Couch to 5k- week 1, day 2

Earlier this week I started the Couch to 5k running program. I'm not a runner, let alone very good at exercising, but this seems like a great way to start to enjoy it. I've always wanted to like running, but I never knew where to start.

So, I got these out of the closet.And charged up this bad boy.
Day two was better than day one, which makes the whole thing so much more enjoyable! When you can feel your body getting stronger it makes exercise so much more enjoyable. I got up early today and got to get out before the munchkin woke up. What an awesome way to start my day!

I'm currently on the hunt for the best running mix. What are your favorite songs to run to?

Munchkin Turns 1

Sorry for the insanely long blogging break. Hopefully that is over and done with!

Our little munchkin turned 1 on July 8th. In a matter of less than 2 years, we went from infertile to parents of a toddler.

Looking back on the past year, it's hard to deny that God takes care of us and provides. We have moved twice since Sophie was born. We have planted a new church in one of the most adverse cities in America. We're happy, healthy and striving after Christ's plan for us.

That doesn't mean it's been easy, though. We've messed up. We've hurt people we love, struggled financially, and sinned against each other, but thankfully we have been forgiven and are always covered by His grace.

And from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. John 1:16

Happy Birthday Sophie!
