That was random...

We hear this saying a lot working with the High School students at church. They say it all the time! Speaking of High School... Jeff and I attended a leaders meeting on Sunday night and were presented with "Leaders of the month!" Darius and Nicole said some awesome things about Jeff and I that made us feel great. Then he presented us with the award and a gift card to Chili's. It's so awesome to work with those students each week in our home and at church. They are such a blessing in our lives and we thank the Lord for giving us this opportunity!

The other night I had to laugh as I overheard Jeff walk into the boy's room and say "Just FYI guys, tomorrow we're going to do such and such." The boys said "What's an FYI?" Later I asked him if maybe he had been spending too much time at work :o)

Today my Mom is working on something really cool that I will eventually be able to talk about. Until then, I'm praying that she has the courage to get through it! I love you Mom!!

My friend Julie's dog died last week and I'm so glad I was able to go with her to the vet. I can't imagine if she had to do it alone. Poor thing was so upset and I think the last three weeks or so had just caught up with her. Love you Julie and I'm sorry you had to go through that!

My friend Patti is so great! She is always helping out when I need her... watching the kids and helping pick up Josh from school. I was telling my Mom just yesterday that she is actually like a big sister to me sometimes. I never thought I really needed one until she came along. I'm so thankful that God brought us together!!

I miss my sister in law, Tina so much. I've really been struggling lately with her being gone. I'm not sure why it's not getting easier. She's doing what God has called her to do and I'm so proud of her. What an awesome example of following God's will in your life!!

I'm so thankful that my sister is up and walking again. It's been great to see her so encouraged lately. God truly blessed me when He placed her in my life!

So it really was random but I got some things out of my head and off my heart. Thanks for listening!!

Our baby sitter say's that a lot:)

What a great ministry you are a part of. I can't think of a more confusing time in my life than the high school years! And how blessed I would have been to have Godly example before me!

How special to get a peak at the good things rooted in your own heart.

I love to see you and Jeff minister to the youth and it brings back great memories of our time working with teenagers! What a blessing! Congrats on the Leaders of the Month! The two of you deserve it...I know you put your heart into what you do! I proud of you!

Thanks for sharing your heart with us. I know we get to talk all the time but I still love reading about your life and hearing your perspective again!

Love ya!
