Girls Only Ministry: Summer Bible Study

Wanna spend the summer together, in the WORD of Jesus?

I am dying to spend time together, with you, with Jesus, our Bibles, maybe a cup of coffee or a snack, anytime, everyday this summer, for 13 weeks, totaling 91 days.

I think it would be a fabulous way to spend time together, get to know each other more and fall more in love with Jesus on a daily basis.

So... I have set out to write and host a 91 day Bible Study, online. On the Girls Only Ministry Blog, which you can access via the Girls Only Website. You can check out all the details if you CLICK HERE.

I hope you join us! It will be fun!

Thank you for embracing change and reminding me of grace and mercy when I don't embrace it too well. Thank you for allowing me to become ME. Thank you for being YOU.

Happy Birthday Esther!

I have the BEST in-laws hands down! When Andrew and I got married I never could have imaged how much I would love the people in his family.

Esther, my sister, is one of the biggest blessings I could have ever prayed for. There is NO ONE in this world that I can talk to like I can talk to her. We just talk, it never has to be anything serious, but just talking to her makes my day.

She is one of the strongest women I know. She knows what she wants and she knows who she is. She loves deeply. Her work ethic is something I admire. She is smart, really smart! She is financially wise.

She is talented beyond measure! I could listen to this women play the piano all day! Seriously, if I was ever blessed with tons and tons of money, I would pay her to play the piano. When she plays, peace overwhelms me, emotion pours out of her fingers as they press down on the ivory keys.

Now, Esther is Andrew's baby sister. And let me tell you... my man loves his sister! I LOVE watching them do life together. My man adores this women. He supports her in every way possible and he would do anything for her! Their relationship inspires me as a mama, my prayer for Isaac is that he would have a relationship like theirs with his sibling one day.

Now, there is a man in Esther's life, Tim, and nothing makes me more emotional than seeing my sister loved. This man LOVES my sister and she LOVES him. I adore our time together, the four of us. I love that we can do out to dinner, see a baseball game and have a few drinks and really enjoy each other.

I know that she is my sister in law, but for some reason, that doesn't do our relationship justice, this women is my sister. And I love her!

Happy Birthday Esther! I love you! You have loved me and supported me in some hard moments and I could not begin to express how much you mean to me! I am so happy for you and truly love watching Tim love you! I am excited for the years to come, I LOVE YOU!
