Want to win an Ipod Touch?

Then drop by Robin’s giveaway blog, at Pensieve Giveaways. She is giving away a free Ipod touch!

From her site: “Winning an iPod Touch could not be more simple: all you have to do is look over my review of Norton’s Online Family below and tell me (in comments) how you stay in the loop with your kids’ online activity and how this wonderful new software might be of help; if you’re a teen, tell me what your parents are doing to protect YOU!”

You can read the rules here.

Good luck!

Prayer Request

Please be praying for Emme- she is the three-year-old of a family that we know.

I don’t have a lot of details, but I do know that she is in the hospital in critical condition and is not expected to live past today.

Please be praying for this precious little girl and her family. I can’t even imagine how horrible it must be for them.

With a heavy heart,

UPDATE: Emme was taken to be with Jesus at 1:45 this afternoon. Please continue to be praying for her family.

What I’ve Been Doin’…:D

I decided very early last month to read and absorb as much as I possibly can before this year is up. I have been doing a lot of reading, but I’ve also been sneaking in some movies and great music. Some things, like the music CDs, I will be listening to all month. The movies I will watch once, and of course, the books will be read once. Here’s a picture of what I am going to try to finish before February is up:

Here is a listing of everything in the stack, from top to bottom (I’ve crossed out the things that I have already read/watched/are listening to this month.):

The Peasall Sisters: First Offering
The Peasall Sisters: Home To You
Anna Sophia and Elizabeth Botkin: Strength and Dignity for Daughters
Bluegrass Revival: Disc 1, 2, and 3
My Bible (obviously I won’t be crossing this one out! 😀 )
DVD: A Journey Home
DVD:Sense and Sensibility
So Much More
The Small Business Start Up Guide
The Duggars: 20 and Counting!
10 P’s in A Pod
One Minute Millionaire
With Lee in Virginia
Multiple Streams of Internet Income
Do Hard Things
Sense and Sensibility
Public Speaking
Washington’s Spies
The Politically Incorrect Guide to The Constitution

This is what I am doing for my free reading- this isn’t school reading, so technically, there are more, but they won’t be listed here. What have you been reading?


What happens when you combine a severe head cold with a large family? I’m sure you can imagine. :)

Please be praying for a quick recovery for my family. This is has been some kind of cold- yuck!

Many blessings,
