And the winner is...

I still don't know.

how about


Let's face it. I am ...Thatgirl.

for better, for worse.

And that title means so much to me. Left to my own devices, I am that girl that says and does the wrong things. That girl that rarely gets it right. That girl that always puts her foot in her mouth.
"Did you hear about what that girl did the other night? She did this stupid dance in front of the

Aren't we all that girl sometimes?


I am that girl Jesus loves. That girl that Jesus rescued from death.

I am this girl:

As he finished saying this, a local official appeared, bowed politely, and said, "My daughter has just now died. If you come and touch her, she will live." Jesus got up and went with him, his disciples following along.
Just then a woman who had hemorrhaged for twelve years slipped in from behind and lightly touched his robe. She was thinking to herself, "If I can just put a finger on his robe, I'll get well." Jesus turned—caught her at it. Then he reassured her: "Courage, daughter. You took a risk of faith, and now you're well." The woman was well from then on.

By now they had arrived at the house of the town official, and pushed their way through the gossips looking for a story and the neighbors bringing in casseroles. Jesus was abrupt: "Clear out! This girl isn't dead.

She's sleeping." They told him he didn't know what he was talking about. But when Jesus had gotten rid of the crowd, he went in, took the girl's hand, and pulled her to her feet—alive. The news was soon out, and traveled throughout the region. (Matthew 9, The Message)

I'm that girl, alright.

"Did you hear? Jesus brought that girl back from the dead!"

That girl that went from death to life...
you heard about her, didn't you?

You are too, ladies.

If you can think of another scripture for the Ministry's theme verse, lemme know, yo.
