Bad Company Ruins Good Morals

Have you ever heard the phrase “you are who you hang out with”? This phrase comes from 1 Corinthians 15:33 which says “bad company ruins good morals.” What does this…

Have you ever heard the phrase “you are who you hang out with”? This phrase comes from 1 Corinthians 15:33 which says “bad company ruins good morals.” What does this mean and why should it mean anything to you?

Ill tell ya why. This is one of the most important verses for our age group to hear. Who you hang out with has a huge impact on your life. I cannot stress this enough. HUGE impact. I have had the privilege of being surrounded with many friends that share the same beliefs and morals as me, and I cannot tell you what a positive impact that has had on my life. It has motivated me to strive to serve others and God, and honor Him with my actions and words and life. As I get ready to move on to college and make new friends I am FullSizeRender (89)realizing the importance of the friends I will make. High school and college are such pivotal times in our lives. They set us up for our future and who we will become. When you are surrounded by good company and people that share the same beliefs with you, it is easy to continue to live the life you know you should be living. When you hang out with people who do not share the same morals as you, and maybe don’t understand why you believe the way you do, it can have a serious impact on your life. I’m not saying not to have friends who don’t believe the way you do, I am saying to limit your time with them. Be smart with the situations you are in with them. You can be a witness to them, but they can also be a negative influence on you. It is easy to go with the flow and do what everyone else is doing, even when you know it is wrong, because so many other people are saying it is okay. This is why the verse says that bad company corrupts good morals. Your faith needs to be protected and nurtured, and that is what happens when you hang out with people that share your beliefs.

Be smart with who you hang out with, because it can impact the person you become.

How You Make Other’s Feel Says a Lot About You

I heard a piece of advice the other day that hit me pretty hard and really opened my eyes. The advice was to be be aware of how you make others feel about themselves because it says a lot about you.

Why did this hit me hard? Because I had never thought of it that way. I had never realized what an impact my words could have on someone, and, in turn, reflect back on myself. Of course I knew that words are powerful tools and can do pretty severe damage when used negatively towards someone, but the way this advice spelled it out was different than anything I had ever heard. It is so true, what you dothough, that how we make others feel about themselves says a lot about us. If we are an encourager and build other people up and make them feel confident, then that shows that we are mature and confident in who WE are. If we cut people down, make negative remarks to them, or belittle them, this shows people that we are not mature and are not confident in who we are, so we have to bring others down to our level in order to feel better about ourselves. Who would you rather be? The encourager or the negative Nancy? Whatever you are, how you make others feel says a lot about your personality and the type of person you are.

I encourage you to treat others how you would want to be treated, and to treat them with love and respect to show others the mature, caring person that you are. How you treat others says a lot about who you are on the inside.

What to Ask Yourself Before a Breakup

I don’t know anyone who starts a relationship by thinking they will break up soon. Although no one likes to think about it, the reality is that most of us…

I don’t know anyone who starts a relationship by thinking they will break up soon. Although no one likes to think about it, the reality is that most of us will dump or be dumped multiple times before we find Mr. Right. When you are the one doing the breaking up, things can get awkward. Really awkward. No breakup is easy, and it doesn’t happen overnight. The feelings and realizations that the relationship isn’t working happen over time. Before you decide to break up with someone, there are a few things you should ask yourself in order to make the process as painless, for both of you, as possible.

  1. What is the reason I want to break up with them?: This is something you will get asked a lot. “Why did you break up?” To prepare yourself for this, write down your feelings. Make a list of pros and cons of breaking up, or write down the reasons you think you should, just so that you can go back later and be confident in your decision and not feel regret.images (3)
  2. “What will things be like after we break up?”: Most people who are dating see one another a lot. They hang out a lot, see each other’s families a lot, and are pretty invested in one another’s lives. Once you break up, all of that changes. This is one of the toughest parts of a breakup, the “not being with each other all the time” part. But this also means that now, since you are single, you can focus on yourself more and hang out with friends or do things you want to do when you want to do them. Alone time is healthy!
  3. “How do I break up with them?”: Now that you are 100% confident that you want to break up with them, you should do the act in person. You need to be face to face so that there is no misunderstandings or unnecessary hurt feelings. Be confident, and be clear about why you are ending things.
  4. Reflect on the relationship: Everyone learns something from each relationship that they have been in, whether it is finding out that you love sushi or that you really don’t like it when the person you are dating chews with his mouth open. You learn more about yourself and about what you want in a life partner. Ask yourself what are some positive things you can take away from the relationship and focus on them when you feel down.

Breakups are tough, but they aren’t the end of the world. There is a light at the end of the tunnel! It gets better.

First dates = one of my least favorite things on the planet. They can be super awkward sometimes, and you get so nervous before them, and ugh. There are a lot of things we cant control when it comes to first dates, and the uncertainty is what makes us so nervous. There are a few things you CAN control that can make the date go more smoothly, and they are how you behave. Here are things you should always do on a first date.

  1. Dress to impress: both him and yourself! Usually, before a first date I try on lots of different outfits in hope of finding one I think will impress my date. Instead of trying to impress HIM, impress YOURSELF. Wear what makes you feel like you! Be confident in what you are wearing and he will notice!FullSizeRender (46)
  2. Be honest: If you are having a good time, say it! And if you aren’t, don’t say “I’m just not feeling it,” but also don’t tell him that you “want to do this again sometime.” If you didn’t like it, just tell him thank you for the date, and if he asks you out on a second one, just be polite and say no.
  3. Be polite: Say please and thank you. People notice when you do and when you don’t! If you want to make a positive impression, mind your manners. Put your phone away and give him your attention.
  4. Just be you: This is the most important point. First impressions are so so important, so make sure you give your date a good look at who you are. If you are an outgoing person, be outgoing! If you are not, don’t force it! Don’t be someone you think your date would like, just be yourself.

And finally…have fun! Yes, first dates are nerve wracking, but they can be the start of a beautiful thing!

5 Signs You Aren’t Ready to Get Back in the Dating Game

Do you ever feel like you need to be in a relationship? Like, if all of your friends are dating someone, and Netflix romance movies makes it look like it could be fun, so you think maybe you should give it a try? Odds are you have felt this way at some point. When we think like this, we may feel like we should date the first person who shows some interest in us because if we don’t, we could end up forever alone (noooooooo!). Don’t let these thoughts drive you. Here is how to find out if you are not ready for a relationship.

  1. You still social media stalk your ex: If your sleuthing is on the Sherlock Holmes level, you probably aren’t over that person, hence you are not ready for a new relationship.via-christianfunnypictures.com_
  2. Your friends’ relationship drama makes you gag: If hearing about your friends’ relationship troubles makes you thank your lucky stars you aren’t dating a guy like that, then you might want to wait to get into the dating game.
  3. You like treating yourself: If you love your “me” time and don’t feel like sharing, then you aren’t ready for a relationship. And you know what? That is totally fine! When you are ready to date you will feel ready to share your time with someone else.

So, if you still social media stalk your ex, you hate hearing about your friends’ relationship drama, and you don’t feel like sharing your time, then you aren’t ready to get back in the dating saddle!

Why We Should Accept that Everyone’s Style is Different

Walk through the halls of high school, mall, or walk through a college campus and you will discover one thing: everyone dresses differently. It may be subtly different or drastically unique, but there is no escaping the fact that everyone has their own personal style. And you know what? That is awesome! Life would be so boring if we were all the same! Unfortunately, sometimes we catch ourselves making fun of or negatively commenting on other people’s style, saying that it looks weird or isn’t the cutest. Here are just a few reasons why we shouldn’t make fun or bash other people’s personal style.

  1. Different is just different, it doesn’t make it ugly: For a lot of us, our tendency is to think that anything that is different from our own preferences isn’t cute or is wrong. If you love wearing colors and patterns, then simplistic style may seem boring and dull to you. If you love preppy style, the boho/hippie style trend is probably far from your favorite. But, just because we aren’t interested in it or don’t want to wear it ourselves doesn’t make it un-stylish or ugly!FullSizeRender (76)
  2. Style is personal: And it is also a journey. When I was in middle school and the early high school stages, I loved wearing name brands and t-shirts with their logos on them. Now, I rarely wear those brands, and tend to wear more trendy pieces and am more adventurous with my wardrobe. Your style changes as you change, and it can even depend on how you are feeling that day when you pick out your outfit! So, teasing someone on their outfit choice is ultimately telling them that their style isn’t as mature as yours or they have no clue about what is fashionable, when that isn’t the case at all!
  3. Experimenting is fun: Wearing the same style of clothes day after day can get boring, so switching up your style keeps things fun and interesting! Why wear what you think everyone else is wearing or what you think others will like when you can wear what YOU like and feel comfortable in? Experiment with different looks and have fun with fashion. Don’t put yourself in a style box and feel like you have to stay within that “style,” and don’t let others feel like you have to BE in a box!

So, next time you see someone wearing an outfit that is so not your style, just look at them and think “They have interesting personal style, and they totally rock it!” You know the awesome feeling of putting together an outfit that is totally “you” and how confident and pretty you feel when wearing it, so you can recognize when someone else is feeling that way about their outfit and themselves.

What Godly Guys Look For In A Gal

Okay gals, how many of us sit and daydream about our perfect guy? Most of us talk about what our prince charming is like to our girlfriends and gush about meeting him one day. If you are like me, you even have a list of what your perfect guy is like, from personality to physical traits. Do you ever wonder if guys do this too? Make lists of what they want their future Mrs. Right to be like? If so, do we measure up to that list? Well, I wanted an answer, so I consulted one of my Christian guy friends. Here is a guy’s perspective of what they look for in a gal. He says:FullSizeRender (83)

Guys’ minds really don’t operate the same as girls (surprise surprise!). In fact, most guys don’t really know what they want until they’ve found it. Now, I can’t speak for all guys when I say that, but among my Christian guy friends, there are 2 things we look for: if there is a spark between us, and if she loves God. We want a connection that gives us butterflies, just like you do. We want to be attracted to them both on the surface, and to what is in their hearts. We want to be able to hold a deep, intelligent conversation, but also have fun and goof off. Each guy is different in what they look for as far as a “spark”. Like I said before, us Christian guys also want a woman who is chasing after God and seeks His wisdom in her life. We want someone who cares for others and who inspires girls around her. But, like we said, we don’t really 100% know exactly what we want until we actually find it! Here is the most important thing: stop trying to be someone you think guys will like and be who you want to be, because the right guy will like exactly who you are.

Well said! Sometimes your guy friends can be a great source of wisdom, am I right?

I grew up in a household where cussing pretty much never happened. I always assumed it had something to do with our religion, but I never knew exactly why we didn’t cuss. As I grew up, my friends started using curse words more and more, and in high school, almost everyone uses curse words pretty frequently. As I got to be around it more and more, it became harder and harder to not cuss, just because when you are surrounded by it, it is easy to pick up on it. I have had people notice that I don’t cuss, and they ask me about it. I have also had people ask me what Christians really think about cussing because they know about my Faith. I wanted to be able to answer them wisely, so I did some research. If you have ever wondered what the Bible says about cussing, because I sure did, here is what I found:

  1. Colossians 3:8- But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth.
  2. Ephesians 4:29- Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.wpid-Photo-20151130090532476
  3. Psalm 34:13-14- Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit. Turn away from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.
  4. Psalm 141:3- Set a guard, OLord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips!
  5. Proverbs 21:23-Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps himself out of trouble.

The Bible pretty much says that if the words out of your mouth are angry, full of wrath, obscene, evil, deceitful, and can create trouble (all things cuss words are, pretty much), then they should not be spoken. Guard your words, a lot of people will look to you to see how you act and what you say! You are representing Christ! Make Him look good.

Breakups can really shake your life up. They can make you depressed and can make you look at relationships in a totally new way. They can also make you feel like you need change in your life to help you move forward. Sometimes, a fresh start is just what you need after a breakup. It can make you feel powerful and like you have control! Here are a few things to change after a breakup to help you move forward.

  1. Outlook and attitude: After the chaos of a breakup, it is a good idea to evaluate how your outlook on life and love has changed. Breakups often make us want to make changes for the better and focus on improving ourselves. Make the best of your situation and use this time to get to know yourself.
  2. Hair: This one is a pretty common change people make after a breakup, and with good reason! A fresh new hair cut for a fresh new you. Did your ex ever tell you not to dye your hair blond even though you really wanted to? Dye those locks blonde, girl! No more holding back! You will feel strong, independent, and beautiful with a fresh new ‘do.images (1)
  3. Music: Did your bf like a certain type of music? Did you change your taste in music to fit with his? Time to find new music for the new you. Create a new soundtrack for your life!
  4. Style: If you dressed a certain way to impress your boyfriend or he didn’t like certain things you wore, no need to worry about that anymore! Now you can dress however you please. Did he hate red lipstick? Wear it proudly! Try new styles, you may find a new fav!
  5. Relationship outlook: Use this time to think about what you want in your next relationship. What did you like and dislike about your ex? What will you do differently the next time around?

Breakups are a great opportunity to learn more about yourself and focus on the “new you”.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, first dates are scary business. You are putting yourself out there, and even though you have probably texted them a bunch or chatted with them in person, your first date is a totally different ball field. It is all about making a good impression and keeping your wits about you. Dating etiquette is much more than saying please and thank you and putting your napkin on your lap during dinner. Here are the basics on everything you need to know about dating etiquette to help you make a fab impression on your date.

Be on time: Please please pleeeease. There is no bigger annoyance than a late date. Be respectful and be on time, don’t keep them waiting! If you are running behind, text them and keep them updated on your status.IMG_3938

Put your phone away: Unless there is a big family emergency that requires you have your phone handy, put it away. Your friends will understand if you respond to their text in a few hours instead of right away. When you have your phone out during a date it gives off the message that they aren’t your main focus and they aren’t as important as what is going on on your phone.

Make eye contact: Giving someone eye contact lets them know you are interested in what they have to say and shows them respect. If you avoid eye contact they may think you are bored or aren’t into them.

Be attentive and ask questions: Really listen to what they have to say and try to give them your input. Also, ask them questions to keep the dialogue going. Feedback shows them that you’re really listening and want to hear what they have to say.

Manners are hard to come by these days, so when you show that you have good ones, you will be even more of a total catch! Plus, it will most likely knock the socks off of your date.

Not only is dating scary, FIRST dates are even scarier! You usually don’t really know the person, you are nervous, the buildup of the whole thing can give you date-induced anxiety, and you want to be able to put your best foot forward and make the best impression possible. Here are a few ways to beat the nerves and put your most date-ready self out there.

  1. Put your phone away: Checking your phone in front of your date tells them that you are bored and not interested in them. If you have to check your phone, excuse yourself to the restroom and do it there. It is the polite thing to do!
  2. Ask questions: Ask them about themselves, and not just the everyday questions like “what do you want to study in college” or “what kind of job do you have”, ask things like “what has been your favorite place to travel to” and “if you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be”. These kinds of questions let the person know that you are interested in their likes and also helps you learn more about them.FullSizeRender (72)
  3. Stay positive: Even if they were late to pick you up or if you had a bad day, try and stay positive and optimistic during your date. Positive people are likeable people!
  4. Stay away from talking about your ex: If you recently got out of a relationship or even if you haven’t dated in a while, stay away from talking about past relationships. If they ask, just say that it didn’t work out but you learned a lot and leave it at that.
  5. Be honest: At the end of the date, if you had a good time, say so! If not, just say thank you for taking you out and leave it at that. Don’t play games, just be honest. Honesty is attractive!

Dating can be rough, but it can also be a lot of fun! Keep these tips handy for the next time you need to make a fab first impression.

Odds are, you are no stranger to stress. School, work, friends, family, there are so many things vying for our time and attention and sometimes we feel like we are being pulled a million ways at once and that there is no possible way to get everything done that we need to. Then, there are those people who don’t seem to feel any stress at all, even though they’ve got lives just as busy as ours. How do they do it?! How do they manage their stress and make it seem so easy? Here are 5 habits of the less-stressed people of the population.

  1. Laugh lots: Laughing every day is a great way to manage stress. Laughter releases endorphins, stimulates your lungs and heart, and improves your circulation which all help calm your stress response.
  2. Be grateful: Being thankful helps you decrease your worries and increases your focus on the positive things in life which helps fight negativity.
  3. Exercise: Working out doesn’t just strengthen your body, it also strengthens your mind. It helps you stay calm because exercising is an outlet for frustrations. It also increases the hormones in your brain that make you feel happy and good.62824517
  4. Get enough sleep: Sleep and stress go together like peanut butter and jelly. Healthy people who know how to deal with stress know that sleep is a priority. Lack of sleep can make you angry, sad, mentally exhausted, and stressed.
  5. Watch the caffeine intake: You may think of caffeine as the magical substance that helps you power through the day, but it actually may be causing you stress. Caffeine can actually increase the symptoms of stress, so limit how much you take in on a daily basis.

Stress doesn’t have to rule our lives! Hopefully these tips from people who know how to stay on top of stress help you do the same.

As most of you know, I will be heading off to college in California the fall. I am so so excited, but also a little nervous. I want to be prepared for college as much as I can be, and I want to make the transition as easy as possible. That is why it is never too early to start the planning process. One of the biggest things for me is knowing what to get for my dorm room and for classes. I want to be ready for anything! Here are the top 20 items on my college shopping list.

  1. Cute bedding: there is nothing like a cute comforter to brighten up a dorm room!
  2. Comfy sleeping pillow
  3. A nice towel set: this needs to include a bath towel, hand towel, and wash cloths!
  4. Shower shoes: like flip flops. These are VITAL.
  5. All bathroom essentials: like mouthwash, toothpaste, floss, face cleanser and makeup wipes, hair straightener, curling iron, etc.
  6. Bath robe: for walking to/from the shower, or just for lounging in your dorm room
  7. Mirror: A floor-length mirror that you can prop up against the wall is a good idea, or one that hangs over the door
  8. Laundry bin9015-2
  9. Mini fan: for those days when your dorm room is downright stuffy
  10. Scarf hanger, regular hangers, shoe organizer, jewelry organizer, all closet organization
  11. Cute lamp for your desk
  12. Pain meds like Tylenol and Ibuprofen
  13. Cough medicine, allergy medicine
  14. First aid kit
  15. Tissues

  17. Binders, notebooks, paper, folders for class
  18. Power strip or extension cord: for all of those electronics you and your roomie will be sharing!
  19. Alarm clock: unless you use your phone as your alarm, of course
  20. Stain remover, lint roller, germ X, anything you think your mom would have handy!

How to Slow Down Your Crazy Life

Life is crazy. Crazy busy, that is. We have jobs, school, church, family, friends, and everything in-between competing for our attention. We rarely take the time to just slow down and take life in. Our lives are in constant fast-forward, and we try to cram as much as we can into the day as we can. We are constantly connected to each other, and I blame this for some of the craziness. Even when we are sitting watching a movie, half the time we are on our computer and texting also. The whole life-in-fast-forward thing really bugs me. You only get one life, so why not slow it down and enjoy as much as you can of it? Here are a few ways to slow down and enjoy life.

  1. Do one thing at a time: Like I said earlier, lots of times when we are watching tv we are also on our phone, checking email, eating, and maybe 3 other things at once as well. Turn things off and focus on one thing at a time so you can really enjoy it!
  2. Take time to enjoy your hobbies: Block off some time and do something you love! Life isn’t all about work. Go on a run, read a chapter of a book, start a drawing, play the piano for a few minutes, take a break from life and do things that make you happy!FullSizeRender (68)
  3. Disconnect: Put your phone in a drawer and leave it there. Being connected to other people 24/7 via your phone is #1 exhausting and #2 doesn’t allow you any time to have “me” time and time to slow down. Only check your social media once or twice a day. You will be amazed how much time you have for other things when you limit yourself to that.
  4. Stop rushing around: Rushing around = stressful. Leave the house early to avoid the stress of running late and having to rush.

I need to take a dose of my own advice and slow down, too. Life can be so much more enjoyable when you stop and smell the roses and take the scenic route.

This past weekend I went on a college visit with my parents to California. It was amazing and made me soooo excited to start my college journey! But, it also made me super nervous. I have so many questions about what college is going to be like and so many fears, so I go to my college friends for advice. They said the first day of college can be a doosie, so they gave me some advice on how to conquer it! Here is what they told me:

  1. Leave your dorm room door cracked: An “open door” policy is always a good one to have. It gives people the opportunity to come in and introduce themselves. An open door = a friendly person living in the room. People are more likely to come in and ask you to go do stuff!trying-to-find-your-class-on-your-first-day-in-college_gp_2079063
  2. Don’t spend your first night alone: Have a girls night with your roommates and some gal pals in your dorm room. Being around people will ward off homesick-ness and will help you make friends.
  3. Get acquainted with the campus beforehand: Not knowing where your classes are on the first day is a recipe for disaster, mostly because most college campuses are big and your morning classes could be on the total opposite side of the map than your afternoon classes. Know where you’re going, it seriously helps relieve first-day stress.
  4. Wear something you are comfy in: Be comfy and confident on your first day! Dress like yourself. Show people who you are.
