To me, one of the best things you can do for your friends and family to show them you love them and care for them is to build them up. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 says “Encourage each other and build each other up.”1-thesselonians

This is such an important thing to have in life – people who will build you up and encourage you. And it is an important personality trait for us to have ourselves. People like to be around people who are positive and make them feel good about themselves and supported. Life is so much better when you feel like you have a support system and people that believe in you and encourage you to be successful. Be that person for someone else. Be that person that builds others up and encourages them. People will be drawn to you and will want to be around you! It is so energizing to be around positive people.

I have been trying to share tons of encouragement over my social media to try and encourage and build YOU all up. I want to be that person for you, and I pray that you would be that person for someone else.

“She confidently trusts the Lord to take care of her.” This is what Psalm 112:7 proclaims. I love these kinds of verses, ones that give us advice on how to trust God and where putting your faith in God can take you.122

Lets break that verse down. It starts out by saying that she CONFIDENTLY trusts the Lord. She doesn’t just trust Him. She has confidence and is sure of herself. She is sure of the Lord’s care for her life and that He has her future in the palm of His hand. Nothing surprises God. He knows just what you need when you need it. So, lets finish breaking this verse down. She confidently trusts the Lord to what? To take care of her. Isn’t that what most girls seek? To feel safe and to have the feeling that she is taken care of? God has that covered.

Trust confidently in the Lord! He will never let you down.

XOXO, Chels

Have you ever looked at someone and immediately compared yourself to them? My guess is that almost everyone has done this, and done it many times. You look at them and think “I wish I was as skinny as her” or “I wish I had clothes as nice as hers.” I saw a quote online the other day that really hit home with me on this subject. It said “Admire someone else’s beauty without questioning your own.”beauty

What does that quote say to me? It says that you should be able to look at someone and think “Wow. She is beautiful. She dresses so nice and has such a great personality!” without immediately thinking “Am I as pretty as her? Do people think that I have a great personality and dress nice?” As girls we can be so critical of ourselves. We feel pressure to look great, dress nice, and be “put-together” all the time. Everyone is beautiful, and they are beautiful in their own way. Us girls need to be supportive of each other and compliment and admire each other’s beauty without comparing it to our own. We are all so beautifully different!

I challenge you to admire other people’s beauty without doubting or questioning your own. Being confident in yourself is one of the best things you can be!

XOXO, Chels

Be Truly Glad, There is Wonderful Joy Ahead

“Be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead.” 1 Peter 1:6. I will be honest with you all. I am scared to grow up. Scared to leave for college, scared to move away from my parents, scared because the future is so uncertian. And I am sure you are all scared of many of the same things. But you know what? We should strive to be truly glad.

What do I mean? I mean we should be glad for our struggles, and glad for what life is giving us, because we are alive! We have been given the gift of life by our God, and He has allowed us to live this crazy life! The rest of the verse sasy that there is “wonderful joy ahead.” How cool is that? Even in the midst of our busy, hectic, bad newssometimes scary lives, God reminds us that there is joy ahead! Be glad for your struggles, because they are leading you to a life filled with joy! When I get worried about college and the future, I just think of the blessings that are ahead of me and how God has a plan. He has a plan to bring you and me wonderful joy! Be glad! Psalm 112:7 says “She does not fear bad news; she confidently trusts the Lord to take care of her.”

So, don’t fear bad news or the bad times, be confident that God has it under control and that he will take care of you, no matter where you are in life.

There is wonderful joy ahead!

Start, Stay, and End with Jesus

“That is SO goals” ,“Omg GOALS!”, “They are total relationship goals.” How many times a day to we hear people say these phrases? To me, these words seem trivial. Is your goal to really have a relationship like that person? They may wish they had a relationship like yours. Instead of setting minute goals such as the ones the world tells us are worth our time and effort, I say we focus on one daily goal: to start, stay, and end with Jesus.

  1. Start with Jesus: Morning time alone with God is crutial to maintaining a healthy relationship with Him. If it means setting your alarm 10 minutes earlier so you can read your Bible or a short devotional when you get up in the morning, then do it. You will feel so much better, more prepared, and encouraged going into the day after spending time with God!d8e146298932786e62eabfa869fc76f5
  2. Stay with Jesus: During the day, send up little prayers to God when He crosses your mind. Are you worried about something? Pray about it. Stressed? Pray about it. Also, throughout your day, make sure you are acting and presenting yourself to others in a way that glorifies God and brings attention to Him by setting a positive example for your peers.
  3. End with Jesus: If this means a prayer right before you go to bed or sitting around the table with family at the end of the day and praying as a family, make sure you close out the day by spending time with the One who gave the day to you in the first place. Confess your sins to him and ask forgiveness, then pray that He would work through you in the days to come.

Start, stay, and end with Jesus every day. Your life will never be the same!

Motivation can be tough to obtain. High school, boys, a job, etc. (basically teenage life in general) can run you out of steam! The lack of motivation can kick in pretty quick. You might be striving for the perfect summer body or to feel better about yourself in general. I wanted to share with you something I recently found on Chelsea Crockett - Motivation Wall Pinterest. It’s a great way to get some energy and confidence back so you’re able to go for the goal: a motivation board!

If you’re a little confused on what I’m talking about, a perfect example is the one on the left or the one below! You can make yours any way you like. If you want more structure, create a board like the one on the left. You can make a schedule of what workouts and exercises you need to do at the gym or at home. If you’reChelsea Crockett - Motivation Board determined to lose any pounds, add in a countdown! You can decorate it with motivational quotes or pictures to give you a little inspiration when you need it!

Another way to decorate it is like the board below. If you want to take the looser, simpler route, just decorate it with several sayings that provide some encouragement. Put it in front of your mirror or on your dresser to give you a boost in the mornings before a long day of school (which I think we could all use!).

Let me know how your own board turns out :)!

Love, Chelsea

Do you ever see quotes about makeup, fashion, beauty etc. on Twitter or Tumblr that you can totally relate to? I see them all the time and it is so encouraging to know that other girls are having the same struggles as me! I have a select few beauty quotes that I can totally relate to, so I decided to list them for you guys! Odds are, a lot of us can relate to the same beauty blunders. 😉c5b3bc6056fa52423b392e8652b13894

  1. “Never ask a woman with winged eyeliner why she is late.” Gosh, so darn true. Winged liner takes a steady hand and a patience, am I right?
  2. “A woman is only helpless while her nail polish is drying.” This is definitely something I can relate to. I cannot normally function for at LEAST 20 minutes after I paint my nails! I wouldn’t want all that hard work to get smudged off!
  3. “Put on some red lipstick and live a little.” Red lipstick = instant confidence boost.
  4. “May the wings of your eyeliner always be even.” Again with the winged liner, but that is just because it is so relevant!!
  5. “I have an irrational fear of wasting a perfect smokey eye on an insignificant day.” Wearing somokey-eyed makeup is an investment. It takes a lot to get the fade from dark to light eye shadow just right, and then you have to be careful not to rub your eyes and smear it!

Can you relate to any of these? Comment below and let me know which one is SO “you”!

5 Words to Live By

It may be cliché to say this, but life is full of many ups and downs. I lost count of the days that didn’t go as I had hoped or planned! In church, in school, and in everyday life, I’ve learned a few words that help me get through whatever I’m dealing with, without losing a positive attitude.

  1. Faith. I’ve learned in EVERY situation, that you have to have faith. Without putting my trust and hope in God, I can easily get discouraged. Sometimes so discouraged that I end up not even trying in the first place!Chelsea Crockett - Happiness
  2. Happiness. If you don’t strive towards happiness, how can you live a life you enjoy? I’ve learned that if something or someone isn’t making you happy, it’s best to get rid of whatever it is bringing you down.
  3. Forgiveness. Being a forgiving person not only helps you, but the person you’re forgiving, as well. Forgiving is a domino effect. Once you let go of something with your friend or someone in your family, it doesn’t go unnoticed. Compassion spreads, so why not pass it along yourself?
  4. Love. Love doesn’t only mean finding someone and falling head over heels for them. Love should be shown to anyone and everyone, whether you’re at school or at church. Next time you’re about to comment negatively about someone, show love and lift them up instead of tearing them down!
  5. Patience. Having patience is one of the greatest virtues in life. Things don’t always happen right when you want them to. Waiting patiently is something you’ll learn as you mature. The love of your life is out there, you just might not find them in high school!

Keep these words in mind and live a life filled with joy and happiness!

Love, Chels
