Hello! I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am to be apart of the Joyfully You team. So, in honor of this being my first post here on Joyfully You I thought I would introduce myself and hopefully get to know some of you. I (Summer) already adore the community we have here and love all of the JY team members! Personally, I feel like you can be more engaged with and enjoy the blog you’re reading more if you know a bit about the writer’s personality. Ok, let’s get started!
A typical week in my life:
I am a freshman in high school and my favorite subjects are English and Social Studies (or History). A typical week in my life usually includes studying, drinking coffee (my favorite), holding babies, reading, blogging for the blog I run with my Mom https://graceandsummer.wixsite.com/aclassyduo, piano lessons, and daydreaming.
About my family:
I’m the oldest of 5 children, my Dad is the pastor of our church, and my Mom is a stay at home mom, but to be honest I think she is secretly superwoman. She is my role model and I always see her reaching out to others, reading her bible, and teaching me valuable life lessons! I also have family from both sides who are missionaries. I’m very close to my cousins and aunts as well. My Grandparents are amazing and are also big parts of my life.
Things I love:
My puppy, coffee, books, flowers, flowy skirts/dresses, piano, traveling, animals, vintage things, sunshine, ukuleles, adventures, blogging with my Mom, affectionate words, nature, and the daily beauties of life God blesses me with each day.
Jesus is definitely #1 in my life and without Him, I wouldn’t have any of the things I have today. I also wouldn’t be who I am. I was saved at the early age of 5 years old and am forever grateful for my parents who led me to the Lord. Since being saved I’ve had my up’s and down’s as a Christian and have sometimes struggled to be who I know God wants me to be. As I’ve gotten older God has truly molded me as a child of God. He has put several burdens on my heart such as being a missionary, reaching out and encouraging girls who are struggling, and to help be apart of finishing what He started. I want to tell the world about Him and His tender loving mercies.
Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed getting to know about me. I would absolutely love hearing from you in the comments! Please feel free to share about you and some things you enjoy.
Summer G. ❤
