"I am an intense person. I don’t do things half way. I’m all in or all out. You either have all of me or you don’t get me at all.”
— I am so this way…and it is both a blessing and a curse.
"Sunshine all the time makes a desert”

Arab proverb (via maghfirat)

These simple words are so profound & thought provoking.

Anonymous asked: How to do you feel about sex before marriage? I, regretfully, have had sex before marriage but at the time God wasn't really in my life. 1 year later, today, I have God in my life and I'm still learning to have a stronger relationship with Him but I just can't forget what I have done and I'm haunted by it. I wish I could have saved myself for my future husband 😔 I know I have been forgiven but I just feel ashamed. Do I not do it again till marriage so I can rebuild my purity? I just don't know.

Thank you for all the kind messages. It really does mean a lot. I’ve been, mostly, avoiding the internet so I can keep my secret until we are ready to share it. I hope you understand! We will (most likely) be sharing what’s new in a little less than two weeks! We really appreciate having some privacy, and we will definitely be sharing as soon as we feel comfortable to. (Obviously, though, I am bursting with excitement, and can not wait to share…hence, why I drop hints, and further, why I am avoiding the internet, ha!) I am loving all your theories about our news, which most are in agreement, and they have really made me smile. Thank you for caring. It never fails to surprise me, honestly. Anyway, I won’t be responding to the anonymous questions regarding this until we share, and I’m going to try my hardest not to lead you on with hints. I’m not ignoring you, I promise. 

Russell and I would really appreciate your prayers, and positivity right now, as we approach some very critical milestones. We are so, so thrilled to share ‘what’s up’ very soon. 

Love you all so much, and am thankful for your support & understanding. 

Anonymous asked: You and your husband should do a question and answer video! We'd all love to see the way you two are together :)

Aw! Did you get together with all of my followers and discuss it? ;) Just kidding! I love ya, and I appreciate it. I’m not sure if we will do a Q&A, but we should be putting up a special video very, very soon….

madiaaa asked: Your blog is such a breath of fresh air! You're very inspirational in how you think and write and live your life (from the glimpses you post). You seem very humble and down to earth and just a genuinely good person!

Oh goodness! Thank you, Mariana! You are truly kind….though, I’m not all of those things all the time, ha. I really appreciate the encouragement!
