Inspirational stories come from the writers heart and soul. God put His "heart" in you. He didn't just create you. He invested Himself in you. You are the inspirational story that emerged from the heart and soul of the Father. Who you are is a person worth knowing well.

I'm Still Here Part 2

This past Sunday we had our very first Kidz Rock Sunday and man did we have a blast!!! It was a lot of work to say the least and yes Satan tried to attack in big ways but guess what he didn't succeed! :) I planned the whole service and let me just say that I look up to senior pastors everywhere lol!

Eleven kids and I lead worship that morning and we had a blast!!! Here is Nolan singing Counting on God which is one of his favorite songs! :)They did such a great job and some of the adults even got into it with us! :)
This picture made me laugh because of my face expression lol! We where doing the hand jive from Grease to the Counting on God song! :) The kids seriously love this song! :)Here is another silly face picture seriously these make me giggle! :)This picture seriously blesses my heart!This is Benny and when I saw this picture it made my heart sing how precious!We had all the kids come down to the front to worship with us and it was so awesome to see them worship their Jesus not carrying who was watching!Another funny faced picture lolWe even had two boys and two girls do offering! :)
Cicoff (Key Off) was our special guest speaker and he did an amazing job!
He got the audience involved which was great! :)
He even juggled with swords which was amazing and scary!!!

And fire!!!
He cut this rope in half and was trying to get the kids to help him make it one again!!
The awesome thing was is with everything he did he had a biblical message to go with it that not only touched the lives of children but adults as well.
Then we had a time of prayer to ask Jesus into our hearts!

And what would a awesome Sunday be with out a pot luck!!! :)
Alyssa, Me, Bella, and Nikee!!
We also did a silent auction to raise money for Kidz Rock and God totally blessed it! :)
I like the back of our kidz rock shirts lol! :)

It was a great day and although it was a lot of work it was well worth it! :) I can't wait till our next one and the kids can't stop talking about it! :)

I'm Still Here Part 1

I know it's been a while, is anyone still out there lol! ;)

It has been a long while since my last post so I thought I would sit down for a minute or so and let you all in on what has been going on in my life for the last couple of weeks! :) This is going to come in parts because if I told you everything that has been going on I think it would be a little overwhelming for the both of us lol! :)

Three weeks ago a dear friend of mine and I painted my office!
This picture was taken when I very first got here. This is what my office looked like! :) Scary huh??

Then after two days of painting, two coats of primer, and two coats of paint on each wall my office now looks like this and I am in love! :)
My desk :)

The view from my office door!The view from my desk!!!

Isn't it just beautiful!! I mean come on did you see what it look like before???? Tyson and Tami have no clue who painted it before but man it was ugly and I seriously felt like I lived in a storage room. NOW however I actually have an office to call my own that I love working in! :) Praise you Jesus!!

Plus it was so awesome because the day I finished my office and got it all decorated I had an unexpected visitation from two of my kids in the ministry who's parents where having a hard time. The girl came into my office grabbed me and just broke down sobbing. It was truly such a blessing to have a warm and welcoming office for them to come into! :)

Then after we prayed I asked the kids if they wanted to play jenga to which they replied they had never played it before!!! So of course we had to play it and as you can see in the pictures I have a long counter type thing in my office and we where able to play on it! :)

Oh and as we where playing I told them that I had this game when I was little and I use to play it all the time with my brothers. To which the little boy who is 9 replied man this must be old.... Oh my gosh I almost peed my pants when he said that I was laughing so hard! :)

It is such a blessing to have my office all done and put together! :) I love my job!! :)

I know that this is something so silly but truly having an office that you love and enjoy being in is amazing! :)
