Day #4

...your favorite book:

Well, I'm not sure I can pin-point my favorite book but I can talk about the books I have read.

My favorite book in the Bible is Acts. I really love Paul and all of his adventures and how he is so courageous. I love toward the end when he gets shipwrecked. Not that I love this happened to him, but its just and exciting story that sounds like it could be made into a movie. It just really held my attention which is sort of hard to do when you're reading the Bible. Right now I am reading through the Corinthians. I am half-way through 2 Corinthians. Sometimes my husband and I read it together and sometimes I read it by myself. I haven't been reading it everyday like I wanted to, but it's still always uplifting and helping me to grow in my relationship with Christ.

In High School I used to love romance novels. My aunt would give my sister and I Christian romance novels when she was done with them. Then after I graduated, I was more into 'self-help' books. I really like Joyce Meyer's books. We have The Ransomed Heart by John Eldridge and some of his other books too. I kind of want to read 'The Case for Christ' and 'The Case for a Creator' but I'm not super motivated because I am back into the Romance Novel phase!

I have 3 books that were made into movies...'A Walk to Remember' (long time ago), 'Water for Elephants' and 'Breaking Dawn'. All really good books. I remember that the movie 'A Walk to Remember' was a little different than the book, but I liked them both. The book 'Water for Elephants' was a little boring to me at first and it took me a while to finish it, but once I got to the climax I was hooked. I loved the movie especially because I love Reese Witherspoon. I did really like Robert Pattinson in it too! I was worried when I heard they were making it a movie, that it would be rated R and would be a little inappropriate but they left the parts of the book out that I was appalled by. I loved 'Breaking Dawn'. It was the only book I read of the series, but I'd seen all the movies. I can't wait for it to come to theaters in November!!! I'm sure I'll be going with a group of ladies :)

Well, I guess that about wraps up my reading experiences...well a summary and the highlights at least. I can't write about EVERYTHING I've ever read.

Day #3

So...My hubby deleted the list I had saved of the 30 day challenge (probably didn't know what it was), so I figured I'd take different questions/suggestions that I like from random ones. Here's day #3 of one I liked:

A picture of you and your friends: (Please take note that I look way different in each photo, haha...they are all from different points in my life and I tend to change my look)

This is me and my bestest friend (besides my hubby), Missy! She is one of the few people that is always there for me and does so much for me and my family! She is also one of the best, most generous people I know! I'm so glad to know her! This was taken last weekend at the beach!

This is my lifegroup from 707 (minus Heather :( ) Kristin (our leader) just had her baby so we all gathered for a photo.

These are my old friends from youth group. We were such a fun group, but unfortunately I don't see them much anymore. I try not to let it bug me and cherish the times I was with them.

This is me and Holly. We have been friends since 6th grade! We see each other every once in a while and I love hanging out with her! She's a lot of fun!

This is my older sister on the left and my cousin on the right! We were in florida (visiting my cousin and family)

This is my husbands cousin Angie. love her! This was at a murder mystery dinner at church! She was quite the actress

This is me and my little sister Madi. She is one of my best friends! We have so much fun together

This is Kelsey...we dont see each other much, but when we do, its like we're best friends again! Wish she lived closer!

Well, that about wraps it up! I have a lot of random friends from random times in my life and although sometimes I get kind of depressed and angry with myself for not being a better friend, I really appreciate all the friends I have!
