so, you all have probably noticed the new blog name (yay!)! you're probably wondering what it means...so i thought i'd explain it a little ;)

well, i've been thinking about changing my blog name lately, because "singing for life" didn't really seem to define my life at the state that i'm right now. i absolutely adore singing, but i realized my blog really wasn't about singing, and i really didn't post videos of myself singing. so i decided i would change the name. i wanted to do something unique, and different, and i was thinking through a list of songs i enjoy listening to, and this one really popped out to me. "...she's not afraid". it really means more to me then just talking about not being afraid of little, unimportant things, but it made me think of it in a Christian way. as being a fearless Christian. that's the kind of person i want to be. bold. fearless. determined. nothing holding me back, and no one holding me down. being able to live my faith loudly. boldly, and determined. not being afraid of what circumstances there might be, but knowing i stood up for what was right, now matter what the results. that's the person that i long to be. and i know that i'm not exactly that person. i strongly desire to be that person, and i know that it is possible for me to be that person. and as i grow and strive to be that person, i want this blog to be a place for me to come to and put down my thoughts and how i'm becoming that person. a place to encourage me in becoming that person. and a place where i can encourage others to be that person as well. that's what i long for.
so this title means more to me now than what my last name meant. this name really has a meaning. she's not afraid. i'm not afraid. i am fearless. i am reckless. i am determined.
that's who i want to be, and that's who i want others to be and long to be.

"There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love."
