$200 in 2 weeks Update

As of today, I am at $158 out of $200 in just under 2 weeks.  Praise God!  I have not quite made the $200 goal, but I still feel good about having cleaned out a few items and finding a few more dollars in my bank account.  There are still more items I have listed on Half.com and my school’s sale page, so more $$$ could flow in soon!


Week 2 Update

Since I am so dedicated and motivated, I am actually a week ahead in my reading… haha, I wish!

I am actually significantly behind and feel more like a drowning woman in a sea of Scripture than a motivated and dedicated individual.  I am hopeful, however, that I can catch up and maintain a steady pace towards the goal.  I keep reminding myself that there is nothing more valuable I could be doing with my time than reading the Word of God.

Thank you to all those who have left notes of encouragement.  I hope to have a better report for next week!


Bible in 90

Today I am going to begin a journey that both excites and scares me.  I am going to read through the Bible in 90 days.  It is my heart’s desires to get the broad view of God’s word through this quickly paced plan taking me from Genesis to Revelation in just a few months.  I am excited for the opportunity and accountability through Mom’s Toolbox.  Pray for me!


Try New Adventures Thursday: Selling Stuff

I was over on my friend Alicia’s blog and thought it would be a perfect time to link up with her Try New Adventures Thursday.  I have way too much stuff.  And not quite enough money.  So I’ve decided it’s time to purge by liquidating some small assets.

Step 1: update my Half.com account to reflect the books I want to sell.

Step 2: update my school’s resource listing with the textbooks I want to sell.

Step 3: take a load of clothing to the local Plato’s Closet.  They purchase used clothing items; however, they are very particular about what they take.  I will have to choose only the newest and nicest items in the hopes that I can get a little cash for them.

The goal: $200 in 2 weeks.  And less clutter.  Check back soon for updates!


I love it when…

GOD starts working.  It’s July 1st.  I finished my Women’s Ministry Certificate today.

In a few days, I will start a plan to read through the Bible in 90 Days, which will also include blogging through the Bible.  I can not wait to share what GOD does in my life.

I also received information on auditing classes at a local seminary.  My excitement over this opportunity is bubbling as I see so many things converging in my life.  Praise GOD for moments when He makes it so clear that His fingerprints are all over my life.  Just when I was feeling forgotten, GOD  is revealing just how invested in the details of my life He is.  I am so thankful that as Haggar said of the LORD, “He is the God who sees.”
