Three Things That Are Bringing Me Joy This Week

Continuing to focus on the things in life that make me smile. 🙂 Here are three things that are bringing me joy this week!


I participated in AND completed my first 5K! No, I didn’t run….but it’s a start, right?? It was a fun morning with these sweet friends. It’s such a blessing to have friends that walk alongside me and encourage me not just in a 5K, but also in this race called LIFE. It’s so hard sometimes, and I am thankful for the encouragers that the Lord has placed in my life!


The weather has been so pretty lately! I have been enjoying sitting out on my porch as much as I can…eating luch, reading, doing my Bible study and even napping. 🙂


I put out my hummingbird feeder this week! This was a gift from a sweet friend. I put it right outside my porch and I can’t wait to see my first hummingbird of the season!!

What are some things that are bringing you joy this week? I’d love for you to share!

What Did You Read In January?

One of my goals this year is to read at least 1 book/month. This is probably my easiest goal to meet..I didn’t aim very high, so that at the end of the year, I will have met at least one of my goals. 🙂

So, for the month of January I exceeded my goal! I read two books! The first book was The Syringa Tree and you can read my review here.


The second book that I read was Rising Strong by Brene Brown. I had heard great things about this book, but I can’t say it was a favorite of mine. Because she was not writing from a Christian perspective, there were things that I did not agree with her about. Of course, not all books have to be written through a Christian worldview to be a good book, but in this particular book it caused me to disagree with her recommended approach to some things. With that being said, there were definitely things that I did agree with and I took away some good ideas and encouragement.

My February is off to a good start, as I have already completed one book this month! What about you? How are you doing with your reading goals for 2016? What did you read in January?? Please feel free to share!!

Trusting His Plan,
