Your Story Matters

December 18, 2015


Here we are at another December, another Christmas, and another ending. Girls, I am the worst at change. If my mind is set on something we are planning to have for dinner, and then that plan changes, well, it takes me a bit to process the change. My husband has had to really learn this about me the past year because change is a REAL struggle for me, so I am there with you in processing what’s been happening with AGLM. A Girl Like Me has been through a lot of change even since the end of 2014, with Kelly leaving, more writers joining, Heather leaving, and then Kelsey and Steph, Ashton joining… it’s a LOT to process! And we get that! So thank you SO much for being patient and so gracious with us through it all.

I can honestly tell you that as we trust God and His lead through the change, whatever it is, does turn out for our good, and many times, WAY better than we could ever imagine. We are so excited about what’s to come in 2016 and hope you are too!

So, here we stand with you, Nina, Chelsea, Ashton and myself (Allison). We are with you and FOR you. We are so excited to get to know you all better, get in the trenches with you, and walk along side of you through this crazy life!

We have already been preparing for 2016, carefully writing, praying, and dreaming where A Girl Like Me is going, and we hope all of you are going to stick with us and even more so, dive in deep with us!

Starting January 6, 2016, we will be back and ready to share our stories with you. The good, the bad and the ugly. Our desire is for you to really know us and trust us, and we realize that in order for you to trust us, we need to let you into the depths of who we really are, a girl like YOU. Just like Heather, Kelly, and Kelsey did, we really want to give ourselves to you because this is what it really means to share life and be in community with you.

We are all excited and nervous, and very expectant of what God is going to do through this series we are calling, “Your Story Matters”.

And we are even going a step further with this… we want to hear YOUR story because we really do believe that your story matters! So just like Aubrey shared a post with us recently, we want to give more of you a chance to do so as well.

Here are the guidelines:

  • Share YOUR story with us. Keep it simple, on target, and real.
  • Do NOT exceed 1000 words.
  • Give us a title, a photo of just you, where you’re from, how old you are, and what school you go to if you’re in school.
  • Send it to us by January 1. agirlikemee@gmail.com
  • Be aware that we may edit your post.

We will continue with our normal Wednesday post schedule from the AGLM team, and if we choose to use your post, we will post it on a Friday.

I cannot wait to read your posts and get to know you all in a deeper way than just what we see on social media! And as always, we love to hear from you.

I hope you all have a very merry Christmas, and we will “see” you January 6, 2016!
