>Steph posted a blog about some things I've been thinking about lately that I was going to blog anyway... very encouraging!I thought by the time that I was the ripe old age of twenty-five I'd be a mother. I will be twenty-five next April and there are no plans in the works for children anytime … Continue reading >Change of plans
>I took this part-time job expecting part-time work. This week I had 30 hours, next week I have 35 and the week after that I have 38. I'm really happy this has evolved into a practically full-time thing. God has been so good.

>My 10K is only three short weeks from Saturday. I'm really excited; I cannot believe how far I've come in my fitness from a year and a half ago.

>Contrary to our 21st-century ideas of the modern self-sufficient woman, I will tell you that submitting to my husband in our marriage has provided a freedom for us that I never imagined.We have joked before about Aaron's being able to make "executive decisions". Mostly in the past this has been for what restaurant we want … Continue reading >Submission in marriage
