This month Made For More turns one and we wanted to go back to the basics of who we are and why we started this blog!
Made For More was born when Lucy and Darby both felt that God wanted them to start a blog where young women could connect and encourage each other in their faiths and their lives. Since August 26th 2016, the team has grown and we’ve now had over 10 writers contribute or join the team, and have had the privilege of doing interviews with worship leaders, bloggers and magazine editors!
We believe that leading a faith-filled life doesn’t have to be boring or full of rules, but it is something that can completely change your life for the better as you enjoy everything that God has planned for you. Whether it’s beauty, lifestyle, or faith, God cares about it just as much as you do because He cares about you!
We believe that we were created for a purpose, that our life has meaning and that we were placed on earth for such a time as this. Our desire is to see Gods’ name lifted higher and to help other girls see how truly beautiful He is. We truly believe that we are made for more than the life and ideals that the world presents to us.
We want to see girls empowered by Christ and the knowledge that they are beautiful, valued and loved.
We believe that women should empower and lift each other up instead of tearing each other down as the world so often invites us too. I love that quote that says “a flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms.” which means that we are all fabulous and most beautiful when we just are ourselves! We believe that we should help each other to be our best selves and through the blog aim to remind each other that we are all important, valued and loved!
Made For More is only here because of all of our amazing volunteers that are passionate about getting across the message of Jesus in every day life! Being apart of this team is an incredible thing for all of us too as it helps us get connected with young women who encourage us to be our best selves! (We’d love you to be part of the team too! Head over to our ‘Get Involved‘ section to find out more!)
It’s crazy to think how far we’ve come from nearly a year ago, considering all of the team are in either full time employment or education! As of the end of July we have over 7000 views from nearly 2000 visitors across 40 countries!!! That’s mad!
So thank you to you all so much for your lovely comments, your likes and your endless support and we can’t wait to see what the next year will bring!
