I have talked previously about how 2017 has been a rebuilding year for me. I have been recreating the person I used to be and striving towards my dreams. A lot of this has been done through prayer, wisdom from family and friends, and journaling. I recently read She's Still There by Chrystal Evans Hurst and it made me realize I am not alone in trying to find the little girl inside of me in my adult life.

This book has been a great reminder that it's okay to need to rewrite your story. It's okay when things do not go according to plan. Because God has it all figured out already. And even when we lose sight of this, He never loses sight of us. She's Still There reminded me that my expectations are not always going to pan out and that's just part of life. It also reminded me that in order to move forward with our lives, we need to forgive the transgressions of our past, just as God has. 

I highly recommend this book to any women who need a reminder that God is in control, to any women who need to press restart, to any women who need peace. She's Still There can be purchased on Amazon, P31 Bookstore, or Audible.

Sometimes I hit a creative block. Coming up with DIY Halloween costumes that are easy to make that I have not done in the past four years of blogging has been a struggle this year. I have to admit I had to turn to Dr. Google this week to help me get the creative juices flowing. However, after searching "DIY Halloween Costumes" I could not help but recreate this look that brought me back to childhood.
