Giving (Your Body) Thanks

Do you ever take a second and think about the million things our body does for us EVERY. SINGLE. DAY? Let’s move past the every-single-day part. How about every single minute? According to this article from HuffPost and CVS, our heart beats around 66 beats per minute 600 million bits of visual data are interpreted…

Useful, Nourishing and Needed

I shared this infograph on my Facebook wall a few weeks back. There was no attribution, no link back, no nothin’. One of my friends said, “That’s from Jen Hatmaker’s book ‘Interrupted’.” I’m so thankful she shared that info. I’ve been sucked into reading Interrupted and 7 by Mrs. Hatmaker, and each have been profound…

Friday Fun

Happy Good Friday everyone! It’s a weekend to spend thanking God for the many blessings he bestows on us. It’s a beautiful and sunny day today, and it sounds like the weather will be lovely for the Easter weekend. For some Friday fun, I wanted to share this hilarious video that’s started popping up from…

It’s Friday! Woo Hoo!

It’s Friday! What makes this day even better? I have the whole day off PLUS Monday. WOO HOO! You know what makes it even better? The house got cleaned yesterday so me and Mr. Fry are enjoying the day in a spotless house. Can I say WOO HOO again!? I started the day working on…

Quit your cryin’

It’s bothersome when I hear people complain about things. They went through my luggage…and looked at my bras…and my jewelery. How dare they! He questioned me about my proposal. Seriously!? What a jerk! My shirt is just too tight these days. I suck. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been known to complain once in awhile…

It’s a ‘being’ trip

I am so happy! Lovely Wesa has written a post about her and hubby Steve’s quickly approaching (two days!) trip to Africa. If you recall I wrote a previous post about the amazing things God is doing there. If your heart is filled with joy, and you’d like to keep updated on what’s happening, check…

Stop being average

In my last post, I explained that our church is supporting a missionary family in Africa. Part of that work includes a school–the AIC Lare Oibor Child Development Center to be exact. Our church was lucky enough to connect with Compassion International and ask if our congregation could have first dibs on sponsoring the children…

God’s hands at work

I love seeing God at work. Some times you don’t have to look very hard. I’m finding the more I let go of “me” the more I see God at work.

Grump monster, be gone!

I have a confession. I have been very grumpy lately. Just ask my family. I’m sure they would wholeheartedly agree! If I give myself permission to be grumpy, I think I could follow suit all darn day. The key for me is reminding myself I have NOTHING to be grumpy about. Plus, what’s the point…

Excited about EVERYTHING

This is me most every day. OK…not every day, but a lot of times. Found on Pinterest from Paperfashion Instagram.

He is here!

Growing up I attended a Catholic school until middle school. We attended church and God was in our life. You would think that meant there was a strong chance I would grow up being a Christian. But I wasn’t. As I went off to college, got married and started a family, God was nowhere in…

Be “that person”

Today our local CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) program, Sunflower CASA Project honored the 160 abused and neglected children served by their CASA volunteers in 2011. One hundred sixty children were in the Riley, Clay or Pottawatomie County court system last year. One hundred sixty children were served by awesome CASA staff and volunteers who…
