Madisen is so excited to be teaming up with Rise Up Wear on designing a collection for Being: Me! To kick off the launch, Being: Me and Rise Up Wear have released the official Being: Me Shirt, NOW AVAILABLE!

Being: Me was created by Madisen Hill to bring young women together and remind them of the importance of being who God created you to be. Be kind to every person you meet. Be brave in your endeavors and let nothing hold you back. Be proud to be His and a daughter of Christ. And most importantly, be you, so when people ask why, you can simply say, “I’m just Being: Me.” The official Being: Me shirt represents what the brand stands for in one simple verse, Psalm 139:14.

Being: Kind

“In a world where you can be anything, be kind.” 

- Unknown

Being: Brave

“Our fate lies within us. You only have to be brave enough to see it.”

– Merida

Being: His

“She knew who she was in Christ and she dared to dream big.”

– Unknown

Being: Me

“Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.”

– Coco Chanel
     I often imagine a world where everyone smiles to each other on the street, maybe even saying a friendly hello. When we see someone struggling or hurting, we offer to help them, rather than passing them by. When we see someone happy and full of joy, we celebrate with them, rather than trying to tear them back down. Kindness is something that our world lacks greatly. I encourage all of you to spread love and kindness everywhere you go. Build each other up with confidence and compassion. Overcome evil with good. Be supportive, not resentful.
“Always leave people better than you found them.” I’ve made that a mission in my own life. Change has to start somewhere, why not have it start with us? “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”

-Ephesians 4:32

Being: Kind

    I often imagine a world where everyone smiles to each other on the street, maybe even saying a friendly hello. When we see someone struggling or hurting, we offer to help them, rather than passing them by. When we see someone happy and full of joy, we celebrate with them, rather than trying to tear them back down. Kindness is something that our world lacks greatly. I encourage all of you to spread love and kindness everywhere you go. Build each other up with confidence and compassion. Overcome evil with good. Be supportive, not resentful.

“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”

-Ephesians 4:32

    In order to be ourselves and follow the path God has laid out for us, we have to be brave and bold in our choices. We have to understand people will not always agree with us, but we cannot change who we are to accommodate for those differences. When times get tough and it seems like you are alone in this battle, be courageous. Be strong. Be brave in all that you do. God is always with you.

    “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

-Joshua 1:9

    Every day, we have an opportunity to be a light. We can show love, compassion, and forgiveness to our friends, or even strangers. When we make the choice to put God at the center of our life, anything can happen. Of course, we will still have trials to work through but we will start to see those trials not as problems in our life, but as possibilities to grow stronger and show others that God will not put anything in your path that you cannot handle. Being a daughter of Christ is the greatest blessing. Why not share it?

    “She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.”

-Proverbs 31:25

    Growing up, you are always told to just “be yourself”, but that isn’t as easy as it sounds. We are all human and we are, unfortunately, easily influenced by our peer’s choices and opinions. But what if we tried changed that? What if we made it our goal to encourage our friends to come together and embrace who they are individually, rather than branding ourselves into groups and cliques? In the end, we all know who we are. We know what we like and don’t like, what we hope to be when we grow up, and who we aspire to be like. It’s time for us to come together and embrace who God created us to be.

    “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful; I know that full well.” 

-Psalm 139:14
