On November 1st, 2013, Chrissy Joy- Life & Style Blog was launched. It was a blog that took months of preparation along with lots of prayer and trusting God.
My decision to start this blog was not done overnight. It wasn’t because I wanted to show the world my outfits, or to talk about the inspirations. It was a vision that was given to me by God, and was confirmed through friends, family, and even a dream.
I was very doubtful and fearful of starting it at first, and was worried that I would not be able to maintain it, or even worst no one would like it. Then it dawned on me that if God was the one who gave me the vision for this blog, and told me to go forward in starting it, then why would He let if fail?!…He wouldn’t!
As I look at this blog and its past post… I see a tool of inspiration. Not just an outfit inspiration, but a testimony that when you put your fears and worries aside, and place your trust in God, your life will be rewarded in so many ways.
During the past year of blogging I have learned so much. I’ve met and worked with many great people, and I’ve also had many sleepless nights due to being consumed in writing a post. I never knew that I could love doing something so much. I literally feel like this blog is my baby! 🙂 It warms my heart to see it growing, and I know that it will continue to make a mark on the world in the coming years.
Thank you all for following me on this journey! Make sure to fasten your seat belt and hang on tight, because we are kicking it into 4th gear this upcoming year. Let’s go! 🙂
