I was a little bit schocked when I saw this post since I would never say that You believe in God. Why? Honestly, I have no idea, maybe just because in my opinion the majority of American teenagers only thinks about stupid stuff like parties, expensive clothes and so on (I know, such a pathetic and stereotypical view.) But nevermind, after this post I respect You a lot, because not every person would be able to show its beliefs and priorities as far as religion is concerned.

I wish You, Karla, Happy Easter! Let Risen Lord will be in your heart!

Million kisses from Poland!

This is the first time I have ever commented even though I absolutely love your blog. Taking a little break from the fashion to show what's really important is awesome. Have a great Resurrection Sunday--or Easter, whatever you want to call it :)

What irony - utter materialism, followed by a religious message. I'm sure Jesus wants you to buy designer clothes and show them off to the world, eh?

Thank you for doing this. Nowadays people tend to think the Easterbunny resurrected from the death of eating too many chocolates. Jesus is the true meaning of Easter.

This is my first time commenting on your blog even though Im a huge fan. You have actually been one of my inspirations to start a blog which is still in the works but i hope you'll check out once its up and running. I love that you aren't afraid to wear your faith on your sleeve for the world to see and i hope that God blesses you and your fam on this blessed holiday. Happy Easter!

Happy Easter and God bless.

It's incredibly inspiring to see a such a talented blogger who is religious as well. i actually am back from 40 days of Lent !

Ah, so TRUE, darling. I love this.

Happy Easter, Karla! Hope yours is captivating!

Rebecca said...

Amen. This was really nice to see. :)

katarina said...

happy easter, karla, to you and your family.

just to comment those two comments - theres nothing wierd when religious person is interested in fashion, being religious doesnt mean that you cant like pretty things (i am roman chatolic, so i dont conect religion with modesty like protestants may do)

and easter is NOT fertility worship, it only carries csome pagan traditions and so does christmas, who cares, really, if you know the true meaning...

Happy Easter to you too! :) Hopefully this weekend will make us all think twice about issues of materialism and self-absorption. I knew you were a Christian and it is obvious that like the rest of us, you struggle with issues that all girls struggle with - insecurity and materialism. You know this: while Christ died for our sins, it doesn't give us the freedom to sin so that God's grace and forgiveness may abound even more. God gave you the gift of artistry! Use it to positively impact young people! :) God bless you, Karla!

Rachel said...

Happy Easter (almost)! I watched Passion of the Christ yesterday (on good friday), and I was shaking with tears. Jesus was so amazing to die on the cross for our sins with the nails in his hands and feet and the crown of thorns on his head.
God bless you, Karla.

EnoughDavids said...

Thanks for restoring my faith in the internet! Well done for proclaiming the message world wide. I'm sure bold moves like that will be rewarded! Happy Easter!

wilde said...

Thanks, Karla, for this post! I too am really grateful that Christ died so I can repent of my sins and return to live with Him again someday. I'm also grateful for His resurrection and for the knowledge that life is eternal, and the good things of this life will continue on forever.

About the comments on materialism: I agree that we should be careful about caring too much about clothing and temporary pleasures, but at the same time, those things are just a part of this life, and I think it's okay to enjoy them. I seriously don't think God is going to condemn you or anyone else for enjoying things like that. Every person just needs to find their personal balance between the spiritual and the material. Anyone who's pointing fingers and telling someone else to "repent" (or whatever you want to call it) should probably do some self-examination first. We all have weaknesses to overcome (whether it be materialism or something else - perhaps being too judgmental?), and our focus should be on overcoming those, not on telling others to change. I really enjoy your blog and think that you are so talented and cute. Thank you for having the character and courage to post about something that's super personal for you.

Love, April

Happy Easter Karla and your family, too. God Bless always. I'm very proud of you and such an inspirational, even though you're much younger than me. I wished we already had blogs when I grew up back then. lol. Enjoy your youth and don't forget our savior Jesus Christ. XOXO

Hannah said...

I'm not sure where I stand with religion and so I consider myself Agnostic, but I have to applaud you for posting this. I think it's great that you believe so strongly in something and that you're so proud of your religion.

happy easter!

come.josephine said...

So perfect. Thanks for reminding us of the One who never forgot us.
Have a fantastic Easter!!
On a side note:
I'm saddened and frustrated when people try and put God in a box. Sure, God doesn't wish for people to lose themselves in materialism, but there is nothing inherently wrong with fashion! God is the Creator of beauty, and blesses people with the ability to create and enjoy art within their life. Inspiration comes from Him, and I believe He delights whenever we get creative with design, just as He did when He designed us. As long as our passion is for Him and not for they money we place in fashion, there is no problem at all. It really makes the argument quite funny. Anyway...
God Bless!!

happy easter to you, karla.

blaqbird said...

Hope you have a wonderful Easter! Obviously some don't know the true character of God, and so they have false ideas about Him and what he has for us. Hopefully they get a true understanding (as I am in the process of doing) and get an opportunity to celebrate Easter for what it means (pagan or non-pagan traditions included). :-)

Happy Easter, Karla!

And, this is probably completely inappropriate considering the message of your post (and the comments about materialism), but...post pictures of your Easter dress/outfit! I can't wait to wear mine to church tomorrow morning. :)

Stephanie V. said...

Hey Karla, I have been watching your blog for awhile now, I discovered it on a visit to the teen vogue website, I fell in love instantly with your creativity and your love for fashion, which is mine as well! It is very elegant and very unique.. It is funny because i am also Salvadorian and also wish my legs for alot more leaner! haha idk if it is a Salvadorian girl thing! So since then i been watching you and how your style has evolved, its something totally yours! But seeing this post I felt lead to actually write to you for the first time! Seeing this is such an awesome reminder of the love that Christ showed for us and many of the people who love to be on total opposite ends with God, but i am happy to know that you have believed in him and are not ashamed...like many have said I pray for blessings for you and your family, and that you may rejoice at this time and forever more..you are a beautiful girl, and like scripture says.."looks are fleeting but the woman who fears the lord should be praised"!
God bless Karla!

=) there's no greater love than this, indeed. =)

and it doesn't matter that we celebrate the Risen Lord's resurrection on a formerly pagan holiday. we don't celebrate the paganistic fertility festival, we celebrate Jesus conquering death and sin. and that's what matters. =)

Have a very blessed Easter Karla, from over here in Singapore =)

Dami said...

Hey Happy Easter Karla

Just wanted to say that its so sad that non -believers have to be so mean to those who do belive in Christ. If you have horrible things to say keep it to yourself. Infact it sounds like those leaving nasty messages need some help. Everyone is entitled to thier beliefs and opinions, just be careful that what you say is not offensive, which some of the comments are. How would you like it if everyone here said that you were going to hell because you don't believe in God... luckily we are nice people and respect others views and opinions :)

Soz about the rant everyone, just had to lay a few things down lol.

Nehoos Karla your sense of fashion rocks, keep on serving your God and strutting your stuff!

Fashion-Maverick said...

Yes..that's the real meaning of Easter!!..

Happy Easter, Karla!!

We are told to memorialize the death not the resurrection. Read the bible. Obviously you believe everything your little bald priest man says.

Why don't you look it up.

Anonymous said...

Someone above said 'don't put god in a box', I think I'd be more inclined to do that if christians didn't put 'non believers' in a box too.

I'm happy you feel comfortable enough to post this, but it disappoints me that there is yet another place where I am made to feel left out, because I don't spend my time worshipping Christian style.

For the record- I think Jesus was a good guy, even though I don't believe in the 'supernatural' stuff.

Thank you for posting this!
I personally think religion is foolish and increasingly encouraging a false sense of belonging to those who 'believe'. However, I can appreciate a symbol of belief such as this image and what it represents. Please do not make 'non-believers' out to be something which they are not. For a lack of dedication to this 'greater power' to which you dedicate your time and attention does not make us bad people, simply those who do not need an excuse to spend time with their families on this lovely weekend.
Believe in the good of others, not the wishes of an imaginary figure.

Ana said...

"Please do not make "non-believers" something out to be which they are not." I am a believer and I really do not do that, but so many times I had "non-believers" say things like Katie did (btw, not trying to make her feel bad, it's just for an example)- saying we believe in an imaginary figure or that we need an excuse to spend time with our families. Having that happen so many times, it's getting hard not to put "non-believers" in a box of people who say they respect religions and yet they 2 minutes later they call religions stupid (btw, not saying that Katie did that or that all non-believers do it)or a waste of time or something similar. I don't know any religious person that ever said to a "non-believer" that their belief that God doesn't exist is stupid or a waste of time, all were really respectful of their choice. So please, try to do the same when in contact with people who believe.
And Karla, great post :) Happy Easter!

Wow.....love it. At first I thought it was a picture of a necklace then did a complete 380. It warmed a lot of hearts prompting many to leave a post. Every Easter I'm reminded of a sermon I heard ions ago comparing Easter to a new beginning. Forget New Year's resolutions. Easter is the time to reflect and set personal / spiritual goals. It truly symbolizes new beginnings. PS. I liked your comment - great words to live by.

ANA said: "I don't know any religious person that ever said to a "non-believer" that their belief that God doesn't exist is stupid or a waste of time, all were really respectful of their choice."

How about this comment from Erika "i laugh so hard at all the anonymous comments...so sad to know there are so many empty people out there". Charming, huh.

Imagine this. We (non believers) use all of that extra love and time on the people closest to us...time that believers spend on their religious beliefs. I'm not saying that makes you love your family/friends any less but how can that kind of love we express make us 'empty people'. Comments like that really make SOME religious people seem spiteful and small minded.

Wanderlusting said...

I have a lot more respect for you now Karla, not because you are a Christian, but that in these trying times it gets harder and harder to admit being one without people getting the wrong idea (you know, that all Christians are extremist judgemental freaks - which sadly is half true). Bless :)

Wanderlusting said...

Oh PS to all you HATEFUL anonymous commenters- I have tons of Aetheist friends - I never have put them down for their "non-beliefs" and they don't put me down for mine - respect for everyone, that's what I believe. Maybe you should think that too before you shoot your anonymous mouths off with hateful, derogatory comments. There is room for all types of people in this world - no need to hate on people for what they believe in.

OH and to those who think we love our friends and family less because of God - GROW UP! Love is unlimitless, neither God nor my family is getting the shaft here.

Truth is relative. Right and wrong are simply illusions created by environment and cloistered minds. Hey, to every man his own. But like begets like; good luck opening eyes with negativity people. Divine free will without freedom? Last time we let one truth outweigh another it was called genocide. We don't need your pesticides. Let my garden grow. You are loved infinitely, unconditionally, eternally. Keep on blooming, Karla!
