A short story!

Here is a short story I wrote:

Once upon a time there was a girl that lived on a farm in the country. She loved to dance, even though they didn't have the money to dance. She was an amazing dancer. Her name was Jennifer. On her farm she had daily chores, which included milking the cow, getting chicken eggs, cleaning the horses stalls and a lot more. Most of all she loved the Lord. One day as Jennifer was going to town, she saw a sign that said Ballet Tryouts inside. She decided to go in, even though she didn't even have a leotard or ballet shoes. Once she went inside, everyone stared at her like she was crazy. They then started the tryouts. The teacher said they had to do different things, like jete, passe and tondeu. Jennifer was better than all the other girls and did amazing. The girls were dumbfounded. After class, the teacher came up and said "What is your name?" "Jennifer". "Well, Jennifer", the teacher said, "Welcome to Royal Academy of the Arts" Jennifer couldn't believe that she had done well, but sadly, she told the teacher she couldn't afford lessons. "You don't have to. I want you take lessons for free" Jennifer thankfully accepted. Now, she is a professional dancer for the Royal Academy of the Arts, all because God had a plan for her.

Hey Everyone!

Wow. A lot of things have been going on this summer and school year. Let's start with July. July Mary and I went to Ballet Magnificat's! Summer Dance Intensive!!!!! It was amazing! We stayed in Jackson, MS in Belhaven College dorms. I learned so much about the Lord and dancing. August was my birthday!! It was amazing! I had a friend over and she spent the night and the next day we went to a local water park! We also started school! It is going pretty well! We are doing Alpha Omega's SOS (Switched on Schoolhouse). I love it! September is going great! Our youth group had a cool back to school swim party, and we also had a Girl's Night! Today we have a Cotillion class. I am really excited!

At our youth group everyone is chosen to share a devotion every week, and this coming week is mine!! I'm so nervous! I am doing it 3 of my favorite verses- Proverbs 3:5-6, Psalms 9:9 and Psalms 27:1. Pray for me! I will post how it goes!

I have to go!
