Our Diets are More Than What We Eat — Words of Wisdom #23

For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.

1 Timothy 4:8 New International Version (NIV)

What’s the first thing that pops into your head when you hear the word “diet?” Is it fruits and vegetables? No pasta or bread? A real-life nightmare? Due to the world that we live in, diets have been defined as food restriction plans that are meant to help you loose weight. But I’m here to tell you that our diets are much more than just what we eat.

In today’s episode of Words of Wisdom, I’ll be discussing the reason why food is far from the only thing that makes up a diet. Without further ado, let’s get started!

What is a Diet?

As I’ve stated before, when most of us think of a diet, it is cutting back on the types and/or amount of food that we put into our bodies. But our physical health is only one aspect of a healthy (and happy) person. Therefore, the answer to the question “What is a diet” is not only about our bodies; it’s about our spiritual and emotional health.

While the food that we eat is important, it’s not the only thing that we consume. What about the shows that we watch or the music that we listen to? What about what we do and say when everyone’s watching? Does that correlate to how we act behind closed doors or by ourselves?

As followers of Jesus Christ, and human beings, our diet is what we eat, see, do, hear and think. Why, you ask? Because all of these things are in relation to the type of environments that we allow ourselves to be in. And whatever type of energy that is, whether it is of God or not, will likely rub off on us over time. That’s why it’s important that we use the guidance of God–both through prayer and studying His Word–to make decisions that are healthy for every single aspect of us (meaning our bodies, minds, hearts, and spirits.)

Our diet also has a huge effect on our mood; the better our diet, the healthier, happier, and spirtiually in-tune with God we are. And if there’s anything that we can do to deepen our relationship with God, it’s to show ourselves approved by how we spend our time. And I think that as children of God, that’s something that we could all work on in our daily lives.


As you all can see, our diets are more than just the food we eat. Is nutrition important? Absolutely! In fact, taking care of our bodies can also have positive effects on our mental health. But everything that we consume–whether it’s food or what we allow into our spirits–is a huge part of the people that we are today. And that, my friends, is a lot deeper than food.

Have a beautiful and blessed day, everyone! God bless you and I’ll catch you next time! Peace in! ♡

REPOST – Happy Breast Cancer Awareness Month! ♡

Hey, everyone! This is Princess Q’Zion, and welcome to the Joys and Trials of a Christian Teen! Did you know that in 2020, 2.3 million woman were diagnosed with breast cancer? And sadly, 685,000 of these people died? Breast cancer is the most common cancer worldwide, and because of that, October is the time of year that we acknowledge this as a part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

I did a little digging, and I found this throwback that I had written last year. Considering that breast cancer is so common–and has affected so many people, including some of my family members over the years–I decided to bring it back in this quick throwback. So, if you’re wondering how can we stay prepared and protect ourselves from breast cancer, this post is for you! Let’s get started!

  1. Go to the doctor once a year (at least!) 

Calling all boys and girls, men and women! Everyone! Make sure that you take the time to go to the doctor at least once per year. If you feel any lumps anywhere on your body, especially in or near your chest, tell your parents and get yourself checked out. Although it might be scary, it’s better to get diagnosed before it’s too late and the cancer is more developed. Even if you are healthy, get checked out. It’s better to be save than sorry.

2. Eat healthy. 

One of the best things that we can do for our bodies is to make sure that we have a healthy diet. It not only can help prevent cancer, but also a long list of diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. So eat some vegetables and fruit. Just a little every day! Your body will appreciate it when you do.

3. Don’t smoke! 

Please. Please don’t smoke. It is getting more and more common for teenagers to smoke, or vape. But, even though I’ve never smoked in my life–and I don’t intend to–I want to explain to you right now that it isn’t worth it. Talk to someone who you can confide in about what you are going through. Don’t destroy your body, and love yourself!


I hope you all learned something from this post about Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and how we can prevent ourselves from contracting the common disease. If you don’t take anything else away from this post, remember that it’s important to try to live a healthy lifestyle, go to the doctor frequency, and take care of both your mind and body: keep yourself healthy! Your mind, body, and spirit will appreciate you!

Have an amazing day, everyone! God bless you all, and I’ll catch you later! Peace in! ♡

My TBR List for the Second Half of 2022

What’s up, y’all! Happy Tuesday! ♡

The first half of this year has already went by so fast, and my goal to read a total of 12 books before next January still stands. Lately, I’ve been reading many of the books in my own collection, and speeding through them within a few day’s time. But as a bookworm, I always feel the need to add more novels to my shelves.

Today I will be sharing a few of the most-anticipated books on my TBR (aka to be read) list for the second half of 2022. Let’s get started!

As some of you all know, one of my older cousin’s happens to be deaf. That has inspired me to take American Sign Language as one of my electives for my upcoming freshman year. And aside from the gorgeous cover art, I couldn’t help but love that the protagonist of this book is a deaf girl who is trying to navigate in a school with all-hearing kids. She also has a goal to make a song for a whale. Let’s admit it: cute animals are always a bonus.

Lately, I’ve been more interested in reading books with black protagonists, especially those that address racism and discrimination in a way that is appropriate for younger audiences, like myself. This middle-grade book starring the 12-year-old protagonist, Shayla, seems like a really good place to start. I’ve heard lots of good feedback regarding The Good Kind of Trouble, including how it address the issue of racism, but it also contains much diversity in the characters and a message of finding yourself, friendship, and standing up for what’s right. I can’t wait to test this book out for myself!

Fish in a Tree

You all know how much I loved the novel Out of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper. I’ve been eyeing this book for a while now, and it seems to have a pretty similar plotline. What really attracts me to this novel is that it seems to focus on the subject of belonging, speaking up when you need help and coming to a point of loving yourself and the things that make you different. The protagonist is a girl with dyslexia, and although I’ve heard of the condition, I think this book will give me a better look on what it is and how it can effect a person.

Honestly, just by looking at the cover you can tell that this is a super cute book. Magic Poindexter is the daughter of an incredibly famous NBA player, and her dream is to become an athlete and join her school’s cheer squad, the HoneyBees. The overall plot of the book seems pretty promising, and, once again, I love the diversity of the characters. Oh, and did I mention the book takes place at a summer camp? For obvious reasons, I’ve been in the mood to read summer stories, lately.

Yep, I still haven’t read it. During my visit to Barnes and Nobles last month, I looked for the most-anticipated novel on my list–the sequel to Out of My Mind–but I didn’t see it anywhere. Still, my excitement to read the next adventure of Melody in this novel has not faltered. I can’t wait to get my hands on this one!


Hopefully, you had fun seeing the books on my TBR list as much as I enjoyed writing about them. You all know that my bookish posts are always my favorites, lol.

LET’S CHAT!~Tell me, do you have any highly anticipated books on your TBR list and/or any books that you recommend for me? Let me know in the comments. (P.S. middle grade and lower YA are highly preferred)

Have a beautiful and blessed day, everybody! Peace in, y’all! ♡

5 Clever Ways to Get Rid of a Fear of Public Speaking

Almost everyone has had a case of stage fright at least once in their life. And while the thought of speaking in front of an audience–large or small–can have a variety effects on different people, some dread it so much that they might feel their heartrate quicken or break into a sweat. This could be an example of glossophobia, also know as the fear of public speaking.

It is easy to guess that this fear is one of the most common phobias of all time; some mental health experts have even gone as far to say that it could affect about 75% of the world’s population. As a result, a number of sources say that glossophobia is the most common phobia in the world, even above the fear of spiders or heights.

While most of us are afraid of something, conquering our fears is always a good strategy to self improvement. It is International Freedom from Fear of Public Speaking Day. And considering that this fear is so popular, I have a list of tips for anyone who wants to become more confident about speaking in front of a crowd.


1. Speak about a topic that you are passionate about.

There are a whole bunch of topics that many people value. Racial stereotypes, mental health, and protecting wildlife are just a few great examples of many. I am a firm believer that when you have the option as to what you want to speak about, you should definitely use that to your advantage. It is much easier to get over your nerves–while connecting with your audience–when the purpose of your speech hits closer to home.

2. Focus on the purpose of your speech, not the audience.

What throws a lot of people off when it comes to speaking in public is the amount of people sitting in the audience. But the thing is, the people who are watching should never be the first thing in your mind when you are giving a speech. Instead, try to focus on what you will be speaking about–this is why choosing a topic that gets you excited is so important. The more you focus on the topic, the less important the amount of people in the crowd will become.

3. Do regular breathing exercises.

A good tip for anyone with anxiety–or anyone who is working on a public speech–is to practice taking deep breaths; specifically when you feel as if your heartbeat is getting faster. Not only does this fill your lungs with a breath of fresh air, but it also helps you remain calm and keep your heartbeat at a steady pace. Even if you need to pause a few times during your speech to take a breath, it truly is a tremendous help when it comes to keeping your nerves in check.

4. Bring a real presentation.

While there are some situations in which the environment is more casual–take school, for example–other speeches may take place in an area where you want to look more professional. While it is always good to make sure that you are presenting yourself in a way that is, well, presentable, you also want to make sure that you don’t loose who you are and what you stand for in the process. Trying to be perfect or speak like everyone else is simply putting on a fake face. No matter how much experience a person has, they are never an “expert.” Even the people who speak often mess up here and there. It’s okay to be nervous, and most importantly, to be you. Trust me, your audience will likely appreciate it just as much as you do.

5. Practice, practice, practice!

Like any other skill, public speaking is not something that becomes natural without putting in some effort. That’s why before the big day comes where you have to present your speech, it’s important to try building up your confidence little by little. This could be by speaking in front of your stuffed animals, your family, your friends, or even a mirror. The more you repeat your speech, the more confident you’ll likely become in what you have to offer in your presentation.


I remember having a much harder time speaking in front of small crowds when I was little. To be honest, sometimes I would be quiet infront of people who spoke to me first lol. But with much practice and experience, I am much more sociable and confident with speaking now. And I hope that these tips will help you, as well.

The Joyful Blogger Tag 🌻 | national day of joy ♡

If you could describe the best feeling in the world, what would it be? Come to think of it, there are a few that come to my mind. Love, gratitude, hope, peace. But what about the word “joy”? The dictionary itself defines the word as “a feeling of great pleasure or happiness.”

And while some might say that joy is a synonym to the word happy, it’s more of an abundance of glee that feels like a burst of energy throughout your body; in other words, pure bliss. Today happens to be the National Day of Joy, and a special Hug Holiday, which ironically go together perfectly. I mean, if there’s anything that bring us joy, it’s a warm hug.

In order to celebrate this day catered to joy, I decided to answer some fun yet thought-provoking questions in my original creation: The Joyful Blogger Tag 🌻 Feel free to answer each of these questions on your blog, as long as you state my name as the original creator (Q’Zion) and provide a link to the homepage of my blog within that post. And, without further ado, let’s get started!

What brings you the most joy–that does not include materialistic items?

Firstly Father God, who all my joy comes from. Then my family and friends. My pet fish. Seeing others be kind to one another. Doing what I love to do: including writing, art, listening to music, singing, reading, looming, etc. I think I feel happiest when I am doing what I love with the people that I love. While participating in my hobbies is always fun, whether I do it individually or with others, I always love to share my work with the people whom I care about the most.

Which color do you associate with the word “joy” the most?

I know this might be a little standard, but yellow is the first color that comes to my mind after reading this question. Bubblegum pink is a pretty close second, though. I think both of those colors are bright, energetic, bright and happy–looking. Brighter colors in the warmer spectrum tend to make me the happiest. On the other hand, colors like purple, blue and green give me a serene vibe. It’s funny how different colors and shades can make us feel different emotions, isn’t it?

How do you think you’ve grown as an individual within the past year?

The past year–or two–of my life have had a huge affect on the person that I am today. For one, I think that I’ve got a lot wiser, both due to things that God and my Goodmommy has shared with me as well as personal experiences. Now I am much more confident in who I am and how I look, and as a result I am a lot less shy then I was years ago. I have come to discover that I am wonderfully and perfectly made. In other words, I am exactly who God wants me to be. And I think that as long as I keep that motto in my heart, I will continue to grow.

What are you most grateful for?

The list is so long that it would never end, as there are always things to be thankful for when you look at the big picture of your life and what it could be. Right now, I’m most thankful for love and peace in my home. Being able to laugh, smile, and just enjoy life. I know that’s a pretty simple answer, but the things that make us happy don’t have to be complicated. In fact, most times it’s the everyday miracles that bring us the most joy.

How do you find joy through the trials of life?

When life gets tough and you’re in a tight spot, it can be tough for some to find things to be joyful about. However, I always like to remember that even though things might not be going my way, I’m still alive and breathing. Therefore, my journey is not over. Life itself is one of the greatest blessings of all. If we weren’t alive, how would we be able experience joy in the first place?


Wow! Those questions were the exact daily dose of happiness that I needed. The entire purpose for this post was to give us a chance to reflect on what makes us feel joy, and what we are grateful for even throughout the trials that we face. Remember, nothing and nobody can take your joy without your permission!

LET’S CHAT~What brings you the most joy? And furthermore, what is your favorite way to spread joy to others? Feel free to share your responses in the comments. I would love to hear from you all!

Have a joyful day, everybody! See you next time! 🌻

Observing Juneteenth: A Celebration of Freedom

Hello, beautiful people! I’m Q’Zion, and welcome or welcome back to my blog! ♡

As you all know, there are a bunch of holidays that many of us celebrate each year; Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, Valentine’s, and New Year’s are just a few examples. And while those are all great, there is one holiday in particular that was recently made a national holiday due to a bill signed by Joe Biden, coming into effect on June of 2021. That holiday is Juneteenth. And today, I’m going to tell you all what it’s all about.

What is Juneteenth?

In short, Juneteenth–a combination of the words “June” and “nineteenth”–is a holiday celebrating the freedom of the last African slaves in the United States on June 19, 1865, over two years after President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. Not only is it a mark of the end of slavery within our country, but also the freedom of African-Americans. This year, it just so happens to be shared with Father’s Day, which falls on the third Sunday of June.

Why should we celebrate it?

Even though Juneteenth is considered a national holiday, most Americans know little to nothing about it. This percentage includes some African-Americans, like myself. I believe Juneteenth is a holiday that should be observed and celebrated by American citizens of all nationalities and ethnic identities. Here are some reasons why.

1. We need to learn the good and bads of our nation’s history

While slavery was an unfourtunate element of the history of the United States, it is important that we know about what slaves went through before they were freed, their struggle to gain all of their natural rights, and the people who helped make African-American freedom a reality.

2. To help fight for equality

While Black Americans are now free from slavery, we are still constant victims of police brutality, discrimination due to the color of our skin or the way we dress our hair, higher chance of imprisonment, and higher employment rates. Our world has come a long way from its past, but racism is still a reality among some. Juneteenth gives us a chance to fight for equality for ALL human beings.

3. The freedom of slaves affects every American

As soon as the last African-American slaves were freed, it was a step forward to a more understanding, anti-racist, and fair country and world. Even after they gained their freedom, our black ancestors still struggled to gain all of their legal rights as American citizens. And many of us still struggle in today’s world. But with every peaceful protest, campaign, and usage of other personal platforms to spread awareness about Juneteenth, we can all work together to make our nation better than what it was decades ago.


Hopefully, this helped you all understand what Juneteenth is, as well as its importance. While the world isn’t perfect, we are making progress. And Juneteenth is a reminder that when we work together– in faith, perseverance, and love–there is no goal that our nation can’t achieve.

LET’S CHAT~Had you ever heard of Juneteenth before you read this post? If so, did you learn anything new about it today?

Thank you so much for joining me! I’ll see you next time! ♡

June 12 is a special day . . . here’s why

Anyone who reads my blog knows that I tend to use National (and Global) Days as inspiration. Not only do they address super interesting topics, but they are also amazing blog post ideas. Therefore, today I did my routinely check of June 12’s National Days, and there were so many interesting options that I didn’t know which one to choose.

Instead of making that utterly impossible decision, I decided to discuss three of the National Days for June 12 all in one blog post! I’ve got a lot of talking to do, so let’s just get this party started!

National Loving Day

Although we should love others and ourselves every day, National Loving Day is the perfect opportunity to put in an extra effort to help everyone around you feel loved. But to be more specific, this special holiday is catered to the celebration of interracial couples. The holiday was inspired by Mildred and Richard Loving (a black woman and white man) who got married in 1958. Less than 10 years later, they went to court in the case of Loving vs. Virginia, causing the Supreme Court to make it illegal for any state within the country to ban interracial marriages. This National Day is a reminder that love is a feeling that goes far beyond something as simple as race.

National Children’s Day

Honestly, being a kid is amazing. And although we can anticipate what it will be like to be adults, it’s important that we enjoy every single second of our childhood. National Children’s Day is not only a celebration of how children light up the world, but also to spread awareness about kids who have mental and physical illnesses. What I love about this National Day is that it gives kids a day of their own, and acknowledges that self care is an important practice regardless of how old you are.

Race Unity Day

Diversity in friendship circles in real life and the media is always heartwarming for me to see. I love seeing people of different races embrace each other’s differences–in fact, if there was more racial unity in this world, I think it would be a better place. Race Unity Day gives us an opportunity to educate ourselves on racism in our countries and world, how it has changed over the years, and what we can do to spread awareness for equal rights for all people regardless of their nationalities.


June 12 is a very special day due to its important meaning as it adresses diversity and the young people who make up over one fourth of the world’s population. I really enjoy looking at the National Day’s because they allow you to learn so much about what’s happening in the world, and the wonderful slices of life that deserve to be celebrated.

LET’S CHAT~Do you have a favorite National Day? If so, what is it?

Have a blessed day, y’all! See you laters! 💖

Debunking Common Misconceptions About Homeschoolers

Your first thought after reading this title might have been: but . . . it’s summer break. I know, I know! But today this idea popped in my head, and it was so good that I couldn’t hold off on it.

I have been homeschooled for a total of 5 1/2 years. I attended in-person public school from Pre-K to 3rd grade, and then I transitioned to virtual public school. Although this topic wasn’t something that I paid much attention to before I became a homeschooler, I have come to discover that because being homeschooled can be rare (especially pre-COVID) many people have stereotypes about what it’s like to attend school at home, mostly due to a lack of knowledge or friends who are homeschooled.

Therefore, today I will be addressing some of the most common misconceptions about fellow homeschoolers and explaining why they are either true or false. Enough chitter-chatter. Let’s get into it!

1. Homeschoolers are anti-social

From my personal experiences interacting with my peers, the truth is the exact opposite of this statement. In fact, many of the homeschooled kids that I have talked with are more on the extraverted side. Most of us want to interact with each other more, and when we get the chance to meet in person, lots of chatter fills the room as we talk and get to know each other. Homeschooling doesn’t dictate what type of personality you have, so whether or not you are anti-social depends on the individual alone.

2. In-person schooling is harder than homeschooling

In-person and virtual education both have a list of pros and cons. Though I would have to say that academically, virtual school is harder. The reason is because when you’re at home, there are so many possible distractions from your schoolwork, whether that be your siblings, birds chirping outside your window, or the fact that you are close to your bed–increasing the temptation to sleep in. We also have deadlines for assignments, just like those who go to school in-person.

On the other hand, in-person schooling is harder socially, since you can’t control who else attends your school and those you have to be around on a daily basis. The risk of bullying, peer pressure, and the effects of them are at a higher risk, in my opinion.

3. We go to school in our pajamas

One hundred percent, this is true! And I’m so glad about it! This is honestly one of my favorite perks of being homeschooled. While I usually get dressed up for live classes (so I can interact with other students and teachers with my webcam on), I tend to stay in my pajamas for a majority of the day. And I have heard many other homeschoolers say that they do the same.

4. All homeschoolers are academically gifted

Homeschoolers are somewhat represented by the media as nerdy and timid geniuses who are above average in all of their classes. But in reality, the grades that we get don’t differ much from those who attend in-person school. Some students take all AP or Honors courses. Those like me get straight As, with Honors courses sprinkled in. Others get Bs and Cs on average. In my school, we get to check our current grade in each course at all times during the school year, which is a perk of virtual learning. Grades really all depend on the student, their work ethic, whether or not they have learning/mental challenges, etc.

5. We don’t participate in extracurricular activities

For this one, I will use myself as an example. While I take my school very seriously, I also do paintings and other arts and crafts several times a month. I also like to read novels, write on my blog almost daily, and I even joined Creative Writing, ASL, and Book Club for 8th grade, all of which I loved. About three years ago, I was even in the praise dance team for my local church. Like most kids, we homeschoolers have hobbies and friends. In other words, we have lives outside of our education.

6. All parents who homeschool their kids do it for religious reasons

As most of you likely know, I am a Christian, raised by a Christian family. However, I have always attended secular schools, and my current education does not cater to a specific religion. Although I do not know the beliefs of each of my past classmates, there are students who are homeschooled that have religious beliefs that are not Christian, and some who don’t share any religion, at all. In fact, the amount of secular families who have homeschooled their kids are increasing in number.

7. Being homeschooled means you get to do whatever you want without doing any schoolwork

Although this stereotype is one of the most common, it’s also one of the most false. Before this summer, I did an approximate amount of 8 hours of schoolwork a day, including a one hour lunch break. And when I first began adjusting to virtual schooling, it could take me up to 12 hours a day to get my work done every week. If anything, I would say that we homeschoolers have more work than in-person students; and we have to do that work without a teacher at our side 24/7. While a good schedule still allows us time for our extracurricular activities, we still do lots of work throughout the week. Just as any other student would.

8. Homeschoolers aren’t prepared for the real world

This statement could not be any farther from the truth. Even though we stay at home while we do our school work, a majority of homeschoolers still have access to the news, social media, the Internet, and other resources as such. Besides, we still go out of the house and interact with other people on a regular basis. I think how we do our school work makes us more independent and give us the skill of leadership. Fun fact: many colleges actually seek out homeschoolers to give scholarships to. We have just as many opportunities to learn about what is going on in the world as other students, and therefore we are just as prepared.


Hopefully this was a huge help for anyone who had any questions about what it’s like to be homeschooled. In case you have held any of these stereotypes before, I would like to reiterate that a person’s personality, hobbies, and academic intelligence all have to do with the individual. We are all beautiful and unique in our own way, and that doesn’t change according to what type of school we attend; even if it’s your own home.

LET’S CHAT~Are you homeschooled? If not, do you know anyone who is?

I pray that you have an excellent rest of your day or night. May God bless you all! See you soon! ✨

End the month with a smile ♡

This is the last day of May. Wow.

While this month was pretty busy at times–since the end-of-the-year tests I had to take were a bit tiresome–I still had a great time, overall. I’m super grateful that I have a whole two months to rest on summer break. Though, I’m really looking forward to high school and my new electives–Accounting Applications and American Sign Language–when my break is over. Right now, I’m just learning to appreciate the present moment.

But the truth is, no matter what occurred during the sunny month of May, we should be sure that we end it with a smile. And while we should smile constantly, today is National Smile Day…so let’s do it even more so than usual. Laughter and smiling is the best medicine during the good and hard times–especially when we do it with the ones whom we love.

Today is just a reminder to never forget to smile, no matter what challenges life may bring. Because there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel.

Have a blessed day, everybody! Peace in! ✨
