A Week at a Time | 1/13/17

When life gets crazy or exciting or overwhelming or things change, I write. It’s always been this way for me. And so as an extension of this, I am going to have a weekly, “here’s a little bit of life”, post. From working in college ministry to life as a part time nanny. Date nights and soccer games on the weekends. Reading and drinking coffee and squeezing in a run. Just taking a moment to look back at what the week has brought me before plunging into that all so wonderful weekend!


Today marks one year with the sweet boy. Our story is one of being continually amazed by what God has done and is doing. For me, it’s one of wrestling with trusting the Lord and learning to rest in His all sufficient grace. It is a milestone to be celebrating a year with this dear man.

Happy new year everyone! I spent this week on a work trip with the college ministry to Atlanta to attend the Passion Conference at the Georgia Dome. With three days worth of conference, I had a few ups and downs, but overall, it brought some time of reflection and a bit of clarity, and that’s always a good thing!

I have enjoyed the lighter workload and the last two weeks and I just don’t want to imagine going back to my normal working hours. I have gotten a few runs in as well as more quality snuggle time with Zoe. I have gotten some much needed blog work done and done some envisioning for the future. I have made some decisions and got some rest, and it’s been needed.  Continue reading “A Week at a Time | 12/30/16”

Whirlwind week turned into a whirlwind weekend! I am currently en route to central Florida for wedding weekend.  The trip out is going to be a bit rushed, but I am excited to get there and see everyone and then enjoy taking our time a bit on the way home. I already have a few stops in mind. Continue reading “A Week at a Time | 12/16/16”

This week started with my Dad taking a trip to the emergency room with a stroke. And so my week consisted of cutting back to minimal hours at work and spending all my time at the hospital. So grateful that, as strokes go, it was minor. Still waiting for answers as to why this happened, but praying for grace to rest even if we don’t get answers. It’s been a week of hard conversations, but also so much sweet laughter and conversations with family. So thankful to every person who sent their love and who came out to visit. We really are blessed to be surrounded by such dear people.  Continue reading “A Week at a Time | 11/4/16”

With two big events this week for the college ministry, it’s been a lot of running! Costume contest Tuesday and game night Thursday. So today, I am ready for the weekend. Both were a blast and it was fun to see what everyone came dressed up as! Two girls came dressed up as me. That’s always fun! Continue reading “A Week at a Time | 10/28/16”

This week has been one of continual reminders of why I do what I do, and I have needed that. It has been a week of encouragement and just a keen sense of gratefulness for the people who I am really blessed to be surrounded with. After last week just feeling stuck and frustrated and so over it, this week has been the biggest breath of fresh air. Continue reading “A Week at a Time | 10/21/16”
