I am so excited to share this book review!!  I've been following GirlDefined for a few years now and have enjoyed every book they have published and have grown and been encouraged so much by their ministry.  I signed up to be apart of their launch team for their new devotional and was so beyond excited to be chosen!  This journey has been so exciting and fun and I'm so glad I got a chance to be a part of it! I love Kristin and Bethany’s heart for the Lord.   They’re desire to put Him above all else in their lives and to share and encourage girls and young women to do the same.   The thing that first stood out to me as I began to read their Shine Bright Devotional was this line in their intro- “just keep in mind that this devotional isn’t intended to replace time in God’s word each day; it’s meant to supplement it.” I think this is so important to realize as we start each new devotional or christian book.   We are meant to read God’s word and be in daily fellowship with Him.   T

Our 4th of July...

The guys played baseball!

We spent our fourth of July at our Grandpas place like we have since we've been here, but this time we were there without grandpa.  Our first year without him.  It is kind of weird to think about and hard to grasp, but that's just it, no grandpa.  The Lord has brought peace in my heart through this and has allowed me to be ok, but not seeing him during the fourth of July and then not being able to tell him I got my license have been hard reminders, that he is no longer here.
Our Fourth was some what the same like every other year, Aunt Annie and her family were at grandpas place, we spent the afternoon at the beach, swimming in the waves, hamburgers and hot dogs for dinner and an amazing firework show all around us.  This year the boys played baseball with some friends from church, Uncle Kyle came out for the week, and the sun was actually out!
Behold, to the Lord your God belong heaven and the highest heavens, the earth and all that is in it.
Deuteronomy 10:14
