My Cochlear Story: Part 2

Dr. Wayne Grudem

(…yup!  He’s wearing my microphone!) Back in April I had the privilege of hearing Dr. Wayne Grudem speak on the Gifts of the Spirit.  While he was speaking, I was struck by a comment he made.  He said, “Many people will seek medical healing, but they won’t seek spiritual.”  As my husband and I were driving home, I realized that I had been doing the opposite.  The Spirit revealed to me that I had completely written off medical healing because of the two previous attempts. The next day, my husband was giving Dr. Grudem my FM System (an assistive listening […]

My Cochlear Story: Part 1

I’ve had a hearing loss most of my life.  When I was one I had spinal meningitis and as a result of that (or the antibiotics) I lost half of the hearing in my left ear and some in my right.  When I was a freshman in high school, I was riding the bus to school and lost all of it in my right ear.  The doctors couldn’t explain what happened, so we tried different things to see if it would come back and nothing worked.  At the time, my parents had me tested to see if I would be […]

How Do I Make A Monthly Menu? On My HUGE Wall Calendar!

Back in September I came up with an idea for keeping our monthly calendar/menu in an easily accessible place that I didn’t have to hunt down in order to view.  I figured we could paint a ginormous square on our wall with chalkboard paint and create a monthly calendar.  It worked great for the first month, but since we were using chalkboard pens, it didn’t erase at the end of the month 🙁 So onto plan B.  We mounted plywood on the wall and adhered black contact paper to it (After wiping it down really well so there wouldn’t be […]

Advent Christmas Decor

Christmas Tree

Back in November one of the Pastor’s at my church (Mars Hill Church in Albuquerque) approached me about heading up the Advent decor.  I was honored, and humbled, and a little nervous too.  I wasn’t sure if I would be able to do it because I was having surgery and didn’t know how it would go.  Greg and I prayed, and we felt like God said WE should do it.  So we said yes, with the understanding that I might be limited in what I could do.  God graciously provided help in the form of interns (you guys are bomb!)

Top Gun Birthday Party

DorianBD2

I’m not super proud of how late I am in posting this…but I still think it was a fun party!  Last *ahem* February, I asked some of my friends if anyone was interested in me helping them throw a party for their little one.  At the time I was wanting to build up my portfolio so I could start a party planning business, but that has since fallen to the way-side (fear not! I still plan on doing parties, and my new business venture is in that realm…muhahah…I just don’t want to HAVE TO do it). Well, one of my […]
