Another Round of the Ultimate Blog Challenge

Well the first quarter of 2015 has flown by quickly.  We have spent the time working on school, beginning to hold church services at our home and making a relatively quick trip to North Carolina to see my husband’s side of the family.

With the start of the second quarter of 2015 beginning, I am pleased to be participating in the next round of the Ultimate Blog Challenge.  My plan for this blog for 2015 is to increase traffic to the blog and begin offering some freebies as well.  I am also going to learn how to use Photoshop and work more with PicMonkey to create my own graphics.

In April, the next Proverbs 31 Ministries Bible Study for Lysa Terkeurst’s book “What Happens When Women Walk in Faith” will begin.  Once again I will be serving as one of the Facebook Small Group leaders.

I am also participating in a Bible Study for Kay Arthur’s book “How to Study Your Bible” in order to learn more about the Inductive Bible Study method.  I am also going through the book, “Writing in the Margins”.  One of my goals for 2015 is to grow in Bible Journaling activities.  My one word for 2015 is “Create” and that is my focus for the year.

In the realm of homeschooling, we are preparing for our oldest son’s graduation.  With that we will enter a new realm of parenting.  We are planning on him walking across the stage at the CHAP convention in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania the weekend of Mother’s Day.  Our next graduation will possibly take place as early as the next school year.

New Bible Studies, New Hobbies and Other Things in Our Lives

We are working towards getting back into a routine with homeschooling.  Organizing and decluttering are two words that are heard frequently about our home.  Dennis is in the process of getting his re-enlistment paperwork filled out.  Life just seems to be moving very quickly and so slowly all at the same time.

I am working on getting a Masters degree this year.  I have also become involved in something new, Bible Journaling.  So I am accumulating all kinds of information to assist me in the effort.  As I complete some things, I will be posting them here. One thing I have been doing with this is using PicMonkey to create Scripture Art.

I am really looking forward to digging into God’s Word in our latest Proverbs 31 Ministries Online Bible Study for Karen Ehman’s latest book, “Keep It Shut”.   This book is amazing.  Today we have been talking about being #Intentional.  I want to be more intentional about what I say and do and that includes blogging.

Here is something that I created today.

Been a While

Psalm 51 10

So it has been a while since I have posted.  The Christmas holiday has come and gone and a new year has started.  This past weekend we took down our Christmas tree and decorations.  The living room seems bare with it gone, and it is darker without the bright white Christmas tree lights.  We are starting to settle back into the routine of school.

I have been reading quite a bit and have completed several books.  Now I am getting ready to dive into Bible and Art Journaling along with trying to organize our home.  I am also prepared to get back to posting on a more regular basis.  What is going on in your world?   I would love to hear from you.
