Day One of 30 day blog challenge

Joel asked me tonight why I had not posted day one of my latest challenge.  So here's day one :D

I took this picture of myself just the other day and I absolutely love it!  I think it has a lot to do with the fact that you can't see my double chin or nose hair. HA!

Okay, fifteen interesting facts.  I am going to have to put a disclaimer here to let you know that these are things that are interesting to me and maybe Joel or TinkerBell, our cat.  That being said

1. I grew up in South Carolina, near Charleston. And have no Southern accent to prove it, or the manners for that fact!

2.  I once colored my hair a deep cherry red on a dare.

3.  I am a pastor's wife.

4.  I love to write, but don't really know if I want to be published

5.  We were able to conceive our daughter after trying for a few months and haven't been able to conceive in the six years since.  I guess if anyone says that Hannah broke the mold, they wouldn't be telling too big of fib.

6.  I am actually growing to love women's ministry!

7.  Converse College is my Alma Mater and I tell every young woman I meet that's looking into college that she should go there!

8.  I love to turn the music up full blast when I'm in the car alone.

9.  Most people cry at weddings, I almost always cry at baptisms and sometimes during communion.

10.  God uses books to teach me very real things about myself and how to change or cultivate them.

11.  I've been blogging at various places on the internet for at least the past six years.  I think I like it.

12.  I was converted from vegetarianism thanks to Jack in the Box's Bacon Ultimate Cheese Burger and Crown and Anchor's Jalapeno Cheeseburger.

13.  The first time I ate guacamole, I thought it tasted like dirt. Now I think it tastes divine!!!

14.  I like to send snail mail, but have a hard time keeping stamps in the house.

15.  Our cat, Ralph, liked to sleep on my head.  Our new cat, Tink, likes to sleep right next to my pillow.  I guess I have cathead.

  1. HAHAHA Cathead! I like that.
    I will join you in that challenge! Will you have topics daily, or is this more of a free-form deal?

  2. I think I'll try to do it daily. I don't normally post on Fridays, but can definitely set it up to post one a day for the next 30 days. Woot! You can get the rest of the questions in the previous post. I can't wait to read yours!!

Saturday Rant: Dominoes

I always find it interesting how life can be very much so like dominoes sometimes. Let's see, my husband went out of town this last fall. I volunteered to preach for him while he was gone. I told a friend about the online copy of the sermon. She forwarded it to a few folks, next thing you know, I'm doing a short testimony at my weekly Bible study. What I'm really wondering it "What next?"

You see, when I got done preaching, and my husband came back into town, we talked about how people reacted to the sermon. Then we talked some more when I was asked to share again. And the question was, maybe I'm supposed to be open to talking more often.

To be honest, I haven't done a lot of talking in groups since I had a really bad experience a few years ago. I was always opinionated, in fact I still am. I have lots of opinions about most everything from how warm my house should be to which way the car should take me from point a to b. But I found myself in a group of …

The Minimalist Home by Joshua Becker

I've been following Joshua Becker's blog for a few years and have read all the things and even put them into action. I was excited to be able to read his room-by-room guide for minimizing your home.

The Minimalist Home systematically goes through every space in your home, including the garage and yard, and talks about how to minimize them. Becker has put thought into which spaces should happen first for the biggest impact and encouragement. Because even though it's wonderful to have a minimalist garage, it may not be the best place to start and get the whole house done.

Our home has been trending towards minimalist in nature for a while now. And I'm happy to share with you that this little book helped us take a few more steps in the minimal direction. I loved all the checklists for the different areas. As well as the facts about living space and stuff consumption sprinkled throughout.  The Notes section is full of great resources for further reading as well.

When Through Deep Waters by Rachelle Dekker

When Through Deep Waters is Rachelle Dekker's fourth book, the first three a dystopian trilogy. I was excited to see what other stories she had for us. Fortunately, this one does not disappoint.

Alicen has suffered a tragic loss and is trying to find her way through the grief. She lands in the family vacation home of her childhood friend. The idyllic location reminds her of all the hope she had for her life as a child and forces her to deal with many different disappointments in her life including the life and death of her beloved grandmother.

Here's what I love about the book, one, it's an old-school Frank Peretti style spiritual warfare book in that Alicen is an ordinary person that is struggling with spiritual forces. Two, it's a fiction book that made me want to get out my journal and explore some thoughts that bubbled up about myself! Third, God wins in the end and it doesn't look like the normal everyone desires. Fourth, straight up scripture usage that does…
