Inspire Us Tuesdays - Your Women's Ministry

It's Tuesday again! (Already!! Did it seem like the last seven days have come and gone in hurry, or is it just me?)
That means we will have the next installment on our "Inspire Us Tuesdays" series: Women's Ministry: Tell us about your women's ministry team at your church. Do you have one?
I have to be honest. I haven't really had a whole lot of time for involvement in our women's ministry at church since we joined last spring. This year, I was able to attend the women's retreat and I have been able to be a part of our women's Bible study over the last few weeks, so it's been really nice being around women at my church without the kids around.
I think women's ministry is hard to participate in at any church, especially when there are lots of women with littler kids. It's just hard to find the time and energy to be a part of every thing, you know? I would absolutely love to be a part of a conference, where I was able to go away for a couple of nights with the women at my church and stay in a nice hotel. It would be wonderful for me. Maybe one of these years, when I have money and time, that will happen!
I would love to hear about other women's ministries at other churches. I haven't ever been a part of one before, so I have no point of reference. But I think our church does a good job of accomodating schedules and not throwing too much at us constantly to be a part of, but enough stuff to be a part of, you know?
How's the women's ministry at your church? What types of activities do you do there?

We go to a pretty big church so our women's ministry is pretty big and has many activities throughout the year. The one I have participated in is a Moms Bible Study. It runs for 8 weeks in the fall and 8 weeks in the Spring and includes lots of great topics and speakers that pertain to being a mom and wife. We meet once a week and childcare is provided for a small fee (like $20 for the 8 weeks per child). The girls have a lot of fun going and I enjoy the time away from them relating to other moms. I think that they have something similar in the evening for working moms but we get our groove on in the morning. I was really blessed this last semester even though we missed almost 1/2 due to sick kiddos. :(

Deciding to be a part of women's ministry has been one of the best things for me. I've met women and developed relationships I might not have otherwise. It's also nice to know that most things I struggle with as a mom especially with young children are things other moms struggle with too. And that moms who have raised their kids struggled with the same things as well. I look at their kids and think if I hold my kids to the standards in God's Word and love them and pray for them they might turn out okay too.

It was a very good day.

I love it when God smiles upon us. I mean, He smiles upon us all the time. But sometimes, it's like sunshine, and Christmas morning, and rainbows, and babies, and awesomeness. On steroids. And I know that those times are not always permanent, so I learn to really wrap myself in His goodness, to take it all in, be happy, and just sit back and wait to see what He is going to do in my life.
We have been struggling so long. I knew it was only a matter of time before things would be OK again. Where we would feel a little stability. Where we would take all of the things we learned while struggling and apply then when times are good.
We have alot of great things going on in our lives right now. Some really great things. Some amazing, mindblowing, off the grid kind of great things. I wish I could share more, but for right now, let's just say that we are incredibly blessed with some great opportunities God is putting in our lives.
I leave you with a gorgeous picture of our biggest blessin…

What is Your Skin Care Regimen?

Since turning 34 this year, I've been really trying to make sure I am taking care of my skin. I have been using Cover Girl Liquid Powder for years, but it always seemed to break my neck out. And full disclosure, my face cleaning routine consisted of using Avery's baby wipes (which actually do remove eye makeup surprisingly well). So, needless to say, my skin didn't always look its best. So, I received some gift cards for my birthday and I decided to go ahead and spring for some better products. First thing I did was get something designed to clean my face. I ordered the Olay ProX Microdermabrasion System. This system came with the battery-operated scrubber with both a brush and foam pad, plus every day face wash and microdermabrasion wash to be used twice a week. I have really loved using this system. The beauty is that you can really use any face wash you'd like. I will probably buy a pore-reducing wash after the tube they sent me is empty. This system really exfolia…

Our Trip to Orlando and Universal/Disney Travel Tips! (Long Post!!!)

Well, we just got back from our trip to Orlando! And I am tired and sore, but happy and so very glad we were able to do this as a family! Most of my Facebook peeps saw our pictures, but I wanted to share about our vacation and a little travel tips for those thinking of planning something similiar! 
Use a Travel Agent!
First and foremost - I booked my trip, basically last minute, through the amazing and wonderful Lana Kluge . Booking through a travel agent costs you, the consumer, NOTHING. It doesn't make your trip any more expensive and adds nothing to your end bill. What it does do is add a valuable service to your vacation, and that's exactly what Lana offered us. She has been to Disney multiple times and was able to answer all of my many questions up to, and while on, my vacation. Even with booking our resort, we were able to ask where our room was located, as the resort we stayed at (Art of Animation) is very large and I read people saying they had to walk a very long way …
