Winter Retreat 2016

The retreat was AWESOME! The second night during the prayer, I felt freedom from school and my faith grew as I was crying out His name and seeking Him. As I was praising God with the rest of the youth group, I was so deeply touched when others were also raising their hands up high in the air praising God for the first time I was weeping because of the joy and comfort that I was experiencing. I know for sure that my faith grew through this retreat and the fire inside me is burning brighter and brighter :)

Christmas Performance

Christmas Performance

Christmas has always been my favorite holiday, but dance has always been something I would avoid at all cost. However, I chose to do the Christmas performance because I was doing it for God. I wanted to show my Lord and Savior. Jesus Christ, how grateful I am for His birth and His sacrifice. When I was doing the performance, I felt indescribable joy, and I knew I was serving my purpose of life and that I was made to worship Him.

Here is my performance video

My First Blog Post

Hey, this is Vera. I am now a sophomore in High School. As a high school student, I am probably just right above average, meaning I am smart enough to take those AP and honors classes but not smart enough to maintain a solid A. (My grades are around 87 - 93... see...). Well, as the result, I tried to look up tips that will help me improve my grades and study effectively. I am actually quite a researcher. I guess this is probably the only talent I have, haha. I found a website called CollegeInfoGeek, and it was incredibly helpful. The blogger really opened my eyes with his Impossible List, making me question myself if I am challenging myself every way possible. His website inspires me to write a blog of my own; it makes me realize that there are so many things out there that are waiting for me to do. I want to stand out, and I want to challenge myself so I can reach my fullest potential. These are the reasons why I am starting this blog today.
