Nothing Much

Thursday, February 16th, 2012

I’ve been feeling punky lately so no great blog posts! Sorry–just being lazy and trying to recuperate from whatever this is–hopefully just  a little bug. Of course you know I JUST said, “Hey we’ve been healthy all winter.” Hope you are all staying healthy.

Courageous is now out on DVD and I was blessed with a copy of it for review. I reviewed Courageous when it was in the theater–just my personal opinion after seeing the movie. You can read that here. I cried in all the same places this time too. I still feel the same way about […]

Friday, February 10th, 2012

A couple of weeks ago, I saw an announcement in the church bulletin about training for prison ministry. OH! I’ve wondered for awhile if I should volunteer somehow. But our old church didn’t do anything and I wasn’t sure how to connect with a ministry. And let’s face it, I really don’t WANT to walk […]

  These melted repurposed crayons have been around since I was a kid. But! I like the way she wrapped these. I loved this article–this woman quits modeling for Victoria Secret because she wants to honor her husband and the Lord with her body. (the video clip does show her modeling for VS so watch […]
