Feet to your Faith

Feet to your Faith-A Serve Day at Green Bay Community Church on Saturday, April 24, 2010. Description: Let's put our feet to our faith and walk ourselves out into the community to serve the way Jesus did. FtyF is a catalyst for families, individuals, and life groups to be inspired to continue serving in the community throughout the year. This big event allows you to build relationships, serve, and love our community the way that Jesus does.

Yesterday, Matt and I participated in Feet to your Faith at the Kingdom Come Food Pantry in Oconto Falls, Wisconsin. We spent time raking, re-organizing and re-stocking. We shared a meal with volunteers, heard incredible stories of the work the Lord is doing there and built relationships with one another. It was a great day! Our friends, Annie and Brian and Nicole and Andy were also there, which made it that much greater! Afterwards, we spent the evening with them, attending the potluck and celebration at Church for Feet to Your Faith and then onto the Bay Port High School production of Disco Inferno. All in all, a wonderful day encountering an incredible ministry, being able to serve and spending time with sweet friends. Our cup runneth over.

Quotes from Corrie

Just a few inspirational quotes from Corrie Ten Boom, Holocaust Survivor, Missionary and a personal hero of mine. If you have not done so already, put The Hiding Place on your list of MUST READ BOOKS. This book and the book Same Kind Of Different As Me are truly my favorite books of all time, fact or fiction.

Good HAIR Day!

Last weekend, I headed to Chicago with the girls from Haven Salon and Spa (where I work) to the Midwest Hair/Face/Body Show. My friend Michelle and I headed down early to hit the outlet mall in Kenosha, not too far outside of Chicago. Afterwards, we headed on to Chi-town and checked in at the W Hotel (thank you to Liza for making reservations at such a neat hotel) and then out to dinner at Quartino. Sunday was the the BIG SHOW downtown and it was incredible. So many people, vendors and product. It was an experience! We had a great time and I am so glad I went. Chalk one up to another great experience of our life in Green Bay!
