Chic Style: Mina

 Hello Everyone,
    I have been talking about style features for a while and I am pleased to announce Church Girl Chic's first style feature Mina. 

" I'd describe my style as old school glamour mixed with a bit of modern moxie. It is always my endeavor to conduct myself like a lady in style, conversation and demeanor"

 "I draw inspiration from so many different places. It could be someone I see on the street, in a magazine or one of my siblings. However, I'm obsessed with all things vintage so most of my style inspiration is drawn directly from the fierce mistresses of the silver screen. I watch all sorts of old movies and television shows from "How to Marry a Millionaire" and "Stormy Weather" to 'Dick Van Dyke'. Women like Lena Horne, Dorothy Dandridge, Lauren Bacall and Betty Grable along with Liz Taylor and Marilyn Monroe are so fascinating to watch and their wardrobes were simply stunning. Sometimes I even watch with the t.v. muted so I can study the style of what I'm watching and drink it in."
"Modesty is actually one of the reasons I've always been so attracted to old school glamour. I loved that these women could be perceived as beautiful even when they had no skin exposed. In my opinion, modesty should come from within. Modesty shows those around us that we are so comfortable in our own skin that we care enough to cover it and trust that our true beauty will shine through"

 "I'd like to add that style isn't what you wear that's new or current. Style should be a reflection of who you are and contain unique elements that are undeniably you. Your style is your greeting and your signature: the first thing others see when they encounter you, and the last thing they see when you leave. What does your style say about you? You should always be satisfied with your answer :)"

Isn't Mina's style lovely?  If you want more of her wonderful looks you can check her out on

Don't Find Yourself Being Someone Else's Footstool

How do you feel when you are hated, lied on, mistreated and abused? Do you feel Defeated? Sad? Do you want to give up? Most people do. Sometimes it seems very hard to love our enemies, the same exact people that treated us unfairly, deceived and lied on us. However, when you have the love of Christ in your heart, loving your enemies seems a lot easier said and done! I am reminded of two scriptures: 

 "But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you," Matthew 5:44 ESV

 “But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. To one who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from one who takes away your cloak do not withhold your tunic either. Give to everyone who begs from you, and from one who takes away your goods do nVot demand them back. And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them." Luke 6:27-36 ESV

It is tough to be hated, however, if you are a child of God it is even tougher to be the hater hating on the child of God. Imagine kneeling on all fours in front of the person you mistreated with their feet rested on the back of your neck. Elevating their legs aiding in their comfort while you are being humbled in such a position. Not a good image is it?  I am also reminded of Psalm 110:1

  “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.” Psalm 110:1 ESV
We as Christians have to realize that we must show love. We must not show hatred, envy, jealousy or mistreatment or you will not find yourself at the right hand of the Lord but as a footstool. Choose to love and not be the footstool under someone's feet. 

Much Love and God Bless

Life Hurts but God Heals! "Scars"


     When you think about scars, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Is it the scar you have on your knee from falling off of your bicycle as a child? Is it the scar on your heart from past abuse or pain? Scars come in many forms as a reminder of a lesson learned, or an experience that will most likely never be forgotten. I know for a fact that I can tell the story of  every scar that I have on my body. And I know many people who can do the same. My scars prove to me that God can heal all pain, and injury emotional or physical. My scars prove that life hurts but God heals. 
     I am reminded of Isiah 53:4-5:

"Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed." (NKJV).

     I think about my past when I cut myself with a razor cotinuosly because of emotional pain. I look down at the scars and continue to remind myself not of my past hurt but of God's healing virtue. It amazes me how wonderful God is. We must always remember that although we may experience the pain of life, if we remain focused on God, he will continue to heal, deliver and set free! 

Much love and God Bless
