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

My Dad's B-day!

My dad's birthday was a few days, I guess more like a couple weeks ago now and we celebrated as always...special dinner and dessert. 

I actually remembered to take a few here they are!
...The whole set up before he got home from work...
My mom made the sign

Owen, there for every minute.  I don't know who is more excited, him or dad.



Cake time!

We did the usual, a walk on the beach, dinner, and dessert.  Last year we did have a surprise party for him, but this year it was just us.  We had a nice and fun time together.
I am so thankful for him, with all we have been through and all he has been through he is such a good example to us all.  Of what a slave of the Lord should look like, of what a husband and father should look like. We have all grown so much closer to God and to each other in these last five year.  Life brings challenges, heartaches, sicknesses, sorrows-trails. Things that make us lean on Christ, because without Him we would be nothing, we can do nothing and would always be discouraged, searching and striving towards something, that when we get, it isn't enough-we want more.  We can only be satisfied in Christ.
Sooner or later everyone will realize this and I know that my dad has and that he has taught us this so many times.  That no matter what we do, whether it be hard or easy do all to the glory of God.
I just wanted to share and encourag and dad has been my inspiration today!
Thank you and...don't forget to be AWESOME!
