Essential Gear for the Daring Girl

So I pulled out my Daring Book for Girls book the other night and was reminded of how wonderful being a girl (and a daring girl at that) is and can be. But, I realized that there are some things I don't possess that I need to, in order to be a true adventurer. I thought you might benefit from this information as well.

Here is the list of "Essential Gear" according to the book:

1. Swiss Army Knife.  Yeah, definitely need to get one of these ASAP.

2. Bandana check! 

3. Rope and Twine Twine, check! I need to find a good old rope though.

4. Journal and Pencil- with a back-up Pen check and check!

5. Hair band duh.

6. Bungee cord mmm can't say I own my own bungee cord…

7. Flashlight check!

8. Compass definitely need to get one of these. this will also benefit me as a pirate. 

9. Safety Pins always hanging around, but never seem to be around when you need one. 

10. Duct Tape should probably keep a stash of this under my bed...

11. Deck of cards and a good Book have these in excess!

12. Patience good grief. lay it on me, please!

I feel so inspired to go exploring. Adventure is always there if we are willing to seek it out.
Have you been on any expeditions lately? Found treasure of any sort recently? Discovered something new or fascinating today?

If so, tell me all about it!


here's a shout out to my wonderful Sister who just started her blog. Go check it out and comment to let her know you visited! Don't forget to follow her blog, as well. I know it will be a good read! :)

Oh, goodness. Life.

As you've probably noticed, I changed the blog look a little bit… i like to mix things up every so often. Keep it exciting, you know?

Lately, I've just been really melancholy. I kind of hate that word, and certainly don't like it when it's referring to me.

How about, instead of writing a bunch of things that will sound good and get nice comments, I'll just be honest about life. Is that okay?

I'm not satisfied with how i'm living. I don't spend enough time with Jesus. I am not seeking him with all that I am. I'm looking to others to fulfill me. I spend too much time on my computer. I feel like I suck at life. I know the truth. I need to make some changes. That scares me. I have lots of hopes and dreams that truly deep down I don't think will ever happen. That scares me. And thinking that they might really happen scares me, too.

I know the truth, and I know what I need and for that I am grateful. I must ask for courage and wisdom. And seek the one who knows me best.

Thanks for reading.

Also, if you ever want to totally make my day… send me a hand-written letter.
My dear kindred spirit, Annah Beth sent me one today and I love her ever so much for the gesture.

Today is good.
Today I will stand as a witness to one of the most beautiful things God made.
Today the beloved brother of mine, becomes a beloved husband to a beloved friend, who becomes a beloved sister! :)
Today the name of the Lord will be lifted high.
Today will be lovely, no matter what the weather may be.
Today Satan will not be happy.
He will try to ruin the day. God is bigger, better, and wins.
Today Jesus will be glorified by the obedience and faithfulness of his people.
Today I will see so many people from so many places. weird.
Today I will pray, trust, and hope.
Today a commitment will be made that will never be broken.

Today is good.
