I’m Kayla Marie, a friendly, Christian country gal. As you probably guessed from the name, Embrace Purity, my desire is to share with you the value of purity. I know that our culture isn’t big on this topic.
With all the images, music, clothing, and movies telling us to ‘follow our heart’ and ‘do what makes us happy’, it’s hard to know where to draw the line. It seems that no matter how hard we try, these things never leave us alone! God has given me a passion to encourage other teen girls in the midst of this crazy world.
It’s easy to feel as if you’re the only person who struggles, but let me be the first to tell you. You’re not alone! There are days when I am tired and worn out. Times when I feel too weak to battle temptation by myself.
The good news is, we don’t have to! In 1 Corinthians 10:13, it says, “No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.”
I know it’s hard, but it’s totally worth it! Nothing in this world can bring us the love and freedom that Christ gives.
I’m so excited to share with you what I have learned about being pure from my own experiences, the people around me, and God’s word! I am a teen girl myself and can relate to what a lot of you are feeling.
I’m a fairly quiet person, especially around new people. That makes it a bit scary when meeting other teens, but God is helping me overcome that fear, one step at a time.
My family consists of my mom; my dad; my sister, Kierstin (author of pawsandfaith.com); and my adorable cat, Angel. I also love horses and music, specifically playing the guitar and singing praises to God! I’m home schooled and love it!
I look forward to sharing my victories, my mistakes, and the love of Christ with you all!
