It’s hard to believe 2013 is coming to a close. Yet, I am grateful for the end of this year. The ending of a thing also symbolizes change. I don’t know about you, but I am looking forward to 2014. In many ways 2013 has been challenging, but along with the challenges came growth and fresh perspectives.
While I didn’t blog as much in 2013, I am grateful for the continued support I received, both on and off the Model Me Girl website. I would like to say thank you for a lovely 2013. To God be the glory!
So far, I’m liking Flowboard. It’s a fresh platform for publishing stories, portfolios and anything else you can think of.

Non-profit organization and online hub for young women, Milk & Honey are launching their first campaign & event. The ‘I Am Precious Campaign’ launches with a short film that aims to tackle some of the pressures a 21st century woman faces in today’s image conscious society—from low self-esteem, weight issues to self-acceptance.
Passionate about protecting moral values and bringing an awareness of self-value and worth to young women around the globe, The ‘I Am Precious Campaign’ relates to every woman on a personal journey of discovery. The heart behind the campaign is to reinforce that these are issues all women go through and send out a global reminder that despite these things, they are ‘Precious’ and worth far more than rubies…
The ‘I Am Precious Campaign’ short film was directed & written by the June Brothers, featuring ten women from all walks of life, finding their purpose and understanding who and what defines them.
On 22nd June 2013 Milk & Honey will host Precious Conference 2013 in support of the campaign. Held at St. Mary’s Church, Marylebone, the event is aimed at women ages 16-25, and will be a fun-filled day packed with sisterhood, love & empowerment!
With an array of amazing speakers, musicians, workshops & divine girly surprises, Precious Conference 2013 is an all day affair not to be missed! With the likes of Charlie Blythe (The A21 Campaign), JC Villafan, Guvna B (MOBO Award Winning Artist), Daughters of Davis, Philippa Hanna, Miriam Swaffield (Fusion UK) and other leading youth organizations, musicians and much more! Support the cause and our voice in reminding women just how Precious they are…

There’s no need to be green with envy. Instead, opt for the classy, luxurious green emerald to make a fashion statement. Pantone, LLC revealed the lush emerald as the 2013 Color of the Year.
Now a little color theory. Green is associated with nature: spring, regeneration, life and growth. We also think of newness, hope, youthfulness, and of course envy and sickness. Green is a status symbol and relates to wealth. Where there’s wealth, we think of elegance and luxury; and the emerald is a precious gemstone.
[pullquote align=”right”]“As it has throughout history, multifaceted Emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate. Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world. This powerful and universally appealing tone translates easily to both fashion and home interiors.” –Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®[/pullquote]
Be prepared to see emerald all over—fashion, beauty, home interiors. Emerald City anyone?
I absolutely love my mother, and am a self-proclaimed “mama’s girl.” I am so blessed to have strong, godly women in my life—starting with my own mom.
No cards, boxes of chocolates or flowers can compensate for all the hard work mothers do, or for all the love they give. I’m not just talking about natural mothers, either.
Motherhood isn’t just about whether you’ve given birth. Many people can fulfill the role of a mother when they give the love and attention mothers give. Motherhood is about nurturing, admonishing, guiding, loving, comforting, caring and gentleness.
[quote style=”1″]Isaiah 66:13 As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.”
1 Thess. 2:7 but we were gentle among you, like a mother caring for her little children. (NIV)[/quote]
Mother’s Day is a great time to reconcile mother-child relationships, to forgive past hurts, and move forward in the newness of life.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers, godmothers, grandmothers, sisters, fabulous aunties, and women who are “like a mother” in our lives.
