10 Things I Love About Fall
Ashtyn Gosnell

I've always hated the cold, I'm a summer baby so I think that's why (shoutout to the summer babies), but fall is just something different. It's a mix of both kind of weather, and since I live in Indiana, anything is expected, and I mean anything. Some days will be freezing cold and some days will be really hot. There is no pattern in this, it will be unexpected. But that's when fall comes in, its a whole new atmosphere. The orange/red leaves falling, pumpkins, sweater weather, boots, and many more things that make fall even more special. To be honest, I'm always excited to wear my new sweaters I get from Aeropostale! Also, this is the perfect weather for pictures, which we need those new posts for Instagram! I've captured some things that I love about fall. Enjoy and stay warm!

1. Sweater weather

Can I get a scream for sweater weather, please, because I absolutely love sweaters! Fall is perfect for you to just wear a sweater and go out, you will be warm and cozy. I also love the sales during Thanksgiving which have the best price and the cutest sweaters.

2. Fall accessories scarfs

A scarf is very very very important for fall. First, it completes your outfit, and second, most of my scarfs are fall colors for some reason. I feel scarfs are part of the fall season, you cannot wear it anywhere else. It keeps you warm and makes pictures cute.

3. Warm drinks like coffee

Fall is the season where I can drink my hot chocolate at peace. Because I get hate for drinking hot chocolate all year round. I love my hot chocolate! But fall is the season for all hot drinks from coffee to hot chocolate, you take that drink, get in a cozy blanket, and binge-watch your favorite show or movie.

4. Pumpkin patches

Pumpkin patches or just pumpkins is a must for fall. The color, orange basically represents fall, and pumpkins are the symbol. Pumpkin craving or drawing is an activity that everyone does, I used to do this as a kid all the time, but as I grow up, I never got the time for it. I really miss doing it, I feel like this would be a great activity to do with all your friends and have a get-together while carving pumpkins.

5. Cozy wrapped with blankets

As I've already said about how blankets are all we need to stay warm. Blankets are a part of fall to keep us warm and cozy in the cold. I'm that person that wraps herself in a blanket and walks around her house like that. My whole family laughs at me, it's a normal thing now.

6. Falling leaves

I've probably spoken a lot about the weather this whole article, but the weather is the main concept of fall. But the falling leaves just add a more change. It actually feels like a season is changing. The leaves are so beautiful in many different size and colors which represent fall.

7. Mother nature trees

Mother Nature is the best place in the world. As the leaves are falling the trees look stunning and more a bliss vibe to your pictures. To get the perfect fall pictures, you should also go for nature, trees and leaves. It's the best place for pictures that are worth posting on social media.

8. Place some boots

Another fall trend is boots, all types of boots will work for the season. I think I wrote more about clothing trends than anything else in this article, but that is what fall is about. Warmth and coldness which is fulfilled by clothes. I love boots, I used to only like the long boots, but now I love all lengths of boots, there so many of them.

9.  Cover your head with a beanies

Beanies are again a trend that recently became my favorite Because most girls don't like getting their hair messy so they try to be cool and don't wear a beanie, and the next day they get sick. I was like this too, But I now know why I'm always so cold and after wearing a beanie, I feel warm.

10.  Spooky Halloween

Halloween is probably the only national holiday that everyone loves to celebrate. You dress up, get candy, and get spooked. This is the only highlight of fall for me, even though it's been years since I went trick or treat, but it's fun seeing kids coming to my house. Yes, I'm the grandma that hands out candy.

I hope you enjoyed this small article about some things I love about fall. Comment down what your favorite thing about fall!

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.

What you did sounds dumb to me

An open letter to my father
The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

2833
Is God Reckless?


First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
