Personal catch up


Just thought I'd throw a few things out for those who keep up with any details of my life aside from the other prolific (?) boundary pushing things I post here.


This past Friday didn't get out of bed all day/night except to take Jordan to work. Larry says, "are you really going to go outside in your nightgown?" Yes. That's how tired I was. I figured the world wasn't going to fall apart because I was walking outside to the car and driving him to work in my nightie.

I'm going in for my scope (Endoscopy) on Friday morning. Thanks for your prayers, friends.

This weekend is our missions convention. My friend Pastor Walter from Kenya will be arriving on Saturday.

Larry and I will preach a tag team message on Sunday and Pastor Walter will speak for the banquet. It's going to be a busy weekend and another awesome one.

School started yesterday and I signed a bazillion papers for Savanna. She's excited...she loves school and does well, despite me signing all those papers without reading them.

Jordan is meeting with an air force recruiter today and taking the Asvab test. (Please pray for him for wisdom and that God's will be done.)

So........let's end today's blog with 5 things I love...

1) Sandpipers!!! I fell in love with these little birds on the beach. Adorable.

2) Scrunchies. Yeah, I still love 'em.

3) Blogging. I never get tired of it.

4) Getting my hair highlighted.

5) When someone surprises me by doing a job I was dreading doing and they take if off my plate. My "love language" is "acts of service." My husband gets 100% sexier when he takes out the trash, does the dishes, or cleans the bathrooms. I am just so blessed when my husband, children and others in my life do such nice things for me to make life easier.

You deserve to have a relaxing day like that more than anyone I know. You work so hard and do so much for others that you need a day of just resting. You need to do that more often just for yourself.

I love you, Susan.

Relevant Church doing something...

incredibly RELEVANT!

I just heard some news today that really inspired me. A church here in Tampa, Relevant Church is doing a new thing this month called the "30 Days Sex Challenge." (I've never visited the church but Pastor Trinity - our children's pastor - has visited or has met some people from this church and he was very impressed.) Realizing that this is a major element missing from some marriages (the frequency factor) their lead pastor, Paul Wirth, has issued a challenge for all the married couples to have sex for 30 days in a row. At the same time he has issued a challenge for all unmarrieds to completely abstain from sex. Of course we know the Bible says that those who are unmarried should not have sex in the first place but the point is, a lot of unmarried's aren't obeying the Lord's command to abstain and this is just one pastor's way of trying to get them to see that indeed, there is a better way! (God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no

What Verbal Abuse is Really Like, and Why We Must Care
Guest Post: Terri von Wood

In my speaking travels, I meet the most amazing people. Some are connections that go beyond just a night or a weekend of preac hing. One day on my journey, I met Terri von Wood, and we immediately clicked and have been friends ever since.  Just a reminder that all of our guest bloggers this week are available to chat with you in the comment section here on the blog or on my facebook page where the blog is also published.   *** People who have never suffered through or witnessed abuse (including pastors) often don't know how to help women in abusive situations. Knowledge is power and it is my belief that if the church understood the prevalence of abuse, help would be made available.  First, we must acknowledge that the divorce rate is the same  in the church as in the world.  Second, we must understand that the 50% divorce rate does not include all the women who are abused but stay because they do not know what else to do or do not have anyone to turn to.  If those women we
