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!!

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.

Stories from the Kitchen Season 2, Episode 2: Taste and See






Notes from the episode:

Taste and See by Margaret Feinberg

James Week 10 James 5: 13-20

We finish up our study on James with some encouraging words about prayer and standing in the gap.




Study Questions Week 10


When you don't feel like yourself, what is generally your first response? Do you start with prayer, rest, food, lashing out at others? When you encounter others that are not acting like themselves what is your initial thought? How do you think your relationships would be different if you began those interactions with prayers? Prayers for understanding for yourself and peace for the other person?When you are happy, do you ever try to keep it to yourself because you don't want to celebrate while others around you are struggling? Can focusing our happiness towards God with praise and worship change how we view sharing those moments? God is the source of every good and perfect gift (James 1:17). How can this verse help shape your worship and praise? Take some time this week to praise God for some good gifts, which are present even if you are in the midst of a s…

Thankful Thursday

Hard to believe that it's Thursday already, but it is! Wow! I'm thankful for a whole bunch of things this week, so many that if I would list them all, I'd be here for the rest of the day and into tomorrow. Heck I'd be lucky to be done by the end of the decade.

I'm thankful for my husband! He's a real trooper. Love how he not only cares for so many people through the church, but that he cares for our family. Seems like he's always got just a little bit more time to do what needs to be done, which is pretty amazing considering that he's only got the same 24 hours that I have.

I'm thankful for my little girl. I enjoyed the time away when she was at camp last week, but we've been having fun this week hanging out together. She's pretty amazing in lots of hard to explain ways, I guess she's mysterious in her lovliness. I hope that others are as impressed with it as I am.

I'm thankful for family near and far. I'm looking forward to spe…
