Beth Moore Simulcast

I had the privilege to spend most the day with the Mount Pleasant Southern Baptist Church at the Beth Moore Simulcast!! I loved every moment and am so grateful for the help of a great friend, Jessica! The ladies at the church were fantastic and encouraging!!! And Mrs. Moore spoke directly to my heart about a pending prayer… She said to let go of fear!!! And I did! Now I pray God will lead the way as I peruse this vision!!!

Chaotic life.. yes and no! Yes..

While I wanted to do the six items or less.. My wonderful green shirt got a huge stain from someone pouring and leaving Tide on the clothes.. Ick! And it was one of my 10 favorite shirts. Also one of my skirts don’t fit.. Meaning… The bouncing baby inside me has grown! Now, even though I know that I still have 4 pieces of clothing to use, I have decided to put off the challenge until I have this child in my arms! Then hope I can possibly redo the challenge! Ps 127:3
