I love the blogging community. I find great 'frugal deals and ideas' that other SAHMs dish out on a daily basis, and also find encouragement in other women (most of who I don't know) living their lives and writing about events going on where they are in life--however how small. As I was visiting this blog (this mom is Super Mom!), I left a comment and posted that I was from Lincoln, NE after my name. Someone from Lincoln emailed me on my blog whom I have met once at a Mom's Group of my Church's sister-church, Zion. How Bizarre! Looks like I made a new friend!
On another note, my church's bible study started a new 10-week session tonight. It is Beth Moore's "A Woman's Heart". I didn't really know what to expect because I've never really liked tele-evangelistic type programs, and only being a "Protestant" (it still feels weird to say that) for a few years, this is normally the sort of thing we weathered Catholics would cringe at. But I loved her passion, and she has gotten me really excited about it. Not only that, but as Stefan and I have been going to Grace for a year and a half, we know a lot of people, and a lot of those women I had met and had a Bible Study with last semester. Something I love about our church is that it doesn't minister to distinct groups (other than a small children's Sunday School) like, "College Group", "Junior High Group" with different bible studies or services for each. Everyone in the first church were different ages, and we can only learn from each other. I like that there are women in every stage of their young and old lives with me, some learning about God for the first time, others loving every new bit of information that comes their way even though they may have been a Christian for over 40 years. What a joy, and I'm really looking forward to it. Here's a pic of the book we're going through:
