Hodge Podge and Mish Mash

Over the next month you will hopefully see some positive changes in my blog(s). I’m not going to go into any details, but I will say I’m really excited about it. So, if you visit here ever at all, just hang with me. I’m in the process of gaining some normalcy to my life and implementing some ideas I’ve had in my head for a long time. I just didn’t have the means to move forward. Now I do.

As many of you have read on other blogs, She Speaks was amazing. I don’t think I could say it any better than that. Today, the P31 office had a “She Speaks Debriefing Meeting” where we reviewed 3 categories of She Speaks. 1. Pre She Speaks 2. During She Speaks 3. Post She Speaks We discussed what worked and what we need to improve on for next year. This year’s conference was pretty close to excellent. Let me just say that next year’s will be even better.

My Mom is still home and continues to recover. Thank you for your prayers.

Jeff, the kids, and I will be leaving Saturday for Florida. We have a Disney vacation planned. This could not come at a better time for me. This summer has been hard on our family. This getaway to a literal “fantasy” land is a welcome retreat. I have missed Jeff and the kids so much. I have spent more than half of this summer away from them because I was caring for my mother and then I had She Speaks. Blake turns 16 while we will be at Disney. For his birthday, he and I are taking the behind the scenes tour of the Magic Kingdom. I think I’m more excited about this than he is! I will not be blogging while I’m away, but I will post a question to ponder each day I’m gone. I’ll also be tweeting and facebooking live from WDW.

Yesterday I received a prayer request at the office from a pastor’s wife whose husband is addicted to pornography. He stopped for a while, but she recently found out he was “not looking at porn” but looking at women in their bras and panties, bathing suits, etc. Anyway, they weren’t his wife. She feels defeated and useless to him. And she is hurting. This is just one request. We get so many similar to this. It breaks my heart. We have a fabulous prayer team, but could always use more. If you are interested in being on the P31 prayer team, let me know. It’s a big commitment, but if you have a heart for prayer and are looking for ways to get involved in Proverbs 31 Ministries, we could definitely use you. Get in touch with me if you are interested.

I realize this post was a hodge podge and mish mash of stuff, but that’s how I am these days. Hodge podge and mish mash….LOL.

Love to you and yours,

Melissa
