Thinking about: What God has already done through Make A Difference Mondays. The Make A Difference Mondays initiative is not about us or anything we may do. We do this because of Him and for Him, and will always point back to Him. In the words of Heidi St. John, “Our goal is not for anyone to be impressed by what we’re doing, but be impressed by the One we’re serving.

Reading: Forgotten God: Reversing Our Tragic Neglect of the Holy Spirit for women’s Bible study at SouthBrook Church.

Listening to: The new series on the purpose of suffering at SouthBrook Church  is so good so far, I want to listen to it again and again! This is a big topic which has carried much significance in my life and one that I know I’ll always be highly interested in. As a counselor, as a Christ-follower, and as one more human being subject to the effects of the fall – this topic will never be far from my mind.

Watching: My husband install a new garbage disposal under the watchful eye of our ten year old who daily brims with insatiable curiosity. She’s always been fascinated by how things work and how they’re put together, so her eyes light up and she’s right at Daddy’s side when something needs fixing! To realize that not only do we actually have a man in the house capable of this type of repair work, but the same kid who is simply crazy about being Daddy’s right-hand girl is also homeschooled and it’s no big deal for her to stay up late so as not to miss this moment. This is no small grace.

Thankful for: A beautiful Spring weekend full of undeserved blessings and gorgeous sights that make my heart sing! 
Thankful for a great day at Cincinnati Homeschool Convention this past Friday to meet and learn from The Busy Mom, Heidi St. John 
Thankful for a surprise Sunday brunch made by my sweet husband and kids this weekend. Pretty much the best kind of ‘just because’ gift I can think of! 😉  
What are YOU up to Currently? Would love to hear!!
