I love this bible study I am currently doing with an amazing group of ladies. For those of you who haven't heard of Angela Thomas, she is worth checking out. She is one of the most "for real" women I have ever heard teach God's word, and beyond easy to follow and understand. It is a dvd and a workbook format. I love how God knows exactly what we need at exactly the right time in our walk. This book is great and I highly recommend it for a bible study; very little homework, but very purposeful. It has me rethinking a lot of what I am doing in my life and why I am doing it.
I just finished reading this book that my friend Tiffany loaned to me. It was awesome! God has used Robin McGraw's words to speak truth to me that I needed to hear this week. I love how she consistently encourages women throughout the book to make deliberate choices-choices that will lead to a better, happier life. I want to make choices that will better my marriage, my children's lives, my health and my happiness. It is a great read if you want a little inspiration in your life.
I am also currently trying to read "A Voice in the Wind" by Francine Rivers. I have read two of her other books and loved them. I am only on the 2nd chapter and finding it hard to get into because I haven't been reading much fiction lately. I want to read a balance of fiction and non-fiction. I am usually drawn to personal growth type books, but I want to get out of my comfort zone and expand my mind with a little historical fiction.
On a side note, Skip and I are praying about possible putting our home on the market. I know that it is a buyers market and it may be difficult, but we both would love to get into a one-story home with a lower payment. I love this home and I feel like it was such a blessing when we got it, but since Skip's hip surgery he hasn't ventured upstairs once. We are just praying about it, but both of us are fine with moving. We touched up paint tonight in the kitchen and living room and tomorrow I am going to clean some baseboards and walls. Yucky, I hate deep cleaning.
That's about it except my cute little nine yr. old son said the funniest thing earlier to Skip. They were setting up a microphone in my bedroom to record a report he has to perform at school tomorrow. He told Skip, "Dad, do you have the mike set up yet? Good, now let's make some magic." He is getting so funny, just like his daddy. He is also obsessed with football. I have never learned so many stats about pro and college players as I have this season. I am already praying for his future wife who will have to be a football fan. He even had to wear his A&M football jersey for picture day at school today. I let him because I want to remember this year as the year he discovered a love of football. I love that sweet little boy!
