Day 2: Words

      No Comments on Day 2: Words

Day 2 of #FebPhotoADay called for “Words” and I was wondering for most of the day what would be my perfect photo. As I crawled into bed for the night, I realized I hadn’t taken a picture yet! I have the Book of Concord (the Lutheran Confessions) on my bedside table to encourage me to read some of it before… Read more »

While I was browsing Pinterest, (a dangerous pastime, I know), I stumbled upon a post that someone in my network had Pinned. It was a 29-day photo challenge, using Instagram, for all of February. Here’s the schedule: Since my husband and I just got iPhones, I thought this would be a great idea to get me using the camera and… Read more »

Fitness Goals 2012

      No Comments on Fitness Goals 2012

One of the things that I did in 2010 that really fell off the “important” list in 2011 was a dedication to exercising.  In 2010 I started making sure I exercised, and I did a few 5K events, and topped off the year with a half marathon in December.  After the half-marathon, my dedication left me.  I finished another half-marathon… Read more »

Just because I love this song, (and maybe because I needed a little procrastination/inspiration time), here’s a video of my brother-in-law, Adam, singing the song “Psalm 62” at my sister-in-law’s wedding earlier this month. [youtube]

Wedding planning is hard. I keep telling people that things are going okay, but I’m really starting to freak out and I’m getting to the point where I don’t want to do anything because I’m just afraid it’s going to get messed up. (My perfectionism causing problems again, I see.) What am I learning in this? Patience, definitely, but I… Read more »

Running (Or Lack Thereof)

Hello readers. At least, I hope there are still some of you out there! Helloooooo? ahem. (I feel like every post is an apology for not writing…anyway…) One of the biggest things I’ve been failing with is time management.  Well, maybe not.  Right now, I am: Teaching full time (and logging lots of non-paid overtime hours correcting and planning–because I… Read more »

Good day! I have a few announcements to make here at Learn for a Lifetime! Announcement Number One: I have decided to stay in my current position.  After many hours of prayer, examination of my gifts and how they would fit with each ministry, I knew that God had it in his plans for me to continue at Trinity.  I… Read more »
