Sit down...

...We need to talk.
Ah, its ok. No one is getting spanked... unless you all rise up and decide I need a good one for leaving the blog unattended for going on two weeks with no explanation.... shame, shame on me.
But here's the scoop.
Two weeks ago I left on a ca-razy trip. The destination was the Oregon coast for a missions conference. The means of getting there... was the craziest [funnest] part of the whole gig. Its a whole post in itself. The conference was great. I have yet to discover how to summarize/describe a weekend like that in a single blog, with out actually live-blogging it. Hmmm... maybe I should look into that.
I'm back. I'm alive. And I'm trying to figure out what parts of the trip would be interesting enough to the world, that I should actually blog them. My sister also videoed me sharing a testimony in the ladies meeting. I have very mixed emotions about posting it. I'm undecided.
Now on to the current and more exciting news...
We are down to three weeks, Bible readers, three weeks!! The end of June will mark 6 months. And me oh my has it come quickly. Thats ok, and I'm excited to hear everyone's testimonies --whether it was victorious all the way, or struggles here and there. I know of a couple who have already finished. One accidentally chose a 3 month Bible plan and decided to stick with it--- and she really did finish in that time! Another one of you finished in 5 months! I'm blessed beyond what I can express, to hear/read of your desire for His Word. No matter the date you finish.
I thought maybe I should also mention...
If any of you are still subscribed to my old blog ( You may be getting posts in your feeder... that aren't from me. I handed the domain over to someone else who wanted to use the theme 'Every Thought Captive'. So that explains that... and the really cool templates the new inhabitant has been trying out that you may have noticed. Oh, and my archives from that blog have been moved to :
Hope everyone's week is off to a great start!!

"...Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain." Proverbs 30:8&9

You've been a busy busy gal! I've enjoyed your pictures on fb, though. Ever girl's summer ought to consist of some wild and fun road trips. Hope your ears feel better soon.

Hey, I just thought I'd drop in and ask you and my fellow Bible Challenge readers to pray as I try to finish up within this next week. I'm leaving on a several day trip, so I want to get done by next Wednesday. I have a ways to go, but I know through God's strength I can do it! :)

I can't wait to hear your musings on the conference, I'm sure it was wonderful. Was it with a certain organization?
I'm starting a Bible reading retreat with some friends next week too--its one I did a couple years ago and I'm anxious to start again. :) I wish I had caught yours in time, you have quite a crew participating, and it's so neat when you have a bunch to share it with.
So glad to have you back, hope you're recooping more gracefully than I have been! :D

Oh man, switching over is HARD HARD HARD!

And you HAVE been busy. I'm new to your blog so I didn't realize that you were on a journey.

Missions conferences are super awesome. You come away so uplifted and on fire for Jesus. Love it!

When I am faithless, He is faithful.
When mine fail, His plans prevail.
When I fail, His mercy endures.
Without Him, I am nothing.
