In the Beginning, I Created This Post.

Hey there! I am so glad you came here today! I’m Madison, better known as Madi; a thirteen-year-old professional blogger, YouTuber, minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and devil butt-kicker. Welcome to my blog; Madi Grace!

After blogging about my hobby of doll collecting for four years, I began to pursue my desire of starting a personal site as well. Then, after chewing on the idea for months, I presented it to my parents shortly after 2017. A few weeks later at the dinner table, I asked my dad, “When do you think I can start my blog?”

With the answer of “Oh, whenever you want,” I purchased the domain name and released my blog to the Web that very night of February 7th! Madi Grace is a unique nickname I made for myself from my first and middle names and is the root of my ministry name, Madi Grace Ministries. Madi Grace Ministries is a division of Power of God World Outreach, Inc.

My blog will basically document my life of being in the ministry with a few other random posts thrown in the midst such as my writing, photography, and artwork. That being said, my many hobbies include reading, writing, dancing, acting, singing, crafting, sewing, anything artsy and musical, gymnastics, photography, film production, graphic design, doll collecting, and talking. 😉 Ah, yes, and I get a kick out of kicking the devil’s butt (pun intended). I’ll also post articles on here about finding your purpose, discovering your identity, how to kick the devil’s butt in your life right now, and so much more!

My amazing blogging friend, Grace, interviewed me for the launch of Madi Grace. Click here to check it out! Reading Grace’s amazing blog, The Girl Upstairs, began to stir up the desire to create my own personal blog and Grace was so incredibly kind and amazing to offer to interview me for the launch! Thank you so very much, Grace! ❤️

Thank you to Revival Ministries International for the above photo of me

This blog is not just for Christians (or girls; I know my design is feminine, but boys, you’re welcome here, too!), but for anyone who would like to join me on my journey of kicking the devil’s butt, leading a thriving life, and inspiring others to do the same (as well as enjoy other fun posts)! Whoever you are, you’re welcome here!

I want to thank you for stopping by my new blog and I hope you enjoy your stay! Join the generation of devil butt-kickers by hitting follow / subscribe, then hit “like” and drop a comment below – I can’t wait to get to know you!

You ready to kick some devil butt?

    OKAY THIS IS AWESOME I’M SO EXCITED FOR YOU AHHH. You’ll have to tell us about Peru on here when you go (I think you mentioned that?? If you didn’t maybe my memory is just spazzing out lol)! Gah I’m so happy that you were able to start this new blog, Madi! <3 <3 I'm so glad we're blogging friends. (I'm pretty sure I already said that in a comment on your "bio" page, but it never hurts to say it more than once! XD)

            So it’s not just me! XD YAY. BRING THAT ? AROUND THE ? WITH YOU. Just felt like using emojis. ?

            Oh, and we’re forming ✏️ (KAY I NEED TO STOP NOW) cabins right now for April, so just making sure — you’re not doing April Camp NaNo? The other girls are Josie and Chloe. 🙂

            • Madi March 4, 2017 at 5:20 pm - Reply

              Nope! ? WILL DO. ?
              LOL! Emojis… XD Arg, I’ve been really thinking about that. Yeah, I don’t think I’m going to be able to do it… there wouldn’t be any way to just *plot* a novel instead of writing it during Camp NaNo, would there?

              • Sarah March 13, 2017 at 5:17 pm - Reply

                Gah, I totally forgot to check back here for your reply! *facepalm* Actually, Camo NaNo is super free, so you can do whatever you want — so long as it’s related to writing! The most common or is novel draftinf, but people do rewrites and editing and poetry and whatnot — so yeah, I’m pretty sure plotting would work so long as you tracked it with a word count! ?

                • Madi March 13, 2017 at 5:23 pm - Reply

                  LOL! That’s fine! Ooh, Camp NaNo sounds so awesome! I wanna do it… ? Hm… I’m trying to think of how plotting with a word count would work… XD

                  • Sarah March 13, 2017 at 5:34 pm - Reply

                    Haha! Ugh, I just noticed all the typos in my last comment. Ewww. XD

                    Lol, yeah, I can see how that would be hard. I’m doing it right now while plotting for my Camp NaNo novel, and it’s working out okay — I just set a “goal” of a few thousand words for sequence of events/backstory (what I call the template), and another few thousand for character development, and things like that. Or I suppose you could average the number of words per chapter in Loyalty 1, use that to predict the number of words in Loyalty 2, and for every chapter plotted, put in that number of words. Or something like that. XD

                    • Madi March 13, 2017 at 5:38 pm

                      LOL! I do the same thing after I submit a comment. XD “Why couldn’t I proofread JUST ONE MORE TIME…”

                      OOOH! I love that idea! I think… I think it might work… *gasps* If I end up being able to do April Camp NaNo after all, could I still be in you guys’ cabin?

                    • Sarah March 13, 2017 at 5:41 pm


                      YAY! Yes, you totally could be in our cabin!! We have six people so far, so there’s plenty of room (they can go up to 11)! *squeals*

                    • Madi March 13, 2017 at 5:46 pm

                      Oh my goodness, I think I really am going to be able to do it! *flails* I’m at the Camp NaNo website right now… do I need to create a project first and then see about joining y’alls’ cabin or how’s that going to work? #totalcampnanonewbie

                    • Sarah March 13, 2017 at 5:50 pm

                      EEEEE OH MY GOODNESS YAY! *flails with you*
                      Yup, I believe so. It won’t let me invite you until you’ve created a project . . . and then, once you’ve done that, you can tell me your username and I’ll invite you to join the cabin. EEP!

                    • Madi March 13, 2017 at 5:51 pm

                      HURRAY! OH MY GOSH THIS IS SO EXCITING! I’m almost done with creating my project!

                    • Sarah March 13, 2017 at 6:01 pm

                      I’M SO GLAD YOU CAN DO IT! What’s your username?? 😀

                    • Madi March 13, 2017 at 6:05 pm

                      YAY! Just finished filling out my project details! Had to think of a synopsis… it’s pretty bad XD Ahem. My username is Madi Grace Ministries! *glares at the unknown person who took “Madi Grace” before she could*

                    • Sarah March 13, 2017 at 6:08 pm

                      Nice! Haha, same — but I bet yours is awesome! I invited you! 🙂

                    • Madi March 13, 2017 at 6:10 pm

    The colors here are AMAZING. I’ve been trying to figure out what to paint my new room, and I realized that was the perfect color. Do you know what that shade of blue is called?

    • Madi March 3, 2017 at 11:29 am - Reply

      Thank you SO much! I had a lot of fun designing the palette for Madi Grace!

      Which color do you mean? Do you mean the background? I think that might be sea green / mermaid green / very light turquoise / aqua. I tried to get this color for my room, too, and I got the color “Warm Turquoise” and mixed it with white to make it lighter. I didn’t get the shade I wanted, though, if that helps.

I have to admit that I never fully understood God until I had a daughter of my own. I was probably too wrapped up in myself back then. 🙂 Anyway, so excited for you! So so so excited for this new blog of yours! Woot! Way to go!
