Not Part of the Plan- GirlDefined

I was so thankful to again be chosen to be a part of the launch team for GirlDefined’s new book: “Not Part of the Plan: Trusting God with the twists and turns of your story.” I was so excited when they announced this new book. I’ve been so encouraged as I’ve followed the story of Bethany’s long journey of singleness and Kristen’s trial of infertility. Their openness to these struggles have encouraged me so much as I see their love for the Lord grow even in the midst of hard. I remember hearing Kristen share of her third miscarriage at the 2019 GirlDefined conference- months after a big and hard life disappointment for me. I was lost and confused and my only hope was to cling to the Lord as my life didn’t go in the direction I had hoped it would. And hearing the struggle Kristen had gone through and how the Lord comforted and worked in her heart was so helpful.  I was so excited to read this book. I’ve loved every book of theirs. It’s so personable and so very practical. They share thei

Beginning of Fall (2018) Semester

It's been a while.  A hot minute since I last posted.  There's something about starting school, getting back into the swing of things, and organizing things that make me want to sit down and actually write a post.  I've read three books in the last two weeks, it's been a while since I've done that.  And when I'm on a role with reading then I feel like I need to be on a role with posting on here and then also my book review blog.  But whenever I try to write a book review it never, ever comes out right.  I'm scared to share too much, but also not enough.  I'm a super private person.  Unless I'm with my family, then I'm probably considered a complainer with them.  But around other people it's hard for me to really open up, it takes a while to trust and I have to be good friends and really like them to be comfortable enough to share.  So writing a blog post on some, somewhat personal things can be intimating.  A little haunting.  Did I mention I also over think everything which is another reason I'm not SUPER big on social media thing.  I enjoy it, do it once in a while, but mostly I just spy on others.  I'm really good at that.  I see things, I notice.  I like to watch and read people.  I sometimes can feel other people's emotions, but also be completely drowned in them as well.  It's been a good few months to learn to love, forgive and see a lot of my own sin as I walk through this crazy life.  It's good to just live in the grace of today.  Not worrying about tomorrow, sufficient is today's troubles.

I start school this week. Yay.  NO, really this will be a good, but different year for me.  It's my first time EVER, taking a class on campus.  I'm excited, but also a bit nervous. I know it's good for me, but I'm just not sure how I will do learning in a class room setting, I don't think I'll do as well.  But it's a little hoorah for my last semester.  After these three(?) months I'll be done with school, that's the plan at least.  I'll have two certificates that will allow me to apply at other office managements or bookkeeping positions if I ever needed or wanted to.  I mean, I might take a class or two for fun with my sister, but I'm really planning on being done with school... forEVER.

To the beginning of my last semester
