some praises....

I've started this blog for days now and keep running around in circles of how or what I want to say.
Bottom line...
God is GOOD.  That's what I keep going back too.  Let's praise Him for a minute....
We have had a great news from our cousins that are battling horrible diseases!  There is still much fight to be had but God is good.
We got great news from a friend this morning....their adoption is a GO!  God is good!
We have seen God work in our kids lives and our church family in huge ways the past few weeks!  God is good!
It's so easy to be in a slump especially with this gloomy weather that we have had.  But God still works.  He works in the small things and even the big things!!!  
After the beauty of last week's snow, I found myself loving the parts that were untouched.  I loved looking at everyone's pictures and the beauty of it.  But then...it would get messed up.  People would walk on it, drive through it, and play in it.  
Sometimes...we get messed up.  …

Live Love

Over Valentine's weekend, Kraig and I took a group of our youth along with our friends at First Baptist Lakeview down to Atlanta to the International Village for a mission trip/retreat.

I have to confess....I was beyond stressed out.  I was imagining anything and everything to go wrong. This was the first trip that we completely did ourselves.  Usually, we go along with others and go to some big retreat where we have to plan NOTHING!  But with this, we had to plan EVERYTHING.  So, I was scared of forgetting things, how everything would work out, and what things could go wrong.

Well, GOD IS GOOD...ALL THE TIME, GOD IS GOOD!  We arrived late Friday night and had a great start off to the weekend.  Mitchell and Kraig did a great job all weekend with the main talks.  And the music was wonderful.  But the main part of the days were doing the missions.

Both Saturday and Sunday we went to different apartment complexes and played with kids and shared bible stories with them.  We just loved…

what is my WHY?!

So, as many of you all might know....I started an awesome new nutritional product a couple of months ago.

At first, it was to lose weight, which to be honest, I still haven't reached my goal but I am closer than I was.

But it has evolved.  Now, I want to continue to lose weight but we have some more things on the horizon and I want to be able to pay for those things without going further in debt or having to use money that we already have designated for other places.  So, I want to do this business and make some money.

Here are some of those reasons WHY I want to continue on with this program...

          1.  To get out of debt.  Isn't  that always the thing!  We went through the Dave Ramsey plan before Kraig and I got married and have done OK with sticking with the plan but we have had some unforeseen things come up and we were forced to get into some debt to pay for some home repairs.  Because I stay home, and would love to continue to stay at home with Rett, I want to hel…

For Anna!

My cousin, Anna is a dear soul.  She is a beautiful and caring person.  I love being able to spend time with her.  When my sister and I were little, we would go to Atlanta to spend time with her, her brother Brad and her parents.  Then, they moved to Germany and well, life happened.  We all lost touch and would only see each other on those rare occasions they came back to the states.  Now we are all adults, Anna moved back to the states, we get to talk and see each other more often.  A few weeks ago, she posted a comment and tagged me in it.  I have been really trying to come up with an answer to her questions.  So here goes....this is her post...
