Not every choice we make is either right or wrong. Sometimes we just like certain things more than others–such as ice cream flavors.  If you like strawberry, it isn’t right or wrong–It’s just something you like.  Or you might have two toys to play with, and you choose one over the other.  Both would be all right, but you chose one.  At other times, we have to choose between what is good, what is better, and what is best.  None of those choices would be bad or wrong, but we would be wise to choose what is best.  In choices like those, parents and other wise people can give us good advice.  Some choice are either right or wrong, but not all choices are.

Key verses: 1 Corinthians 10:23-24

Did God make people in outer Space?

Although people may talk about creatures in outer space, no one really knows whether there is life on other planets. Most of the talk about other life forms comes from make-believe movies

christian_cross_fishAlthough people may talk about creatures in outer space, no one really knows whether there is life on other planets.  Most of the talk about other life forms comes from make-believe movies and what people imagine might be true.  But if there is life in other parts of the universe, God is in charge of it because God is in charge of the whole universe.  God created everything, and he is the God of all life everywhere, no matter where it may be.

Key verse: Colossians 1:16

Are You Shampooing Too Often?

Hi Insiders,

            Washing and conditioning your hair is obviously a great thing, but did you know that over washing your hair can actually be a problem?!  Every time you wash your hair, you’re stripping your hair of its natural oils making it more prone to pick upChelsea Crockett- shampoo extra oil throughout the day.  It can also cause your hair to be drier.  So next time you decided to hit the snooze button instead of washing your hair, don’t feel too bad about it!

Since washing your hair can actually make it more oily, it’s important to train your hair.  If you wash your hair every day, try washing it every other day instead.  Although it might start out by getting very oily, eventually it’ll quit being oily the second day.  Your hair will adapt to your shampooing schedule.  Also, pay attention to your hair type.  The thicker the hair, the more you need to wash it.  If you have fine hair, washing it 3 times a week would be just fine!  It’s important to know your hair.  If you can’t stand the thought of not washing your hair every day, then try using luke-warm water.  The hotter the water, the greater the chance you have of drying out your hair.

Next time you decide to wash your hair, pay attention to how it reacts!  Try training your hair so it becomes the healthiest hair it can be!

XOXO,

Chels

Keeping a prayer journal can do wonders for your walk with God. How? Let me tell you!

Keeps your mind on task: I don’t know about you, but sometimes when I am praying my mind seems to wander off and get on another subject.  By writing your prayers down you are keeping your mind on task and it will keep you from daydreaming! Writing out prayers might take a little longer than thinking them, but at least the time is actually spent in prayer.

Allows you to keep track of your prayers: By keeping a journal, you can look back and see who you were praying for, what you were praying for, and how God has answered your prayers! I think it is so cool to look back on the prayers I said in the past and see how God has answered them.chelsea crockett prayer journal

Makes you closer to God: Communication is vital in any relationship, and it is even more important in your relationship to God. The more praying you do to him, the closer you will be. Lay all of your worries, burdens, and anything else that is heavy on your heart, on Him. God loves to listen to you!

Keeping a prayer journal will transform your walk with Christ! 

P.S. If you get a really cute prayer journal, it will make you want to write in it even more! Just a little tip 🙂

Love ya,

XOXO, Chels

Why is the world so violent and evil?

Sin is the root cause of all evil.  Because people sin, the world is filled with sin and evil.  It has been this way since Adam and Eve’s first sin.good_evil_post

In some ways it may seem that violence is worse today than in the past.  Weapons are more destructive than ever before.  There are more guns and knives and more ways of hurting people than ever before.  As these weapons get more powerful, so does the power to hurt others.

But in reality, violence and evil come out of evil hearts that are separated from God.  As long as people rebel against God, we will have violence and evil in the world.

Key Verse: Romans 12:21

As you might know, I just recently got back from church camp! The week I spent there was totally life changing and brought me so much closer to God. The biggest thing I learned at camp was how important time alone with God is. Time alone with God strengthens your relationship with the Lord and shows Him how much you love Him.

 One way to make sure you spend time alone with God every day is to set out a time each day just for devotions or reading your Bible. For you morning people, as soon as you wake up you can make it a point to reach for your Bible or devotional. For you night owls, after you do your nightly routine, climb into bed or find a quiet place to spend some time with God.  

Another way to make sure you spend time with Him is to get a devotional that applies to you and interests you. A good devotional for teens is “Email from God” by Claire Cloninger and Curt Cloninge. The daily devotions are set up like they are emails from God to you, so it is super teen friendly!

Matthew 6:6 says “But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”

 The reward God will give you for spending time with Him is not material things, but you will see a positive change in your relationships with your friends and family.

 This week, try spending at least 10 minutes alone with God. See how it will change your life!

cross_magnetThis past year I spent time as a children’s camp councilor for my church. I had so much fun and was so blessed to see how God can work in the lives of children. One very important lesson that was taught that week was the ABC’s of becoming a Christian. What are these? Let me explain! These are the steps it takes to ask Jesus into your heart.

A-     Admit you are a sinner.  This means that you tell God that you are a sinner and that you need His forgiveness. We are all sinners, every single one of us, but God forgives us no matter what.

B-      Believe that Jesus is God’s son and that God sent Jesus to pay the price for our sin.  John 3:16 backs this up by telling us “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that whoever believes in him shall have everlasting life.

C-      Confess. Confess your Faith in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Romans 10:9 says  That “if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. “

 

 Asking Jesus into your heart is so simple, and it is the best decision you will ever make.  He will change your life!

Hi Insiders!
               As all of you know, my favorite Bible verse is Jeremiah 29:11.  It states,
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares The Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”  We serve a big God!  He wants to do new and big things in your lives and mine.

      Chelsea Crockett - Jeremiah 29 11With God on our side, anything is possible.  God can open doors and opportunities that you may think are impossible.  Start making room in your mind for what God may have in store for you.  You must conceive it in your heart and mind before you can receive it.  Pray for wisdom about decisions and then wait expectantly to hear from God.

               Keep your “spiritual eyes” focused on positive thoughts so your life can move in that direction.  Focus on the good things in life and continually give thanks. Start your day with faith, spend time with God, and then wait for his favor to help you rise above life’s challenges.  Remember today is the first day of the rest of your life…..A New Year, A New You!

                                                Blessings,
                                                      Chelsea

Dating can be a blast, especially if you are in a Godly relationship, because you are making Jesus look

good! Sometimes, in our world, it can be hard to date God’s way, because God’s way isn’t always the

popular way! But I believe in you ladies, and when you are setting a Godly example with your dating

life, others around you will notice and want to be more like you! Here are some tips on what the bible

says about Godly dating.

1. Stay away from temptation. I think you all can catch my drift when I say “temptation”. It means

keep away from things that threaten your purity. Corinthians 10:13 encourages us when it says “No

temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be

tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you

may be able to endure it.” This means that, although you may be tempted to do things you know you

shouldn’t do, God knows you are strong and can overcome them! He is always on your side!

2. I heard this quote once and absolutely loved it, and that is why it is my next point. The quote

says: “A girl’s heart should be so lost in God that a guy must seek Him to find her.” The point that I am

trying to make is that a guy should seek God to find you. Want to know something funny? I pray for my

future husband. Kind of crazy, right? Not really! When you pray for your future spouse, pray that they

are staying strong in their faith and that God is preparing their heart for you, that way when you finally

meet your prince, you will know God has prepared him for you!

3. Take it sloooooooooow. Don’t have a boyfriend? Don’t worry! God’s timing is all his own. When he

wants you to meet someone, you will! In Psalm 37:4, God says “Delight yourself in the LORD, and

he will give you the desires of your heart.” Use the time when you are by your self to try and find

who YOU are, so when you are in a relationship, you know that no one can change you. God works in

mysterious ways, and he will drop your man into your life when you least expect it. Go and enjoy your

life! God has everything under control.

Tattoos are a HUGE fad these days! This subject can sometimes be tough, because there is such a debate on

it! The Bible mentions tattoos just once, at Leviticus19:28, which says: “You must not put tattoo marking upon

yourselves.” God gave this command to the nation of Israel, which set them apart from the neighboring peoples

who marked their skin with the names or symbols of their gods. Some people get tattoos to establish their

identity or to show people who they are. However, the Bible encourages Christians to “Present your bodies a

sacrifice living, holy, acceptable to God, a sacred service with your power of reason.” (Romans 12:1) Use your

“power of reason” to analyze why you want a tattoo. If it is because you want to follow a trend, remember that

your feelings may prove to be less permanent than the tattoo, meaning that you might really want one now, but

will you want it 30 years from now? I know that they can be cute sometimes, but think about 30-years-from-now

you! Is the “mom” version of you really going to want a giant flower tattooed across her back? UMMMM I thinksmall tattoo

NOT! Before getting inked, just think “do I really want to see this picture on my body every day for the rest of my

life?” If there is any hesitation, don’t do it!

Don’t get me wrong, I love looking at some people’s cool tattoos! I am just filling you in on what the Bible says

about them, so if someone ever asks you what the Word of God has to say on the subject, you can fill them in!

Idols are simply pictures or statues of imaginary gods.  Actually, most people who have idols don’t worship the idols but the gods they represent.  Some people, however, think that an idol itself can help them.

People want to believe in things that they can see and touch, so they make things they can see.  But we cannot see God because God is spirit.  As Christians, we do not make or worship idols because idols take our attention away from worshiping the one true God.

Prayer does not have to be very formal and serious.  Prayer can be natural, like having a talk with a friend.  Whenever we have a need, we can just talk to God.  We can tell him what we are excited about, tell him what worries us, or ask him for help.  So when we pray, we are just asking God.  We are talking to our best friend.

We can pray about anything, anytime, anywhere, because God loves us.
