Hi! My name is Emily!!
I just began my college journey and wanted a way to recount my walk with the Lord as He leads me through this time. I am studying to be a youth minister but of course that is all up to Him! As the Lord continues to open up to me about my future, I have been falling more and more in love with Him. My goal is to help young girls fall in love with Him through not only their prayer and faith experiences, but also in their respect for themselves and their bodies.
That being said, I also absolutely love fashion and beauty especially when it brings glory to the Lord. I strongly believe that to be modest does not mean you have to be frumpy and to be cute and fashionable does not mean you have to show everything to the world. Hopefully more girls will come to realize this truth and we can turn around a culture that puts so much attention on bodily, earthly things.
I hope if you’re looking at this page, that you’re searching for something more as I was. There came a point where I noticed that all my outlets for things that I am naturally attracted to like fashion and beauty (Hollywood, magazines, websites, etc.) are extremely anti-Christ and the Church. As women, we are naturally attracted to those things so why not bring Christ to them? This is my goal and what I hope to do with this blog. If you agree, follow along and lets lift each other up to glorify the Lord through our love of fashion and beauty.
**Disclaimer** I am still just beginning this journey and continue to examine the fine line of being vain with my love of fashion and beauty and being able to use those things to glorify the Lord. Please be patient with me as I pray about this and know that I never intend to brag or seem full of myself. I simply want to share and bring together my two passions: the Catholic faith and classy, preppy fashion and beauty.
“Let us boldly become citizens of the digital world. The Church needs to be concerned for, and present in, the world of communication, in order to dialogue with people today and to help them encounter Christ. Se needs to be a Church at the side of others, capable of accompanying everyone along the way. The revolution taking place in communications media and in information technologies represents a great and thrilling challenge; may we respond to that challenge with fresh energy and imagination as we seek to share with others the beauty of God.” -Pope Francis
