    This may sound out there, but it would be great to talk about how to keep Christ on your front burner. I have been out of college for two years now, and work as a youth director, you may say “Oh she works in a church, she has it all together, and she keeps Christ and her faith on her front burner.” Well you would be wrong. I struggle with opening my bible everyday, I struggle digging deep in the word. For some reason even though I work in a church, church gets pushed to the back burner. So it would be great to discuss how hard it is, and things to do to keep Him a priority. Don’t get me wrong He is a priority, but life happens and at the end of the day I realize Christ hasn’t made it into my LIFE. Which is weird because I am surrounded by Him in my job, but I’M ministring to others, and not myself. Does any of this make sense. I hope it did. :)

      Hey Janie!
      I totally understand what you are trying to say, because that happens to me too! So, I second your idea! :)

    • Talitha K October 2, 2013 at 3:01 pm

      Me three!

  • Lisa October 1, 2013 at 11:25 am

    I would love to hear how you girls handle life and babies with they guys on the road.

    • Hannah October 2, 2013 at 3:20 pm

      I totally understand what you’re saying! My dad’s a pastor so I understand what it’s like to always be helping others and sometimes forget to put God first.

  • Emily the Second October 1, 2013 at 11:44 am

    Heather, you are beautiful.

    I have no idea if this stuff has been covered before, but I would love to hear about what a church should look like. Not The Church as a whole, but rather individual communities of believers. How much and in what way we should be sharing with each other. What our relationships should look like. Things like that. How to truly ‘do’ community and fellowship. I personally struggle with this so much, and I know others who do as well. I just feel like I can’t/don’t know how to connect with others, and I long for that connection.

  • Amanda October 1, 2013 at 11:49 am

    I would love for you to talk about how to get out of thinking so much about the future. I struggle with worrying and just have fear of what is going to happen. I am one to always try to be in control and take control. Every time I pray and give it over to Jesus I always seem to go back and pick it right back up again. It’s a constant battle and tug of war of fighting my flesh and the spirit. So it would be awesome to know your perspective or point of view on this and how do I get myself to just stop thinking and to trust Him. Thanks :)

  • Grace October 1, 2013 at 12:07 pm

    I’m a freshmen in college and am struggling with a lot of probably typical new college kids problems. I’m really homesick, I’m finding it hard to find a good group of friends and to find a place where I fit in and also I’m stuck watching my friends at public universities fall away from their faith and into the party scene. I was always told that college is where you’re going to make most of your lasting relationships but I’m really struggling with finding that community that I’ve been wanting for as long as I can remember. It’d be great if you could do a blog on the struggles of your college career and how/if you came to overcome them. Thanks.

    • Megan October 1, 2013 at 4:45 pm

      I’m a freshmen in college too! I fell almost exactly the way you do. Yeah, a video blog would be really cool about this!

      • Francine October 5, 2013 at 10:59 am

        Same here, I’d really love to see a video blog on that!

  • Natalie October 1, 2013 at 12:13 pm

    So exciting!!!

  • Hosanna October 1, 2013 at 12:37 pm

    I think that Lisa’s idea would be cool! Also you mentioned how you and Jeff met… I heard from mutulple places that you said no the first time he asked you. Why did you say yes the second time? Was the first time you or God speaking? If it was God than why do you think you said yes the second time? Sorry but as a teenager girl I think that this would be fun!

  • Casey October 1, 2013 at 12:55 pm

    My proposed topic… what advice do you have for a girl who dreams of being a mom someday? What do you wish you knew before you became a mom? Etc. etc. that kind of thing. I know this is a topic you could probably talk forever on… so maybe top 3-5 things?

  • Monica October 1, 2013 at 1:18 pm

    I would love to hear how you and Jeff met because I just love hearing stories like that :) and also how you handle being a busy mom while your husband is on the road. I believe in you heather! You’re going to do an amazing job and inspire us all even more than you already have :)

  • Joy Hartl October 1, 2013 at 1:19 pm

    I came to the realization today that Jesus is not My First Love or My Only Love, and I desperately want him to be. But I have no idea how. I ready my bible and pray and seek community but I don’t feel close to him. Could you help me pursue Christ as my First and Only love?

    • Shay October 1, 2013 at 2:46 pm

      Agreed, I think that would be a wonderful topic. In addition, maybe touch upon how we allow the Holy Spirit to change us and grow us while not falling into a state of complacency, but still knowing that God loves us where we are.

    • Mariya October 2, 2013 at 8:19 pm

      I feel the same way… that would be a great topic

  • RC October 1, 2013 at 1:29 pm

    What should you do when you can feel yourself falling away from God but can’t/won’t do anything about it?

  • aprilmspiller October 1, 2013 at 1:36 pm

    I’m not sure if you’ve talked about this or not, but I would love to hear your opinion on faithfulness. I struggle with feeling like I constantly fail God. I know who He is, I know that he sent Jesus to die and rise again for us, and I know that He loves us unconditionally. But I constantly feel like I don’t show my love for Him enough.

    • janajo48 October 1, 2013 at 2:18 pm

      Definitely would love to hear how you wives handle your hubbies being on the road while raising babies and keeping a healthy marriage. My husband is a police officer and works nights and has to go away for training often. We have an 11 month old son, so some advice to wives/moms would be great!

  • Leah October 1, 2013 at 2:17 pm

    Your hair looks great!

  • Michelle October 1, 2013 at 2:27 pm

    If you could do a blog on the pressures you faced in college and how you dealt with them…for instance, partying, especially drinking is a like what EVERYONE does on campuses anymore and not even just school but the people I work with are always wanting me to go out and drink with them on weekends….so maybe a blog on drinking? :)

  • Cindy October 1, 2013 at 2:46 pm

    Hey Heather ! You look awesome , as always :) I would live to hear you talk about How To Accept Criticism or also How To Deal with Bullying .I have been suffering with this two things too much and I would love to hear from you . Thank you , Heather !

  • A Worn Girl October 1, 2013 at 3:24 pm

    This is exciting! Well, let’s see, I would love if you got around to talking about dating and courtship. I know those are two very controversial subjects, and I’d love your opinion on them. Should you date, court….What are your thoughts?

  • Erin October 1, 2013 at 3:30 pm

    I would love to hear a video blog on emotional chastity and keeping your mind open to the possibility of God calling women to something else besides marriage. I find that it is a common idol and I would love to discuss how to make Jesus the man you need as opposed to waiting for that future husband, who may or may not come.

  • Janette Peggins October 1, 2013 at 4:28 pm

    You have done one post about this, but it came into my head while I was helping my sister clean her house. I’m going to try my hardest for this to make some sense but I’m really tired and typing this on my phone. Like you said in this video you probably checked your hair like five times. Do you have any suggests or verses on what you look like? To make a bit more sense, I was in a musical a few months ago and I had to have my hair and makeup done. My brother didn’t recognize me when he picked me up from rehearsal. The next night was the first show and someone who goes to my church didn’t recognize me either when I first got on stage. Basically how do you look nice but be recognizable? Or something like that. Word it however you want.

  • Lily October 1, 2013 at 5:37 pm

    How do we keep from compromising absolutes and giving in to social pressure? How do we know exactly what God thinks about each issue if it’s not directly addressed in the Bible?

    • A Worn Girl October 1, 2013 at 5:44 pm

      That’s a good question.

  • Cory October 1, 2013 at 9:38 pm

    A couple of ideas come to my mind for interesting topics! 1) How can we be seeking/know God’s will for our futures? I have to make some bigger decisions within the next two years about career choices (grad school or no, if so, where and what), and also possibly relationship decisions (continue dating, get married, ??). 2) Going off of that, how do you know when it’s the right time to get married? and 3) What is the best way to help the relationship between your boyfriend and parents to be a good one? Thanks!

  • Hannah October 1, 2013 at 10:05 pm

    I know this sounds strange…. but I feel like sexual abuse would be something blog about. I’m sorry if this is a little too serious than you had intended but I know I can’t be the only one who’s been molested. By three different people and I’m only seventeen. A blog would really help. Thanks!!

  • kellylynsiren October 1, 2013 at 11:53 pm

    I thought this before you mentioned your insecurities about being filmed, but:

    1. You’re so pretty.
    2. Your voice is pretty and I like it.
    3. You’re beautiful (inside–> out)


    • Talitha K October 2, 2013 at 3:00 pm

      I really agree! The first thing that popped into my head when I saw you was: “Wow, she’s pretty!” :)

      • purelilly October 2, 2013 at 8:22 pm

        Yeah I agree too! Heather you are really pretty!

  • Angie L October 2, 2013 at 11:21 am


    I would like to know how you teach your young children about God and Jesus. I have two boys ages two and three and would love to have some ideas to help.

    Thanks for all you do!

  • Sarah October 2, 2013 at 1:47 pm

    This is great!
    You look beautiful Heather, and I hope you won’t feel as nervous for the upcoming vlogs.
    I would love to hear about you taking care of your family and your typical day :)
    God bless!

  • jennaintheworld October 2, 2013 at 5:02 pm

    I would love to see a video post about what how you live in purity for Christ in the day-to-day! Thank you, Heather! I will be praying for Kelly. :)

  • christical October 2, 2013 at 10:52 pm

    I think it would be interesting to do open letters. Something a little like the “It Gets Better” thing, but for an issue like . . . a breakup? An eating disorder? Worrying about school?

    BTW, I think your hair looks amazing, and your voice doesn’t sound weird. :-)

    Write on!

  • Raquel October 3, 2013 at 5:10 pm

    Heather, I’d really like to hear your thoughts on the issue of homosexuality. Perhaps you can talk about what God says on this topic and what role it should play in our lives, as believers in Jesus. Perhaps you have a story to share in which someone you know or have encountered has or currently practises homosexuality. If so, how has this effected or influenced your personal belief about life and God? There is such a tremendous intimidation concerning this issue. Please don’t be afraid to share with us your perspective. Thank you!


    A girl like you

  • eeebiblebaptist October 3, 2013 at 6:43 pm

    Hi, sorry if you have talked about this…you may have, I can’t remember, but…I would love to hear about dealing with being a romantic, and longing to have a romantic relationship and be married. And often feeling moments of loneliness because of it (even though I’m only a junior in high school). I don’t know if that makes sense…sorry if it doesn’t, and sorry if it’s a repeat. It’s just something I’m dealing with.

    • eeebiblebaptist October 3, 2013 at 6:46 pm

      Also, this has nothing to do with what I said above…but this blog http://eeebiblebaptist.wordpress.com/ is one that I’m helping write…it’s an encouragement blog, mostly for my school…but this is a way to publicize…if any of you ever want any encouragement or anything, don’t hesitate to look it up…I’m sounding really proud right now…sorry…anyway, yeah… Thanks! :) Have a blessed evening, all of you! :) And check out the blog, please! :) Thanks again, and God bless.

  • A Girl Like Me Fan October 5, 2013 at 2:03 pm

    I’m So happy that you are doing video blogs! I don’t know if you are still accepting ideas, but I wonder if you would do one on having joy in life. I’m a christian, and i know that we won’t always have happiness, but i have a hard time staying encouraged and having joy in my life when things aren’t going so well.
    Anyways, I LOVE this blog and am SO thankful for it, and for all the time you put into it. Also, please don’t be nervous about doing the video blogs on here. I think your voice is really pleasant to listen to, and you always look gorgeous! Even when you were sick and tired on your love story blog, you looked great! I always love hearing what you have to say, and again, i am so excited for these video blogs!!

  • Margarita October 8, 2013 at 8:55 pm

    Please do a topic on how to help girls with their issues. Now that I have started school I realize that there are girls who have had sex, smoke, drug themselves and more. How do I help them? What does God want me to do with these girls? Why are we put into these situations?

  • Mary October 8, 2013 at 10:45 pm

    Hey Heather! How about a blog about tithing. Or, as a nanny this is area of interest, how you and Jeff manage discipline?
