Miss Rosey Posey and The Fine China Plate

I am incredibly blessed to serve at a bible study called E-Teen CBS. E-Teen is a community wide bible study targeted for 7th & 8th graders. I have 9 precious teenage girls in my group this year. Monday night, we were able to share with all of our girls the story of Miss Rosey Posey and The Fine China Plate.

The book is birthed from the scripture in II Timothy 2:21 that says
“In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets—some containers used to serve fine meals, others to take out the garbage. Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.”

The story explains how we are set apart for God’s purposes. We were able to teach these girls about their inward and outward purity. It was such a special time, not only for the girls…but for me as well! We sent the girls home with a china plate to help them remember that we are not a paper we should not act like one! And we should not let others (boys!) treat us like we are a paper plate. In my talk to the girls I talked about purity of our souls and wanted to share a couple of truths with you.

You are apart of God’s eternal dream. You are treasured, loved, and valued. You have captured God’s heart and He is in love with you! There is nothing that you can do to separate you from His love. In Song of Solomon Jesus says” All beautiful you are, my darling there is no flaw in you.” You have the eye of the God of the Universe and He is pursuing a love relationship with you! You have been set apart and the beauty of your life is the unfolding of His plan for you!

Couples Bunko

Last night we had the sooo much fun @ our Valentines Couples Bunko. I play once a month with 12 friends, but this month we all brought our hubbies/dates. Sadly I don't think anyone took a single picture, but we did catch one of Kaitlyn when we got home. Grammy & Grandpa Bledsoe kept her...this is priceless....sleeping beauty...

Daddy's Little Love Bug

My prayer for you this Valentines is that you will know just how wide, how deep, and how long is the love of Christ.
May you be captivated by the thought that the King of the Universe is pursuing a love relationship with you!

Weekend With Friends

What a fun-filled weekend!

You ever have one of those weekends that are just jam pack full of fun! Friday night I had a blast with 7th & 8th graders. The E-Teen Community Bible Study group that I am a leader in had a Retreat @ Stonegate. We played dodge ball, ate disgusting things in the Fear Factor Challenge, and I gave a talk on Boundaries. I just love spending time with me girls.

Saturday night, our best friends Jeff & Cori were in town and 16 of us went to eat sushi and Japanese. I miss my sweet friend! She is my voice of reason, the one that got me through all the scary pregnancy worries, the mom I want to be like as I watch her with Cheylee, the friend that although we do not talk everyday...I know would do anything for me and my family. Through the years there have been so many great friends in my life, but there is nothing so precious as having a whole family as your friend. As a wife-I know I have shared with many of you- that you pray for your husband to find a good Godly friend. When Chris & Jeff met, it was an answer to prayer. Love you Stewarts!

Kaitlyn got to see her boyfriend Brady Stewart and we took this sweet photo of him in Chris' glasses for their wedding video. :)


Sunday we had 3 Super Bowl parties to attend, but Kaitlyn could only survive 2. We packed up the new backpack Aunt Kay got us which kept her pretty occupied during the festivities. She is such a mess!
