9.14.9

9.14.9
I have a tendency of complicating what could be ‘simple’ communication.

Please hang with me.

I want to start with a verse that always leaves me contemplating; non-fail, every time: Matthew 6:34

Says, “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

It’s a proven fact; girls can be needy. And since God decided to create me female, I can be needy too. My all-time, biggest would definitely be the need for STABILITY. We all have childhood hang-ups. Mine would be that everything seemed to always be changing, except for the things I felt needed to. For those that aren’t following, I have a need to know things. If I know it, I can figure it out. If I figure it out, I can understand it. If I understand it, I can eventually control it.

I know my ultimate spiritual goal is to have a peace with every unknown, by developing a matured trust in God. This was a broad question asked, and there are millions of ways I could have answered. I chose, however, to answer with this because I know it’s my biggest challenge. I purpose to have an unfailing trust in an always-faithful God.

Then follows Matthew 7:24 which says, “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” I believe God gives us opportunities, and He expects us to make use of them. I believe also that He’s a plan for us and doesn’t want us to miss it.

What's the meaning of life? Or what's the purpose of life?

n T This question was asked by someone on twitter. At first I was like, “How do I answer that?!” But truth is, every man has his own opinion. I don’t believe it’s because we’re meant to disagree, but that we’re called to understand and support that each person believes something different because they have a different calling. I believe the reason we’re alive is to learn what love is. We then, in a perfect world, would all accept Love, and then learn to share it.

Speaking of sharing, someone also asked when I would be making a new video update. Oddly enough, I thought about that exact thing just yesterday. If you guys would like, comment below with a cover song you’d like for me to learn and post for you. We’ll make our own little TRL on blogspot!! ;)

when can we expect a new Kaci Brown (Monroe) album?

Absolutely loved debut, anxiously awaiting a sophomore release!

First of all, Brittany, I love you for this!

I wish I could answer you with an exact date, but I can’t. I am no longer signed to a record company. I was dropped from Interscope and have been pursuing the industry from different angles, writing and whatnot. I have a new commercial agent, but am currently not tied down elsewhere. Without a record deal, it’s hard to tell when a record will come out. Like I said, it’s a challenge for me to be content with such a lack of control. It’s all in God’s timing. I’m always like, “God, am I not working hard enough?? I know faith without works is dead!” He always says to me, “Child, you’re not My slave. You’re My daughter. Enjoy being that, and do not worry.” I’ve decided, in the meantime, to start preparing a set to play out. I’m going to start in small venues, just to be on stage again. Accompanying me will be my sweet, giant of a rocker, Michael.

Michael Colmore Monroe is my new hubby. Not the high-school/boyfriend’s nickname kind, but the real deal. We got married August first of this year, and being married is incredible. I tried to find a reason to say no, and I just couldn’t. I think the biggest blessing in the world is to know you get to wake up to your best friend for the rest of your life. I think sometimes people get so afraid of being hurt by love that they guard themselves from it; which prevents them from ever experiencing all love has to offer. And that is one of the saddest realities of all.

what are some of the things you would like to study? and why?

I don’t know that I’d like to study it, but I need to study a cookbook or two. I’m always talking about how good the food is in the south, but I truly feel bad for taking so much pride in something I can’t cook. I’ve only been married a little over a month and I’ve embarrassed myself quite a few times already. One of the worst moments in the kitchen left a nice little scar on my right arm. Note to self: Toothpaste doesn’t really take the sting out of an oven burn. Note to you: If you try it, remember to wipe it off or cover it before you get in your car. There are still remnants of toothpaste on my console.

So after typing all you’ve read thus far, I found this:

do you plan on doing any grassroots type touring(ie coffee shops etc)? What are your musical goals at this point? Any good cooking tips now that you're married? ;)

FUNNY!!!! Right???? As we all see that those are answered, we’re moving on--

Are you a backstreet boys fan? And how do you feel about what kanye did to taylor last night?

Dude, I’ve been and always will be a bsb admirer. For different reasons, each member will have made an everlasting impression in my life, Kevin included. And as far as how I feel about Kanye, I say keep it classy, Kanye. Oh, and you just made everyone that never liked country music love Taylor Swift. After seeing behind the scenes, you have to wonder if those things are planned. Like, why was Taylor already backstage and not seated back in the audience? Ready to walk out, maybe? Who knows? Just remember, this IS the ENTERTAINMENT industry.

if you were stranded on a deserted island and could only bring 5 things, what would they be? And don't say a boat to get off the island, hahaha! - Bryan!

If I were stranded on an island and could only bring five things, what would I bring? Bryan, that’s a good question. I would definitely want to bring Missy, in hopes her bark would either scare off or annoy any unwanted visitors. I would want to bring Michael. Otherwise, I would starve. He’s the only one fast enough to catch the food, and definitely the only one that would know how to make it edible. I would bring an ample supply of fireworks. We might as well make it romantic while shooting flaming signals for help. ;) I would bring my LOVE SPELL body lotion from Victoria’s Secret. I’m sure we wouldn’t have the luxury of having showers and stocked shelves of Dove products on this deserted island, so LOVE SPELL would be my best friend. If size of the item didn’t matter, I’d bring an 8-person tent. I’d sneak in some sleeping bags and a can of OFF too. ;)

How do you feel about the economic crisis, the new Health Care bill, and are you a Democrat or a Republican ... there I go with the full on interview again haha.

I say this - - The American economy is built on credit. The word GREED comes to mind, when I think of what got us in to this mess. A lot of people got rich quickly and people wanted more.

Thankfully, there’s a Bible full of encouraging promises! Even in the midst of the “financial crisis” we are experiencing, we can remain hopeful and encouraged if we continue putting our trust in God.

“And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” – Phil 4:19

I know many Christians still believe the Health Care Bill covers abortion. Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.), who last month proposed an amendment to prevent mandatory abortion coverage in public or private plan, said in Time that President Obama either doesn’t understand the bill or “if he is aware of it, and he is making these statements, then he is misleading people.”

Now I am anti-many things, but that doesn’t mean that I can make them all illegal. If I am anti-anything, my integrity will keep me from doing it. I’ll do my best to be an example of what I believe. Do I agree that making abortion illegal is a good preventative? Yes, I do. However, I also believe it should be a choice- just like everything else. I believe we as Christians should do our job and be Christ-like-- Hating what God hates: the wrong. And loving what He loves: the people.

We can go back and forth with the pros and cons and debate Democrat/Republican views, but I’d rather just say in confidence that whatever ends up happening, regardless my personal stance, God is in control and will use this all for His glory.

Peace, Love and Joy my friend! Irie!!

will u be posting pictures from your wedding soon?

This is just for you! .............. >>>

what is your favorite movie?

I love movies. I tend to watch at least ½ a movie a night before I pass out. I have so many that I love, man. I couldn’t pick a favorite, so I decided “9” is my most-recent-favorite movie!

Come back for more soon!

Blessings until then,
