I can’t believe its already the final week of First Step Experience. This session has gone by too fast! I am praying that every person who has been with us these last six weeks has found inspiration, guidance, and love as they take their next steps in following Jesus – wherever that may lead them!
The break will be good for me though because I’ll get to focus solely on Financial Peace University. I am so excited for this class. It starts July 10th and I am just counting down the days! My materials came on Wednesday and it was as fun as getting a new book in the mail, but like, times a hundred. So stoked on this!
Also, I really love bananas.
But let’s just get to the good stuff, shall we?
You’ve heard the whole thing about “sitting is the new smoking” right?
I hope so…its been on the front page of health news for the last several months. I have become quite a fan of taking walks around the cluster of office buildings, working while standing up (in fact, I am standing right now as I type this) and moving through some back-and-forward-bending asanas in my office a couple times a day.

I’ve been going through some tough stuff lately and this Ruth study has been like a good friend holding my hand. I have a hard time talking about it because…well, you know that old saying “beating a dead horse“? That’s what it feels like to talk about it. My friend told me the other night to just keep praying through it, as we all have that one thing that keeps us on our knees.
She didn’t know how much truth I heard in her words because I had not shared how I completely lost it just earlier that day. The anxiety of it all had become too much and the physical effects of it were taking me over. I started crying (like uncontrollable/ridiculous crying) and, truly, all I could do was fall down to my knees and pray.
The situation isn’t any better yet, but at least I got the peace I begged for that morning. And I trust Him…somehow this is going to work for good, even if it hurts for awhile.
