Losing track of time


Just busy doing life with that boy you see there, who photobombed my attempt at taking a selfie! He starts 5th Grade next week!


What I’m currently doing?

Found a wonderful online Bible study group–She Reads Truth via Instagram. They also started publishing journals to go along with their bible studies. Currently we are doing one about the Sermon on the Mount!

Also still following Good Morning Girls. Currently in the middle of You Are Loved which is a book co-authored by the founder Angela Perritt and Sally Clarkson. It’s week 6 already so that one is just about finished as well.


Still haven’t found a Church home in my town. So many of them go against Biblical Teachings & for me that makes it hard….sigh.


Women Living Well Chapters 2 and 3 Discussion


Today’s discussion is about chapters 2 and 3. Chapter 2 involves how to find time to get alone with God and Chapter 3 discusses your prayer life. Basically, you have to WANT to find time to get with God. No one can do it for you. When we do this, it changes our life in so many ways for the better! I KNOW it has mine.

Chapter 3 discusses prayer. Courtney shares how she started her prayer journal when she was in 4th grade which for most of us was when we were 9 or 10 years old.

So, what do you do to find time in your busy life to have quiet time with God and pray. For me, I try to do this in the mornings after work before I fall asleep. I also bring my Bible to work every night and have it out on the desk and read a quick verse here and there, ESPECIALLY if I’m having an especially trying night.. Gods word brings me peace.

Head on over to Courtney’s blog http://www.womenlivingwell.org to see what other women are saying as we all discuss the book!

Our trip to THE Ohio State University

Currently the Ohio State football team is ranked 3rd in the country. We had purchased tickets back in October for yesterday’s game. It was cold and windy plus there were snow flurries off and on.we got there early enough to do some site seeing, shopping and a little tail gating. Also got to see the Head Coach Urban Meyer &  the players walk into St John Arena prior to the game!  Urban is from Ashtabula Ohio, the same county where we live.

A highlight of the pre-game is seeing the Ohio State Marching Band otherwise known as The Best Damn Band In The Land(TBDBITL) perform Script Ohio where a senior sousaphone player dots the I! I recorded this and them my phone died!

Ohio State player well!  Braxton Miller is a beast and he should definitely be a Heisman candidate next year! Halftime featured TBDBITL doing a tribute to the Battle of Gettysburg in  1863 that was pretty awesome! Their performance ended with fireworks, always a plus.

Final score was 42-14, Ohio State! 23 consecutive wins for Urban Meyer at  Ohio State a new school record!!!

We ended our night at an authentic Mexican restaurant eating dinner. It was right in front of our hotel. Yum!

We’re almost home now! In time for the Steelers/Browns game! GO STEELERS!!
