ha ha, it has been a looong time since I posted. It's called trips and business, and well, basically life.
But not more excuses, this blog is for myself, and I don't have time to beat around the bush!
While I was recently on my trip in GA for Teenpact, God convicted me of being myself. Sometimes (a lot of the time) I am a very big push over, and I don't think about myself, or even what God wants, I always think what would they think, or what would they do in this situation. So while over the last few weeks I have been trying to be myself, I realized that I am not always myself even online. Sometimes I try to copy other people's blog or FB posts. Sometimes I try to post according to what I think others will want to read. But this is not right. I need to post what I think God wants me to post. So this is it. This is the REAL me. Not fakes, no trying to imprese. If you don't like what you read, well then you need to take that up with God :)
I am Rebekah Jean Kimminau.
I am 16 (almost 17) years old.
I love my God with all my heart and have given my life to Him. With every choice I make I want to glorify Him. I want to serve Him in every possible way. I want to love Him with all my mind, soul, body, strength and heart. I want to follow His will in every possible way. I want to let other's see His love through my actions.
I fail at all of the above, many, many times an hour. But He still loves me. He still forgives me. He still wants me. And that is His amazing, unchanging love for me, that will be there for me till the day I die. Even when I fell like it's not.
I have a God-given passion for children. I just LOVE them. No matter the age. I want hold them, play with them, cuddle with them, love on them. I want to teach them, see them grow, help them love God too. I want them to enjoy life. I can not even begin to describe my feelings for children.
I love my family. My crazy wacky scary family. I will love them till the day I die. We have fun times, hard times, new times, and many other times. But we are a family through it all.
I love my friends. God has blessed me with more then I could have ever asked for, and a few that I call family. They all have special places in my heart.
I have moved 7 times, all from a state to a different state.
I have a very fun, crazy and at times silly extended family that I love soooo much.
I have my own photography business LeslieJoy Photography, and I love it. It keeps my busy, but it's another God-given passion, and I have a lot of fun with it.
I am loud, sometimes too loud. I could definitely exhibit more self-control in the area of my voice. Sometimes I screech so loud (normally when being teased by my family) that I make everyone close their ears.
I am horrible at spelling, and punctuation, and grammer, and foreign languages. So if I ever have any of that on here or any other place I write, that is why.
I love organization, I am a neat freak. I like to keep things in their places and everything pleasing to the eye.
I love to interior decorate. I love to arrange things.
I am a visual learner, and I have a photographic memory. Both of those contribute to my amazing sense of direction I have had my whole life.
I love all things girly, tea parties, dresses, skirts, pink, purple, dolls, pretend, old things, fashion, flowers, anything proper and pretty.
I have been out of the country 2 times, once to Ecuador for a family vacation, once to China for a trip with my two grandma's.
I hate bordem, and love to busy.
I love crowds. Even when you have people on all sides and it's hard to move. I just love it.
I am a total people person. I love to be around friends. I don't necessarily like the attention on myself, but I do like to know what is going on all the time with everyone.
I perform well under stress. In an emergency I love to take control and figure things out.
I am NOT a deep thinker, though I do think a lot (if that makes sense. :)
I love all things romance. Romance movies, chick-flicks and romantic novels.
I do not like almost any fantasy. I.e. StarWars, lord of the rings, Eragon, fantasy movies.
I love photos. I love taking them arranging them, printing them. I think they truly are art.
I have a very big but realistic imagination. I love to imagine things that might or could or maybe happen. My future, redo things in my past, etc. Part of this is my visual side. I also love to imagine redecoration. I can take a picture of a room in my head and rearrange and redecorate the entire thing in my memory.
My favorite chapter in the bible is Psalm 139.
I am writing a book, Moriah. More to come later on this.
I used to be obsessed with Vera Bradely. I now own about 15 pieces of it.
I am very opinionated about many thing, mainly Honda Odysseys, and baby gear.
I LOVE to people watch. I sit places and try to figure out as much about random people as I can.
I love to plan. Anything, events, trips shows. Whatever. I plan my whole life. Sometimes this back fires when God wants me to just trust Him.
I currently have no idea what I am going to do when I graduate, and I am just trusting God will show me in His own time. If you ask me what I am planning to do, that is the answer you will get.
My favorite movie I saw recently is Life as we know it.
My fav actress is Katharine Heigl, then come Julia Roberts, and Anne Hathaway, then Selena Gomez.
I have had MANY people tell me I am just like Jane from 27 dresses, and after watching that movie many times, I agree completely. She could be my twin in more then one way.
I could rant to you forever about abortion. So if you mention it, be prepared.
I love to talk. I am definitely a talker. Anyone could tel you that.
I also listen. I love to listen if I am in the right mood.
My favorite artists are Jonny Diaz, Laura Story, and J.J Heller. My favorite song though currently is One Pure and Holy Passion.
My love language is touch. So if I touch you too much, I apologize right now. I am a very touchy person. If I am ever in a bad mood and you want to cheer me, just give me a big bear hug. 99% of the time that will work very well.
I am a very emotional person. I have cried during too many movies to count. I cry for joy more then I cry for sadness.
The youngest baby I have ever held is one hour old.
I have always dreamed of someone throwing me a surprise party.
I want to sky dive when one of my best friends turns 18.
I am terrified of heights ^ha ha^
I am a big dreamer. I dream a lot.
I love being home schooled. I have always told my mother I would run away to an amish community if she tried to put me in school. I was not kidding.
I think I am one of the few modern americans that could survive being amish. Most people say I have no idea and that I couldn't. I want to go be amish for a week and prove them wrong.
I think have written plenty tonight and need to go to bed.
So there you go. That is the real me. None of that was written for or because of someone else. You get what you see. :)
