If there was ever a time to faithfully blog out my thoughts, ideas, dreams, frustrations, joys...EVERYTHING...- well, this semester is the time! Most of you know I am taking the semester off of classes. If you didn't, now you know :)

Thankfully, I am still able to live in Minnesota while I wait to figure out how I will ever finish college. A friend's family offered for me to live with them until December, and for that I am truly grateful. You might be wondering, 'Well, what is she going to do with ALL that time.' Guess what? I've been asking myself that same question! For now, I am running by own business as a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant ( So far it as been great! I've met some wonderful women, grown a lot myself, and seen the incredible benefits that running your own business has. I don't know how long I will be with Mary Kay, but even if it just gets me through college and then I decide I'm done, then so be it! Or, I could be doing this for 25 years! For now, I just need to be able to afford 4 more semesters in any way that I can. I'm also looking for a second part-time job. No luck yet, but I'm still searching :)

Apart from working, I am really hoping to make the most of my time this semester. I am excited to have time alone with the Lord and to grow deeper in my relationship with Him. My daily quiet times always suffer when I'm in school (I think that's the way it goes for most students), so now I want to really bask in God's love for me. Just to sit and pray, journal and read my Bible for hours on end sounds SO appealing. I can't get enough of it. Especially today: I'm so full of joy and thanks for my Savior right now for no apparent reason. I can just feel His presence so strongly today. Love it. AH!

In the future, my blog posts will probably be rambling and full of thoughts. Who knows...I just write whatever I'm feeling at the moment. If that's your style, than be my guest - stay up to date with my journey over the next 3 months. I would love to hear your thoughts/comments/whatever....that is, if anyone even reads this thing. Sometimes I'm pretty positive nobody does! Oh well. :)

Check out Isaiah 55 today! It's full of promises and reminders of how much Jesus loves and cares for us!
