Happy Easter :)

Happy Easter!! I hope you've had a great one. Mine has been phenomenal, and there are several things going on right now that I'm really excited about.

+ our cruise was awesome! It was so nice to get away on vacation with my husband. We spent a lot of time together, and one of my favorite days was on Roatan (and island in Honduras) where he and I rented a car and spent the whole day together driving around the island and swimming in the ocean. This trip definitely made up for our lack of a honeymoon, and I am forever grateful for the friends who took us.

+ I quit my job!! yaaaaaay. I am finally free of retail work, and I could not be more excited. Working in the same store for the last 2 years has been really difficult for me. It was a negative environment with a lot of angry and sad people. I will definitely miss the people that I worked with (and was blessed to hear that they would miss me, too), but I am glad to be gone. Which leads me to...

+ working with my husband!! Yes, I am so excited to say that starting bright and early tomorrow morning, I am a true part of Christian Family Automotive. I'll be in there every day, working with Robert, and learning all the ropes. I have a lot to learn, and I'm so excited for the opportunity.

+ our Easter services this weekend at church were unbelievable. Over the weekend we saw over 19,000 people attend and over 2,000 people make commitments to Jesus! There are so many stores of life change and new birth pouring out on twitter and facebook; it's the most encouraging thing I've ever seen. The Lord is so good. He is changing this city from the inside out. I really can't express how blessed I feel to be a part of this movement, and I had such a great time leading worship this morning and last night.

There's so much going on, and I am exhausted. But I'm incredibly excited about all that's going on right now. I know that this weekend is going to mark a shift in my life, and I'm anxious to see where God is leading me next.


  1. Every single thing here is so awesome and so exciting!!!!

  2. Ohhh a cruise sounds like so much fun! I've never been on one but I would like to go someday! And 19,000 people at church on Easter! That's amazing!
