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


Down below are a few of my favorite photos from our trip.  I can't below how fast that week went.  I mean, I knew it would, but still.  We had waited and planned for it for months and it came and went like the blink of an eye.  Still, it was a blast.  We did the Airbnb, so we had a place to ourselves, and our own bedrooms and bathrooms, much more comfortable then one or two hotel rooms, for sure.  We went sledding and had some bumps and bruises.  Snowboarding, which was a lot harder then most of us thought it would be and I think we were all thankful to be able to get a go at it, two days, even though it was exhausting.  My dad was a natural of course, but the rest of us took a while to get down the bunny hill.  At the end of the second day, the last three laps down the hill were a blast.  Not to mention both days were beautiful and hot.  As hot as it can be when there's snow on the ground.  
We took a trip to Sedona, which was also so fun and gorgeous.  We had lunch there, went off-roading, went on a small hike, and had caramel covered apples...  HIGHLIGHT of the whole trip! ;) 
I read two books and we finished the new A Serious of Unfortunate Events Netflix serious.  In all it was just fun to hang out, relax, go on a few adventures, and have school and work off.
It was a great trip and one that I will forever be thankful that we were able to go on.
