"I Shine Live"

Today my friend Julianne called me to ask for my help with a project she is doing for the producer of the "I Shine Live" tour. Today I spent a couple of hours calling different schools in Pennsylvania to offer free promotional materials for the event. Whenever you happen to do telemarketing at any point in time you will always talk to a few characters on the phone... and you never forget about them either!

At around 3pm I called my last school in PA and this meek and gentle woman answered the phone. I began to present this tour to this very quiet woman and at the end of my blabbering on and on she asked me softly, "are you done yet?"

I was a little taken back...

After I told her yes that I was, she told me that at her school they only study from the bible. I then began to describe her that this tour for "tweeners" was biblically based and a great tool for the gospel. She got very quiet.

After a few seconds of silence, she goes off on me! She begins to explain how they don't have radio, television, or the Internet. They have class under trees, and study from the bible and that they don't need anybody else to teach their children. I was so taken back that I almost laughed! I couldn't understand if this was a joke or not.. and then the unthinkable happened... This woman started telling me that I needed God and to not be so worldly.

I had no words.

I told her that I believed in God, but that I was only calling about a great event to help 8-11 year olds learn more about Jesus. She told me that I needed to get off the phone immediately and pray. I told her goodbye and then she informed me that she was Amish and that it would be wise if I became Amish as well. After she hung up... I sat there- stared at the wall- then busted out laughing... then I prayed for her.

Please pray for this Amish woman!

78 days!

Andrew and I are getting married in 78 days! I am so excited... I cannot wait!!

Our Sonic Date

Monday after school, Hana, Audrey, and I went on a Sonic Run. As we were walking to my car we realized how beautiful the sidewalk was around us... We love the fall!! Then I snapped a pic of Audrey and Hana... Audrey hates when I take pictures... she secretly loves it! :)

A Light for the City

This past Sunday was the Light for the City concert hosted by The Nashville Choir. The event was in honor of Michael W. Smith's 25th year in Contemporary Christian Music. It was a wonderful event! I worked my tail end off making this event flawless... and it was very well received by the audience. It was neat to honor Michael who has served 25 years to make worship music what it has become today. Two of my dearest friends Melodie and Hana came to help me with my merchandise tables. I let them go back stage and watch the live feed of the show... they loved it! They also helped me load all the merchandise into the back of my car... there were soooo many CD's!! Thanks Mel and Hana for helping me SO much!

Tale of Two Brains

This video is by Mark Gungor's presentation of how different men and women' brains are. This is really funny and so true!!

Fall Break!

So these past few days have been fall break and Andrew has been in town... :)! I took him to the airport this morning at 4:30am. So early! This past weekend we did some job hunting, wedding band shopping, pick nicking, etc. We went and saw that movie, "Fireproof". It was awesome... I completely recommend it! Andrew arrived Friday and left this morning. It was sad. I hate having to take him to the airport and then be left alone again. It is not a good feeling, and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. Besides the sad part where he left- we had a lot of fun. Yesterday, Andy (Andrew's best friend from Georgia), drove up to see us. We went to Fat Straw, checked out the sites, and I even cooked an amazing dinner for us last night!

Last night, I cooked Chicken Alfredo, Texas toast, and salad. As I began dinner I had the boys go to the grocery store for me and pick up stuff for a salad. When they returned they were acting all funny but I didn't think anything of it because when they are together they are hilarious and always up to something. I just went on about my business and finished dinner.

As we were sitting down to eat I realized that there was a hamburger meat whale sitting on the table. Now let me explain- I DO NOT like the texture of ground up hamburger meat and I am really afraid of whales. They took the time to buy the meat and then hide it in the living room as they crafted a whale out of it. NASTY BOYS!! It is now in my freezer... And they hope that every time I open my freezer, I will see the whale made out of hamburger meat and think of them. Clever... and mean.
