The Latest w/ Exciting News!

2 Oct

DSC_0029A hearty warm autumn “hello” from Chicago! I feel so badly that I haven’t written anything in such a long time. I’ve been trying to keep the blog updated with pictures of events and such but I’ve slacked off in my personal posts. 🙂

I’ve been back home for over two weeks. I so badly miss my family. I think coming back after spending a complete four weeks with everyone was harder on me than it ever has been comparing my previous visits. However, it helps that it has been a whirlwind of activity. Mr. Gothard has been studying and writing and is very eager to share what he has been working on. Tuesday and Thursday evenings, we now have a special time of teaching. We come and try to take notes as fast as our little hand can move – haha! This past summer, Mr. Gothard wrote three new books (“Seven Courtship Secrets for a Successful Marriage,” “49 Secrets of Power for Living,” and “Lies We Believe that Cause Stress and Disease”) and he is currently working on a brand new book focused on overcoming the addictions of pornography. Every book he is working on tends to be what we discuss and learn about in our staff meetings. So, needless to say, we’ve been learning ALOT!

Sweet Janny

A few weeks ago, I had a young girl move into my apartment for a few weeks. She just left to visit home and today another sweet gal moved in. I’m very excited as I have gotten to know Janny over the last Journey that we both led. She is such a sweet example of a young woman devoted to Jesus Christ and entirely in love with Him. I’m anticipating some wonderful and special times together.

After work days, I’ve been keeping busy in the evenings with various things but I must admit that I really enjoy keeping my little place up to par. It gives me a special satisfaction and fulfillment when my home is organized and clean with potpourri simmering and candles burning- esp. in the autumn! I just rearranged and put out some fall decorations. So it looks as cute and as cozy as ever! I still bake quite a bit and I was delighted to have Mr. and Mrs. Heiniger over for dinner this past week. It was so special. I have been wanting to have them for quite some time as they are the sweetest couple  – I feel like they’re my surrogate grandparents!

Here’s a few pics of the house

This coming weekend will be a hub-bub of activity here at HQ. A Romanian delegation of doctors will be coming and spending a few days with us. I’m happy to be part of the “driving” staff and will be involved with the hospital tour they will be taking, shopping trips, a banquet, and meetings that are scheduled.

After the delegation, I think we’ll need to catch our breath and rest up just a bit because we need to be rejuvenated for our upcoming conference! This is the exciting news: I’m heading to Mexico the end of this month! Eleven of us, including Mr. Gothard, will be flying and ministering there. I have been looking forward to this trip for several months and now it’s just a few weeks away! I’m sure it will be quite the experience!

Well, I guess that’s the latest scoop! I trust you all are rejoicing in the goodness of the Lord and resting in His love! Please keep me in your prayers if the Lord brings me to your mind. I so desire to walk in His spirit and fulfill His special purpose for my life! God is good ALL the time!

    An update on your heart during the time since your brothers wedding would be good. If you could explain in detale why you are not married- i was told it was his falt- he did not want to serve the lord.

    Dear V.
    In regards to your comment, I’m glad you enjoyed an update! God has been so good and merciful and my heart is overwhelmed.
    In regards to my past relationship, I’m not sure where you received that information but it is not true. Please feel free to read my testimony that I shared in one of my previous blogs posts. It was posted on March 7th, 2009. Perhaps it will be an encouragement to you and give you a better look into what had happened and what the Lord continues to do in my life!
    Blessings to you always!
