About

Hello there! I’m Elle, a 14-year-old girl that loves Jesus with everything and travels full-time to share the Gospel. Here’s a few fun facts about me:

  • I am homeschooled and in my junior year of high school.
  • I enjoy learning languages and interpreting for people, and am working on my second (which I am conversational in) and third (which I am just beginning in) languages.
  • I have flown small aircraft five times and look forward to getting my pilot’s license.
  • I like reading a whole bunch, mostly biographies of missionaries and inspiring Christians from persecuted countries.
  • I sing and play ukulele and guitar (I’ve been playing the former for over three years and am getting started on the guitar).
  • And I’ll probably think of something to add to this as soon as I publish it.

Thanks a bunch for visiting Elle’s Everyday, a site where I talk about various things the Lord has laid on my heart to share, as well as occasional mission updates. (Check out theΒ Missions TimelineΒ for more info about what we do and where we do it!)

    Hello! I don’t know if you remember me, but this is Mikayla!

    It’s awesome and inspiring that you’ve got this blog. Keep shining the light of God!

    (Also, I feel you on the capo thing AND the grammar thing!)

    1. Hi Mikayla! I feel sooo weird, but I don’t remember… But my mom does, so that helps πŸ˜‰

      And aww thanks for your encouragement! I’d really like to check out your blog, so I’ll probably do that a little later today.

      And that’s so cool! Do you play guitar?

        OH, I’M SO SORRY FOR NOT RESPONDING. I do play guitar! I haven’t restarted my old blog from Blogger on here, but I’ve had this account for awhile. Thanks for checking it out though! God bless!

  2. I read your “Why Jesus?” and could not comment there, so I figured I would write my comment here.

    He is certainly everything! In life and in death. And, certainly, no one, however evil, seemingly power, or cruel they may be has any power to affect His love. This is what captivated (read enthralled) me. Hell? I certainly believe there is hell, always have, but I think it is sometimes understood wrong. I could never love Him for fear of hell (does that even make sense? “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear has to do with punishment.”) I love Him because He loved me; because I knew His love.

    I had to know His love; He died for me and He is risen! Nothing can separate me from His love. And, because I know His love, I fear nothing – not even ISIS, since you mentioned them. Actually, I spent a long time running from Him because I feared torture and death… HE IS GOOD!

    I wish everyone knew that and loved Him. Including the members of ISIS and Kim Jong-un.

    1. Amen! We definitely shouldn’t love Him out of fear – I probably phrased that wrong πŸ™‚

      I honestly haven’t met many Christians that want to love ISIS and King Jong-Un and the like, but I so want to see them saved. Thank you for mentioning that πŸ™‚

      1. It confuses me. If people did not think about ISIS or Kim Jong-un enough to fear them, then I might be able to understand. But, if you fear them and are tempted to hate them, are they not then your enemies for whom you are commanded to pray and whom you are told to love?

        1. True, true. Love is missing in so many Christians. It’s also ironic that God is love, and for some reason we think we can go without loving others. Thanks again for commenting! It’s great to discuss with like-minded believers πŸ™‚

          1. You’re welcome. It is a blessing to discuss things with like-minded believers. I just think that it seems self-contradictory to say “Love is missing in so many Christians.” We are not yet perfected, but it does say, in various different words throughout 1st John, things like “Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.” And, well, knowing God IS eternal life, is salvation. To be a Christian – to not know God – does that even make sense?

            1. Yup. I kind of said that knowingly, in that a lot of “Christians” don’t actually have a relationship with Jesus. I’m not called to judge their salvation – that’s Jesus’ job and His only – but I do know that many good Christian people aren’t living lives for Christ and are wrapped in religion (see my post Ripping the Veil Off).

              1. Another thing is that a lot of people in America try to make other Christians feel uncomfortable living, talking, and thinking like Christians. Some people try to tell others, like, “How dare you love them!” or, “They didn’t hurt YOU! You have no right not hating them.” (Of course, they don’t say it quite like that, most of the time.) This results, though, in Christians, who would really rather live according to the will of God, talking and thinking that they think in ways that are not in accordance with the new creations that they actually are in Christ Jesus – acting like what they are not and do not want to be. It seems there is a conspiracy afoot to try to make Christians act like the world and the world to act moral.

                1. Yup, that’s how the enemy works. He wants to steal, kill, and destroy, and he whispers lies into believers’ ears. Not that we should focus on him, but we should for sure be aware.
