i am grateful...

             The Weekly I AM GRATEFUL Link Up with A Girl Smitten
Happy Tuesday guys! The lovely Sarah at A Girl Smitten created this awesome linkup. It's simple...just list the things you are grateful for this week. So..I'm all in!

This Girl.  She is like the little sister I've never had. Mentoring Katie this past year has been an amazing experience. She has the biggest heart for the Lord and she will do amazing things. I see a fire in her that is unlike any other in girls her age. She starts her sophomore year tomorrow-whaaaatt?? This girl has grown up so much this year! Love her to death and I'm so grateful for her.

These Shoes.  I promise. I will stop talking about them after this. But oh my...these shoes are fantastic. Not only are they ridiculously comfortable but they are just so darn cute. So cute in fact that I will wear them with just absolutely anything. Even sweatpants. Don't judge. 

This Guy. He's amazing. And he comes home in 3 days. 3. So right about now, I'd be pretty grateful for a time machine. Email me if you have details about that. 

Opening New Doors.  Guys. I leave for college in 10 days. 10 days. Since when is that a thing? I'm extremely excited. I sat down the other day to actually go over my classes. It was one of those moments where everything started to feel real. It hit me. Not in a "I'm going to have a meltdown" kind of way but in a good way. I feel no doubt that this is what the Lord wants me to do. I can't wait to go and spend two year pouring my heart into God's word. 


  1. What amazingly wonderful things to be thankful for! :-)

  2. You know what, Lauren? I am grateful for YOU and your super-cute personality and your heart after God :) Just thought you should know. Also, SCHOOL in 10 days! THAT is exciting! And last, but not least, mentoring. Having the opportunity to be a mentor is SUCH a blessed thing because not only are you able to pour into someone, that role also challenges you as the mentor! God is good :)

  3. First off.. I LOVE this link up. I'm gonna right a post so I can link up like now. Thank you for bringing it to my attention! Also, if anyone emails you about the time machine, forward it to me please ;) I'm so excited for you starting college too :) it's going to be such an incredible experience for you! Can't wait to hear all about it. xox


I love comments, I truly do. So leave one at the beep....
