My first video to say hello!” Add yours Hello 👋🏻 LikeLiked by 3 people Reply 😂 Hi guys 👋 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply A brave girl , good for you, love the accent !! LikeLiked by 3 people Reply Haha! Thanks so much. I’m a brummie through and through, even when I try to mask it. It has been said that the brummie accent is the worst accent in the UK so I’m always conscious of it lol 😂 Blessings, Hayley 😊💕 LikeLiked by 2 people Reply So a touch different lol LikeLiked by 2 people And far from the slurred and unclear Ozzy kind of speech, for example (right Jon?), yours, Hayley, is the truly adorable brummie accent, if you would please be so nice as to allow us all to build up your confidence in this department, as well, once and for all. Hold your head up high, Dearest! LikeLiked by 2 people Great video and yes, you are so right, I do need to get over it. Like the video said, the accent does get a raw deal for some reason and I suppose I’m conscious of that. I can’t be anything but myself though. Thank you for your encouragement, it is graciously received and I want to get over anything that could potentially stop me from doing what God has called me to do. Much love, Hayley 😊💕 LikeLiked by 1 person This is a great idea! I might do it too one day! Some people don’t even show a picture of themself, which I fo understand and respect. But it’s always nice to know the person behind the blog. And their accent. And yours is really nice😀 LikeLiked by 3 people Reply Yes! You definitely should do Andrea. I was absolutely cacking myself but so glad I posted it now. It’s like I’ve climbed Mount Everest lol. My accent is brummie so not great really. It’s quite common and not seen as a pleasant accent at all in the U.K. but I can’t really help how I speak. Haha! 😂 Love Hayley xx LikeLiked by 2 people Reply And you’re so right, it’s nice to see the person behind the blog, for sure. 😊 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Yay do some more 😀 Well, that was really special because you weren’t reading it (if you were it didn’t seem that way) It was lovely and genuine, well done you 😀 LikeLiked by 3 people Reply Aww thanks Charlie. No, I wasn’t reading it, just babbling really but also speaking my heart. I thought I might cry but managed to keep it together. I don’t know why I feel emotional when I’m nervous but I always do. Everyone’s saying they like my accent!! Can they not hear the brummie sound? I love Americans lol 😂 Have a good evening, Hayley 😊 LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Ha, maybe they’ve been watching Peaky Blinders? Funny how Americans love our different dialects. but I guess they don’t differ that much 🙂 LikeLiked by 2 people Lol. Don’t get me started on Peaky Blinders….great show but the accent is a little dodgy in places. I’m listening to it going “that’s not brummie!” Haha 😂 LikeLiked by 1 person Great video Hayley. You made me smile, and I look forward to seeing more. Blessings to you! LikeLiked by 3 people Reply Oh thanks so much Terri for your encouragement!

Ever gratefully, Your brother Leon 💜 💜 💜 Dear friends, If you would like our beautiful Hayley to consider producing a cover of “The More I Seek You” (I personally can already hear her singing it), do like this comment for her to know. Or leave it unliked to let her know her own songs are absolutely fantastic and what she should focus on. God bless us all.

My heart is filled completely with joy and thankfulness to my loving Father for reminding me who I am in Him and that I can do all things in His strength. I absolutely love the song ‘The more I seek you’ by Kari Jobe and would definitely like to have a go at recording it. The song is so anointed and speaks right to my heart. Thank you for advising me on this. I was hoping for suggestions from my WordPress friends and yours is a wonderful suggestion. Thank you once again. Blessings to you all!

Thank you so much! 😊💞 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Lovely to hear you Hayley and your beautiful brum accent. You did really well and came across warm and genuine. Better lighting would help us see you more clearly. You can get a light to attach to your mobile (if you were using the cell phone)…not sure about bigger devices. Anyhow, we’ll done. I tried recording myself once on my phone just for practice… let’s just say it was hilarious and the not haha kind of funny. I have heard that live is easier than recorded. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thanks Helena, that’s great advice. I will see if I can get a light as I was using my phone to record on. That’s good to know that live is easier! 👍 Thank you so much for listening and commenting. Blessings, Hayley 😊💕 LikeLike We see you most clearly, Hayley. Always.

LikeLiked by 2 people Reply You should definitely give it a try. 😊I’m so pleased that I did as I really feel like stepping out of my comfort zone has been a huge step of faith and a spiritual victory from how far I’ve come in God. Because of the anxiety I had, I would never of done anything like this 2 years ago but God has done amazing things in me and all the glory goes to Him!

I agree with you completely, there is nothing better for me than to worship and be in God’s presence. All glory goes to God! Thank you for listening and commenting, it’s so lovely to hear from you. Every blessing, Hayley 😊💕 LikeLiked by 2 people Reply When I heard you speak I was caught by surprise, but not totally – I thought something was up when I read how you spelled “Saviour” …that’s a UK kind of thing. However, even though a watched a video scientifically explaining why Brits sound Amercian when they sing, it still amazes me, especially when your accent – which is pretty, regardless of what you have been led to believe – is so pronounced. I am looking forward to a great 2018, and my prayer for you is that God will expand your influence as He brings glory to His name through your music and testimony. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Haha! Yep, we spell it correctly 😂 Just kidding. Thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement.
