A Few of my Favorite Things:)

I have a few things to share today:) I want to tell you all about a few of my favorite things! First is my sling:) Many of you have seen me carrying Hudson around in this adorable sling that my sister in law made me. Everytime I go out someone comments on it! It has been a staple for me when I am out running errands and Hudson loves it! It is my new must have gift for all of my friends having babies:) You can order one by going to the link on the side of my blog for Beau and Jennifer Woodward. www.doctrineanddiapers.com She is very gracious and always has one for me whenever I need it! thanks Jen:)

Next is the Women Discipling Women Conference taking place July 18 & 19 2008! This is my favorite on so many levels:) This is the third annual conference and I have been to the last two. Biblical Counseling is a passion for me. I love to learn about it and learn how to apply God's Word to everything in my life. If you go to one thing this year it has to be this. Last year I attended with my wonderful friend Jen Gray and we loved every minute of it. My church had a large group of women go and many of us are planning our trip for this year. This week is the last week to get the early bird special! So go to the website and sign up..You will love it!

Another one of the many reasons I love this conference is because it is completely planned and put together by one of my favorite people Summer Martin (aka Auntie Summer). She does such a wonderful job and I am soo proud of her:) Love you Sum!
Last but not least are my favorite bags. My friend Cheryl makes the cutest bags!! I love all of the bags that she has gifted to me! She is so talented and creative! Check out her blog www.lulaballou.blogspot.com! I am so glad that she moved to Bakersfield! She is such a blessing to me!

I hope you all have a blessed day!
love ya

Happy Heart Day!!

I love valentine's day! I know that it is just a lame holiday created to make people spend money:) but I love it for many reasons. I used to love v-day for the wrong reasons. I was selfish and wanted Gabe to be romantic and when we were first married I had many expectations that were not met:) My husband is sooo wonderful but at first being romantic was not his specialty and my expectations of him were way too high...poor guy!
Now I love V-day because it reminds me of how blessed I am to have so many people who I love so much in my life. I also love it because it is a day were so many people are focused on others instead of themselves. It is a day where giving is encouraged and appreciated!

When you look around at v-day decorations there are always hearts so today I did a word study of the word HEART during my quiet time. Our heart is the center of our relationship with the Lord. Others see our actions but the Lord knows our hearts. I love knowing that the Lord knows me intimately and cares for me deeply. We can give so many aspects of our lives to the Lord but if we have not truly given our heart to Him we will never know Him! I want to always be crying out to the Lord, "Search me, O God, and know my heart!! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any greivous way in me and lead me in the way everlasting!" Psalm 139:23-24
Search your heart today on "heart" day...better yet ask the Lord to search your heart and be willing to do the work that He has for you to do today!!
love you all
here are a few pics for our V-day morning!
Our heart shaped pancakes and beautiful red tulips !!! I love tulips!!
