A few years ago, a friend gave me a winter scrapbook kit, but I never took enough pictures in one winter to fill up a scrapbook. So, I've been determined to take pictures this year! I'm trying to take as many pictures as I can before winter ends, and I'm trying to capture memories that I've had this season. One of my projects this school year has been teaching first-grade to two of my siblings, Lovey and Micah. I've enjoyed getting to know them better and spend some time with them. We have only four weeks left, so I grabbed my camera before starting school this morning. Here are some of my favorite pics from the day.

"And he said to them, 'The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. Go your way; behold, I am sending you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. . .Nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near. The one who hears you hears me, and the one who rejects you rejects me, and the one who rejects me rejects him who sent me.'"

"'Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.'"

We don't have to go on a mission trip to share the gospel. The HARVEST IS RIPE right here in America!!! This was taken right here in my area, and there was hurting people all around.

What should be the Christian's mission in life? In that second passage, Jesus gave every Christian their mission. What's your mission?

If you're wondering what the gospel is, or maybe you've heard it and it didn't make much sense, shoot me an e-mail. I'd love to talk to you!

Grace+Guitar=Happiness {McKinney/Frisco Portrait Photographer}

I was super excited about doing this shoot! I got up
at 5:30 this morning (huge for me :) ) to be able to get everything done I needed to before
going on this shoot. Grace and I decided last night around eleven o'clock that we wanted to do a "musician shoot" this week. Well, we had stuff on the calendar during every other
Golden Hour this week except for this morning. :)

Anyway, Readers, meet Grace. Grace, meet Readers. :)

Grace is a fun sister, and she loves music and singing! She has a great voice,
and she is currently teaching herself guitar. She has played violin and piano, so she's
pretty music-savvy, although she likes playing by ear mostly. :)

Besides music, Grace loves videography, photo-editing, graphic design,
and anything digital. We can always count on her to figure out a new software program
in a short amount of time (with no manual).

Grace l.o.v.e.s hats! Wanna make her the happiest person
in the world? Buy her a hat! :)  She looks really good in them, too!

One of Grace's favorite songs is "I Can Only Imagine" by MercyMe. It's
probably my favorite song, too.

Grace had always wanted a guitar since she was
inspired by Dad (the world's greatest dad, vocalist, and guitar-player). She
finally got one for Christmas a few years ago!

Do you know what chord she is playing? :)

Grace has a fun and unique style in everything from clothes to photo-editing.

I hope you enjoyed looking at these pictures as much I enjoyed taking and editing them!
TTFN: Ta Ta For Now! :)

They All Shout and Sing for Joy!

{You crown the year with a bountiful harvest; even the hard pathways overflow with abundance. The wilderness becomes a lush pasture, and the hillsides blossom with joy. The meadows are clothed with flocks of sheep, and the valleys are carpeted with grain. They all shout and sing for joy!}
~Psalm 65:11-13

Awesome Friend {Angelina}

Last week, a friend of mine and I went to visit the ministry Prison to Purpose. God taught us so much in that brief week. We cried together, laughed together, drank coffee together, took pictures together, talked, shared, encouraged, etc. We are very different--she's Canon, I'm Nikon; she has short hair, I have long; she has brown eyes, I have blue; and the list goes on and on. But we both share a common thread: a love for Jesus and desire to follow Him.

We also both share a of love for photography. Over the ten days we spent together, we did several photo shoots, meaning I got a lot of pictures (too many to post at once). So, I decided to post pictures of Angelina's (aka Babbs') beautiful face today. :)

 Airport boredom. :/

I met Babbs at a girl's finishing school over a year ago, and I hadn't seen her since then. So I was really excited to find out that we were going to be going to prison together! After our week at prison, we flew back to Texas to hang out for a few days. She is so much fun and I miss her!
