AGLM Introduces Allison!!

August 26, 2013

Hey there girls! As you may know from reading Kelly’s last post, she will be taking the rest of the year off for a much needed break. Kelly and I have always felt that if this blog became any less than a blessing to us, we would need to step aside and refocus and refresh until the Lord was able to bring it to that place in our hearts once again. I’m so happy for Kelly that she can take this time to be with her family and temper herself before the Lord and just enjoy being with Him.

That being said, Kelly’s hiatus has left a huge gap in our hearts as well as on the blog. For this reason, we’ve called in one of our dearest friends Allison Bentley to come and fill in for Kelly while she is away. We’ve known Allison as a friend and partner in ministry for several years now, and we love her more than words. She too has a passion for young women and a desire to speak real truth into your lives. I could really go on and on about how much we adore this girl, but instead, I’ll let her tell you a bit about herself. So AGLM’ers…….. meet Allison.

Hi!  I’m Allison!  Most days you will find me in a coffee
shop…talking with a friend or studying for one of my seminary
classes. After graduating a year ago from NC State, I am pursuing a
degree in Counseling from Southeastern Seminary and seeking to live a
life of surrender as I discover what God has for me.  I love talking
with people about Jesus and how He relates to every part of life.
Right now I am privileged to be on staff with Cru (Campus Crusade for
Christ) where I get paid to invest in college and high school girls
for the sake of the Gospel….it’s pretty much the best job! I am also
a part of a great church called the Summit that is all about Jesus and
engaging people in the mission. I am so passionate about getting to
know people! I am so excited that Heather and Kelly have given me this
opportunity to be a part of “A Girl Like Me”. It’s by far one of my
favorite blogs :)

    Aw, awesome! How old are you, Allison?
    I hope Kelly comes back soon; I didn’t ow it was going to be for the rest of the year… I understand though. Over a month ago, I took a step away from media to get closer to Jesus. It’s been a blessing.

    Y’all are about to be blown away by what Allison has to say! She has been one of the biggest blessings to me in the short while I have known her. Her passion is incredibly inspirational and she’s the perfect role model for teenage girls. She gives the best advice and will never give up on you. I love you Allison and I can’t wait to read your blog posts!
