My personal motivation to you
I haven't posted in awhile (I plan on getting back into it) because I've been very busy as my Senior year is ending. Today I wanted to share something small with you about my mom.
My relationship with my mom has never been this close in my life. I didn't use to give her the respect she deserves, we'd fight and yell back and forth, and I use to just plainly ignore her or avoid having a relationship with her altogether. At the beginning of my senior year that all changed. When God became more of a priority in my life, my relationships started to get better. I made it a point in my heart to make my relationships better with my friends, but then realized I needed to do the same with my parents.
Since the fall of last year, I don't think I've fought once with my mom. I can't remember the last time raising my voice at her or vice versa. The "I don't care" attitude that I use to carry around is gone. God has mended my relationship with my mom, and we have had some really deep conversations since then. I love my mom; I thank God for her when I remember to. She's really deserving of a thank you, a hug, and a Texas Roadhouse gift card today!
In honor of Mother's Day, I wanted to share a link on my blog. I started a guys Bible study at my house about two months ago, and it has been fantastic. Every Tuesday we get together and talk about struggles in life and how our relationship with God is. We pray for each other and things that are going on in our lives. We've been trying to focus on the topic of leadership, but we talk so much about other things we don't always get to it. Anyways, the first night we had a Bible study, I asked my mom to share her testimony with the group of guys. I recorded it so I could one day share it with others. I hope you enjoy. God bless!
BTW: It's a little noisy in the background because people were eating, but it is well worth listening to.

Hi, I am Michael Jaymes. I am only 18, but I've decided to start to write. I feel a burden on my heart that I have much to say, so why not share it? I want to be heard and I want to touch the lives of others. What is a better way than through the internet? I have made my life motto, "I just want to be a blessing." It's time for me to live it out.
