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.

NaBloPoMo Day 9 – My Favorite Movies

I will admit it, I can’t pick just one movie that I love.  Instead I have to pick a group of movies.  My favorite movies include:  “Facing the Giants”, “Flywheel”, “Fireproof” and “Courageous”.

Each movies has points about it that I love.  For “Facing the Giants” is how faith collides with real life and has a tremendous impact on a whole community.  For “Flywheel”, I love how when the main character decides to look at God as more than someone to occasionally meet when it is convenient.  For “Fireproof”, I love how Kirk Cameron’s character finally stops just going through the motions of the Love Dare and finds a real faith that has a real impact on his life and that of his wife.

Finally in “Courageous”, I love how men are called on to be truly involved in their families’ lives.  It is easy to speak words, but it is much harder to put those words into actions.

So what is or what are your favorite movies?  I would love to hear from you.
