I thought it would only be proper to start this section of my Blog off with a small "thank you" and little tribute to the girl who is the reason that I started blogging in the first place. This is Yelena (@yelenabosovik on Twitter) she is a twenty-something Christian girl just like you and me. She is a law-student, fashion-forward, so intelligent and most importantly, she LOVES God. :) I mean how much cooler can you get?

I first stumbled upon her blog (which I have linked for you! Just click her picture above!) almost 6 months ago and read an article about her "Bible Study Tips" (which I actually use daily now!) her words were so well written that I was blown away! She truly soaks up every single word of the Bible when she reads it and she teaches you how to as well. You can tell her passion for what she does in every article she writes, and she has truly inspired me to do the same.

For so long now I have wanted to start a blog for young Christian women who are finding their way in life. Who haven't been married for 20 years and already had a house of kids. But for girls who are just starting out in life and are just trying to survive dating, work, school and everything else that comes with it. Most of all doing everything while loving God and putting Him first!

I thinkYelena is one of the only girls I have found online today writing about life from a twenty-something Christian gals point of view. I hope in the future to have her guest blog here and maybe even hop over to her site myself to do a guest blog (that would be awesome!) I think the most important thing both of us are trying to do is inspire young Christian women to follow God, live for him, and do it together!

If you want to check out the awesome Bible Study tips Yelena gives click on her picture above to check out the article and her site! Be sure to comment below and tell me what blogs you are loving right now too!

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
    but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised

Hey dear! Thank you so much for the lovely feature. I wish I could just reach across cyberspace to give you a great big hug. I'm so glad my blog has been an encouragement to you, because it's something so close to my heart.

I totally agree with you that there is not nearly enough content out there for Christian twenty-somethings. There are surprisingly quite a few Christian sites targeted towards teen girls and then a whole lot at mothers, but in between there really isn't anything. I mean there are lots of wonderful lifestyle sites for career, food, fitness, beauty and fashion, but other than personal blogs, there isn't a place where it's all about living a Godly life and talking about the serious stuff - the raw stuff that moves our hearts and challenges our minds. That's why lately I've been praying about turning Lovely Thoughts into a full magazine-type of site where any young woman can come for a few minutes to just BE, without judgments, expectations or rules. To dream, to be inspired and encouraged to live big lives, but above all to follow the Lord with all of their hearts, lives and minds.

Anyway, I'll stop blabbing about my dreams. I'm excited you decided to start a blog and can't wait to follow along! :)
