“Faith is no substitute for planning. There may be sometimes when we can’t plan, but we should never reject planning.” God is not a genie and we shouldn’t expect him to bless our prayers if we are not willing to put forth the effort. Don’t just talk — take action. Don’t just pray — prepare. I very much needed this today! Nehemiah 2:5-11

“The only day to live for God is today.” You’ll definitely want to read this last blog post, not because I wrote it, but because it’s mainly points and thoughts given by my dads New Years bible lesson. So many good reminders that I know I needed! 😄

It’s so easy to be inspired and creative in a new place full of variety, but it’s another thing when you’re around the same things every day and they become monotonous.
Sometimes creative scenes present themselves to you, and other times you have to go looking for them. Either way, it’s important to capture that creative scene.
When I first started taking pictures, I was self-conscious of people judging me taking pictures in public, afraid of being in the way or looking silly in an attempt to get that perfect angle. Truth is, I’ve never cared when I do it, I only regret when I don’t seize that opportunity.
And don’t just capture that scene, but appreciate the moment. Be original, and show others how things look through your lens.

    Great advice Hannah! I have always felt the same way when taking pictures for my blog in public. Especially when my friends start to complain about me taking too long! Keep taking great pictures.

    1. haha yes! There is definitely a balance of getting your creative shots and spending quality time with family/friends, but don’t miss your shot — literally! 😉
