I don't think I have told you but every Thursday night we host a growth group at our house through church. I really love it! Two of our very best church friend couples are there with us (along with some other awesome people) And I am just so grateful to have those friendships! They are still developing but I really enjoy them! And I hope that our friendship continues to deepen! I love the way this group inspires me and motivates me to improve my walk with God. I really want to wake up with God every day. I struggle with that so much. I have to leave my house by 5:45. I like to go to bed around 11pm. Do the math.. it just doesn't add up. :) I am someone who when they should go to bed decides to do 10 last minute things that I didn't get done earlier.  I end up going to bed feeling really accomplished, but I end up needing a nap after work. 

My point being is my new (going a little over a year) really inspires me to have a closer walk with God. And I am so excited to implement a plan. Considering I have to wake up so early and a lot of my mornings start with me sleeping through my alarm. I may just wake up start off with prayer and read 1 verse. But that is better than getting up, rushing out the door, and praying in the car. I know what you are thinking ... why not go to bed earlier... hey now! One thing at a time... :) At least that is what I am trying to tell myself. I am QUEEN of  "I am going to bed at 10:15, no later, I wake up at 4:30, I am going to wake up, pray, read the bible, do yoga, get ready for work, get home, do cardio, shower, make dinner clean my house, take my dog for a walk, edit pictures, crochet, sew, and spend time with my husband and read a book every two days" Yep... that is what I plan out... and here is what I implement "wake, up, go to work, edit pictures" LOL. I am trying to slowly change and realize that I may not be able to do everything in my timeline (wow that is a loaded statement... HELLO INFERTILITY and everything else in my llife)  

So do I have a million plans in how I am going to spend more time with God ALL the time? OF COURSE! Am I trying not to be like that and just start with baby steps, one verse a day, after prayer, in the morning... I GUESS. :) Such a struggle not to go CRAZY and then crash and burn and revert back to doing nothing, but clearly that method isn't working... soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo I am hopping off the crazy train, and easing my way in.

hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

I am going on a road trip with my sister! GIRL TALK! :)


  1. Have fun this weekend! Can't wait to see the pictures!

  2. I was really interested in reading this post of yours. I am kind of going through the same thing. and the word INFERTILITY made me cringe because I'm going through the process of figuring out if I have Cervical Cancer or not. I'm 29, and I never wanted kids, but about 4 years ago, after having been married for a year, things changed, and I am now really into baby town frolics.

    And as far as reading your Bible and such... I don't read my Bible often either, but I do have a great book by Stormie Omartian that's called The Power of a Praying Wife... and I give it a read, and pray the prayers that are written in it.

    Find a church, one that REALLY hits home. I was lucky in that the first church I found (after moving down to FL from IA) was the one for me. But shop around (for the lack of better words). I'm definitely going to be following your blog now.


  3. Nice to read your article! I am looking forward to sharing your adventures and experiences about fun.
