Where on earth have we been?

That’s the question my sweet friend recently asked. She said (in reference to my lack of blogging) she was worried for my spiritual well being :) Thanks for your concern!

Truth is, life’s been crazy getting ready for yet another fall semester! Before we look forward to the great things God has in store for our ministry (tonight being a speaking opportunity to the 1,000 girls going through rush)…here’s a review of where we have been the last month.

Colorado to South Dakota.

to Greenbay, Wisconsin for Joel’s birthday…

He was like a kid in a candy shop…I was like a wife who was trying to be a good sport.

Actually, it was pretty fun. We even got to be cheeseheads!

And go out on to the field with a pre-recorded crowd roaring for us.

Then on to Chicago to see my grandmother!

She is such a wonderful woman. She is precious in so many ways and is such a prayer warrior for our ministry!

It was also SO GREAT to see my family! I love you girls! I love you, Daddy!!

We had a fabulous day in the city, which I will highlight a little later this week!

We then headed from Memphis to Columbia. Then I flew from Columbia to Houston for an RGM board meeting (check out the new site!)

Houston to Columbia…and now we are home for good!!

Pray for tonight as my co-worker, Sarah, and I speak to a TON of girls who need the Lord. And, please pray for Joel and I as we start a new school year. It can feel very overwhelming to start again with our current leaders who have real and pressing spiritual needs, plus adding another class of freshman. Please pray specifically for the spiritual health of our student leaders that they will be laborers in this large harvest!


Top 10 Reasons to Run in My Neigborhood

Basically, I am in love with the aesthetic value of our neighborhood.  I took a new running route this week and was again reminded of why I love this area. I wanted to share the beauty with you!

Here are the Top 10 Pictorial Reasons to Join Me for a Stroll Through Our Neighborhood:




Reason #3–Front porches that beg to be sat upon… all over our neighborhood! (Honest confession, this pic is snagged from the internet, b/c I was too afraid I would get busted for being a creeper and hopping up on someone’s front porch to sneak a pic…but for real, cute front porches are everywhere here!)

Want to sip some lemonade anyone?



Reason #5–The beach is never far from our minds living here!


Reason #6–Come visit! We will take you here :)




Reason #1–The College Scene–Our students are really the reason we love living here! (One of which accepted Christ on Sunday night! I won’t steal Joel’s thunder on this one, but make sure you read our February prayer letter that will soon be at www.joelandkitty.com!)


Hope you enjoyed a pictorial tour of our neighborhood :)
