A Glimpse Into the Past...

Winner of the gift basket on Friday was #22 - Morgan Lowery! Please leave me a comment or message me so I can be in touch with you.

Due to the In the Spirit of Femininity blog event, I haven't done a personal blog post in a while now! Here's a glimpse into the last few weeks!

My family, Nick, and the a few members of the Jones family went on a short hike on Sandia Crest. 

Left to right: Richard, Timothy, Nathan, Sarah, Me, Samuel J., Stephen, and Samuel W.

Lovely view from Sandia Crest! I love it up there.

Me and Samuel.

Nathan and Timothy.

Dad and Samuel. And our little Isaac!

A few weeks later, Dad and Nathan headed out for their annual hike. We ladies and the little ones headed to Ruidoso for our annual visit to Flying J Ranch. 

Samuel loves photobombing...


All these kids doing "time"...

Sisters, sisters...

The skit is the same everywhere, but it still always cracks me up!

The food is great! :) 

Last week, I delved into my autumn schedule for school and work. I am in my last year of Faith Bible Institute, studying the Separate Kingdoms, New Testament Epistles II, and Soteriology. I am also working on Spanish and ASL. And.... Lord willing, Rising to the Challenge (The Comrades of Honor Series #3) will hit retailers in early 2015!

We our Hymns For Him concert on Friday. Check out one of the pieces! (Thanks to Ed Vencenti for capturing a clip on his phone!) I am on the piano and my sisters Lydia and Sarah are on the violin. I love the Irish stylings in the middle! Arranged by Lydia Willis. 

The Hymn Group bought me coffee and chocolate! They know me very well! :)

Today, I and my family will be attending the Bella Vista Baptist Labor Day Conference. Lots of preaching, good music, and yummy food! :) 

What have you been up to?
