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

Family vacation to Utah

So we recently went to Park City Utah for a much needed family vacation.  I am sure some of you either heard or have seen some pictures from Facebook or Google+ or something! :)
But I thought I would do a blog post anyways.  I hardly took any pictures, but my dad got some pics and we also got a GoPro while we were there and got some videos and photos from there also.
So we had an amazing week, #1 just hanging out as a family with no distraction,  #2 touring around and going on adventures and #3 hanging out with absolutely nothing to do!
Like I said it was a much needed break, we had been so busy that we had had little family time and rest time.  My parents keeping busy with two businesses, I am sure you can imagine/know how that could go and then I am trying to do those two small business that I posted earlier and that has kept me busy.  Along with soccer and other things.
So yeah much needed...
So here is a picture from the drive up.  Park City is a BEAUTIFUL place!  The leaves were changing colors and well it actually felt like fall!
This was outside our resort, the place was awesome with so many activities.  There was a pool and a hot tube which we went in everyday (except the first because there was a thunderstorm)
There was also a park behind our resort with Zip lines, coasters, and slides.  We went back there two times that week.  It was so much, everyone enjoyed everything, but the two favorites were the coaster and slide!  The coaster was my personal favorite!

This is us riding up to the slide...

Yeah it was beautiful!

So one highlight is we went over to Salt Lake and visited the Mormon Temple (and saw the Giver!)
This was fun and interesting, and some would say somewhat boring.  But it was a good experience.  We walked around and saw a lot of the stuff they had there and read some of their beliefs.  We were confused on a few things, but we were able to talk to an older women there and ask her some questions.  It was a good conversation, though hard to see how off they are and how strongly they believe. 
The next few photos are of or around the Mormon Temple and I did have my camera for some of these: 


We went on bike rides, watched lots of movies, toured around, went water rafting, visited the Olympic Park, and played games!  Just a few things we did! :)
