I have a confession. I spend way more time scrolling through Pinterest searching for new recipes I will never make, new projects I will never attempt, and generally dreaming of a hypothetical world where I have all the time, energy, and ability to complete the hundreds of things I have "pinned" on my 100 and… Continue reading Blogmas 2019
Good Morning! Can anyone else believe we are already 20 days into the new year? To be honest I feel like things are going a bit slower than they have in the past but I think part of that has to do with the fact that we aren't preparing ourselves for classes to begin… Continue reading My Goals for January 20-26,2020
Back before the new year I made a decision that this year I was going to focus on something fun for my focus of the year....my love of tea. And I do still plan on doing that. However, over the course of the last few weeks (since the beginning of the new year) it has… Continue reading Launching My Weight-loss Journey
As much as I wanted to get my goals for this week posted up on the blog yesterday the truth of the matter is I still wasn't 100% sure what my goals for this week were just yet so I didn't get it done. Pair that with a very long weekend and well, here we are.
Offering a clear and concise plan to help women go deeper in their study if Scripture, this book will equip you to engage God's Word in a way that trains your mind and transforms your heart. When I saw this book on sale at the SBC Annual convention in Dallas in 2018 I was beyond… Continue reading Book Review: Women of the Word by Jen Wilkin
Happy Monday! It is Monday right? I don't even know anymore. With both Christmas and New Year falling in the middle of the week and both the business owners in my life making the wonderful decision to close their business from New Year's Eve until today the days have all just jumbled together. If it… Continue reading Week 1 Goals (Jan 6-10, 2020)
Alright, so I know that I said I wasn't going to set any big overarching goals for 2020 but I am making one exception to that rule. I do have a goal set for how much reading I want to get done this year. Over the past several years I have attempted (and failed) at… Continue reading Reading Goals for 2020
Yesterday I shared that this year instead of making several large over arching goals I'm going to make an attempt at setting smaller more attainable goals on a weekly basis. The propose of this is to feel like I'm getting more actually accomplished throughout the year and maybe feel like I have something to show for myself in 12 months. I had originally planned on starting my weekly goal setting on January 6th since that was the first full week of the new year but the more I thought about it the more I realized I do have some things I would like to get accomplished this week. Thus, the 1/2 week goals for the first few days of 2020.
Well, it is clear I did not make it through my blogmas goals. Instead we found ourselves deep in the trenches of plumbing issues, winter finally deciding to show it's ugly head, and an impromptu move that none of us were really prepared for. Toss in Christmas and it was just a true recipe for… Continue reading New Year, New Goals
"It was the best of times. It was the worst of times." Oh wait...crap...that's plagiarism isn't it? Hold on..let me try this again. This year can 100% be divided in half. I have the "Fort Worth, Texas" half and the "Alamogordo, New Mexico" half. 2019 I think can best be described as "The Year of… Continue reading A Tale of Two Cities: A 2019 Year in Review
It always amazes me to see how God chooses to work. When we left Texas and Southwestern Seminary the plan was to settle in, put our heads down and just simply focus on getting Dusty through a new semester at a new school. We even looked forward to the opportunity to become a part of… Continue reading Starting A New (Not So New) Journey
