Summer Bible Study

I am doing the study Me, Myself and Lies by Jennifer Rothschild with the Siestas at the LPM Blog. I got my book in the mail today and am looking forward to the study. Dori at Your Word is Life to Me is doing a sweet giveaway for a signed copy of Jennifer Rothschild's book Self Talk, Soul Talk. You can participate by leaving a comment here. The summer study at the LPM blog is a good way to keep in the Word with a group from the comfort of your own home :-)

In case you couldn't tell...she adores her Papa and the feeling is mutual!

Great Worship CD!

Very excited about this. I have been anxiously waiting for this new CD to be released by my favorite worship leader Travis Cottrell. It is almost time. You can go here to listen to some cuts from each of the songs or here for a chance to win a copy.

What is Sweeter...

I can't think of many things sweeter than a sleeping child. When it is nap time at Grammy's, Olivia starts collecting "friends" to toss in the pack-n-play. Yesterday she just had to sleep with our dog Annie's little teddy bear (kinda yucky I know) but what is a Grammy to do?

Creation Calls

My blog friend Debbie at Heart Choices posted this video Saturday and it is too good not to share. It is a little long, but worth every minute!

Finally Home!

This last month has been extra busy for us with funerals...some extended family and Monday Andy officiated at the funeral for a good friends mother. I was thinking about all the loss and this song kept coming to mind. I know this song means a great deal to my sweet hubby who still misses his dad a ton. It is a song with a beautiful vocal, but more than that it expresses so well our longing for "home."
