The story behind A Lovely Life

About A Lovely Life

Welcome to my blog- A Lovely Life! I am so glad you have joined me on this journey.

The idea to start a blog came to me last summer (the Summer of 2013). I’ve read tons of blogs over the years and thought it might be fun to take the plunge into the blog world. As I was considering starting this blog, another idea came to mind-start a sports blog. Now don’t get me wrong, I love sports (especially college football), but after starting the sports blog I realized it wasn’t part of God’s plan for my life. And so I’m back to where I started and where I was always meant to be.

{A Lovely Life is a lifestyle blog devoted to inspiring young women to embrace the lovely life God has called them to live.}

The Tree- When I sat down to design the cover photo for my blog, I was instantly drawn to these beautiful trees. They just screamed “LIFE” and I think that is why I love them so much. Trees represent life.  A beautiful life and a life marked with imperfections and worn roots. But what happens? The most glorious thing that we could ever imagine—the Lord’s loving arms scoop us up and make us whole again. In all the beauty and pain of this life, we have a purpose to be lovely and complete in the Father’s arms.

My hope and desire for this blog is to inspire you to live a life that is lovely and pleasing to the Lord. I encourage you dear friend, wherever you may be to embrace a lovely life. You won’t regret allowing the Lord to shape and mold you into the woman He intended you to be. I hope you decide to stay awhile, because your life is just beginning.
