1 year blogoversary : singleness

I can't believe that one year has past since I started this blog...WOW!

I had trouble figuring out what I wanted to do exactly...but I finally came up with something.

For my one year blogoversary I am hosting a giveaway!  I now this is a typical blogoversary, but I will be brainstorming more ideas for upcoming giveaways :D

I am giving away the book "Singlehood That Glorifies God" by John Coblentz.  I have read this book and liked it.  Instead of referencing "courting/courtship" the author references "dating"...that is the only thing I had issues with.  Other than that...it was really good.

It talks about how single people need to understand themselves and focus on serving God.

Here's how you enter this giveaway:

1. Leave a comment sharing what the Lord has been teaching you (1 comment = 1 entry) 
2. Post about this giveaway on your blog or any other sites you have
3. Memorize 1 Corinthians 7:34

Let me know if you've entered the giveaway by emailing me through the "Contact Me" page.  This giveaway ends July 13th, 2013.

Love from,


Trips, trips, trips, & more trips

Trips.  Our family has taken so many trips lately, it is unbelievable!  Just kidding...I've enjoyed it tremendously!  As usual...here are some pictures!  Enjoy ;D

For Momma's b-day we went to Virginia Beach:
(The first five were taken at the Living Museum)

 I love sea turtles

 Momma & Daddy

 RJ...sorry this picture is somewhat blurry....he wouldn't stop moving long enough for me to take a decent one :P

 I just liked the way this one turned out!

At the beach:

The walk to the shore....

 Looking at....

 ....this dead guy

I love the beach!!

 The sun-set....{sigh}

 These chairs were awesome!!

Not sure what these were exactly...I will have to look it up


Visiting family in Iowa:

 Me and Charlie Black...my grandpa's Cockapoo

I really want a Cockapoo :D

 Papa let Sydney drive the Bad boy buggie...

 ...she got a little carried away :P

Papa also let me ride the 4-wheeler...so I gave Sydney a ride, since she isn't old enough to drive it yet!

Best Friends For Life

 Sydney Rheyanne...

I cannot believe she is almost 12...WOW!

Thanks to all who left the sweet comments while I've been away!  They were very much appreciated :D
