$3 and change

$3***Update: August 5, 2013***

This week I started the Proverbs 31 online Bible study What Happens When Women Say Yes To God by Lysa TerKeurst. The Blog Hop asked us to share:

We’ve been studying and meditating on our memory verse all week. Share what loving God with all your heart, soul, and strength means to you or what God has spoken to you through this verse. Deuteronomy 6:5, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.”

Though this post was written while going through Wendy Blight’s study, I felt it absolutely answers what this verse means to me. I hope you will agree…

Undeserving

Standard

As I drove home from work today, I reflected on the immense blessings God has continually poured out in my life and the life of my husband. I have been at a loss as to just why God would keep giving and giving.

Let me share just a few of these blessings that have occurred within the last month or so…some seem small, while others are just plain huge…

30 Hour Famine

Standard

UPDATE! March 2, 2012

Guess what y’all!! Our 30 Hour Famine event was AWESOME!! Between the three churches that got together and the 45 youth participating {not counting our fearless leaders}. We raised $3,500!! This is enough to feed 10 children for a whole year! Since this is our very first time doing the 30HF, we now have a better goal for next year…$7,000 and 20 children for a year!

Thank you so much for your donations and for sharing our page with all your friends on Facebook, Twitter, and email!! There’s still time to donate if you would like to do so…{see below}.

The Least of These

Standard

If you are visiting my blog from my guest post on Melissa Taylor’s blog, welcome!!  Below are a couple of other posts you may be interested in reading, based on what you have already read this week: Memorizing God’s Word or A.C.T.S.S.

I have wanted to update my blog for over two weeks, but I just haven’t had the time and I’ve had so many ideas and devotions swirling around in my head that they seem to have blurred together into one giant “Go Jesus!” blob!  As I sat at my computer this morning, staring at the computer screen I started thinking about my job.  One of the joys of my job is that I get to work with children and youth and I’ve decided to take this post as an opportunity to brag on these incredible kids.

Christmas Videos

Video

I’ve been looking up videos for my youth, and here are a few that I have enjoyed.  Some are meant to make you laugh, others to make you think, but all of them are meant to help you enjoy this Christmas season.  Got a cool video to share? Let me know and I’ll see about adding it to this list!

First something really old school from Red Skelton :).

Ok…for after Christmas…

Being a Good Friend

Standard

A few people around me are not feeling 100%.  They’re feeling slighted, hurt, unappreciated, and a bit unloved. Why? Well…because I am not the person I should be.  I am a procrastinating, busy body with a bad case of ADD.

The Temptation of Jesus

Standard

One of the Bible studies I am doing right now is on the book of Hebrews written and lead by Wendy Blight.  We’re in the midst of Chapter 2 and the second section, verses 5-18, have been incredible to read.  As Wendy takes us through the verses, we dissect them one by one {I love that!}.  I answered number 11 and all I can think of is how Christ went through direct temptation from Satan; I’ll relate this to question 11 at the end!

First, have your Bible open to Matthew 4:1-11 or click on the link so that you can refer to this passage as we go along.
