Meet Kailyn!!! 13 yr. old Guest Blogger Alert! Kailyn talks friendships!

Thursday, February 18, 2016

Week 2 of the Totally Tot Teenage Blogger takeover!! I am thrilled to introduce my readers to 13 year old Kailyn Smith! From the moment I met Kailyn, I knew that she was something special, she was 10 years old rocking bowties and delivering nothing short of style and “sass” in such a confident way. Kailyn radiates love, light, and fun! She’s often the life of the party with her bubbling personality and her “Youtube worthy” dance routines that I can never seem to get. Lol! Kailyn and I have discussed her writing for my blog for almost 6 months now; I quite frankly admired how Kailyn was so comfortable in her own skin and I wanted her to share her secrets here on TotallyTot, not only for my teenage readers, but for the adults as well.

Now, fast forward to 6 months later and Kailyn presented me her blog post on friends and relationships. All I can say is WOW!!!!!! Kailyn speaks of our relationship in her post but I have to admit she has taught me so much in my short time knowing her. Our heart to heart chats reminds me of how much I need God in my relationships. I sometimes find myself wanting to go to Kailyn’s school and teach these so called friends a lesson, (I’m kidding) but, I am reminded that God has the answers for all of our burning questions. So, our best chats always end in prayer and I thank God for these heartfelt conversations I am able to have with this young lady that will lead her right to HIM.  She’s a sensitive soul who genuinely loves everyone and I know that God created her with this huge heart for HIS kingdom. 

 Meet my honey dip:

Kailyn Smith

My name is Kailyn and I am 13 years old. I’m in 8th grade and I’m ready to take on high school (insert sigh emoji here). I am the oldest and it’s a very hard job being a big sister but I am proud to take on these responsibilities. I realize that I have to set a good example for my sister because I know she watches what I do and she wants to do what I do. Even though she can sometimes be a little mean, I love my little Keiran. 

I love to dance, sing, and most of all I love fashion. Fashion is something that makes me very happy and I love it with a strong passion. Being able to mix and match clothes and, as Tot calls it, playing dress up is really fun. I love to express myself through what I wear and I want people to see me and be encouraged to be confident with their style like me.

I’m going to talk about friendships and how God helped me with my friendships. All my life I had a lot of friends, I wasn’t popular but I was well known throughout the school. As I’m getting ready to graduate 8th grade and enter into High School I’m realizing all of the friends I thought I had were not really my friends. I dealt with a lot figuring out my true friends and the ones I had to let go. Please believe that I couldn’t do it without the help of God and the Wonderful Lady herself Tot!! 

Praying to God about friendships is one of the best decisions you can make because He really opens your eyes to who is really with you and who can also help you make God decisions when you are not in your right mind. 

It also good to have someone to talk to so you don’t hold your feelings in. Being able to talk with Tot about things and my friendships really helps me. I know that she was sent from God to be someone I can talk to and someone who can help me make better decisions and someone who prays for and with me. I even know that Tot has a mentor that she confides in and I believe that it is healthy and helpful to have someone that you can trust. Our conversations pretty much look like this: 

Now, I’m going to talk more about my past with friendships and how God really helped me. In the past I’ve had friends who bullied me, broken my heart, called me fake and some who said they didn’t want to be my friend any more.

I struggled with that a lot because I considered myself a good friend and I dealt with anger in myself for not being good enough. When my Mother took me and my sister to church, it was one of the best things to happen to me. After finding a relationship with God and figuring out who I was, my true self, I was able to open up to certain people about how I was feeling. Tot being one, has given me good advice and she helped me pray about a lot of situations in my life.

Now here’s some advice to the readers:

1.     When looking for friends pray about your relationships

2.     Have faith that God will send friends that will support you and bring joy in your life

3.     My final tip is to find someone to talk to about your feelings. Make sure you pray for the right mentor that can provide some advice, guidance, and prayer. 

That’s all I have to say and I hope you enjoyed my testimony. 

Kailyn out (Mic Drop)!!!!
