Last Day of My First Grad Class

So, I have officially completed my first graduate class. In all honesty, I found it easier than I thought it would be! Yes, there was the annoyance of having to read textbooks and write papers, but nothing that really killed me. I really enjoyed the class and found it interesting. Mainly because it was about psychoanalyzing yourself and why you believe what you believe. Every aspiring counselor loves to dive deep into their psyche to figure themselves out:-)

Anyway, I will keep trucking along with the grad school thing. Next week we begin a research and statistics class. Ugh. Let's hope I make it through this class even half as easy as this last one!

Car Troubles and Food Drives

So, today was nothing exciting, aside from our newer (but old) car being sent to get fixed. Lately it has been not wanting to start right away and Paul has been stalling while driving. Finally, Paul has his final straw with it when it broke down on the highway. Yet again, he let it rest and it started right back up, but this time he drove it right to Dutton Auto. I sure hope it doesn't cost a ton. Nothing irks me more than car problems.

Other than the recent car annoyances, I have been crazy busy with the County Wide Food Drive. Paul will be a bachelor yet again tonight while I head to a another late meeting. I really am excited for this event, but it is SO detailed. Anyone who knows me knows that I am not a detail person. I tend to see the overall picture and move from there. I sure hope I don't forget hundreds of important details the day of the drive...

BTW, if you are interested in helping out let me know:-) Otherwise, put your food out on your porch October 11th by 9am! If you have more questions see ACCESS' website for my info.

So, today was another service for Quest Community Church. We have been meeting at the Wave Room, but I have been unable to attend a service yet because I have been busy with Alive.

Anyway, the service went great and Paul counted 44 people, not counting the band!!! Paul and I left extremely encouraged and feeling like God is really working.

Keep praying for our church and for those of us putting services together. Starting a new church is hard work, and Paul and I have often found ourselves discouraged, but it is so rewarding to see people walk through the door and you have no idea how they got there. God is working and we trust that he will keep carrying us through!

Summer 2008 Happenings

So, this summer was filled with TONS of weddings, and a lot of trips. Paul and I have successfully completed trips to Wisconsin and California, and I ventured to Prague for work. We attended 4 weddings and still have 2 more coming up this year. Needless to say, it has been a crazy busy summer but definitely one to remember.



Blog Beginner

So, this is my first blog ever. I figured that this would be a great way for us to document what is happening in our lives, as well provide an opportunity to share it with all of our family and friends (for those of you who even care! :-)). I'll try to keep it interesting...
