When Sinners Say "I Do" Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage

The gospel is something we need in every area of our lives.  In marriage and in singleness.  In joy and in sorrow.  In good times and in hard times.  When life feels good and when life feels confusing.  This book showed so much of my need for Jesus and His grace. It calls us to look at our own sins and not be so easy to point out the sins of those around us.   It shows the great gravity of our sins.  We can all tend to point fingers and defend or blame our sins on others or life circumstances.  I think especially today it is so easy to do this and not truly see our sins.  "It is wrong, not because of what it does to me, or my spouse, or child, or neighbor, but because it is an act of rebellion against the infinitely holy and majestic God." -Jerry Bridges "There can be no small sins against a great God." -J.I. Packer Dave Harvey mentions in the book that with true sorrow of our "little sins", our awareness of God and His mercy grow. Be quick to see our own

Evelyn’s 12th Birthday

Evelyn's' birthday was quite a few weeks ago, but it's never too late to post about it, I hope!
I hardly took any photos...yeah I need to work on that! But I do have memories! J

For her birthday we went shopping, had lunch, got special drinks, and that's as far as my memory will take me.

We got some Starbucks and headed over to Target (such a perfect girly thing to do, right?)  (She got a really cute outfit; a dress and boots)
Then we went to our favorite place of all...Panda Express. Yeah, it's the go to place when dad isn't around.

We joked as we were trying to figure out what to do after lunch, that we would have to go to the salon for Evelyn. She is our salon (make-up) girl. That's her thing. No Frisbee golf, no soccer, no park days, instead…shopping, beauty, etc...Yeah, that's Evelyn.  Did I mention that with her birthday or Christmas money she bought a nail polish set with brushes and fake nails! :)  I told her she is gonna end up in beauty school for sure!

Happy Birthday Evelyn!
For her birthday party we had a few girls over for a sleep-over on Friday night.  Karaoke was the highlight of the night! The next morning we all went to see the new Cinderella movie which was so much fun and it was a really cute movie…I liked it!

There are only a few pictures of her and cupcakes and they aren't that great, but I hope you enjoy them and get the picture!
