No More Identity Crisis for Madi Grace!

Ahh, I’m so relieved. Allow me to explain.

Ever since Madi Grace existed, it always had an identity crisis. Nobody knew what would be shoved down their throat next: writing snippets or undefeated Christianity.

I just couldn’t part with my passion for sharing God’s Word in a unique way.

… Just like I couldn’t part with sharing my life’s passion: writing.

It was really frustrating. People who followed for the messages from God’s Word were confused as all get out at the writing update posts. And then people who followed for writing posts were unfollowing at all the message posts (that or my tendency to offend people left and right, without trying and without fail).

But no more! The focus and purpose of Madi Grace has changed, and things should be a lot less back-and-forth confusing.

MADI GRACE IS NOW A LIFESTYLE BLOG, WITH A NEW TAGLINE OF LIFE UNDEFEATED.

If you know me, you should know that I really like kicking butt. The devil’s butt, life’s butt, butt in general. It should come as no surprise that Madi Grace is now about living an undefeated life.

You won’t believe how annoying it is for me to read about people exalting their failures and imperfections. Lamesauce. Those things don’t define us. We can take authority over them.

Madi Grace is anything but spineless, I can assure you.

And because my personal life (my personal life meaning anything aside from my main priority, my doll business) is about writing right now, you’re sure to see a ton of writing posts! When I become an author, it will then be my author website.

The idea of conforming to what the world would’ve preferred, and ultimately what the devil wanted—to stop posting about the Fire burning in my heart—made me want to barf (in their faces, preferably). A passion for ministry burning inside of you is hard to quench. I believe God has given me messages He wants teens like me to hear. I can’t back down from that.

But if I say I’ll never mention the Lord
    or speak in His Name,
His Word burns in my heart like a fire.
    It’s like a fire in my bones!
I am worn out trying to hold it in!
    I can’t do it!

Jeremiah 20:9

^ Just about brought tears to my eyes.

So coming 2018, I’m proudly introducing the

MADI GRACE YOUTUBE CHANNEL.

Yeah. YEAHHH. Somebody give me a fist bump. 👊

Even if you’re not a Christian, you might find the Madi Grace YouTube channel enjoyable. Maybe you’ll enjoy laughing at me. Who knows?

The launch date for the channel will be sometime in early 2018, after the rush of the Christmas season (big entrepreneur things going on for my doll site) and final preparations for my book are over (I start writing Warfare Book I on January 1st and am really behind on my research, otherwise I’d have launched the channel by now… I just have too much stuff going on).

The Madi Grace YouTube channel will feature videos of me sharing stuff like you’ve seen on this blog; like the How to Kick the Devil’s Butt in Your Everyday Life series, Finding Your God-given Purpose, What to Do When You Need Confidence, etc.

 That frees up Madi Grace to rise to its full potential while giving me another avenue to minister; the YouTube channel. Of course, I’d never dream of completely extracting God from my blog (it’ll be a cold day in hell where the devil’s singing Frosty the Snowman before that happens); the only reason anyone is able to life an undefeated life is because of Jesus and what He gave us. Madi Grace the blog just won’t be where I post ministerial Madi-messages, while the MG YouTube channel will.

IF YOU HAVE TIME, I’D LOVE IT IF YOU UPDATED MY BRAND-NEW BUTTON!

I mean, nobody’s forcing you, but I always update people’s buttons when they ask so hopefully they’ll do the same for me. XD

I THINK THAT’S ALL FOR THIS POST! THANKS FOR READING AND COMING TO MADI GRACE TODAY.

I love and am praying for you. ☺️ What do you think about the new changes?

    Ooh, I’m so happy that you’ve figured out everything for Madi Grace, Madi!

And woo hoo about a YouTube channel! I could never dream of doing that (I HATE MY VOICE ON VIDEO AGHAHGHAG). Congrats!! <3

    *shrugs* I can see how that would be more organized, even if then it’s half a million things to run. (If I had a blog for each separate subject that I wanted to blog about, I’d have like, ten. 😳)
    And more writing stuff is coming up? Yay!

    • Madi November 30, 2017 at 10:11 am - Reply

      Yeah, that was my dad’s main worry, that I’d have too many things to run to put 100% of my best into it. DWOD is now my priority since I’m turning it into kind of like a business and income, with Madi Grace and writing couple together as a hobby, and the YouTube channel will have a video once or twice a month. *shrugs*

      Awww, yay! I’m so glad you like my writing stuff! I get worried people hate it, because, you know, snippet-shoving and my general annoyingness 😂😂

    Go Madi!!!!! Seriously, at some point, if you can, we need to sprint together on MWC, just like old times! I HORRIBLY failed Nanowrimo, but meh. Whatever. 😛
    Also, I am on the path to converting to Judaism. I finally figured out that I saw Jesus differently, that I didn’t understand Christianity, and that I wanted to follow in my great-grandmother’s footsteps and devote my life to Judaism. Judaism makes sense to me, and I am happy with my life right now. I couldn’t have done it without you, though! You introduced me to God in the first place. And even though your tagline has changed, I will always consider you Madison, Devil Butt-Kicker. ❤️❤️❤️

    • Madi December 5, 2017 at 9:26 pm - Reply

      AHH YES. I’d love to sprint again! Heh, whatever. XD

      Woah, that’s awesome! Are you going to be a Messianic Jew? (That’s a Jew who still does the Jewish traditions such as Hannukah but also believes Jesus died and rose again to make a way to Heaven) Messianic Jews are EPIC EPIC EPIC. Awww, that means so much! Always praying for you, Blue. ❤️❤️❤️

      • Blue December 9, 2017 at 11:32 am - Reply

        When are you free? I can sprint anytime between 7 AM and 5 PM, and then 9 PM to 11 PM. Except on weekends and I most likely won’t be sprinting much during Hanukkah, and I probably won’t be able to sprint at all due to a trip where I won’t have service after Christmas.
        No, most likely I will be a Reform Jew or a Reconstructionist Jew. Like I said, I don’t see Jesus the same way I do, and while I do believe he was a great teacher and a great Jew, he wasn’t the Messiah, at least not my messiah.

        • Madi December 9, 2017 at 3:13 pm - Reply

          I don’t have as much time to sprint as I used to, but usually late afternoons. Wanna schedule a time?

          Ahh, okay! That’s super neat.

              I think 3:00 might be a little early (I finish school around that time XD), what about 5:00? What day is best for you?
