all things new...

January--a month that brings lots of things NEW...of course, it brings a brand new year [and this year, a brand new decade!] and the ever infamous "New Year's Resolutions." No official new resolutions for me this year, but 2010 has brought a few new changes in our life so far:

1. this new blog: I've been debating creating one for a while now--thanks to Jenna & Emily for the final inspiration! Don't hold your breath for anything spectacular, but i just want this to be a place to share what is going on with us/random projects/thoughts/etc.

2. new j-o-b: I started my first "real" job this week working as a tutor at the Bowie Reading & Learning Center in Memphis. I'm only part-time and this is most likely a temporary position--still looking for something full-time and something I'm really excited about waking up for--call me a dreamer, but I'm determined! :) In addition, I still independently tutor the 3 students i have had since December via an ad I placed on craigslist.

3. new school for paul: Today, he hit the books again in pursuit of his bachelor's! Online classes through Fort Hays State University (in Kansas). Goal is to finish in 1.5-2 years. will have a B.S. in Technology Leadership. I am SO proud he is taking this next step, and I think he is excited about it, too.

4. new Bible study: Tonight we are starting a study at Central on developing a deeper relationship with our Savior through learning to have a meaningful (i.e. UN-hurried), consistent (i.e. Daily) intimate time with Him. SO excited we are doing this together and looking forward to what God is going to teach us. Just talked to a friend this afternoon who said, "we can't grow closer to the Lord and stay the same." so true! How thankful I am for this promise: "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!" 2 Corinthians 5:17

so, there it is--for better or worse--my first blog post :)


  1. Yay! I'm so excited you started a blog! I can't wait to hear about your new job and everything else thats going on with you. I'm gonna try and call you tomorrow night. We need to catch up big time!

  2. Rachael, I'm so excited about your blog!! So cute, and I'm so glad I can keep up with you better. Congratulations on the new job and I hope your break has been wonderful.
