These time hop photos! 
They grow so fast... snuggle them while you can... kiss them while they'll let you... spend all the time you can with them... be present.

Pretty soon you'll blink and they'll be grown and not need you anymore.

These two will be in 4th and 1st grades in 4 days. 
I'm blessed to be able to take them to school and even teach in the same school with them this year.

Oh my gosh! Such an amazing day! Beautiful hiking weather! Beautiful hiking companions!

This was our last hike of the summer small group session at Rez Church... and we had to be a little flexible due to a full parking lot at Bridal Veil Falls Trailhead... but Jon found us a great trail to hike today.

God had something great for us today... just LOOK at all those wild flowers! 
Looking forward to leading this group again next summer.

Nothing like coming around the last corner of your hike and seeing a big bull elk headed up the trail in your direction... Beautiful day for a hike in Estes Park... Gem Lake Trail.

Beautiful people... great fellowship... amazing views.

It's been a great summer for hiking with my Rez Church small group. One more hike left for this small group session if anyone wants to join us on the Bridal Vails Falls trail next Saturday.

Do The Things That Scare You

Have you ever done anything that scared you?

 

Do the things that scare you… that you know are right… but they might be a little bit nerve-wracking. Do those things. You will be glad that you did. You will inspire somebody along the way…

 

Have you ever been to a foreign country? Comment on this post what countries have you been to and why did you go.

 

I’m sitting out here in my driveway in my car and just thinking of the time that time that very first time so I went to Peru. I went on a short term missions trip.

 

It was a short term in trip… 7 or 10 days or something like that, and it’s been 16 years ago since I was in Peru that first time.

 

While I was there, I was on the radio and I was on the television and as a part of this team that that went to Peru, and I was the youngest person on the team.

 

I think it was 22 years old maybe 21 something like that.

 

The people of Huanuco just really grabbed hold of me…

 

Wanted me to be the spokesperson for all of the teenagers in in the town to try and help encourage them to to live good and healthy lives… to follow the Lord

 

They really wanted me to tell my story

 

I was just thinking about that trip and remembering like what it felt like…

 

These people actually want to hear my story.

 

I learned that I have a voice and I have something that people want to hear… and maybe not everybody which is totally fine…

 

So there was a group of people in Huanuco at that time who really wanted and needed to hear my story…

 

and that’s what’s going on now in this season of my life…

 

there are group of moms out there that are going through what I’ve walked through… I want you to grab hold of the pieces that really capture your heart that really speak to you and and let them transform you…

 

and learn from the mistakes I have made.

 

I want to inspire you to be the best mom that you can be… to be the best wife you can be… to be the best mom… the best woman that you can be… the best person… and that you would just grab hold of the things you need to in order to do that.

 

I encourage you to do the things that scare you… that you know are right… but they might be a little bit nerve-wracking. Do those things. You will be glad that you did. You will inspire somebody along the way… I promise.

 

Enjoy the present
