Sharing My Heart & Exploring the One Who Made It

I live in Mississippi, and recently graduated with a degree in psychology from Ole Miss. I’m looking forward to graduate school so I can get my master’s in counseling. My posts are for my own benefit as I use writing as an outlet to document and organize my thoughts through my journey of living and learning. I write a ton. I’ve been in a relationship with Jesus for over a decade, I've been dating Charles since 2011, and I've been a female all my life so my writing is coming from a Christian feminist who is in love. My writing is an account of what I’m learning about myself, love, mercy, and justice. You can find it all by clicking on "navi" at the top and then going to "My Word Flow." You’ll find plenty of my voice there, but if there’s more you’d like to talk about, just go to my ask blog--asklaurenbritt.tumblr.com. I'm no longer able to answer all the questions I receive, but I try my best. I've already answered over 1300 questions, and I've tagged most of them with general key words, so they're easy to search.

God is constantly editing my perspective—confronting my mindset and altering each one that isn’t representative of his heart. Jesus is steadily revealing His reality and relevancy, and only because of His faithful pursuit of my life am I gaining understanding of Him and the world. Seeing how he rearranges my values, convictions, and desires is evidence of how needy I am to grow and mature, and this realization alone makes me desperate for the grace and hope of Christ to lead every aspect of my life.

There’s nothing new here—it’s all recycled wisdom mixed with my love for writing and communicating. It is all for the glory of Christ that I write. It is all for the glory of Christ that I share. It’s all to know him more and make him known. It’s all to understand him more and make him more understood. As we seek him, we find him; as we find him, we know him; as we know him, we love him. It’s all for him.

What is it you have on your mind?

Leandra Medine has changed the way I look at fashion. She’s the brain and the fashion sense behind The Man Repeller. Being a “man-repeller” is a humorous perspective on serious fashion. She says, “Good fashion is about pleasing women, not men, so as it happens, the trends that we love, men hate. And that is fantastic!” Have you seen the ridiculous posts of women’s trends that guys hate that have circulated this website? The Man Repeller is the exact embodiment of the attitude we should have towards getting dressed everyday. She says, “Repelling isn’t about getting dressed and saying ‘How am I going to repel a man today?’ It’s about dressing for yourself and liking what you’re wearing.” 

These are some of my favorite photos of her style, but the point isn’t whether we like her style or whether we like each others’. Style is self-expression, and all that matters is that you feel confident and comfortable in what you like. Get dressed for yourself and don’t apologize for what you wear.

Today I’m wearing my BCBG harem pants, platform sneakers, and a cropped, collared polka-dot button-down. I don’t know what anyone else thinks about it, but I feel like it’s me, and I’m proud of that.
