These are some of the girls that I am spending time with. It has been sweet to see all of the work that the Lord has done in their hearts over the last year. This semester some of us are studying contentment. We are asking the question,"What does it mean to be content?" Pray that the Lord reveals Himself to us more this semester. Pray that these woman trust and believe that He is good and that the portion that He has given is perfect. Psalm 16:5-6
"Contentment is a sweet, inward, quiet, gracious frame of spirit, which freely submits to and delights in God's wise and fatherly disposal in every condition."
Our time at West Georgia this past semester has been such a blessing. Matt and I are so thankful and excited that the Lord has allowed us to be apart of His Kingdom building. We have been able to see many students over the course of the year come to know Christ personally. We have also been able to see many students grow deeper in their relationships with Christ. Our trip to New Years Conference was a wonderful experience. There was about ninety students from West Georgia that attended which is huge considering four years ago there was about six students that went! By the end of the week five students came to know Christ! The Lord is definitely working!
I can't believe Matt and I have been married for about seven months! It seems like I was just getting engaged yesterday. Since our wedding, our lives have been filled with many wonderful moments. Many of those moments being laughter! Most of the time it is me laughing at Matt's silly antics. However, there has also been moments where Matt has been hysterically laughing at the crazy things I have done, like put liquid soap in the dishwasher and cry when the kitchen flooded! Yes, this really did happen. By far the best thing about being married has been being able to experience the gospel through one another. In these moments, I am so thankful that I was blessed not only with a husband, but a husband that loves God more than anything.
