The Polyvore Files: Easter Sunday

Good morning loves, and welcome to the first fashion day of Spring! You know you've been waiting patiently for this day. Time to put away the sweaters and pull out the skirts and tank tops. If you want to link up with us for The Polyvore Files, we'd love to have you. Just post any set on your blog and come link it here!
Easter Sunday

And yes, we love Easter for fashion days, but for realsies, this is what it's all about right here. Just take a few moments to listen to this amazing song that I've had on repeat all morning. ;)

"Great was the debt that we owed
And how high was the price of our healing
Paid in full by the One who is worthy
Come let us worship him"

My Mindy Project: Week 12

Hello loves & welcome back to My Mindy Project!
Don't know what I'm talking about when I say My Mindy Project? I'm slowly going through Mindy Kaling's "Questions I Ask When I Want to Talk About Myself" on this blog. I'm hoping to do one question a week(ish) for the entire year!

While picking my card for the week, I just about died after laughter when I saw this one. It seemed like the pretty obvious winner. My questions on the back are even somewhat relatable to the week I've been having. So you know, a win-win-win.

What is more embarrassing to walk into an interview with: a giant, throbbing pimple or noticeable pit stains on a silk blouse?
Thank goodness my interviews this week were on the phone. I didn't have to worry about any of these. But obviously I have to go with the pit stains. Zits can be covered up to an extent, but pit stains? Those can't be fixed as easily.

What was your first professional job like and who was more excited about it: you or your parents?
Speaking of my interviews this week, I'd like to throw this on the radar as my first professional "job." Yes, it's an internship, but it'll require the hours of a job, will provide awesome experience, and is basically what I want to do for the rest of my life. So I'm counting it, because NONE of my retail or fast food jobs to date count. I think I'm more stoked than my parents, simply because I have to move 7 hours away from them for a few months.
Also, most importantly, just a quick reminder that today is Good Friday! Spend the rest of your day with your family, celebrating Easter weekend.

"Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed."
- I Peter, 2:24

Forever Changed

There are a lot of moments you can look back on and think, "Yep, that changed my life forever." Whether it be accepting Christ, meeting your husband, moving to a new country, taking a new job, you name it. I'm on the verge of one of those moments.

This March, I turned in an application for an internship at Elevation Church. (You can read all about it and what it means to me here.) Since that week, I've been praying and believing God for a crazy miracle. This is one of the fastest growing churches in America. I'm not even sure I want to know how many people applied for this same position. But what really blows my mind, is that they chose me. God chose me. I still get a little overwhelmed and teary-eyed when I think about it all. Do you know how astonishing it is to hear things like, "Your name is the only one we're submitting" or "We need you on our team"? It changes your life.
All that being said, I'm honestly terrified. This is my first "big girl job." I've hardly worked in this field. And it's such a huge church. And it's my dream job. And it's all happening so quickly.
But God is bigger than my fears. He knows why He called me. He wants to do perfect and amazing things through me. In the end, isn't that all that really matters?
I can't wait to blog about it throughout the summer and share these life changing experiences with some of my favorite people.
