Duhhhhh why did I never think of that?!"! Either way enjoy! :)

Tip- Cut dryer sheets in half or in fourths! I remember my mom use to do this and i always wondered why. Those boogers are expensive! You will be amazed how it really makes no difference at all except you get 2 or 3 times as many out of the box!

Musings from an engaged woman...

So I had planned on rather retiring this blog, but the longer it went the more I missed it and I realized I had stuff I wanted to say. That leads us to here... Posting again! :) I am now in another whole season of life that I never thought would come. Really... I was telling Matt today that I never thought I would be 20 and engaged. Here I am though! I am SO glad I did some things the way I did and I've also learned some things. So, since I am crazy busy (who isn't?!) I won't post as much as I use to, but I would like to continue posting. Most will be about purity while others may be about wifely things! I love saving money, cleaning and cooking! I might add some of those things as well! :) lease comment so that I know someone is reading and I'm not just wasting my time! :) For now... Happy Thanksgiving!!
