My first month of Blogging

In August, God called me to blogging (More on that later). I set up my blog and made a post or two… but then I stopped. I just didn’t feel like I was doing anything productive with my time. In January, God hit me hard. He said, “Yo, Chrissy (Okay, He didn’t say yo) you know what I’ve called you to do… so why aren’t you listening?”

I wanted to do my own thing. I wanted to spend my time doing what I want to do. Selfish huh. I was basically saying, “Alright God, I know you have this great thing in store for me but I really just want to watch netflix right now. I worked all day and I just want to relax.”

Open When You Are Feeling Sick

Being sick really sucks. It drains you and takes out the little energy you actually had. When your boyfriend is sick, let him have an ‘open when you are feeling sick’ letter to open up to at least lighten his mood. My amazing boyfriend is always right by my side when I am sick… Why shouldn’t I do the same.

5 Things to get a guitar player

Guys are super hard to shop for. I never know what to get my boyfriend. Luckily, he is a guitar player which makes it a little easier. There are countless things you can get a guitar player. Here are some gift ideas for that amazing musician in your life.

1. A Ditto loop pedal

I actually just recently got my boyfriend this for christmas. He asked for it for about a year until I finally decided he was worth that much money. I’m just kidding. I’d buy him the whole world… if I could afford it. Anyways, the ditto loop pedal is fun and entertaining. Good way to finally get rid of that clingy boyfriend of yours. Kidding again.

With the pedal, you hook it up to your guitar and record a short rhythm on guitar (or any instrument that is able to hook up to it) and it loops over and over. Then, you can add a bunch of layers doing different things! It’s really awesome.

Here is a link to one of the cheaper ones on amazon. Now, there are more brands than just ditto. I’m only telling you ditto because my trusted, guitarist boyriend told me it’s a really good loop pedal brand.

2. Guitar picks

I don’t care how many picks you think your boyfriend has. He doesn’t have enough. I play guitar too. So I know that you can never have enough picks. They dissapear. I never know where any of my picks go. One second theres one in my mouth and next thing I know, it’s no where to be found. I probably eat them. Once again, I’m just kidding. But really, they go missing every time it leaves your hands.

This is a link to a 100 pack of guitar picks. I like the assortment. I’m not really picky when it comes to what type I strum with. See what I did there? This pack has thin, medium, and thick. Your boyfriend may like a specific size, feel free to ask. If you just want to guess, I’d get either an assortment or medium. I actually bought these for myself to fill up my ‘pick’ jar and I love them! It even comes in a cute box.

3. Guitar Pick Keychain

Now, personally, I’ve never had one of these but I think they are so cool. I need to actually get one. It’s just a little pouch that holds a few guitar picks. He will always have a pick with him then.

4. “World’s Okayest Guitar Player” T-shirt

This shirt is so true. I would wear this night and day. Don’t get this for him if he will take it seriously and not as a joke because that wouldn’t be good. Then he would be mad and upset and you will have to burn it… along with his hopes and dreams that you just crushed. Seriously though, if my lovely boyfriend wasn’t going to read this post, I would totally get it for him. But since I know he will read it, it just gave away the surprise. I need a new plan.

5. Amp Coffee Mug

Now, this is a great gift for the coffee-loving, guitarist in your life. It’s so adorable. The shape of the mug is an amp! Who doesn’t think that’s cute?

You Can’t Read Your Bible Enough

Reading the bible is one of the most important things you can do as a Christian, as long as you’re doing your best to live it out. It’s something that brings you closer to God while it changes your heart and attitude. The more you read it, the more you learn. Trust me, you can’t read your bible enough. You use what you study through out the day and watch how God uses your new biblical knowledge to enrich your daily life. You are suppose to take up our cross daily and spend time with Him as much as we can.

6 Solutions For A Bad Singer Who Wants To Join The Band

By January 19, 2017 Youth Worship

So, you have a bad singer who wants to join the band?

We all have had people join the band that aren’t really ‘qualified’ to; if you haven’t, you will. It can be a real pain in the butt to allow an untalented person on stage. My boyfriend and I have had our fair share of not so pleasant singers that felt like God has called them to worship. You’re a worship leader and you want to be nice but some people are just… bad.

About two years ago, I remember getting a phone call informing me that my grandpa was in the hospital. We drove thousands of miles to make sure we got there before things exaberated. When things were going in the opposite direction of what we were anticipating, different family members began asking me to pray with them.

Be Thankful for the little things

Be thankful for the little things

It is so easy to take the little things in life forgranted. Often times, we can find ourselves dwadling through life haphazardly. We repeatedly forget to do devotion, we forget to pray, and we forget to thank God. We can even get in the routine of just thanking Him for the sizable things like landing a job, having money, finding your spouse, birthing a child, or letting your grandma survive her surgery. Some times we forget the pint-sized blessings like waking up, having food to eat, having clothes to wear, and being able to walk.
