...these are just a few of the words that jump out at me as I look over my list of gifts from the past week or two. God faithfulness and blessings astound me--even when life feels anything but good! He is good all the time and all the time He is good. Period.

In other news, I attended the Christian Life Conference in Monroe, WI with my family this past weekend. So, so challenging and encouraging. I'm sure a blog post with thoughts/notes from that will be written in the near future. In the mean time, go to the website and listen to some of the messages...especially the ones by Norm Wakefield and Paul Washer. It might just change your life.
