i’m so glad you found me! ugh so, so glad. I’m Lauren, known to most as Babe, La, Lala, Ren. Really, i’ll answer to anything. I’m 23 years old and run on typos, awkward moments and whole lot of second chances. Amen? i suffer from an aversion to capital letters and tomatoes (just in case you ever send me a sandwich) and i am equal parts girl and black coffee.
Hemmed Project was born from too much free time and my need for a place to put my energy. Before I knew it I had real live followers L O L. Clearly I tricked y’all into thinking I was cool. Honestly, I’m just a little blonde girl who was gifted grace and a camera with a passion for people and a passion for those people to know Jesus.
Why Hemmed Blog?
I love the idea of being known. Psalm 139 paints the most precious picture of how deeply and completely we are known by God and even still how deeply and completely loved we are by God.
“Lord, You have searched me and known me. You know when I sit down and when I stand up; You understand my thoughts from far away. You observe my travels and my rest; You are aware of all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue, You Lord, know it completely. You have hemmed me in.” Psalm 139: 1-5
“For it was You who created my inward parts; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will praise You for I have been remarkably and wonderfully made. My bones were not hidden from You when I was made in secret, when I was formed in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw me when I was formless; all my days were written in Your book and planned before a single one of them began.” Psalm 139:13-16
It is sweet and so powerful to know that even in our wretchedness the God of Creation is crazy about us, even before our days began He planned ahead for us, and not just a little but, but tediously and intricately He scheduled our existence.
And THAT is something worth celebrating.
My prayer is that you would leave here feeling more loved and encouraged than when you came!
