I'm Going To Be An Aunt!!!


Friday night my sister Kasey and her husband Mark announced that they will be having a baby in August!!! I am so excited for them and for this baby. I cried really hard when Kasey told me and even now, when I start to think about it, I get a little teary-eyed. Kasey and Mark have been married for 2 1/2 years and I've wanted a baby for them for a while! :D I love babies and I really can hardly contain my excitement about being an auntie! WOOHoooooo! If you think about it, please pray for Kasey and for the baby that they would be healthy and happy! Thanks.
God Bless,

KCBC Women's Bible Study


Tomorrow Women's Bible study starts again and this time around we will be studying Joanna Weaver's second book called Having a Mary Spirit. This is the followup book to Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World. The two books are very different and yet Joanna's skill for writing to the hearts of women is the same. I am thrilled to be starting a new study with the ladies at KCBC and i am so happy to once again have that fellowship with the ladies every Thursday. I am the youngest in the group but the ladies have all made me feel extremely welcomed and wanted and they have taught me so much already. I feel very blessed to be surrounded by such a great group of women who love The Lord. School starts on the 21st and although i've been enjoying my break I do feel like it's time for me to go back. I'll be diving into a spanish class this semester which is something i have not done in a very long time so i'm interested to see how quickly i'll pick it up again. Hopefully the teacher will not teach in spanish though, that would be bad! :D


I hope you all are doing well and finding joy in today!

God Bless, Sleep well

New Fiction


OK, OK, OK,
I know that I haven't written to you all in a VERY long time and i'm sorry about that But i'm back and i'm raving about this new fiction series that i've been reading. Of course working at Kregels has been great for me and the bonus is that i get to read all these really great books... hmm.. funny how that works. SO the new fav is Erynn Mangum's Lauren Holbrook series. The first book in the series, pictured above, is MISSMATCH. This little book is an incredibly funny, challenging, Scripture filled, laugh and cry your heart out book. Erynn Mangum is a 22 year old college grad who is writing her own books!!! That impressed me so much i picked up her book and now i'm hooked! The second book is called REMATCH and is just as good as the first. Unfortunately i have to wait until June for the third and final book to come out, :( BOOOOO,
But i think i'll survive until then. Kregel's is keeping me busy and school doesn't start until the 21st so i'm on a sweet little break until then. God is good. I hope you all are doing well and I'm really going to work hard to keep this thing updated! Sorry there haven't been any good pictures added lately, Jared and I have been a little slow getting our pictures off of the digital camera; sometimes i hate technology....
Tata for now my friends. Sleep well and pray hard!
