A Precious Moment....

Here are some more pictures from Drew and Lindsey's wedding. Her Uncle is a professional photographer and is so good that he has even made the cover of Sports Illustrated! These are some precious pictures because right before Lindsey walked down the isle each Bridesmaid prayed for her and Drew. It was seriously one of the sweet experiences I have ever particiapted it. You could just feel the Holy Spirit's sweet presence in the room...it is a moment that will forever be printed on my heart & I just wanted to share this precious moment with you.

Fall Fun!

On Thursday night my sweet friends Lauren & Kate hosted a girls night at their apartment! We ate White Chili, Pumpkin Crunch Cake, Watched Ghost of Girlfriend's past, & painted pumpkins! It was a great time to celebrate fall! Here are some pictures from the night...as you can see my painting skills are not that great....it was still a lot of fun though! :)

Under God's Big Top!

We are having so much fun going Under God's Big Top in GiGL right now!


My new obsession right now on my tvo is the TV show Glee. It has nothing to do with the plot line or anything else but the phenomenal talent this cast possesses. It's an hour long show that comes on Fox on Wednesday nights & is like no other show on television. The cast of characters normally sings at least three songs and they are so talented! The songs that the glee club sings are not your normal "choir songs" they are popular songs from today's culture. The writers on this show are creative geniuses in my opinion. They are doing things that no one else on TV is doing or has ever attempted to do. For example the high school football team busted out into Beyonce's Single Ladies in the middle of a football game! Watching this show brings back sweet memories from my glory days in show choir....only the songs we sang were not that cool!

Weekend Wedding!

This weekend I had the opportunity to stand up for two very dear friends of mine. I have been in my fair share of weddings but this one was different. I really can't explain it but it was. It was so fun to experience a weekend with some of my closest friends. Drew & Lindsey's story is a true testimony of The Lord's faithfulness in our lives and I simply can not wait to see how He uses it to bless and minister to others. The rehearsal dinner was just as sweet as the wedding. One by one Drew & Lindsey's friends got up and shared about how special they are and how much they meant to each one of them. Let me tell you that room was full of one word....love. You could just feel it. It was such a precious time with dear friends that I will never forget.

One word described Lindsey on Saturday and that was stunning! She was an absolutely breathtaking bride! The wedding was officiated by Dr. Young and was so sweet. He did an amazing job....sometimes I am quick to forget just how gifted he is.

Mr. & Mrs. Drew Daniels!

Our old small group.


Sweet Friends.....

My New Favorite Blog!

Thanks to my sweet friend Kimy I have a new favorite blog! You should check it out here at www.kissesfromkatie.blogspot.com Katie is a girl from Tennessee who spends half of her time in Uganda where she started Amazima Ministries. Through this ministry she is running an oprphanage for some of the precious kids who live in this nation.

Take a few minutes and read her blog. It will humble you, inspire you, challenge you and so, so much more!

My First 5K Experience....

Well Saturday was race day and it was an experience I'll never forget. I woke up Saturday morning feeling both excited and nervous. I was on my way to run my first 5K....something I never thought I would do ever in my life. A month ago if you had asked me if I was a runner my response would most likely have sounded something like, "are you kidding me?" but honestly my curiosity got the best of me and I wanted to see if I could do it. I had always heard...."anyone can run" I just never thought that for myself. So I signed up and started training...I was going to run this race.

The training was interesting....I really liked .5 and even 1.5 but when it got longer than that I found myself becoming a little discouraged....I never wanted to quit I just found myself wanting to be better. Did I have days when I didn't think I could do it....absolutely but that caused me to push myself even harder. I knew come race day that training would pay off.

And that brings me to Saturday. Race day. I wish I could express to you all the emotions I felt when I finished the race but I can't. There just simply aren't enough words to describe how I felt. I can tell you that I finished at a little over 35 minutes and that was enough for me! I beat the goal I had set for myself and was so excited about that.

I can tell you this. A little encouragement and support can go a long way. I know without a doubt I couldn't have done it without everything I had received from the people in my life! Will I run another race? Without a doubt yes! I am already trying to figure out which one I'll be participating in next & I'll for sure let you know when I decide! Hope y'all have a great Monday!

2 Timothy 2:7"I have fought a good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith."
"Behold, I will do something new, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert."
Isaiah 43:19
