Hi! I'm Emily and I'm a writer for Bloom!Magazine and I don't speak French, just so you know! I am a Christian homeschooler going into 10th grade. My interests include, walking barefoot, writing stories while drinking tea or coffee, Irish dancing, blogging and countless other things! I love socks and slippers and my favorite season is fall. I play the tin whistle, piano and have started learning the fiddle! I'm pretty bad right now but I hope to get better and be able to play a bunch of things! I'm really happy to be on the Bloom staff and having more things to write! Yay! =)

Hey Girls!

Hello my name is Grace! :) I really enjoy writing descriptive paragraphs and writing about things that are important to me such as purity, modesty, and what God is showing me in my life :)
I'm a girly girl who loves wearing skirts, and doing my hair and wearing jewelery. But I'm also a country girl that loves to throw on an old pair of jeans and go horseback riding! Oh ya, and I love black, high top Converse with frilly skirts :) I know, not the most popular style, but it's me and I like it haha :)
I'm involved in a youth group that I love and I long to live a set-apart life for my Savior!!
I'm so excited to be writing for Bloom! Magazine and I hope to get to know some of your girls better :)

Hello Everyone!

Hi guys! My name is Hannah and I'm a writer on the Bloom! Staff :)
Here is a little bit about me:
1. I love to write poetical things :)
2. I'm 12 years old (almost 13!)
3. I love love love photography!
4. I'm very thankful for who I am.
5. I love the Lord with all my heart and soul.

My favorite color is the color that glimmers with love, flows with beauty and dances with moonbeams. In other words, I haven't found it yet.
My favorite season is the season that brings cool streams from heaven that nourishes the pink and yellow beauties, followed by sunshiny radiance that smells of green earth and happiness, along with chilled noses and hot cider, and finally, sparkling crystal covered pines and toasty orange flames in a stone fireplace.
In other words, I don't have a favorite season. I love all of them!
I enjoy hanging out with neighborhood kids, being active, playing my guitar, teaching myself songs on the piano, painting with watercolors, daydreaming and expressing myself in my writing and photography. I am a follower of Christ and try to do His will every day of my life. I am so happy and honored to be part of Bloom! and I can't wait to get started!
You can find me at my main blog, my photography blog, and this writing blog!

Hello, lovelies!

Hey, gals!  I'm Hannah - a Bloom! Staff Photographer who is super-excited to be a part of this wonderful organization that lovely Kyann has started.

Goodness, that didn't define me in the least. Many of the staff members are photographers, and I think we're all pretty excited to be a part of the fabulous Bloom! Magazine.  As for more about myself-

I am a daughter, sister, dreamer, blogger, photographer, and Princess of Christ.  I'm thirteen years old and am home schooled by my wonderful momma, and I am so grateful for the time my parents invested in home-educating me as a Christian.  I live in Missouri with my parents and three younger siblings who make my day...daily.  I'm a lover of chocolate, sewing,flipflops, coffee (preferably a White-Chocolate mocha from Starbucks, or even better, a Cappuccino from Rome, Italy, which is, of course, very rare), reading, singing, music, computers..and, of course, blogging.

I take violin, dance Ballet and Tap at a fabulous dance studio, and attend an amazing co-op where I take classes such as drama, speech, science, writing, and the like. 

I have a passion for finding beauty in the mundane (and the not-so-mundane) and capturing it with my camera.  I recently bought a Canon Rebel T2i, and, let's just say I'm in love.  I continue to improve in my photography.  I'm certainly not the best, but if I look at the photos I was taking a year ago, even six months ago, I see quite the improvement.  I am looking forward to seeing where this talent of mine brings me, and am so glad to be able to take pictures as a Staff Member here.

 I wish my life to be glorifying, beautiful, and pleasing to the Lord, but so many times I fall short of this. Jesus accepts me as I am, though, and for that I am eternally grateful. If it is God's will, my wish is to one day be a wife, home-schooling mother, and professional photographer.

I'm so excited to get to know you all through this site, and through the magazine.  If you'd like to find out more about me, you're welcome to visit my main blog or my photography blog

Hello Everybody!

Hello dear readers and fellow authors! I'm Sally (though here on blogger please call me Cornet Crazie), I'm 14, and a photographer on the Bloom! staff.

Hmm. Well, I'll start with this. I've always thought that God must have put me here on Earth for a reason, and I have come to understand that that reason is to share my music. Can music make this world a better place? I don't know, but I'm going to try. As you can see from the picture I'm a trumpet player (as well as playing cornet, trombone, clarinet, piano, bass, percussion, mallet/vibe percussion and many more instruments soon to come!) and I often surprise people with my abilities after learning that I'm only 14. There's even more surprised when I give them the list of instruments and tell them I conduct and compose and arrange music as well! It's a beautiful gift God has given me, and my musical talent makes me feel truly blessed.

But enough of that. What else do I do? Well, there's that place that I'm 'forced' to go to every day for nine months a year, five days a week. But really? I don't mind school that much. I'm going to be heading into my freshman year in three days time, and I have to say, I'm excited! I obviously love my band classes but I enjoy French very much and I'm a total history junkie, especially when it comes to the World Wars and the Holocaust.

Other things I love?

Church, Pilgrim Lodge (my church summer camp.), friends who are like sisters/brothers, my camera, skiing, snow, puffy white clouds, good books, colored pencils, Owl City, deep quotes, blogs, field hockey, being vegetarian, laying in the grass, my family, cute little kids, writing, poetry, hot french fries, luna moths, softball, the smell of valve oil in the morning, plants, purple pens, chipmunks, my MacBook, drawing in chalk, weeping willows, snail mail, my iPod, other band geeks just like me, and the true beauty of Creation.

Hi, everyone! My name is Amy Hollis and I'm a photographer for Bloom! Magazine.

I'm also a Christian, daughter, sister, cousin, niece, and, I'm sure, plenty other things in the family department. As for my own self, I'm an avid reader, an addicted blogger, a nature-lover, and a preschool-fan! Also, a home-schooler. I'm just starting the eighth grade and I just moved to the mountains. Have you ever walked bare-foot in the dewy grass? I'm afraid I've missed such an experience until just this morning.

I'm so excited about this blog, my new friends, and Bloom! in general. I'm on Staff 2, so you won't see any of my photographs until October. Unless you check out my blog, amyhollistaylor.blogspot.com.

Hoping you have a blessed day,
Amy Hollis Taylor

Hey Everyone!

Hi everyone! My name is Allie and I'm a photographer for Bloom! Magazine! I'm so excited about this magazine and can't wait to see what everyone does!

I am a 14 year old photographer. I am a Christian and I love God with all my heart! In the fall, I will begin my freshman year of high school; I've been homeschooled all my life and love it! Playing piano is one of the things that keeps me busy. I am the second oldest of four children, I have one older sister, one younger brother, and one younger sister. I love being in a big family even though it's not that great all the time! In my spare time I enjoy taking pictures, editing them, and blogging them! You can find my work at allie photography. I want to share my pictures on Bloom! Magazine in hope of encouraging other girls her age.

I guess that's it about me! :)


Hello everyone!

Hello Everyone! My name is Emily, and I'm a staff writer for the Bloom! magazine. I am very very happy to be able to contribute to the magazine and especially to make lots of new friends.

I'm sixteen and I live in Southern England with my parents and little brother. I'm really lucky to have a fantastic Christian family and lots of great friends too. I'm generally a happy person and I enjoy doing lots of things, either active things like swimming or more relaxing things like reading and writing. I like travelling and have been to lots of different countries. I also am a bit of a history geek and I enjoy learning about really cool old things (told you I was a geek!). I'm fighting a daily battle against cancer which isn't exactly great, but I love knowing that God is walking on this journey with me.

I don't know about all of you, but I can't wait to see the first issue of the magazine! 



Hi! My name is Rachel, and I am a staff photographer, and occasional writer. I'm really excited about this magazine, and can't wait until the first issue comes out! A little bit about me... well, I live out in the middle of nowhere, near a little community that isn't even a town. The nearest city is about 40 miles away, but we shop in a city an hour and a half away. I have six siblings, age ranging from sixteen to two years old. Some of my hobbies are reading!, photography, blogging, outdoors (whenever I'm not sneezing my head off), gardening, writing letters, cake decorating, and a LOT more! My favorite singers are Tim Mcgraw, Martina Mcbride, and Craig Morgan, and anyone else who is a country singer! My favorite movies are the 2009 adaption of Emma, Sense and Sensibility, The Princess Diaries one, The Princess Diaries two, The sound of music, Avatar, and Legally Blonde. My favorite actor? Definitly Julie Andrews!

Hello There!

Hey girls! My name is Mary Catherine, and I'm a staff writer and occasional photographer for the Bloom! magazine. I am so excited about this magazine and the influence that it will have on all girls our age.
So here's a little bit about me!
First of all, I adore writing, obviously. I am totally looking forward to getting more experienced through being a magazine writer. I am interested in a lot of things, like photography, interior design, fashion design, horses, singing, and piano. I focus best when music is playing. I adore kittens but can't have one because my brother is allergic. :) I'm an organization freak and my closet is color coded. I have a library of over one hundred books and all of them have been read at least five times each. If pink was an addiction, I would be an addict. I have a pet albino rabbit who's name is Cloud. He was born on the Fourth of July. Don't give me any grief over the un-original name - I got him when I was seven and automatically computed white, fluffy, Cloud!
I like old movies and actors and my favorite place is Williamsburg, Virginia, the living museum. History is my favorite subject and I love bizzare facts about anything. Like did you happen to know that MGM owns the rights to the "Happy Birthday" song?
I became a Christian when I was five and was baptized when I was eleven. I love Christ with all of my heart and do everything that I do for Him. I hope you will be able to learn more about Him as I do with this magazine and that it will encourage you to learn more about Him.
Well, I suppose that's about it. I hope you will follow this blog and subscribe to the magazine. Come along with us on our spiritual journey!
--Mary Catherine
