Just a reminder that THIS Thursday we will begin our #SummerStory15 series here on the blog. I’ve been seeing a few of you using the hashtag and I LOVE seeing what your story is looking like this summer.

An Invitation & Giveaway!

Phew. Friday, you came quickly this week.

I hope you guys have had a great week! I’m excited today to share some fun news with you.

First, on June 22nd Proverbs 31 Ministries will be beginning our next online Bible study called, The Mended Heart!

Not only is this book phenomenal but the teachings, the videos and the stories you are going to hear through this study are THE BEST EVER. The Fixer Upper Farm barnyard animals are also making their own smash debut and you just don’t want to miss out on this.



There’s also something really exciting I want to invite you to be part of, whether or not you are doing the study or not.

For five weeks throughout the study I’m going to be doing a LIVE teaching on five different women in the Bible. These women have taught me some valuable lessons and I can’t wait to share them with you. And if you can’t be on live, don’t worry, all the calls are recorded.

Here’s a little video to share more about it:

Summer Story ’15

I love Summer.

It’s my favorite season.

But it was hard to not let my eyes water as my youngest hopped out of the car for the last time as a third grader this morning.

She keeps growing up …

My heart sighed when my middle daughter asked for thank-you notes for her teachers.

She’s become so thoughtful but this year has passed so quickly …

And my oldest daughter took exams for the first time this week.

Three more summers before college …

Yes, my momma heart is all nostalgic this morning. Time keeps marching on and today is one of those days I realize just how quickly it’s moving.

But I think there’s something deeper wanting to surface.


Life is made of them. I miss them all the time. And if I don’t capture them, life’s to-do’s seem to make them disappear.

I know the summer can bring all kinds of crazy to our lives. Trying to slow down and soak it all in can feel impossible.

But as I count down the hours before my three daughters officially begin their summer break, I want something different this summer.


Maybe you do too?

And so I want to offer up this little corner of the internet to be a place to share our summmer stories.

The moments that remind us how quickly life is passing us by.
The days that linger.
The long-dramatic-car rides we’ll laugh at … one day.
The conversations that happen because life offers a few extra moments of connection with the people we love.

Your summer of 2015 is beginning it’s story. So, let’s capture it, let’s remember it, let’s … share it.


Here’s how we’ll do this:

-Bloggers, every Thursday I’ll have a link-up here on the blog for you to post a link to your blog to share your #SummerStory15. It can be something funny, something inspiring, or something just very real.

We’ll start this next Thursday, June 17th so you’ve got time to get your post ready. :)

-Non-Bloggers, we’ll use the hashtag: #SummerStory15 on social media to capture and remember the story of your summer. I’ll be checking the hashtag regularly to follow along with YOUR summer story. :) And I’ll ask a few of you if I can share your picture here on the blog on Thursday’s.

Sound fun?
You in?

Let me know your thoughts on this journey in the comment section today here on the blog. And if you have any questions I’m happy to answer those as well in the comment section.
