About Me

my name is jill. i'm a high school/college student and am 17 years old. but most importantly, i'm a born-again Christian. i love the Lord with all my heart and desire to follow and serve Him all the days of my life.



My Favorite Verses

1 Timothy 4:12 ~ "Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity."

1 Corinthians 10:31 ~ "So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God."

Jeremiah 17:9 (The Message) ~ "The heart is hopelessly dark and deceitful, a puzzle that no one can figure out. But I, God, search the heart and examine the mind. I get to the heart of the human. I get to the root of things. I treat them as they really are, not as they pretend to be."



Quotes

There's no better place to be, than in the center of God's will - unless it's in His presence.

When you are arguing against Him you are arguing against the very power that makes you able to argue at all. - C.S. Lewis

Nothing that you have not given away will ever be really yours. - C.S. Lewis

Courage is not the absence of fear, rather, courage is action in the face of fear.

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. - Winston Churchill

a prayer. [April 16, 2007 @ 7:03pm]
[ mood | sorrowful ]

Father, 
    keep your loving arms around the families who have lost their sons and daughters this morning at Virginia Tech. only You can give them comfort. be with the students of V.T. and the families who are waiting to see if their loved one or friend will be on the list of those who are dead. be with those students who are in the hospital, fighting for their lives. i pray that if there is to be another death from this, Lord, that they won't pass away without Knowing You. put someone in the path of the students and the families who are hurting. put someone there who will tell them about You, and the love and comfort You offer. be with the students who will have to face another day, fearful of what has happened. don't let their fear and their pain take over their lives. 
    let them know You are near. 

Amen.

WON THE SUPERBOWL!!!

SUPERBOWL!!! [February 04, 2007 @ 2:12pm]
[ mood | thankful ]

GO COLTS!!!
WIN THE SUPERBOWL!!!!
YOU CAN DO IT!!!


the superbowl is so much cooler *bad grammar again* this year.  why?  because the head coaches of both teams are Christians.  professing Christians.  and quite a few of the players on each team are Christians. it is just such a neat thing to watch these two men praise God for their victories.  and i know that the winning team will praise Him, and the losing team will praise Him.  but in my book - both of these teams have already won.  

oh - and check out (www.beyondtheultimate.org).  it has the testimonies of tony dungy & lovie smith as well as the testimonies of several of the players. plus it clearly explains the Gospel and how to become a Christian.  it is TOO COOL! :)

new series by batson is a must-read!!! [January 29, 2007 @ 10:09am]
[ mood | hyper ]

LISTEN UP!

if you liked LOTR or Narnia... there is a new trilogy out there that you have GOT to read!  actually, my sister bought it, and read it... and then made me promise to read them when she was done.  i didn't think i'd really get into them or anything, but i was wrong! they were SO GOOD!  and it was really cool.. you know how C.S. Lewis had bits and pieces of symbolism in the Chronicles?  like Aslan coming back to life just like Jesus rose from the grave?  well, the guy who wrote this triology set out to have his story be symbolic through the whole thing - that was his purpose.  so here it is!


TRUST ME! you won't regret it if you read these books.  they are so good!  they have adventure and suspense, but the meaning beneath the stories makes the books so much more meaningful....

THEY ARE SO GOOD!!!

(oh - and check out the website at www.thedoorwithin.com

oh - one more thing - i added on my sidebar >>> a bunch of my favorite books if anyone is interested... i'm always on the lookout for some good ones so... yeah.

WARNING: short amount of ranting and raving to follow:

I AM SO STINKIN' EXHAUSTED.  I CANNOT SLEEP.  DADGUMMIT.  IT'S MAKING ME ANGRY.  AND I HAVE A SPEECH TO GIVE IN THE MORNING.  DANGIT.  AND EVERY SINGLE MUSCLE IS SORE AND REALLY HURTS BUT I CAN'T COMPLAIN RIGHT NOW (not thank i necessarily WANT to complain mind you...) BECAUSE MOM IS STRESSED TO THE MAX WITH GRADING PAPERS FOR HER COMPOSITION CLASS AND DAD IS... well... DAD IS JUST DAD. (and he'll give me this long spiel about how if i'd been taking my vitamins regularly for the past few weeks i probably wouldn't be feeling this bad... *sigh* grr.) AND I DON'T HAVE MY HISTORY AND DADGUM POLITICS DONE AND I DON'T WANT TO DO IT BUT I HAVE TO. AND I CANNOT SLEEP.

*groans and moans and gets it all out of her system*

shoo.

i feel a heap better now that i got all that junk off my chest. venting on livejournal is FUN!  (just kidding...)  sorta-kinda that is... so... i think i'm done for now.  yep. 

ever have those days when you think you'e lost every single one of your marbles and can't find any of them?  yeah.  that's me today. 

anyway. going to bed now... and PRAYING that God will let me SLEEP.  aye...

:)

on a different note... i'm waiting for my 3rd book to come in... i can't say i'm waiting patiently though.  oh well.  i've got plenty to do what with school and stuff.  

whoa.  brilliant idea.  i'm sittin in our sunroom and man do we need to dust.  but i'm gonna attempt to take pics of cobbwebbs.  if they turn out halfway decent i'll share. if not...... well....... i won't.

today is most definitely gonna be a "random-feeling" day.... 


WHOOHOOO

so i'm pretty excited right now...

i'm an avid reader. (that's probably an understatement)  while most kids got in trouble for playing too many video games or talking on the phone too long, I got in trouble for reading too much.  i perfected the art of reading a book while doing all the household chores - and can even dry my hair and read at the same time.  the title "bookworm" just doesn't do me justice.  well, for Christmas i got a new book - it's part of a series that's in the process of being written.  well... it was... AMAZING! only problem = the next one doesn't come out till MAY. great. so i went to berean and found a good-looking book on sale for 5 bucks.  a Christian fiction book over 200 pages for only five bucks? let me tell you - it was callin' my name. so i answered. and it was more than good. it was GREAT. except... it was most definitely a cliff-hanger. so i went back today to get the rest of the series. (2,3,4) they had #2 & #4 - but no #3!!! at first i was distraught! but then i decided it was a good thing - cause if i don't have #3 yet, i won't read 2, 3, & 4 before the end of next week! ;)  (i'm also a very fast reader) so i'm sooooooo excited! i bought #2 & #4 and ordered #3... and i got a discount by using my dad's pastor rewards card! *yay for discounts*  

oh and by the way... the series is "Heirs of Montana" by Tracie Peterson.  it's set during the civil war and the years after it... but it's not actually a "war book".  they move out west to montana to get away from the war... so i highly reccomend them so far! :)

so... i registered for spring semester classes today and talk with the prof of the class i failed.  :[  he was really nice actually and i'm going to retake his class this semester.  i guess politics is just not my thing.  but i'm going to shoot for an A this time. or at least a B.  i know i can do it.  it's just that there was too much going on last semester and i could NOT get everything done... grr. 

anyway. 

more later maybe... my fingers are too tired right now!

depths of despair. [January 02, 2007 @ 5:19pm]
[ mood | shocked ]

i failed.  

i failed?

i failed!

i failed my politics class.  yeah.  i made an A and a B in my other classes. but i failed politics.  i seriously cannot believe it.  i knew that i wasnt' doing great in that class.  but failing?  not me.  

oh man.....


LATER:

okay... i've calmed down a little bit... so i failed.  oh well.  you just gotta get on with it.  and make yourself do better.  aye...

misc... [January 02, 2007 @ 2:44pm]
[ mood | restless ]

this post is... highly.... miscellaneous. 

so i've decided that i'm getting too old to stay up all night.  *grimace*  i feel awful.  i think that every single muscle in my body hurts right now. grr. this always happens when i stay up too late and don't get enough sleep... but the thing is... i've slept plenty!!!  oh well... i'll know better next time i want to stay up all night and "party" with my friends.  xp 

tonight my bff (olivia) and her family are coming over for a movie night... we're gonna watch "cheetah" and grill hamburgers and hot dogs on dad's new grill... i'm excited. cause soon we'll see each other only twice a week again... *pouts*  she goes to "real school" now, but i'm still homeschooled.  so the only time we see each other is at church.  and she works on the weekends and has mucho homework. so.... but i'm thankful for the time we've gotten to spend together over her break.  

okay... speaking of moving... *tries to guide topic of post in a subtle way* i've got a feeling.  it's the "we're moving" kind of feeling. i can't explain it.  but too many things are happening, and too much stuff is being done with the idea of "if we move".  anyway.  sometimes i think i'd like to move... part of me is DEFINITELY ready for a change - a new place, new people... you know?  but then the other part of me says... "ARE YOU CRAZY?" look at all that God has given us here!  i guess in the end, it really isn't my choice, rather, His choice.  i just have to follow.  oh well...............  we'll see won't we?
