Happy Friday to ALL!


Oh joys :) breathe a sigh of relief -- because, it's Friday!! This has been quite a full week for our family, and I have to say, a good one. 

{one} Sunday was a wonderful day to gather and worship at Coastal! I was able to serve in the Kindergarten and 1st grade room and taught the kids the story from Exodus 13 of the Israelites following God, even when they didn't know where they were going -- but he directed their steps with a cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night! What a lesson for us all -- it really hit home with our verse of the month Joshua 1:9  "God is with us, wherever we go" ...truth! PLUS, my family got to attend our church's Discover class! I posted my take-away's from the class HERE

{two} Mondays are so wonderful, because they are our family days! We made a trip to the beach, and got some sun and swimming in! The tide was pretty high, so Josh and I took turns staying with Marshall and playing in the sand, and going out for a swim. I got to swim out quite a ways, close my eyes and float on my back, just riding the waves. So peaceful and relaxing! Marshall fell asleep in the stroller as we headed to get some ice-cream, so Josh and I were able to have a little mini-date -- a surprising treat!

{three} This week I was able to finally get together with several friends to take time to really talk about life, ministry, and music. I am so thankful for the friends I have who take time to hangout, more than just a hello in passing. It means so much to me, especially because I'm in a new state (moved from AR to FL in March), and because I'm staying at home full-time now, which means I can get quite a yearning for more than toddler-talk :) You mean so much to me!


{four} I've started to practice keys again and will be playing for church in a little over a week! I like the challenge, and am ready to be streched out of my comfort zone of "just singing"! The song I've been working on first: Endless Praise | Planet Shakers  


I love it and can't wait to introduce it at Coastal! (but it's fast!! eeek! must.practice.more.)
{five} Josh and I are looking forward to co-leading a Connect Group together and hosting it in our home this semester. We will be going through Gary Thomas' book Sacred Pathways: Discover Your Soul's Path to God
- one of our favorites from the John Brown University Worship Arts curriculum! I aim to share little tidbits and quotes here on the blog as well!

  1. So glad we were able to connect! I know what you mean about craving more than baby/toddler talk. I'm home with my nearly 10 month old full time, and sometimes it's just great to be able to talk to an adult.

    Jealous of the beach time! :) We live in central Ohio so there's not much of that going on. Humidity without the water isn't as fun.

    I like the song! Good luck, I'm sure you will do great.

    1. YES! Are you able to get out with the girls?! We are new to South Florida so we are LOVING the beach :D I'm looking forward to the winter, actually -- with mild and lovely weather! I'm sure there are great things about Ohio too, right?! :)

      Rehearsal went well last night, hoping my confidence will be there for Sunday so I can worship and lead others well! Thanks so much!
