A poem to women and girls around the world: Happy International Women’s Day ♡

March 8th is also known as International Women’s Day: a day to acknowledge women and girls, God’s creations, as well as their contributions, progress, advances, and value in today’s world as we know it. Although every day is International Women’s Day, this is yet another opportunity for us to come together and celebrate each other, just as we are, in love.


Of course, I had to slide some Bible scriptures in here. It’s always nice to hear some words of wisdom. Here are a few empowering Bible Verses about women and their strength in the Lord. I hope you enjoy! ❤

Proverbs 31:26
She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.

Luke 1:45
"Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!”

1 Corinthians 11: 11-12
Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God.

1 Corinthians 15:10
But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them—yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me.

Last but not least is the poem that I wrote today for (and to) women and girls around the world to read with loving and hopeful hearts. I absolutely LOVE poetry, so it’s always exciting when God gives me a new idea to write something new. All Rights Reserved.

Some may think we aren't strong enough
That we must be stout to sit at the front end
But that's far from the big picture, you see
What they may break, we can mend

For although we might not have muscles
That can strike the hardest of steel
We do have the mentality and grace
To love, to nurture, and to heal

Love that's true, love that's real
Love that's in a home cooked meal
A hug and a kiss to seal
Love that no one can conceal

And, yes, we are feminine
But that doesn't mean we're weak
We come in many shapes and forms
And even when we're silent, we speak

Sure, we are different;
Me and you aren't the same
Nor our backgrounds, hometowns, and kin
Nor our names or our frames
But no need to be disdained

Let's come together
Celebrate each other
Love one another
As we would a sister or brother

For, although we’re not the same
At the end of the day
No one can take away our love
Because love always wins
And we’re all sisters beneath the skin

Thank you all so much for reading! Please take this time to share your gratitude to all of the wonderful, strong, and powerful women in your lives who are always there; every step of the way. I definitely thank God for the woman of God that He’s put in the place to raise me with Him. And you see, that’s what this day is about–appreciating the woman who have treated us with kindness and passed their wisdom from the Lord to the next generation.

Radiant in red to honor heart disease victims

As you all know (if you saw yesterday’s post, that is) today is National Wear Red Day! Yesterday, I wrote about the reason behind National Wear Red Day—to honor the women and men who have passed due to heart disease and/or stroke. I also explained what we can do as support towards the strides to lower these statistics. And one of the most predominant strategies that I mention was wearing red!

But, of course, it wasn’t enough to just say what we can do to support this amazing cause: I wanted to put my words in action. Check out me and Goodmommy looking radiant in red as a tribute to American Heart Month.

Of course, we had to do our normal routine and take an entire photo shoot once we got home, LOL. But I’m happy that we were able to make a statement through both fashion and color: two different methods of expression that blend to a tee.

Any time with Goodmommy is a treat, but we sure had a lot of fun going out today. Even though we mostly did just errands, Goodmommy was super sweet to buy us both a strawberry milkshake with red cherries on top. We didn’t actually eat the cherries. But the color of our milkshakes were pink, a color in the same family as red. So technically, we second-handedly added another red(ish) element to our National Wear Red Day.

I hope you enjoyed this quick read. Hopefully, you had fun celebrating National Wear Red Day, as well!

Have a beautiful, blessed, and red day, y’all! God is Good! ❤️✨❤️

This is how I spent half of my weekend…a jigsaw puzzle!!!

Note: Happy Saturday, y’all! I decided to do a Reblog since it’s National Puzzle Day! I absolutely love jigsaw puzzles, including this one that I completed about two weeks ago in under 24 hours. Enjoy! 

I think that jigsaw puzzles are so relaxing. When you’ve placed every delicate piece in the right place, it’s so satisfying to see them all as one, a single image is put on display. It’s almost like a type of meditation, all while being a great way to spend your time when you’ve got nothing else to do. 

One of my Christmas gifts for last year, from my great-grandmother, was a 300-piece jigsaw puzzle. At the time it had been a long while since I completed one (at least 2 years), but it was a great experience, and I love the painting that I saw as the final product.

Both me and my Goodmommy were honestly surprised at how big the whole thing was, especially due to the small size of the box and poster. However, none of us complained. The colors are so vibrant in real life, and it almost looks like a true landscape.

I even zoomed in to get a look at some of the beautiful details. I must admit that now, I want to get some more puzzles like this. Though I want the next one to be 350-500 pieces, instead. Keep in mind that these pictures are from the poster, not the actual puzzle. :))

I had started the puzzle at approximately 6:12 p.m. yesterday, Saturday, January 16th. I finished at 6:05 p.m. today, Sunday, January 17th. So basically I finished it in just under 24 hours (with long breaks in between.) Without the breaks, including sleeping, I think it didn’t take much longer to complete than 4 hours. Not too bad, right?

Why positive affirmation is critical…

Everybody needs some positive motivation here and there. When we are motivated, we are driven to create and reach our goals with both engagement and tremendous effort. If motivation wasn’t a thing, how would we get things done? Specifically the things that we don’t always want to do.

Motivation is inevitable. It can come from just about anyone, anything, and anywhere. It could be a well deserved pat on the back or a kiss on the cheek. We can even give ourselves a dose of motivation. Particularly with a tool that I like to call positive affirmation.

I’ve been trying to personalize my workspace, a bit more, so I decided to print some motivational quotes that I can read to myself everyday. Although I just put it up on my bulletin board (after customizing it to add some personal touches) it definitely helps me start my morning off to a great start.

If you have a good support system, then that is a wonderful thing. However, motivational words can’t always really sink in unless you believe them, yourself. You have to have faith, too. This is exactly where the positive affirmation, or positive self-talk, comes in.

Some ways to practice positive affirmation include:

  • Putting up positive messages around your workspace or room.
  • Repeating uplifting sentences when you are getting ready for the day. The more you say it, the more you can start to believe it, increasing your self confidence.
  • Using sentences that start with “I am” or “I can” followed by a positive trait about yourself or a personal goal.
  • Remain optimistic, even through possible bumps in the road.
  • Put in your best effort to reach your goals. Believe that you can reach them.

Using positive affirmation in your daily life may take some time. And when you’ve mastered it, there’s no going back! Just remember that whatever you set your mind to, even if it seems impossible at times, with your best effort and just a little faith, you can surely succeed. You just have to believe it.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.

❆ List of My Favorite Christmas Movies ❆ | Blogmas Day 13

In my house, the amount of Christmas traditions is absolutely astonishing! We take the holiday season very merrily, and one of the traditions that we use to celebrate is binging Christmas movies. Each one emerges you into a different story, but they all capture the essence of the Christmas season.

Since Blogmas is still underway, I wanted to create a list of a few of my favorite Christmas movies of all time. *Keep in mind that this list isn’t in any specific order, as I love each movie for different reasons. They’re all my favorites, so the ordering is just for organization. Thanks!*


The Polar Express (2004)

This movie centers around Hero Boy (Chris), who decides to go on a magical train (The Polar Express) on Christmas Eve. On a journey to the North Pole, he discovers that some wonders of life are only possible for those who believe.

Not only is this movie one of my favorites, but it brings so much nostalgia from when I was in elementary school, watching the story emerge in my pajamas. Although I didn’t focus on it when I was younger, the animation in this movie is truly breathtaking. The characters are easily likeable, and the story has a fantastic message for viewers of all ages. It includes much adventure that keeps you at the edge of your seat, and the music really brings in that classic Christmas feeling!

Godmothered (2020)

Godmothered is about a fairy godmother-in-training who has come to Earth to answer the long-waited letter of a young girl. But when she finally arrives to make the little girl’s dream come true, she realizes that the same girl is now an adult with a family of her own.

I think this movie is very similar to the Disney classic Enchanted (which I also really liked), but with a spin. I love its focus on family, with comedy here-and-there and just a bit of romance. While it might seem a bit cheesy to some, I really love how it has the theme of cherishing your family, and appreciating what you have, even if it isn’t the life that you planned or envisioned.

Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch (2018)

This is pretty much a modern spin to the other Christmas classic, Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. The beloved Grinch has an internal battle as he makes it his goal to steal the gifts of the people of Whoville, and essentially “steal Christmas.”

I really love the soundtrack of this movie, since it takes the classic version and twists it to give it more of an upbeat, yet still festive, vibe. This modern classic definitely kept me laughing, especially with the Grinch’s pessimistic, yet comedic, attitude. I believe that the narration is actually quoting the book by Dr. Seuss, and the rhyming really captures the author’s whimsical style, making the movie and characters truly come to life.

Christmas with the Kranks (2004)

Christmas with the Kranks is about a middle-aged couple who decide to throw a neighborhood Christmas party to welcome their adult daughter back home who left the country to be with her new fiancé. However, the party planning has many bumps in the road.

I must admit that this classic is absolutely at the very top of my family’s list. The amount of comedy, family, and Christmas whimsy that they were able to incorporate into the film is incredible. Additionally, the cast made funny moments even more enjoyable! This is an absolute family favorite that people of most ages can enjoy happily during the Christmas season!


I had so much fun with sharing some of my favorite Christmas movies! As the year wraps up, we are planning on watching many more, and hopefully adding to this list!

What are some of your favorite Christmas movies?

Have a beautiful day, everyone! 💖

How to Make Your Home Look and Feel Festive for the Christmas Season

How to Make Your Home Look and Feel Festive for the Christmas Season

-ajoyfulchristianteen 🌟

Bells are ringing, angels are singing, and snow is falling…in some places, at least. Christmas will be here before we know it, and it’s about time that we start presenting that festive spirit in our homes.

Christmas decorations are that perfect touch that makes the holidays even more special. They light up the house with a joy and cheerfulness that simply can’t be replaced.

To make sure that we make the most of this time of year, here are some tips on how you can make your home come alive with the essence of Christmas!


1. Show In and Show Out with a Festive Wreath on Your Front Door

Come on, now. Although the inside of our homes are important, we can’t forget to show some love to the front door. A festive wreath, bow, or other decoration sitting on your porch can be an amazing way to start decorating for Christmas. Not only is it a great way to get into the Christmas spirit, but it’s also a simple touch that you can use to make your home set apart from the rest!

2. Light Up the Halls with Candles

Candles are a classic symbol of the holidays. They can fill up your home with delicate yet delectable smells like lavender, gingerbread, cinnamon, candy cane, or other festive scents that will make you want to jump for joy! If you’d like to light up your home with a cheery scent and bright illumination, then candles are probably the right way to go.

3. Sing Along to Your Favorite Christmas Melodies

Singing in general is a gift from God, and a wonderful way to make the holidays even more special. Having a Christmas sing along with your family and friends can be an amazing event to kick off a party! But, even if you aren’t what some would call a “social butterfly”, you can always cuddle up in a warm blanket by the fireplace and listen to some festive jams to put you into a merry mood!

4. Warm Up with a Lit Fireplace

Christmas is that holiday where we want to feel cozy in our homes. In many places, it is a cold time of year, and every now and again, we need to be creative and find ways to stay warm. If you aren’t a fan of candles, a lit fireplace is very convenient if you want to warm up as the winter breeze flows in the air. And a housecoat as well and some hot cocoa probably won’t hurt, either!

5. Enjoy Some Classic Christmas Sweets

Candy canes, sugar cookies, caramel chocolate. Yum! There is an endless list of classic sweet treats that will likely bring some nostalgia to your life, this Christmas. Indulging in some decadent desserts can make that Christmas spirit come alive so much, that you’ll be able to taste it…literally.


Hopefully, you now have some ideas on how to make this Christmas like no other! We all want to make the most of this time of year, and filling our homes with a festive, Christmas atmosphere is one of the best parts of celebrating this blessed holiday!

Have a blessed, joyful, and festive day, everyone!

My Favorite Emojis and How I Use Them

My Favorite Emojis and How I Use Them

-ajoyfulchristianteen ✨

Let’s be real here. There aren’t a lot of teenagers, or people with phones for that matter, who don’t use emojis. Their fun, cute, and a quirky way to express your emotions, with or without words. Emojis are definitely a huge part of texting and technology!

So, I’m going to share My Favorite Emojis and How I Use Them!

1. Sparkles

As most of you all have probably noticed, I used the Sparkles emoji almost all of the time. I think I just really love the color scheme, and it matches my personality super well. I will use the Sparkles emoji on my blog posts, as well as in every day conversations with my friends. It’s kind of like my signature emoji.

2. Folded Hands 🙏🏾

As a Christian, the Folded Hands emoji is another one of my go-tos. I love using it when I’m talking about God, or prayer. I might even use it to say “Thank you!” I honestly think that this emoji is underrated. It’ll probably be one of my favorites for a long time.

3. Smiling Face with Hearts 🥰

Even though most people will probably use this with their partner, I just use it with close family members, such as my Goodmommy. It’s really just a short and sweet way to say “I love you,” you know?

4. Party Popper 🎉

The Party Popper emoji is one that I use for celebration. Maybe for someone’s birthday or another special holiday. I really love how decadent and vibrant the color scheme is. Whatever the occasion, it’s a great emoji to use to create a fun atmosphere.

5. Sparkling Heart 💖

To be honest, just about every emoji with sparkles is one of my favorites, lol. The sparkling heart is just really helpful when I’m trying to show support to someone, or show them some love. We all need it.

I hope you all enjoyed learning which emojis I love the most and how I like to use them.
