"Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, Who is in you, Whom you have received from God? ... So use every part of your body to give glory back to God..." 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Its been a rough one!

For the last 4 weeks my head has been spinning off its axis. Life has been so busy that I have had to put a few things on the back burner:
  • I haven't posted in DailyMile in weeks.
  • I have neglected a lot of my writing in my blog. Responding to comments, Steve's, Carries ect..
  • I have not caught up on my favorite blogs, Carri's or Michelles.
I have these weird habits, they make me work a little more simpler. If I bring something in I take something out.
EXAMPLE- If I add something to the "Junk Drawer" I have to get rid of at least one thing from that drawer.
So I had a few things added to my plate the last couple weeks. Moving, packing, speaking, vacation, kids starting school and teaching a little class, therefore, something had to give in order for me to have a little balance.

I have kept my head above water.  As life is crumbling back in place I am able to see how much God loves me.
I am in awe at the opportunities God has put in my path. Opportunities to Glorify him through the passion he gave me: Running.

This past Monday, I got the blessing to speak to about 100 ladies about Running the Race.
God spoke through me. My words were not the words I had on my notes!I had enough notes to do a 6 week study. I always have more than enough words to use. The problem was I only had 20-25 minutes to speak about 2 of my passions, Running and Christ. (My family is of course my other great passion but we are all so crazy I wouldn't have any focus!) I really had fun!!
My sister in law asked me to teach a 6 week class on running at her Home school team. I entitled it "Hebrews Runners"
I am very excited to share again, Christ and Running.

I am able to breath through the hustle and bustle of life to see how God is using this gift he has given me to share Him. To Glorify Him. It is so exciting.

Tomorrow is my first class. I am looking forward to where God is taking me.

4 Miles with Jama, Maryann and Erin. It was a great time together. I love those girls!


  1. Sounds like you will be hosting a great class! They are very lucky to have someone as devoted as you are, to Christ and to running! I have finally recovered from the disappointment on the my daughters not making the volleyball team, and now we are already discussing the cross country season. I am very excited to say that I have been asked to coach the Runners club at school to help prepare the students for the up coming cross country season, and have been asked to assist cross country for both the boys and girls team. I am very excited!
    I just posted my 2 year running anniversary on my blog! Congrats on your new home, if you email me your address I would love to send you a card! Carri~A Running bee
