  1. I have to go through what Nicole in 4th grade. it was a devastating time. I just decided to become them until one of my worst days. God saw me crying in my room from bullying and my dad was deployed so he couldn’t help me. Then God came to me and said to me to shine to the world even if its hard. And I heard him and I decided to change my acting’s and show my school who I really I am without the bulling capturing me. my teachers saw me shine and I did too. So now I don’t let the bulling come to me and help other people shine.

    • DeAnna, I love hearing your story about how God met you were you were at with bullying. Nicole is the girl who we wrote the song Made To Shine for and it’s so awesome that you have overcome… like the words in the song “MORE than the stars in the night sky, YOU were made to shine.” Live it girl!! We’re rooting for you!

  2. I have been a Christian ever since I was a little kid, but I never knew what it really meant until one day in the 6th grade I lay on my bed just after church and thought about what God really means. I remember crying. It was a wonderful feeling. I was not sad or devastated. I was happy about all He had done for me in my life. Being a Christian isn’t just about religion. It is a relationship with the greatest person in the universe. It totally rocked my world that God wanted to know me and be my best friend for life.

    I need to post another story. My friend Samantha came to the Made To Shine program at Calvary Church with me. We have been friends for two years. She was kinda scared of God. One time at our lunch table she told Starla and I that every month her family had to go to the priest and tell him all their sins. She started to tell him and he said that she needed to come back later. They left the Catholic Church and she was scared away from God. Since Starla and I have been friends with her she has kind of shown interest in Christ. She knows that we make mistakes and we are forgiven. Sometimes she asks questions and we answer them. We don’t push her, but I think the conference really helped her to know who God is and that He wants to be her BFF. Thank you so much!

    • Olivia, It’s so cool that you were bold to bring your friends from school. Way to go! We are so excited that you were all there at the very first MADE TO SHINE! Keep shining for God! -elissa

BTW loved your new videos. Hey Becca nice job with the piano in the video, I would think it would be hard to sing and play an instrument at the same time:) And Elissa I love your eyes!!! Also I really liked both of your outfits at the concert and on the two videos!!! At the concert I bought the Sonflowerz CD and the “Alive In You CD. I listened to them they were faaaaaantaaaaastiiiiic!!! GOD BLESS YOU BOTH!!! Keep in touch Ellisa and Becca!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying
    your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any recommendations for newbie blog writers?
    I’d really appreciate it.

    • Thanks for stopping by! I guess I would recommend to keep reading great blogs and learn from how they write, but also keep your own style in writing! Write about what makes you come alive! It has the potential to encourage so many people.
