So far behind

So its been a few months since I last wrote, but its not been because nothing has been happening. In fact, its been because so much is happening its been hard to find the time or energy to record my thoughts. Thank you to everyone who has been asking for an update...and now its time, and read on through, b/c the best part is at the end :-)

School is so many levels of incredible--incredibly rewarding, incredibly exhausing, incredibly difficult, incredibly fascinating. Even after 1.5 semesters, I know numerous drugs, can place catheters, give shots, do a physical exam, clean bottoms, bathe people in bed, chart like a champ, and wear clogs with the best of them. If I have lost touch with you over the past 5 months, I apologize, but if you only knew how difficult its been academically, you might understand. I hope you do...

I'm involved in an amazing church called the Summit. Its in Durham and the Lord is using it in incredible ways to bless this town and bring Himself much glory. Through the church, I get to play a lot of music and lead a girls bible study for nursing students. Its awesome to be able to find ways to serve God while being a busy student and to find such joy in the work despite being beat most of the time. If you want to check out the church, the website is, and its well worth it. The Lord was very gracious in taking me to that church, and giving me a bit of a family there.

Finally, I would like to say for the record that I am no longer, I haven't gotten married, but I have met an incredible man for whom I care deeply for and am really excited to know and walk with. Every good and perfect gift comes from the Lord, right? And Chris is certainly a gift. He demonstrates great grace and patience with me, and he exemplifies to me the ever-pursuing love of God. I couldn't ask for a more honest, dear, kind, passionate man of God. If you are a prayer, then pray for us, that we would honor the Lord and seek first His kingdom.

So that's about it for now...a lot has happened since the big move in May, and its not been easy, but it has certainly been good. I look forward to writing again soon...
