    NO!!!!! AGLM has been such a big part of my life I will miss new posts every Wednesday! to everything there is a season and I will have to let this season go. Thank you for the four years you gave me, they mean a lot to me. I’m looking forward to the final series. Best of luck to the three of you I’ll be praying for you! God Bless!

    oh my. I did freak out when I realized what you were gonna say.
    These 4 years have been so amazing, I really have felt close to you, even from so far away! Did I mention I live in Brazil? This amazing community reached me when I was a 16 year old who had just started listening to Tenth Avenue North. I remember being so happy to follow a blog with women who knew what it felt like to be a christian girl, and have learned so much! A Girl Like me was with me at the start of my youth ministry, and also at the end of it when I moved away.. and with me during new seasons, dry seasons, and especially the ones where I felt so lonely.. God has always used you women to speak to my heart, and recently to my 17 year old sister. She just started reading your posts because I accidentally left it open on our laptop, and just burst into tears when she started reading. I don’t even know how to thank you! I so hope to get to meet one of you, I feel so close to each women who has been here.! I’ll definitley be praying for each of you!

    Sad that this blog is ending! I think it would be neat though if you all kept the AGLM Instagram. I’ve been following the blog for the past 3.5 years and through it, have received so much encouragement and wisdom. That’s not to say I haven’t been frustrated at times or disappointed, but God has used you all for His good in my life.
    Hope to see Nina Oct. 8!

    Sweet Heather. Sweet Chelsea. Sweet Nina.
    I am sad to see the end of the blog–it’s been a very big part of my life. After the first week of December, I will miss reading a very encouraging and challenging post every single Wednesday. Like dearly.
    I can’t believe I’m not crying. But I guess I’m just at peace with this change cause I know you guys still love me (all of us!) and you’re not falling off the edge of the earth! It’s *very* comforting to know you’ll still all be there, even if it’s not every Wednesday.
    I love each of you so very much. You have all been very gracious, bold, loving, uplifting voices in the last almost 3 years of my life–very spiritually and emotionally eventful…or …tempestuous years btw.
    No, none of you are perfect, and you let us know with great honesty. That meant–means– a lot to someone who is not perfect and has trouble admitting she’s not. 😉 Your examples have taught me much.
    I won’t lie–I have been frustrated or somewhat annoyed at times, but we’re family here. And when the blog goes, that doesn’t mean we stop being family.
    Let’s just say, my frustration never was greater than my love for y’all.
    You’ve been there for me when I needed you. You’ve helped me through many seasons in life. I would not be the same person I am today without you guys. Because of this blog I’ve grown so much. I’m so thankful for all you’ve done for us.
    I just want to say
    Thank you. Thank you. THANK YOU!
    I’m so excited for all of our futures and where God will take each of you writers and each of us readers!
    Love you so much!! <3 xoxo

    Annie–my mom, my one younger sister, and I are planning on being at the Oct 7 one!!! We were hoping you’d be there too! :( We’ll miss you. <3 Have a blast and take some more amazing pictures!! :) <3

      Aw dang! Sad we missed you! But awesome you were able to go :))) I got some pretty funny video, but not too many photos because the venue was really strict about cameras :/

    Hey guys.
    wow. I totally freaked out and I’m SO BUMMED. Because I seriously started reading this blog like a few months ago and I’m so sad it’s ending :(
    But thank you! Thank you each for being such bright lights, and sharing your hearts with us.
    I’m really upset that this is all over (like sad upset not angry upset) and I’ll miss it a lot. I can only wish that I had become a part of this lovely community sooner.
    I’m super excited about the next chapters in your lives and this next and last series!
    Love ya’ll! <3

    I sat down to watch this video with a pint of ice cream having no idea what you were going to say. All of you ladies that have played parts in AGLM have greatly, greatly impacted my spiritual walk. I’ve always connected to each of your stories, your authenticity, your reverence, and your struggles, with every post. I have pointed several friends to your blog saying, These girls are the real deal and they’ve shown me what it means to love Jesus and live like Him.
    Nina, I missed two opportunities to talk to you last year at concerts and I was sad that I let that go, but I really look forward to hopefully meeting you ladies one day. <3
    I can't thank you enough, Heather, for having this vision early on and following through in obedience to reach out to us girls like you. (; I love you all so so so incredibly much.
