Talent Required?

Being a church planter's wife sure stretches you! I am being used in ways I never would have thought. Anyone that has known me for any length of time would be shocked to hear what I am doing now!

I am now the worship leader! (While our worship leader recovers from giving birth to her new son, a.k.a. my adorable nephew.) I have never been known as a great singer. In fact I was quite the opposite growing up. Thank God that when there is a need He provides the talent where it was lacking! I have improved so much and can actually carry a tune. Believe it or not, a few people have even said I have a beautiful voice! Praise God he provides!

It makes me talent required? Or does God honor you stepping out in faith, trusting that He will make it work? I'm really not sure. Maybe it's a little bit of both.

There is so much to learn on the church planting adventure! I can't believe all the things that I never even thought about! In the beginning stages, there's not a whole lot of people besides your family. I knew that in my head, but the reality still hits hard.

"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." Galatians 6:9

At times it can seem discouraging and overwhelming! But can not loose heart! Remember God's call for your city! Meditate on the promise he has given you! He will provide if we stay faithful!

I had to add a picture of my new nephew Saxon!

My New Obsession

Yellow Squash
I have discovered a new and productive hobby, at least if you have a little girl. I have been making play food out of felt! It is pretty easy and fun. I have been sitting in the chair at night and sewing play food while watching t.v. Most of the stitching is done by hand.

Lemon slice
I have found resources all over Pinterest . Some of the foods are freehand and a few I found tips and patterns for.  I really love all the tutorials that are on Helping Little Hands Blog. 

My favorite- Bag of Chips! I love how this turned out!
Cupcake- could use some tweaking.
Ice Cream Cone

Fried Egg
