January 2016 Recap

January 2016 has been a great month capped off today with a trip to the OSU vs. Maryland basketball game with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. My husband performed for over 500 students from the state of Ohio prior to the game. We were also given a tour of the OSU weight room which was pretty cool and exciting. I’m worn out an exhausted this Sunday evening. Our family has been passing around a nasty bug and it seems to be my turn for the leaky nose and spiking fever. Woohoo!

As January 2016 comes to an end I just wanted to highlight a few important posts from this month:

First of all, I began my first 24 Book Challenge for 2016. As part of the challenge I have posted in several memes which have kept me accountable for constant reading. I’m currently a few chapters away from finishing book #2 so stay posted for a new post soon.

This month I also began a series entitled, “Today at Covenant…” which is based on the sermons from my church by Pastor Travis Davenport. This month he preached on the Five Solas. You can find four of the five sermons below, but because of the FCA event I missed week five.

Sola Scriptura

Sola Gratia

Sola Fide

Solus Christus

I also completed a 21-Day fast along with members of my church. The purpose of the fast was to promote revival in the church. Additionally, I focused my prayer during this time on seeking God’s will for my service to him. During this time God spoke clearly and tangibly into my life and I look forward to sharing with you about the direction God is leading me in a few weeks.

In the area of fashion, this month I focused on my puffer vest, snow boots, and Alex and Ani. All three are winter favorites and things I’ve enjoyed adding to my personal collection.

Thanks for sticking around this month and being a part of my reading community. I’ve got some new post ideas and things coming up in February. I’m excited to continue the editing process this month for my novel. Not long now and I’ll be looking for Beta Readers for the next phase. Stay tuned!
