Stirring one another up- in a good way!

"And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching."  Hebrews 10:24-25

I never imagined when I started blogging that I would meet so many women who would encourage me spiritually.  Knowing you all has been such a blessing!

Thank you Amy at Mom's Toolbox and Kimberly at Raising Olives who first encouraged me to try the 90 day Bible challenge.  I'm doing it three times this year (Lord willing) and it really has changed my life.  My love for God's Word has increased to the point that I no longer have a desire for or feel like I'm missing out on anything on tv (not even the Duggars or Food Network.)  And I'm so excited that this time around my friends Debbie and Roan are also doing the 90 day Bible challenge and Kimberly's doing it 3 times, like me.  I need the accountability!

Thank you also Kimberly for introducing me to Jamie Soles.  We listen to his two Psalms CDs, Ascending and Pure Words, in the car every single day.  It was so fun sitting in church recently and seeing my 4 yr old's face light up during the sermon when he recognized one of the Psalms we listen to. 

Thank you also Debbie for telling me about the Colossians in a year memorization program through A Holy Experience.  I'm excited to be doing Scripture memorization apart from what I work on with the kids- it's been a while. 

And thank you Sonlight for introducing me to the Harrow family's Sing the Word CDs.  The kids and I have memorized whole chapters of the Bible like Psalm 103 and are working on Psalm 19 using their music.

And thanks Mom for having always encouraged me to make God's Word a priority in my life.

Who's stirring you up, in a good way?

I just had to leave you with a picture of Calvin from earlier today.  He's only 3 months old, but his size and hair make him look much older, don't they?  Love that kid!


  1. Celee,
    He is so precious! I am doing the B90 challenge for the first time right now and have already been blessed beyond belief! Glad things are going well for you...has homeschooling settled down a bit ;)

  2. Nicki,

    Thanks for reminding me that you're also doing the 90 day Bible challenge.

    Has homeschooling settled down? Ha! More like the new normal. I'll be posting on our revised, revised schedule soon : ).


  3. You have stirred me on....I am always inspired by your posts, and I admire your ability to communicate so well. You also inspired me to do the B90. I have to say that it is changing my life. And I plan to do it again later this year. I NEVER imagined the huge benefits and blessings from reading large portions of Scripture in one setting. And you are right. My desires to do other things when I have a free moment are GONE. I just want to grab my iPad and keep reading my Bible. You know I lost 5 days of reading while at DisneyWorld. I am now only ONE day behind! One day! I plan to catch up today since we do not have any outside activities.
    I treasure your friendship.

I'm an on-the-run mom to 6 kids who studied and taught exercise science in a previous life. I love all things running, nutrition, and health-related. I usually run at zero dark thirty in the morning and am often quite hungry before, during, and after my run, but I live a rich, full, blessed life with my children, family, and friends. My faith in God is my anchor, and looking to Him and His promises allows me to live fully even when life circumstances are difficult. While running gives me an appetite, my desire is to hunger and thirst for righteousness more than for physical food.
