A few weeks ago I had the privilege of meeting one of my IG followers (that I also follow) to do a photoshoot at an amazing location in Los Angeles. Her name is Danielle Torres and she is a SoCal based photographer. We began to follow each other a while back, maybe two years ago, and we have finally met! We met up at the so-loved-by-bloggers Alfred’s Tea spot on Melrose. After chatting for a few, we headed out to the luxurious Greystone Mansion and took in multiple breaths of fresh air as we walked through its glorious design.

One reason why I love social media is because this generation is able to meet people whom we had never encountered in person 15 years ago. It is bananas how a simple follow will let you grow in a community outside of the photos. Danielle and I love creativity and artistry, so shooting with her was a blast and super effortless.

Danielle is 23, has had a lot of ups and downs in life, but is living life so graciously and so expectant for the best to come. I want to say thank you to Danielle for the opportunity and wanted to feature her work on my blog because she is simply amazing. She loves God, wants to set an example for her family and this beautiful generation we live in, and desires to create magic daily.

If you are interested in getting in touch with her, follow her IG account @daniellecelestetorres. She is incredibly sweet, real, and so humble.

West Coast Wonder

lifestyle

As many of you know, I recently moved to California for an internship with the amazing Bianca Olthoff and her ministry, In the Name Of Love. With only one month to figure out if I should have came, how it was all going to be provided for, etc., God has blown me away with everything that has been happening.

Last year I mentioned to God how I wanted to visit the West Coast before I officially moved to NY. Although NY didn’t work out, I still desired to come out to the sunny state of California. During spring break, I remember trying to plan out a birthday trip with the girls out to LA and seeing who would want to join me. That trip also did not happen but needless to say, I am now in the city of Angels every weekend. What is life?!

 

Call it luck or coincidence, I know this has been God all along. I might have missed His direction or made it all up in my mind, I don’t know. What I do know is that His favor and protection have been with me all along. People wish of going places and working towards them, (in which I do too) but when you have God on your side, some things just fall on you because He loves you.

This summer I want to challenge how you see God. I want you to simply ask Him to reveal Himself to you. Not in any specific way; just ask Him. He knows what way will speak to your heart more than I can try to suggest.

God is a God of wonder, of grace, of mystery, and of so much adventure.

I really believe He wants to show us more of who He is. Sometimes this new perspective comes when we ask for those desires we have deep in our hearts. Speak them out! Do you want to travel around the world? Ask Him to make a way and provide right opportunities. Have you thought about starting a book? Begin to write it out and ask Him for wisdom on how to publish it. You’ve never had your own car? Oh, He can make it happen. One of my intern sisters got a car as soon as she came out to California. Trust me, He can do it ALL as we seek Him and obey Him. He will never f a i l us. He will always desire to leave us with wonder.

Pray for me as I am in a new land with new expectations. I am praying for all of you my readers. You are all so amazing! And I cannot wait to share more adventures in the future.

As always, follow me on IG / SnapChat to see what I am up to! Til next time!
