lately i've been struggling with writer's block. the kind that makes me really want to blog, but also makes me feel like i have nothing to write about. bleh.
but i just discovered 5-oh-wifey's "the girl behind the blog" series, and decided to jump on board with september's prompt.
this is technically supposed to be a vlog, but sorry, i'm just not feeling it, people.
september's prompt is all about influence. what has influenced me and how i influence others and all of that sort of stuff. here goes!
i'd have to say my biggest influences on my life have been my parents, my faith, and my college experience. even as a twenty-something, i still seek their approval for nearly everything. they're both incredibly strong, hard-working, and loving people who have taught me to go out of my way for others and to value relationships. they also raised me in church and with a strong sense of faith in jesus christ. i can't thank them enough for that. my college experience at gordon college taught me to be a thinker in a global world. my worldview was shaped and molded at gordon, and the years i spent there taught me so much.
there are a few areas of my life that i have the opportunity to influence others. i'm currently on staff at my church, and i'm a small group leader for a bunch of awesome 6th grade girls, which provides a unique opportunity for influencing young lives. i'm also currently pursuing my masters degree in education, so someday (soon!) i'll be able to influence young minds in the classroom! this blog also provides an opportunity for influencing others. i know that i've been uplifted and inspired by so many other blogs out there, from the creativity to the positivity to the love displayed in this little blogging world, and i hope this space can contribute to those things!
if you haven't checked out 5-oh-wifey or the series, head on over and check it out!
