Making Progress

I’m on part two of Soar by T. DJakes and have tons of notes so far. He gives tips and there’s a lot of know how in this book. I’m also doing a great Bible study, will talk about that later in the month. And digging into my new Bible The King James Version, I’m enjoying the old language so beautiful AND KNITTING LACE!


Couple More Weapons 

Recently I found some new music and a wonderful podcast. Last month my husband was in the hospital for two weeks and I started listening to them on my daily trips to visit him. They were a total God send in a sea of uncertainty. The music is very beautiful and uplifting and the podcast very helpful for living out the Truth. Both are done by Christy Nockels. Than she mentioned Ransomed Heart podcast and a series they did on Sustainable Living and I listened to it last night, very powerful message. 

Lace Tips

First of all relax lace is FUN.

Second read pattern through and mark it up. 

Third put life lines in, makes it easier when you make errors.

Fourth don’t expect every pattern to be the same , they’re not. You can’t use the same method of marking repeats each time.

Fifth follow pattern and keep track of where you are.

Sixth BREATH it’s only yarn!

Seventh enjoy the results and don’t sweat it if it doesn’t work out!

Gospel Centered Mom-a review

I was wondering why I was lead to read this book . But as soon as I started it I knew, you can transfer the tips into your situation. I’ve been going through a rough time with my husband and I used most of them . Not only are there lots of biblical truths , she wrote about how she applied them in her life and shows us how to use them in ours. This is a book I’ll be reading again,  I also have seven pages of notes . Brooke McGlothlin has written a great book. Don’t be fooled by title.

Disclaimer: I received this book for review from Blogging for Books 

What I’m learning

So far I’ve learned that I can’t follow someone else’s plan for reading the Bible, I just have to let the Spirit lead me. Also I really enjoy reading the Old Testaments , than being led to New Testaments relating to the stories I read. So far whenever I read those two somehow the book I pick to read alongside the Bible lines up. Anchored In by Micah Maddox just proved again 

Faithfulness of God

God is good 

God is faithful

He asked me to sacrifice a few things and be in a place where I didn’t particularly like. That was about three years  agoo.

Two years ago He showed me how to be content with less money , stuff and activities. I’m really enjoying this journey with Him. 

Last year He had me do two Bible studies one on being a woman who doesn’t quit and Husband Project. I bought my first ever Bible to read Ruth. 

To say that He was working on me before I knew it is an understatement because He had plans that He put in motion 3 years ago.

He said that He would restore me in three years. And He has restored my love of reading and knitting. 


A newly added tool against the Enemy :Boy the Enemy is really getting scared of how much progress I’ve been making. This past month has been one rough road. I’ve been reading Gods word and praying on my own but the other night He directed me to this book. I was looking for a video on YouTube and saw a video of Priscilla Shirer speaking and it got me thinking. She says any revival we want starts  within us because God put it in and if He put it in than He will see it happen. Thank you God!

Knit group

Dear God, 

Thank you once again for showing me that I need people in my life. I’m sorry for not showing up for so long , I know now that was the enemy doing it not you. You’re way  is not hiding away it’s showing up even in the midst of my mess . 

Today was just a great example of being wrapped in your mercy. Thank you again
