Update with Amber

Hey readers!! It’s been a while since I last posted. Sorry for those that have been waiting for new posts, I have just been so busy with various things and haven’t been able to make time to blog. I'm working on it, so thank you for your patience, messages and support. I appreciate it!

This year is filled with so much greatness! I have a few weddings to attend and the first one up is my bestfriend/sister's wedding, which is taking place this week!!!!!!!  It has been an absolute pleasure serving her and her husband to be, in their plans towards their wedding day. The bridal shower was so wonderful. It was filled with so much laughter, fun and great Godly advice. I learnt A LOT from that evening, a lot of things mate! I’m SUPER SUPER excited; I don’t even know how to really put it in words, but ahhhh, I’m so pleased for them both! Counting down the days!

Now to give you a brief update on what’s been going on with me…the last month and a bit I've been involved with planning events, fellowship with my irons and more. I have also been doing a few wardrobe styling projects, alongside some hair styling too.

Other than my love for Jesus/the Word, my family and styling I really do enjoy working with young people. Since the start of this year I have been involved in a discipleship course called The Walk, which is run by an organisation called Pathway whom I work for and in. I’m one of the mentors for the young people we have on board, and about two weeks ago we had the graduation ceremony for all the students that completed the course. It was AMAZING! God so met with us and met with hearts that day, I will not forgot that ceremony. I left that graduation even more inspired in sharing Jesus with others and also more encouraged in getting His word engraved in my heart. 

If you are a believer and have never been involved with the course I would so encourage you to get involved. I did all the levels on the course and today I’m a mentor to others. If you are not a believer and would like to come and see what it’s all about, COME!!!! Check here to see the video for more info.

I really believe it is important for young people to have support and Godly people around. Not everyone has that but with organisations such as Pathway it is possible to have that. To have an environment of Love, acceptance, truth, answers to life’s questions and people that know the way to God. I so needed this when I first came to Christ, but nevertheless I'm here today; discipled and still being discipled. It is so important to be taught and to learn. Seek for knowledge and understanding. Enquire, learn & GROW. 

Last month I went to watch a great movie by Writeway music...for the second time! I don't normally watch movies twice unless I REALLY like it and this one iLike!

Update on my Hair

I finally did it people... I relaxed my hair after 8 looong months. I didn't take many photos while having my hair out with all the regrowth but managed to find a few to show you, just how lovely it really was; thick and long too. Going to miss it, but now looking forward to doing things with my hair, now it's relaxed again!

I was recently tweeting about my hair, and the decision I made to not wear human hair weave again [may do synthetic one day, but we shall see]. I was watching a documentary on YouTube that Jamela did years ago, about the origin of weave. I had never watched it before and my sister showed me the programme. Even though I have worn weave many many times before, I had never actually focused on the fact it is/was human hair. I never wanted to think about it in depth because I didn't think I would like what I would hear,which was so true as I was cringing through the programme! Now that this has been brought to my attention, I'm not on it! 

The bible tells me that a woman's hair is her glory and I refuse to have someone else's glory on my head. Our hair can be traced back to us through our DNA and from watching that one documentary, I have seen and heard the truth on this one for myself and made the decision to kick it out. Please watch it if you haven't before..VERY interesting and enlightening! [Click here for the video link]. I'm now going to have to look after my own hair even more so, as I've been used to having weave in the past, so this is going to be a new experience for me on ideas & styles to do. I shall really aim to blog that process.

My hair after being relaxed: HealthyAfroHair

I'm so thankful and totally praising God for the growth He has given me in my hair! 
I prayed for my hair to grow healthy after cutting it into a bob back in 2009 and it has done! 
He is faithful. Do your part and acknowledge Him in ALL your ways!

There is one Youtube channel HealthyAfroHair by Julie Oli which has been most helpful to me. Check her out! Really encouraging to see her own growth also. If your going to be spending moneyyyy on hair, at least let it be your very own. You are worth it and what you put in you will get out. Be patient yet consistent and you shall see great results and that doesn't just apply to hair either. 

I've learnt so many valuable lessons, since the last time I posted, and so I know I have only touched on the surface of a few things in this one, so if you do have questions or wish for me to elaborate further on anything I have said, please do let me know.

Thanks for reading. Have a great week and be prepared for the sun to shine again Londoners.
