My First Day as a Blogger... About Me

Hello, everyone! I guess since this is a new blog, and my first post, I should let you know a little about me.
 My name is Melissa, but everyone calls me Missy for the most part. I live in the great state of Georgia, have all my life, and I'm quite pleased about that. I'm in my mid twenties, but rather feel like I'm in my 70s because I'm quite old fashioned.
 My family is Independent Baptist, and I teach Sunday School in a Baptist church near my home. I'm KJV 1611 in Bible, and have the desire to be a Godly woman who serves the Lord with my whole life and heart. My personal standards and beliefs seem pretty strict to most people, but they are founded in God's Word and I don't believe I need to lower them because of that fact.
 I'm a writer. No surprise there, I'm sure. I've been writing since I was twelve years old, and though I haven't published yet, I have about 35 books piling up that are either completed or in the works that I hope to publish someday. You'll probably see a lot of posts about my own books and characters, as I work on creating their fictional lives and writing their tales.
 I'm also big into crocheting (expect to see a lot of that on my blog!). My Etsy shop is full of the works of my hands, mostly wedding items at this point.
 I'm the oldest of seven children, so I babysit and help with kids for the most part of my day. I love working with children and hope one day God gives me a good family of my own!
 Speaking of my own family, I'm still waiting on God to send the right young man along, but thankful to have this time of being single to serve Him wholly with my life (not that I will stop after marriage!) I've been using this time to learn as many skills and traits and homemaking talents as possible, and using those talents to fill my hope chest (which kind of overflowed years ago into my closet and under my bed) so when I get married, I will have done my best to learn to be a good wife and mother!
I absolutely love the color purple, antiques, books, yarn, and glitter, and my room is full of all of those (quite a combination, I assure you).

 I think that's all for now, but I'll be back later to add some more. I hope you enjoy this blog, and that it is a blessing to you!
