Summer Bible Study

Here we go! You all know without a doubt how much I love the Word. You also have probably figured out that even with the best of my intentions, I fall short on completing a Bible study. I'm constantly trying to change that! So I'm committing to a small group study of the Summer Siesta series led by Beth Moore. I love this woman. She knows how to teach the Bible.

We are just starting and last night I watched the first devotional. Beth talked about summer since this is a summer study. The things she said and the scripture she used to back it up really just felt good to my soul. Sometimes in summer things can dry up. Have you ever had a dry summer in your life? I certainly have. Last summer was difficult for me. I made some not so great decisions concerning my contracts, which left me financially strapped. I also faced the realization that I had moved too fast in getting my new house and really should have just taken care of things while under my parents roof....just dry.....but God.

Beth goes on to talk about how summer is also the time for ripening of the fruit. She especially spoke a word that I receive - "there are summer fruits that are going to be picked in this season". Are you expecting the fruits of all your sowing to be picked this season? Are you looking for God to show Himself in your life? Do not get weary in well doing.....

I'm excited. I woke up excited about this Word. I woke up excited about Jesus. I woke up excited about my season of ripening. I've been dry. There was a time and place for that, but now I'm ready to pick my fruit!

It may seem like I'm bragging that life is all good right now. If you knew the intricate details of my life you'd know it's not.....but God gets the glory because its because of His grace that I don't look like what I've been through. Beth talks about how we can be so afraid that if we shout it'll look like we are taking credit for it. She encourages us to get our shout on so the enemy doesn't summer on our fruit!

I hope you are excited about this season whether it is dry or bearing much fruit. If you'd like to join our small group study on Facebook, leave a comment and let me know your name to connect on Facebook.

Blessings overflow! It's summer summer time!

A Help Meet

I write this post after much prayer and consideration about whether now is the time for me to say this.  I came across the above picture on instagram one day, and it caused my spirit to leap.  I have shared with you here my journey of going through a divorce, the challenges I have faced, my time of singlehood while healing.

I have entered a new season.  A season of studying on what it means to be a good wife.  Not just a wife by name because one wears a ring and is married to her husband, but a wife that God created us to be.  The help meet He introduced to Adam in Genesis 2.  The companion that is not just along for the ride, but the one who truly makes her husband's life better.

When I saw this picture, it personified everything I've been studying about and praying for.  To be the kind of woman who, when I'm blessed with the opportunity to be a wife again, does not just go along for the ride....but is active in keeping our marriage firmly rooted in the Word so that it c…

CVS Game

I'm back in the game ya'll!  Back in the day when Dave and I were newlyweds and had just bought our first house, I started playing the CVS coupon game.  I was able to stock up so much that I remember coming back a year later after moving back to New Mexico and Dave still had not had to buy toilet paper!
I haven't played in a very long time because coupling takes time. Recently, I came across this great Youtube channel and it seriously inspired me to jump back in. Right now I'm only dealing with CVS, I haven't bothered to begin planning for other shopping trips.
Jumping back in hasn't been with out flaws. Last week I watched Toni's video spent Friday night printing and clipping coupons, made my list, thought I had a plan, and then woke up Saturday morning ready to go. Something didn't work just right because I ended up spending about $120 out of pocket. I did save like $50 and the good news is I earned $15 in Extra Care Bucks (ECB). So this week I was r…

Colin Kaepernick is bae

I really don't need to say anymore.  
I've been saying people with a platform need to take a stand. I didn't want any Black athletes to travel to Rio for the olympics to represent the USA. I realize that is a big thing to ask. That is the dichotomy of being Black in America.  Black athletes representing a country and winning gold medals in the name of a country who doesn't fully see us. 
So Kaepernick gets all my love for taking a stand by taking his seat.  Personal protests have always been the catalyst for greater awareness and action. 
Let me tell you a quick story. This summer at our Scentsy convention, Orville gave a moving and authentic speech that touched on the current times. I could see how he genuinely felt about what he was saying. There was a moment where this quote by a Scentsy consultant's husband was placed on the screen. I realized when he said "he's Black", everyone remained seated, but when he said "and he's a cop" eve…
