My First Blog

I'm new at this blogging thing, so I apologize if it is kind of lame. My mom and dad have both started blogs this last year, and I've seen how they have influenced other people to look at the world in a different way. I have lots of ideas rattling around in my head that I really want to write down, but somehow I manage to keep putting it off. Instead of avoiding them, I'm going to blog my thoughts and ideas.

I suppose I should introduce myself now... My name is Molly Michele Metzger and I am fourteen years old. I am homeschooled and in 9th grade. My passion is dancing, and my lifelong dream came true in August. I was accepted to take pointe at the studio where I dance. I love to dance en pointe, but enjoy tap and lyrical just as much.
My life is dedicated to serving the one and only God. I was baptized on May 18th, 2002, in the bathrub of my parents' bathroom. On that day I promised God that I would never stray from the path that He has chosen for me. My sin was taken away, and, although I make many mistakes, they are wiped off my record by Jesus' cleansing blood.

My dad, Alan, works at General Electric, but is attempting to start his own Christian media company (click here for his blog and website). He is a loving father and husband and I look up to him in many ways.

My mom, Wendy, is a full time teacher for myself and my siblings, and has taught many wonderful classes on mothering at our church. (click here for her blog.) I am told that I become more like her everyday, and that makes me glow with pride, because I want to be just like her!

My brother, Noah, is eleven years old, and enjoys building lego sets and making movies. He's very sensitive to my feelings and is a great support to me when I'm going through something difficult.

Lexi is my bubbly eight year old sister who enjoys jazz dancing and talking! She is very energetic and uses it to cheer up everyone she meets. Although we are polar opposites, I enjoy being around her because she lifts my spirits.

My dog, Linus, is the funny one of the family. He entertains us all with his many quirks and habits, but especially by coming up to us and saying, "Mama!" He may be almost three-years-old, but he has not grown up at all!

I hope that by starting a blog, I can teach people who do not know Jesus what being a Christian is like. I do not want this to be a place where people com, read my blogs, and then walk away feeling depressed. Instead, I want it to be uplifting to those who are sad and comforting to those who are discouraged. I may be coming from a completely different worldview than you are, but this is my take on life and the world around me.

As you can see, I am not your average teen.


  1. Good for you, Molly...I'm proud of you! I'm very thankful that you are not the average teen! I love you!


  2. I'm so glad that God made you just the way you are, Molly. I'm so proud of what He is doing in your life. I love you!


  3. I'm looking forward to reading/seeing what God has put on your heart Molly! Isn't the journey ahead going to be exciting?
    I love you too...

  4. Nice one, Molly... Oh, yeah! There's one dot missing on the left... You should fix it.


  5. Despite the missing dot, we all love you:o) Congratulations on your first blog! I am looking forward to reading all that you have to say, and learning more about my wonderful cousins. I love you more than all the raindrops that are pattering on the window.


  6. Molly,
    I love this, it is such a great idea. I can't wait to read more.
