I know that I have been away from regular blogging for a few months. Thank you for continuing to check in on me and for your continued prayers. Here is a quick update on where I have been and where I’m headed…
I continue to homeschool my daughters throughout the summer. We are on a 3 weeks on and one week off schedule. In June, I started the month by writing and leading a women’s retreat in Fredericksburg entitled Burdens to Blessings, and then speaking at a women’s Bible study on the same topic. Rob and I attended HEAV’s homeschool conference in Richmond, where we visited with dear friends and refueled for the homeschooling year. During our week off of school, we filled the time with Vacation Bible School and my oldest daughter’s 8th birthday party! Where has the time gone?
July is filled with amazing opportunities, large challenges, and God’s continued provision. I am very actively working with my church and a team of amazing women to begin an American Heritage Girls troop in the Fall. With God’s guidance, I will be the troop coordinator for this new troop. If that wasn’t enough, doors have also opened for me to begin pursing and educating myself towards the end goal of writing a book. I keep praying God will provide the strength or close the door. His answer thus far has been to swing the doors open! He continues to provide the opportunities and encouragement necessary to follow this path. At the end of the month, I will be attending the SheSpeaks conference in NC and presenting a book proposal to at least 2 different publishers. Please keep me in your prayers. It is only with God’s words and provision that I’ll be in NC. Regardless of the outcome, God has made it clear that the conference is where I am supposed to be in July. So your prayers are always cherished. Where has the time gone?
In August, life will slow down tremendously for us. However, I will have my next MRI. I have felt healthy, continue to be on the weight loss/fitness path (13 lbs total lost), and feel blessed with each new day. Although August’s appointment does not come without some anxiety, I am hopeful that all will be well. Tomorrow will be 8 months, since having brain surgery. Where has the time gone?
