Feed a Squirrel...CHECK!

Khloe LOVES animals!  I told her  a couple stories about when I was younger growing up we had squirrels in PA that were very friendly. If you held out food to them they would come a take it right from your hand.  One even got stuck on my Mom's leg one time.  It took the food and decided to perch on her leg to finish the snack :)  We finally found a sweet young squirrel that did just that for a small piece of Starbucks bread.

Khloe was so excited that the squirrel actually came close enough to take the food!

Even though basketball is over recruiting isn't!  The hubs is still traveling a lot, so it's never fun when he leaves.  We miss him from the moment he leaves until the second he walks back through the door.

But spring is in the air and May around the corner! We have two awesome family trips planned and a few other things between!

2 Thessalonians 3:3

"I will guide you along the best pathway for your life.  I will advise you and watch over you."

Isaiah 40:31
But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not grow faint.

My boy is 6 years old and a gift from God!  I am so proud he is my son, and feel so blessed that God choose me to be this boys Momma!!  He is funny and goofy, silly and spontaneous!  He is kind, he is good, he is caring!  He is an absolute blessing to his family and we love him SO MUCH!

Undaunted- Daring to do what God calls you to do

I just finished a Bible Study with a group of girlfriends from church.  It was Undaunted by Christine Caine.  Christine is an amazing women with an amazing story of redemption, God's rescue, and hope in her own life.  A major part of her ministry is the A21 Campaign, in where she began a group in Eastern Europe rescuing young women, children and others from human trafficking.

The things Christine and the A21 Campaign are doing in our world today are renegade.  They are at times impossible, dangerous, heart breaking, and grueling, but when called by God Christine stands and lives Undaunted in the pursuit of what God has called her to do!  Her story is inspiring and "awakening".
I challenge you to read this book and do the study and not live your life more aware of God's call on your own life.  We are all here with purpose...

To know God and make Him known!

Here is me, with my copy of this book.  
I love Jesus most of all.  I love my church and the relationships God has brought me through there. I believe my number 1 ministry at this phase of my life is my family, and I am SO THANKFUL to God for blessing me with them!

A girlfriend of mine in the study (on the right) was on a business trip and ran into CHRISTINE CAINE! Whaaa??? It was amazing!  What a God given opportunity to thank her for the work she is doing, and how much we are enjoying the Bible study. 

I encourage you to pray for Christine and her ministry.  To learn more or how to support the A21 Campaign follow this link
