February 2017



“…For the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7 (KJV) In 1 Samuel 13:14, God expressed how He sought out “a man after His own heart” to rule over His people. He chose David to become king. Now David was not the “perfect” example of a human being by any means. He made mistakes and errors just like everyone else. David had even committed murder later on in his life. Some would consider that a “big sin”. However, David was quick to repent and truly turn away from those mistakes and sins.

Hello, my name is Madison! I am so excited to write for the Hernando Sun. This is a big opportunity and I am very grateful for it. I hope you will find value in what I share.

I started taking photos when I was 3 years old. I started my photography business when I was 7 years old. I love taking pictures of little girls and their dolls, but I also enjoy photographing nature, weddings, events and even celebrities such as John Legend, Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey. Some people thought I was too young to start a business, but it didn’t stop me. I figured, “why wait?”
