I'm honored to be guest posting for the lovely Marissa today of Momma Rake!
Marissa and I actually went to high school together and I have her to thank for inspiring me to look into this little blogging world a bit more. Let me explain...
A few months ago she came to me to get a tan, yes, I'm a certified spray tan technician. The next day she emailed me asking me if she could do a review on my little tanning business on her blog.
You can read it here.
I was actually kind of confused. I told her of course! And at the same time I thought, I wonder how many people would actually read that? She told me her blog was getting more traffic and that the post actually got a lot of hits. I still was completely confused by this.
Well, that was when I visited her blog, and saw that she actually had people commenting. Wow! That was new to me. I had been writing my blog since January and had no clue if people were reading it. It was just my way of documenting my journey. I had never read another blog.
I then started clicking around on her page, clicking on some other "followers" and was absolutely blown away by this little blogging community that I never knew existed. These people were inspiring!!
I think it was about a month later that I found out what a "linky" party was, the idea of a button, and the concept of doing guest posts. I was such a rookie and still am. That was only about 8 weeks ago, no joke.
I want to thank Marissa for further introducing me to this lovely little corner of the world.
I truly believe the Lord can use our stories to inspire, encourage, and even convict each other in a good way from time to time.
I've already experienced this in the short amount of time that I have dug a little deeper into the blogging world.
And like Marissa mentioned on our blog, we are working together on a little something that has been on our hearts... so stay tuned for that!

Today I just wanted to share a 9 minute video that I got to watch last night at the high school church group that I volunteer with.
I thought it was a pretty amazing story and instantly felt called to share it on my blog.
