Since today is a holiday, I thought it might be fun to do something a little less serious and share some of my favorite things right now.
For starters, check this girl out. We are not reality show watchers ’round here, so the fact we “found” her is a miracle in itself. Last spring, we were flipping channels and were completely stopped by Xenia’s voice. The girl is, I believe, seventeen years old. Seventeen. My jaw never dropped over a voice before, but wow. When she sang the Script’s “Breakeven” and changed the words to “I pray to a God that I DO believe in,” Paul actually said, “That’s our girl!” 🙂 If you haven’t checked her music out, you need to.
Also sort of hooked on this digital version of the Bible right now. It’s on my iPad, and it’s how I’m reading the Bible in a year this year. I’ve never read a digital Bible before and I have to say, it really makes it fresh. It’s like reading it for the first time. This is what inspired our new Genesis Word Wednesday.
Totally re-reading this book right now. If only I could pull off description like Siri Mitchell…
Also just finished this book. I didn’t get to review it like I had planned, but still in love with Kaye’s ability to make me think I know what she’s up to and then surprise me. And it’s the little things, people, the little things that make a story sing. Love all of the little things she drops in.
And, finally, if you haven’t watched Kid History 6 on Youtube, you are totally missing out on one of the most hilarious videos ever. If you’re me. And Paul. And you have young children or even know young children. (The “guess” kid lives in our house and is a girl.) We have watched this repeatedly and still laugh every time.
