Busy, Busy, Busy

I'm sorry it has been so long since I have blogged. We have had alot going on lately and there is just not enough time in each day. Here are some of the things that have been keeping us busy:

1. Crown Financial Ministries
We are taking at class at our church called "Crown Financial Ministries." It is a 10 week class that looks at what scripture says about money and being a good steward of God's money. Along with each week's Bible study there are also worksheets to complete about debts, budgeting, life insurance, ect. Although the class hs not gone as in depth about finances as we thought it would, it has been very beneficial in teaching us that it is not our money, but God's money and we must been good stewards with what He has given us.

2. House Improvements
Although our house was built in 2000, we are trying to make some small improvements in hopes of increasing the value when we try to sell it. We are extremely SLOW at this because our opinions seem to be on opposite ends of the spectrum. While this can be very frustrating at times, God is teaching us patience and how to compromise.

Track season is here! Samford had their first outdoor track meet last Saturday and will have one almost every weekend until the middle of May. It will be a very long few months, but I hope it goes by quickly. Needless to say, Chad is VERY busy and spends lots of time working in his office or at home. That leaves me to take care of most things around the house on my own. While it is very tough, God knows what we can handle and He seems to give us time to spend together just when I don't think I can take it any longer.

I'm going to try hard to blog more regulary, even if nothing exciting is going on in our lives.
