Colorado: Days 1 & 2

I have had many people ask recently about our trip to Colorado (a.k.a. our honeymoon).  So I thought I'd share some of the things we did and pictures we took!

Day 1:  We drove out to Colorado Springs, Colorado.  Thankfully, Ben was able to drive the whole way....while I slept!  I had never been so exhausted in my life as I was after the wedding!  So, my amazing, new husband let me sleep for most of the trip!

But I did finally decide to wake up when we approached the gorgeous mountains!  
After we made it to Colorado Springs we ate at Cracker Barrel!  It was the best and most affordable meal we had!  I highly recommend it!  Ben and I were able to split a meal and still feel full for less than $10.

Day 2:  Ben and I went out and hiked around Garden of the Gods.  A friend pointed out to me that a better name for it would be Garden of My God.  I would have to agree.  It is a very beautiful creation!  After hiking in the heat, we headed farther south.  We ended up in Old Colorado City! …

More Than Witnesses... Martyrs

I have two great things to share with you today!  1) All the amazing things God has shown me while studying Acts and 2) a great breakfast recipe.  So stick with me even though this might get a little long.

After returning from our honeymoon to Colorado, God laid it on my heart to reread and study the book of Acts.  So I have been reading through the book and studying chapter one.  A great friend of mine lent me a Bible study book on Acts (by Kevin J. Conner) which includes early church history and the ministry of the Holy Spirit.  It is such an in-depth and detailed study that I have only been able to make it through the introduction and chapter one!  I hope you will gain as much from it as I have.

We start with an introduction to Acts.  First of all, know that the title of this particular book of the Bible is not simply "Acts."  It is actually titled, "The Acts of the Apostles;" however, it could also be appropriately titled, "The Acs of the Holy Spirit in th…


Well hello there!  Thanks for stopping by to check out my new blog.  I decided to do some switching around with email addresses and such since my name is changing.  So that means I was able to create a new blog!  In case you didn't know, I got married!!!  I am loving my husband more each and every day, and I am amazed by the lessons God has already taught me in just over two weeks of marriage.  But I feel extremely blessed!

On the note of this blog, I have HIGH hopes for posting this summer!  I would love to do numerous different types of posts, so please don't get too lost in the randomness of topics on my blog!  It will literally be a blog about everyday life.  More than anything, I will probably share the things God is teaching me through my marriage and my husband.  But I would also like to share meals I make (hopefully I don't ruin too many of them), projects I create, and fun ideas for classroom teachers.  I might also throw in fun trips or just simple updates.

I ho…
