Young Ladies Christian Fellowship

If you haven't gone there recently, I think you'd really enjoy going over to Young Ladies Christian Fellowship. They have recently had quite a few good posts dealing with guy-girl friendships. Very insightful posts! I also recently read there a poem entitled, I Belong To Another by Gretchen Louise Glaser. It's a wonderful poem about saving herself for her future husband. Why don't you take a look!

    Hello Anna...

    Thanks...hopefully I'll get around to posting your poem on my blog soon!

    So you want to teach ballet too? That's great...have you had any experience yet? I've taught a bit...ran my own Christian ballet school when I was 16 and 17...and it's fun, especially with the little ones! And I saw you mentioned Ballet Mag. in several of your posts...do you get to see them perform often? Have you ever been to one of their Summer Intensives? I went to the one in 2003 and it was great...but I discovered that I didn't really want to be a professional dancer! But anyway...I'll quit talking about ballet!

    And since I AM posting a comment on this post (which happened to be the most recent one)...I agree that the recent posts at YLCF have been great! That's such a wonderful site as a whole...very encouraging.

    Well, thanks again for letting me use your poem...have a great day!

    Hi Jessica! Yes, I have seen Ballet Magnificat perform quite a few times, and have thoroughly enjoyed it each and every time! We just recently went to their production of Ruth, which was amazing! I haven't really taught yet. I helped my praise dance teacher with the younger girls a few years back. I am planning to teach at least 3 girls, whose parents have been asking me to for some time, as soon as I turn 16. So this fall, I'll be trying. I did direct a musical last year, which involved choreographing and teaching songs and actions, and that was a lot of fun!

    This summer I'm going to the Ballet Magnificat! summer intensive for the first time. I've wanted to ever since I started dancing! However, I don't think I'm cut out to be a professional dancer anyways, since I don't take classes every day, and didn't start when I was really little. I wouldn't want to dance with anyone besides Ballet Magnificat if I did though... other dance companys usually aren't very modest.

    It's been fun "talking" with you through comments!

    I have been to YLCF, and it's really good!

    It's been fun "talking" with you too! I hope that you enjoy the Intensive this summer...are you going for two weeks or four? Yes, I agree, if I ever did want to dance professionally, it probably would only be with Ballet Mag! Like you, even if I did want to be a professional ballerina, it probably wouldn't work out since I haven't had the chance to dance intensively (i.e. consistently take a lot of classes from a good teacher) at all...but the Lord knows what He's doing!

    And by the way, as soon as I post this comment, I'm going to post your poem on my blog, so it should be up there soon!

    I'll be going for two weeks. I don't think I'd be able to last for four!

    By the way, just wondering... how old are you?

    Well...this coming Wednesday (the 26th), I'll be turning 20. You're fifteen, right?

    well, happy early birthday! Yes, I'm 15 until July 5th.
