Recently God has been putting a burden on my heart to specifically focus on girls ministry (within our own student ministry) and to really begin to call attention to some of the more girl related issues that are facing this generation today. Our teenage girls are under a lot of pressure and are struggling with all sorts of crazy things - and these crazy things need to be addressed. I'm hoping that sharing some of the ideas and things we are working on in our youth group will help other youth leaders out there - especially women, to help come up with new ideas and inspiration who work with teenage girls. I know I have looked all over the place for good resources on girls ministry, and to be honest, there just aren't a whole lot out there. I will definitely be sharing some of my favorite resources soon - so stay tuned for that. Tomorrow I will be sharing some of the details from our first big girls event that we held last weekend. It was an amazing and special time and I'm so excited to see where God is taking this whole thing.

State of the Blog Address
In starting this blog, almost a year ago, my intentions were to use it as a means to keep people posted on some of the diy house things we were working on, share some crafty stuff and any other home type things that might come up. It's given me a much needed creative outlet and something I can take ownership of - now that I'm a stay at home mom. The thing is - this home remodel stuff is such a small part of our lives. We enjoy it, but it's totally not who we are as a family. Honestly, we don't live for diy, we aren't searching for the best and biggest deal on shoe storage every week and we don't have time to be on top of all of the latest housing trends. Our lives are much fuller than all of that. We aren't in a constant state of diy, we actually struggle to find time to fit it all in sometimes but we are in a constant state of ministry, and we like it that way.
