God loves it when we push and achieve what man thinks is impossible, when we decide to take a leap of faith into the unknown and use our gifts for a higher calling. Isaiah 40 v 30-31 "Even youths grow... Continue Reading →
This blog is by my lovely sister and I absolutely love how honest she is about honesty. It definitely challenged me and made me think. However, what I found was that it encouraged me to be honest with those who I love and who love me, because holding back the truth can hurt and usually it is only you, you are hurting.

All of the adverts, magazines, flawless celebrities on Instagram, showing us what the world calls ‘perfection’, making it look real and achievable. As we criticise who we are, in a desperate effort to look a certain way and worrying about the small things that we don’t like about ourselves, when in actual fact other people wouldn’t even notice our ‘flaws’.
