I will be a Father to you, and you will be sons and daughters to Me, says the Lord Almighty.
- 2 Corinthians 6:18


   Welcome to Sons and Daughters! Glad you stopped by. Let me introduce myself.

  First off, my name is Abigail. I'm a teenager, world changer, sister, daughter, and friend. A writer and a reader. Music enthusiast but sports...not so much. Born and {mostly} raised a Georgia girl with a little bit of northern pride thrown in there. Compassion International sponsor, blogger, and advocate.

  I love Jesus. I love my family, my friends, and my church. I love children, here where I live and halfway across the world.

 There's a side of me that's a bit dramatic...onstage, of course! {and maybe offstage too a little bit, but shh... No one knows that.}

 If you're around me for any length of time, you'll probably hear me say God is good all the time, and all the time God is good. I believe wholly in that statement. You will also probably hear that I think there is importance in living in the now and resting in the peace of His presence. He is the source of my strength.

 Christ is my everything when I'm empty and broken. He has filled me with an indescribable love that I pray will always astound and overwhelm me. Sons and Daughters isn't about me. It's an outpour of His unending grace. I never thought I'd start a blog. I remember telling a friend "not many people would read the words of a teenage girl". But every time I say no, never, or I don't think; I imagine God looking down with a little laugh and countering, "Oh Abigail, my child, just you wait..."

 The name "sons and daughters" comes from 2nd Corinthians 6:18, a verse God gave me on a pretty special day. 
"I will be a Father to you, and you will be sons and daughters to me, says the Lord Almighty."

 So Sons and Daughters is about Christ. It's about my walk with Him and how He is stripping away my dirtiness each and every day. Sons and Daughters is about how God is molding me to be more like Him. It's about children in poverty. It's meant to be a voice for the voiceless. God has burdened me for the children of the world and has called each of us to show them the love of their Father.

 It's my prayer that this blog looks less like mine and more like His. I pray my life looks much less like mine and more like His. If He can shine through all the cracked, messy pieces of my life, if He can change the world of one person like me to step out and be the change this world needs to see; He can do anything. I hope that these words of mine {that aren't really mine but His} will encourage you and move you to join me in showing His sons and daughters the mighty love of the King.
