Thriving Thursday 1/22/2015

As some of you have noticed, I’ve been having intermittent problems with my site :( It has been very frustrating and I, unfortunately, havent had the time or energy to deal with it right now. What I can tell you is that if you keep trying, it will work, it’s a complex problem that I haven’t been able to figure out yet.

And part of the reason I haven’t been able to figure it out yet is because…

We’re Moving!

No, we aren’t getting our little dream house and homestead of our own just yet, it is another rental…but we are going to be in the country! It is an old farmhouse,  even smaller than the small house we live in now, but we are all so excited about it! We’ve had a trying time of it the last week or so working to get things scrubbed up (it was awful!), fixed up, etc. So many things have gone wrong that I feel like we should be in a slapstick comedy or something. But at the same time, the Lord has showered us with so many blessings! I hope I will be able to share some of the things with you soon, but for now I will leave you with a photo of what will be our new home.

We are pretty much finished with the cleaning and fixing up and now we just need to get all of our stuff packed up, moved in, and then get settled in the new place…so we’ll be in for a busy couple of weeks.

I also wanted to remind you to check out my brand new book, the Homemaker’s Quiet Time Journal.I haven’t been able to promote much due to all the busyness of real life, but I hope you will check it out–and share it with anyone who might be interested in a printable quiet time journal :) It is my prayer that this book will help women get the one thing that can truly change their lives–more time in God’s word!
