I always love when I see people zealous for God. I'm zealous for God but sometimes I'm not surrounded by zealous people. I love writing and thank you GGFG for creating this opportunity.
I die the day I stop living and working for God.
God Bless you

Hi! my name is Michelle, I love to write poetry, play piano, and run. I am the oldest of three siblings. But out of all of this we must always remember that God is the most important.

Writer: Adebisi A.
I am Bisi, a teen girl and I love to write. I maintain a cordial relationship with God. I love to help people. I hope that my works will inspire people. I am also a determined girl. Commitment to glorifying God: encouraging people. It seems tough, but, with a commitment to God, it's easy.
Writer: Abby P.
I am a 15-year old homeschooled student from Gilmer, Texas. I like almost all kinds of Christian music and enjoy attending concerts by Christian artists. In my spare time I like to: read, play various instruments (piano, ukulele, guitar, and drums), and keep up with my favorite artists on Twitter. I also enjoy playing the piano at local churches.
Writer: Abigail G.
Hi, I'm Abigail! I was saved when I was ten years old and God stole my heart that night. There is nothing truly amazing about a normal high school girl like me except that I'm loved by the Creator of the universe and I want to live every day for Him! I love playing guitar and being a part of my youth group at church, He can use anything in our lives for His glory:)
Writing well is a gift and passion straight from God himself and I've never wanted to use it for anything else but serving Him and serving others.
Writer: Abby W.
Hi! My name is Abby W. I absolutely love God, my family, reading and swimming. I am inspired by the Bible and hope to use writing to glorify God and encourage others. Through God's grace I have persevered through struggles, and I pray that by sharing my experiences with you we can grow in our faith together. God has gifted each of us with the Holy Spirit; let us glorify God by encouraging each other and igniting our passion for Christ.
Writer: Alexie M.
My name is Alexie and my greatest passion is writing. I am now 13 years old, meaning the bullying, boys, emotion, and all the other teen girl struggles are intense! But I believe in God every step of the way and follow Jesus's footprints. I would love writing new articles for GGFG. I promise to write only what God calls me to when Gods calls me to.
Writer: Allison A.
Hi! I'm Allison and I am almost 15 years old. I've been going to church my whole life and I am not baptized, but I would like to be someday. I am currently struggling with OCD and that has been difficult with my relationship with God, but I want to trust that He will help me through this. One of my favorite Scriptures is Philippians 4:6-7: "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
Writer: Alma R.
I grew up in a "Christian" family and home, thinking that I was good enough to go to heaven. When I was 12 and started Junior High, the Lord showed me how evil I could be. For years and years my life was a mess without God. I thought "religious stuff" was boring.
Then, my sin reached me. I felt so lost and lonely... so condemned.... and the Lord reminded me that Christ came to save me not to condemn me, He died to pay my debt for sin. It was hard to believe, I had been so bad... But then again He showed me that He wanted to have mercy on me. I believed. I believed He saved me when He was dying on that cross.
He has given me a new life, now I want to live to know Him and serve Him, to proclaim and honor Christ. I'm commited to fear the Lord all the time, and to seek Him with all my heart, so I can share His love with everyone who needs it.
Writer: Andrea O.
Hi, I am Andrea. I fell in love with Jesus when I was 14. It seemed like the "uncool" thing to do then and a lot of my friends hated and literally fought me because of it. They felt I turned away from them. But I let God build me up through His word. Now decades later most of them have turned to love Him too, and I've become a place of comfort for many of them. Being a girl isn't easy, being a Christian girl is even tougher. But it's so amazing how beautiful He makes our lives when we stick with Him.
Now married and with two beautiful children, I look back and wish I had even loved Him earlier. He really adds colour to everything about us. Get to know Him for yourself, He's the One person who can reach out to you in your deepest despair and make you whole, a courageous woman, one other women can look up to and find solace in! It's never too late to turn to Him.
My walk with Jesus has been exciting; I have seen Him always show His faithfulness from the big things to the little things so I am willing to encourage others through my personal experiences with Him from the Word all to the praise and glory of His name.
Writer: Annie Lark
I have really been a Christian my whole life, raised by Christian parents, and in Church every Sunday. When asked when my special moment of bringing Christ into my heart was, my answer is, "I've had Him there all along."
God has done wonderful things for my family, and that's how I know he's there for all of us. I'm blessed to have learned about God since I was very young, and I want others to know Him as soon as possible. My mom homeschools me and my two sisters, and we do a Bible study every day.
It's wonderful to know that God cares about every being on this Earth, and that no one will ever be alone. I want others to feel His comfort as well.
Writer: Arianna E.
I have been a Christian since I accepted Jesus into my heart when I was 3. Five years ago, I suddenly hit the desert (a dry spot when you don't feel GOD's presence). Thoughts of suicide came to mind but were always pushed away from the fear of pain and that my best friend would kill me. =) Thoughts of running away and giving my family an easier time entered my mind as well.
Last year, I realized that I was committing the same sin over and over. I also realized that I was being a complete jerk to my friends who loved me. I repented of my sins. But Satan kept on telling me that I wasn't forgiven and making me doubt and search for GOD even more. My relationship with him grew and temptation got greater. I learned many lessons and saw many things GOD was revealing to me.
Four or so weeks ago, my youth group has a worship and prayer time called, The Upper Room, after youth group for the college age and young adults. I know I'm not but my sister and brother are taking classes (17 and 16). During that time, I prayed for GOD to reveal Himself to me and for more that I forgot. But I heard the word patience repeated into my mind.
"GOD I want to see you now!" I told him honestly. But all I heard was patience. So after awhile I finally decided to pray for patience.
Last week, at the Upper Room, we were praying over someone (who I will leave anonymous), when I noticed people speaking tongues. I prayed to speak in tongues, but came to the point where I said,
"GOD, I understand that it will be in your time. Now I am happy with that." Then I prayed for the person again. A little while later my youth pastor asked me what was on my heart. I told him what I had just prayed for. I started to get very excited! He brought me over to his wife and gathered two other adults. He smiled,
"This kid wants to be wants to be filled with the spirit." Kid is what he calls all "kids" under the age of 30. They prayed for me and suddenly my legs began to shake like there was earthquake. The peace of GOD was souring inside of me! A tongue I didn't recognize was on my tongue! I became to speak in tongues! The Holy Spirit had entered a sinner! I was crying and laughing! In the car ride home that was what I was doing, crying and laughing. As I wrote this the same feeling has entered me again! Our GOD is amazing and I love him so much more than I have ever before!
New Writer: Avery J.
Well, I love God, I love to write, and so far I like this website a lot. I see the need for some new materials and am willing to bring in some fresh, Christian posts. My faith comes first, and I believe Jesus is the son of God, and has forgiven me from my sin because of my belief in his death, but I still sin and must often ask forgiveness again. I'm not sure what you're looking for, but give me a chance and I'll give you what I've got.
I believe what girls in our society are lacking is God, no beauty or fame but young and older woman alike need The Lord to be happy; I would love to creatively show them that.
Writer: Bailey H.
Hey everyone! My name is Bailey and I'm 13 years old! I'm in love with Jesus and I hope everyone who reads my writings eventually will be too! I feel like God puts everyone here in this world for a good reason and I feel like mine is to encourage people and make them feel great, because everyone goes through those stages where it's hard... but God will help you through it. I'm committed to Him as well!!
I would like to write for GGFG because I know what these other girls are going through, and that God wants to share His wise words through me to help these girls.
Writer: Beatrix C.
Jello! (My way of saying hello. :P) My name is Beatrix and I'm a girl like you. The normal problems for girls, boys, bullying, depression problems. I've been through all that. And I'm still going through. But God has helped me every step of the way. I could depend on Him. I could my pour my heart out to Him, and lift burdens from my soul. I used to be a very quiet sad girl, till I met God. He helped me get through a lot of things, along with my friends and family.
Returning Writer: Bella
I love singing, acting, writing, and glorifying my God! I am homeschooled and absolutely am ecstatic to be working on a website that praises God and encourages girls my age to become women of God!
I am thirteen, dealing with every typical teenage girl problem - the only difference is I have a God who loves and helps me through these problems, and I hope I can inspire you to let God help you too!
I am into musical theatre ALOT, so my second passion (next to God) is Theatre! I remember when I wasn't a Christian, there was this continual guilt in my heart every day and night about something I had done. And I cried sometimes. But then, at 11:00 at night, in beginning of April, I came crying in my parents bedroom that I needed God, and I prayed for God. God is Good!
New Writer: Carmel H.
Hi, my name is Carmel. I am 12 years old (13 in two months). I love God, family, friends, and all animals. I also like to draw and be outdoors. I'm homeschooled so I don't have to deal with as much drama as school kids but I still see a lot of teenagers hurting. It makes me wish that they had God in their lives. I hope my writing for GGFG inspires girls to seek God. I also hope that writing for GGFG will help me grow into the girl God wants me to be and connect me with other girls that can share their thoughts and faith.
I've committed myself to being pure physically, mentally, and spiritually so I encourage other girls to do the same.
Returning Writer: Christina V.
I'll start off by telling you a little about myself. I'm married, with no kids yet, and I'm finishing up my certificate in medical coding. In my free time I enjoy reading, music, shopping, and writing.
I could say I've been a Christian all my life but that's not exactly true. I was raised in church all my life and around age seven I got saved. In my teenage years, I had a time of re-dedication, and I really tried my best to stay strong in the Lord and involved in church and with Christian friends.
I was on a pretty good path but after I turned 18 and had more freedom, things started to change. Not all of my friends were Christians anymore and they were starting to bring me down. Fortunately, I realized this, and I pretty much cut these people out my life. Things started to look up again, but then I started dating a guy who was a Christian but was immature and wasn't really following the Lord like he should. I knew deep down inside it probably wasn't the best relationship I could have had, but I ignored those thoughts and instead stayed with him and did a lot of things I regret now. Then he broke up with me and it about killed me for a little while because I really cared about him a lot. It was one of the hardest things I have had to go through and I spent a lot of time feeling very depressed. But I tried to snap out of it and get my life back where it needed to be.
I went back to school, got involved in church activities, and started working more hours so I could move on from this and not be thinking about him all the time. I decided I wanted to be single and not worry about guys again for a long time.
But then, I started to have feelings for this guy from my church that I had barely even been friends with. I never had felt this way for him before and I didn't think that he liked me like that. But he did and he asked me out and less than a year later we got married. He's an amazing guy, a Christian who's on the right track following the Lord. I'm very blessed to have him and I'm looking forward to all our years together in the future.
One thing I've learned is if you make mistakes, you've got to just accept it and move on from it. Don't beat yourself up over it because you're not the only one who has ever had regrets.
1 John 1:9 says “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” We have a second chance in Christ!
Writer: CJ (Marketing Staff)
I have had a lot of challenges in my life, and God has helped me through them. I want to write on GGFG to glorify God through my talents. God has really changed my life. I am an artist, a writer, and a musician/singer/song writer. I play violin and piano. I am amazed about everything God does. Singing and listening to music helps me to relax. I became a Christian when I was seven years old. But when I was eleven I began to understand what a Christian really is and that God is real. Also when I was eleven, I was diagnosed with a tumor. I wondered why God had let this happen. I was so upset. I pretty much lived in the hospital. On my 12th birthday, I was so thankful for having a birthday that I cried. God has used that to help me grow closer to Him and see the glass "half full." I have had a good childhood with interesting experiences. God has a plan for me, and for you, too. We are part of His master plan.
Writer: Daisy B.
Hi, my name is Daisy and I love the Lord. I have gone through some things that could make me hate God, but I never did. I was a foster child and the lady I lived with killed my four year old brother. There is a lot more to that... I also have a sister who I take care of, but I am just going to get to the point - I have now been adopted into a wonderful family who loves me. I prayed to God when I was in this abusive foster home before I got adopted to get me to a place where I would be happy and loved and He gave that to me, and many more things. I love the Lord and will do anything to help others.
Writer: Destiny A.
My name is Destiny A. I live in Rockwall, Texas and attend First Baptist Dallas. I go to Rockwall Heath High School and I have been trying set girls in a godly direction. I have been helping and talking to girls at my school that are pregnant and trying to give advice and thinking about WWJD. I want to give back to people and be a high school Sunday school teacher when I grow up.
I want help girls to be a godly girl for God, talk through things with them, and let them know that people care. I feel that God is calling me towards this and I know I should be a writer now.
Writer: Elizabeth A.
I'm a young teenage girl who writes, sings, and draws. I'm in love with Jesus, and I want to live my life to glorify Him. I drink lots and lots of tea, read lots of classics, and I'm a big Whovian! I love to be outside and to read poetry, and someday, I hope to travel all over the world and show God's love to other people!
I commit to using my work to show love and worship to God, and to encourage and give hope to anyone who reads it.
Writer: Elizabeth D.
I've grown up in a Christian home. I came to Christ at age 6. I don't remember much about my early Christian life. All I know is that I was on fire for God and telling everyone I knew what He had done for me. Then in first grade I practically shoved the Gospel down one of my friend's throat in my enthusiasm to tell him about God. All I think I did was push him farther from Christ. Then, having realized what I'd done, I pulled away from sharing Christ. I was scared that I would push more people away from Him. I must've missed tons of opportunities because of my fearful stubbornness. Then, last year, at the end of sixth grade, I had a sleepover with my friends. One of my friends told me that she finally was ready to accept Christ. She already knew the Gospel because we were going to a Christian school and she had a Christian family too. I cried because I didn't want to push her away, even though I wouldn't have anyways. Finally I overcame my fear and now I'm more comfortable sharing God. Now He has me in a youth group where most people don't have a relationship with Christ and is using me here. I realize now that I had to overcome my fear before He could use me like He is now. I want everything that I do to lift others up and put God first.
Writer: Ella P.
I have always been a Christian. I was raised to believe in God, and went to church almost every Sunday. It was only until just a few months ago that I decided to dedicate my life to God.
I think how I really truly met God was when I started to read the Bible. When I read His word I kind of felt something inside of me. I had always tried to give and be a good person but when I found God I had finally found a reason to. He was always there for me. I found a church that I'm still a part of and LOVE, I've started listening to Christian music (which has really helped me to connect with God) and have been praying a lot more. My life is full of meaning, joy, and purpose now that I've found the Lord and I couldn't be more thankful.
Writer: Emily M.
Hey, my name is Emily and I come from a small town in Kenya called Nyeri. I deal with kids from the surrounding communities who are not well to do through my organization called INSPIRE.
Here is my story:
For a long time I have wanted to feel worth of something. My life, like my mother would say, reads like a best selling thriller. Recently, I started working with children. At first, it was giving them books from my personal library, and now I have started playing soccer with them, and will soon be doing so much more. The thing I love most is that I have learned just how much God loves me by looking through their lives. We share advice and we share God and they just gobble up that information, by the way. You see, when I am here complaining about how much I don't have and then I give out a pencil, or a rubber, or a book, and I see how one of these kids appreciates it, then I know I have a lot to be thankful to God about.
I like to read, I'm inspired by so many things - the main thing is God. He has given me so much to be thankful for, and He is faithful. I am also very blessed to have such an amazing testimony. Without God and strong people around me, I would be lost.
Writer: Erin E.

Writer: Gabby M.
I became a Christian when I was fourteen. In my younger years I believed in God, but I wasn't sure if I could call myself a Christian because I didn't really know what it meant to be one. I also didn't attend church regularly until I was older.
As an early teenager I got caught up in rebellion, which resulted in a lot of pain. I ran away twice and almost got into substance abuse. Hitting hard times and making mistakes led me to an addiction to self-harm. For 6 months straight and off and on for a few more months, I struggled a lot with cutting and depression and thoughts of suicide. After actually attempting suicide, I talked to a woman I knew, who helped me start to learn the truth about God. I really listened to the things she said because at that point I knew that I was out of control and that I had to do something. I had let the stress and pain of life completely take over and I was in danger of dying if I didn't stop hurting myself.
I asked God that if he really cared about me, to show me. A couple weeks later, my family and I got a call from my aunt who was living in Kansas. They had moved there to get a job that paid a lot, but her husband hadn't been hired yet and they were running out of savings. They had enough money to keep the kids fed, but nothing else. When they called, they told us that not only was he hired, but they had work immediately lined out for him. We cared a lot about them since they were family of course, and we were overjoyed, we could hear them screaming and praising God on the other end, and I knew this was God answering my request.
I went to my room and started sobbing and told God how sorry I was for how I had been living and asked if He would take care of me. Time and time again since, He has had my back. I can never thank Him enough.
After that, I slowly eased off of the cutting. It was one of the hardest things I have ever done, but I am so glad I did it and I have been able to let God heal me and use me to help others in similar situations. I am now 16 years old and I have come out of those years stronger than ever before and I am alive and well because of Jesus. So that's my story. If you are reading this and struggling with self harm or anything else, feel free to talk to me, I would love to hear from you! (Email: email@example.com and make the subject: "To Gabby." Her username is "xxBulletSoulxx" on here.)Thanks for reading! Isaiah 53:5 (NIV) "But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.
Writer: Haley B.
Hey! I'm Haley and let me just first say that God is number one in my life. I have been through some hard struggles with some serious sin and I know that God has called me to girl's ministry and to help others come to Him through these bad situations. I continuously struggle on a day-to-day basis of waiting on the right guy to come to me but it's extremely hard! I love sharing the gospel with people on my college campus as well as inviting them to Campus Crusade for Christ "CRU" meetings that we have on my campus. I love Jesus and hanging out with my best friends.
I commit to waiting on the right one and to encourage other girls to do that because God has something so much better out there planned for us than what we think we have.

Manager: Hillary Beth
(and wonderful friend! -Kimberly) (This site's idea is the result of a dream I had, and that Kimberly, Christina, my sister, and Oksana helped come true! Thank you all!)
My name is Hillary Beth. I am 24 years old, and God has blessed me all of my life. Growing up, I had one younger sister and a mother and a father. Most of my childhood my mother home schooled me. Ever since I was little, I have gone to church. When I was four, my mother taught me my first Bible verse. My parents prayed with me every night before I went to bed.
One Sunday morning at church, we were just finished with the praise and worship when our leader asked us to bow our heads, as normal. This time he said something different - that a person is not born saved, but that they must accept Christ's gift and give their life to God. I had never realized that before; I was nine years old, yet for the first time I saw how much God loved me, and that all the good deeds in the world do not let me into heaven. I prayed to God right then. I told Him that I knew I was a sinner, and there was no way I could get to heaven by myself. I told Him I believed that Jesus was God and came to earth to die for our sins and rise again to give us eternal life. Then I asked Him to forgive me. He did.
The fourth grade year was the worst year of my life so far. This was the last year my mother did not home school me. She made a commitment to the public school I attended to do their first yearbook, and as a result of this and being involved in other school activities, was too busy to be able to notice me. (I did get my mother's approval before posting this.)
Because I did not turn to God, I was not really sure where I stood on issues, and I was facing decisions seemingly alone each day at school. I felt too tired to read my Bible and forgot to pray. I hated my life. I had no friends; everyone seemed to be my friend as long as they thought it would benefit them, and then threw me out. I regret not taking the opportunity to be a witness for Christ that year.
I will tell you this - don't disconnect from church! Surround yourself with Christian friends! Email makes that easier than ever! And make sure you find adults who can give you sound advice from the Scriptures - you will be blessed by them! Read God's Word every day. It has so many treasures waiting for us to find! It will encourage and strengthen you throughout the day. Don't let Satan lure you to miss your quiet time with God, because Satan will try, and you would miss out on the source of our power! God speaks to people through the Bible. And pray! Keep an open line between you and God. He created you to love and know Him, and even though He knows who you are and everything about you, He desires a relationship with you, and enjoys talking with you. My first ministry opportunities included helping in the 4 and 5 year old's class and doing V.B.S.'s in the summer. I took my jobs seriously, learned a lot, and really enjoyed teaching the little children about Jesus. They were so cute! I've helped in the 1-3rd grade classes, and they are adorable, also. Since they are older, they can do more complicated activities, and they can read and write. More recently I've helped in 3 year olds classes, but I've worked with special needs children off-and-on pretty much the whole time. I currently have a paid job at my church for every other Sunday, assisting the preschool director.
When I was in 7th grade, I started going to Awana. It has been a truly life-changing experience. My leaders have been a real blessing to me. This summer one of them, Mr. Gruber, went to be with the Lord. It was the same week I finished my last book, before I attained the highest award, the Citation Award for 10 books. I enjoy memorizing the verses and doing projects that help me learn more about God. Since it was always a fairly small group I attended, I felt a good kind of pressure to keep going in the right direction. I hope to be an Awana leader again after I am done with college.

New Writer: Kaitlyn F.
Hello! I'm Kaitlyn and I love to be creative. Writing is a way I express my love for God. I love to be encouraging to other girls by showing God's love. I love school and I love math and I love to combine those two things to honor God.
God is the first thing I write for, and my words are to be encouraging to all who read it.
Writer: Karen Finn
Growing up, I had a lot of head knowledge about religion, but didn't have a relationship with God. I became a godly girl when I was in my late 20's. My husband and I started attending a solid, Bible-preaching church, where we grew up "spiritually" and learned so much from the Bible.
I used to think I wanted a career in the medical field, but God's plans for me were quite different. Since 1989, I have been a stay-at-home Mom to my five kids. I have been involved in various church ministries, but I feel so sure that God has since given me a desire to teach and encourage young women.
After many years of freelance writing, (another part of God's plan for me), I felt burdened to write Bible study material for teen girls, and have recently published my first book. It's called "Is Your Fruit Sweet or Sour? A Teen Girl's Guide to Christian Living." (More information is available at http://www.preceptpublishing.com/.)
God's Word is the answer for all of our problems!

Writer: Lauren L.
My name's Lauren and I am 15. I am a real girly girl - I love clothes, make-up and shopping. I am a Christian but I am far from perfect - but God loves me no matter what and He will always be with me and hold out His helping hand to me.
I go to church and I am an assistant leader at youth club. I love helping out there and I love little children. I sometimes help out with Sunday school, too. I love my church and everyone who goes there; they are all like family.
I have always had God in my life since I was very young but after my mum and dad split up I have had so much to deal with, so much hurt and pain, so I began to think, Why would God let this happen to me? Why won't God make all this mess go away? I even began to wonder if God hated me or whether He even existed! But last year I started going to a new church because I hadn't been in like 2 years. God brought me to the new church because He knew everything I was going through and wanted to help me. He loves me so much and He has strengthened me so much. God hurts but He also bandages up, He injures but His hands also heal - Job 5:18. He has blessed me with a few friends who I could trust with my life. They are as close as family and mean the world to me.
Since I got God back into my life I have been a changed person. I am way more happy and I have more confidence in myself and I have done things in life that I never would have been able to do without God. My faith has grown rapidly. I still am going through so many struggles, and I have so many tough decisions right now, but the Lord has helped me so much and blessed my life. I know that I'm not strong enough to go through life's hardest trials, but that is ok, because I don't have to be strong enough - because I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Just knowing I can rely on Him and pray to Him, and just knowing He's always with me and has a beautiful and amazing plan for my life, is just incredible! I mean, what more could I possibly want?
One thing that I have learned through all the hard times is that there can be blessings through all the pain and hard times. One of them is that I have grown closer to God and I am the closest I have ever been to Him - even more close than when everything in my life was good. Another blessing is I can help others who have gone through and are going through hard times. I have such an amazing friend... she is like a sister to me and we have become so close because we can both relate and understand everything each other is going through. I am so thankful to God for my beautiful friend and sister Kaylee, you are a real answer to my prayers (love you so much) and I just know God put us together for a reason and He will let us meet one day!
Well, I just pray and hope that because of everything I have gone through I can help and be a blessing to others. That is so important to me. “To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived - this is to have succeeded.” If you need someone to help and support you I promise I'm here for you always and I will be able to relate to you and I don't judge. I just know God's plan for me is to help others and that's the one thing I want out of life.
Lots of love,

I came to Christ at a young age, but I never fully understood what it meant. Yes, my mom helped me ask God to be in my heart, but I never fullly got that God had actually died for all people. I learned all the Bible verses, listened to the stories, and gave my opinion, but it was never like now. I now feel that the Holy Spirit has truly given me the strength to help me show the world God's love.
After teaching a devotional at my school, I learned that I also enjoy teaching about God. Then, when I made a community on Google+, I was looking for devotionals to put on it, and I found this website. I thought it was a great idea and opportunity for my friends and me.
I have a big love for Christ, and I hope that I will be able to get through to people, not just by words, but through this love.
Hello fellow sister in Christ!
I'll start out with a little bit about myself: When I was four I accepted Jesus into my heart after watching a video about Jesus knocking on the door of my heart.
Three years ago I moved from Kentucky to a small town in Oregon. For a year I lived at my great grandma's house while my mom worked as her caretaker. My dad went to Texas for about three months, sometimes coming home on the weekends. Finally, after he got back we moved into a new house. My mother still went to my great grandma's house to take care of her, so we saw her less. My great grandma died in February of 2011 so my mom got to come home.
When I was nine I felt that God wanted me to write for his glory and I've been trying to do it ever since. I've been homeschooled since I was eight and love it. This year I entered a piano competition and I just made it to State. My favorite subjects are reading, writing, and history.
Writer: Maggie T.
Hi! I love writing and hope to honor Christ though this activity that I love so much.
I am 12 years old and growing up in a Christian environment. Through the years God has shown me my gift in writing, though I am unexperienced I hope to develop my skill while sharing my knowledge of Christ with others. God has also directed me to start a ministry called ABC Collections, a collection of baby clothing that is given to Choices Pregnancy Center. I have always had a yearning to help with the pro-life cause and feel like this is a way for me to help women who have the decision to abort or not.
Throughout my 12 years I have never had the opportunity to write for Christ before, so I am very excited to start and hope that my writing can be a blessing to those who read it.
I love the LORD and want to glorify Him through my writing. I also hope to encourage others in their walk with Christ.

My name is Mandy Morrow and I live with my family (human and furry) in Tennessee. I am going into my Junior year of high school as of this coming August. When I'm not writing, I'm either out shopping or reading a good book.
I love my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and share that love with everyone through my writing ability. After all, it is a blessing from Him!

My biological dad died when I was like 1 and I never got to meet him. To this day I still wonder who he was, what he looked like...etc.
Well when I was able to read...My adopted parents started reading the Bible to us and then at age 10 I accepted Christ into my heart.
Then my grandma died of an aneurism... much unexpected and I never got to say goodbye. She never even made it to the hospital, and she was only 58 yrs old. Then 2 yrs after my grandpa died. Then about 2 yrs ago I was in an accident... I won't go into details but I can tell you what I was told because I can't remember a lot. I was in a bike accident...My brother ran me over with his bike on a Monday morning in July of 2006. I was rushed to the hospital and the doctors didn't think I would have lived; the Emts even lost me for 5 min in the ambulance. Anyway, I was bruised on my whole right side but no broken bones. I had a huge goose egg on my forehead, and the doctors said that if I had hit my head any harder on the ground I would have been dead instantly because of my size and the impact of the ground. Well, I recovered. It took 2 weeks and then a month to fully recover.
That weekend I was singing amazing grace and it hit me that that song really was talking about how amazing God is. Now I look at life as a second chance to really change someone or myself. I love to sing and write poems so it all helps.
I have nightmares when I see a show where someone is hurt or dies from a bike accident or a motorcycle accident and it makes me shake and feel faint and feel really sick and dizzy but I know that God is with me and there was a reason why I didn't die that day. So for anyone who thinks that God isn't real... Read this and you will know that He has a purpose for you and he will never leave you. Now I read my Bible every day, and I love going to church, but when I sing it has a new meaning to it.
I am now doing online college. It has been really rough.
I have faced so many horrible things; one being my cousin committed suicide in Jan of 2009. I still have the Lord Jesus Christ to help with everything. So how do I know God is real? Because He didn't let me die that day - He let me live to tell this to you! Because my grandparents and my father are up in heaven...the people I am living for. I am so on fire for God. I go to church, I read my Bible sometimes 4 times a day, I have led many people to Christ throughout the years; I have helped many people and that is why I want to be a social worker. He has given me peace. And knowing that God is here with me really helps me deal with everything that has happened lately. Even if He doesn't seem near, He is there, so trust in Him and He will guide you all the way.
The song amazing grace means so much to me.That song is what kept me living.
I am now 22, and still loving the Lord, and sometimes I do feel like I'm far away from Him. I'm hoping by writing again, that I will get to know Him again like I used to.
Hi! My parents are missionaries in West Africa and when we came for furlough I heard about GGFG and dicided to join. I hope that I can make a difference in other girls lives and be a missionary to when I grow up. I pray that all my wrightings will be wholesome.
I am going to be baptised and when I heard about GGFG I wanted to commit my life to God and help serve others and shine the light of Jesus in the far corners of the universe.
Writer: McKayla R.
Here is a little about myself- I am 14 years old and in the 9th grade. I have gone though a lot in the past few months, but with the help of my family, my friends, and my God, the pieces are slowly being mended. I started writing major when I was 10, but have suffered from a 6 month writers block. Hopefully there will be more stories from me soon.
Sometimes I get caught in the "in-crowd" and it takes me a while to get myself straight, but once a friend always a friend.
I strive to show God through me in every little thing I do. My favorite Bible verse is: "My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; he is mine forever." - Psalm 73:26
I try to go to church as much as possible, but normally just spend Sunday’s watching church on a live stream.
Writer: Megan H. (Asst. Manager)
Hello, My name is Megan. I am 17. I love the Lord with all my heart! I have so much to be thankful for. I have a wonderful family with 8 siblings.
Some of my favorite things to do are Photography and catching little critters. Through those things you can see how wondrously God created this earth.
Every person needs to be encouraged every now and then. No matter how close you are to God or how far away, there will always be tripping blocks in the road. And I have always wanted to help people who are in need of encouragement or guidance along the way. I tend to stuggle with myself alot. I am hoping that through writing I can learn new things and grow closer to God.
New Writer: Megan W.
Megan is a high schooler with an amazing story through Christ. He has given her strength even when the worst looked likely. God has taught her many things through her autistic, epileptic little brother. Ben is her pride and joy and by Gods grace, she is has found peace in the storm.
God is my hope and my strength, I wish to encourage others so they can find the same Light.
Writer: Meggie K.
Hey! I'm Meggie and I'm 12 years old. I like to read, write, play soccer and tennis, and do crafts. I grew up in a bible believing household-both my parents are Christians-so I became a Christian at age 4. Ever since I was little, I've loved to sing especially songs that praise God. I connect with songs like they were meant for me. I've always loved God, but a few months ago, I really wanted to start digging deep into the bible to learn its biblical meaning. The bible's not a fantasy book; Its happenings are just as true and real as last year's or the Civil War's. I always read about people my age making and selling things to make money for charity or start raising money some other way. I wanted to do something for charity (or bringing people to Jesus) too! I still wonder today about what I could do, but at least I know that I can use my singing, writing, or extra school activities and school smarts to do something. I feel like God wants me to use these gifts He's given me to serve him and I will try my best to fulfill his purpose for me.
God has given me the special gift of writing and I want to use that gift to bring people to Him and glorify Him.
Writer: Micaela H.
My name is Micaela Harris and first off, I love God. I am fourteen years old, almost fifteen and have had many experiences from sickness to teen drama. I thought it was a good idea to try and reach out to those who don't know God and spread the Word throughout the world. Well, I would like to be a writer for this website. I love to write about things I am passionate about, and I am passionate about God! So, I thought this would be a good place to start. I can basically write about anything! You name it, you got it! I also am very interested in academics, sports (tennis and soccer), traveling, reading, socializing, going to church and other things.
I also love gospel/ Christian music, Indie, and country music. I love to tell people about the saving Grace of Jesus and by writing about all the things I love, it just brings people together, being happy with life. So concluding, I appreciate this website very much and I hope you will give me the chance to write for you guys.
Thank you, God Bless, Micaela H.

Writer: Mikayla T.
God came into my life when my stepfather (whom I call dad) was at work. As my dad was at work his friend, Tristan, started talking to him about God. He encouraged us to go to church with him. As we started going to church every Sunday, I started to enjoy it. We have been going for four and half years. I really love going to hear different things about God. So that`s how God came into my life!

Hey there! My name is Miranda, and I'm a 23-year-old recent college graduate. My life changed at the age of 15, when I met Jesus, my one true love. I'm an aspiring writer, and everyday God is showing me more ways that I can use my talent to further His kingdom. The Lord has taught me so much about faith and grace during my growing up years, and I want to use this knowledge to help other young women. When I'm not writing, you can find me reading a good book, watching a good musical, traveling, or making memories with friends. motto = I fully believe that God uses our talents and experiences as a way to reach and encourage others. If I can touch even one person through my writing, that is a blessing.

Hi, my name is Jane and I'm fifteen now. My life has been difficult, with people teasing me and stuff. I often wonder what I did to make them tease me like that, and it used to hurt a lot until I began to talk to God more personally and took Him into my life.
God really helps me find who my true friends are, and gives me the strength to overcome everything the world throws at me. I am still bad at keeping commitments, but I ask His help every single day and I trust that He has the best plan for me.

Hey, my name is Samantha and I have been trying to figure out a way to serve God in a way I know how. I love to write and am an aspiring writer, so I hope that by writing I can help others and myself through this. I struggled with my faith after getting diabetes and going through my middle school career. However, now I stand strong and am going to continue to strive to live for him.
I commit to glorifying God through what I write and how I encourage others because I feel like that is a huge way to make a difference.
Writer: Samantha W.
I am amazed how God can use ordinary days to show us things about Himself. And with me, it's almost always a humorous way.
One of the greatest feelings I've ever experienced is when I write something that shares a Biblical truth. With my own limitations, I know I couldn't have written it out clearly without God's help. It never ceases to amaze me how He can work through me--imperfections and all.
Besides pouring over my writing and reading, I enjoy dancing to my own beat, romping with my border collie, and spending time with my family, which consists of my parents and older brother and sister.
I have my own blog and website where I share some of my antics as an adventurous introvert. Believe it or not, they go hand in hand. I hope you visit me there too! :) http://samanthawooten.com
I find satisfaction in expressing myself through writing, and if my work can be relatable to another's walk with God, I'm blessed beyond words.
Writer: Sarah K.
I became a believer at age eleven. I have grown up in a Christian family, and my parents taught me diligently about God, the Bible, and Jesus' death on the cross. I did not think about becoming a Christian much until a boy my age in my church became one. That strangely moved my heart, and for the first time being a Christian didn't seem like it was only for adults. I began to read my Bible more, pray, and to see my sin before God; that went on for about a month. Then, one morning, I woke up and knew something was different. I suddenly realized I was a Christian! It was the best day of my life! I was baptised a month later, and began to read my Bible daily, listen hard at church, and find out more about what I believe. And that brings us to the present day.

I really have a passion for writing and reaching out to other girls who need hope and assurance in Jesus. My father is a pastor (so I'm a PK!) and my mom is the best mom ever! She home-schools my little brother, my big sister, and I, though we used to go to public school. My other passion is music, and I love to sing and play piano (though my older sis is SO much better at the piano!!!) and I also like to write poems and some songs, though the poems aren't very good. I'm excited and grateful for this opportunity to write for GGFG, and I love it!
Writer: Shanikya B.
Hello, My name Is Shanikya B. I am 19 years old and I live in California. One of my passions in life (besides loving God) is writing (and reading). When I write I go into another world it seems; I get so lost in the moment. But anyways, I love God with all that I am and I love writing, and the fact that I can combine those two things together is mind blowing. It's amazing. I hope and pray that I get the opportunity to both share my love and passion for God through my passion for writing. God gave me the gift of writing so I want to share my gift to encourage others.

Writer: Tanya F.
My name is Tanyaradzwa F. When I received Jesus as my Lord and Saviour my mind was transformed (Romans 12:2) , and I was baptised with water and with the Holy Spirit. I believe in the Word of God for the Bible says, "a man will not live by bread alone, but by every word of God." He healed me and delivered me from the spirit of death. He gave me hope and blessed me with all spiritual blessings. He does this for all who believe in Him. I'm a worshiper, I love writing and singing, and my inspirational verse is, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" Philippians 4:13.
Hi! Im Teresa! I was raised Christian, and i went to church since i was born, but I never really understood the real meaning of being a christian, until a few years ago, when I hung with the wrong crowd, then I finally realized that I was in sin, and I wasn't pleasing God, so I confessed my sins, and ever since, I've gotten closer to God! My favorite scriptures are John 15:13-14, Philippians 4:13, Proverbs 19:2, Joel 2:25, and 2 Corinthians 3:15-16.
I love to write! And I hope to inspire and encourage people, all glory goes to Jesus Christ!

Hello everyone! My name is TreAnna (pronounced Tray Anna :) ) You can call me Tree, Trea, Ann, Anna, Annie...just whatever! I am 16 years old and GOD has blessed me beyond anything I could ever hope for with my writing! I was Saved December 12, 2006...and baptized the following January!
I go to the most amazing church, First Baptist! and our youth group is always getting into some kind of zany adventure! Our old youth pastor, Boo, one time had us go on this scavenger hunt. We were split into three teams and well let's just say we all get really competitive and went to "hunting" as fast as possible. However this wasn't a normal list...a few of the activities included:
Playing Marco Polo in Dollar General
Singing YMCA with a group of strangers at a restaurant
Singing the Oscar Meyer Weiner song in Piggly Wiggly ~and~
Building a human pyramid in front of the courthouse
While it was the most fun I've ever had in my life I don't think I'll ever want to do it again...well maybe...
GOD has blessed me with an amazing family and the bestest friends I will ever know...so basically all I have left to say is this GOD is good, HE'll help you weather the storm or HE'll keep you above the water so you don't drown...

Hello! I am a teenage girl from the place where sun is always shining, Florida. I go to one awesome church called Tri-City Baptist. It is the place where I got my life right. Two years ago is when I started going there. The people, the Pastor's family, the messages, they all helped my walk with the Lord. I am applying, because I despretally want to fill every single aspect of my life with the Lord.
My commitment is to simply show the love that God has shown to me, to others.
Writer: Trish M.
My name is Trish and I am fifteen years old. I currently live in Australia, but I was born in Africa. I moved here when I was around 9 years old. I Love Jesus Christ and would love to write about him. I go to a church called Forward in Faith Ministries. I sing, dance and play keyboard at my church, and I just recently began to speak in tongues.
Jesus has helped through so much in my life. When I was younger, my friends showed me this video. It was a pornographic video and for a while I started watching them with my friends. Then there was a conference at my church and a youth pastor came . He talked about this and I realized I had been committing sexual immorality. I confessed to God and of course he saved me and forgave me. I have been free ever since. That was about 2 or 3 years ago.
When I was eleven, my baby sister passed away. I was so heartbroken and upset but God got me through it. In September this year, my grandad passed away. He and I were so close. I did not blame God because I knew he was in a lot of pain and I thanked God for his nearly eighty years of life.
Each and everyday I thank God for his everlasting and enduring love. I am a strong, strong, strong Christian who cannot be broken down. Sometimes I slip and fall but God is ALWAYS there to catch me.
I am also a child evangelist teacher at my church. I enjoy working with other Christian/non-Christian girls. I enjoy working with children as well. I love you, Jesus Loves you.
