Hey Y'all!! My name is Gracie Leis and I am a freshman Meteorology major from The Woodlands, Texas! If you want to know a little more about me I guess I could tell you some of my favorite things: Queso (because how could you not like it?), spending time outside (whether I'm fishing or just sitting), llamas (because they are the cutest), and painting (although I'm not artistic whatsoever). I love my two French Bulldogs, Tiny and Chico, and my bird, Flower!
Why did you join the Pursuit Ministries?
I joined Pursuit because I wanted to be a part of a group of women who seek the same thing as me and wanted to share it with other, a close relationship with Christ. Through Pursuit I want to share the love of Jesus and all He has to offer with young girls. I want to be a light for Christ and I knew I could be an even stronger light with this group of girls who want the same.
What is your favorite bible verse and why?
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7 in a world with so many things so worry you and cause anxiety, this verse is here to remind us that if we give our worries and every situation to God, there is no need to be nervous or stressed or anxious. He gives us peace when we let Him take control.
Words of encouragement for High School/Middle School Girls:
You are enough. God created you with a special purpose and nothing and no one can take that away from you. No mater what you have done, God loves you with unconditional love and still has that purpose for you, you are His daughter and He will never give up on you. You are beautifully and wonderfully made by The Creator of a perfect universe. God knew what He was doing when He created you, trust in that!
