It's been forever since I've posted a blog, but with such good reason! I am taking a pretty hefty load this semester and I think my writing brain gets bogged down with all of my Shakespeare essays. Actually, though, I do enjoy reading Willy a lot more than I thought I would. I'm such a nerd - but so thankful to have this chance to learn.
Speaking of learning, I have really been doing a lot of it. And yes, I mean scholastically. I love my major and I feel like a sponge. In fact, I have been working on writing some articles for a teen girls magazine. I'm pretty nervous about it and have been seeking God about what I should write on, but really, I'm more excited and motivated than anything.
In the same vein, I've been learning a lot about God. I have been humbled by my small group this semester - all of the girls are awesome and we've really been challenging each other. Also, doing this adopt-a-block stuff is really teaching Billy and me what kind of things we want to do. It is amazing to know that you are where God wants you and the peace you get when you are doing what he's placed on your heart. For us, it's outreach, and the ministry we've been allowed a small part in is humbling us and teaching us so much.
Speaking of Billy, I am learning SO much about being a wife. Sometimes it's not easy, but it is so worth it. He brings out the best in me and he challenges me in so many ways. And tonight, he told me our valentines day plans - I'm super excited! He's romantic and I love him and I love being married to a total sap :) It's what I've always dreamed of.
Ok, so I will be trying to blog more often - but if you have any comments, especially ideas for a teen girl's magazine article, please leave them!
