I’m an active and adventurous teenager living on a small farm with a bunch of chickens, a few ducks, four cats, and two amazing female dogs (Tirzah & Winnie) ages 7 and 8 months. I love taking pictures, cooking, acting, reading, hunting, mowing, working with my dad, tearing down buildings and building new ones! I want to bring glory and honor to Him through whatever I do!
“Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.”
Colossians 3:17 NASB

Happy National Apple Pie Day! Today is a super exciting day! The amazing Jenna from Pen+Pine sent me one of her gorgeous items to review and give away. Before we get into the review, let me just say that this is one of the coolest items I’ve ever given away! I really think y’all are […]
Hey, guys (Abby here)…so yesterday, I got tired of reading and wanted something fun to do! Sooo instead of painting my wall (which I was extremely tempted to do) I went and got a paint can and boom started painting…..my dresser! It’s something I had actually done recently but didn’t like the color that much as it didn’t match the decor of my room.
I absolutely LOVE how it turned out! I’ve been trying to get all my room to match better so I love having a brighter color in my room!
Also, I have some BIG news! There’s a new blogger in our midst! So hop on over to Bekah’s Blog – Owl Serve Jesus and follow her (she’s not related to my co-writer Beka lol)! I’ll be doing an interview with her very soon so you guys can officially meet her!
Hey guys! Beka here with an exciting DIY face mask! I’m really looking forward to blogging here and I’m so excited to show you some fun ways to take care of your body!
Activated Charcoal has the ability to pull out toxins from your pores.
Bentonite Clay has the really fun ability to pull out heavy metals (and no I don’t mean steel and tin foil).
Tea Tree Oil is antifungal meaning it helps opens your pores and remove acne (acne is basically an infection on your face).
Raw Honey has the ability to maintain a soothing effect and helps remove oils from your face that aren’t supposed to be there.
Here is an example of what you’ll need:
Directions (DO NOT use a metal spoon when touching bentonite clay):
1 & 1/2 Tablespoon of Bentonite Clay
1 teaspoon Activated Charcoal
4 drops of Tea Tree Oil
A dash of water
1 & 1/2 teaspoon of raw honey/regular honey (we used about a spoonful)
Stir together Bentonite Clay and Activated Charcoal with a plastic or wooden spoon till mixed thoroughly. Mix in Tea Tree Oil and water till paste-like. Add honey and mix till combined (note if you use raw honey, it won’t like mixing together so it’ll take a bit of patience).
I have a beautiful model here and after having her clean her face with cold water, I got her to sit still and I put the charcoal mask on with my CLEAN hands avoiding her eyes, mouth, nose, and eyebrows (warning the mask will stain them so BEWARE)!
With the Mask…..
Let the mask sit for 15 minutes (or till it begins to feel dry & tightened). This also is a great way to get your siblings to be quiet because it quite literally glues their mouths shut (not permanently) lol. Get a hot washcloth and drape it over their face and let it sit till the washcloth is cold. Allow them to finish washing it off with warm water and pat it dry with a clean towel.
AFTER the Charcoal Mask: After using Bentonite Clay and Charcoal their face will be pretty dried out so I made an oil cleanse with some Almond Oil (just a dash) and had her massage it into her face for a minute. Follow up with a hot washcloth (use a new one) and allow it to cool once again. Then pat it dry with a new clean dry washcloth.
And that’s it! A quick easy way to help treat your skin from any scaring, oil/dry, and dirty pores. Remember not every skin type is the same so use what’s best for you! This has been something my family has found useful and creative (also makes you look like a panda, which is cool).

Hey guys! I’m here with another photo haul for you guys! This one is pretty random, I got these photos from the past few weeks I didn’t edit them much though I’ve recently been using an iPhone for my photography and I absolutely LOVE portrait mode. A few of the photos below are me experimenting with different angles…so bear with me ❤

Hey, y’all! How’s everyone doing? Well, my family and I are surviving and enjoying our time at home! Hope you all had an amazing Easter! My sister B and I made a video basically explaining what Easter 2019 was like compared to Easter 2020 now.
Hey guys!!! I’m so excited to share this for Beautiful Things!! Laura over at Beautiful Things just published her second book! So go check it out (because this book is awesome)!
Surprise! It was only last week that I started thinking about some special things to do on my blog for Easter. I went back and forth between a few ideas, but nothing was working for me. Then, I started thinking. I had this story I’d written a year ago, but it was still rough, and […]
