It's All New

Oh life. It's been awhile since I've been able to post a new blog. Life is really starting to move into the fast lane for Carson and I. I started my classes at Liberty University yesterday and I am so pumped about this year. I mean, I'm taking a history class, a math class and an english class -- THAT I'm not too thrilled about. But I get to take some really awesome Church ministries classes this semester and I'm also starting an internship with the Women's Ministry Dept. here at Thomas Road Baptist Church! When I think about how I came here to LU, met my husband, switched my major and changed my whole life it's crazy to see how perfectly God orchestrated the events in my life.

My father in-law has encouraged me to start posting again, which is good because this is a great outlet to write and express myself.

As for my current spiritual growth I feel like I suddenly looked up and realized that I'm in quite the rut. I have always felt so close and passion…

Desperate Women in the Bible

One of my passions -- along with singing/songwriting, is creating bible studies. It's not the easiest thing in the world but I've discovered how much I enjoy it during a Women's Ministry class last semester. For this class we had to pick a topic in the Bible or a theme in the Bible and create a Bible Study based on that theme. After much thought, I chose what is probably the most interesting topic for me -- Women in the Bible. That seemed a bit vague so I narrowed it down to Desperate Women in the Bible. After doing a study on different women and their roles in the Word of God I learned so much about the simple stories I had heard in Sunday School. My eyes were opened to the tragedies, the pain, hurt, betrayal, deception and loneliness of these women. I figured such would be an interesting Bible Study. To teach other women about how they could relate to different women in the Bible.

So, I have decided to post these Bible Studies on my blog! They need some tweaking and adjus…

Housewife of Lynchburg

Well, as of today I have been married to the love of my life, Carson Wagner for 41 days! My husband is the most exciting, sweet, sensitive, loving, compassionate, talented, and wonderful man that I could have ever asked for. We have had a crazy year so far. With planning a wedding, traveling part time, taking classes full time, working and having busy schedules. Life has finally slowed down and I have to admit that I miss the busyness of life!

I am blessed with a wonderful man of God who values our spiritual life together as a couple and having a healthy relationship. So, we have recently begun the "Love Dare" which is a 40 day challenge for couples to strengthen their relationship and help to develop their biblical love. I am beyond excited about everything that I am going to learn from it. Marriage has definitely been amazing, but has definitely taught me so much about myself.

I have found that today's society urges women to have an "I am a goddess" mentality. …
