Love Dare

Good morning!! I just wanted to share with you guys about a book that I am reading. If you have been to see Fireproof, you might have already heard about it. When I was on the Hillside Women’s Retreat, I took some classes on family and marriage. In one of the classes our teacher encouraged us to check out a few books and one of them is Love Dare. I immediatly went over to the bookstore and picked up a copy. I have done a 40 day love your spouse better challenge before, but this book breaks down all of the ways we are to love and really describes them like I have never heard before. For example, I had no idea that I was not kind, but after reading some of the attributes of a kind person I realized that there is much room for improvement in this area in my life. Anyway, after you read a couple of pages (seriously, I have not had one longer than 3 pages) about the attribute it gives you a “dare” for the day. Most of the dares are pretty simple but they really challenge you to think about how you treat your spouse. I have been immensely blessed by having read this book and I highly recommend it for anyone whether you have been married 2 months or 50 years.

PS. Love Dare is on sale at Lifeway for $9.99.

In need of creative ideas

I am helping throw a baby shower for one of my best friends, Anna. I am in need of some ideas on decorating or other ideas that maybe you had at your shower that you loved or have seen at other showers. I really want to make this a special time for Anna. This will be her first. She is having a girl and is decorating the room in pink toile and black and that is the color theme we are planning on using for the shower. I was thinking about doing kinda a shabby chic shower. I am pretty hesitant to do any games because most of the shower games I have ever played have been pretty cheesy. Anyway, if you have any ideas, I would love to hear them.

Sick, but finally some time to blog

Wow it has been forever since I have blogged. I have had so many things to blog about, but know I can't seem to think of all of them. I guess I should update you as to our requests for your prayers. Back in May I submitted my resume to be the Student Ministry Assistant at our church, Hillside Christian Church. After a very long 3 months I was finally offered and accepted the position. I started on Wednesday. Chris and I are so excited for this new phase in our lives and can't wait to see what God has in store for us. Everything has been great so far and I really think that I am going to love it. I love being around the kids anyway and now I have more opportunities to spend time with them.

On Thursday I started getting sick and today I can barely function. Hopefully, I will be feeling better tomorrow. I think between quitting at the law firm, starting a new job and school I over did it this week. Anyway, I guess I better try to get some homework done. I will try to set aside some more time to blog.

Thanks for all of your thoughts and prayers. I love you all.

Please pray for Chris and I. We are being faced with a very difficult decision and need God’s guidance so much. Please pray that our minds and hearts would be clear to see God’s plan and trust in Him wholly for whatever the outcome. Thank you so much.
