Second, one of our Pastors at Cross Point is Blake Bergstrom, who I happen to think is one of the coolest guys you will ever meet. He loves people with an intensity that is so rare and infectious that you just want to spend time with him. Blake, his wife Ally, and their four girls are some of our dear friends and I would love to ask for your prayer for him as well. He is currently climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise money for a great cause. Also, please pray for Ally, Madison, Moriah, Montana, and Mercy as he is gone. I am so proud of you Blake!!!
Lastly, I want to introduce you to an amazing new etsy site. If you have little girls, you are going to HAVE to check this out. Remember when I told you I was teaching Audra to sew? WEEELLLLLL. She has found an amazing love for it and you will honestly not believe her creations. She has a background in art and she is able to make the most unique, precious dresses and kid’s clothes, and I wanted to introduce you all to her site. Here is her etsy site and here is her blog if you want to take a peek (please do! I know how encouraged she would be). I think her prices are really good given the detail and quality of the dresses…if you order one, I promise you won’t be disappointed 🙂 Love you, friend. SO proud to be your best, best, best, best… 🙂
I don’t think Audra will mind me sharing this, and I know how many of you can relate. It is such a dramatic shift to go from working to full time, stay at home mom, and as much of a blessing as it is, it can be really difficult. Sewing has proved to be a passion that is therapeutic to her, and I am ecstatic every time I go over and see her glowing with excitement, rows of new creations hanging in her laundry room. And I am here to tell you, she is incredible. I’m obviously biased, but I know you’ll agree 🙂
We are also going to be announcing our next Bloom book this weekend, and I think it’s one that all of us could use right about now…:) We are planning on doing it Sunday night so check back in on the Bloom site. You should go on ahead and join our facebook site if you haven’t yet, so we can all chit-chat.
Okay, and since this is all over the place, I wanted to mention that our taping at the Crystal Cathedral (Hour of Power) will air this Sunday (if you follow me on twitter you know about my little, umm, dress mishap :)). I have been all over the place doing promo (I also did Celebration with Daystar…what a sweet couple) and will be heading to Focus on the Family, 100 Huntley Street in Canada, Revive our Hearts with Nancy Leigh DeMoss, and a couple other things. I’ll keep you posted on those when I hear about air dates…I don’t quite have the energy to hyperlink these, but if you’re really interested I’m sure you can track them down with Google 🙂
I don’t know if I mentioned this either, but if not I hope you all will join us for this amazing event…It is really going to be special! And I have no idea what my face is doing up there with these other ladies, but wow. What an honor 🙂 Come join us!!!
I don’t love to go on and on about this kind of stuff because I don’t want to sound like an ego-maniac who just wants to talk about me, me, me…blech. Please know I just want to share in case you are interested 🙂
Sorry about the hyper-link festival!!!
Hope you all are having a beautiful week…I’ll be back over here soon!
Love to all,
